Interpretive Dance - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: You can see the play director telling a pianist with grey hair to "play something modern." About twenty seconds later when Britta throws her tea hat off towards the pianist, however, it's an entirely different piano player now, that has brown/black hair. (00:17:10)

Beginner Pottery - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: After the pottery class scene, in the Spanish classroom, when Britta and Jeff are talking, his right arm is across the desk. When Jeff replies "so did someone's psych teacher" and camera cuts, his arm is suddenly folded up by his chest. In the next shot, his left hand is suddenly over his right hand.


Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jeff goes into Ian's office and sits down, he puts his book down so the spine is facing the viewer's right and puts his drink on top of it. Later, without touching the book, it is rotated 90°.


Modern Warfare - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: After Jeff and Britta have had sex, when Britta is pointing her gun at Jeff, in shots behind Jeff she is holding the gun sideways, but in shots from behind Britta she is holding it straight.


Modern Warfare - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: When Chang's paint bomb explodes, pay attention to the background. You will see paint exploding from three different points on the ground. (One to the center, one to the left and one to the right) The only problem is that there was only one paint bomb in the center, so it makes no sense that there are 3 explosions from different points.

Suggested correction: It's not exploding from 3 points on the ground, it's just 3 different spots on the window. However, the bomb had 3 bottles of paint which is where the three spots come from.


Incorrect. The paint very, comes from three different points in the room. The center of the screen (where Chang is) is where the bulk of it comes from, but there are two extra "bursts" on the left and right side of the screen, far away from where the "paint bomb" is actually located. (And if you don't believe me, look it up on- the scene's on YouTube. The paint burst on the left side of the screen is aimed to the right, and the paint on the right is aimed to the left- which adds a further layer of impossibility to your assertion that the paint all came from the same bomb in the center of the room.

Contemporary American Poultry - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: At the end when Abed is talking to the Dean, there's an open to-go box with chicken fingers. After the Dean asks who would steal a box of hairnets, it cuts back to Abed and the box and ketchup are gone. Post-it notes are also now seen and the stapler moved. In the next shot of Abed, the chicken is back.


Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Abed comes into the study room for the first time with Jeff and Britta, he grabs a chair and goes to sit down while Britta sort of saddles up near him. When the shot cuts, she is leaning back in her chair. (00:07:00)


Spanish 101 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jeff and Pierce are having a glass of whiskey, Pierce makes a toast and Jeff replies "To the irony of that sentence." After he says this, Jeff puts his glass back on the table and Pierce lowers his glass, but doesn't put it back on the table. In the next shot, Pierce's glass is suddenly on the table. (00:09:35)

Casual Person

Spanish 101 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Pierce tells Jeff that Britta is ugly, Jeff takes a drink from his glass of whiskey and puts it back on the table. In the next shot, there is suddenly much more whiskey in his glass. (00:09:50)

Casual Person

The Science of Illusion - S1-E20

Visible crew/equipment: After Britta accidentally bumps the gurney into the window, she grabs the body bag in a failed attempt to keep the corpse from falling out into the quad. Right as she grabs the body bag, look on the ground behind her. Someone slides a mat in behind her for her to fall onto. (00:13:50)

Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps - S3-E5

Trivia: This episode features a pay-off for a joke that was established in the first two seasons. In season one, the character Professor Slater mentions the name "Beetlejuice" while trying to recall Britta's name. In season two, Britta refers to Jeff's underwear as "stripey Beetlejuice numbers" during a conversation. And in this episode, Annie says that Britta has the "Beetlejuice" soundtrack on her computer. As Annie says the name, the character Beetlejuice is visible briefly walking by a window in the background, his name having been said three times. (In the film "Beetlejuice", he is summoned once his name is spoken three times).

Laws of Robotics & Party Rights - S6-E5

Question: Something I don't get... If Willy the prisoner is not really a killer, as revealed in the climax, then why did he try to literally kill Jeff earlier? It goes against the whole joke of the episode - that Willy is actually a fairly harmless fraud who never actually killed anyone despite his claims. He was just sort-of a loser who built a mystique around the fact he was (wrongfully) convicted of murder. The fact that he did try to kill Jeff therefore just doesn't quite add up in my head.

Answer: His attempt to "kill" Jeff was to roll at him as an iPad on a stick. He knew it wouldn't work, but it played to the story that he was a killer as he knew Jeff would tell people about it, or attempt to retaliate for it.
