Anchors away - S5-E1

Corrected entry: When the girls are walking down the street after eating, they all decide to go shopping downtown. Only Miranda says, "I forgot the Snuggly", implying that she can't go shopping with them. So Samantha rushes her off in a taxi. But in reality, this doesn't make sense. Miranda has already been out with Brady for hours, eating with the girls in a restaurant and then walking with him in NYC. So why would he suddenly need his 'Snuggly' to go shopping? If he was fine with all the activity before that, there is no reason he wouldn't have continued to be fine while shopping. (00:05:25)

Correction: Babies tire easily and are comforted by routine. If Miranda had already "been out with Brady for hours", it's likely that he would have been ready for a nap. Having the Snuggly would have enabled Miranda to continue her day with the girls, while also allowing Brady to snuggle up and have that nap. Also, we cannot assume, based on just what was shown, that "he was fine with all the activity before that". We have no way of knowing that.

Unoriginal sin - S5-E2

Corrected entry: At the end of Season 4 after Aiden moves out, Carrie has the hole in her bedroom wall fixed, and repaints that wall an olive green color to match the others. (Season 4, Episode 18, at: 1:18.) But in this episode, when Carrie is in her bedroom going through her newspaper columns, you can see that this same wall is suddenly painted a light pink color. It hasn't been very long since she just painted the wall olive green again, so why would she suddenly repaint just that one wall light pink? Why would she repaint the same wall again twice, that quickly? (00:12:50)

Correction: Carrie painted the wall olive green in season 4, episode 18. After which at some point, she reconsidered her choice and painted the wall pink, by the time we see it in season 5, episode 2. Even if she changed her mind and repainted her wall a dozen times between that time span, it is her choice to make, and we needn't see it onscreen. It's only a mistake if it suddenly reverts back to the olive colour between shots.

People don't normally paint their bedroom walls more than once, in a short period of time. Or paint them 'a dozen times'. It is unusual to paint a wall a new color, and then suddenly repaint it a different color a short time later.

Cover girl - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Charlotte throws her book out the window, it lands at the feet of a woman who according to Carrie's voiceover, 'had been contemplating a divorce', meaning she was still married. Yet when you can see her left hand as she bends down to pick up the book, there isn't a visible wedding ring. There wasn't one on her right hand either. (00:12:20)

Correction: If the woman was considering a divorce, her marriage was clearly not in a good way. It is not unusual for someone to stop wearing their wedding ring before a divorce is final.

I love a charade - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Charlotte and Harry are dancing at the wedding reception, he tells Charlotte that he 'has to marry a Jew'. We later learn it was a promise he made to his now deceased mother. But we also know that Harry has been married before, as he told Charlotte he lived in the bachelor pad when he was going through his own divorce. His first wife must have been a Jewish woman, since he feels he has to marry a Jew and promised it to his mother. So Harry has already married a Jew, fulfilling his promise to his mother. The promise wouldn't likely extend to two wives! So his telling Charlotte that he has to 'marry a Jew' doesn't make logical sense for his character, since he has already been married to a Jew, and it wouldn't matter what religion his second wife would be. (00:27:35)

Correction: Yes maybe. I took the promise as "when I marry, I'll marry a Jewish woman." Obviously his mother didn't intend on having Harry divorce. He can interpret it how he likes.

Plus one is the loneliest number - S5-E5

Corrected entry: When Bunny walks in on Charlotte at her apartment, they are talking in the hallway. Bunny holds up her hand, and there is a close-up of a large metal bunny key chain. This is symbolic, of course, of the character 'Bunny'. (00:14:35)

Correction: Since the shot is a close-up, and we're all well aware of the character's name, this is too obvious to be considered trivia.

No, it isn't too obvious to be considered trivia. I had not noticed the bunny symbolism with the key chain at all, until it was pointed out in the DVD commentary. Others probably did not either, as it was not that obvious. Therefore, this was an interesting 'easter egg' trivia.

The big journey - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode when Carrie and Samantha go to San Francisco there is a scene when Samantha is in the bath. She stands up and her front is covered in bubbles, when she gets out the bath you can see in the mirror behind her that she is wearing a red bra and knickers set. Why bother covering up, when viewers have seen much more of her than her backside in the past?

Correction: I just watched that episode and all I could see was a tanline.

Plus one is the loneliest number - S5-E5

Corrected entry: As Carrie and Berger are sitting on a park bench talking, there is a bag of fast food between them that disappears when they get up to leave. Carrie is holding her shake as they walk away, but neither of them is carrying the bag.

Correction: If you watch closely, while they are sitting and talking, Berger grabs the bag and throws it away in the trash can behind him in one arm motion. You don't see the bag on screen either but you see his arm motion grab the bag and move across his body to the trash can behind him. That is why, when they get up the bag is no longer on the bench.
