Mother Said - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Orson is on the phone with his lawyer, he sets down the notepad with a page half filled with writing at the front. However, later in the scene Edie walks into the room and the front page of the notepad is full of writing, plus there's an extra line in the first paragraph. No one was around to move the page as Orson was in the shower.

Love Is in the Air (a.k.a. What I Did for Love) - S1-E14

Factual error: Lynette's neighbor tells her that the pot Lynette's sons gave her is really hers, the neighbor's, and she bought it in Costa Rica. She turns the pot over to show Lynette that the price is marked on the bottom, with a number followed by the letter p. One supposes that the p might stand for peso, except that the currency of Costa Rica is the colon, which consists of 100 centavos. No p in sight.

Continuity mistake: 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 left margin also gets smaller, and the handwriting varies slightly.

If you look to the right of the shot you will see Carlos' face is just looking in front of him and not speaking, but you can still hear him giving his speech whilst he is in shot.
