The Rhinitis Revelation - S5-E6

New this month Other mistake: When Mary is rubbing VapoRub on Sheldon's chest, she makes a comment that last time she saw that there was no hair, to which Sheldon replies "Yeah it filled in last year." In Season 1, Episode 11, Penny rubs VapoRub on Sheldon's chest and a very clear remark about chest hair was made. Season 1 for the show was 4 years ago.

The Beta Test Initiation - S5-E14

Factual error: Penny picks up a hand gun, pulls back the slide to ensure the chamber is empty and then releases it, leaving it closed. She then loads a magazine into the butt of the weapon and hands it to Leonard. He starts to smooch her and shoots himself in the foot. The gun could not have fired, because Penny would have to pull the slide all the way back and then release it again to load the first bullet. There couldn't have already been a bullet in the chamber, as the whole reason Penny pulled the slide part of the way back in the first place was to check just that.

The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition - S5-E10

Factual error: Sheldon and Amy have agreed to call each other "boyfriend" and "girlfriend." Sheldon suggests she should peruse the new relationship agreement while he sets up his notary stamp. As an agreement, both parties would sign. As a Notary, Sheldon would know that he could not notarize his own signature.

The Shiny Trinket Maneuver - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: Howard, Leonard and Raj play Jenga in a strange sort of way. Most notable is the playing order, 1. Howard, 2. Raj, 3. Raj, 4. Leonard, 5. Howard. When it's Leonard's turn he doesn't move any bricks, only pokes the tower and it's then Howard's turn. When its Raj's first turn he puts a brick on the top of the tower. When it's his turn again, the brick is gone and he puts a new one in its place.

The Rothman Disintegration - S5-E17

Character mistake: After Sheldon has told Barry about the rules of Rock/Paper/Scissors/Lizard/Spock for the first time, Barry then replies "I'm sorry, can you repeat that." When he says "repeat", he correctly pronounces the "r." However, it has already been established throughout the series that Barry pronounces all his Rs like Ws due to his speech impediment.

Suggested correction: Barry doesn't always mispronounce the letter R. It can happen with certain Rs and Ls.

The Good Guy Fluctuation - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: Leonard refuses Penny's offer of a glass of wine because the sulphates in wine give him migraines. This makes no sense - we have seen him drinking wine in too many episodes to count without him once complaining of an adverse reaction.

The Vacation Solution - S5-E16

Character mistake: In Amy's lab, when she is complaining to Sheldon how she gave him the simplest tasks, and that they're still not done, Sheldon replies with how Einstein failed math because he wasn't challenged, and that it is the same case with him. Einstein never failed math. Sheldon of all characters should know that.

The Shiny Trinket Maneuver - S5-E12

Character mistake: The bird that Sheldon is afraid of is referred to in the scene as a "Blue Jay." In fact, the bird is a Black-throated Magpie. A Blue Jay is a little smaller, has a shorter tail, does not have the darker plumage, and can be quite obnoxiously vocal.

The Werewolf Transformation - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When Penny is giving Sheldon his haircut, she accidentally shaves the back of his head. The clippers are going from the bottom of Sheldon's hair, up to the top of his head. When Sheldon goes to leave the room, it can be seen only four or five inches from the back of his head have been shaved off.

The Recombination Hypothesis - S5-E13

Factual error: Leonard lies to Sheldon about his being over at Penny's at 3am by saying he went across the street to use the gas station bathroom. Sheldon refers to it as "The Colorado Boulevard Chevron." The address of their apartment building is 2311 N. Los Robles. Colorado Boulevard is five miles away. (Yes, it's a fantasy sequence, but even in Leonard's head, Sheldon's not likely to make a mistake like that).

The Hawking Excitation - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Sheldon is trying to convince Howard to let him meet Stephen Hawking, Howard places a water bottle on the table he is sitting in front of. In the next shot, it appears in his hand again.

The Countdown Reflection - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: After Howard and Bernadette are pronounced husband and wife, when they kiss the camera angle switches to an overhead shot, but as it zooms out (to a digital image) things change - such as the configuration of the rooftop, or things move - such as the cable dishes, or things even vanish - such as air-conditioning units.

The Hawking Excitation - S5-E21
