My Sex Buddy - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When the family goes to throw Carla through the window, watch the window they throw her towards. The window is made up of at least three sections of glass, each no more than 2-3 feet wide with metal posts between sections. When the shot changes and Carla (well, the dummy of Carla) hits, the window is now only two sections, each about 5 feet wide. The easiest way to tell is watch the metal post farthest to the right. When the shot changes to outside, that post, which should now be farthest to the left, has vanished.

My Day At The Races - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: Season 5 - Episode 3. After Turk has operated on the patient without anesthetics and Dr. Cox says they can publish it in Almost Magazines, the clock on the wall to the right of the screen shows 11:05. When it cuts the clock shows 5:40.

Their Story - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: When Turk is talking to someone about the teenager getting breast implants, in the first shot you can see he is talking to someone in a a blue shirt with a stethoscope - i.e. JD. However after this shot, JD has vanished and the conversation is suddenly with Todd.

My Choosiest Choice of All - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: As Kelso is walking out the door with the blue paint on his face, one hand is on the push bar for the door and the other hand is down. Cut to the shot of him walking out the door and now his right hand is pushing the door open and his left hand is just coming down from pulling the alarm wire above the door loose with no time for him to have changed positions.

My Cabbage (1) - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: While J.D. and Carla are visiting Mrs Wilks near the start she has a tray of food and a bit of paper next to the tray in front of her. In shots of J.D. and Carla the table in front of Mrs Wilks where the food was is completely clear and the food and paper keep reappearing between shots.

My Perspective - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Turk marks the location for the surgery on Pvt. Dancer, he makes a horizontal mark on the left side of Dancer's abdomen. You can also see a small scar on Dancer's right side opposite the mark. A couple of shots later, Dancer is shown from the front and the mark has now switched to the right side above the scar.

Carla: You can deny you like her all you want. But, I know for a fact, that every time you guys are done "playing racquetball" or "having a conversation" or whatever it is you crazy kids are calling it, you like nothing more than to just lie next to Jordan and watch her sleep.
Dr. Cox: It would be impossible for me to lie next to Jordan, she sleeps hanging from a ramp in the ceiling, wrapped in a cocoon of her own wings.

Season 1 generally

Question: In one episode (I think it's My Balancing Act) Dr Kelso is trying to scare the interns, so he pulls his face off and 'becomes' a guy with crazy ginger hair and a very annoying loud voice. I'm a Brit so that's maybe why I don't recognise this guy. Is he supposed to be someone famous?

Answer: This is an American comedian called Scott Thompson, more widely known by his stage name of "Carrot Top".
