Sex and the City

Cover girl - S5-E4

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. (00:17:45)

Anchors away - S5-E1

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. (00:04:20)

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Charlotte and Carrie are sitting at a table outside, there is a woman with a long brown leather coat walking by. Shortly afterwards the same woman with the long brown leather coat walks by again. (00:08:20)

The big journey - S5-E7

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. (00:07:00)

Critical condition - S5-E6

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. (00:25:30)

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)

Luck be an old lady - S5-E3

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. (00:16:50)

Anchors away - S5-E1

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. (00:17:40)

Luck be an old lady - S5-E3

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)
