Grey's Anatomy

Owner of a Lonely Heart - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Olivia walks into an elevator with Izzy already inside and they go up 3 floors. When Izzy leaves the elevator, it's the same floor from which Olivia came (same equipment and decor).

(As We Know It) (Part II) - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The scene where the bomb explodes shows the bomb squad captain walking toward the end of a hallway. Just as the bomb explodes you can see he is about 5-6 feet away from the end of the hallway where another bomb squad tech is waiting. After the explosion the scene cuts to Meredith flying backwards then to a shot of windows being blown out then back to a rear shot of Meredith hitting the floor. Notice here that a second floor is not visible at the end of the hallway. The scene finishes with a final aftermath shot of the hallway as the debris settles. Here we see an entirely different hallway with a visible second floor and the end of the hallway extended by about 10 feet.


Let The Truth Sting - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Meredith's talking to Lexie in the clinic, in one shot from Lexie's right there's a chunk of hair hanging in front of her ear. We cut to a shot from the other side, then back, and without her touching it, it's now neatly tucked back.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight - S8-E18

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Meredith, Derek and Zola see the lion crossing the street in front of the car, the lion roars and it is clear that the lion is not missing any teeth. However, later in the episode, Richard removes a tooth that had gotten lodged in the male mauling victim's arm. The victim was the lion's owner and the attack happened in his house, so by the time the lion was out the tooth should already be missing.

Thriller - S10-E7

Continuity mistake: Cristina walks in during the party with two containers of cupcakes, places them on the side table and walks out. When Alex opens the lid and starts picking at the cupcake toppings, in the shots facing him the top container lid is wide open, but in shots facing Meredith the lid is closed and the cupcakes are untouched.

Something to Talk About - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Nurse Debbie gives Christina all the patient files, the 'explosive diarrhoea' file that she puts at the very top of the pile disappears in the next shot and then reappears in the next shot, but turned the other way round. (00:14:40)

Make Me Lose Control - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Derek sits in the rocking chair in the room with the premature baby and then Addison starts listing their relationship options, the blanket hanging over the back of the rocking chair constantly changes position, evident by the green stripes on it. (00:31:50)
