Suggested correction: Tony and others say many things that aren't accurate. While season one gives the firm impression that the house is sold, it's not confirmed on screen. There may have been a deal where the intended buyer couldn't get financing or a closing never took place for other reasons.

Knight in White Satin Armor - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Janice is trying on her wedding gown with Carmela, her tattoo is gone. However, in all the other shots, her tattoo is above her cleavage line, between her boobs. It's nowhere to be seen in the wedding dress shots.

Suggested correction: Actually, her tattoo is visible. The style of the wedding dress she had on was obviously chosen for the way that it NEARLY covered up the tattoo. It is easily seen if your eyes are not glued to her cleavage near the 19 minute mark.

Sorry. There is no way her tattoo is covered up. I looked at the prior engagement party scene and jumped to the wedding dress, this is an error. There is no covering it up.

The tattoo is there and it is definitely covered up. Look at her right boob, not left, since we are seeing a reflection of her in the mirror, and you'll find that tattoo all right.

Suggested correction: Actually there is more than one shot where you can't see the tattoo at all. It depends on the angle. In most shots the top of the tattoo is always visible and in others it's not at all.

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Plot hole: In the scene where the FBI plays the tape to Tony and reveals the conspiracy between his mother and Junior, it is stated that the bugs were placed at Green Grove. However, the second conversation played in the sequence actually took place outside a movie theater the episode prior, which would not have been recorded as part of the Green Grove surveillance. The conversation involves Livia telling Junior that Tony reminded her of her cousin Kiki after she had her lobotomy.

Suggested correction: Some of the recording came from Green Grove. Some came from surveillance while Junior and Livia were in line for the theatre. The FBI didn't have to present all the facts and details and truth to Tony. That is only important in court.

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Tony's hair length alternates between a short buzz cut and longer in different shots in the scene where Sil, Paulie and Chris visit him after his mother dies.

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When the shrink locks the door on Tony, they argue and she calls the police. When she finally calms down she approaches the door to unlock it but you can see the door move before she ever sticks a key in it or touches the knob. (00:25:20)

All Happy Families... - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: Tony, Carmela and AJ are meeting with AJ's college tutor. Partway through the meeting AJ is asked to leave. When AJ stands up he is wearing beige coloured trousers, but as the shot changes to show him walking out the door, he is now wearing black trousers. (00:15:30)

Big Girls Don't Cry - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: Right at the beginning of the episode, Chris pulls over in front of the Bahama Skies tanning salon to pick up his pay. The shot shows him in the car. As he exits the vehicle, the cameraman can be briefly seen in the reflection.

No-Show - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When Patsy knocks down the black guy with the iron pole, the pole breaks in half like a piece of plastic. When it cuts, the pole is intact.

Mortug

Another Toothpick - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bacala is telling Uncle Jun about his father and the accident, Uncle Junior gets angry and starts throwing things around, he is wearing glasses. You can see that in between throwing one of the items, he is not wearing his glasses, then he is wearing them again.

Isabella - S1-E12

Factual error: During Tony's assassination attempt he struggles with one of the "hit men" for control of a pistol. One can see that the pistol does not contain a magazine.This would limit the shooter to 1 shot, providing the pistol is not equipped with a "magazine disconnect" if it is than it can not be fired at all. It seems unlikely that a "hit man" would be so ill prepared.

Pie-O-My - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: A different horse is used for close-ups and race shots; you can tell by looking at the white patch on Pie-O-My's head, which is much bigger in the close-ups.

Mayham - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Paulie Walnuts is talking to Tony in the hospital room, the close up of the heart monitor shows the heart rate in highlighted text, with the word "Tachycardia" flashing. In the shot from Paulie's point of view, the heart rate is in normal text and "Tachycardia" is not flashing.

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: You know where I was yesterday when you called?.. I was outside a whorehouse, while a guy that works for me was inside beating the shit out of a guy that owes me money. Broke his arm. Put a bullet in his kneecap.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: How'd that make you feel?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Wished it was me in there.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: Giving the beating or taking it?

Trivia: Whenever the mobsters in the Sopranos pay they almost always take a wad of cash out of their pocket and pull off the top 3-4 bills and hand it over. If Tony is paying for a pizza he pulls off 3-4 bills. If he's bribing someone he pulls off 3-4 bills. No matter what the amount is for that particular situation, it's always covered with the top 3-4 bills of the cash wad.

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Question: In the credits a character is shown as "2 to 5 / 7 to 9". Who is this character and what is the significance of her name?

Answer: I'm not sure which person you're referring to here specifically, but the meaning is someone who makes a habit of constantly going to funeral calling hours (normally 2pm-5pm and 7pm to 9pm) for morbid entertainment or gossip purposes (elderly ladies, for example).

Ryan Grubb

Answer: In "Proshai, Livushka", she's the person talking to Meadow in the hall, while Tony watches, and says to Meadow, "I'm so sorry about your grandmother." She also appears and is credited in s03e05, "Another Toothpick" and s03e13, "Army of One." In s06e18 "Kennedy and Heidi", one of Tony's men points her out (although refers to her as 3 to 5, 7 to 9) and when someone asks why they call her that, he says "she never misses a wake." Although in this episode, Marie Donato is not credited.
