My New Role - S8-E7

Audio problem: Season 8, episode 7 "My New Role": Before the opening credits, JD taps a pencil against a cup, and other various devices in the hospital start making a song. At the end of this song, the Janitor can be seen playing the bongo. The rhythm of his hands do not match the rhythm of the bongo sounds at all. After the song ends, JD turns to the Janitor, who is again playing the bongo. This time, however, his rhythm of his hands do match up with the rhythm of the bongo sounds.

Factual error: In the scene where J.D goes to Elliot's apartment and finds Dan there he sings along to "Thank you" by Dido. However that song is from the album "No Angel". The album cover shown in the episode is "Life for rent" which doesn't feature the song.

My Quarantine - S4-E16

Other mistake: When the Janitor plays with Kelso 'double or nothing' for tossing the cotton ball a second time in the jar, Todd tells Kelso he now owes him $600, in the end it was $700. This isn't a 'double or nothing' amount of money the Janitor could generate. They started with $5, so the count would be 5 - 10 - 20 - 40 - 80 - 160 - 320 - 640 - 1280 and so on.


Elliot: Dr. Cox, does this lipstick make me look like a clown?
Dr. Cox: No, Barbie... It makes you look like a prostitute who caters exclusively TO clowns.
