Accounting for Lawyers - S2-E2

Character mistake: At the party, Jeff is talking to Ted about his parents' divorce, which included a custody hearing. Jeff mentions the divorce lawyer drove a Mercedes SLK. However, the SLK didn't come out until 1996, which would make Jeff at least 21 (turning 22) at the time of the divorce (he was born Nov 1974). There would have been no need for a custody hearing (Jeff was an only child between his mom and dad) and his parents divorced when he was very young, so the divorce had to happen prior to 1996.

Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy - S2-E18

Character mistake: Annie when giving her gifts is holding two little mini flags to cover the possible ethnicity of Shirley's baby. One is a Chinese flag and the other is Zimbabwe. Annie makes reference to the fact that the ethnic food she made is one from Ghana. She makes Ghana ethnic food but does not get the right flag for Ghana. She decorates the table with numerous flags which are also Zimbabwe.

Mixology Certification - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Jeff says to Troy "you're a man now" the camera goes onto Troy and we can see Abed asleep on Britta's shoulder (Britta is also asleep), even though in the shot before that, they were both awake. Then after the shot of Troy we see Britta and Abed awake again.

A Fistful of Paintballs - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: When Chang is getting blasted with the minigun, the safety pads under his shirt are very noticeable. (His shirt is extremely "puffed out" and you can see the outline of pads.) He's been tied up most of the episode and wasn't wearing pads earlier, so there's no way he was able to get pads on in the meantime.

Cooperative Calligraphy - S2-E8

Character mistake: Right before Jeff searches Abed's bag, Britta explains to the group that Abed is the innocent one. After Jeff reminds her that Abed put gum in her hair, she looks at no-one in particular and says "empty the bag, Abed." Jeff is the only one holding the bag, with Abed standing five feet away from both of them. It's clear this line was directed to Jeff, but the wrong name was used.

Asian Population Studies - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Right after the intro, the group is sitting in the Anthropology class waiting for Prof. Duncan. The chalkboard is filed with writing on it. When Duncan enters, the chalkboard is, except for the 3 top-corner titles, completely clean. (00:03:02)

Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking - S2-E16

Deliberate mistake: This episode is meant to be entirely a documentary made by Abed. At the end of the episode, there's a shot where the gang is looking into Pierce's window, except the camera is right in front of the window they're looking through. If Abed was filming this he would literally be right in front of the gang, completely obscuring their view through it.

Analysis of Cork-Based Networking - S5-E6

Trivia: Actress Paget Brewster appears in this episode as an IT lady named "Debra Chambers." Brewster was eventually cast as a different character during season six named "Frankie Dart." In one season six episode, the character Dart mentions being unable to get ahold of the school's IT worker- a very subtle joke in reference to the character she played a year prior.

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.
