The Ballad of the Betty Lou - S3-E9

Other mistake: While Jerry and Rob are furious, Jerry asks the sailor "What's the matter with the lights?" and the sailor says "power failure on the line, they can't locate it." If there's a power failure then the room would be completely dark just like it is outside. Yet Rob and Jerry have shadows on their hats, jacket, shirts etc. as well as a shadow from the bunk bed. These shadows are caused by the non-working lights or the lights behind the camera.

Rob Petrie: At least I'll prove one thing tonight: Television writers marry the prettiest girls.
