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 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 Cake - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Cox is duct-taping Dan to the bathroom wall, you can see that the tape across Dan's forehead is already stuck before Cox sticks it.

My Boss's Free Haircut - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: When Carla and Elliot are walking through the graveyard, Elliot falls into an open grave. After she has fallen off the bottom of the screen, you can see her ankle flick up in the bottom of the picture, showing that she actually just fell down on the floor during shooting.

My Heavy Meddle - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: When Elliot and JD are at the baseball nets, Elliot gets hit by a baseball. If you look closely, particularly in slo-mo, you can see that the ball goes behind her head, and is probably digitally removed from coming out from the other side.

My Five Stages (2) - S5-E13

Revealing mistake: When Kelso hits Dr Hendrick's bike with his car at the end, you can tell it is not Kelso. While you can't make out his face, you can see that the man driving has dark black hair, while Kelso has light brown/grey hair.

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.

My Lunch - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: When JD is trying to avoid Jill Tracy in the store, he latches on to the side of a shopping cart and throws 2 white bags on top of the groceries. The overhead view of him hanging onto the cart shows the bags missing.

My Mentor - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the apartment there is a cardboard box on a table, with a strip of blue tape on it and a tube of paper sticking out of it. A few shots later another strip of blue tape suddenly appears on the box and the tube of paper has vanished. (00:02:35 - 00:03:15)
