The post-it always sticks twice - S6-E7

Corrected entry: When Miranda is saying the name of the bar "Drown the Hound", her lips don't match the words she's saying. I can't read lips so I don't know what she's saying, but it's definitely not "Drown the Hound".

Correction: Miranda says "Down the Hatch." This is a real bar that threatened to sue HBO for insinuating that you could buy marijuana there. Http://www.ew.com/article/2003/09/01/bar-sues-sex-and-city-over-drug-allegations.

Where there's smoke - S3-E1

Corrected entry: When Bill Kelly arrives at Carrie's apartment to pick her up for their 'date', he calls her on her apartment phone. But when they were talking on the steps of her apartment previously, he had told Carrie that her phone number was unlisted and she nodded. She didn't give him her number, so how was he able to call her?

Barbara Ann

Correction: Bill explains that he has managed to get her phone number through his connections at work.

Sex and the country - S4-E9

Corrected entry: Miranda and Steve are sitting on Miranda's sofa eating Chinese food and discussing Steve's cancer surgery. There's a close-up shot of Steve, who is wearing eyeglasses. The shot cuts to a close-up of Miranda and then back to Steve, who is now not wearing any glasses. He is not holding them, nor are they on the coffee table.

Correction: He is holding his glasses. You can see them as he gets the last spring roll.

The catch - S6-E8

Corrected entry: When Steve and Debbie are leaving Miranda's apartment, Steve calls out, "Bye Martha". The woman he is referring to is named Magda.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: He says "Bye, Magda", but with his thick New York accent, it could be misunderstood by some as sounding like "Martha".

Catch-38 - S6-E15

Corrected entry: Miranda is in bed with Steve on their honeymoon, and she obviously doesn't have any clothing on. But the very next shot shows her getting out of bed, and pulling up the straps of a black negligee that she is suddenly wearing. There was no time for her to have put it on.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: There is nothing to say she was nude under the covers. It's entirely possible that they pushed down the top and/or pulled up the bottom of her nightie to have sex at some point and she was just readjusting it as she got up. Happens all the time.

Change of a dress - S4-E15

Corrected entry: When Aiden punches the hole through the wall of Carrie's bedroom, we can see that her entire bed is carefully covered in cloth and plastic. But despite that much preparation, the empty book shelves are still attached to the same wall, and her bed is still pushed up against it. If they were thorough enough to completely cover the bed, then why not remove everything from the wall? It doesn't make sense that the shelves and bed would still be on the wall that Aiden is trying to demolish.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Carrie has been having a hard time coming to terms with the renovation the whole time. One would assume that not moving the bed or shelves would be one way Aiden could accomplish the demolition without totally upending Carrie's apartment and making her even more apprehensive about the construction project.

Change of a dress - S4-E15

Corrected entry: When the girls are trying on bad wedding dresses; they come out of the dressing rooms on the count of 3, meaning they haven't seen each other's dresses yet. But then Carrie has her panic attack, and Miranda tries to help undo the back of her dress. Miranda mentions that there are 'a million buttons back here' making it difficult to get the dress off quickly. Since Miranda didn't see the dress until it was already on Carrie, how did Carrie manage to button all those tiny buttons all the way up the back of her dress to her neck? It would be extremely difficult for her to reach around and do that herself.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Normally, when women try on wedding dresses, the dress shop has attendants/employees that assist with buttons, zippers, trains, veils, and the like. It would not be unheard of for an (unseen on camera) attendant to have buttoned Carrie's gown while she was in the dressing room.

Anchors away - S5-E1

Corrected entry: When the girls are walking down the street after eating, they all decide to go shopping downtown. Only Miranda says, "I forgot the Snuggly", implying that she can't go shopping with them. So Samantha rushes her off in a taxi. But in reality, this doesn't make sense. Miranda has already been out with Brady for hours, eating with the girls in a restaurant and then walking with him in NYC. So why would he suddenly need his 'Snuggly' to go shopping? If he was fine with all the activity before that, there is no reason he wouldn't have continued to be fine while shopping.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Babies tire easily and are comforted by routine. If Miranda had already "been out with Brady for hours", it's likely that he would have been ready for a nap. Having the Snuggly would have enabled Miranda to continue her day with the girls, while also allowing Brady to snuggle up and have that nap. Also, we cannot assume, based on just what was shown, that "he was fine with all the activity before that". We have no way of knowing that.

The good fight - S4-E13

Corrected entry: After Samantha and Richard go 'skinny dipping', they start dancing in robes by the pool. Samantha is still wearing what look like expensive dangling diamond earrings, and has obviously just swam in chlorinated water with them on. Samantha is known for her expensive taste in clothing and accessories; so even if her earrings are not actual diamonds, they are probably still very expensive, good quality jewelry. It seems illogical that she would risk damaging expensive earrings, wearing them while swimming. Even if she forgot to take them off before getting in the pool; they are very long dangling earrings, and she would have certainly noticed pretty quickly that she had them on.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: It's pretty safe to say that during her midnight swim with Richard, the very last thing on Samantha's mind was her earrings. If anything, being that she's Samantha, she probably thought "Oh well, I'll just buy a new pair."

A vogue idea - S4-E17

Corrected entry: When Carrie spots the Manolo Blahnik black Mary Jane shoes in the Vogue Accessory Closet, there is a close-up of the shoes sitting on the shelf. In the previous episode, it was established that Carrie wears size 7 1/2 in shoes (when she was shopping with Miranda). But when we see the Mary Janes on the shelf, and when Carrie holds them in her hands; they appear to be much larger than size 7 1/2. They look about size 8-10. Yet when Carrie tries them on; she mentions that they 'almost fit', and seems to be having trouble squeezing her feet into them. The implication is that the shoes are actually too tight for her, a smaller size than what she actually wears. Yet instead of looking smaller than size 7 1/2, the shoes are apparently much larger.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Different shoes fit differently depending on the person. First of all, it is impossible to tell a shoe's size based on camera angle or how it appears on a television screen. Secondly, it's possible they "almost fit" due to being too narrow, not having an adjustable strap, or many other reasons, rather than the assumption that they would be too big.

