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.

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)

No Contest - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: The photographs and news items relating to the Boston Barmaid Contest have been clumsily pasted onto a real newspaper. The paper upon which they were printed is cleaner and whiter than the off-white newsprint and the photographs have much greater contrast.

The Boys in the Bar - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Sam tells everyone it's closing time, he asks Harry how he got into the bar whilst he is playing snooker. He replies and then places a white snooker ball two inches behind a blue ball. There is also a yellow ball about three inches to the right of the blue ball. In the next shot, the yellow ball has suddenly moved a foot away from the blue ball. The yellow ball returns to its original position three inches away from the blue ball in the next shot.
