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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Basic Lupine Urology - S3-E17

Question: When Troy and Abed are showing the yam to a lady she tells them that their yam was about to bloom, and that it was stepped on. I don't understand how she couldn't tell that it had been boiled? If she can tell that it was about to bloom, it doesn't make sense that she couldn't see that it had been in hot water. Of course, she wouldn't be at Greendale (I assume she is at Greendale but I could be wrong) if she was that good at something.

Answer: It was part of the plot that when the boiled yam was dropped it looked like it was stepped on (which it never was). So there was no way to tell the difference between the flesh being soft because it was boiled or because it was stepped on (in the show that is, I don't know if one could tell the difference in real life). Plus, the rest of the yam wasn't boiled, so there was no evidence the yam was sitting in boiling water.
