Boy, girl, boy, girl - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Miranda drops the paper bags on the floor a lettuce and a bottle of water fall out. Seconds later the stuff changes completely: The bottle is gone, the bags are in a different position and, best of all, Miranda's leather bag (which was previously hanging on her shoulder and suddenly disappeared between shots -listed mistake-) magically reappears on top of the mess.

To market, to market - S6-E1

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.
