(Being Nitpickey) Another mistake is in the script of "The Burning". When Kramer does his dramatic portrayal of Gonorea it says he lights a cigar where in the real episode he lights a cigarette.

There are TONS of mistakes in the scripts. But, that said, Stan has gone to a good deal of trouble to post all of that material and you will note that they are "transcribed" by a variety of different folks.

There are some large mistakes, like in The Strongbox where it has Jerry saying that maybe the broke guy's girlfriend is Lois Loan, when it actually George who says that line.

There are medium-sized mistakes like in The Caddy where I am supposed to have said:

"Jackie: That's totally inappropriate. It's lewd, vesivius, salacious, outrageous!"

The word is "lascivious" NOT vesivius (not even a word). Preposterous!
There are small mistakes, too, where many words are used correctly but are spelled phonetically. Some transcribers must be from Britain or maybe Canada because you will find flavor spelled "flavour" and the like.
I thank Stan for the effort and we should recognize that for anyone to go through each script with a fine-toothed comb would take forever. There are a host of errors, which is why I have stopped cutting and pasting dialogue and just wing it from memory. Sometimes it is just as accurate! Smile
