Downtown Crossing (2) - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking to the Mugger in the hospital room, every time they show her sitting down in her chair or getting up from it the chair looks like it is quite far from the bed, down past the foot of the bed, about 10 feet or so from the guy. But all the other shots she appears to be sitting much closer, only a few feet away from his face.

Hotel New Hampshire - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Joey finds Dawson at Pacey's Pier Party, it is raining heavily. Both Dawson and Joey get soaked and their hair is very wet as they reunite and kiss. At this point, it suddenly stops raining and does not rain again the rest of the time at the pier. But later, when Jen and Abby are talking behind them, both times Dawson and Joey are shown from the rear their hair is noticeably dry, wavy and styled. Later, when Dawson and Joey are talking again before she goes home, their hair is once again very wet and combed flat against their heads. Also, neither Jen or Abby's hair appeared wet at all during the party.

Full Moon Rising - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Pacey is at Andie's house waiting for their date, he picks up a family photo of the entire McPhee family. There is a close-up of this photo, and you can see all family members including Andie's dead brother, Tim, and her father. In addition to the Father in the photo not being actor David Dukes, there is a completely different person in the photo representing Tim, the dead brother, than the actor who portrayed him in Andie's delusions later in the season. The person in the photo is sandy blond haired, and the actor who later portrayed him in the show was a different person with very dark hair.

The Scare (aka Friday the 13th) - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Pacey drives Joey and Dawson to the market to get party supplies, they leave in broad daylight. It can't be more than a few minutes down the road, being such a small town. Yet as they drive there, the sun is suddenly going down, and when they arrive at the store it's dark and night time. It couldn't have gone from broad daylight to dark night time in that short period of time. It appears to be a very long drive, but it's just the local market.

Reunited - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Joey and Dawson are in the rowboat after their dinner date, they are kissing and talking. Just before Joey says, "OK, that's enough, Jumbo," there is a shot of them from the rear and Joey has her left hand up around the back of Dawson's neck, scrunching his hair. The very next shot shows them from the front again, and suddenly both of Joey's hands are down nowhere near Dawson's neck. The transition was too fast for her to have moved her hand.

Full Moon Rising - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Pacey is at Andie's house waiting for their date, he picks up a family photo of the entire McPhee family. There is a close-up of this photo, and you can see all family members including Andie's dead brother, Tim, and her father. Look closely at the man representing her father in the photo. It is not David Dukes, the actor who later plays her father. Apparently this scene was shot/photo made before David Dukes was available.

None of the Above - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: After Dawson and Eve check his locker to see if the PSAT test was returned, they then start talking in the hallway next to his locker. Just as Eve says "Tell me who you think it is", there is a shot of her from the rear as she turns around to face Dawson with her arms crossed in front of her, and down by her sides. The next shot of Eve is from the front, as she says "Whoever you were just thinking of"; and suddenly her arms are at an angle away from her sides with her hands on her hips. Then the next shot of Eve is from the rear, and again her arms are straight and back down close to her sides as she says "It is". Then the next shot of Eve, again from the front shows her arms back out at an angle again with her hands on her hips as she says "Simple and obvious". There was no time for her to have moved her arms and hands during this scene, the transition was too fast. Apparently the shots of Eve from the front, and from the rear during this scene were filmed at two different times.

Catch-22 - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking to Eddie in her dorm room, she is facing him with her hands resting firmly on his shoulders.

Her hands haven't moved, and no-one touched her hair.

High Anxiety - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking to Pacey at the boat party, she turns to face him. At this point, her hair is behind her shoulder on the left but the wind blows it in front of her right shoulder. Her hair is in front of her right shoulder during this entire shot. But in the next shot, she is suddenly facing Pacey square on to the camera, and her hair is now back behind both shoulders. The transition is almost instantaneous, so it isn't realistic that her hair would suddenly move from in front of her right shoulder to behind it that quickly without her touching it.

Four to Tango - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jen walks into the Video Store, she is wearing a black top, red skirt and a black leather jacket that is completely open and unbuttoned. As she talks to Dawson, who is behind the counter, she says, "I'm working on a project with Pacey in a 'human growth and development' thing - is he here?" She is standing up, but leaning slightly forward against the counter and her coat is still widely open. But the next shot of Jen, as she says, "But he told me that he was working today," the black leather jacket is suddenly closed together as if buttoned, and she is leaning foward more on the counter. Then, after Dawson walks over to the movie rack and Jen follows him, her jacket is again hanging completely open and unbuttoned.

Mistakes

At the end of the episode, Dawson is seated in the kitchen talking to Pacey in a normally loud voice. At the same time, Joey and Charlie are awake and talking in the pup tent in the living room, very close to the kitchen. Later in the Season we learn that Joey had no idea Dawson had driven down to Florida to see her, as apparently he left without seeing or talking to her. But being in such close proximity that morning; there is no way Joey would not have been able to hear Dawson's voice as he talked with Pacey. The living room was close enough to the kitchen, so it doesn't make sense that Joey wouldn't have known Dawson was there and if she did-she would have gone to talk to him.
