Continuity mistake: When Carrie is showering after being stood up at her party she is not wearing mascara as she stands with her face under the water, then as she opens the curtain to talk to Charlotte again there is no mascara. She puts her hands briefly over her eyes and when she takes them away, mascara is visible all over her eyes and cheeks.
Continuity mistake: After Carrie rents the car and takes it back, she and Miranda are sitting on the couch talking. As Carrie says something, she turns her head to the right, looking straight at Miranda. When Miranda replies, "Well, that's one option", you can still see Carrie's head in the shot, turned towards Miranda on the right. But then in the next shot of Carrie, she is facing straight ahead and talking in the middle of a sentence. (00:19:30)
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is talking to the cute guy while hiding out from the rain, she tells him, "I was engaged last year". But the previous episode, when Mr. Big moved to Napa, it was just becoming Fall in NYC. So it doesn't seem likely that only one episode later, it would be months later into the next calendar year. (00:17:40)
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is reading the magazine and Aiden punches a hole through her wall, the hole looks to be about 4 feet from the corner of the wall. But after Carrie gets up and runs into the other apartment to confront Aiden, the hole in the other side of the wall is suddenly about 8 feet from the same corner, much further away. (00:12:55)
Continuity mistake: As the group are discussing Samantha's nude photos in the restaurant, a salad Miranda has ordered arrives at the table. Just after Carrie says "that we know of" you can see the waitress place both the salad and a ramekin of dressing onto the table from behind Miranda. The shot then cuts to the front and the waitress is shown putting the ramekin down for the second time.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Brady has the Chicken Pox. But when Robert visits Miranda at home and picks up Brady, there is absolutely no sign at all that he has Chicken Pox. It takes awhile to get over Chicken Pox, and for them to fade. So even if Brady is recovering from having Chicken Pox recently, he would still show signs of it. It couldn't go away that fast, and it's way too soon for Brady to be completely clear. (00:12:55)
Continuity mistake: During this scene when Samantha is confronting her new assistant, the office set-up is completely different than before, when Nina G. was working for her. The assistant office space is much larger, glass desk, different angle, next to small conference room instead of Samantha's office, etc.; obviously not the same office set as previously used. Yet Samantha has not changed offices at all during this time period, as it wasn't too long ago when she fired Nina G. Something as major as changing offices would definitely have been mentioned in the plot (as changing apartments always is); and there hasn't been enough time since she fired Nina G. (00:13:45)
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is in Big's kitchen, and hears Natasha come home, she tries to leave in a hurry. She puts on her blue levi jacket, so it's about halfway on with her left arm in the sleeve. But in the next shot of her, Carrie is suddenly wearing only her pink bra and carrying the blue jacket. As she unlocks the door and starts running down the stairs, she throws on the blue levi jacket for the second time. (00:25:15)
Continuity mistake: When Charlotte is signing her divorce papers, there is a close-up of Harry's face leaning over her. It's covered with large drops of sweat, some of which drip onto the paper. But in the next shot of Harry when he is standing up, he isn't nearly as sweaty. Most of the perspiration on his face seems to have disappeared. (00:07:00)
Continuity mistake: When sitting at the bar, Samantha points to Charlotte and her date, who are heading up the stairs arm in arm carrying nothing. Yet in the next scene when they arrive at the honeymoon suite, they suddenly have their arms full with a large bag and a basket.ViolaThrash
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is holding the pie pan, she is startled by the squirrel on the window and drops the hot pan, burning her legs. She is facing forward directly towards the pie pan, and as it falls it could only have burned the front and possibly a little of the sides of her legs. But later when she is sitting on the kitchen table, Aiden takes some ice from the iced tea pitcher and puts it in both of his hands. He then asks her where she was burned, and proceeds to gently rub the ice on the back of both of her legs, not the front or sides where she was burned. He is only rubbing the back of her calves, below the knees. (00:25:00 - 00:25:45)
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Steve are sitting on his front steps discussing Aiden, Carrie is looking forward as Steve says "He lost his ability to open up and trust women." At that moment; Carrie turns her face towards Steve to her left, and keeps it there as she is appalled. But the very next shot; Carrie is suddenly facing forward again, and then starts turning her head left towards Steve for a second time. But in the next shot; she is already facing Steve, from the first time she reacted to what he said. It's clear that she had never actually moved her head after the first time. (00:25:30)
Continuity mistake: When Miranda is running in the streets looking for Mary, there is a close-up shot of her face. You can see that it's raining heavily, as the rain is apparent in the scene. But during the rest of that sequence, as she is out in the streets, there are no other signs of rain, or of people being affected by rain. There is just snow on the ground. (00:28:30)
Continuity mistake: Both of Harry's hands are on the table, but in the next shot his left hand (with his wristwatch) is up, then in the next shot both are back down. He then raises his right hand while his left hand remains on the table. (00:20:10)Noor08
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is lying on her bed, she is wearing yellow pants over a green top. The top portion of her pants is unbuttoned/unzipped as she moves. But after she picks up the phone to call Big, she is sitting up on her bed, and her pants are suddenly buttoned/zipped completely up. There was no opportunity in this sequence for her to have closed her pants. (00:12:15)
