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?

xx:xx:xx

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.

Boy, interrupted - S6-E10

Corrected entry: When the girls are sitting by the pool discussing men, Samantha at one point says, "No one wants to admit they're in a looney bin". To which Carrie replies, "On a first date", referencing her high school boyfriend Jeremy. But Jeremy actually told Carrie about the mental institution on their second date, when she invited him over to her apartment. Their first date was dinner at the restaurant, where they met.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: This isn't a mistake. When Carrie says "On a first date" it's tagged along to what Samantha said, as in "No one wants to admit they're in a looney bin." "On a first date" meaning that her boyfriend DIDN'T say anything about a mental institution on the first date, but rather on the second.

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

Corrected entry: The scenes when Carrie is running from the cab into the Paris street and French restaurant to reach her book party, were actually filmed on Commerce Street in New York City.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: This is simply not interesting trivia. Films and TV Series frequently don't film on location at the actual places depicted. There has to be a very compelling reason to list this as trivia.

Don't ask, don't tell - S3-E12

Corrected entry: During this scene when Carrie and Aiden are talking after the wedding, each actor's side of the scene was filmed separately. Aiden's part of the scene was filmed first; then Sarah Jessica Parker had to wait an hour, as it took a long time to completely turn the lights around to film her side of the scene. Thus, Carrie's part was filmed after Aiden's.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: This isn't interesting trivia. It is a standard filming convention that not every scene will be filmed in sequence.

The one - S6-E12

Corrected entry: When Aleksandr and Carrie are having their late dinner, he asks her if she would like some fruit. Carrie replies: "I'm not really a fruit person". Yet this is contradictory to her character, as we have seen her eating fruit throughout the series, eg. cherries while watching SNL during the afternoon, and an apple while working on her computer.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: That's being a little too literal. Even if she didn't particularly like fruit, it doesn't mean she hates it and never eats it (it's good for you, afterall). Some people are that way about eating vegetables. Carrie may also just not have wanted a whole piece of fruit in addition to dinner. In fact, the entire Russian meal was a bit much for her taste.

Pick-a-little, talk-a-little - S6-E4

Corrected entry: After Miranda and Paul have a successful dinner date, he abruptly ends the night and tells her he has to get home. Miranda finally gets Paul to admit the truth, and he informs her that he has diarrhea and goes running off in a hurry along the sidewalk towards home. But if Paul was in that much gastrointestinal distress that he has to end a date and rush home, why wouldn't he just go back inside the restaurant and use their bathroom? They are standing right outside the restaurant, and it would have been much faster and more convenient than having to wait until he got home.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Paul was obviously embarrassed by having to answer "nature's call," no matter how urgent. It was an awkward situation, and this being their first date, he likely did not want Miranda to know about his sudden need for a bathroom. Considering his predicament, he may have wanted to avoid using the restaurant's facilities under those circumstances.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Corrected entry: When Charlotte wakes up in the morning next to Harry, she turns over to talk to him. At this point, you can see that she is still wearing a simple gold wedding band on her right hand. This makes no sense, as she is completely divorced and already dating someone else. She wouldn't still be wearing her wedding ring from her marriage with Trey.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: This most likely isn't her wedding ring, because she gave her old ring to Carrie in season 4 after her breakup with Aiden. Carrie needed to buy her apartment from Aiden, who purchased it when she realized her building was going co-op, and Charlotte gave her the ring from her wedding with Trey to help Carrie out. Women wear all different types of rings, and on Sex and the City, they always wear some sort of jewelry and have accessories.

A woman's right to shoes (a.k.a. no shoes, no service) - S6-E9

Corrected entry: When Carrie is telling the rest of the girls at the restaurant, about her shoes being stolen, Charlotte asks her 'who would steal shoes at a party'. Carrie answers, "Someone Size 7 with excellent taste". But previously in season 4, episode 16, when Carrie and Miranda are shoe shopping together, Carrie asks to try on Size 7 1/2. Her shoe size apparently changes throughout the series from 7 to 7 1/2. Her actual feet, however are much larger as you can see from close-ups of the real shoes.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Not everyone wears the same exact size shoe for every type of shoe. Some shoe designers run a little big, and some run a little small. Also, certain types of shoes are built differently, so your size can be different from the size you wear with your other shoes.

