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.

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.

The Fundamental Things Apply - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Lorelai is in Luke's Diner talking to Luke. Lorelai is wearing a red sweater vest over a white blouse. When Luke is behind the counter, every time the camera faces Lorelai, the left side of her blouse goes from being tucked in under the vest (as if the vest were hastily put on), to being untucked (as it should be) quite a few times.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Rory is walking with Dean, it goes to a shot of Rory and Lorelai eating at Luke's Diner from outside. Rory is wearing a light blue sweater and Lorelai has a black shirt on. Then it goes inside the diner and Rory is wearing a dark bluish/grey sweater and Lorelai is wearing a purple shirt. The first exterior shot is used from the very last scene of the episode. (00:27:05)

An Affair to Remember - S4-E6

The Incredible Sinking Lorelais - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: Dean calls Rory, and towards the end of the conversation mentions getting his first cell phone. This is false. He's had a cell phone the whole series. Paris even calls it in the season 2 episode "Can't Get Started" when Rory and Dean are at Sookie's wedding.

Cinnamon's Wake - S1-E5

The Fundamental Things Apply - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Rory comes into the room to answer the phone and sees Paris avoiding the call because it's her boyfriend Jamie, she empties the contents of her school bag onto the desk, including her mobile phone. Then later in the scene when Rory suggests Paris use her mobile phone to call Jamie, she pulls it out of her bag again, despite having left it on the table all but half a minute earlier.
