The Butter Shave - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When the NBC executives introduce themselves to Bania at the comedy club, their last names have swapped since season 4. Jay introduces them as Jay Chermak and Stu Crespi, when in Season 4, they were Jay Crespi and Stu Chermak.

The Voice - S9-E2

Factual error: With the size of that red ball (approximately 2.5 foot diameter) and the density of oil (approximately 60 lb/ft^3), the giant ball of oil would weigh 491 pounds. This would be impossible for Kramer and Darren to lift out of the window and would definitely kill anyone it beaned.

The Blood - S9-E4

Revealing mistake: When Kramer is driving his Tupperware full of blood in Jerry's car, you can tell by how rapidly The Blood is oscillating that it is just red-colored water. As the saying goes, blood is thicker than water, so actual blood wouldn't oscillate that rapidly, especially when it had just been pulled from a freezer. (00:18:20)

The Junk Mail - S9-E5

Factual error: In the scene where Jerry, George, and Elaine are in the coffee shop and Kramer walks in with the dummy mailman with the bucket over his head, Kramer remarks how nobody entered the post office while he was outside protesting. Jerry remarks, "That is because it is Sunday." If that is true, how can the group be gathered at the coffee shop? There is a red sign by the entrance of the coffee shop showing the business hours, and the coffee shop is supposedly closed on Sunday.

The Junk Mail - S9-E5

Continuity mistake: When Elaine and her new boyfriend are eating in the restaurant, her bangs are to the side. The shot goes to a close-up of her boyfriend, in the next shot her bangs are across her forehead. Then in the next close-up of her face, her bangs are back to the side.

The Slicer - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: When Elaine is woken up by her neighbor's alarm she looks at her own bedside alarm clock and it shows 3.30 AM. In the next shot when she buries her face in her pillow and screams, that clock shows 3.29 AM. (00:00:50)

The Slicer - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, after George has successfully airbrushed himself out of Kruger's picture and reinserted an authentic picture of Kruger, Kruger picks up the picture and explains to George why he doesn't think the mole Kramer discovered in Kruger's cancer screening is anything to worry about. After George says "Whatever" and just before Kruger begins explaining the story behind the picture to George, he tilts the picture towards the camera and if you look closely you can see that George is still in the picture. (00:11:00 - 00:22:20)

The Apology - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jerry and his naked girlfriend are playing scrabble just after Jerry accuses her of stealing and it flips to the front at the bottom of the screen you can see a bra or towel covering her breasts but is gone when she stands up. (00:03:40)

The Dealership - S9-E11

Continuity mistake: When George is at the window making a complaint, a cut reveals several inconsistencies. The man at the window has his arms in a higher position in the second shot (plus his facial expression is changed), the woman no longer has her hand up on the wall, and George's left hand is suddenly resting on the table. (00:15:55)

The Dealership - S9-E11

Factual error: George asks for a nickel from Jerry for his candy bar. He then proceeds to put only 3 coins into the machine for a $0.50 candy bar. No 2 coins would require a nickel to make 50 cents.

The Reverse Peephole - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: Kramer is holding his hands in front of him with a back scratcher in his left hand, and then suddenly after a cut his hands are not up and we don't see him holding a back scratcher. He proceeds to close the door with his left hand, which is now holding nothing. (00:05:25)

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?

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.
