Duke's, We Hardly Knew You - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the show, when Niles, Frasier, and Martin are at Duke's, Niles says, "I'm not here just for you, Dad" and he puts his hand on Marty's shoulder. The next shot shows him standing about two feet away, with his hands by his side. (00:21:20)

Flour Child - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Arleen the cab driver is in labour. She pushes her hair back with her hand in one shot, but in the next it is back on the steering wheel, without enough time for this to happen in real time. (00:05:50)

Sleeping with the Enemy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Roz is talking about confronting Kate and says "you're damn right we're going to tell her", her arms go from being folded in front of her to down by her sides with no time for this to happen naturally.

Everyone's a Critic - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Frasier is sitting on his couch with Poppy, dropping hints about having an arts show on KACL - she has her hands folded on her knee. As Daphne says "he means your mother", the shot changes, and Poppy is suddenly holding a glass of wine, with no time for this to have happened.

Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Niles first takes out a hanky to put to his bleeding nose, it is folded in a square and remains that way for a couple of shots. Soon, though, without Niles changing it, the hanky becomes rectangular.

Halloween (1) - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: While talking to Niles at the party, Daphne's eyes are tearing because of an allergy. In one shot we see her put a tissue to her right eye, but the next shot shows her dabbing it to her left eye.

Radio Wars - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: Similar errors occur in two different scenes: in the first breakfast scene, the coffee pot is sitting on the table but in the next shot Daphne is pouring herself a cup, with no time for her to have naturally picked it up. Later in another scene, Niles is there for breakfast, picks up the pot, and pours himself some coffee. In the next shot, the pot is on the table, again without enough time for him to have put it back.

And the Whimper is... - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Roz and Frasier are sitting on the couch discussing how the other award nominees are courting the judges, the amount of champagne in Frasier's glass goes down dramatically without him drinking any.


The New Friend - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: Roz goes to Frasier's to tell him Luke has been seeing someone else - while they are drinking in the kitchen, the level of her drink changes without her drinking or having a refill.

The Doctor Is Out - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When Frasier is talking to Patrick Stewart (who is putting his coat on) in Cafe Nervosa, the collar on Patrick's coat fixes itself between shots, without him doing anything to it. In particular, one of the lapels is stuck under the coat for one shot and is suddenly normal in the next shot.

Miracle on Third or Fourth Street - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Early in the show Frasier is wrapping a Xmas present for Roz. The shot cuts to Chopper Dave and then back to Frasier. A bow and gift tag have appeared on the gift, but there wasn't enough time for that to have happened naturally.

Momma Mia - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: Marty brings a six-pack of beer to the cabin, and puts it down on the table where it stays for the scene - but during the scene one of the cans is sticking out for a few shots, then returns to normal later. No one went near the beer during that time.

The Botched Language of Cranes - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: About halfway through the show, Daphne, Roz, Niles, Frasier and Marty are all in the living room. Roz hands Frasier a piece of paper, which he takes and starts to unfold it - in the next shot, he is taking the paper again.

A Crane's Critique - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: Martin goes out to a baseball game with a famous writer that Frasier and Niles admire. While he is out, they read one of his books he accidentally left behind. When the author returns, he ends up holding the pages of the book in his hand, whilst standing in front of the fireplace. In one shot he is holding them in his left hand, but when the view cuts to another angle, he has them in his right hand. This occurs just before he goes outside to throw the pages off the balcony. (00:20:25)


Head Game - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: While Marty and Daphne are watching the basketball game on TV, he says "it's completely different", the remote suddenly appears on the table beside him; it wasn't there before and wasn't in his hand. A couple of shots later, when he yells "unbelievable!" it's gone again.

Hot Ticket - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Trevor asks Frasier and Niles about "the hat scene," you can see Frasier's hands resting on the bar away from his glass. In the next shot, his hands are clasping his glass.

The Show Where Sam Shows Up - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode after Sam mentions stewardesses he claps his hands, and his seat belt (which was caught on something) moves across his chest to the regular position. Cut to a wide shot of the car and Sam's seat belt is back to the position it was in before. (00:21:05)

Hot Ticket - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Niles are talking about getting tickets for the play. On the table next to Marty's chair there's a newspaper that changes position noticeably during their conversation. Neither of them touched it and Martin is not in the scene.

Docu.Drama - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Martin is eating at the coffee table, you see the front of the tomato sauce/ketchup bottle, then the back, then the front again. Also the spice that was on the table moves without anyone touching it.

Dad Loves Sherry, the Boys Just Whine - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sherry brings in the bottle of wine, it's in a paper bag which is twisted around the bottle when she puts it on the coffee table. The next shot shows the bag has been loosened around the bottle and is quite wrinkled. No one touched it in that short time.
