The O.C.

The Distance - S2-E1

Factual error: Julie picks up Marissa's iPod and presses the menu button, and Marissa acts as though the song has stopped, when pressing the menu button wouldn't do anything to the song - all that would do is have the playlist come up on the screen.

The Distance - S2-E1

Factual error: In the first episode of season two you see Teresa with Ryan, yet she has no bump. Season one ends at the end of the school term and season two starts off just before the school term. Therefore there's been about two and a half months of school holiday plus the time between her sleeping with Ryan and discovering she's pregnant and Ryan leaving for Chino with her - therefore she should be showing some signs of pregnancy in early season two.

The Mallpisode - S2-E15

Factual error: How exactly does Seth unlock the door? The entire purpose of locking the storeroom is to keep mall customers out so they won't steal things, not to keep people in there, so there is no way it was only lockable from the outside. If it was a key operated lock, why would someone just leave their key in the keyhole for someone to take? There is no explanation for Seth being able to unlock the door.

The SnO.C. - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In Series 2, Episode 'The SnOC', we see Zach punching Seth with his right fist. However, when Summer gives him some ice, he covers his left fist with it (which is now bruised and swollen).

Marissa: It will be fun.
Summer: What's more fun than watching a neurotic freak bat his eyes at perfect pixie chick?
Marissa: I was being sarcastic.
Summer: So was I. Which neither one of us was before Cohen came along and taught us all irony... Jackass.

The Blaze of Glory - S2-E16

Question: When Ryan goes to Marissa and Alex's apartment (after Alex told him to stay away from Marissa), he says, "If you have to work this hard, it isn't working." What does he mean?

Answer: He means that if Alex has to go so far as to forbid Ryan from seeing Marissa in order to maintain her relationship with her, their relationship obviously isn't working.
