Fraud Alert - S5-E19

Other mistake: Julia receives a late night call from a credit card company with a Fraud Alert. Julia identified herself as Julia. The rep on the phone referred to her as Mrs. Braverman. The rep has no way of knowing if she is married or not. And, given the fact that she referred Julia as Mrs. Braverman, the rep might have inquired if her husband has access to the card.

Suggested correction: Individuals using the term "Ms." or "Mrs." doesn't indicated they think a woman is married or unmarried. I regularly address any female teacher as "Ms.", even if I know they're married. But I know others who use "Mrs." for any teacher, even if they know the teacher is unmarried.

Suggested correction: A credit card company would have a card-holder's marital status on file from his/her application. Credit card companies also have any authorized user (s) on file, so would know her husband was not an authorized user (if that's the case).

Help Wanted - S2-E20

Other mistake: Rory is seated on the front steps of Dean's house. A car pulls up to the curb. Dean gets out of the passenger side of the car. But we didn't see, is anyone get out of the driver side or going into the house. I am assuming that Dean's mother or father picked him up. If that's the case, then why didn't they pull into the driveway? Had he used a car service, he most likely would not have been seated in the front seat.

Suggested correction: Someone does get out of the car. They even say hi to Rory.

Winter - S1-E1

Other mistake: Luke and Lorelai are talking in the diner. Lorelai asks Luke if he ever wanted a fresh kid. Lorelai then says to him "you'll never get to go to your kid's graduation." Are we to believe that Luke didn't go to April's high school and college graduations?

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (2) - S6-E26

Other mistake: Charles has just brought Adam a letter to the site of the blind school rebuild. When Adam is told that his father died, he and Mary walk away from Charles. The terrain was very uneven. Being blind they realistically wouldn't be able to navigate it without stumbling.

Those Are Strings, Pinocchio - S3-E22

Stupidity: Richard, an insurance man drove Rory's Prius graduation gift to Chilton. The car wasn't insured, and presumably wasn't registered. An insurance man who is anal about following procedure drove an unregistered and uninsured vehicle? Richard wouldn't do it. Plus, Richard should have mentioned transferring the title to Rory. Can't insure it until it's in her name.

Twenty-One Is the Loneliest Number - S6-E7

Other mistake: Though I love the 21st birthday at the casino plan, it's flawed. Rory will not be able to play blackjack until she is 21. She can't be playing when she turns 21. Casinos, to the best of my knowledge, won't let you on the gaming floor unless you are 21. She has to turn 21 first.

Always a Godmother, Never a God - S6-E4

Stupidity: Rory arrives in Star's Hollow for the baptism. She parks presumably near the church. When she gets out of the car, she does not have a purse or car keys in hand. She apparently left the car unlocked and left the keys in it. It's just plain dumb.

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1) - S7-E1

Stupidity: Charles and Caroline are dancing at the church social. Charles makes a comment about Laura getting married. Caroline responds with "I'm just dying to call you Grandpa." Mary's son just died. Charles has already been a grandfather. That comment was beyond insensitive, and just plain stupid as written. She should've said, I can't wait to call you Grandpa again.

The Big One - S3-E16

Other mistake: Headmaster Charleston called Rory to discuss the speech contest. His secretary conferenced in Paris. When Headmaster Charleston hung up, the connection between Rory and Paris should have been severed. They were both connected to him, not to each other.

To See The Light (1) - S7-E10

Stupidity: When Adam recovers from the accident that restored his sight, one of the first things that he wants to do is take a drive with his wife. He lost his sight as a young boy. I doubt that he could handle a rig without being shown how. Would you trust him?

Santa's Secret Stuff - S7-E11

Stupidity: Lorelai finishes her character reference letter for Luke. She takes it out of the typewriter and immediately folds it. She did not sign it. I wonder why a judge accepted a reference letter that wasn't signed.

Twenty-One Is the Loneliest Number - S6-E7

Other mistake: After Emily goes to the pool house on the pretence of looking for a blouse, she asks Logan about plans for Rory's birthday. Later, Emily and Richard talk. Emily suspects that Rory is ready to have relations with Logan. She says that she caught them getting cozy on the couch. Emily didn't catch them doing anything. There was no way for Emily to see inside. Both Logan and Rory got off the sofa to answer the door. Emily didn't see anything. And, Logan told Emily that he had no plans for where his birthday. He knows that Emily is planning a party, yet he offered to take Rory away for her birthday. Emily would've been devastated.

Say Something - S5-E14

Other mistake: Lorelai is in bed post breakup. Rory returns from running errands for her. She comes upstairs with Frank who is carrying the television. Frank puts down the television and leaves. When Rory leaves, Lorelei turns on the TV. No one plugged it in or hooked up the cable, assuming that cable is installed in her bedroom (which is extremely doubtful). Lorelai would not have been able to flip through channels as she did.

Norman Mailer, I'm Pregnant! - S5-E6

Stupidity: Luke arrives at Lorelai's house. He comments that she left her car light on. Lorelai then tells him that she left it on because the porch light is out. He says that the battery is going to die. She tells him that she has it timed out perfectly. She then says that there will be 2 hours to spare and that the car has all day to charge. Cars don't charge unless they are running. Is she really going to run it all day? Why didn't Luke point out the error in her logic? Doing so is staying true to the character. The oversight is glaring.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the original show we are led to believe that Lorelei lost her virginity to Christopher. But in this, during the late night gathering outside after the funeral, Lorelei's story about her father was about her losing her virginity to someone who wasn't Christopher. She got pregnant at the age of 16. We are to assume that she did not sleep with anyone immediately after Christopher. If the above is true, she didn't get pregnant when she lost her virginity. If she didn't get pregnant then she should've been safe with Christopher. What did the above were true, we would have heard about it. She would have told her daughter about how she lost her virginity.

The UnGraduate - S6-E3

Character mistake: While Rory is on the phone discussing a DAR application, Emily enters. Rory asks the caller to hold, but she doesn't hit a button to put the call on hold. She put down the receiver disconnecting the call. Then she forgets that she has someone on hold.

Wedding Bell Blues - S5-E13

Trivia: During the quickly improvised bachelorette party for Emily, Lorelei and Rory talk about the Sheldrakes, the people who were bumped so Emily and Richard could get the Rose Room. The Sheldrakes are a nod to Kelly Bishop's role in the movie Dirty Dancing. The hotel where Johnny Castle and partner performed was called the Sheldrake.

Women of Questionable Morals - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Rory goes to see her father after Strobe dies, she brings a paper bag with cookies. Christopher comments "and milk", even though the bag was creased. He couldn't see into the bag because the bag is closed.

Richard in Stars Hollow - S2-E12

Other mistake: Paris was looking to find the seedy side of Stars Hollow. Inside of Luke's she hid behind a menu commenting that she wanted to blend in. She then asked Luke if he gets a lot of truckers. We have all seen the exterior of Luke's and the town square. Paris has walked through it. Where, would a big rig possibly fit or park? Paris is extremely intelligent. She would not have asked the question. Doing so was totally out of character.

The Third Miracle - S6-E4

Other mistake: After the stagecoach crashes and Mary discovers that neither Marge nor Adam can move, she tells Adam that she's going to leave the canteen for him and Marge. Neither one can move. Neither one is going to get the canteen to the other.
