The big time - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Mr. Big is leaning against the boat rail talking to Carrie, you can see that he is not wearing a wedding ring on his left hand. This seems odd, since he just got married again. And wouldn't Natasha notice that he wasn't wearing his wedding ring as a Newlywed? (00:13:35)

Correction: Maybe he took it off because it made him feel guilty or he just was not used to wearing it yet. Plenty of married people (men and women) don't wear wedding rings for a variety of reasons.

Correction: Given that 'John Thomas' is a common nickname for male genitals and that Mr. Thomas was also DP for episodes where they didn't use the term, yes, it's probably just a coincidence.

Old dogs, new dicks - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Steve and Miranda sleep together in the morning and she is wearing the turquoise nightgown, she gets up from bed and stands in the doorway talking to Steve and you can see she has white underwear on underneath the nightgown. They had just had sex so she didn't have time to put on underwear.

Correction: It is possible to have sex and not take your panties off.

Cover girl - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Charlotte throws her book out the window, it lands at the feet of a woman who according to Carrie's voiceover, 'had been contemplating a divorce', meaning she was still married. Yet when you can see her left hand as she bends down to pick up the book, there isn't a visible wedding ring. There wasn't one on her right hand either. (00:12:20)

Correction: If the woman was considering a divorce, her marriage was clearly not in a good way. It is not unusual for someone to stop wearing their wedding ring before a divorce is final.

I love a charade - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Charlotte and Harry are dancing at the wedding reception, he tells Charlotte that he 'has to marry a Jew'. We later learn it was a promise he made to his now deceased mother. But we also know that Harry has been married before, as he told Charlotte he lived in the bachelor pad when he was going through his own divorce. His first wife must have been a Jewish woman, since he feels he has to marry a Jew and promised it to his mother. So Harry has already married a Jew, fulfilling his promise to his mother. The promise wouldn't likely extend to two wives! So his telling Charlotte that he has to 'marry a Jew' doesn't make logical sense for his character, since he has already been married to a Jew, and it wouldn't matter what religion his second wife would be. (00:27:35)

Correction: Yes maybe. I took the promise as "when I marry, I'll marry a Jewish woman." Obviously his mother didn't intend on having Harry divorce. He can interpret it how he likes.

All that glitters - S4-E14

Corrected entry: At the end when Carrie and Aidan are lying in bed, she is watching her snow globe and the glitter inside is moving around. That is impossible to happen without it being shaken up first. The swirling snow globe is meant to be significant but it's still a mistake.

Correction: I just saw this episode. And when Carrie is laying in bed with Aiden looking at the swirling snow globe, I had the distinct impression she was staring at it because she had probably just hopped out of bed to shake it up. Aiden was probably asleep, and she being hyper probably just was happy and decided to shake it up so she could look at it. This is part of the symbolism of why she was staring at it, since she had just stirred things up again both with the snow globe, and with her relationship with Aiden.

Ring a ding ding - S4-E16

Corrected entry: After Charlotte gives Carrie her engagement ring for the down payment on her co-op, wouldn't Carrie still have to qualify for a mortgage loan? It would have made more sense if she had asked one of her more well-to-do friends to co-sign the loan for her. It wouldn't cost them anything (unless Carrie defaulted, of course) and it would explain how she managed to buy a New York co-op with $1600 worth of assets.

Correction: The assumption here, is that Charlotte is giving Carrie a ring that is worth around $30,000 for her down payment. Not $1600. (It's a VERY large diamond, Trey was exceedingly wealthy). It would still be difficult to sell, but in NYC it's possible Carrie would get a high selling price from the right jeweler. Carrie had to either buy (meaning at least come up with a down payment) or vacate her apartment within 30 days. Since she is now able to afford the $30,000 down payment (the necessary amount was shown on Big's check); than we could reasonably assume Carrie would then qualify for the rest. All she has to do now, is make monthly payments that are probably not much more than her current rent was.

Let there be light - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Carrie wakes up at Aleksander's house and he's not there, we can see her hair is curled. When she arrived at the apartment, and also when she leaves (to look for him in his studio), her hair is straightened.

