Ted Koppel's Big Night Out - S4-E9

Factual error: Lorelei and Jason go to dinner after the Yale vs Harvard game. When the dinner is a bust, they go to the supermarket. Wine bottles can be seen as they enter the supermarket. Hard liquor and wine are not sold in supermarkets in Connecticut. Up until a few years ago, alcohol could not be purchased on Sunday or after 9 PM.

Here Comes the Son - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Luke knocks on the kitchen door (at the back of the house) and calls Lorelai out to talk on the back porch, Lorelai grabs the doorknob to go out that door, but in the very next shot from outside Lorelai is actually walking out of the side living room door which is at the side of the house while Luke is standing there. Two completely different doors, at different sides of the house, and the back porch is not connected to the side/front porch. (00:06:10)

That Damn Donna Reed - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Lorelai and Luke are in Luke's Diner to choose the color for the walls, Luke turns around the 'closed'-sign on the door. In this shot the venetian blind at the door is quite messed-up; partly closed, partly opened. In the following shot, where all the people are standing outside Luke's Diner looking through the windows, the venetian blind is orderly and completely opened.

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Rory is dropped off in the morning after spending the night with her grandparents, she walks from the car to the porch where Lorelai is standing, but even though it's snowing there aren't any snowflakes anywhere on Rory. (00:39:10)

Lorelai Out of Water - S3-E12

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the episode Rory and Lorelai are about to open the garage door. You can see a crew member in the reflection of the glass moving his arms around the camera - you can also slightly see his head for a split second. (00:39:00)

That Damn Donna Reed - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Dean brings pizza and they are discussing about Donna Reed, in one shot Lorelai is opening the pizza box and she and Rory take a piece and start eating while they are talking.

Trivia: In some episodes, Rory speaks Spanish (e.g when she is talking to her grandmother's maid). She speaks very poorly, typical "school-Spanish". This is just acting; Spanish is actually Alexis Bledel's first language. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Argentina.
