The Continuity Errors Thread

Recommended Posts

In the Opening Night Excitation, Sheldon is confused when Amy uses the phrase "Give it to me".

However, Sheldon has heard that phrase before, in The Cooper/Kripke Inversion.

Alot of these continuity errors, would only be picked up by hardocore fans, not casuals

 

In The Caushion Saturation. Penny picks up Sheldon's gun and accidently shoots Sheldon's spot (Great Lenny episode btw :D). But then at the end of the episode Leonard says "She's an a amazing shot". No continuity in one episode LOL.

In the Dead Hooker Juxtopation. Penny says just buying food for my boys. But in Anything Can Happen, she says I have never bought take out before

I have a few things.

1.  Sheldon does drink plenty of caffeine so the episode where he meets the Flash and tries caffeine for the "first time"  and claims he got addicted is consistent 

2. What ever happened to Howard, Sheldon, and Leonard making money from their invention.  They never discuss this being taken from them or why they continue to do the research for the government even though they wouldn't get paid.

3. There's a scene, sorry don't know numbers, where penny says to sheldon "Leonard doesn't snore" and sheldon says something like "no. I was talking about you", then in two separate episodes Leonard's snoring is a problem.  One where penny and sheldon are sharing the difficulties of living with someone and they both talk about his snoring, then during the episode where leonard has a deviated septum and they talk a lot about his snoring.

4)  why are they always drinking different brands of water?  Even in the same scene leonard will have one brand and raj will have another.

5) what ever happened to the calculations application they built?

6)  Why have we not met Penny's sister nor do we talk about her.

7)  Last one, I promise.  Why do none of the characters ever go home for the Holidays?

Love the show, these are just fun things I like to think about.  I will be so sad when it ends for good this year.

hI im not sure if anyone has mentioned this and im not sure this is the 100% the right place

 

but the khakra wand that was given for the wedding present to upset sheldon is the handle from the time machine from the early episodes seeing as all the boys had played with the time machine they would know where that wand came from 

 

i know its probably the arts and prop department just recycling things but i thought people would get a kick out of it, i signed up just to mention it here

When has Sheldon drunk caffeine, other than the cup of coffee he drank (which made him hyperactive), in The Work Song Nanocluster?

Sheldon went home to Texas (along with Amy) for Christmas, in The Holiday Summation.

Penny went home for the Holidays at least once and has the canceled ticket in her 'Leonard' box to prove it. Also she had come back from Nebraska in early Feb. (so not quite the Holidays) just in time to give Sheldon the flu and then succumb to it herself, so neither could go to Switzerland for Valentines and to see the Large Hadrian Collider.

season 4 episode 7 Raj is talking with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and then in the current season he has a twitter beef with him but they both act like they've never met and don't know who each other are

work provides lunch at the cafetiere so i guess he just eats there and they would have a weekly set of meals for each meal mon- fri   chilli day, sloppy joe day, pasta day etc so that would work to Sheldons set meals

From The Novelisation Correlation:-

Sheldon: You were glowing.

Amy: (giggles) Oily scalp.

Except Amy has a dry scalp.

I love the way the writers overlook items like that!    :hi:

In the episode The Psychic Vortex, Sheldon doesn't understand what Raj means, by the phrase "run my game".

How can Sheldon not know this saying, when he is so knowledgeable about Football?

It means how you are going to play your game, ie. your strategy.

I know a few people who follow America Football, and they use the phrase a lot.

Also, a quick Google found this from Edgerrin James:-

Quote

There is no secret (about) what type of runner I am. I am going to run my game.

Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and even Raj don't know that was a football reference! The only character who would know is Penny. She would know references, football and non football!

Sheldon should know, given how knowledgeable he is about Football.

He should, but he's clueless in that regard. Who knows maybe George Sr never explained that aspect of football to him.

Well he taught him pretty much everything, as demonstrated by the two occasions Sheldon expounded his knowledge.

Well, with his on again off again eidetic memory, I guess he forgot since sports is not important to him.

One of the most glaring continuity errors is in The Maternal Capacitance.

At the beginning of the episode, Penny can clearly hear the gang playing instruments and singing, through two closed front doors, and across the hallway.

However, at the end of the episode, Leonard can't hear Sheldon and Beverley screaming like Banshees, through a single front door, while standing right in front of it.

Leonard also says he can hear penny use the toilet from their apartment
