Continuity mistake: When Ryan is lighting Marissa's cigarette with his, at the start of the shot it's full, then the shot goes to Ryan and it's still full. But then the shot goes to Marissa and if you look at Ryan's cigarette you can see it is almost all gone. Then the shot goes to Ryan and the cigarette is full again.
Continuity mistake: When Marissa is dumped on the driveway by Summer and Holly, Ryan first sees her there her left arm is across her chest with her elbow sticking up. The next shot of Marissa her ams are straight and spread out, and the next they are close by her sides, which is impossible for her to have moved them herself as she is unconscious.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the first episode of Season 3, "The Aftermath", Ryan's hair is much shorter than it was at the last episode of season 2. Since they arrive at the hospital with a bleeding Trey, we know that this is right after Trey got shot. It doesnt make any sense that Ryan would go get a haircut right after Trey got shot and then go to the hospital with him.
Continuity mistake: Season 4 - Episode 8 - The Earth Girls Are Easy - When Kaitlin is at the party, talking to Bullit, her strand of hair changes from hanging over her eye to hanging down next to it, without her moving her hands or head to displace it.

Continuity mistake: When Kirsten and Ryan are talking while setting up for the Casino Night, the camera cuts between Ryan And Kirsten while they talk. Whenever you see both characters in one shot, her fringe is forward, but when you see the individual shot of her, her fringe is pulled back behind her ear.
Continuity mistake: In this episode Seth, Ryan and Kirsten arrive at the country club in the Range Rover to get the boys ready for Cotillion. In the next scene we see Sandy with the surfboards in the back of the Range Rover as he has just come home and Jimmy arrives to apologise, soon after we go back to the country club where Seth and Ryan are trying on jackets and meet up with Marissa, Summer and Luke, proving that the Range Rover should still be there, not back home.
Continuity mistake: At the part where Kirsten brings Ryan and Seth to help set up the hall, Seth starts to blow up balloons with helium. In one shot he has an orange balloon under his arm and is tying the bottom, and the next he's starting to fill up a different balloon, without time to finish tying it and pick up a new one.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the second episode of season 3, "The Shape of Things to Come," Summer, Marissa, Ryan and Seth are ordering pancakes at the restaurant. In this whole scene, Marissa's blue mug keeps changing position between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Marissa leaves the bar, after downing the pills and tequila, she leaves her bag, but presumably Ryan found it. Then, when Ryan sees Marissa down the alley he runs to her, but his hands are empty, yet, in the next shot, where he kneels over her body, Marissa's bag is in his hand and he puts it down beside her.
Continuity mistake: The posters on Seth's walls are different to the ones he had up when he left Newport. Since Seth has been in Portland all summer and not returned home, it's impossible for him to have changed them and extremely unlikely for Sandy or Kirsten to have either.
Continuity mistake: After Summer calls Seth and Ryan from the bathroom to say she's found Marissa, she puts her phone on the shelf, and then goes back into the main room to find Marissa gone. Then as Summer walks out the door she shoves her phone back into her bag, even though she left it on the shelf.
Continuity mistake: Season 4 Episode 5 The Sleeping Beauty: When Taylor calls Ryan in the middle of the night (around 03:03 when he first checks), the second time Ryan checks the time on his radio it shows 03:23, however it jumps back to 03:04 when he looks again.

Continuity mistake: When the camera is focusing on the pool at the hotel it slowly moves up and then we see Ryan and Seth walking down some stairs (in the upper left hand corner). We can see Ryan swinging his arms and he's not holding a drink, but in the next shot he's holding a drink.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Seth is eating in the Crab Shack and talking to Ryan, he's holding his drink but in the behind shot he's bringing the drink to his mouth but in the front shot it's resting on the bench and again in the back shot he's sipping the drink but in the front shot it's nowhere near his mouth.
Continuity mistake: At the start, Summer and Marissa are talking about the weekend. Summer says something like, "I'm going mad over Seth Cohen." The camera swaps from Summer and Marissa. We see Summer first with her hair in front of her ear, then when we cut back after seeing Marissa, Summer's hair has gone to behind her ear.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Kirsten and Ryan are sitting at the table. From the front you see Kirsten pick up her coffee cup. In the behind shot you see her put it down and in the next shot, which is from the front, the cup is still in her hand and she's putting it down again.
