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.
Continuity mistake: In the episode "Secret Sex," Samantha and Carrie are hanging Carrie's poster in her apartment. In one shot, the whole poster is pinned to the wall and in the next shot, the bottom left part of the poster is curling up. After another shot of Samantha, the poster is pinned perfectly to the wall again.
Continuity mistake: When Samantha is talking to Carrie on the beach, Carrie lifts her arm up and places her hand on her head. The reflection on Samantha's glasses show Carrie lowering her arm, but the shot changes back to Carrie and the movement she is doing is not downwards but backwards, leading hear hand to the nape.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carrie and Miranda are eating cakes outside the shop, talking about Miranda having to be supportive to Steve about his basketball competition, keep an eye on Miranda's cake. She takes bites out of the cake and then when it is down to the last bite, the camera shows Carrie, then shows Miranda again with the cake suddenly full again.
Continuity mistake: In season 1 "Valley of the 20-Something Guys," Carrie receives a phone call from Samantha and her voice over says she needs her morning Marlboro Light, however, when she picks up her pack of cigarettes, you can see that it is a pack of Merits.
Continuity mistake: The episode 'Attack of the 5 foot 10 woman' in season three, when Charlotte is afraid of the sauna. She is running into the sauna with a towel wrapped around her waist. The towel comes loose and is nearly falling off - but in the next shot it is neatly tied around her waist.
Audio problem: When Samantha and Carrie are in their room on the train, Samantha starts to pour herself a glass of champagne. We hear it pouring for a few seconds until it sounds like the glass is full but when she puts the bottle down, there's barely anything in her glass.
Continuity mistake: In the episode where Big returns from Paris, Carrie meets him at his apartment with a beret and 2 McDonalds bags. She says she got a Big Mac and a Filet O'Fish. She asks him which one he wants, holding the Big Mac in her left hand and the Filet O'Fish in her right. Instantly the sandwiches switch hands in the next shot as Big walks to the right.

Other mistake: When Carrie, Samantha and Miranda step outside of the hotel so Carrie can have a cigarette, she takes a couple of draws then throws it down on the step. She tries to stub it out with her shoe by twisting her foot on it but she (the actress) accidentally kicks the cigarette down the step, so she has to just pretend to still be stubbing it out.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is startled by the squirrel and tosses the pie crust onto the counter, the camera cuts to her clasping her legs where she burnt them. In the next shot of the counter the pie crust has vanished; then in the next shot of it, the crust has returned.
Factual error: Throughout this episode, when Carrie talks about the functions of the left vs. right sides of the brain, she has them backwards. The right side of the brain is the creative side, the left is the logical one. Apparently, the writers liked the idea that the "right" side of Carrie's brain would ultimately lead her to do the "right" thing about Mr. Big, but that's not the case. Rational decision are made with the brain's left side. (But then again, Carrie never was very rational when it came to Mr. Big.).
Revealing mistake: When Carrie bumps into Mr. Big and her purse falls, watch the people in the background carefully. Many of them are watching the couple talk and interact with each other. On a busy New York street nobody is going to pay attention to two people having a conversation. Apparently all these people were watching the shooting of the scene.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is telling Alex about her Parisian fans and the party she's been invited to, her cigarette pack not only changes position in her hand with her coffee cup, but also disappears and reappears several times.
Continuity mistake: When Samantha and her date are in the health food restaurant, she orders wheatgrass shots. The waiter pours them, filling the cups to the brim and then sets one on the table in front of each of them and we see again in a close up that they are both full up. Yet when Samantha picks up hers to drink, the liquid level has gone down a little way.
Plot hole: When Carrie runs into Aiden on the street, he tells her that he 'married another furniture designer'. Although Carrie is happy for him, it doesn't seem likely that she wouldn't have known about this. Steve and Aiden are business partners and close friends, and Miranda is very close to Steve with their baby. Carrie would have undoubtedly heard about Aiden's marriage through the 'friends grapevine' before that, as news that big wouldn't just slip under the radar. Someone would have told her, so it isn't logical that she is just now finding out about Aiden's marriage.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the show, when Carrie visits Jeremy at the psychiatric facility, they are sitting outside having a picnic. As they are talking, notice Carrie's necklace. It is a bolero-type necklace and the red stones on the end move up the necklace to near the clasp and then back down into her cleavage. Then they go back up again.
