Continuity mistake: While Charlotte and Anthony groom the dog for the contest, a girl in a blue and white striped T-shirt walks by several times in all directions, no continuity at all. Also, the rest of the passers-by disappear in the opposite shots.

Plot hole: When Carrie calls the girls from Aleksandr's couch, she is wearing one outfit. In voice-over, she says she stayed at his apartment for 4 days. But then when she finally arrives home, she is wearing a completely different outfit. How would she have so many clothes to wear, when she didn't expect to be away from home for 4 days? She wasn't carrying any luggage or other clothing with her when she came home, either. (00:09:25)

Carrie: I stopped watching TV when people started putting leeches down their pants.
