Love at First Slight - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end Laurie is in the kitchen with her mom and Keith. She tells Keith the boyfriends of the girls who were chasing him are at the door. Her hair is down. Keith runs out of the door and she hollers after him. When they cut back her hair is in a ponytail.

This is My Song - S1-E11

Other mistake: The Partridge family is suppose to be famous, but they never seem to play to more than a small handful of people in some lounge.