Continuity mistake: Carrie goes inside the changing booth to try on the pink outfit. Then after Stanford and Marcus arrive, Carrie suddenly whips the curtain open to reveal herself completely changed into the new outfit including shoes, after only 21 seconds. These events happen in real time; and there is no logical way that Carrie could have changed from one complete outfit to another in that time.
Revealing mistake: The scene where Charlotte is shown sleeping with her new 'plus one' to the next morning was all filmed in entirely one sequence, real time, without any editing. Therefore, Charlotte had to change really quickly into her lingerie, and get into position for the morning shot in a very short period of time. As the camera pans away from Charlotte taking off her clothes at night, there is a mirror on the wall behind her. If you look closely at the mirror, Charlotte appears to fall over quickly, and then suddenly roll/move to the right side and get off of the bed, as if to change into her morning outfit.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Shaun are laying on the floor of her bedroom, she has her left hand resting on her chest. But in the very next shot; her left arm is laying across her stomach, and her left hand is curved around her right waist. No time has passed in between these shots.
Revealing mistake: When Charlotte is putting her diamond ring on in her apartment, there is a close-up shot of it. It is a large, circular diamond on a simple golden band. This is not the same diamond engagement ring she has been wearing previously in the series. That ring had two parallel silver bands, and the diamond looked slightly different.
Continuity mistake: Carrie is sitting at her laptop eating a blue ice pop. She takes a bite from the top then holds the stick with the rest of the ice pop in between her teeth while she types on the laptop, we see a shot of the screen. When we go back to Carrie she is eating the rest of the ice pop which is impossible because just 2 seconds before it was still attached to the stick. She didn't have time to bite it off the stick because she was using both her hands to type.
Continuity mistake: When we first see the 3 sailors walking down the NYC street, they are in a close-up shot that cuts off about where their knees would be. But the next shot of them as Miranda turns around; the sailors are much further away, showing all of them. Then for the final shot; the sailors are closer as they would be normally, but still not as close as the first shot. Their feet are still not showing.
Deliberate mistake: Whenever Charlotte and Trey are shown sitting on the therapist's couch, Charlotte is considerably taller than Trey. They are both sitting on exactly the same surface, so there is no logical reason for this. In reality, Trey is actually taller than Charlotte. She should not be sticking up higher than him on the couch.
Plot hole: At the beginning of this episode, Carrie mentions in voiceover that they had been in LA for over a week. It's obvious in this episode, that they are staying in LA for a second week. But Carrie never showed up at the second meeting for the Production Company, which would have ended her work with them. Since the Production Company was paying for 2 hotel rooms; it isn't likely they would have let the girls stay in those rooms for 2 weeks for free, when Carrie quit the project after only a few days. And it's doubtful the girls would have elected to pay full price for an expensive hotel in LA for almost 2 weeks on their own, when they had expected to stay there for free.
Continuity mistake: Carrie and her friends are in the City, waiting for the bus with her photo on it to drive by. When it does, there is a shocking hand-drawn image of a sexual nature near her head on the poster. In the next shot of this image, which is more of a close-up; it's a different drawing. Very similar, but obviously not the same drawing as shown the first time.
Revealing mistake: When Samantha is walking down a busy NYC street talking on her cell to Carrie, you can see a man in a blue jacket walking right behind her. The next shot of him; he suddenly pulls out an obvious black camera and takes a photo, aiming it directly at Samantha in front of him. This is apparently not an 'extra', but someone on the street who wanted to take a picture of Kim. There are also a lot of other people in the background walking behind her at this point. But in the next shot of Samantha still walking on the same street and talking on the phone, there are suddenly no people right behind her at all. It's an empty space, and no time has passed for them to have dispersed. They may have cleared the area behind her; because people weren't behaving properly during filming, such as the man taking her picture. This would normally be a continuity error; except that in this case I believe the sudden change in background was due to the guy taking the picture inappropriately, not just a slip in background filming.
