The Wedding - S5-E11

Plot hole: As Jeannie is walking down the aisle with Dr. Bellows, she sees the first photographer about to take a photo. A second before the photo is snapped, she blinks in the mannequin, which can be photographed. Later, though, when Jeannie and Tony are watching the film of the wedding, the mannequin is not visible, either. In the film, the photographer can be seen snapping that first photo (at this point, Dr. Bellows is walking down the aisle with the mannequin), but the film still shows Dr. Bellows walking down the aisle alone.

Djinn, Djinn, the Pied Piper - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When they are in the park, Roger is sent to the phone booth to call Jeannie, but ends up having a conversation with the operator. When Dr. Bellows pulls up, the phone booth is empty. Yet, a few minutes later, Roger is shown still in the phone booth. Because he mentions the original reason for his call, it is clear that this is supposed to be the same conversation.

Jeannie: Master is football more important to you than I am?
Major Nelson: Of course not, that's like comparing oranges and lemons.
Jeannie: And I'm the lemon.
