Marie: All I'm saying is that somewhere out there is the man you are supposed to marry. And if you don't get him first, somebody else will, and you'll have to spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband.

Continuity: Coming out of the diner, on the trip from Chicago to New York, when Sally starts opening the door from the inside she does so with her right hand and the purse in her left hand. The next shot is from the outside and now she is pushing the door open using her left hand with the purse hanging from her left shoulder.
Continuity: In the scene where Harry and Sally are having lunch in the diner (the orgasm scene), Harry's napkin is in his lap. You can see it when the camera angle is from the side showing both of them from the knees up. Every time that angle is used, the napkin is in a different place or altogether gone.
Factual error: When Sally drops Harry off in front of Washington Square Park in Manhattan, the street signs are green with white lettering. However, street signs were yellow with black lettering in Manhattan during the 1970s - yellow street signs weren't replaced with the bright green ones used presently until the mid 1980s.
Continuity: When Harry and Sally are at a restaurant having lunch (this is when she has the fake orgasm), if you look at Sally's sandwich when they show her from behind, you will see that where she has bit into the sandwich has changed. First the bite is on the right, then the middle, then the left, etc.
Factual error: When Harry and Sally are driving away from the University of Chicago at the start of their road trip there is a long shot of them driving on Lake Shore Drive, but they are heading south TOWARDS the city with the lake on their left. If they were leaving the city from UofC, which is in Hyde Park, they would already be south of the city and never come near Lake Shore Drive.
