Continuity mistake: When Melvin and Frank are talking about taking Simon to Baltimore the flowers on the table are yellow and red. When Carol is reading her note to Melvin, they're orange and purple. The colour isn't off because Carol's top looks the same as before. (01:16:00 - 01:17:30)

Continuity mistake: When we see Carol writing the thankyou note, the page is numbered (23), there are 8 lines of writing on the page and she says she is on the last page. When she is looking up the word 'conscience' in the dictionary, the paper is visible again but it is a different sheet - there is no number and there are only 4 lines of writing. It is the page she is about to write on because the last words written are 'have it on my ' - 'conscience' following this phrase makes sense. (01:09:00)

As Good As It Gets mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Simon has a rack of pool balls on his coffee table. When Melvin is telling Simon about the bacon, the 2 ball (solid blue) is near the telephone. In the next shot, the dog jumps up to get the bacon and now the 3 ball (solid red) is near the phone. (01:01:20)
