To Kill a Talking Bird - S4-E14

Other mistake: It seems very out of character for Niles, who is so obsessed with cleanliness, to be happy with having a bird flying loose in his kitchen.


Goodnight, Seattle (1) - S11-E23

Revealing mistake: You have to be very quick to spot this, but when the cannon goes off Niles drops the ring, you can actually see it drop between Eddie and the camera and bounce away from Eddie. In other words, it certainly doesn't go anywhere near the pate.

Something Borrowed, Someone Blue (2) - S7-E24

Other mistake: When Daphne comes to the Winnebago she doesn't close the door properly, you can see it opening slightly again. When she and Niles drive off, it's closed.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Across the show, Marty is supposed to be about 21 years older than Frasier (he turns 65 in season 5). There are at least two problems with his age - Frasier is supposed to have been born in March 1952 and in Season 5 (Roz and the Schnoz) Marty mentions going on shore leave as a single guy in 1952. Even if he was confused about the year, Frasier didn't call him on it. He must have done just a short stint in Korea as he was already a cop when he met Frasier's mother - they met at a murder scene, and he must have been 20 years old at the most. She was already a full fledged psychiatrist.

Legal Tender Love and Care - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: Roz is at Frasier's to tape some CDs, and we see her take some cassettes out of her purse. The shot goes to Frasier and then back to her - the cassettes have disappeared. After he explains that he can't stay, we see Roz open her purse and take out the cassettes again.

A Word to the Wiseguy - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: Frasier is on the phone at KACL with Jerome's girlfriend and the reflection in the glass shows him raising his hand to his face, but the next shot returns to him - his hand is on the console. There was no time for him to have shifted positions normally.

Three Faces of Frasier - S7-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the show, Marty and Frasier are sitting in the living room talking. Eddie is curled up right next to Frasier on the couch. There are a number of shots focused on Frasier and Eddie and on the bottom of the screen one can see something flick by a couple of times - and in one shot there is definitely a couple of inches of a grey metal pole of some sort, about the thickness of a broom handle.

Crock Tales - S11-E22

Other mistake: This is for the episode "Crock Tales" (the 22nd of the season). Almost all the flashback sequences are wrong in time. The one from 2003 has Niles and Daphne coming back from their honeymoon but they married in 2002. Although not ever couple take their honeymoon directly after they've married, the wedding episode "Ring Cycle" mentions them going on their honeymoon.

Three Blind Dates - S9-E17

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Niles, Roz, and Daphne are sitting on the couch. Niles has put Frasier's biography on the coffee table but when the shot changes and Frasier comes in, Niles is suddenly holding the bio in his hand.

A Man, a Plan and a Gal: Julia - S11-E2

Continuity mistake: Martin is standing at the door talking to Frasier about taking Eddie to the vet. From one shot to the next the leash changes position from being over Eddie's head to being under his chin - without enough time for this to happen naturally.

Beloved Infidel - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Frasier is at the dining room table with Niles looking at Niles's childhood journal. He has his left hand ready to turn a page but in the next shot his hand is on the table, with no time for a natural shift.

The Bad Son - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: Niles and Daphne are on the couch talking about the meteor shower and Niles is holding Daphne's hand between his right hand and his left knee. In the next shot, without enough time for this to happen naturally, his right hand is on his right knee.

Crock Tales - S11-E22

Continuity mistake: For "Crock Tales" (11x22). In the 2002 flashback Niles and Daphne have just slept together. Actually they first had sex in 2001.

Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Frasier comes home from work and Joe is explaining what work needs to be done. The shot changes as the phone rings and suddenly Frasier's coat, which had been over his left arm, is over his right arm.

Frasier's Imaginary Friend - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the start of the show, Daphne is helping Marty with his exercises and as she goes to answer the door, the towel on his little table changes position noticeably.

Decoys - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: As part of his divorce settlement from Maris, Niles gains ownership of Shady Glen, Maris' mountain home. After this episode, Shady Glen is never seen or mentioned again. What's even odder is that Niles and the rest of the characters over the years go to mountain cabins, which makes no sense because wouldn't they just use Niles' place?

Where Every Bloke Knows Your Name - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Marty's poker buddies are reminiscing about parenthood, the pile of poker chips in front of Roz change from shot to shot.

Three Dates and a Breakup (1) - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Daphne has the bag of groceries on the floor between the coffee table and the couch - when Stephanie leaves the apartment the loaf of bread is sticking out on the left side but when Marty comes into the living room, the bread is now on the other side of the bag and leaning to the right.

Daphne Hates Sherry - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Marty are sitting at the breakfast table, talking about the weather, Frasier's newspaper is sometimes folded over and sometimes not, although he never changes it from shot to shot.

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

Continuity mistake: When Sherry tells the boys she's a sleepwalker, she has her bag slung over her right shoulder. In the next shot, without time for change, she is holding the bag in her left hand.
