My Big Brother - S2-E6

Character mistake: JD is having problems with someone dressed in a gorilla suit, who is slightly shorter than he is. JD sees the janitor, who is considerably taller than he is, eating a banana and accuses him of being the gorilla. If the janitor were as tall as JD, maybe, but you would not confuse someone shorter than you with someone taller, regardless of costume.

My Day At The Races - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: In the scene where J.D. first starts the bike portion of the triathlon, you can see his feet pedaling. You can see that there is no chain on the gears, allowing him to exaggerate the speed he is pedaling.

Continuity mistake: Right after Elliot asks Molly about the patient, you can see the Janitor standing next to the table behind Molly. But in the close-up shots on Molly, he is gone.

My Old Friend's New Friend - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: In the end, when Carla comes out of the hospital and sees the Mini Cooper, JD's hands changes between shots. In one of the far shots he is holding the handles on his scooter, but in a close-up shot he is holding his helmet.

My Jiggly Ball - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When JD is in the wheelchair talking to Dr Cox and he almost tells him he was a gymnast in high school, a female doctor in a white coat is walking in his direction behind him.
