My First Step - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When J.D. and Eliot go bungee jumping, they go past a large pipe, or something on the way down but, when they bounce back up, it's gone.

His Story - S2-E15

Deliberate mistake: When the janitor pulls the plug on the phone, there would actually be nothing but dead air because the janitor just pulls the plug on the handset, not the whole phone. So they added a dial tone for comedic value. (00:22:20)


My New Game - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When JD and Turk are trying their latex suits Turk has a black scarf around his neck. Then JD says "You're mad because I make more money than you.", Turk turns around and the scarf is gone.


My First Step - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the class is being warned about the dangers of being a "wait and see" type of doctor, JD imagines himself as being the only person in the auditorium. In the first shot of him alone, there is a bookbag (or something similar) sitting on a seat about three seats to JD's left. In the next shot of him, it is gone, and in the third and final shot of him alone, it is back again.


My Unicorn - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Murray is flying the plane towards JD, JD is stood on a dirt surface with a road and his scooter behind him. When JD starts running from the plane, he is in the middle of a grassy area, with no road or scooter behind him.


My Old Lady - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When JD is at the birthday party, watch the chocolate on his face. At one point there are two separate bits of chocolate on his left cheek, then the shot changes and they are gone. The shot changes again and they are back.


My Sacrificial Clam - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: A patient in a red dressing gown is walking around the background when JD is teasing Eliott. He is seen twice but wouldn't have been in the second shot with the direction he was walking and in the time taken for the shot.


My Blind Date - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Elliot is looking at her patient, you see her reflection in the glass and her stethoscope goes down the SIDE of her ID badge clip, when it cuts to showing her through the glass it's now OVER the clip.


Carla: You can deny you like her all you want. But, I know for a fact, that every time you guys are done "playing racquetball" or "having a conversation" or whatever it is you crazy kids are calling it, you like nothing more than to just lie next to Jordan and watch her sleep.
Dr. Cox: It would be impossible for me to lie next to Jordan, she sleeps hanging from a ramp in the ceiling, wrapped in a cocoon of her own wings.

Season 1 generally

Question: In one episode (I think it's My Balancing Act) Dr Kelso is trying to scare the interns, so he pulls his face off and 'becomes' a guy with crazy ginger hair and a very annoying loud voice. I'm a Brit so that's maybe why I don't recognise this guy. Is he supposed to be someone famous?

Answer: This is an American comedian called Scott Thompson, more widely known by his stage name of "Carrot Top".
