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. (00:39:00)
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: 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: 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: 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.
