The Gothowitz Deviation - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Penny is making French toast and Sheldon walks into shot, the edges of the toast are not covered in egg whilst the rest of the toast is. About 30 seconds later, Penny asks Sheldon if he wants French toast and the edges are still not covered in egg. The shot cuts to Sheldon. In this shot we can see Penny's hands to the far edge of screen and fully raised showing us that she hasn't dipped the edges of the toast in egg yet. But in the next shot, we can see the whole of the toast is covered in egg, including the edges of the toast that were clear a moment earlier. (00:00:20 - 00:00:50)

Suggested correction: This isn't really so much a mistake as it was a character tweaking, which happens often in TV series.

The Vengeance Formulation - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Howard is proposing to Bernadette she is holding a tray with two glasses on it. The glasses are next to each other, side by side for two shots of her. Then in the third shot the glasses move so one is behind the other. Then in the fourth shot they are side by side again.

The Bad Fish Paradigm - S2-E1

Factual error: Raj and Sheldon are watching TV in Raj's apartment and we hear music playing. Sheldon asks if the woman on TV was Aishwarya Rai to which Raj says yes and then they argue about her and Madhuri Dixit. The song playing was from the Bollywood movie Kaho Na Pyar Hai, but neither of them are in the movie - the lead actress was Ameesha Patel. (00:14:50)

Stephen Hawking: Do you like brain teasers?

Stephen Hawking: What do Sheldon Cooper and a black hole have in common? They both suck. Neener, neener.

Show generally

Question: How come Raj has no problem speaking to his mother, but, when around other women, such as Penny, he immediately stops talking? Also, why does he have to whisper in someone's ear if he wants to ask Penny something?

Answer: Because Raj's selective mutism seems to be caused by women that Raj sees (on some sort of conscious or subconscious level) as a potential sexual partner. An attribute that wouldn't apply to either his sister or mother.