The one - S6-E12

Corrected entry: When Charlotte is on the couch watching TV, there is a shot where you can see the backs of both of her hands. She is again wearing the simple gold wedding band on her right hand as she did previously, but she also has on her new wedding band that Harry gave her on her left hand. There is no sight of the large diamond engagement ring he gave her either. It seems strange that Charlotte would be wearing two wedding bands, and not her diamond ring from her current marriage.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: The ring may just be any ring she has. It most likely isn't her old wedding band, considering how Charlotte's personality is. A lot of people wear plain band rings, and just because she's wearing one, doesn't mean it is her old wedding band.

The cold war - S6-E17

Corrected entry: When Carrie arrives home and checks her phone machine, Mr. Big has left some messages. In one of them, he mentions that he 'called her cell, but he must have copied her cell phone number wrong, because he got another person instead'. But this doesn't make logical sense. Mr. Big has already called Carrie on her cell phone (IE: "Thrift Store", "Jury Duty"), and obviously knows her correct number. And if he had written it down, he must have written it down correctly to have called her on her cell.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: There was some time that elapsed since they talked on the phone (those times they talked on her cell, she was still with Berger, and time elapsed because her hair is longer when she checked her machine)Perhaps he had her number on his cell phone and lost his phone, along with his SIM card that has all his numbers. Or possibly Carrie could have changed her number and he wrote it down incorrectly when they talked last.

A vogue idea - S4-E17

Corrected entry: After Carrie drinks 1 1/2 martinis in Julian's office, she gets extremely drunk. He has to help her walk out of the office, and she is staggering and falling into things. This doesn't seem logical, as Carrie goes out frequently and drinks all the time. Even in the daytime sometimes. She is used to drinking a great deal more than 1 1/2 martinis, and doesn't usually get nearly that drunk. For someone who drinks a considerable amount of alcohol as a normal part of her life, it seems implausible that she would suddenly get stumbling drunk after only one and a half martinis, no matter how strong they are. And it's doubtful Julian would have made them too strong, being during the morning in a major magazine office environment.

Barbara Ann

Correction: Carrie hadn't had any breakfast, and she's a size 2. Nothing implausible about it.

Sex and the country - S4-E9

Corrected entry: When Samantha decides to go proposition the Farmer next door, Carrie asks her, "What are you up to, Sam Jone?" Only she says, 'Jone' singular, not 'Jones' plural as it's supposed to be.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: She actually says 'Sammy Jo'.

Where there's smoke - S3-E1

Corrected entry: Carrie meets a politician at the bar and gives him her address "to determine her district." He later meets her on her stoop, and mentions that her phone number is unlisted, to which she responds that it's likely to remain that way. She never gives him her phone number, yet the night he comes by to hopefully pick her up for their date, he calls and leaves a message.

Correction: She might have given it to him or he could have contacts at phone companies and gotten it. Its not like her phone number is a national secret.

Baby, talk is cheap - S4-E6

Corrected entry: In the previous episode when Steve told Miranda about the opening of Scout, he was still involved with his girlfriend Jessica. Not only was Jessica with Steve when he offered the invitation to attend the opening, but she made a big point of saying 'We'd love to have you come' meaning she and Steve were still a couple. Yet later in that episode when Miranda shows up at the Scout opening, Jessica is nowhere to be found. Not only that, but Steve leads Miranda over to the bar to 'get drunk' meaning he wanted to spend some time with her. So what happened to his girlfriend Jessica? She was just with him a few days before that. Also in this episode, when Miranda and Steve went out on the double date with Aiden and Carrie; Steve was single at this point and tried to kiss Miranda on the way home. There was never any explanation or plot concerning what happened to Steve's previous girlfriend Jessica; and it seems illogical that they would have broken up in the short time between when he invited Miranda to the bar, and the actual opening night of Scout.

