Scrubs

My Rite of Passage - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When J.D. walks up to the table where his interns are sitting, Keith and Rex are fighting with their table knives and have them crossed. The shot switches to a view from the other end of the table and suddenly Rex's knife is on the table and he is facing J.D. but Keith's knife is up in the air as if he was still fighting with Rex. There is not enough time for Rex to put his knife down and turn to face J.D.

My Mirror Image (2) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: S6-E01. When Perry is lecturing the interns, the sweat stains on his shirt change between shots. For example, when we first see him there is no sweat around the collar, but in close-ups there is sweat around the collar.

My Fifteen Seconds - S3-E7

Other mistake: The second '15 second countdown' with Jill Tracy, just after she's been to the toilet, actually lasts 24 seconds. They slowed it down to fit more dialogue in.

His Story II - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode you see JD walking through the hospital with a huge pile of files in his hands. He see the women with the big breasts and looks after her until he sees her butt. The camera changes to JD where he is making a face in disgust. Look at the files. A few files from the top moved and it looks like they are about the fall off. JD turns around and the next shot is again at JD after he has turned around. Look at the files again. The seemed to be in perfect order, with all the files piled neatly on top of each other.

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.
