The Chinese Restaurant - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Jerry is explaining to Elaine what to do for eggroll dare. She listens and uncrosses her arms. When he says the words "I'll give you 50 bucks" there's a cut, and Elaine's arms are again folded. It happens again right after when Jerry says she'll give the people at the table a story to tell.

Kramer: They're redoing the Cloud Club.

Jerry: Which part? The renovating the restaurant you don't own part, or the spending the two hundred million you don't have part?
