Dear Emily and Richard - S3-E13

Corrected entry: The book that Emily sends to Lorelai and Rory about Europe is dated 1986, however Rory was born in 1984, therefore the book cannot be the book that Lorelai was reading the day that Rory was conceived.

Correction: The book that Lorelai and Christopher were reading when Rory was conceived was dated 1978. The one dated 1986 was briefly mentioned beforehand.

Those Are Strings, Pinocchio - S3-E22

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?

Correction: Actually, early in the show's run, Dean uses the word "sisters" when giving Rory the details about his family. We only ever see one sister, but that would presumably be because the other is older and no longer lives with her parents.

They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They? - S3-E7

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. (01:00:00)

Correction: It never says what time it is when they get the sandwiches. It could have been at night.

Take the Deviled Eggs... - S3-E6

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.

Correction: Actually if you look carefully, after the black woman, Gail, has popped the popper and smiled to Sherry she turns around and takes a plate from the table. In the next shot she's shown she looks like she's sitting down to the sofa. So there isn't any actual mistake here since between these shots there is plenty of time for her to walk round the sofa.

One's Got Class and the Other One Dyes - S3-E4

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.

Correction: Lane actually buys the hair dye the day before. Notice that Rory is wearing her Chilton uniform and Shane has on a brown shirt. The next day, when Rory goes back to buy the black dye, she is in jeans and Shane has on a purple shirt. This takes place after Luke and Lorelai have left for the school. So, there was plenty of time for Shane to leave Jess's closet and go to work.

That'll Do, Pig - S3-E10

Corrected entry: When Emily is at Lorelai's home and Lorelai arrives in the car, the sun is not shining. When she gets inside the house moments later, the sun is shining.

Correction: There could have been clouds covering the sun and when Lorelai got in the house the clouds could have left.

Dear Emily and Richard - S3-E13

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.

Correction: Cell phones are allowed in maternity wards.
