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.

Revealing mistake: On 9/23/03, Theresa was in the closet talking to herself about Gwen and her baby. She very obviously flubs the word "because," pronouncing it more like "bikyiz."

Other mistake: On 10/19/06, Rebecca tells Gwen she paid off the bellhop to lie, since Ethan was right behind her and JT the entire chase, she couldn't have had time to do anything but run.

Show generally

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.

Plot hole: When Gwen and Ethan were getting ready to go to Los Angeles, Gwen told Ethan that she wanted to stay in Harmony until they knew that Kay (Ethan's half-sister who he barely knew until two years ago) and her baby were out of the woods. Once that happened, they left, without any concern at all for Sheridan (Gwen's lifelong best friend and the woman Ethan thought was his aunt for twenty years), even though she was still missing.

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.

Plot hole: On 11/29/03, Ivy tries to cook Thanksgiving dinner, and the turkey explodes. Comedic value aside, if the turkey was going to explode then it would have happened while cooking, and even that would have been highly implausible. It makes no sense at all for the turkey to explode after being pulled from the oven, when prodded with a spoon.

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.

Plot hole: On 6/14/05, Ned and Fancy left Las Vegas by plane and traveled to Harmony. It was already dark when they left, which in June would mean that it must have been after 8pm at the absolute earliest. They arrived in Harmony later the same night. Harmony is in Maine, so by the time they got there, it would have been at least 2am (three hours travel time plus three hours time difference). However, after they had gotten home, Pilar was telling Paloma to come home before midnight, meaning that it was supposed to be much earlier than it could possibly have been at that point.

DavidK93

Show generally

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.

Show generally

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.

Show generally

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.

Show generally

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.

Revealing mistake: On 12/26/03, Ethan tells Woody that he doesn't want people to know that they're there together. But throughout their conversation, Ethan constantly turns directly towards Woody and speaks with him quite loudly. Woody is practically hanging out of his seat as he leans towards Ethan. Every couple of scenes, Ethan reiterates the need for discretion, but neither of them does anything about it. It's really not that hard to talk out the side of your mouth while sitting back to back.

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.

Plot hole: On 11/28/03, the Russells arrived home from LA. Inexplicably, they all enter the house separately. Eve is shown arriving alone. Later, Whitney is hanging up her coat. Finally, TC eventually is seen in the house without having been shown coming in the door. But they all came home from the aiport at the same time, and nobody was ever shown doing anything that would delay them, such as gathering luggage.

Jessica Bennett: You can't give up on Charity, Miguel. Would Leonardo give up on Kate? Would Ross give up on Rachel? Would Bo give up on Hope?
