770 mistakes

The Babysitter - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: Right at the start when Frasier is talking to Niles in the furniture shop, at one point he says "Don't you hear that," and holds his hand in a fist. The shot cuts instantly to Niles and you can see his hand is now about a foot higher and his palm is suddenly open.

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.


Lilith Needs a Favor - S10-E13

Continuity mistake: In one shot Niles is on the phone with Daphne, in the next he's hung up the phone and put it away, without as much as a "goodbye".

Bla-Z-Boy - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: When Frasier comes home, just after Marty has sprayed oil on the carpet, the pattern of the spray changes considerably from one shot to the next.

You Can Never Go Home Again - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Daphne is on the phone with her mother and has a dust rag in her hand. She holds out the phone towards Frasier and when the shot goes back to her, the rag is all bunched up in her hand - it has been loose before. There was no time for her to change it.

The Show Where Diane Comes Back - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Frasier, Martin, Niles, Daphne, and Diane are having dinner at Frasier's and he gets up to get dessert. Niles offers to help him and puts his table napkin in his chair. As he walks towards the kitchen, though, the napkin is lying next to his plate.

Goodnight, Seattle (1) - S11-E23

Visible crew/equipment: (This is for the last episode, "Goodnight, Seattle.") When Kenny opens the door to use Frasier's bathroom, you can see a light pass across the wall above the fireplace.

Sea Bee Jeebies - S11-E10

Character mistake: Frasier tells Niles that the article on him will be in the winter/spring issue of Seattle Broadcaster. The man who interviews him introduces himself as a journalist from the Seattle Times.


The New Friend - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Roz opens her gift of a bracelet from Frasier, he puts it on her and she feels guilty, so she goes to call Luke - but as she leaves the table, there is suddenly no sign of the box the bracelet came in.

Frasier's Edge - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: Marty gives Niles a mug which says "World's Greatest Psychiatrist." He puts it down on the coffee table with the lettering facing the camera. He then leaves with Daphne and a few shots later, we can see the mug again, but it is turned around and we see the blank side. When Frasier leaves the apartment, it's back in its original position. Nobody ever touched it.

First Date - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: While they are in the living room, Niles is telling Frasier about Phyllis, and he has his bottle of water in his left hand but as the shot changes and Frasier says "Oh, good lord", the bottle switches to Niles' right hand.

Where Every Bloke Knows Your Name - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Daphne is playing darts with Frasier, he says, "I scored again," and we see her sweater sleeve is pushed up her arm. But when she comes back with, "That's not something we hear very often," the sleeve is completely covering her arm. In the next shot, it's pushed up her arm again. There was no time for the adjustment.

Flour Child - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the show, Roz takes a large get well card into Frasier's booth - she has some papers as well, which are on top of the card. She lowers the card and the next shot shows the papers are under the card, with no time for changes in position.

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

Continuity mistake: When Julia answers her cellphone, she bunches up her napkin in her hand, but the next shot shows the napkin lying flat on her lap again; this would be almost impossible to do in such a short time with only one hand free.

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.

Something Borrowed, Someone Blue (1) - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: Just before Simon returns from California, Roz's purse is lying flat on Frasier's coffee table. As she goes to pick it up, the purse straps are sticking up, even though no one went near it between shots.

The Zoo Story - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When Frasier is sitting on his couch, talking about his new agent, the white bag containing the video Niles brought over changes position on the table behind him.

The Perfect Guy - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: As Frasier tells Bulldog that he shouldn't feel threatened by Clint, we can see the edge of a clipboard moving on the bottom right screen, where Roz would be. However, in the shot before that, Roz had pretended to punch Bulldog - she had nothing in her hand and wouldn't have had time to pick anything up.

Ham Radio - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Frasier is sitting with Martin and Niles in Cafe Nervosa telling them about the radio play. As Marty says "we were a simple people", Frasier manages to open his briefcase, take out the script, put it on the table, and put his briefcase back on the floor and be sitting still - all in about 3 seconds. This just wouldn't be possible in real time.

Three Dates and a Breakup (2) - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Marty is explaining why he broke up with Sherry, we can see his blue jacket hanging up on the book by the fireplace - as he says "I said it back", the coat is no longer there. It does reappear in later shots.

Frasier: Roger, at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.
