Frasier

Roz in the Doghouse - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: About 1/3 through the episode, they are in Roz's apartment. If you watch when people enter or leave the apartment, the door has a handle lockset. It also has a lock cylinder about 1 1/2 feet above it on both sides of the door. The problem is, the side of the door has no drill hole where the latch assembly should be: it's just solid wood. The lock isn't attached to anything that would enable it to work.

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: The guy who plays Clive in this episode has one of the most appalling accents I have heard. He's apparently from Manchester, but sounds like a sort of cockney South African. His accent slips around all the time; it's very poor. I wouldn't normally submit it, but his is so shockingly bad I doubt anyone would be fooled into thinking he was British.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: First, not every single person from one area sounds the same. People can be influenced by a parent/other family members from different areas. I am native to the Southern region of the USA, but one of my parents is Northern. I have been told that I don't sound like a stereotypical Southerner. We don't know anything about Clive's family. Second, I have seen quite a few movies or TV episodes with actors whom I know to be actual British people, and Clive doesn't sound much different than any of them.

I am English and believe me that accent is the worst example of English I have heard in my life.

To Thine Old Self Be True - S7-E20

Revealing mistake: When Reagan drops her bag in the hallway when she is talking to Frasier, a lettuce rolls towards him. It didn't fall from her bag: if you look closely you can see it was tossed into the frame from just outside the camera view, obviously to ensure that it would land at Frasier's feet for the comic effect of him kicking it back to her.

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: The view from Frasier's apartment shows the Space Needle prominently in the background, however, the elevator that takes visitors from the ground to the observation deck is frozen in time midway to the top. This was corrected after the first season.

Halloween (1) - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Frasier reveals to everyone that Roz is the one who's pregnant, we see Peri Gilpin step into the shot at the top of the stairs too early. She steps back behind the wall and then walks back out again a second later to say her line.

The Apparent Trap - S7-E9

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Frasier and Lilith meet in the living room, where Frederick has created a romantic atmosphere, Frasier has a long speech about how Lilith is not going to get him back, ending with "I need to be finessed!" and Bebe Neuwirth goes out of character and begins to giggle, before she quickly covers her mouth and pulls herself together. Though Lilith might have found Frasier's comment amusing, it would definitely not be in character for her to giggle like that.

The Adventures of Bad Boy and Dirty Girl - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: Frasier comes in complaining how workmen in the service elevator have dribbled chili dog on his foot. He is holding out his shoe saying "How ever will I get that stain out", and Eddie runs over and starts licking what we think is the shoe. Frasier makes a comment about dog saliva being the universal solvent. In fact, Eddie does not even touch the shoe, but licks the floor in front of Frasier. Obviously the floor was treated with something Eddie would enjoy licking up.

The Innkeepers - S2-E23

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.

High Crane Drifter - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: Near the end, in Cafe Nervosa, the guy that wants to sue Frasier gives Niles a push. Niles stumbles backwards, knocking over some chairs and the coat rack before falling down, taking the table by the window with him. If you look closely just before he hits the table, the woman sitting there (rather than moving out of the way), very subtly pulls on the table, so as to upend it so Niles can go down with it.

Murder Most Maris (2) - S11-E8

Revealing mistake: At Cafe Nervosa, after Niles has had a mini-breakdown, he has shed his clothes, boxers and all, all over the place and is supposedly naked in the corner with only a newspaper for privacy. When Frasier has him stand up to wrap aprons around him, one can see that David Hyde Pierce is actually wearing light-coloured briefs.

Detour - S11-E21

Revealing mistake: During the scene where Frasier is dropping Charlotte off at the train station (the first time) you can see the background behind him shows that the car they are in is turning left. Yet we can see his hands on the top of the steering wheel and during this time he never turns the steering wheel.

Roz's Turn - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: Bebe is in the booth telling Frasier how she misunderstood him about Roz. As she says "wink", we can see Frasier's reflection in the booth's glass - his head bobs up. The next shot we see, though, is of Frasier's head bobbing up - shot at the same time, we just see it a split second later.

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.

Moons Over Seattle - S9-E24

Revealing mistake: It's clear the "Manchester" pub scene was filmed in the United States, as the pint glasses used are American pints and not imperial pints as used in the UK, which are approximately 20% bigger.

Roz in the Doghouse - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: About 1/3 through the episode, they are in Roz's apartment. If you watch when people enter or leave the apartment, the door has a handle lockset. It also has a lock cylinder about 1 1/2 feet above it on both sides of the door. The problem is, the side of the door has no drill hole where the latch assembly should be: it's just solid wood. The lock isn't attached to anything that would enable it to work.

Frasier: And though washing one's hands twenty to thirty times a day would be considered obsessive/compulsive, please bear in mind that your husband is a coroner. Thank you for your call, Jeanine. Roz, whom do we have next?

A Day in May - S8-E23

Question: Beyond the obvious (he hasn't gotten over it or is still upset about it) is there a reason Martin didn't want to say anything at the parole hearing? And what was the point of showing this?

Answer: While he hasn't gotten over it, he also took into account what the shooter's mother said. He refused to make a statement either for or against him. He can't forgive the shooter, but he's gotten past the anger.