Revealing mistake: During the scene when the girls are walking down the street, 'strutting' fully dressed up on their way to the Navy party, look behind them in the distance. There appears to be a great crowd of people gathered behind what might be a barrier. These look like people just watching the filming. This is more clear at the very beginning of the scene, when the girls first begin walking down the street. Also, in the TBS web site in the episode guide, there is a photo of this very same scene shot from a different side angle. You can see a definite barrier on the sidewalk to the left, filled with onlookers who are watching the filming. Thus, it's possible that the people in the rear visible in the show, are the same.
Continuity mistake: Carrie is in the hotel bed from her night with the French Architect, who is just leaving for the Airport. There is a shot of the small table by the bed, with the phone sitting on it. You cannot see any envelope at all resting against the phone, or visible at all. But with the next close-up, suddenly there is a large business-size envelope with her name on it resting prominently against the front of the phone. This envelope was not there previously.
Revealing mistake: When Carrie and Berger are talking on the grass, Berger suddenly gets up to leave. He grabs his jacket which Carrie is sitting on, knocking her over. As she falls back, you can see her quickly pull the front of her shirt over herself to make sure it covers her pregnant belly. Also, as Carrie starts to get up, there is a point where her shirt falls forward, and you can see Sarah Jessica Parker's pregnant bulge from the side.
Revealing mistake: When Carrie is watching TV in her apartment, she uses the remote to click off the TV after SNL is over. There is a close-up of the TV screen, reflecting the room in front of it. You can see a round table with a lot of stuff on it, the windows/curtains and desk, and what appears to be a square ottoman of some kind. But Carrie is nowhere in sight, there is just a blank wall reflected where her image should have been. She is directly facing her TV, as shown from the angle of her perspective as she clicks it off. We should be able to see her somewhere within the television reflection, but she isn't there.
Other mistake: When the plastic surgeon is giving Samantha a breast exam, you can tell that he isn't really examining her breast. He is actually moving his hand in a circular motion in the air above her breast pretending to give her an exam, but is touching her hospital gown instead.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is showering after being stood up at her party she is not wearing mascara as she stands with her face under the water, then as she opens the curtain to talk to Charlotte again there is no mascara. She puts her hands briefly over her eyes and when she takes them away, mascara is visible all over her eyes and cheeks.
Plot hole: After dinner, Carrie is using her computer when Aiden suddenly is shown logging onto her AOL Buddy List. (Upper right of her computer screen). Since Carrie is unfamiliar with AOL, the Internet or how to use the Buddy List features, it's unlikely she would have already added Aiden ("AidenNYC") to her Buddy List. And you have to manually add someone to your Buddy List, it doesn't just automatically appear when you use email. But since Carrie apparently doesn't have any idea how the Buddy List/IM system works on AOL (according to her trying to 'hide' from it); she wouldn't have thought to manually add Aiden to the Buddy List at this point. It doesn't make sense.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is reading the magazine and Aiden punches a hole through her wall, the hole looks to be about 4 feet from the corner of the wall. But after Carrie gets up and runs into the other apartment to confront Aiden, the hole in the other side of the wall is suddenly about 8 feet from the same corner, much further away.
Plot hole: When Carrie is sitting on the kitchen table after Aiden ices her legs, they begin to kiss. As they lean back over the table; Carrie stretches her legs out and wraps them around Aiden, rubbing them against him several times. She has just been painfully burned on her legs, but suddenly has no problem rubbing the burned areas against his waist without any pain, problems or hesitation. She is acting as if she was never burned; but the skin would have still been tender, and it would have hurt to brush it against Aiden in that manner.
Continuity mistake: As the group are discussing Samantha's nude photos in the restaurant, a salad Miranda has ordered arrives at the table. Just after Carrie says "that we know of" you can see the waitress place both the salad and a ramekin of dressing onto the table from behind Miranda. The shot then cuts to the front and the waitress is shown putting the ramekin down for the second time.
