Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Frasier is on the plane sitting next to a woman who finds out he's only on there because he wants to pursue her.

Frasier Gotta Have It - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: Niles has his dog over at Frasier's. He sits down on the couch and the dog is facing the door.

Continuity mistake: After Frasier passes the pink box with the birthday cake over to Daphne the box is closed. But when the doorbell rings the lid is about halfway open, with no time for this change. (00:04:15)

The Innkeepers - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Niles tells the chef to serve the souffle in a large bowl, there is a large bowl of food next to him with no utensil in it. When Niles says "Table Twelve is still waiting for their entree", there is suddenly a utensil sticking up in the center of the bowl.

Secret Admirer - S6-E6

And the Whimper is... - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Just after Roz puts Bebe's bag on the table at the Cafe, we see her back at the counter - there was not enough time for this to happen naturally.

Three Valentines - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: When Niles is engaged in his ironing fiasco, Eddie is watching his every move. When Niles heads to the kitchen to get spot remover, Eddie is sitting on the footstool. The next shot shows Eddie turned to watch Niles - but he is now in the chair; it is not just a tricky angle, as he actually lays his chin on the back of the chair. There was no time for Eddie to jump from the footstool to the chair.

Frasier: Niles, I would shave my head for you.
Niles: A gesture which becomes less significant with each passing year.
