Days of Our Lives

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 11/26/03, there was dialogue from several characters indicating that the Thanksgiving celebration would take place later that day, i.e., that it was already Thanksgiving. However, when Thanksgiving actually started on 11/28/03, it was the morning of the following day.

Continuity mistake: On the 12/3/03 show at the end, someone puts their hand on Jennifer's shoulder and she turns around and says, 'Oh you.' When they replay the scene on the 12/4/03 show, she turns around and says, 'Ohhhh...Jack.'

Continuity mistake: The bathroom in Belle's penthouse underwent a bit of unexplained remodeling. In March of 2004, when Jan tried to electrocute Belle, Belle was taking a bath in a freestanding tub in the middle of the room. Later that year, after Philip had moved in, the bathroom had a regular shower and the room wasn't even large enough to have accomodated the tub we had seen before.

Continuity mistake: On 6/20/05, Bo and Billie talk about how they are going to look for their daughter Georgia via a website for "adopted children who have turned eighteen and are looking for their biological parents." However, Georgia was supposedly still sixteen in the fall of 2004, per Billie's statements, so she couldn't have been more than seventeen at the time this conversation happened.

Continuity mistake: On 4/16/04, Belle mentions that she felt particularly close to the late Alice Horton, because she "never had a grandmother in [her] life." But although she has never been seen on-screen, the show has always indicated that Marlena's mother was still living. Marlena has visited her parents in Colorado, and her son Eric is supposed to be living with them. Recently, Belle even made hot cocoa for her mother, saying that she would do it the same way as "Grandma Evans."

Continuity mistake: The nameplate on Kate Roberts' door was seen on 12/12/03, and it lists her job title as "editor in chief." But Basic Black is a fashion designer, and nothing about the company or Kate's job has ever involved a publication of any kind.

Continuity mistake: On 6/27/05, Bonnie referred to Mimi as her "youngest." But Bonnie has a son, Connor, who is younger than Mimi.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode on 6/5/07, Julie read Santo DiMera's letter, in which he declares a vendetta against the Brady family. She is translating the letter from Italian, and her husband Doug cuts in to say "Brady" and "Salem" when he was correctly able to guess what was written. On 6/6/07, at the beginning of the episode, the scene was repeated with Julie reading the letter. But this time, she read those words herself.

Continuity mistake: On 5/17/04, Jan removed her "Mrs. B." costume and revealed herself to Shawn. The camera was off her for a moment, and when it returned she was holding a wig and a prosthetic nose. But the wig was much darker than the powdered grey hair she had as Mrs. B., and removing the nose doesn't account from the elaborate facial makeup she had been wearing that completely vanished while the camera was on Shawn.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 12/9/03 episode, Bo receives a message on his PDA, and he and Hope see that it's Roman's obituary. The obituary appears again at the beginning of the 12/10/03 episode, but Bo and Hope act through a completely different scene leading up to it.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 12/30/03 episode, Kate and Roman cut the wedding cake, a red liquid seeps out, and Roman says, "Blood." At the beginning of the 12/31/03 episode, Kate and Roman cut the wedding cake, a red liquid seeps out, and Kate says, "Is that blood in the cake?"

Continuity mistake: On Thursday, 10/13/05, Belle saw Shawn and Mimi together on the roof. At the end of the episode, she was climbing down the ladder when her foot slipped and she appeared to fall. Belle was not seen on 10/14/05, and then at the beginning of the episode on 10/17/05, they showed a completely different scene where Belle was climbing down the ladder and her foot almost slipped from a rung, but she didn't loose her footing nearly as much as she had the first time these events were shown.

Continuity mistake: On 9/17/04, Patrick had very heavy stubble over most of his face the whole time he was hanging from the cliff. Then, after he fell into the river he was clean-shaven.

Continuity mistake: On 1/6/05, one of the police officers said that the paint on Bo's SUV matched the residue on the curb. However, Zack was hit just after he stepped out from between two parked cars. Therefore, there would have been no residue on the curb at the accident site.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 10/21/05, Hope referred to her son Zack as "Zachary Brady." But Zack's name isn't Zachary, it's used as a shorter version of Isaac. Zack's full name is "Beauregard Isaac Theo Brady."

Continuity mistake: Victor and Doug were both murdered on the night of Valentine's Day, which on the show lasted until the 3/11/04 episode. The next day started on 3/12/04, and turned out to be St. Patrick's Day when we saw Rex and Philip enjoying green beer at the Cheatin's Heart. We know that it was supposed to be the very next day, because characters talked about the murders that happened "last night." But the two holidays, shown here on sequential days, actually fall on February 14 and March 17, respectively.

Continuity mistake: When "John Black" was proven to be Roman Brady, DNA tests were used to prove he was really Roman with plastic surgery. Years later, after the real Roman Brady returned and John Black was once again John to prove who was Belle's father, all it took was a simple blood test; but years earlier, they had the same blood type.

Jack's Revenge

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 2/8/06, Abe Carver said that "two years ago," the recently deceased Zack had given him "the gift of being a father." But Zack, who was originally the Carvers' adopted son, was born in 2000, over five years previously. Perhaps Abe was thinking of his second son, Theo, who was born in 2003.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Ever since Bo and Billie learned that their supposedly stillborn daughter Georgia might be alive, they've repeatedly talked about how she would be sixteen years old now. When they received a package that supposedly contained Georgia's hair, it was labeled with a birth date of 5/22/9-, with the last digit hidden by Bo's thumb. But if Georgia was born in 1990 or later, she wouldn't even be fifteen yet.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In December of 2004, Bo and Billie flew to Europe at night to look for their daughter Georgia. On 12/3/04, it was shown to be daytime at the castle where Roman and Marlena were being held. Then, on 12/13/04, Bo and Billie arrived at the castle but it was dark outside. On 12/15/04, they were inside the castle and it was again full daylight outside. The whole time, it just got later and later on the same night in Salem.

Factual error: When Shawn is talking to Belle over the phone, the Eiffel Tower can be seen outside her window, yet, she's supposed to be in Milan, Italy.
