Jimmy didn't die even though it never shows him after he falls on the steering wheel in the car with Lori. He simply passed out. In the TV cut it shows him alive, but for some reason in the theatrical version, they left it out. See more...

Revealing: In the beginning of Halloween 2, the scene where Dr. Loomis shoots Michael Myers repeatedly until he falls off the balcony is reenacted to reflect the events of the original Halloween. If you look carefully, you can see that the stuntman portraying Michael is actually walking backwards on a table until he haplessly falls off the balcony.
Visible crew/equipment: On the Goodtimes DVD release of Halloween 2, just after Dr. Loomis blows up the hospital room the camera switches to the hallway where Laurie is running away. The explosion comes through the hallway and you can see the right side of the hallway shaking - this shows that the wall is a studio set wall. You can also see wires behind it and the wooden supports that are holding it up.
Revealing: In the scene where Marion is calling for help on the police car's 2-way radio, she speaks, "Marion Chambers with Doctor Loomis at the clinic; He's here." Right after that, the policeman on the other end of the radio starts to talk. However, Marion never lets go of the "talk" button on the radio's microphone, until the middle of the policeman's response to her request. You can't listen and receive anything on the radio while the button on the mic is pressed.
Continuity: When Loomis thinks he sees Michael but it is actually a drunk Ben Tramer in a mask, he runs after Tramer and pulls his gun. Brackett sees this and runs out of his patrol car, slams the door, and stops Loomis before Loomis gets off a shot. A few seconds later though, the car door is now open in the background.
Character mistake: In the elementary school, Dr. Loomis spots Nurse Chambers and exclaims, "Oh, I hardly recognized you!" Although Nurse Chambers is wearing more make-up and is not dressed in a nurse's uniform, certainly Loomis would easily "recognize" a person with whom he shared an intimate, life-imperiling experience the night before, when Michael Myers stole their station wagon and fled the sanitarium. "Hardly recognizing" Nurse Chambers would have been a more appropriate response if the actual three year span between Halloween and Halloween II had occurred rather than the one night that was supposed to have elapsed between sequels.
Continuity: At the very end of the first Halloween, Loomis' first shot hits Michael while he is struggling with Laurie. A few seconds later, he is staring down Loomis and breathing very heavily. At the beginning of Halloween II, the scene is reenacted to reflect the ending of the first movie, but here you cannot hear Michael breathing at all after being struck by Loomis' first shot.
Continuity: When Michael steals Mrs. Elrod's knife from her kitchen, about 6-7 drops of blood go onto the cutting board, and none are on the lunch meat she is using. When she comes back and notices the blood, however, now there are just about maybe 2-3 little smears of blood and one drop on the lunch meat.
Revealing: When Doctor Loomis touches the blood in the beginning, you can see a bit of material (it appears to be plastic) sticking to his fingers as he pulls them up from the grass. It appears as though it was somehow involved in the effect of him touching the blood. (Perhaps to keep it from soaking into the ground?).
