Catch-38 - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: There's a scene that opens with Carrie and her boyfriend in his apartment, and he's sitting with baby Brady on his lap. The camera cuts to another angle, and it's very obviously a different baby.

Boy, interrupted - S6-E10

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.

Hop, skip, and a week - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When Carrie knocks the vase of carnations off the table, the flowers scatter all over the room, but in the close up shot of the table, there are still a bunch on the table, and on the floor around the base.

Catch-38 - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Carrie and Charlotte are at the park, Carrie has a black and white cookie that keeps changing position in her hands with each shot of her. First the chocolate side close to her, then away, then close again, etc.

The ick factor - S6-E14

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. (00:20:20)

Lights, camera, relationship - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Carrie are arguing in the street, Jack stretches out his arms widely asking for a hug. Carrie starts walking towards him, but in the very next shot suddenly Jack's arms are down by his sides. (00:23:35)

Hop, skip, and a week - S6-E6

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. (00:19:30)

Splat! - S6-E18

Plot hole: Elizabeth Taylor is "gang banged" at the park by a number of dogs of different breeds. Yet the puppies that she has are all King Charles Spaniels just like their mother.

A woman's right to shoes (a.k.a. no shoes, no service) - S6-E9

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. (00:12:55)

Hop, skip, and a week - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When Carrie knocks the vase to the floor, it rolls away and settles beside the leg of her couch. In the next shot, it's lying on the floor next to the table she knocked it from.

The catch - S6-E8

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. (00:16:45)

An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

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. (00:28:30)

An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: Both of Harry's hands are on the table, but in the next shot his left hand (with his wristwatch) is up, then in the next shot both are back down. He then raises his right hand while his left hand remains on the table. (00:20:10)

An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

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. (00:09:40)

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

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.

The catch - S6-E8

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. (00:16:45)

The one - S6-E12

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. (00:22:20)

The one - S6-E12

Other mistake: Miranda's bathroom looks suspiciously the same as Carrie's with the two door exit and tiles and windows when Samantha pulls her into the bathroom.

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

Trivia: Carrie is the only main character who never appears nude (she is either dressed or covered by something). Sarah Jessica Parker had a strict "no nudity" clause in her contract.

Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women - S2-E17

Question: I have a somewhat odd question for everyone that watches Sex and the city. I got into the show about 2 or 3 years after it started running but I remember watching the episode "Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women" which was the episode about Carrie and the girls going to the Hamptons and renting a house. Charlotte dates a younger guy that gives her crabs. There is commentary about comparing 20 year girls to 30 year old women and when I watched this episode originally I swear there was a different ending then what is what is shown now. I want to know if anyone else has seen this or am I absolutely insane. In the episode there is a girl that pukes on the beach - her friend holds her hair back and Carrie makes a commentary about "counting on 20 year old girls to hold your hair back." Later when Carrie sees Big with Natasha she runs to the beach and Miranda runs after her. Carrie throws up because she is upset and Miranda holds her hair back, but the version I saw changes the commentary/narration and says that you can "always count on a 30 something year old friend to hold your hair back." I haven't seen that version again. Has anyone else seen it or did I just dream this, because I swear I remember watching this when it first came out?

Weeny Post

Answer: I'm a long-time fan of the show, having re-watched it many times, and I definitely remember slightly different dialogue at the end of that episode than what's on my DVD. I'm afraid I have no idea why this change might have been made or any other info, but you're not insane.
