Special Education - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: During Season 2, Episode 9 (Special Education), just as Blaine is singing "Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss." for the last time, he is several feet in front of the other Warblers. But during the next shot, as he is singing ".a single thing you do.", he's right in front of them. So he jumped back several feet between two shots.

Wheels - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In "Wheels," when Artie is singing 'Dancing By Myself' and doing tricks in his wheelchair, the wheels on the back of the chair that prevent him from falling backwards disappear and reappear, depending on whether or not he is performing a trick.

Hell-O - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In "Hell-O", as Santana and Brittney are talking about the "hottest guys in the school", Santana's glass is almost empty. Yet two shots later, when she takes a drink, her glass is full. Also, when she says "Would you mind waiting in the car?" her glass is full and you can obviously see a slice of lemon in it. Yet in the next shot, when she says "And leave your credit card", her glass is only about 1/3 full and the lemon slice is gone.

Hell-O - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In "Hell-O", as Finn is dribbling the ball down the court, the timer behind him is counting down from 26. Yet two shots later, after he looks at Rachel and the other team steals the ball, the timer is counting down from 34.

New York - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Kurt informs Blaine that he flew in an airplane for The First Time. This however is incorrect, as Kurt flew to Albuquerque NM for the 2010 Cheerios Championships. In the season 1 episode Sectionals it is mentioned the Cheerios Nationals are in Albuquerque and in the season 1 episode Funk The Cheerios return from Albuquerque the same day. 1500 miles in less than a day means they flew.

The Sue Sylvester Shuffle - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Warblers are singing "Bills, Bills, Bills", one of them throws the sheets of music up in the air as he spins. For the remainder of the song, the sheets are on the floor during some shots, but have disappeared in others.

New York - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Brittany is talking to Santana outside their lockers, Brittany's fringe keeps changing between shots from across her forehead to down the side of her ear every time the camera switches from facing her to facing Santana.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In episode 2-18, "Born This Way", during the musical number "Somewhere Only We Know", you can see Brittany step down from the stairs in the background as The Warblers circle around Kurt and pat him on the shoulder. The next shot shows her stepping down again.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During "Don't Stop Believing" at the line "He took the midnight train going anywhere," Rachel extends her hand with her palm facing the floor. In the next shot, it instantly changes to her palm facing the seats of the auditorium. (Timecode listed for the director's cut of the episode.) (00:44:00)

Acafellas - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Mercedes is singing "Bust Your Windows", the blue rags on Kurt's car behind her change position several times. Also, Kurt is at first looking up at the hole in his windshield, then has his head down on the hood, and then is looking up at the hole again, over a series of 3 or 4 shots.

New York - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Kurt and Blaine are sat in the Lima Bean, the position of Blaine's hand where it props up his face changes. Whenever we see Blaine from the front, his fingers are curved slightly, but when we see Kurt (and the back of Blaine's head), his fingers are held straight so they do not interfere with the shot.

The Power of Madonna - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In "The Power of Madonna", during the Cheerios stilts routine, as the people on stilts lift one leg one after the other, they are in a V shape, and there are both girls and boys on stilts. Yet in the very next shot, as the people on stilts swing the other Cheerios around, there are only 3 Cheerios, all guys, on stilts, and they are in a straight line.

Laryngitis - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During "Laryngitis", Puck pulls Mercedes up to come sing "Lady is a Tramp" with him. Yet in the very next shot, just as she starts singing, she stands up again. So she stood up twice.

Duets - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: Season 2, episode 4 (Duets): When Brittany lifts Artie from his chair and carries him to her bed, right before she puts him down, he is obviously lifting his feet to prevent them from bumping into the bedframe.

Question: Why don't any of the bullies ever get in trouble for throwing slushies at the members of the Glee club?

Answer: The show is purposefully stylized and over the top. It is not designed to be an accurate, realistic representation of American high school. The idea that the glee club is so unpopular other students can literally throw garbage at them with impunity is an over-exaggeration of how glee club is considered "un-cool" compared to things like football. However, there is a second way of looking at it. The audience is simply never shown anyone getting into any trouble for throwing slushies. Just because we don't see it doesn't mean it never happened.