Barbara Ann

Correction: Why is it illogical that they broke up? Couples break up all the time.

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?

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

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

shortdanzr

The big time - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Mr. Big is leaning against the boat rail talking to Carrie, you can see that he is not wearing a wedding ring on his left hand. This seems odd, since he just got married again. And wouldn't Natasha notice that he wasn't wearing his wedding ring as a Newlywed?

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Maybe he took it off because it made him feel guilty or he just was not used to wearing it yet. Plenty of married people (men and women) don't wear wedding rings for a variety of reasons.

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'.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

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!

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Corrected entry: At the end of Season 4 after Aiden moves out, Carrie has the hole in her bedroom wall fixed, and repaints that wall an olive green color to match the others. (Season 4, Episode 18, Run Time: 1:18.) But in this episode, when Carrie is in her bedroom going through her newspaper columns, you can see that this same wall is suddenly painted a light pink color. It hasn't been very long since she just painted the wall olive green again, so why would she suddenly repaint just that one wall light pink? Why would she repaint the same wall again twice, that quickly?

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Not only is this not a plot hole, but it's entirely presumptuous of the submitter to note this as a mistake. Carrie painted the wall olive green in season 4, episode 18. After which at some point, she reconsidered her choice and painted the wall pink, by the time we see it in season 5, episode 2. Even if she changed her mind and repainted her wall a dozen times between that time span, it is her choice to make, and we needn't see it onscreen.

Anchors away - S5-E1

Corrected entry: 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.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Saying "it doesn't seem likely" does not mean it is impossible. The time lapse between episodes can very well be months, so there is no inconsistency here.

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Corrected entry: As in the previous episode, the colors pink and red are again emphasized in this episode, although not as much as before. We first see the combination with the flashback of Richard explaining himself to Samantha. His bedspread is red, and there is pink lighting in the windows behind him. During the second scene in Richard's apartment, the same colors are used, with the addition of Samantha wearing a bright red top. Later when Carrie and Charlotte are 'trolling guys' in the park, Carrie is wearing a red plaid hat, and Charlotte is wearing a very pink jacket. There is also a pink/red umbrella, and dark pink fire hydrant in the background. When Carrie meets with the two female Publishers in the bar, it has a red and pink decor. Later when Carrie and Samantha are walking in the street, and talking about Carrie's book, Samantha is wearing a very obvious pink and red outfit. When Carrie is back in her bedroom, going through her newspaper columns, she is wearing a pink dress with red figures on the chest. When Charlotte is seen in her bathroom listening to Affirmations, she is wearing a pink sweater, and writing on the mirror with red lipstick. Later when Carrie and Miranda are shopping in the Baptism store, Carrie is carrying a pink sweater, and Miranda is holding a large red purse. When Charlotte and Carrie walk into the Seminar and approach the welcome desk, there is a shot of a woman wearing a pink sweater standing next to a woman in a red shirt. Later when they are sitting down, Charlotte takes off her coat to reveal that it has a red lining, and she is wearing a pink and black dress underneath. There are also several women in the audience wearing red. When Samantha and Richard are seated at the restaurant, the decor there also has some red and pink. Later when Carrie walks into the Baptism Church, she is wearing a pink hat, which contrasts against Mary's red jacket. And finally, when Carrie is holding Brady right after the Baptism, there is a shot of her wearing the pink hat, juxtaposed against the bank of red candles behind her. So once again, for some reason, the colors pink and red were a focal point of this episode as well.

Barbara Ann

Correction: I'm loathe to correct this because of the obvious effort to compose it, but put simply, this is all onscreen and evident for the viewer to see for themselves. Pointing out something obvious with no explanation as to WHY it not grounds for a trivia entry, its simply not interesting.

What's sex got to do with it? - S4-E4

Corrected entry: During this episode, Trey refers twice to a certain portion of his anatomy as his 'John Thomas'. Interestingly enough, John Thomas is also the Director of Photography for 'Sex And The City'. Is this really just a coincidence?

