Sex and the City

Plus one is the loneliest number - S5-E5

Corrected entry: As Carrie and Berger are sitting on a park bench talking, there is a bag of fast food between them that disappears when they get up to leave. Carrie is holding her shake as they walk away, but neither of them is carrying the bag.

Correction: If you watch closely, while they are sitting and talking, Berger grabs the bag and throws it away in the trash can behind him in one arm motion. You don't see the bag on screen either but you see his arm motion grab the bag and move across his body to the trash can behind him. That is why, when they get up the bag is no longer on the bench.

I heart ny - S4-E18

Corrected entry: Mr Big said he would leave for California at 5 pm. Carrie runs into Samantha at the hospital just after Samantha spied on her lover during lunch. After that, Carrie immediately leaves the hospital to see Mr. Big but he's gone already. That would be a VERY long lunch Samantha had.

Correction: He most likely meant his plane leaves at 5 pm. And knowing security in airports these days, he might've left home at least 3 hours earlier to make sure he got there on time.

Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Carrie and Berger are still trying to set up their first date Carrie sees Berger. Berger stops at a payphone and uses it. Carrie runs away and calls Berger at another payphone. What phone did Carrie call? If Berger had a cell phone, why would he be using a payphone?

Correction: Berger is shown using ONLY a cell phone. Carrie uses a payphone to call him (on his cell phone)from outside the movie theater.

An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

Corrected entry: Smith and Samantha discuss how it's been a long time since they've had sex and how it's her chemo that's killing her sex drive. Only a pair of episodes earlier, while she was on chemo, they not only had sex but taped it.

Correction: The episodes don't run as one week, the time scale is indeterminate. Samantha is much further on in her chemo in this episode than she was in the episode where they taped themselves having sex.

Kara

The big time - S3-E8

Corrected entry: In The big time, Samantha tells the older man that her apartment is 2D. However, in Market to Market, she tells the investor man that her apartment is 4F. She is still living in the same apartment.

Correction: The way I remember it, Samantha told that guy (Len) that her apartment number was 2D because she didn't like him and he was interested in her. It was an intentional decoy.

I heart ny - S4-E18

Corrected entry: In Episode 66 "I heart ny", Miranda gives Carrie a cell phone in order to have her on call when she goes to the hospital to deliver her baby. When the phone rings, Carrie tells Big that she never had one and does not know how to use it. However, in Episode 20 "The man, the myth, the viagra", she receives a call from Miranda and whips out her cell phone from her purse to receive it.

Correction: Carrie says she doesn't (currently) have a cell phone, not that she *never* had one. And she may not know how to answer it because it is different than her previous one. Different phones can be answered in different manners.

Ral0618

Ghost town - S4-E5

Corrected entry: After Miranda buys her coffee and muffin, she walks out the front door of the store to confront Steve on the street. She talks to him for a few minutes, and then suddenly Jessica comes out from the same door to join them. Jessica was obviously in the store at the same time as Miranda was, and Miranda has seen Jessica before. So why didn't Miranda notice or recognize Jessica when they were in the store together? (00:01:30)

Correction: Because she is unobservant? I have passed my own mother at the store before.

Attack of the five foot ten woman - S3-E3

Corrected entry: When Magda opens Miranda's 'Goodie Drawer', we can see a few items including a certain pink device. As the drawer is closed, it's obvious there is only one drawer on that night stand. So where is the 'Rabbit' that Miranda was so enamored of previously? Surely after spending over $90 on the 'Rabbit', Miranda would still be using it, or at least have it prominently located in her one and only 'Goodie Drawer'. (00:10:00)

Correction: Simply because she has a "goodie" drawer doesnt mean that these are the ONLY toys that she uses. Or maybe she used it and it was in her bed still!

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.
