The Late Dr. Crane - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: Niles has just met Mel in her office, and she is wearing a white coat - she is brushing off her sleeve in one shot, and then unbuttoning the coat in the next, without enough time to have switched that quickly.

Moon Dance - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Early on in the show, Martin is trying to get Eddie to shake a towel off his head while Daphne stands behind the dog, folding laundry. In one shot she is standing with the folded towel over her arm; in the next shot she is folding it again. When she goes to the door, there is something red on top of the laundry basket, but when she returns the towel is back in the laundry basket (it's not the towel Marty put on Eddie's head: that's sitting on the coffee table).

To Thine Old Self Be True - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: Niles comes into Cafe Nervosa holding a newspaper and begins to talk to Frasier and Roz. As he says "mere words cannot", the shot changes and the next shot shows the newspaper has flipped over to the other side in his hand. He didn't have time to do this naturally.

The Focus Group - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: When Manu pulls down the metal front over his kiosk, Frasier has his umbrella in his right hand. By the time Manu pulls it all the way down and catches his hand under it, Frasier's umbrella has shifted to his left hand, even though he never transferred it.

The Apparent Trap - S7-E9

When a Man Loves Two Women - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Niles are in the cafe, Niles says "So what was Fay doing at your apartment last night?" When he says this, you can see he has just started to stir his coffee with a spoon. The shot then changes and the spoon has vanished.

A Word to the Wiseguy - S3-E15

Character mistake: In the scene where Jerome Belasco turns up unannounced at Frasier's apartment, Daphne tells him she's psychic and guesses that he's an osteopath. After Jerome leaves, Daphne says she thought he seemed very nice. Frasier turns to her and says, "This from the psychic who said he was a chiropractor."

Semi-Decent Proposal - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: In the show from Series 7, "Big Crane on Campus", the Jean Smart character is introduced as Lorna Lenley - ex-prom queen from his high school with a volatile personality who has a brief relationship with Frasier. In Episode 21, series 8, she comes back as the same character - ex-prom queen, had a fling with Frasier, etc. - but now her name is Lana. She was billed as Lorna in the series 7 show and as Lana in the series 8 show. The names may be similar but are definitely different names.

Bad Dog - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, when Bulldog throws a cup of coffee in the direction of teh armed man, the cup rolls to the floor, but when the shot shows Bulldog getting up from the floor, the cup is lying on the edge of the counter.

Fool Me Once, Shame on You, Fool Me Twice... - S2-E14

Dinner Party - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: At the start of the show Niles is playing the piano. He turns to talk to Frasier and his hands are in his lap, but in the next shot one hand is back up on the piano keys, with no time for this to have happened naturally.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: The elevator doors in Frasier's building are just a wood looking board with no safety edge sensors on the doors. These are required to detect an object between the doors. Yet, when a character touches the edge of the doors, they open back up.

Forgotten But Not Gone - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: While Marty and Frasier are eating Fredericka's cooking, Frasier puts his knife down on his right, then switches his fork to his right hand. After he says "motion carried," the shot shows his fork back in his left hand.

Continuity mistake: Frasier is on the couch talking to Niles. As he says "I simply release my humble words", his hand switches from being around the middle of his bottle of water to being around the neck, with no time for natural change.

Caught in the Act - S11-E15

Continuity mistake: Daphne comes into the Cafe and asks Marty, "Where have you been?" and her purse is on her right shoulder. In the next shot her purse is in her hand, but not enough time had passed for this to happen naturally.
