My Overkill - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Carla, Laverne and Dr Cox are in the restaurant, Dr Cox is in front of Carla and behind her are two hospital staff members, Carla walks away and it cuts to Dr Cox, but the two staff members have vanished.


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 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 Kingdom - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When J.D lends his nasal spray to Doug in the final scene Doug returns the spray to J.D after putting the cap back on. In the very next shot as J.D says "Don't bogart my nasal spray", J.D uses the spray without putting on the cap, and you can see the cap placed on Doug's tray.

My Fruit Cups - S2-E8

Character mistake: Throughout the series, JD and Turk are shown to be major sitcom geeks. At one point in the episode, JD says to Turk he Marcia Brady'd his ass, and explains what it means. Turk responds along the lines of "Yea, I know. 'Marcia Gets Creamed' Season 5 episode 3. Don't ever question me about The Bunch!" 'Marcia Gets Creamed' is season 5 episode 10. Episode 3 is 'The Elopement'. Not a mistake a couple of geeks would make.


His Story - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: Elliot, Carla and JD are in the cafeteria, JD has an orange drink that's flat on the table with his hands around the base, the shot cuts to showing his front and the bottle is now tilted towards him with a hand around the top.


My Kingdom - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When the guy at the end asks for nasal spray, the black dude has a fork in his hand, but when the shot changes he is playing with a Fanta can, and then the fork again. (00:20:15)

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.

My Cake - S4-E6

Question: What exactly was the point of Cox taping Dan's head to the wall? It just seemed odd and random to me.

Answer: Dan was drinking beer and Cox feared that Dan might get so intoxicated he would fall asleep and drown in the tub.
