Old Flames - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when Norm is talking and he says "we caught a little movie this afternoon," he starts to take a drink from his beer, the shot cuts to behind him and he is still drinking. Then the shot changes - his mug is sitting in front of him, and he starts to take a drink. (00:00:40)

Get Your Kicks on Route 666 - S10-E2

Continuity mistake: When Frasier is sitting at the bar talking about the trip he is going to take, Cliff walks over and sits down. There is a beer sitting in front of him - he pushes it forward and Sam moves it. The shot changes and the beer is back where Cliff had first moved it, and he is holding his own beer. For the rest of the scene his beer keeps appearing and disappearing while the other one keeps changing position.

Bad Neighbor Sam - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: When Sam puts the paper from John on the bar it is next to a bowl, the next time we see it there is now more space between the bowl and the paper. Part of the paper is in the air, then the next shot when Sam picks up the paper it is lying flat on the bar.

The Norm Who Came in from the Cold - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: Carla tosses Rebecca an egg she is supposed to take care of, like a baby, for a $5 wager. The egg bounces off Rebecca's hands and over the bar onto the floor. In the next scene, Lilith and Frasier are walking into the bar and the egg was shown as being smashed on the bar itself. The next cutaway, with Lilith walking by the same spot, has no egg on the bar anymore. (00:03:40)

One for the Road (1) - S11-E26

Continuity mistake: After Don leaves the bar, a few minutes later Frasier shouts at him, "Run, Don! Run like the wind!" and Rebecca is left sitting alone at the table crying, but when it cuts to the overhead shot of the bar we see Don is still sitting at the table, even though he left five minutes earlier. (00:07:05 - 00:08:15)

One for the Road (1) - S11-E26

Visible crew/equipment: When Rebecca leaves Don at the table to relax while she gets champagne to "celebrate the answer", it cuts to an overhead shot as we hear the TV host introduce Salman Rushdie and Dr. Ruth, and the set lighting can be seen as well as the boom and mic moving around at the top of the screen. A few minutes later the mic can be seen bobbing again in the overhead shot from the same angle. (00:03:20 - 00:08:20)

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know whether the coloured-in photos, which appear throughout the opening titles sequence, are real or made up for the show? If they ARE real, when George Wendt's name appears there's a shot of a man holding a newspaper with 'WE WIN' as the headline - does anybody know what this referred to?

Answer: Here is the source of the "WE WIN" photo: http://www.oldnycphotos.com/nyny587ac.html Brooklyn, of all places.

Chosen answer: The pictures in the opening sequences are real pictures of people enjoying alcohol (from various dates), and are not meant to represent or include any of the cast members. The "we win" sign (most likely not a newspaper headline) is referring to the end of prohibition (1933) A fitting tribute to a show about drinking alcohol.

The word "Nazi" appears in the caption to a story underneath the headline. Maybe the headline refers to the Nazi surrender.
