Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: Up until this time, the baby Brady has been shown to be larger, with a very round face and red hair. But when they show the baby in the crib (04:22) this is a different baby. It's much younger, smaller, no round face, and has dark brown hair. And later, when Steve's mother shows Miranda the photo of Brady, (14:21) again it's a much smaller, younger baby with dark brown hair, and no round face. During the actual Baptism, when they show close-ups of Carrie holding Brady while Charlotte takes pictures; (26:20) the baby looks like yet another baby that is smaller and younger, but appears to have reddish hair. Looks like they used 3 different babies to represent Brady at this point. (00:04:20 - 00:26:20)

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: When the baby is about to be baptised, it is replaced by a blatant doll: The doll's arm is stretched out (as opposed to the real baby's arms, tucked in his robe), and the doll's hair is very obviously painted.

Samantha: There isn't enough wall space in New York City to hang all of my exes. Let me tell you, a lot of them were hung.
