Continuity mistake: When Lorelai and Luke are in Luke's Diner to choose the color for the walls, Luke turns around the 'closed'-sign on the door. In this shot the venetian blind at the door is quite messed-up; partly closed, partly opened. In the following shot, where all the people are standing outside Luke's Diner looking through the windows, the venetian blind is orderly and completely opened.
Continuity mistake: When Luke knocks on the kitchen door (at the back of the house) and calls Lorelai out to talk on the back porch, Lorelai grabs the doorknob to go out that door, but in the very next shot from outside Lorelai is actually walking out of the side living room door which is at the side of the house while Luke is standing there. Two completely different doors, at different sides of the house, and the back porch is not connected to the side/front porch. (00:06:10)
Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Dean brings pizza and they are discussing about Donna Reed, in one shot Lorelai is opening the pizza box and she and Rory take a piece and start eating while they are talking. In the following shot, the piece of pizza in Lorelai's hand is gone and Rory takes a piece from the box - you can see that the pizza is complete again.
Visible crew/equipment: When Rory gets the photo album from her mother's bedroom and shows her grandparents, just as Emily reminds Richard about getting the baby dress in London, a piece of filming equipment can be seen at the right side of the screen. (00:27:25)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Lorelai is in Luke's Diner talking to Luke. Lorelai is wearing a red sweater vest over a white blouse. When Luke is behind the counter, every time the camera faces Lorelai, the left side of her blouse goes from being tucked in under the vest (as if the vest were hastily put on), to being untucked (as it should be) quite a few times.
Continuity mistake: After Rory is walking with Dean, it goes to a shot of Rory and Lorelai eating at Luke's Diner from outside. Rory is wearing a light blue sweater and Lorelai has a black shirt on. Then it goes inside the diner and Rory is wearing a dark bluish/grey sweater and Lorelai is wearing a purple shirt. The first exterior shot is used from the very last scene of the episode. (00:27:05)
Continuity mistake: Lorelai and Sookie take some containers out of the car and head towards Emily and Richard's door. When you see the next shot of them at the door, the containers Sookie is carrying are different from the ones she took out of the car, without her rearranging them.
Other mistake: Rory asks Emily for baby pictures of Lorelai, but Emily says Lorelai burned them all because she had such a big head when she was little. But in "Love and War and Snow" earlier in the season, Emily, Richard and Rory looked at a baby picture of Lorelai in a bunch of petticoats the night Rory stayed over with her grandparents during a snowstorm.
