Snow Job - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Coach walks out from behind the bar near the start, he's got feathers almost up to his knees. Then when he turns around to walk back, they're now only over his feet. (00:03:55)

Fear is My Co-Pilot - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Sam and Diane are left alone in the cockpit, the position of the curtain behind them keeps changing. When Sam is speaking, the curtain is half open. When the camera angle switches to Diane, the curtain is closed.

Madame LaCarla - S10-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carla is sitting at a table in the bar, dressed as the new Madame LaCarla and is voicing her doubts about being the new Madame, you can see that Carla is only wearing one earring, the left. In other scenes she is wearing both.

What's Up, Doc? - S7-E18

Continuity mistake: After dinner Sam pours Sheila a nightcap, and he opens a (seltzer?) bottle for himself. Sheila leaves, and both her semi-filled glass and Sam's bottle are on the counter. Just as Sam opens a second bottle for himself Rebecca enters, and Sam soon sets his second bottle down near his first. In following shots the amount of liquid in Sheila's glass increases, and Sam grabs his first bottle then walks away, but when Rebecca stands up, Sam's first bottle is back on the counter and it's his second bottle that's missing. (00:20:20)

What is... Cliff Clavin? - S8-E14

Continuity mistake: Just before they reveal the answers of Final Jeopardy, they take a wide shot, and Cliff's question (Who are 3 people who have never been in my kitchen) is already revealed. But when they take a tight shot and ask Cliff to reveal his question, it is covered up.

Affairs of the Heart - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: After Diane's 'Romance is in the air' Sam comes closer to her and stands right behind her. Then there is a cut and suddenly Sam is standing to her right, shoulder to shoulder - it's a different angle, but the distance is too great. (00:03:30)

Endless Slumper - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rick Walker is in the bar with Sam, he recognizes Coach as a former pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox. Yet in future episodes of Cheers, Coach is always identified as a former third-base coach.

Cry Hard (1) - S8-E25

Continuity mistake: Sam, Norm, and Woody are helping Rebecca move into Robin Colcord's house. When a curious Norm opens a bedroom door, the wall is bare. The shot cuts to Rebecca then back to Norm, but now there is a desk with flowers and a vase on it, plus a picture hanging on the wall.

What's Up, Doc? - S7-E18

Continuity mistake: While Sam considers going to see the psychiatrist professionally just to hook up with her, Carla suggests that he feign impotence, and Sam puts his bottle down on the counter, but it cuts to a closeup with Sam suddenly holding the bottle in his raised right hand. (00:09:30)

One for the Road (3) - S11-E28

Question: When I streamed this episode, there were a couple of small scenes missing (Sam explaining that his cigars were a gift from Fidel Castro via Reggie Jackson; Sam kissing Rebecca goodbye). I know they used to cut scenes to cram in more commercials after the initial broadcast, but with a streaming service, you're not limited to a time slot. Why not air the whole thing?

Brian Katcher

Answer: They sometimes acquire episodes from syndicated reruns. The ones with the cut scenes. Sundance channel have some episodes of M.A.S.H. uncut.