Change of a dress - S4-E15

Corrected entry: When Miranda offers to take Carrie to a bad Bridal shop, it sounds like she says, "I'll treat you to a 'Tasty Lite'". But when Carrie answers her, she says, "You're gonna have to do a lot better than 'Tasty Delite'". Later in this episode when the girls are talking at the restaurant, Carrie again refers to the place as 'Tasty Delite' which is apparently the real name. Cynthia Nixon must have gotten her lines slightly wrong, calling it 'Tasty Lite'.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Miranda definitely says "Tasti D-Lite," which is the correct name of the chain. She simply says it very quickly, as New Yorkers often do.

Let there be light - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Carrie is typing on her computer, she is wearing 'arm warmers' as if the temperature is cold. But she is also wearing very flimsy lingerie. If it was cold enough to need arm warmers, why would she be wearing such light clothing? The arm warmers wouldn't be a fashion statement, as she is alone in her apartment and no one can see her.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Carrie wears things for fashion even when she's at home. People with Raynaud's or other similar issues may need to wear warmers or gloves to protect the extremities in temperate conditions.

Take me out to the ballgame - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Samantha sees Carrie's picture in the paper, she says 'honey, that dress just paid for itself.' The picture is tiny, black and white and shows Carrie from the shoulders up; all you can see in it are the dress straps and just barely.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The comment meant that the dress had cost a lot of money but the instant press of her with Joe would have a big payment. That kind of press was going to make Big drool and the public jealous. Hence, that expensive dress paid for itself, she was photographed. Doesn't matter that the dress isn't actually seen in the photo.

Baby, talk is cheap - S4-E6

Corrected entry: After Carrie returns from dinner, she is using the computer when suddenly Aiden ("AidenNYC") is shown logging onto her AOL Buddy List (upper right of her computer screen). But for some reason, the show uses an 'IM Chime' sound. When someone logs onto their computer and appears on your Buddy List, it makes a different noise (usually a door-opening sound). The 'IM Chime' sound only happens when someone actually sends you an Instant Message. In this case, Aiden had not IMed Carrie. There was no IM on her screen, and he only appeared on her Buddy List.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: The sounds for logging on or IM'ing can be changed under the settings.

Show generally

Corrected entry: When Carrie is telling Samantha about her bad experience in bed with Berger in season 6, Samantha suggests she heat things up and suggests shoes with fake fur on them. Carrie refuses, saying she wouldn't wear furry shoes, yet in a season 1 episode, Carrie buys herself furry shoes.

Correction: Carrie's taste in shoes may have changed in the years between season 1 and season 6. Just look at how many times her hairstyles changed. Maybe she disliked furry shoes by the time season 6 came along.

Just say yes - S4-E12

Corrected entry: When Samantha and Richard are on his jet, they start to 'get busy'. The pilot interrupts them, explaining that they need to fasten their seat belts for take-off. Richard answers him by saying what sounds like "Thanks, Roy". But then immediately Samantha also replies "Sure, Duane". Apparently the actors are uncertain as to the pilot's real name.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Richard says 'Thanks, Dwight' and Samantha says 'Sure, Dwight'. His name is Dwight - not Roy or Duane. It's very clear.

Hot child in the city - S3-E15

Corrected entry: When Jenny and her friends greet Samantha and the girls at the restaurant, Jenny says 'I didn't know you knew Carrie Bradshaw.' But she also mentions that she loves Carrie's column, implying that she reads it every week. If Jenny really was reading Carrie's columns on a regular basis; she would already know that Samantha is one of Carrie's best friends, as Carrie writes about her constantly.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: It is never mentioned that Carrie refers to her friends in the column by their full names, so Jenny would not know that it's the same Samantha.

My motherboard, my self - S4-E8

Corrected entry: When Carrie and Aiden are waiting at the Techserve store, Dmitri (the Tech Guy) calls out Carrie's number as 'Number 64'. He says this twice. But after Carrie and Aiden are finished talking with Dmitri, he calls out 'Number 78' for the next customer in line. He says this number twice as well. Why would he go from 64 to 78?

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: There are a number of computer techs working at Techserv. During the time Dimitri is helping Carrie, waiting customers numbered 65 through 77 would have been called by the other technicians. There could be an overhead digital counter that each technician would look at before calling out the next available number.

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode when Charlotte is talking to the Rabbi, she says, 'I'm a 37 year old woman.' She celebrated her 36th birthday in the episode "Luck Be An Old Lady" in series 5. However, how is it possible that she's turned 37 when Miranda had Brady at the end of series 4 and he didn't turn 1 till later on in series 6 - so how has Charlotte aged a year?

Daisy86

Correction: The 5th series was cut short because Sarah Jessica Parker became pregnant, therefore creating a gap between the 5th and 6th series of at least 9 months. The character and actress for Charlotte would have no doubt become a year older in that time. This is never addressed in the show because Sarah Jessica Parker wasn't supposed to have been pregnant, but it still explains why Charlotte is suddenly 37.

Old dogs, new dicks - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Steve comes to Miranda's and she's prepared a seduction, she mentions that it's 2am. Several minutes pass and they fight, after which he leaves. A whole bunch of other stuff happens with the other characters, then the scene goes back to Miranda's apartment, where she's supposedly been trying to sleep for a while; and it's still 2am.

Correction: The night that he rings is a totally different night.
