Their Story - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: When Turk is talking to someone about the teenager getting breast implants, in the first shot you can see he is talking to someone in a a blue shirt with a stethoscope - i.e. JD. However after this shot, JD has vanished and the conversation is suddenly with Todd.

My Perspective - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Turk marks the location for the surgery on Pvt. Dancer, he makes a horizontal mark on the left side of Dancer's abdomen. You can also see a small scar on Dancer's right side opposite the mark. A couple of shots later, Dancer is shown from the front and the mark has now switched to the right side above the scar.

My Fishbowl - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In episode 6-12 "My Fishbowl," the janitor waits outside a door holding a fishbowl. The door opens into the room as seen several times. You can even see that the hinges are set up to open in. When the janitor sets the fish bowl down you can see that the door has changed and opens out into the hall.

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 Musical - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: Carla and Turk's song and dance, "For The Last Time I'm Dominican", was filmed a couple of months later than the rest of the episode because actress Judy Reyes, who plays Carla, was recovering from a broken hip at the original time of shooting. Stephanie D'Abruzzo, who played the patient, was brought back in to film the scene; her hair is noticeably longer during the "Dominican" song than during the rest of the episode.

My Mirror Image (2) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When JD gets hit by the blue paint and confetti by the Blue Man Group at their concert, most confetti in the next scene disappears and JD is almost covered only by paint.

My Words of Wisdom - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Elliot, Carla and Jordan are in the bar, the waitress brings them three drinks; two short, clear ones and a cosmopolitan with a lime. A few shots later, Carla is seen from the front drinking the cosmo. The next shot from behind her shows the drink instantly on the table. The drink switches instantly between her hand and the table several times in the following shots.

My Road to Nowhere - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the janitor falls out of the moving van (having just woken up and not realising it was moving), we see him hit the ground and roll a number of times. By the end of the shot, his head is almost touching the roadside fence. However, when the shot changes to get a close-up on his face, he is some distance away from the fence.

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.

Trivia: The janitor's nametag actually says "Janitor" emphasising the mystery surrounding his name.

My Cake - S4-E6

Question: What exactly was the point of Cox taping Dan's head to the wall? It just seemed odd and random to me.
