Where There's Smoke There's Fired - S3-E21

A Word to the Wiseguy - S3-E15

Audio problem: Around the time when Niles is talking about "wealthy white women," there is a shot when his mouth is moving but there is no sound coming out. It then suddenly changes to a shot when you can hear what he is saying.

Sleeping with the Enemy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Kate is holding file folders in front of her chest and she asks Roz, "Is there a problem?" she then answers the question herself - "no" - and suddenly she is holding her files over her stomach, with no time to have done this naturally.

Frasier Loves Roz - S3-E22

Deliberate mistake: About halfway through the show, Roz and Daphne are in the kitchen talking. Daphne pours water into the teapot - but there is no steam coming from the kettle, nor any sound of a boiling/just boiled kettle. No self-respecting Brit would make tea with water that wasn't boiling.

You Can Never Go Home Again - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: The flashback is set in 1993, but all the characters look the way they did three years later. Most noticeably, Frasier's hair is short and not long and wavy like in the first season. Daphne's appearance has changed quite a bit too.

The Friend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: Frasier's new friend Bob pulls away from the table in Cafe Nervosa - his plaid hat is still on the chair next to him. In the next shot the hat is suddenly in Bob's lap, even though he couldn't possibly have put it there in that time.

She's the Boss - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: During the show, Daphne and Martin are having breakfast while talking to Frasier. Daphne removes her blue napkin from her lap at one point,and puts it on the table; a short time later we see her remove it from her lap again.

Continuity mistake: When Niles is drunk in Frasier's appartment, he puts a six-pack of beer cans on the table by Martin's chair. The pack has changed position on the table later on when Frasier is talking about empowerment, without anyone touching it.

Add time

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Audio problem: Near the start of the show, Frasier is in the booth at KACL, and has told Roz off and is glaring at her through the glass. As the shot shows her face, however, we can see the reflection of Frasier in the glass - he is smiling and his lips are moving as though he is talking. However, there is no audio to match his speech.

Add time

She's the Boss - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Roz is talking to Frasier, Gil, and Bulldog at KACL and has her hands in front of her, with her mug in her left hand. In the next shot, as she says "everyone at her last station was scared to death of her", her mug is in her hand tucked up under her arm - with no time for her to change positions naturally.

Add time

She's the Boss - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Kate is arranging things in her office and has placed a black and white box on her desk. As she is telling Frasier how she wants him to spice up his show, the box changes position by about 45 degrees although no one touches it.

Continuity mistake: Niles is filming is father in his recliner, trying to record his life story for posterity.

Add time

The Last Time I Saw Maris - S3-E8

Add time

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Martin and Daphne are laughing at Eddie who has taken a pill to calm him down - in one shot he has a paw up in the air, but in the next shot both paws are pointing sideways. The shot changes again, and Eddie is back in the first position. He had to time to change naturally.

Add time

She's the Boss - S3-E1

Add time

Crane vs. Crane - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Frasier is in Mr. Safford's study talking to him. As Frasier says "a little unconventional," his right hand goes up to his chin, gesturing. As Safford answers, Frasier's hands are grasped together in front of him, with no time for natural change.

Add time

Frasier Grinch - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Just before the closing credits, Marty opens his gift from Frasier - a dressing gown, which he puts back down on top of the box in a disorganized heap. By the end of the scene, a shot shows the dressing gown neatly folded in the box.

Add time

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Eddie is sitting in Martin's chair while Daphne feeds him pate from a plate on Marty's table. At the same time she is scratching his ears.

Add time

Sleeping with the Enemy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Roz and Frasier are standing in front of the bulletin board at KACL. As they talk, from shot to shot, the papers on the bulletin board shift position.

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.

Add time

Sleeping with the Enemy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Roz is talking about confronting Kate and says "you're damn right we're going to tell her", her arms go from being folded in front of her to down by her sides with no time for this to happen naturally.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Niles first takes out a hanky to put to his bleeding nose, it is folded in a square and remains that way for a couple of shots. Soon, though, without Niles changing it, the hanky becomes rectangular.

Add time

The Focus Group - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: Frasier knocks the drinks over in Manu's newspaper stand. They had been sitting on a plastic tarp over some newspapers. In the next shot the plastic tarp is draped much differently, covering the papers more. No one touched it in the meantime.

Add time

Crane vs. Crane - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Frasier is arguing with Niles in the kitchen and removes a large bottle of water from the fridge. He takes off the cap, and pours water into a glass. Immediately the shot shows the bottle capped again while Frasier and Niles continue talking.

Add time

The Last Time I Saw Maris - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, while Noel is getting Frasier to sign his Star Trek petition, Roz puts a blue plastic cassette into the machine to Frasier's left.

Add time

Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Frasier comes out of the bathroom, he has shaved without water, and has at least 4 bits of tissue with blood on them stuck to his face. Within 5 minutes he is greeting his guests at the door and his face is completely smooth with no sign of a cut or scrape.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the show, Roz and Frasier are at the radio station, in his booth. There is a clipboard lying on the console to the left.

The Friend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: Roz is showing Frasier some faxes in his booth at KACL - as she holds them they are folded over. As she says "are you nuts?", the papers are flat in her hand, no longer folded over, with no time for her to have changed them.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.

