Continuity mistake: In the intro, JD comes running back into the shot after trying to change out of the same exact outfit Dr Cox is wearing. JD has the "Baby Gap" TShirt stuck & wrapped around his head turban style. The shot switches to over his shoulder and the shirt is now loose, like a towel wrapped around his head.Rlvlk
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.Guy
Continuity mistake: When JD is in the wheelchair talking to Dr Cox and he almost tells him he was a gymnast in high school, a female doctor in a white coat is walking in his direction behind him. One shot later she's gone, and a few shots after that she's back walking in the same direction. (00:02:55)
Character mistake: Early in the episode, Keith pages JD from home to the hospital. When JD arrives, he asks Keith what's the big emergency and Keith asks if he wants the patient to be prescribed unfractionated or low molecular weight heparin. JD gets angry and says that they're the exact same thing. This is in fact completely incorrect. Low molecular weight heparin is made from fragments of unfractionated heparin. They have different effects in their metabolism, half life and dose monitoring (unfractionated needs a blood test, low molecular weight doesn't). The choice between unfractionated and LMWH is an important clinical decision and should not be dismissed as "the exact same thing".
Continuity mistake: After J.D.and Julie take their picture with the old people masks and have taken them off, there are a lot of pieces from the mask still on their face. When J.D. has finished his small speech you can most of the bits from both of their faces has disappeared, with J.D's more noticeable than Julie's.Lummie
Continuity mistake: While J.D. and Carla are visiting Mrs Wilks near the start she has a tray of food and a bit of paper next to the tray in front of her. In shots of J.D. and Carla the table in front of Mrs Wilks where the food was is completely clear and the food and paper keep reappearing between shots.Lummie
