The Impossible Dream - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Daphne mentions she had a dream about a gymnast, she is looking at Frasier, but a quick shot change and her head is turned 180 degrees looking at Niles. This couldn't have happened in real time.

Love Bites Dog - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Bulldog goes into the booth towards the end of the show, and puts his gong and cowbell on the console to his left. When he says "attention, sports fans", the cowbell has suddenly shifted to being in front of him, even though he didn't touch it.

Love Bites Dog - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Sharon and Bulldog are arguing about golf at Cafe Nervosa, and she has her arm outstretched on the table. As Bulldog says, "If we leave right now", her hands are folded together on the table, without enough time for the change.

Love Bites Dog - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Bulldog is on the phonein the hall at KACL and he throws a tennis ball at Frasier, who stumbles around trying to catch it. During the scene we see an extra behind Bulldog go into one of the rooms - but we see her do it again just a split second later - and the second time she has a paper under her arm, where she had nothing the first time.

Love Bites Dog - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Marty and Daphne are in the car going to the shoe store, she stops at a red light, as does the black car on her left. During the shots that follow, the car on the left, although always black, is a different car in different shots.

Head Game - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: A fan next to Niles is holding his nachos container by its side as they talk. In the shot where he gets up to leave, his hand is under the container, with no time for this to have happened naturally.

Three Days of the Condo - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Daphne are talking about the condo board lady leaving pink slips for Marty. There is a pink slip on the credenza which moves several inches towards the couch without either of them moving it.

Love Bites Dog - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Niles are in Cafe Nervosa - we see Frasier put his coffee down but as Niles says "Spanish leather", we can see Frasier's cup up in the air again on the right - with no time for the change.

The Impossible Dream - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Niles and Frasier are looking at books trying to figure out Frasier's dream. When Daphne and Marty come in the door, the shot shows that the book that was on the end of the table has moved quite a distance and is now in front of Niles.

Roz's Turn - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Roz and Frasier are in Bebe's office, and Frasier is exclaiming about her taking digitalis, the water glass in front of her is empty. The rest of the shots show it being about half full, even though she never refilled it, and there was no water source to be seen.

Three Dates and a Breakup (1) - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, when Niles and Frasier are in Cafe Nervosa, the man behind them has a paperback book which is open with all the pages fanned out, and then it is lying flat, then fanned out again, and so on. It is not a case of him changing the book naturally, as the positions of other things in the shots change slightly as well.

The Unnatural - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Niles are sitting at the dining room table looking at old photos. Niles pours a cup of coffee, adds cream, and reaches for a spoon. In the next shot we see him reach for a spoon again.

Three Dates and a Breakup (1) - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: As a waitress walks from the back of Cafe Nervosa to give Frasier his show tickets, the tray under her arm flips 360 degrees so that at first we see the cork side and then we see the metal underside when she reaches him.

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Frasier is in the kitchen pouring mini chocolate chip cookies from a bag into a bowl while talking to Daphne. The motion of him pouring (and the sound) doesn't stop while he talks but when the shot changes the bag is on the counter next to him.

The Impossible Dream - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Frasier is leaving the booth - Roz is standing there holding several tapes in her hand. When the shot goes back to her, she has papers in her hand and there's no sign of the tapes. In the next shot, the tapes are suddenly on top of the tape machine.

Our Father Whose Art Ain't Heaven - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: Martin and Frasier are in the restaurant and Marty says "you're eating light" as Frasier has his menu up at chest level. The next shot, without enough time for change, shows the menu lowered several inches and held at a different angle.

Three Dates and a Breakup (1) - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Daphne are on the elevator; Daphne has a bag of groceries. In some shots several inches of a loaf of French bread is seen, but when she gets off the elevator the bag is sealed up with no bread visible. The bread becomes visible again in later shots as they talk at the door and go into the apartment.

Enemy at the Gate - S10-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Frasier is standing through his sunroof to speak with the drivers stuck behind him in the parking garage, one shot shows Frasier's body and much of the rear window which features a very clear reflection of the boom mic.
