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.

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Plot hole: In this show Daphne's former fiance, Clive, shows up. They had been engaged for several years in England. However, in Series 1, episode 11 (Death Becomes Him), Daphne talks about never having had a serious boyfriend, and goes into some detail about how people tried to set her up with eligible men. As Daphne is open about everything else, there seems to be no logical reason for her to not mention she'd been engaged.

Add time

The Impossible Dream - S4-E3

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.

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.

Add time

A Crane's Critique - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: Martin goes out to a baseball game with a famous writer that Frasier and Niles admire. While he is out, they read one of his books he accidentally left behind. When the author returns, he ends up holding the pages of the book in his hand, whilst standing in front of the fireplace. In one shot he is holding them in his left hand, but when the view cuts to another angle, he has them in his right hand. This occurs just before he goes outside to throw the pages off the balcony.

Continuity mistake: The gang is reading through the script and Roz cues Bulldog and as she does we can see Gil has his script opened up on his knee. As the shot goes to Bulldog, Gil's script is now folded over and his pencil is in his right hand. He wouldn't have had time to change position.

Add time

Head Game - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: While Marty and Daphne are watching the basketball game on TV, he says "it's completely different", the remote suddenly appears on the table beside him; it wasn't there before and wasn't in his hand. A couple of shots later, when he yells "unbelievable!" it's gone again.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, the KCAL gang are in Frasier's apt. celebrating the SeaBee awards. Bulldog is gloating about his win. At one point he has his left hand out in front of him and up in the air - the next shot the same hand is behind his back.

Add time

A Lilith Thanksgiving - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Lilith and Frasier are at Dr. Campbell's (the first time), he makes them tea. A shot shows him preparing it, pouring it, etc. But in the next shot, Frasier and Lilith are already holding their cups. There was not enough time for him to have passed them the cups.

Continuity mistake: When Roz begins her mock interview with Frasier, Niles is holding the microphone in her direction. After she says "from Bellingham", he moves it to the left for Frasier's answer.

Add time

Roz's Turn - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Roz are in his kitchen talking about audition tapes, sometimes he is holding a glass of sherry and sometimes he is not; it is not a case of him putting it down, as the scene goes to quickly for that.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the show, Daphne, Niles, Sherry, and Martin are in Frasier's bathroom where he is trying to take a bath. He starts talking to Sherry - she is sitting on the ledge at the end of the tub. From one shot to the next she has her left leg crossed over her right, then her right over her left, and then both legs uncrossed. She did not have time to shift her position and there is no "residual movement" that would have been natural had she been fidgeting while he talked to her.

Continuity mistake: Sherry is about to tell Frasier and his date a joke - Marty and she have their arms around each other - the first shot shows her large orange purse is over her shoulder (between them) and behind her but the next shot shows it still between them, but in front of her - simply impossible to have changed its position so quickly.

Continuity mistake: During the closing credits, Niles brings a breakfast tray into his dining room and puts it down in front of Marta, who is reading a newspaper.

Add time

Add time

A Lilith Thanksgiving - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: Frederick appears in the kitchen to talk to his parents, who are ignoring him. In one shot he is covered with spots and in the next, he only has about half as many.

Add time

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Add time

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.

Add time

Ham Radio - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: The gang from the radio station is at Frasier's rehearsing for the radio play - Gil is sitting to the right of Marty's little table - he leans towards the table and puts his hand around a bottle of water but in the next shot he is pulling back from the table with a pencil in his hand, not the water. At the same time Bulldog, next to him, while Gil is reaching for his water, is holding his own water in front of him. When Gil pulls back with the pencil, Bulldog's arm is pulling his arm back from the left too.

Add time

Daphne Hates Sherry - S4-E21

Other mistake: When Frasier enters the apartment, Martin and Sherry are talking in the kitchen. If you listen carefully to what they're saying, their conversation makes no sense. Martin says something along the lines of "Daphne is really a very nice girl" before suddenly, in a very different tone of voice, he says "You're right, we're not getting enough privacy around here". Seems like a big chunk of conversation was edited out.

Ham Radio - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Frasier is sitting with Martin and Niles in Cafe Nervosa telling them about the radio play. As Marty says "we were a simple people", Frasier manages to open his briefcase, take out the script, put it on the table, and put his briefcase back on the floor and be sitting still - all in about 3 seconds. This just wouldn't be possible in real time.

Frasier mistake picture

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

Continuity mistake: When Martin and Shelly are having a fight, Frasier puts a small bag down, which is yellow on one side and has a logo on the other.

However, when Martin is talking about "things that bugged me," you see the bag has inexplicably rotated so the logo is now facing us.

Roz's Krantz & Gouldenstein are Dead - S4-E15

Add time

Roz's Turn - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Frasier, Roz and Bebe are arguing, Frasier says something like "she has no reflection." When he says this you can just see Bebe's hands in the shot and they are clasped together. In the next shot they are instantly quite far apart.

Add time

Ask Me No Questions - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: In this scene, Martin and Daphne are arguing about Martin buying the gift basket for Daphne because Daphne knitted the sweater for Martin. Daphne says the basket cost too much, so Martin begins to take items from the basket and put them on the table. Then as the argument progresses Martin and Daphne decide to take back their gifts. Martin places the gift basket on his chair (the two items that were taken from the basket are still on the table) and Daphne takes the sweater. A minute later they make up and agree to re-exchange the gifts. Daphne gives Martin his sweater and when Martin reaches for the basket, all items are there, including the ones that were still sitting on the table when he put the basket on the chair.

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!