Plot hole: When Carrie sits down to read Aiden's 'farewell letter,' she discovers he has left her legal papers instead. Miranda later examines the legal documents, and explains the terms at the restaurant. But Aiden has only just moved out that day, and had spent the previous night in the apartment next door. (This was made clear in the previous episode, when Carrie explains in voiceover that 'the next day, Aiden moved out'.) He has spent the day moving his things out; there is no logical way he would have had time to contact a legal firm, make an appointment, go to the appointment, make arrangements to deal with Carrie's apartment, and have complex legal documents drawn up and ready to give to Carrie. None of this could have possibly happened between the night before when Aiden decided to end the relationship, and the next day when he physically moved out. No additional time has passed, as Carrie asks him to stay 'one more day', implying this really is the day after the previous episode.
Plot hole: When Charlotte runs out of the restaurant; her male friend is still chasing her, and you can see him follow her out the door to the sidewalk. But then Charlotte falls in front of Trey's taxi, and Trey gets out to help her up and they meet. Meanwhile, where is Charlotte's friend? He would have still been outside, have seen her fall, and surely would have ran over to help Charlotte and see if she was OK. Yet we never see him again after she falls, and he virtually disappears from the scene.
Plot hole: After Carrie misses the Staten Island Ferry, Bill Kelly suddenly drives up in his own car to offer her a ride home. She accepts, and gets in the car. He then asks her 'how do they get off the island' as if he has no idea of what roads to take. But he has obviously driven his own car TO Staten Island, so he should know the way back.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Brady has the Chicken Pox. But when Robert visits Miranda at home and picks up Brady, there is absolutely no sign at all that he has Chicken Pox. It takes awhile to get over Chicken Pox, and for them to fade. So even if Brady is recovering from having Chicken Pox recently, he would still show signs of it. It couldn't go away that fast, and it's way too soon for Brady to be completely clear.
Continuity mistake: During this scene when Samantha is confronting her new assistant, the office set-up is completely different than before, when Nina G. was working for her. The assistant office space is much larger, glass desk, different angle, next to small conference room instead of Samantha's office, etc.; obviously not the same office set as previously used. Yet Samantha has not changed offices at all during this time period, as it wasn't too long ago when she fired Nina G. Something as major as changing offices would definitely have been mentioned in the plot (as changing apartments always is); and there hasn't been enough time since she fired Nina G.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is in Big's kitchen, and hears Natasha come home, she tries to leave in a hurry. She puts on her blue levi jacket, so it's about halfway on with her left arm in the sleeve. But in the next shot of her, Carrie is suddenly wearing only her pink bra and carrying the blue jacket. As she unlocks the door and starts running down the stairs, she throws on the blue levi jacket for the second time.
Revealing mistake: At the end of this episode when Carrie is walking away from Mr. Big's apartment; she notices an Autumn leaf, and follows it with her eyes as it floats down to the ground. However, this leaf is actually digital and not real. Sarah Jessica Parker had to pretend to be staring at a leaf that wasn't there while filming; and if you watch her gaze carefully, it doesn't always follow the path of the leaf. She looks down too soon, before the leaf has a chance to float down that far.
Continuity mistake: When Charlotte is signing her divorce papers, there is a close-up of Harry's face leaning over her. It's covered with large drops of sweat, some of which drip onto the paper. But in the next shot of Harry when he is standing up, he isn't nearly as sweaty. Most of the perspiration on his face seems to have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When sitting at the bar, Samantha points to Charlotte and her date, who are heading up the stairs arm in arm carrying nothing. Yet in the next scene when they arrive at the honeymoon suite, they suddenly have their arms full with a large bag and a basket.
Character mistake: When Charlotte is looking at her wedding announcement in the New York Times, there is a close-up shot of part of the article. It says, in reference to Charlotte: "She is a writer and editor at Fashions Magazine in Manhattan". This is not true, nor has it ever been true. Perhaps the producers of the show threw that in, to see if anyone would notice. Also, the same article mentions: "The bride, who will be keeping her name..." and yet we never really hear Charlotte use the name York instead of Goldenblatt.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is holding the pie pan, she is startled by the squirrel on the window and drops the hot pan, burning her legs. She is facing forward directly towards the pie pan, and as it falls it could only have burned the front and possibly a little of the sides of her legs. But later when she is sitting on the kitchen table, Aiden takes some ice from the iced tea pitcher and puts it in both of his hands. He then asks her where she was burned, and proceeds to gently rub the ice on the back of both of her legs, not the front or sides where she was burned. He is only rubbing the back of her calves, below the knees.
