The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Jerry says he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, then pops the cork on the wine bottle. Then it cuts to the lady and she asks, "Is there anything else about you I should know?" and the wine bottle is still on the table, corked. Then it cuts back to Jerry, and the bottle is still in his hand uncorked. (00:11:40)


The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene with Donna and the wine bottle, besides continuity errors with cork and glasses position already mentioned in this page, the level of wine itself changes; Jerry poured wine to Donna, but her glass is empty in some shots, and before Kramer's arrival both are full, only to become empty in the last shot. (00:12:30 - 00:14:00)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: George is talking about the phone call; when he says "I don't like to go too long before I ask them out", the waitress with the blue cardigan is passing behind him. At the cut, she's already to the other side of the counter. (00:02:05)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene which starts with Jerry saying he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, two wine glasses switch sides. The one with wine in it is on the left side of the screen, then 5 seconds later it is on the right side. Jerry also takes the cork out of the wine bottle and then in the next shot it is back on, only for the next shot for it to be off again. (00:11:45)