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Given that 'John Thomas' is a common nickname for male genitals and that Mr. Thomas was also DP for episodes where they didn't use the term, yes, it's probably just a coincidence.

Old dogs, new dicks - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Steve and Miranda sleep together in the morning and she is wearing the turquoise nightgown, she gets up from bed and stands in the doorway talking to Steve and you can see she has white underwear on underneath the nightgown. They had just had sex so she didn't have time to put on underwear.

pnknlvr96

Correction: It is possible to have sex and not take your panties off.

A woman's right to shoes (a.k.a. no shoes, no service) - S6-E9

Corrected entry: Every time we see Harry walking around naked in their apartment; his back is completely free of hair and any blemishes, pits, etc. The first time he tried waxing his back; he had a terrible allergic reaction that caused a rash, and his skin was heavily pitted. So how can his back be completely clear now? Even if he decided to wax his back regularly to please Charlotte, wouldn't he still be having bad allergic reactions to the waxings and wouldn't be able to continue? And what happened to all the blemishes and cysts that were there the first time he waxed?

Barbara Ann

Correction: I have had my legs waxed for many years. One time i went to a different salon and reacted badly to that type of wax. Maybe Harry reacted badly to the first type of wax, but was OK with others.

I love a charade - S5-E8

Corrected entry: During this scene with Carrie and Berger talking, there is a white arch showing prominently in the background. This arch was built by the show, for the sole purpose of making the property look like it was part of Richard's estate.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Nearly every movie or television production requires the construction of sets and props. This isn't trivia.

Cover girl - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Charlotte throws her book out the window, it lands at the feet of a woman who according to Carrie's voiceover, 'had been contemplating a divorce', meaning she was still married. Yet when you can see her left hand as she bends down to pick up the book, there isn't a visible wedding ring. There wasn't one on her right hand either.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: If the woman was considering a divorce, her marriage was clearly not in a good way. It is not unusual for someone to stop wearing their wedding ring before a divorce is final.

I love a charade - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Charlotte and Harry are dancing at the wedding reception, he tells Charlotte that he 'has to marry a Jew'. We later learn it was a promise he made to his now deceased mother. But we also know that Harry has been married before, as he told Charlotte he lived in the bachelor pad when he was going through his own divorce. His first wife must have been a Jewish woman, since he feels he has to marry a Jew and promised it to his mother. So Harry has already married a Jew, fulfilling his promise to his mother. The promise wouldn't likely extend to two wives! So his telling Charlotte that he has to 'marry a Jew' doesn't make logical sense for his character, since he has already been married to a Jew, and it wouldn't matter what religion his second wife would be.

Barbara Ann

Correction: Yes maybe. I took the promise as "when I marry, I'll marry a Jewish woman." Obviously his mother didn't intend on having Harry divorce. He can interpret it how he likes.

All that glitters - S4-E14

Corrected entry: At the end when Carrie and Aidan are lying in bed, she is watching her snow globe and the glitter inside is moving around. That is impossible to happen without it being shaken up first. The swirling snow globe is meant to be significant but it's still a mistake.

Correction: I just saw this episode. And when Carrie is laying in bed with Aiden looking at the swirling snow globe, I had the distinct impression she was staring at it because she had probably just hopped out of bed to shake it up. Aiden was probably asleep, and she being hyper probably just was happy and decided to shake it up so she could look at it. This is part of the symbolism of why she was staring at it, since she had just stirred things up again both with the snow globe, and with her relationship with Aiden.

Plus one is the loneliest number - S5-E5

Corrected entry: When Bunny walks in on Charlotte at her apartment, they are talking in the hallway. Bunny holds up her hand, and there is a close-up of a large metal bunny key chain. This is symbolic, of course, of the character 'Bunny'.

xx:xx:xx

Barbara Ann

Correction: Since the shot is a close-up, and we're all well aware of the character's name, this is too obvious to be considered trivia.

