Love, Daisies and Troubadours - S1-E21

New this week Continuity mistake: When Lorelai tries to remember the name of the guy who used to run the auto-body shop, she opens the kitchen's back door in the interior shot, but in the next exterior shot Lorelai is walking out of the side living room door, with the window beside it. (00:06:15)

Emily In Wonderland - S1-E19

New this week Continuity mistake: At Luke's, when Rachel shows Lorelai the photo of the Dragonfly Inn, Rachel says, "It's an old abandoned inn I ran across when I was exploring the other day." So Rachel took the photograph in the last few days, and in the photo the Dragonfly does not have shutters, and does not have a sign hanging over the porch, etc. When Lorelai visits the Dragonfly with Rachel and then with Rory, the shutters and sign have appeared, as well as other changes. (00:04:50 - 00:40:20)

The Third Lorelai - S1-E18

New this week Continuity mistake: At the start, during dinner things on the sideboard move between wideshots and closeups of Rory. Fun to note: when Emily gets up and follows Richard to his seat, as Emily shouts to Siri that Mr. Gilmore is hungry, the camera pans a bit to the left and a water bottle (it's gone in Rory's closeups) has been placed on the sideboard, beside the sterling bud vase, which would cause Emily to have a fit. Obviously one of the actors or the crew left it there.

The Breakup, Part 2 - S1-E17

New this week Continuity mistake: When Babette walks through the kitchen's back door to comfort Rory, the porch is visible with its lattice wall and doorknob is to the right, but when Lorelai walks out with Babette in the exterior shot the wall has changed and the doorknob is to the left. The exterior shot looks like the area outside the side living room door, not the kitchen door. (00:19:00)

Forgiveness and Stuff - S1-E10

New this week Visible crew/equipment: When Lorelai and Dean are talking through Rory's open window, Lorelai tells Dean that they have a nice front door he might want to use, and when Dean walks away the moving boom pole can be seen through the top of the glass window, in front of the lattice.

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

New this week Other mistake: After Lane goes home, when Rory watches her mom talking to Max note the short window over the kitchen sink behind Rory (not the tall window on the same wall). In the next shot, from outside that short window, we see Rory pull the photo strip out of her pocket then proceed to walk to that window and stand directly in front of it. The problem is there should be a sink and cabinets under that window blocking Rory from standing beside the window. (00:43:05)

(00:39:45)