00:25:00 - 00:25:45
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Steve are sitting on his front steps discussing Aiden, Carrie is looking forward as Steve says "He lost his ability to open up and trust women." At that moment; Carrie turns her face towards Steve to her left, and keeps it there as she is appalled. But the very next shot; Carrie is suddenly facing forward again, and then starts turning her head left towards Steve for a second time. But in the next shot; she is already facing Steve, from the first time she reacted to what he said. It's clear that she had never actually moved her head after the first time.
Audio problem: 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.
Continuity mistake: After Carrie rents the car and takes it back, she and Miranda are sitting on the couch talking. As Carrie says something, she turns her head to the right, looking straight at Miranda. When Miranda replies, "Well, that's one option", you can still see Carrie's head in the shot, turned towards Miranda on the right. But then in the next shot of Carrie, she is facing straight ahead and talking in the middle of a sentence.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is lying on her bed, she is wearing yellow pants over a green top. The top portion of her pants is unbuttoned/unzipped as she moves. But after she picks up the phone to call Big, she is sitting up on her bed, and her pants are suddenly buttoned/zipped completely up. There was no opportunity in this sequence for her to have closed her pants.
Continuity mistake: After Amelita buys Carrie the shoes and Carrie turns to walk out, Amelita is standing right behind her still talking yet when the shot changes to Carrie walking out the door, although we can still hear Amelita chattering, she's no longer standing there or anywhere in sight.
Revealing mistake: When the transvestite is throwing eggs at Samantha's window, she is holding the cardboard egg container in her left hand. She keeps throwing eggs, but you can tell by the way she is holding the egg container that it is really empty. It flops down vertically from her hand, and there is no way eggs would be able to remain in the egg crate by holding it in that manner.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie has left the dessert place and is walking in the street; just before she sees the small child, there are two extras (male and female) behind her using a single umbrella. After the small child hits Carrie on the head, you can see the same two extras behind her without an umbrella. When the small child sticks out her tongue at Carrie, you can again see the two extras right behind Carrie, still not using an umbrella. When Carrie looks back again, just before stepping in dog poo, suddenly the two extras are completely gone, and the street is almost empty. Then when Carrie does step in the dog poo, the two extras are seen again farther back, again using the umbrella. In the next shot, a close-up of Carrie, the two extras are right behind her again, and passing her, without using an umbrella. At this point Carrie speaks to an older man coming from in front of her, and the two extras have completely disappeared from the street again, even though they have just passed her. This entire sequence took place in a very short period of time, and was obviously edited together.
Continuity mistake: After Carrie asks Ray if he wants to 'play her', she pulls down the neckline of her top to reveal a strap on her left shoulder. But in the next shot when Ray moves behind Carrie and we are facing them, suddenly her top is pulled back up, and there is no strap showing. This was a seamless transition, and there was no time for anyone to have pulled her top back up.
Revealing mistake: During this scene, Samantha throws a cantaloupe through the window. As Sarah Jessica Parker reacts to the incident, you can see her very pregnant belly from the side, especially as she bends over. According to the commentary, she was about 7 months pregnant at the time.
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
Continuity mistake: When Miranda is running in the streets looking for Mary, there is a close-up shot of her face. You can see that it's raining heavily, as the rain is apparent in the scene. But during the rest of that sequence, as she is out in the streets, there are no other signs of rain, or of people being affected by rain. There is just snow on the ground.
Revealing mistake: When Samantha is surprised at Richard's apartment by his assistant, she quickly throws her towel around herself to cover up. But the towel rides up too far, and you can see that Kim Cattrall is wearing tan or nude colored underwear. Soon after that, Samantha makes a comment to the assistant that implies she was nude under the towel. So the panties were probably for the benefit of the actress, to protect her modesty below the waist.
Plot hole: When there is a close-up shot of Charlotte and Harry's wedding announcement in the New York Times, there is a large article to the left and above. If you read what it says, it appears to actually be a tongue-in-cheek wedding announcement referencing Mr. Big and Natasha's former wedding. The college information is off (Rutgers instead of Tulane), but some of the other information alludes to their previous wedding in the Hamptons, and how they met. Also the name Natasha is mentioned several times. Yet we know that this wedding happened some time ago, so it couldn't possibly be running in that day's New York Times.