Ring a ding ding - S4-E16

Corrected entry: After Charlotte gives Carrie her engagement ring for the down payment on her co-op, wouldn't Carrie still have to qualify for a mortgage loan? It would have made more sense if she had asked one of her more well-to-do friends to co-sign the loan for her. It wouldn't cost them anything (unless Carrie defaulted, of course) and it would explain how she managed to buy a New York co-op with $1600 worth of assets.

Correction: The assumption here, is that Charlotte is giving Carrie a ring that is worth around $30,000 for her down payment. Not $1600. (It's a VERY large diamond, Trey was exceedingly wealthy). It would still be difficult to sell, but in NYC it's possible Carrie would get a high selling price from the right jeweler. Carrie had to either buy (meaning at least come up with a down payment) or vacate her apartment within 30 days. Since she is now able to afford the $30,000 down payment (the necessary amount was shown on Big's check); than we could reasonably assume Carrie would then qualify for the rest. All she has to do now, is make monthly payments that are probably not much more than her current rent was.

Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: In the last two epsiodes, "An American Girl in Paris, Parts Une and Deux," Carrie has quit her column and is no longer writing Sex And The City, yet she still does her 'narrating the column' bit through these episodes.

Correction: This is due to the fact that Carrie is a writer, and wouldn't stop writing after losing her column in NYC. She may have been keeping a journal in Paris, or writing for her own benefit - perhaps thinking it might be good material for a future book, etc. Just because she was no longer working for the Star, doesn't mean as a person she would stop writing. Also, she may have had doubts inside about her move, and was writing in case things didn't work out and she moved back to NYC and got her column back (which is what happened!).

Let there be light - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Carrie wakes up at Aleksander's house and he's not there, we can see her hair is curled. When she arrived at the apartment, and also when she leaves (to look for him in his studio), her hair is straightened.

Correction: There is no continuity error. Carrie straightened her hair before going over to Aleksander's house, for her 'look'. Then since her hair is naturally curly, it went back to that state while she was sleeping (and with moisture in the air). Then, there is an implied amount of time after she wakes up, and before she goes to leave, that she took a shower, straightened her hair again, etc. In essence, getting her 'look' ready for the day.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Trey's mother Bunny is meant to be Scottish but her accent is English.

Correction: Bunny's accent actually isn't British. It's classic "highbrow East Coast," which makes perfect sense.

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

Corrected entry: Before Berger passes out on Carrie's bed, he takes off his jacket and sports coat, and even begins unbuttoning his shirt. When the 2 wake up in the morning, Berger's shirt is buttoned up, and his sports jacket is back on. I don't know about you, but when I pass out I don't wake up to put clothes back on.

Ral0618

Correction: Berger never takes his jacket or shirt off. He starts to, but it only makes it to his shoulder. He is dressed when he falls asleep.

A woman's right to shoes (a.k.a. no shoes, no service) - S6-E9

Corrected entry: Before Samantha confronts the mother and noisy child in the restaurant, she lays her cell phone on the table. But when she leaves, she only grabs her purse.

Ral0618

Correction: So she left her phone at the restaurant. If she used that cell phone just after leaving it, that would be a mistake, but as such it's simply a character mistake, not a 'movie' mistake.

Politically erect - S3-E2

Corrected entry: When Samantha takes the "short guy" to bed, he supposedly jumps on top of her; but you can see in the mirror above her bed that he lands on the bed, next to her body.

Ral0618

Correction: That is false. You can not see a mirror above the bed at all.

Escape from new york - S3-E13

Corrected entry: Charlotte is worried that Trey's inability to perform in bed is physiological, and is relieved to learn that he can have an erection. In a previous episode she gave him a hand job, so she should already know that he can get it up.

Correction: In fact, believe it or not, it is possible for a man to be manually masturbated to orgasm by a sexual partner without achieving an erection - hence Charlotte's concern.

Ghost town - S4-E5

Corrected entry: When Charlotte, Trey, and Bunny are shopping for a new bed, Trey and Bunny lay down on the bed with a large space between them. But when Charlotte comes to lay on the bed, there is no space between Trey and Bunny at all.

