Sam at Eleven - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: The very first shot after the opening titles shows cars driving in front of the bar. If you look at a brown car that drives past, you can see the director sitting in the director's chair, reflected on the car. (00:03:00)

Truce or Consequences - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam, Carla and Diane are in Sam's office and begin laughing Coach walks in, laughs for a few seconds, and leaves. Right after that the obvious shadow of a piece of equipment (probably a camera) passes across the floor in front of Diane. (00:22:15)

Truce or Consequences - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Diane finds out that Gino is not Sam's son, the towel that is on Coach's shoulder keeps changing position. In one shot it disappears then when the camera is facing him half is in font and half in back. When the camera is to his back most of the towel is in the back.

Endless Slumper - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rick Walker is in the bar with Sam, he recognizes Coach as a former pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox. Yet in future episodes of Cheers, Coach is always identified as a former third-base coach.

Woody: What's shakin', Mr. Peterson?
Norm: All four cheeks and a couple of chins.

Question: Was Sam supposed to have been married and divorced before the first episode? I swear I remember him saying something about having been married in an early episode, but I can't remember specifics.
