Continuity mistake: At the end of the 11/30/06 episode, Sam goes to look for Jason at Liz's art studio. Jason is not there and Sam and Liz get in a confrontation regarding Jason. The front piece of Sam's hair is in a braid. At the beginning of the 12/1/06 episode, it picks up right where Sam and Liz left off in their conversation, but the braid is now gone from Sam's hair.

Factual error: During the 8/25/06 episode, Sam, Alexis, Kristina, and Patrick are in the hospital to discuss Alexis' upcoming surgery. Patrick asks Alexis and Sam if they are sure they want Kristina to be here for this. Sam responds that Kristina doesn't know a lot about hospitals. Sam goes on to say that Kristina has had some band aids and bruises and that Kristina knows you get stitches here. Actually, Kristina should be very familiar with hospitals. A couple of years ago, Kristina had a stem cell transplant using the stem cells from Sam's baby.

Factual error: Robin, Laney, and Kelly decide to move into the loft that used to belong to Courtney. When Courtney lived there, it was set up like a loft. It was one large room that was sectioned off into a bedroom, living room, and kitchen. On the 9/29/06 episode, they show Robin, Laney, Kelly, and Patrick in the loft and suddenly it's much larger and seems to have separate bedrooms for all three girls. Why didn't the show have the three girls move someplace other than Courtney's loft or why didn't the show make up for the mistake by having the loft expanded or something similar?

Show generally

Other mistake: Season 12, Episode "Blame it on the Rain": At the beginning of the episode, Abby is almost run over by a man driving an SUV. They exchange words and then Abby throws a supposedly full cup of coffee at him. The cup of coffee bounces off the seat of the man's car and it is obvious that the cup is empty.

Other mistake: Season 6, 9/20/05, "Fight Face"While in Luke's Diner, Luke hands Lorelei a cup of coffee in a 'to go' cup. When Luke puts the coffee in front of Lorelei, the cup makes a hollow sound when it hits the counter, obviously indicating that there's no actual coffee in the cup.

Plot hole: During the week of Aug. 29, Taylor catches Thomas and Gabby about to make love. She then tells Gabby that Thomas is not mature enough for a sexual relationship. First of all, Thomas and Gabby are married. Secondly, Thomas is college age and can legally have sex. And to top it off, has no one told Taylor that while she was supposedly "dead", that Thomas dated and had a sexual relationship with Amber?

Plot hole: During July 2005, Port Charles is threatened by a hurricane. The characters that are gathered at Lorenzo's house are told that the bridge has washed out and that they will all have to stay at Lorenzo's house until the hurricane passes. Even Alexis, who's pregnancy is threatened, has to stay there because emergency crews cannot get to the house. During the July 14, 2005 episode, Nikolas leaves Lorenzo's house to drive home and Courtney leaves where she is to drive to the house. All the characters even reiterate in the same episode about how they are all stranded due to the storm and the bridge being washed out. So why would Nikolas think that he could get home and Courtney think that she could get to the party? Obviously, this was written so that Courtney could run off the road and Nikolas could save her.

Plot hole: During the 3/25/05 episode, Jason realizes that Courtney is at the MetroCourt. The assassination attempt on the rival mob boss that Jason arranged is about to happen. Jason, fearing for Courtney's safety, heads to the MetroCourt. He is too late to prevent the assassination, and luckily, Courtney was not hurt. Wouldn't it have made more sense for Jason to simply have called the people about to carry out the assassination and call it off once he learned Courtney was in the restaurant? Obviously, the show wrote it this way so that a witness could place Jason at the scene of the shooting, thereby setting up more story.

Plot hole: During the 4/7/05 episode, Jax and Courtney are trying to obtain Rachel's medical records. Monica proceeds to give them Rachel's medical records. Monica Quartermaine is a well-respected heart surgeon at General Hospital. I know that she was suspicious of Rachel and wanted to help Jax and Courtney, but giving them Rachel's medical records was illegal and she could have lost her license.

Continuity mistake: During the 5/31/05 episode, Liz and Lucky are at Kelly's Diner celebrating and they hug. While they are still hugging, the scene changes to Sonny's mansion and Mike is there babysitting Michael. When the show goes back to Kelly's, Liz and Lucky are breaking out of their hug and Mike is suddenly working behind the counter of the diner.

Plot hole: Toward the end of the movie, it is revealed that Silvia spent the night in the secure room where the Matabo President was taken after the assassination attempt so that she could be alone with him and threaten to kill him. With the U.N. and Secret Service on alert for an assassination attempt, wouldn't they have swept the secure room right before the Matabo President arrived that day? In addition, Silvia would have had to use her access card to get in that area of the building, so there would be a record of her being in the building but not at her station. Wouldn't that raise some suspicion long before Tobin figures it out?

Plot hole: During the 3/29/05 episode, the MetroCourt restaurant is cordoned off as a crime scene following the mob hit. Regardless of the fact that the restaurant is sealed off with crime scene tape and police are present gathering evidence, three characters (Alexis, Diego, and Maria) manage to walk past the crime scene tape and past the cops into the restaurant. Alexis is there taking pictures of the crime scene, even though she is not an employee of the police department nor the DA's office. Maria is there going about her business as manager of the restaurant and Diego is hanging out having a conversation with her. At no time does a police officer ask any of the characters to leave the crime scene area.

Continuity mistake: During the 12/29/04 episode, Emily goes to look for Conner. Emily goes to a carpentry shop and asks the owner if he has seen Conner. She tells the owner that Conner "just moved here from Canada." Acually, she's looking for him in Canada. In the next scene, the show gets it right, and the owner asks Conner "Is that why you left the States?"

Plot hole: During the 12/29/04 episode, Courtney counsels Sam and Jason about adopting a child. She then includes Bridget, the biological mother, in the discussions, and proceeds to go over legal issues, etc. She even states that the "papers should be on her desk in a day or so." Courtney is not a social worker, not an adoption counselor, and didn't go to college. Only in soap world would she be involved in arranging the adoption of a child.

Continuity mistake: During January 2005, Sheridan gets attached to a stuffed bear that her mother gave her as a child. At one point, Sheridan is sleeping and has the bear with her in bed. She then proceeds to start sleepwalking and leaves the bear in her bed and then leaves her house. Later that evening, her mother enters the bedroom looking for Sheridan and the stuffed bear has somehow managed to move to a chair across the room.

Allyson

Other mistake: Catherine Zeta Jones requests that she be allotted extra man power and requests that a commanding officer sign a "Form 1077". The body of the form is in Italian, but the title of the form is in English and under the signature line, the words "signed and agreed" are in English. Obviously, this was done so that the point would be made that the officer did not sign and agree to her request.

Revealing mistake: When Mark takes his pet frog to the other frog's grave, you can tell that the pet frog is a rubber toy, rather than a live frog.

Plot hole: During the 10/11/04 and 10/12/04 episodes, Whitney steals an experimental drug in order to drug Fox, heads to the Crane pool to find him and enters the pool area carrying two drinks. Fox has his back to her and is working out with a punching bag. Whitney then stands behind him, puts the drug in the drink and mixes it up. Wouldn't it have made more sense for Whitney to do that before she entered the Crane pool area? In addition, she has a conversation with herself out loud as she prepares the drinks. She then goes and changes to a swim suit, carries the drinks to the pool, and is getting into the water before Fox ever realizes she is there.
