How Green Was My Grass - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: Before this episode (and after as well) Darrin and Samantha give their address as 1164 Morning Glory Circle, however in this episode, when Darrin slams the door, the '9' in 192 on their address spins around to make 162, hence the angry neighbor at 162 saying that his grass was installed at the Stevens' by mistake.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In more than one episode the Steven's front door changes. In some shots the door is solid paneled but in other shots the door has a half circle window at the top. It seems the window usually appears in close up shots of people talking.

Samantha Goes South for a Spell - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: The minute hand on the teakettle clock is between the 6 and the 7 when it's shown behind Samantha. When she goes to the closet, the clock reads 8:15 (minute hand on the 3). When she returns, the minute hand is between the 6 and the 7 again. (00:02:20)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early shows, the door between the dining room and kitchen is a swinging door with louvers. In later shows there is a regular sized door with partial louvers. However, after this change, there are a couple of episodes within the same season, where the regular sized louver door is a solid door with no louvers.

Accidental Twins - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The doorknob on the nursery room door is on the right side of the door whether it's viewed from outside or inside the room. It should be on the left side in one of the views and the right side in the other. (00:07:00)

The Trial and Error of Aunt Clara - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Samantha opens the door, you can see the 3 pictures by the door. The middle picture is straight. When the camera cuts to Samantha and Aunt Clara and returns to Larry at the door, the middle picture is crooked... a necessary plot point to distract Larry from the desk in the stair case.

Toys in Babeland - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In Tabitha's room in an early scene, Tabitha for some reason is in her play pen in her bedroom rather than her crib as usual. Later, the crib is back when Darrin is securing her toys in the locked toy chest.

Santa Comes to Visit and Stays and Stays - S6-E14

Plot hole: Mrs. Kravitz, while standing in the Stephenses' front doorway, sees Santa Claus and assumes that it's Darrin in costume. However, the very next shot shows Santa exiting the kitchen (around the corner from the front door) and starting up the hallway toward the living room. There is no possible way Mrs. Kravitz could have seen him when she said she did. (00:09:30)

Darrin Stephens: Sam, don't expect your mother to be gracious. She doesn't do imitations.

Show generally

Question: In one episode (not sure which one but it was in the Dick York era), Darrin was arguing with Samantha and said something like "Confiding in a woman is like broadcasting by Telstar." What exactly does that mean and what was Telstar?

Answer: Telstar was an early communications satellite system. Darrin, in a particularly sexist manner reflective of this era, is saying that telling a secret to a woman means it is guaranteed to be "broadcasted" to multiple people.
