Corrected entry: In the scene where Steve is talking to his mother via speaker about having dinner together, she tells him to be nice to David Silver, as his father Mel is a "producer casting a part I'd be perfect for. However, in all other episodes, David's father Mel is known to be a dentist in Beverly Hills.
Correction: That is the episode where Steves mom has Mel Silver the producer and Mel Silver David's dad mistaken for one another. Steve was nice to David in this episode until he found out from David that his dad is a dentist, not a producer.
Corrected entry: At the Peach Pit After Dark, David and Tom are preparing for Super Bowl weekend. But the Super Bowl is played at the end of winter, and the gang is all about two weeks away from graduation, which occurs at the end of spring.
Correction: The graduation doesn't take place till episode 31, which aired in May. While preparations may have been made for graduations, they certainly were never 2 weeks away from graduation and no mistakes were made.
Corrected entry: At Kelly's birthday celebration, two different people hand Donna a glass of champagne in subsequent shots.
Correction: If you watch Donna when she is handed the first glass of champagne, she downs it quickly. Then someone else hands her another glass of champagne which she starts sipping on.
Corrected entry: When Kelly and Valerie are discussing what happened outside Brandon's house two years ago, there are two flash-backs. In the first flash-back Valerie has her arms down along her body when she says "hello" to Kelly, but in the second flash-back her arms are crossed when she says "hello".
Correction: The flashbacks are told from both characters' points of view, and they each remember the event differently. That's why stance, tones of voice, and the conversation differ in each flashback.
Corrected entry: In this episode, Felice and Dr. Martin are supposedly celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. In the sixth season episode "Earthquake Weather," Felice told Donna that she had to drop out of the Rose Court competition after getting pregnant. She got married at that time, and suffered a miscarriage. In the earlier episode "Offensive Interference," Donna saw her mother in a photo of the 1969 Rose Court contestants. Therefore, Felice and John should be celebrating their 29th anniversary, not 25th.
Correction: Just because Felice was pregnant and had a miscarriage doesn't mean she was married. She could have been unmarried and with child. This may also explain why she was so strict with Donna regarding remaining a virgin until she was married.
Corrected entry: In this episode, the gang (except David and Scott) starts its junior year (11th grade). However, they started their junior year in the first episode of the series.
Correction: In the beginning of the series it is stated that David and Scott are freshmen. It is also stated throughout the series that David is a year behind Donna, and in the Graduation episode that David worked to graduate a year early with his friends, meaning that David and Scott were only one year behind the rest of the gang. That would mean that the gang started their Sophomore year in the first episode of the series, not their Junior year.
Corrected entry: In this episode, Steve asks Brandon if he'd ever heard Clare sing before (as she's pretty bad) and he says no. In Divas (when she showed up at his house when his parents were away and handcuffed herself to his bed) she sang while dancing for him - and actually had a pretty good voice.
Correction: I always assumed that Brandon just didn't want to relive that whole 'seduction scene'. He omitted the truth, this isn't a TV mistake.
Corrected entry: When the Gang is going to Palm Springs over President's day weekend early in the series, Kelly and Donna tell Brenda she's the last virgin. This implies that Donna is not a virgin, however, after she starts dating David, all of a sudden she IS a virgin and wants to wait until she's married.
Correction: Donna may not have wanted to seem 'uncool' by admitting that she's a virgin. It wasn't until she started dating David that it became an issue, and she had to make a stand against it.
Corrected entry: When Valerie is talking to Steve in Brandon's 'stang at the end of the show, Valerie says "Steve, we have stars in Upstate New York too." Buffalo, NY which is where she is from is in Western NY not Upstate NY.
Correction: I live 45 minutes from Buffalo, NY. It is referred to as Upstate or Western, NY. Upstate would be correct as it is referred to as opposed to downstate which in NYC.
Corrected entry: Valerie admits to David that she killed her father. If this is true, then why was she having the recurring nightmares of finding her father after his "suicide" in Lover's Leap?
Correction: Valerie does state that she killed her father but not by her own hands. She had told her father that she was going to tell her mother about the sexual abuse and that is when he went into the bathroom later that day and killed himself. She blamed herself therefore telling David she killed her father...she felt responsible.
Corrected entry: In this episode, Janet tells Steve that her parents were hippies who taught her to believe in free love. In future episodes, she gets pregnant by Steve. Now her parents are conservative and refuse to accept her and Steve and will not come to their wedding.
Correction: ,Janet does say that, but in a few episodes afterwards, Steve makes the same remark and Janet says that she was lying.