Add time

Frasier Grinch - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Frasier and Niles are in Cafe Nervosa and Roz comes in, with lots of Christmas gifts. She manages to unload them, take off her coat and get into a chair between the guys - all in a couple of seconds. It all happens too quickly for "real time".

Add time

Frasier Grinch - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Frasier's in the toy store and another customer comes in with a carrier bag of educational toys he bought elsewhere. As Frasier tries to talk him into selling him the toys, some shots show just the bag with the toys in it and other shots show a roll of green wrapping paper visible about 6 inches above the bag.

Add time

Look Before You Leap - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: As Frasier is saying "too often we shrink from doing things we really want to do", the shot goes to Roz, and we can see the reflection in the glass shows that Frasier's mouth and hand movements do not match what he is saying.

Add time

The Show Where Diane Comes Back - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Frasier is in the kitchen and gets the sugar out to sprinkle over the profiteroles. As he starts shaking we get a wider shot and we see there is sugar all over the stove top, pastries, plate, and counter - way more than there should be for the amount of shaking going on.

Add time

Police Story - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: Fairly early in the show Frasier has his dad call the police station to ask about a female officer Frasier is interested in. Marty asks for her name, hangs up, and gives Frasier a lot of information about Maureen that he couldn't have possibly learned in that short a time.

Add time

It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Kate are in the airport, sitting down and talking, her arms switch back and forth from being folded to unfolded (holding her boarding pass). This happens a couple of times, without time for her to change position.

Add time

Frasier Loves Roz - S3-E22

Add time

You Can Never Go Home Again - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Niles and Frasier are at Marty's old apartment and Niles sits down on the couch. Eddie is sitting next to him, staring. During this scene, the shots of Eddie show him moving from fairly close to Niles, to about 10 inches away, and then back again. He has no time to change position naturally.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.

Add time

The Friend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: In the last scene, at the Cafe, Bob puts a dollar on the table in front of him. A waitress brings a cup and puts it down - the dollar has disappeared. In subsequent shots it reappears.

Add time

The Friend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Bob are in Cafe Nervosa talking. Bob has a book in his hand. In another shot he is moving his hands around, even though there was no time for him to have put the book down.

Add time

The Show Where Diane Comes Back - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Diane is sitting in Frasier's apartment, at the dining room table, talking with him. Her hands are in her lap in one shot and then up in front of her in the next - in mid-sentence.

Character mistake: Noel Shempsky (the supposed Star Trek Nerd) attributes the quote "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one" to James T. Kirk, when it was Spock who said it.

Sanguis

Martin Does It His Way - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Niles dumps Aunt Louise's ashes out of his shoe and onto the floor, there is carpeting under the pew. In the closing credits when the janitor is sweeping up the ashes, the carpeting is in a different place.

Add time

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: Halfway through the episode, the new station manager says she has to fire someone. If you look at the top of the screen by the white box on the wall, you can see the boom mike.

The Focus Group - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: Frasier is having a glass of sherry, sitting on his couch, talking to Niles and Martin. As Marty says "let's go have dinner", Frasier throws his hands up - in real life he would have still had the sherry in his hands. There was no time for him to have put it down.

Add time

You Can Never Go Home Again - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Roz has a cassette in her hand as Frasier says "call-screening squelches all that," - and the next shot shows no cassette in her hand, without time for her to get rid of it.

Add time

Frasier Loves Roz - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: While Daphne and Roz are talking in the kitchen, Daphne takes a carton of milk out of the fridge - and puts it down on her left - in the next shot it is on her right (with no change of camera angle).

Add time

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).

Add time

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.

Add time

Chess Pains - S3-E18

Other mistake: When Frasier sets off the fire alarm Daphne comes running from her bedroom at the end of the hall across from Martin's room and Frasier's room. That is incorrect and impossible since Daphne's room is on the other end of the condo and separated by the balcony. Given the condo layout, it is impossible for Daphne's bedroom to have a door across from Frasier's bedroom.

Add time

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."

The Friend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: While leaving Nervosa, Bob has the BBQ book in his lap. After Frasier leaves, the book is back on the table.

Casual Person

The Focus Group - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: The shot after Roz says "Roz Doyle, radio producer, single" shows the guy nearest to the window in the other room with his left hand next to his mouth and the woman next to him with her hand next to her chin. The following shot shows the man closest to the window with both his hands next to his mouth and the woman sitting next to him with her hands on her lap.

Casual Person

The Last Time I Saw Maris - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Daphne is holding a fire poker when she is having a psychic message. Just after Niles says "Oh dear God", the poker is held straight up. In the next shot, the poker is partially lowered.

Casual Person

Where There's Smoke There's Fired - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When everyone is sitting at the table having dinner, the amount of food on Bebe's plate changes repeatedly. She adds extra food twice, once from the pot and once from Martin's plate, but the difference in portion sizes changes more times than that and without time for it to be eaten.

Quotes

[Martin sees Frasier has a lot of cuts on his face from shaving.]
Martin: I thought you were just going to slit your wrists. Looks like you went for death by a thousand cuts.
Frasier: I cut myself shaving because I was shaving without water. Why was there no water? Because I had to move your chair, which gouged the floor, which made me call for Joe, who found bad pipes, which called for Cecil, who ate the cat that killed the rat that LIVED IN THE HOUSE THAT FRASIER BUILT!
