The agony and the 'ex'tasy - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Carrie is showering after being stood up at her party she is not wearing mascara as she stands with her face under the water, then as she opens the curtain to talk to Charlotte again there is no mascara. She puts her hands briefly over her eyes and when she takes them away, mascara is visible all over her eyes and cheeks.

Plot hole: In the closing scene in Big's car, he asks Carrie how her birthday was, then says, "So how old are you?" She replies, "How old are you?" And they coyly don't reveal their "age box." But they have known each other for 3 years/seasons at this point - dated on/off for 2 years, had an affair, and are just friends now. There is no way they wouldn't know each other's ages. This exchange only existed to benefit the plot of this episode - it makes no sense given how long they've known each other.

The real me - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: As the group are discussing Samantha's nude photos in the restaurant, a salad Miranda has ordered arrives at the table. Just after Carrie says "that we know of" you can see the waitress place both the salad and a ramekin of dressing onto the table from behind Miranda. The shot then cuts to the front and the waitress is shown putting the ramekin down for the second time.

The real me - S4-E2

Character mistake: Miranda, Charlotte and Carrie are sitting in the cafe waiting for Samantha, when she runs in late, armed with her photos. Just before she'd arrived, a waitress had come to take their order - Carrie ordered a drink but nobody ordered food, but when Samantha offers the photos to look at Miranda says something like "But only till the food arrives." They didn't order any food.

Suggested correction: It's pretty clear that Miranda meant till the food arrives after they order; they were waiting for Samantha to arrive first to order.

Charlotte: How can you forget a guy you've slept with?
Carrie: Toto, I don't think we're in single digits anymore.
