Raped - June 20, 1980 - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the courtroom, when Kevin is being questioned by the prosecutor, she introduces several photos of Katie to the judge. The judge keeps two or three of them, and the prosecutor carries one to the witness stand. As she is carrying it to the stand, it can be seen that it is a photo of Katie wearing a dark top, with what appears to be a fluorescent light over Katie's head. The prosecutor then places the photo on the stand for Kevin to view, and it shows Katie wearing a white hospital gown with blue dots. After the prosecutor questions Kevin, the defense attorney walks over to the stand and picks up the photo. This time, it shows Katie in a red v-neck top, with no light above Katie's head.

A Song for the Soul - April 7, 1963 - S4-E15

Revealing mistake: When Al jumps into the shot out of nowhere on the steps after the record producer leaves, Sam and the two girls abruptly move, giving away the technique to achieve Al showing up. The transition is usually smoother, this one happens to be rough and noticeable.

Running For Honor - June 11, 1964 - S4-E12

Character mistake: When Sam first sees his reflection in the locker room mirror, his counterpart comes into the scene just a tad too late, making the reflection not match.

Dreams - February 28, 1979 - S4-E8

Character mistake: When Sam is trying to explain to Al how he feels the person he's leapt into, Jack, is still in his head, Sam asks Al if he remembers how their personalities got mixed up when they simul-leaped. Al says he does not. Three episodes previously, in Permanent Wave, Al asks Sam if there's still some of him, Al, left in Sam because of the way Sam is behaving toward the twins. So Al remembers in one episode, but in another, later episode his brain is somehow still swiss-cheesed from the leap on this particular detail.

The Leap Back - June 15, 1945 - S4-E1

Plot hole: Sam is trapped inside the imaging chamber without a hand-link for the first half of this episode. Yet, somehow, he is still able to follow Al around town. The chamber is only so big. Without the hand-link to recenter himself on Al once he's traveled beyond the walls of the chamber, Sam would have been unable to move much further than the town square he appeared in.

The Curse of Ptah-Hotep - March 2, 1957 - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: The size and shape of the hole Sam creates, when he breaks through the wall, is considerably different on the outside than it is on the inside of the burial chamber.

Continuity mistake: When he starts swinging the pick-ax, Sam's bandanna instantly moves between shots from around his neck to over his face.
