Show generally

Factual error: (Season 4) During the episode where Ms. Grubman and Christian are talking in his office and he turns around a few seconds later to see she had died while in her wheelchair, her head and posture is still straight up and forward - near impossible. Common physics tells us that upon death, her head would have either drooped backward, downward, or to one of her sides.

Other mistake: In the episode "Conor McNamara", Mrs. Grubman is lying in the coffin. She noticeably swallows when she is supposed to be dead.

Revealing mistake: (Across Season 4) During several close-ups of baby Conor McNamara over various episodes in Season 4, you can see the off-colored slip-on "gloves" that are used to represent Conor's deformed hands.

Show generally

Other mistake: (Season 4, Episode 1) During the scene where the phone sex operator lady is having her voicebox operated on, you can see on at least three different occasions her eyes flinch and squint. Obviously, she was "awake" when this was filmed, but during a normal procedure such as this, she should be completely sedated and she would not be flinching her eyes.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the 5th season, episode 15, Christian is supposed to have several bruises and a broken clavicle, so he is wearing an arm sling when he is talking to Sean. After Colleen attacks Sean and locks them (Sean and her)in the office, Christian pushes the door. and when he finally opens it, sees Sean on the floor almost dead, In this scene he is not wearing the sling, and is moving the arm perfectly (when he's supposed to have a broken bone) and there are no bruises.

Other mistake: In episode 5-21: "Allegra Calderello," Allegra discusses with Shawn and Christian the fact that the show-within-a-show, "Hearts and Scalpels," featured a character based on her, called "pussy lips" because Allegra had her lips reconstructed with her labia. However, in episode 5-1: "Carly Summers," Shawn and Christian referred to their one-time patient as "pussy lips," but the network censors refused to air the word "pussy," and the euphemistic phrase "lady cha-cha" was used on the air instead. So Allegra would never have seen a character called "pussy lips."

Kimberly Henry: I don't understand this! I haven't heard form him since my operation. It thought that we were gonna be together.
Sean McNamara: Ms. Henry, I think you're confusing Dr. Troy's pleasant and very thorough bedside manner with real emotions.
Liz Winters: If it's any consolation to ya, honey, you're not the first girl he's done this to, but at least you got a good set of tits out of it, so heal in more ways than one and just go on with your life.