Bobbert

Correction: Trey is scooting closer to his mother as he is laying down. Then it cuts to Charlotte, then when it cuts back to Trey and Bunny, the are laying right next to each other with no space. Then Charlotte comes and lays down. There is plenty of time during the cut to Charlotte for Trey to have finished moving and be right next to Bunny.

An american girl in paris (part une) - S6-E19

Corrected entry: In the opening scene, as Carrie is packing for Paris, a black and white striped outfit hanging up behind her keeps appearing and disappearing throughout the scene.

Tina Gilliam

Correction: I have watched this scene, and the black and white dress is there the entire time. Sometimes the shot is from a different angle, where you can't see the closet or the dress hanging, but that's just the angle of the camera (aimed toward her living room). In the shots of her closet, the dress is always there.

Show generally

Corrected entry: During the open credits we see the bus splashing Carrie has her poster on it. Her head on the poster is facing the left of the screen, but in the Season One episode where the bus makes its debut the poster is reversed, with Carries head on the right side.

troy fox

Correction: The newspaper ad people reversed the picture. Not unusual.

The domino effect - S6-E11

Corrected entry: When Charlotte has her first visit to Dr. Mao's, the switch for the relaxing music is positioned right above the light switch in the treatment room, next to the door. At her next visit, you can hear the clicking sound as Dr. Mao turns the music on, but there's no switch on the wall.

Correction: Charlotte could be in a different treatment room where the switch is in a different spot.

Splat! - S6-E18

Corrected entry: Carrie claims to have never tasted espresso before when Petrovsky buys her a machine, but in Season 1 episode 3 ("Bay of Married Pigs") she is having lunch with some married friends, and they set her up with a friend. They get on well, and the voiceover says "two espressos and a tiramisu later" and we see Carrie drinking her espresso.

Correction: Carrie never says that she hasn't tasted espresso before, she just seems unfamiliar with it throughout the episode. If she hasn't had it in five years, this is completely normal.

I heart ny - S4-E18

Corrected entry: At Brady's birth Steve counts to five fingers, five toes and two balls. He wouldn't be able to tell: boy babies are born with their testicles still inside their body.

Correction: He was probably saying it tongue-in-cheek. Not entirely seriously. Because Steve only has one ball, (and he sees this as a fault and a really big deal) he's pleased that his son, Brady is 'normal'.

The big journey - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode when Carrie and Samantha go to San Francisco there is a scene when Samantha is in the bath. She stands up and her front is covered in bubbles, when she gets out the bath you can see in the mirror behind her that she is wearing a red bra and knickers set. Why bother covering up, when viewers have seen much more of her than her backside in the past?

Correction: I just watched that episode and all I could see was a tanline.

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

Corrected entry: When shopping with Samantha, Carrie picks out the pink fluffy shoes, but when she wears them for Berger later on in the episode they are red.

Shay

Correction: Carrie just holds up the pink shoe to try it on in her size. We don't see her buy the pink ones, so it's reasonable to think that she changed her mind on the color before leaving the store.

Ral0618

Baby, talk is cheap - S4-E6

Corrected entry: Where did Carrie get Aidan's e-mail address? He certainly didn't give it to her.

Correction: Carrie was dating Aidan for almost a year; he could have given it to her, even though she herself didn't have an email address. He, also, has a business. She could have looked up his business on the internet and got his email there.

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.

My motherboard, my self - S4-E8

Corrected entry: When Carrie takes her laptop to be repaired, the supposed expert says that "Ctrl Alt Delete," only works on PCs and it's therefore implied that it didn't work because this is a laptop. This of course is totally incorrect; Ctrl Alt Delete is a Windows function and therefore works on anything which has Windows, regardless of it being a PC or laptop.

David Mercier

Correction: It's because her laptop is a Mac. PC is a generic "IBM compatible" term which covers both desktops and laptops.

pinkwafer

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.
