Continuity mistake: When Todd is listening at the closet door, and Laverne walks past, Laverne's stethoscope goes between shots from lying flat down by her neck to draped over to the right side.


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 Friend With Money - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: Watch the line appear on the wall as Kelso cuts through the wall into the "Luxury Suite." The line is being cut with a round, drywall cutting bit such as would be used with a drill or Dremel tool. You can see it spinning as the cut is made. However, when Kelso has pushed down the wall and points the tool at Cox and the Janitor, he is now holding a standard reciprocating saw with a flat blade which would cut very differently than what was shown.


My Way Home - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: 5-07 - Doug clobbers JD with the fire extinguisher when he's in the body bag. When JD asks him why and Doug explains with the fire extinguisher in his hands, you can see him flexing it and that it's made out of rubber.

My Old Lady - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The heart monitor lines change a few times, from being close to the neck going straight back, to going around the right side of the pillow. (01:25:50 - 01:26:50)

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 Old Man - S1-E19

Visible crew/equipment: Right at the beginning of the episode, when J.D. walks along and then stops in front of the desk, you can see the green tape marker on the floor which he stops at. (00:00:05)

My Tuscaloosa Heart - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Cox puts on his yellow jacket and pulls the hood over his head he zips the jacket halfway up. Two shots later it is zipped all the way up. We never saw him doing that.


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.


My Sex Buddy - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Dr Cox is with Eliott and Turk, his stethoscope changes from under his coat to over it between shots.


My Faith in Humanity - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: When JD is trying to make a point to Turk about Turk hitting him much lately, Turk raises his fist about to hit but stops and we see his hand is closed. It cuts and his hand is open, and cuts back to being closed.


My Two Dads - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: The third time Elliott exposes herself to a patient (this time to the dead one that Dr. Cox is about to pronounce), you can see quite plainly that she doesn't raise her scrub top enough to reveal her breasts. In fact, the shot is wide enough that if she had, her breasts would have been fully visible on camera.

My Way or the Highway - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: The amount of bites out of Elliot's powdered doughnut changes back and forth between shots.


My Bed Banter & Beyond - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When JD tells Carla and Turk that he and Elliot had sex in the kitchen, Elliot is shocked and says "How could you possibly think it's an appropriate conversation for work?". It cuts to JD lifting his hand up and about to answer when it cuts, but now his hand is down.


My Intern's Eyes - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: While Dr. Cox is explaining to JD why he allowed the patient to worsen, the remaining "man" card in the pocket of JD's scrubs raises and lowers between shots.


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.
