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.

The seemed to be in perfect order, with all the files piled neatly on top of each other.

My Rule of Thumb - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: The first time Turk and Cox are talking in the gym, watch the man on the machine behind Cox. During the first shot of Cox, the man's face is obscured by the pulley for a pull down bar. Cut to Turk then back to Cox and the pulley has moved enough so that the man's face is now visible. Cut to Turk and then back to Cox for the third time and the man's face is blocked again. The viewing angle of Cox is the same each time so it is not a camera angle difference.

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".

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.

Quotes

Carla: You can deny you like her all you want. But, I know for a fact, that every time you guys are done "playing racquetball" or "having a conversation" or whatever it is you crazy kids are calling it, you like nothing more than to just lie next to Jordan and watch her sleep.
Dr. Cox: It would be impossible for me to lie next to Jordan, she sleeps hanging from a ramp in the ceiling, wrapped in a cocoon of her own wings.
