Continuity mistake: Throughout December, 2004, Luis and Sheridan talked about how their wedding would be the day after Christmas. Then, during the several episodes that took place on Christmas Eve, there was a Christmas tree lighting and the characters went to midnight mass. After that, Luis and Sheirdan went to bed together on 12/27/04 and woke up together on 12/28/04, and it was their wedding day, when it should instead have been Christmas Day, the day before their wedding.

Continuity mistake: On 9/27/99, in LA, Henry gives Chad a newspaper that was left in his family's apartment when Chad was abandoned at age eight. It is a Harmony Herald. Then we see Theresa and Whitney walking in front of a Harmony Herald newspaper box in Harmony, and the paper is identical to the one that Chad's family left behind about a decade earlier.

Continuity mistake: On 7/19/05, Luis mentions his and Sheridan's past life in ancient Egypt. The viewers know about this past life, because Tabitha told Timmy about it. However, unlike their past lives on the Titanic and in 19th century America, which they experienced firsthand, Luis and Sheridan themselves never learned about their past life as Antony and Cleopatra.

Continuity mistake: The week of 12/8/03, Child Protective Services took Little Ethan from Theresa. As one would expect, she became hysterically upset. But after her son was gone, Theresa calmed down enough to call the police station and Luis' cell phone, all while speaking and acting completely rationally. When she realized that everybody was at Sarah's funeral with their cell phones off, she decided to go there. Inexplicably, by the time she got there, she was completely hysterical again.

Continuity mistake: On 10/6/03, Theresa called home to talk to her mother Pilar and her son Ethan. Ethan, born in the summer of 2002, had not been seen on the show for a little while, and was now much older than previously. He was about two or three years old.

Continuity mistake: Whitney and Fox scooped Little Ethan out of bed, and carried him out of the bedroom wearing his pajamas. But after church they brought him to Theresa's house, and he was wearing dress clothes. Fox and Whitney's clothes were different, too.

Continuity mistake: On 7/12/04, Sheridan has a repressed memory of herself with bloody hands, holding a bloody letter opener. She tells Luis that, although she has had these nightmares before, this is the first time she saw the letter opener and realized that it was where the blood came from. But we saw Sheridan's nightmares many times between 1999 and 2001, and the letter opener had always been there.

Continuity mistake: On 5/17/04, when we saw Pilar's hospital room, the people there were different from the people shown there when we last saw the room on 5/14/04, even though the action was continuous. Kay, Charity, and Baby Maria were all in the room with the Lopez-Fitzgeralds when Father Lonigan announced that they were going to begin praying on 5/14. On 5/17, they began the prayer, but the two young women and the baby were gone, while Whitney and Chad had suddenly appeared in the room.

Continuity mistake: The show is woefully inconsistent in regards to when conversations can and cannot be overheard. Tabitha, Ivy, Kay, and Liz all routinely eavesdrop through closed plate-glass windows. On the other hand, Whitney could not hear Chad and LaToya speaking through an open doorway. Also, years ago, Ethan somehow couldn't hear Theresa talking to Pilar about her love for him even though he was standing on the landing directly above them. To contrast, Days Of Our Lives has managed to avoid such egregious discrepancies.

Continuity mistake: Theresa arrives in LA the same day as Ethan. That night he accidentally crawls into bed with her. The next day they all wake up and discover Ethan in bed with Theresa. At one point (in the same episode) characters refer to what happened between Ethan and Theresa and state that it happened the night before. At another point characters refer to what happened and state that it happened a few days ago.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 9/10/03 episode, the song "Number 1 Crush" is about halfway through when Theresa removes Fox's shirt as they dance seductively. At the beginning of the 9/11/03 episode, the scene is replayed just as the song starts, but Fox is already shirtless.

Continuity mistake: On March 10 and 11, 2004, a group of characters sings an original song, "Shugga Shugga Shugga," on the stage of the Blue Note. The song plays as background through numerous scenes, and lasts for more than twenty minutes. But the same two or three verses were simply played over and over again. In fact, the song is available on the show's website, and is not even five minutes long.

Continuity mistake: On 7/4/05, it was late at night and Alistair had just kissed Theresa. Pilar was warning her to stay away from him. Theresa was wearing a black, sleeveless dress, and Pilar was wearing a blue blouse and a matching light jacket. On 7/5/05, it was morning, which made sense because the characters had been saying through the past several episodes that it was almost morning. Theresa and Pilar were in the middle of the same conversation, unmoved from their previous location in front of the Crane mansion, but Theresa was wearing a white blouse with a floral print and Pilar's outfit was black.

Continuity mistake: On 3/21/05, at the end of the episode, Whitney went into labor literally the moment Ethan saw Fox pull out of the driveway in his car. At the beginning of the episode on 3/22/05, it didn't happen until Fox was well on his way to the airport.

Continuity mistake: During January 2005, Sheridan gets attached to a stuffed bear that her mother gave her as a child. At one point, Sheridan is sleeping and has the bear with her in bed. She then proceeds to start sleepwalking and leaves the bear in her bed and then leaves her house. Later that evening, her mother enters the bedroom looking for Sheridan and the stuffed bear has somehow managed to move to a chair across the room.

Continuity mistake: On 12/2/03, Theresa went for a walk on the wharf with her son Ethan Martin, who appeared to be four or five years old. Ethan had been seen two months earlier, at which time he was two or three years old.

Continuity mistake: On 9/22/03, when Nicole first appeared, there was a close-up of her while she was talking to Fox, and she stepped down into the swimming pool (We heard the splashes and she moved downwards.). In the wide shot that immediately followed, Nicole was back on the concrete at the edge of the pool, and she again stepped down onto the first step in the water.

Continuity mistake: Early in the life of the show, around late 1999, Tabitha said that Charity would gain her full powers if she lost her virginity, and that those powers would be a thousand times stronger if she lost it to Miguel. Now, on 1/22/04, Tabitha says that Charity will only become a threat if she makes love to Miguel, and not if she has sex with someone else. Evidently, she won't come into her powers at all unless she loses her virginity to Miguel specifically.

Continuity mistake: On 11/7/03, Antonio finally realizes that Luis and Sheridan are in love and he has a series of rapid flashbacks of compromising situations in which he has caught them. One of those scenes is when Antonio almost saw Luis and Sheridan cuddling post-coitally in Sheridan's bedroom, but "luckily" went temporarily blind an instant before he looked in the window. So why could he see them together in his flashback?

Continuity mistake: In July of 1999, Luis tried to convince Pilar to divorce Martin or have him declared dead, so that she could remove his name from the deed on their house in order to refinance. However, later flashbacks showed that the Lopez-Fitzgerald family lived in a cottage on the Crane grounds at the time of Martin's disappearance, which means that Martin's name wouldn't be on the deed of the house the family later moved into.

Continuity mistake: Did any one else notice that Sheridan gave birth without ever taking off her pants?
