Continuity mistake: Miranda leaves to order the breakfast check and Sam starts to take a spoon of cereal to her mouth. A shot later Miranda shows up (all of the chitchat continues, so there's no ellipsis) and Sam's spoon is back in the bowl and she is already chewing. The part of her eating is missing.

Visible crew/equipment: The girls pick up Sam and when the cab leaves the camera is reflected on the rear window. (Pausing is not necessary at all, but it's fun to pause and check for a huge white sheet behind the camera, which gives away the mistake).

Continuity mistake: James walks towards the cab and kisses Sam goodbye, shot changes and he walks away backwards. Back to a shot on Sam and now check the reflection on the window below - James is now really close to the taxi and walking backwards again.

Carrie: Toto, I don't think we're in single digits anymore.
