Revealing mistake: I think there might be something wrong with the eels in this episode. They don't move in the tank, despite being alive and don't move when taken out either. Moreover, you cannot actually see any in the tank with one exception. Rubber replacements not up to standard obviously.

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.

Audio problem: As Frasier walks into Niles' kitchen, Daphne is on the phone, talking. We hear a hoarse sound, like Frasier's voice, saying "Daph" or "Dad" but it makes no sense as she is on the phone talking to someone, and he is heading for the fridge. When she hangs up, she and Frasier start talking about her employment situation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: Frasier goes to get a newspaper out of the curbside kiosk, and catches his jacket in it. He places the newspaper to his right on top of the rack beside it and the shot changes to Regan coming out of the florist behind him. Then we see the newspaper in his left hand, without having time to have picked it up.
Continuity mistake: Daphne puts a couple of Christmas bags on Marty's chair; the one facing the camera has a Santa on it and behind that are pieces of pink paper sticking up about 6 inches. The pink paper is sometimes visible, and sometimes isn't, as the scene progresses, from the same angle.
Continuity mistake: When Sherry first meets Frasier and Niles, she puts her coat down towards the center of the couch. A few shots later, although no one has moved it, it shifts to the left and her purse, which wasn't visible before, can be seen.
