Make Me Lose Control - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Meredith tries to get into the OR to see Cristina, Bailey walks over to the door to stop her, and they talk. But in the final shot of Christina, you can see Bailey's hands on her head, even though Bailey is at the door with Meredith. (00:30:00)

Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: When Chief Webber is sitting alone in the dark his watch says 6:30, seconds later Dr. Bailey comes in and tells him that Denny Duquette died at 7:42 that evening. (01:23:40)

Owner of a Lonely Heart - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Christina is in the locker room eating a packet of crisps, everyone comes in and she asks them if they have any decent food. In the next shot you can see she is now holding an opened bar of chocolate. Then in the following shot we actually see Meredith hand her a wrapped bar, which Christina then opens (and the previously opened bar is gone, of course.) (00:03:40)

Let It Be - S2-E8

Owner of a Lonely Heart - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Olivia walks into an elevator with Izzy already inside and they go up 3 floors. When Izzy leaves the elevator, it's the same floor from which Olivia came (same equipment and decor).

(As We Know It) (Part II) - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The scene where the bomb explodes shows the bomb squad captain walking toward the end of a hallway. Just as the bomb explodes you can see he is about 5-6 feet away from the end of the hallway where another bomb squad tech is waiting. After the explosion the scene cuts to Meredith flying backwards then to a shot of windows being blown out then back to a rear shot of Meredith hitting the floor. Notice here that a second floor is not visible at the end of the hallway. The scene finishes with a final aftermath shot of the hallway as the debris settles. Here we see an entirely different hallway with a visible second floor and the end of the hallway extended by about 10 feet.

Something to Talk About - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Nurse Debbie gives Christina all the patient files, the 'explosive diarrhoea' file that she puts at the very top of the pile disappears in the next shot and then reappears in the next shot, but turned the other way round. (00:14:40)

Make Me Lose Control - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: We see a nurse writing down "Yang, C" on the assignments board; note the handwriting. Later, when Burke notices that Christina's name is on the board, the handwriting of "Yang, C" is completely different and other minor writing differences are noticeable too. (00:27:55 - 00:33:45)

Let It Be - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Meredith puts the Hello Kitty plaster on her forehead in her car, she puts it on upside-down. When she reaches the elevator it is now on the right way up (it is unlikely she would have removed it just to place it back on the right way up.) In addition when she is in the elevator, from shot to shot the position of her fringe (and how much of it covers the plaster) keeps changing. (00:01:50 - 00:02:55)

Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode when it shows Burke laying on the floor after being shot, there is a very large pool of blood with his glasses right next to the blood. But in the next shot there is no pool of blood anymore but it returns in the next. Additionally, the pair of glasses change position. (00:00:05)

Dr. Meredith Grey: At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross.
