I know you guys don't like discontinuity errors and stuff, but I came across something like 5 minutes ago that might be worth mentioning (because i got nothing else on the horizon). It's not so much a discontinuity error as it is a blooper that wasn't caught.

It happens when Jerry sees Kramer's version of the bootleg for Cry Cry Again. Jerry says he's going to have to do the bootleg but he's going to have to storyboard the entire thing. So he gets up and asks Kramer :

"Where are my magic markers?"

But as he's saying that, Kramer picks up the video recorder in one hand, and the magic markers in the other. After realizing that he has the magic markers in his hand, you can clearly see that Michael throw the markers away in an attempt to "save the shoot"....which i find fascinating. What an actor!

Wow, good eyes. I never noticed that before, I'll have to look for it next time that episode is on.

Wasn't that The Little Kicks? Never noticed it either. Just curious why he felt he had to throw them away to "save the shoot." Couldn't he have just held them up to show Jerry he had them? Or was he not supposed to know Jerry was planning on using them yet?

Maybe if Jimmy had the scene to watch, he'd understand better.

Strange that he seemes to say "Right here" just as he throws them...

There's your answer Jimmy. I just watched it again, and this bob sacamano guy is right. After Jerry asks where his magic markers are, Michael was struggling with whether he should say "right here" or whether he should throw them away. So what happened? He mumbles "right here" AND throws them away!

Sorry to rain on your parade guys, but look a little closer. Its not magic markers at all. Its the RCA cables to his camera he has hooked up to the T.V. Smile

I just looked again...Clarkman is absolutely right. Funny how the power of suggestion can make you think you see things. When I was looking for markers, that's what they were. Now, it's so obvious that it's the RCA cables. His half-hearted "right here" repsonse is still strange, but they are definitely RCA cables in his hand.

Jimmy doesn't have the episode, so Jimmy couldn't say whether they were markers or whether they really sucked.

oh...yeah...i guess they are RCA cables. But it wasn't my fault...the which the camera was filming...the objects in question..caused the ...light to inadvertantly...allow for the refraction and illusion of the...appearance of ...i lost my train of thought.

but the point is ...i forget that too.

Either way, at least be satisfied with the fact that i successfully wasted your time for a little while.

Actually, it took a good eye to notice anything in the first place, Cous. Most of us that checked it out also thought we saw the same thing. It just took a better eye from the Clarkman to get it right. Kramer's response and actions are awkward in that scene either way.

Well, you blur your eyes like you're starin' straight through the picture. And you keep your eyes unfocussed, and then.........oh oh oh YEAH!
