Continuity mistake: Niles says on Daphne's wedding day that he told her he loved her on his 3 day anniversary, making Daphne's wedding his 4 day anniversary. At Nervosa, Mel says it's their 4 day anniversary, when at this point one more night has passed and it's now 5 days since they married.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: The butler and Frasier are discussing the new president of the opera board and Ferguson pours Marty a cup of coffee. In the next shot, over Marty's shoulder, we see he already has the cup in his hand, although there was no time for this to happen naturally.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: Roz is at Frasier's soirée joking with Mr. Worth about selling him some giftwrap. Just before she says "everything but my bracelets", her drink and hat switch from her right hand to her left and her canapé from her left to her right. In the next shot they've switched back again.

Cranes Go Caribbean - S8-E24

Audio problem: In the restaurant Frasier says "There's an ocean of fresh fish not 15 feet away," and you can even see the blue reflection of the water and it's movement as it laps against the shore. Why then, can't you hear waves crashing at all? This is especially strange as in every other scene in this restaurant you can year it, but not in this particular one.
