The person playing "Jackson" in this episode is a stand in for the entire episode, as the actor who normally plays him was unavailable for filming due to a severe motorcycle accident. See more...

Updates: Series 1
Plot hole: In season one, Helen said that John turned eighteen last week. And Zach said in season three that he is two months older than John. But in another episode in season three, Lynette said that Zach turned eighteen a month ago. So Zach is two months older than John, and John turned eighteen in season one, but Zach turned eighteen in season three. Season one quote: "Last week he turned eighteen"(they're talking about John in episode "Your Fault.") Season three, quote one: "I'm two months older than John Rowland"(Zach says it in episode "Not While I'm Around.") Season three, quote two: "Until he turned 18, a month ago"(they talk about Zach in episode "Come Play Wiz Me.")
Continuity: On the note Mary Alice receives that leads to her suicide, the position of the three sentences changes throughout the series. In episode 1.1 (Pilot), all three lines are written on the top half of the note (above the crease), but in later episodes the first two lines are on the top and the third is on the lower half. The handwriting also varies slightly.
Factual error: In an earlier episode where Edie and Susan are driving Martha Huber's ashes to the lake to be spread, Edie gets a flat tire and Susan changes it. In Season 5 Episode 19, All the girls are driving with Edie's ashes and they get a flat tire. Susan asks "Does anyone know how to change a flat tire?" Did she forget how to change a tire?
Other: Season 04, Episode 14: In the scene where Lynette and Tom are fighting about Lynette having taken Kayla to see a therapist, and Kayla walks away, you can hear Tom yelling about Lynette having a distorted reality and that she can't pull crap like that. In the scene where Kayla comes back into the house after conning the twins into jumping off the roof, Tom and Lynette repeat the same dialogue again.