Continuity mistake: When Samantha first puts on the gold necklace in the hotel room, the pendants dangling on the right side are lying over the right lapel of her blouse. But after Samantha walks the housekeeper out the door and turns to face Richard, suddenly the same pendants on the necklace are underneath the lapel, though she did not have a chance to fix the necklace in this time.
Revealing mistake: When Charlotte arrives at Carrie's apartment to pick her up, Carrie is in the shower. As Charlotte walks towards the bathroom, there is a clear shot of Carrie showering. Sarah Jessica Parker appears to be wearing some sort of minimal tan colored undergarments, to protect her modesty while filming.
Plot hole: When Aiden suddenly shows up below Carrie's window the night of their dinner together, she gets up and looks down at him from her apartment. He suddenly starts to run into the building, and at the same time Carrie immediately starts running quickly through her small apartment to get to the front door. It would have only taken Carrie a few seconds to get across her apartment, but Aiden would have had to run up the three or four flights of stairs to reach the front door of Carrie's apartment . That would obviously have taken much longer; yet as soon as Carrie opens the door, Aiden is already there and running into the apartment.
Plot hole: When Charlotte places her ring box in front of Carrie on the table at the restaurant, there is a close-up shot showing that she is still wearing her simple gold wedding band on her right hand. The entire episode has emphasized that it's strange for Charlotte to still be wearing her diamond engagement ring when she is alone, since she is getting a divorce. So why is nothing mentioned about her continuing to wear her gold wedding band? That doesn't seem to be an issue, but wouldn't it be just as strange?
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Carrie and Sam are in the changing booth at the clothing store, Carrie starts helping Sam take his shirt off. She pulls the outer plaid shirt down quite a bit, revealing his white undershirt. But in the next shot of him, Sam suddenly has the plaid shirt back up around his neck. Then in his next shot, it's back down and the white undershirt is showing again.
Revealing mistake: Just after Big has left NY for good, Carrie leaves his apartment and is walking down the street. A leaf (that another mistake pointed out was digital as it was falling to the ground) is lying on the sidewalk. Carrie picks it up, but it is obviously an artificial one made from plastic and fabric.
Continuity mistake: According to the commentary, one of the problems with this final season was that all of the babies used for Miranda had grown to the level where they were crying almost all of the time. Therefore, they had to switch babies a lot, even within scenes.
Visible crew/equipment: When Charlotte leaves her apartment building on the way to the party, she puts on large sunglasses. You can see what appears to be camera equipment, in the reflection of the plastic lenses. There are two white squares, which look like a camera light and filter screen.
Continuity mistake: 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.
Continuity mistake: When the horse drawn buggy is pulling over to the curb in front of the hospital, you can see it dodging traffic and cars. But after Carrie leaves and the buggy pulls away with only Mr. Big, suddenly there are no cars or traffic in sight. The entire street from that direction appears to be completely empty.
Continuity mistake: In one of the deleted scenes for this episode, Carrie has to take her laptop out of her purse in order to make room for the garment. She throws the laptop on the bed, with the 'Apple' symbol facing down. But just after that, the laptop is shown lying on the bed with the 'Apple' symbol facing up. To my knowledge, there is no 'Apple' logo on the bottom of the laptop.
Continuity mistake: In the first shot of the diner as the girls are waiting for Carrie to arrive, the baby photo of Charlotte's daughter is not visible on the table. When Carrie comes in, there is a clear shot of the entire table, and the baby photo is still nowhere in sight. But in the shot where Carrie sits down at the table with the girls, the baby photo is suddenly sitting upright on the table near Charlotte, and fully visible. There was no time for this to happen, as they are just sitting down. Carrie is still hugging her friends (Charlotte) at the table.
Continuity mistake: When Charlotte and Trey are in bed together, Trey suddenly sits up and is about two feet away from Charlotte as he says, 'Darling, I'm juicy now.' But in the very next shot, Trey is suddenly leaning back down and much closer to Charlotte, only inches from her face. No time has passed in between these two shots.
Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie and Aleksander arrive at the museum, he turns to close the cab door and his back is facing us. You can see the outline of a long cable running vertically down the center of his back, protruding from under his jacket. This cable goes from his neck down to the bottom flap of his jacket, and must be part of his mic.
Continuity mistake: When Charlotte and Anthony are talking on the park bench, Charlotte is looking at Anthony to her right as she says "No next, it doesn't work like that". She then turns her head back to face forward, when she is through speaking. But the very next shot, Charlotte has her head turned towards the right, and is facing Anthony again.
Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie arrives at the hospital room, Miranda is walking back and forth trying to break her water. When she turns back towards Carrie, you can see something sticking out prominently from under her hospital gown on the right side of her abdomen. The object appears to be swinging around on a line or wire as Miranda moves. When Miranda gets closer to Carrie and finally stops just in front of her; you can see the entire wire or line attached to the object slanting diagonally from her left shoulder, across her chest and down her abdomen, just right of the center. The protruding object, and line or wire must be her mic.
Continuity mistake: Right before the '3-way'; Samantha takes off the top of her lingerie/dress and pushes it down to her waist, to reveal a strapless black bra she is wearing underneath. She does this in response to the younger girl removing her top, and they are both obviously getting ready for the main event. But in the next shot when Samantha is kissing Richard in bed, she is suddenly wearing the black lingerie/dress pulled back up over her shoulders again. Why would she put the dress back on, after removing it for sex?
Continuity mistake: When Steve is wiping Miranda's face with the baby wipes, there are still a few smudges on her forehead. But after she chases him across the room and back again, suddenly the smudges are gone, and her forehead and face are entirely clear of anything. She did not have a chance to wipe her skin at all.
Continuity mistake: The amount of hair Samantha shaves off before Smith comes in increases without her shaving any more. She takes off two chunks, he comes in, and when he starts shaving his head, she's suddenly buzzed to a number 2 cut on a whole part of her head.
Continuity mistake: When Samantha is in the waiting room to get her results for the AIDS test; the wide shot shows two women seated in the orange chairs on the left. One of them has a pony tail and glasses. A man with dark hair is also seated in the chairs on the right. But when we see the waiting room again right before Samantha faints; only one woman is seated in the orange chairs on the left, and the woman with the pony tail and glasses has moved down, and over to the far yellow chairs on the left. There is also a second man in a blue shirt seated closer to Samantha, in the chairs on the right. This entire scene occurred in seconds; and there was no time for anyone to have gotten up, sat down or moved locations.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie is trying to hail a cab, you can see her walking down a busy street in NYC. Big's black sedan is nowhere in sight. But a moment later; his black car suddenly pulls over to the curb right behind her, as if it was just next to her in traffic. There was no time for it to have come from anywhere else, or across from a far lane. The car was not further down the street coming towards her either, as you can see from the long shot. Big's sedan was not present in the street, before it pulled to the curb behind her.
Continuity mistake: Just before Carrie sees the mouse, she sets her two wine glasses down on the counter in the middle. The mouse appears and the shot cuts to her screaming, then to Alecsander slamming the frying pan down on the mouse, and the two glasses have moved to one side, out of the way of the pan.
Deliberate mistake: At RAW, just as the host starts showing the girls to their table, there is a lady at the bottom right corner of the screen whom you can see is only pretending to eat her food. She puts it up to her mouth, pretends to take a bite, then moves it away again.
Audio problem: When Big calls Carrie and is leaving a message after Carrie has long since moved to Paris, Charlotte is there. She picks up the phone and says "Hi, it's Charlotte", but her mouth does not match the words. Her mouth says something like "Hey" not "Hi".
Continuity mistake: When Carrie enters the Dior store from the rain, she slips and falls. When she first starts falling, her arms are outstretched widely above her head. But the very next shot suddenly shows her hitting the floor, with her arms down in front of her to break the fall. There was no time for her to have moved her arms that quickly.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Big comes up to the cabin to talk to Carrie, he isn't wearing glasses. After he drinks too much wine, they decide he has to stay the night at the cabin. Aiden throws him a pillow and blanket. Right when the blanket hits Mr. Big as he is sitting in the chair, you can suddenly see what look like some sort of metal frame glasses hanging vertically/falling off from Mr. Big's face, as if they were knocked off by the blanket. Where did the glasses come from? He wasn't wearing them just before that.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Miranda are getting on the bus to Atlantic City, an older lady dressed in pink is sitting down right behind them. As the scene continues, we can see many more people filing onto the bus as the girls talk. But in the next shot of the entire bus, suddenly there is no one at all behind Carrie and Miranda. Not even the lady in pink; the entire bus behind them is empty, although people are still getting on.
