The Jacket - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the shot when Jerry points to Kramer where the ruined jacket is and he walks across the room to go check it out, the box of Ritz crackers is facing The Opposite direction than before, and in the following shot he is holding it in a different way too, by the top of the box instead of the bottom.

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: 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: 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)

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.

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At Monk's, Jerry points at the woman feeding corned beef hash to her baby. There's an angle with the camera roughly behind Jerry Seinfeld's shoulder; the continuity here is sloppy, with George having his hand down flat on the table instead of with the fingers laced together with the other, and he has his right leg crossed and not the left. Just few seconds later he asks Jerry if he remembers his friend from Detroit, and he is pointing his left index finger at Jerry across the table instead, again, of having his hands close together. (00:07:30)

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jerry's neighbours are arguing in the corridor about sponge size, Harold is holding the tiny scourer in different ways between shot (in a different spot and with his fingers suddenly stretched out). (00:08:40)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: The first time we see Ray, he kisses his fiancée's hand. Elaine in that shot is holding her papers, with the thicker black book closest to her chest. A couple of shots later when he bows to "Jerry, lord of the manor" the books in Elaine's arms have switched position. (00:05:50)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Jerry is on the phone with Rava's boyfriend to ask him about The Statue. In the close-up he is holding the cordless in his left hand, but the same hand is on his hip when he is in the background with all the others crowding the landline to listen. (00:12:30)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: George had enough of Ray's pawn shop story and jumps up calling him a thief. Watch the couple at the table; the woman, wearing a purple sweater, has her hand on the man's arm in the reaction shot, when nothing of the sort was happening in the wider angle. (00:15:30)

The Revenge - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: George walked back into a meeting at his workplace pretending nothing happened. When his boss enters the room, George repeats in two separate the shots, differently, the gesture to hide his face behind a folder. The folder itself changed position before the boss arrived, since it was in his hand at first, then on the briefcase. (00:08:00)

The Jimmy - S6-E19

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

The Robbery - S1-E2

Trivia: Michael Richards invented his patented Kramer entrance in this episode on accident. He missed his cue and thought he would make up for lost time.

The Suicide - S3-E15

Question: When George and Elaine go to see the psychic, the psychic tells George that she sees a Pauline. George gasps and says that his brother once impregnated a woman named Pauline. Since when does George have a brother? Was this brother shown or mentioned in any other episode?

Dandude776 1

Chosen answer: George does mention his brother in the episode "The Parking Space". They actually really never mention anything that contradicts the fact he had a brother though, it just isn't mentioned.
