The Loobenfeld Decay - S1-E10

Character mistake: Sheldon is a well-documented and self-proclaimed germophobe. It is completely out of character for him to retrieve the bag of chicken from the trash.

Continuity mistake: Sheldon puts the bag in the bin at the start of the episode so that the handles are facing the ground. When he gets the bag out, the handles are at the top of the bin.

The Loobenfeld Decay - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In nearly every episode, Sheldon demonstrates his OCD when he knocks three times on a door, says a person's name, and repeats that sequence twice, for a total of three iterations, but in this episode he radically departs from that behavior not once but twice. First, wanting to talk to Leonard, he knocks four times, says "Leonard" and repeats the sequence three times for a total of four iterations. Later, wanting to talk to Penny, he knocks four times and says her name, repeating that sequence at least four more times. Given that this was the first season, I assume the writers had not yet settled upon the 3x3 routine as a comic behavior.
