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.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: In "The Luminous Fish Effect" (S1E04) Sheldon tells Penny he weighs 140 pounds. In "The Porkchop Indeterminacy" (S1E16), he tells his sister he weighs 165. 25lbs difference would be a noticeable change, but he looks the same.
