Corrected entry: In episode 1, Lorelai says, "Sookie, please, I am begging you, please, pull yourself together, OK? I got no sleep last night and I think I put my contacts in backwards." In this episode, Rachel asks her if she wears contacts, and she says that she does not.
Corrected entry: In season 1, episode 7 (Kiss and Tell), Lorelei tells Rory to go to the bathroom so it won't look like they were coming back to the living room (where Dean was) together. Rory opens the door in the small hallway leading from the kitchen to the living room and goes in. We assume it's the bathroom. Then in this episode, Rory tells Lorelei to get rid of a box in which she had put all of the things that reminded her of Dean. Lorelei agrees but when she leaves Rory's room she goes to the same place in the hallway where the bathroom presumably was and opens the door to reveal a coat closet, not a bathroom. It's the only door there. This space is confirmed as the coat closet in "Love, Daisies and Troubadours" when Rory finds the Dean box.
Corrected entry: Lorelai is in Luke's Diner talking to Luke. Lorelai is wearing a red sweater vest over a white shirt. Everytime the camera goes back to her, the left side of her collar 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.
Corrected entry: When Sherry and Lorelai have their awkward talk in the kitchen, Lorelai is reaching to bring out glasses for apple juice. She places one on the counter and reaches for a second. In the next shot, as she is setting down the glass she has just retrieved, a second glass has already appeared on the counter.
Corrected entry: In Episode 5 of Season 1 entitled, "Cinnamon's Wake", Kirk did not know who Miss Patty was. He said "I wasn't aware that you were THE Miss Patty." Later in the series, in Episode 5 of Season 6, at Miss Patty's Grand Recital, Miss Patty introduces Kirk's performance and says that he was "a talented pupil of mine". His performance was titled, "20 Years Ago Today", therefore Kirk was a student and should have known who Miss Patty was all along.
Corrected entry: Season 6 - Episode 7 ("Twenty-One is the Loneliest Number"): Rory is talking to Logan at her birthday party about how the reverend talked to her about her virginity being a gift. She says that Logan's got that gift now, but that's not true - she lost her virginity to Dean, not to Logan.
Corrected entry: In the episode "That Damn Donna Reed" (1.14), Lorelai suggests that Richard and Emily go to Paris instead of taking their usual trip to Martha's Vineyard. Richard and Emily are strongly opposed to this because they only go to Europe every two years and only in the Fall. Emily feels so adamant that Fall is the appropriate time to visit Europe that she references Fall four times within a thirty-five second period (6:30-7:05). However, in "Emily in Wonderland" (1.19), when Emily meets Michel for the first time they share a brief exchange in French: Emily: Enchantée. D'où venez vous? Michel: Paris. Emily: J'adore Paris. Nous y allons chaque printemps. This translates to: Emily: Charmed [in response to meeting Michel]. Where do you come from? Michel: Paris. Emily: I adore Paris. We go there every Spring. This thoroughly contradicts going to Europe every two years and only in the Fall
Corrected entry: In the episode in which Rory graduates from Chilton, she was talking to Dean, early in the episode. He said he has a nephew who was going to be the ring bearer in his wedding. But, Dean only has one sister and at the time, she was only about 10 years old. Maybe 12, but not old enough to have a three year old son. And, never, in any other episode, does Dean have or mention another sibling. How could he possibly have a nephew?
Corrected entry: This whole episode is based on a 24 hour dance contest. When we see Lorelie and Rory going it is 5:30 in the morning and dark. It stays dark the whole day, and you know this because when Jess and Shayne show up he goes and gets a sandwich which is at noon but it is still dark out.
Corrected entry: When Lorelai wants to go into the market Rory asks if it is Wednesday, since that is the only day she knows Dean doesn't work, and Lorelai says no. The next day, when Lorelai picks up Rory, someone says something about seeing them tomorrow. Their dinners are always on Fridays, it must therefore be Thursday, and the market conversation took place on Wednesday and Lorelai was wrong.
Corrected entry: Miss Patty wakes up Dean and Rory at the dance studio and tells them it's 5:30 AM. When Rory runs home through the snowy streets, it's quite light out. But at no time during winter in the northeast is it light at 5:30 AM. In reality, she'd be running home in complete darkness.
Corrected entry: At Sherry's baby shower, Lorelai and Sherry made a remark about having men carry them around like princesses. Then Lorelai gets alarmed at the guest popping party poppers, and in the next shot two women are standing up - away from the couch, popping some. The black woman, in a cream sweater, pops a popper, but in the next shot, she is sitting down on the couch.
Corrected entry: As Lorelai and Luke are leaving his apartment after she made him change his shirt when they're going to talk at the school, she tells him that Jess has a girl in the closet. Jess later confirms that it's true and that the girl is Shane. At the same time Shane is working at the beauty shop, selling hair dye to Lane. We see her both before and after she's supposed to be in the closet (since Lane freaks out and dyes her hair back to black), so there's no way she could have got off work and gone over to Jess after.
Corrected entry: When Rory orders Indian food, they say it is going to take 40 minutes. After that Paris arrives, Rory agrees to help her, and she changes her clothes. Just before Jess shows up, Rory says to Paris that her hour is up. The Indian food still hasn't come, and we only ever see them eat the food Jess brought. Deliveries can be late, but after over 20 additional minutes you would think someone would comment on it.
Corrected entry: Rory's age throughout season 1 is slightly strange. In "Pilot", Lorelai tells the guys at Luke's that Rory is 16 and five episodes later ("Rory's Birthday Parties"), Rory celebrates her birthday. This would therefore make her now 17. However, in the episode "Christopher Returns" Rory tells Straub that she is 16 years old, which would either make Rory 15 in "Pilot" or not turn a year older in "Rory's Birthday Parties"
Corrected entry: Just when Rory is cutting the cake at her second birthday party, her grandparents arrive. Sookie is the one to bring in the cake, we don't see her leave the room, and if she did she would meet Richard and Emily on the way. But when Lorelei enters the kitchen a little later, Sookie is there and is surprised to hear that they have come, even she was seemingly in the room when they entered.
Corrected entry: In this episode, Sherry is giving birth to Georgia and Rory is the only one there with her at the beginning of her pre-delivery status. Sherry is freaking out about work and needs to reschedule all her appointments, so she and Rory do it using a mobile phone. Anyone whose ever been to a hospital or even watched an episode of E.R. would know that mobile phones are not allowed to be used in hospitals. The nurse in the scene even talks to Sherry while Rory is talking on Sherry's mobile phone for her, so it's not as if the staff didn't know about it.
