If The Shoe Fits... - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Gabby is looking for cooking utensils while Xena is sitting there playing with the leaf, Gabby's hair is markably different than in the rest of the episode.

This may have been an insert shot done later, as Renee O'Conner did cut her hair for an episode done just a few weeks later. (00:19:30)