Correction: There is no continuity error. Carrie straightened her hair before going over to Aleksander's house, for her 'look'. Then since her hair is naturally curly, it went back to that state while she was sleeping (and with moisture in the air). Then, there is an implied amount of time after she wakes up, and before she goes to leave, that she took a shower, straightened her hair again, etc. In essence, getting her 'look' ready for the day.

Great sexpectations - S6-E2

Corrected entry: Before Berger passes out on Carrie's bed, he takes off his jacket and sports coat, and even begins unbuttoning his shirt. When the 2 wake up in the morning, Berger's shirt is buttoned up, and his sports jacket is back on. I don't know about you, but when I pass out I don't wake up to put clothes back on.

Ral0618

Correction: Berger never takes his jacket or shirt off. He starts to, but it only makes it to his shoulder. He is dressed when he falls asleep.

Correction: So she left her phone at the restaurant. If she used that cell phone just after leaving it, that would be a mistake, but as such it's simply a character mistake, not a 'movie' mistake.

Correction: That is false. You can not see a mirror above the bed at all.

Escape from new york - S3-E13

Corrected entry: Charlotte is worried that Trey's inability to perform in bed is physiological, and is relieved to learn that he can have an erection. In a previous episode she gave him a hand job, so she should already know that he can get it up.

Correction: In fact, believe it or not, it is possible for a man to be manually masturbated to orgasm by a sexual partner without achieving an erection - hence Charlotte's concern.

Correction: It's psychological, Trey was performing fine (the hand job) until they got married, and then he admitted he saw her as his wife, a pure being, and couldn't achieve an erection.

Correction: I have watched this scene, and the black and white dress is there the entire time. Sometimes the shot is from a different angle, where you can't see the closet or the dress hanging, but that's just the angle of the camera (aimed toward her living room). In the shots of her closet, the dress is always there.

Show generally

Corrected entry: During the open credits we see the bus splashing Carrie has her poster on it. Her head on the poster is facing the left of the screen, but in the Season One episode where the bus makes its debut the poster is reversed, with Carries head on the right side.

Correction: The newspaper ad people reversed the picture. Not unusual.

The domino effect - S6-E11

Corrected entry: When Charlotte has her first visit to Dr. Mao's, the switch for the relaxing music is positioned right above the light switch in the treatment room, next to the door. At her next visit, you can hear the clicking sound as Dr. Mao turns the music on, but there's no switch on the wall.

Correction: Charlotte could be in a different treatment room where the switch is in a different spot.

Splat! - S6-E18

Corrected entry: Carrie claims to have never tasted espresso before when Petrovsky buys her a machine, but in Season 1 episode 3 ("Bay of married pigs") she is having lunch with some married friends, and they set her up with a friend. They get on well, and the voiceover says "two espressos and a tiramisu later" and we see Carrie drinking her espresso.

Correction: Carrie never says that she hasn't tasted espresso before, she just seems unfamiliar with it throughout the episode. If she hasn't had it in five years, this is completely normal.

I heart ny - S4-E18

Corrected entry: At Brady's birth Steve counts to five fingers, five toes and two balls. He wouldn't be able to tell: boy babies are born with their testicles still inside their body.

Correction: He was probably saying it tongue-in-cheek. Not entirely seriously. Because Steve only has one ball, (and he sees this as a fault and a really big deal) he's pleased that his son, Brady is 'normal'.

The big journey - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode when Carrie and Samantha go to San Francisco there is a scene when Samantha is in the bath. She stands up and her front is covered in bubbles, when she gets out the bath you can see in the mirror behind her that she is wearing a red bra and knickers set. Why bother covering up, when viewers have seen much more of her than her backside in the past?

Correction: I just watched that episode and all I could see was a tanline.

Correction: Carrie just holds up the pink shoe to try it on in her size. We don't see her buy the pink ones, so it's reasonable to think that she changed her mind on the color before leaving the store.

Ral0618

Correction: Carrie was dating Aidan for almost a year; he could have given it to her, even though she herself didn't have an email address. He, also, has a business. She could have looked up his business on the internet and got his email there.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.

Samantha: There isn't enough wall space in New York City to hang all of my exes. Let me tell you, a lot of them were hung.
