Scrubs

My Fifteen Seconds - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Ted is explaining to Dr. Kelso about the stethoscopes being too tight, Ted is holding one in his hands. When seen from Dr. Kelso's point of view, the earpieces (white) are close together but when seen from the side they are crossed far past each other.

Guy

My Butterfly - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Carla tells Turk off the second time (for not standing up for her) she is to the right and Turk is on the left, but when she leaves she walks to the right and passes Turk as he says "You're absolutely right baby and I apologise". This is because they re-used the shot from the first version of that day where Turk was standing on the right after he stood up to Kelso.

My Journey - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sean is talking to Betty the seal his arms go from being by his sides to clasped in front of him between shots.

Jeff Swanson

My Clean Break - S3-E11

Deliberate mistake: When Carla shows Elliot what she looks like in the bedpan and Elliot says she looks like Alice Cooper, you can see her reflection in the bedpan. However the camera is to the side of Elliot's head, so if we can see her reflection, she wouldn't be able to.

Audio problem: If you look at the band's mouthes in the back round, they are completely out of sync with the song for a verse. (00:19:05)

My Best Friend's Wedding - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: As JD and Turk are walking away from the camera as they are playing the golf game in the hospital car park, Turk is wearing a white visor in the front shot, but not in the behind shot. It's not hidden behind JD's arm either.

My Fifteen Seconds - S3-E7

Audio problem: When Turk comes in to tell everyone that Dr. Kelso has ruptured his eardrums, Dr. Cox starts to say, "Bob you stupid mother..." from the back view. Then it cuts to a different camera angle, and he is mouthing the words, "stupid mother" again.

Continuity mistake: Carla's left hand goes from holding the coffee cup with whole hand to just gripping handle the next second. (00:00:40)

My Rule of Thumb - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Carla & Elliott get into the back seat of the vehicle after attempting to hire a male prostitute, you can see them clearly in the close shot. In the next (long) shot, when it is revealed to be a police cruiser, there is a cage between them and the camera. This cage disappears again in the next close shot.