00:09:25 - 00:10:35
Revealing mistake: When Jeremy comes to visit Carrie at her apartment, he is wearing a white polo style Lacoste Izod shirt. There is a noticeable rip or small hole in the upper shoulder of the shirt, visible on screen. This was intentional by the wardrobe department. They wanted to show that despite Jeremy being an older, Ivy League kind of guy, he came back still dressed similar to how Carrie would have seen him in high school.
Revealing mistake: When Samantha and her partner are using the 'swing,' you can tell from the long shot that Kim Cattrall is actually wearing some sort of prosthetic around her hips, to simulate her rear area. It is larger, and sticks out prominently in an unnatural manner. This was probably done to ensure modesty for the actress.
Revealing mistake: When Samantha and Maria are in the bath tub arguing; Samantha decides to leave, and suddenly gets up out of the water. She is not wearing anything from the waist up; but if you look closely just at the end of the scene, you can briefly see that Kim Cattrall is actually wearing some sort of minimal dark undergarment below her waist to cover herself. You can see a black strip of material across her hips.
Revealing mistake: When the gardener hands Charlotte the rose, he is supposedly picking it out of some rose bushes he is in the process of planting. He even makes a motion as if 'picking' it from the bunch. But when he hands the single long stem rose to Charlotte; it's obvious that this rose has already been cut, and is missing the lower leaves.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Mr. Big are having their affair in the 3rd hotel; it is located on 56th & 8th, and is described as being a 'seedy location'. When you see the inside of the hotel room, it is obviously a very cheap, tacky hotel. But later in the episode when Carrie and Mr. Big are in the lobby of this same hotel on 56th & 8th (verified in voice over); it is obviously the lobby of a much nicer, elegant, more expensive hotel.
00:02:05 - 00:19:30
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.
Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is entering the NYSE, she has to go through a metal screener. When the security guards are using the wands on her, she spreads her arms, and you can then see some sort of horizontal line or wire sticking out from under her dress, around the waist. There also appears to be something above the wire, showing through the material. She seems to be wearing some sort of contraption under her dress, and when she moves, the entire object moves loosely. Possibly this is her microphone and attached wire?
Plot hole: After Carrie has her strenuous night with the 'fling', she is shown lying flat on her apartment floor in the morning, as if unable to move very much. But there is a cup of coffee next to her, obviously bought from somewhere in the city. Carrie is so disabled from her injury that when she reaches the church, she is hunched over, can barely walk, and Stanford has to help her along. She is affected a great deal from her 'sex sprain' during the entire wedding. So how is it that she was able to get up and go buy a cup of coffee outside of her apartment in the morning, when she was so injured she couldn't do much but lie flat on the floor when Charlotte called her? It doesn't seem likely that Carrie would have gone to all that effort to go out and buy coffee, when she is so immobile. She wasn't able to get around well enough for a small errand.
Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Aiden are arguing out on the street in front of her apartment, there is a shot of her holding the leash for Pete the dog in both hands. But suddenly as she is yelling at Aiden, you can see her throw both her hands up in the air and touch her head. She is not holding the leash at all. Then seconds later; there is a shot of her legs as Pete is running off, dragging the leash from her body and waist as if she is still holding it.
Character mistake: When Carrie is describing the younger guy she is dating, she claims he is the creator of an Internet magazine 'that she still wasn't able to find on her computer'; meaning she had searched the Internet for it. But as we learn later in the series, right before she gets back together with Aidan for the second time; she doesn't have the Internet on her computer until then. The girls talk her into getting it, in order to email Aidan. So there was no way she could have searched for the other guy's Internet magazine on her computer, as it was an older Mac laptop and not likely to have search engines without Internet access. She was only using the hard drive at that time.
