My Musical - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: The EMT on the right of the screen has his hand on his hip, then on the trolley in an instant cut.

My Long Goodbye (2) - S6-E15

Factual error: When Lloyd is driving Jack back and listening to speed metal, his gear stick is in park.

My Balancing Act - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Kelso gives Cox the rounds and Cox is surprised, he starts spanking himself with the clipboard. Notice the two women about to walk past Cox. One is in a red top, one in pink.

My Road to Nowhere - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the janitor falls out of the moving van (having just woken up and not realising it was moving), we see him hit the ground and roll a number of times. By the end of the shot, his head is almost touching the roadside fence. However, when the shot changes to get a close-up on his face, he is some distance away from the fence.

My Princess - S7-E12

Continuity mistake: Dr. Kelso already quit his position as Chief of Medicine, but he's back in the beginning of this episode.

My Mentor - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Elliot asks Kelso if there is a special way to communicate with the nurses. Kelso grabs Elliot by the arm and his hand being placed on her sleeve and pull her to the side while still holding her arm, when the camera angels changes from the close-up his hand placement is lower and not on Elliot's sleeve but on her skin. (00:07:00 - 00:07:40)

My Clean Break - S3-E11

Other mistake: In the last shot of the final scene, when JD and Elliot start down the wheelchair ramp outside of the hospital, an "extra" woman walks right in front of them. She was nowhere to be found in front of JD and Elliot before they started walking - she simply appears in front of them and walks down to some paramedics holding a stretcher.

Our Driving Issues - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kelso and Cole are sitting in the bed talking, watch the position of Kelso's arms and the juice box he is sipping from. The juice box, straw, and Kelso's arms all move around from shot to shot for the entire scene. Towards the end of the scene there is even one point where Kelso puts his arm down, the shot changes, and Kelso puts his arm down again.

Guy

My Fault - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: At 18:42 in the show, it shows Turk and Carla talking about re-inviting the female head of surgery to their wedding. During this shot, in which Turk and Carla are closest to the camera, Turks ID badge is facing the wrong way. When the camera angle changes at 18:46 to showing Turk and Carla from the other side (as if from the female head of surgery's POV) Turks ID badge is now showing the right way. It stays like this for the rest of the scene. (00:18:40)

My Hard Labor - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: Turk says two players are needed to finish the game. Carla later says she has finished it several times herself when playing in the middle of the night.

My Rite of Passage - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the end after JD tells the interns he wants them all to wave, they all start waving their arms. The shot cuts to a different view and Rex's hands are instantly back on the table.

Guy

My Blind Date - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: If you watch when Alex slips on the wet floor, you can see the woman from behind has longish hair, extending past her shoulders. In subsequent episodes we see Alex's hair is much shorter than the one that falls in this episode.

My Changing Ways - S4-E25

Continuity mistake: When the girl in the bathtub comes crashing through the ceiling, she has her hands covering her upper chest and no bath bubbles. The next shot there is a great deal of bath bubbles all over her and we cannot see her hands covering her chest. As the guy falls through the ceiling, the bubbles on the woman again disappear and we see her hands.

My Long Goodbye (2) - S6-E15

Other mistake: When Elliot sits down next to imaginary Laverne, Carla must have imagined her brushing against her sleeve on her blouse.

My American Girl - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When JD is talking to Carla in the cafeteria, she tells him that it's nearly 5:00. But up to that point, you can see the bottom half of the clock behind him and the hour hand is not visible. It only appears after she tells him the time.

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.
