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. (00:00:10)

What is... Cliff Clavin? - S8-E14

Continuity mistake: At the point Cliff is disputing the fact that he thought his answer was right, on the right-hand side you can see the woman player's, Agnes, score. It says $400. Then in the next shot it changes to $3300. Then in a little bit later it changes back to $400. (00:14:30)

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.
