The Fundamental Things Apply - S4-E5

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.

An Affair to Remember - S4-E6

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.

The Incredible Sinking Lorelais - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: Dean calls Rory, and towards the end of the conversation mentions getting his first cell phone. This is false. He's had a cell phone the whole series. Paris even calls it in the season 2 episode "Can't Get Started" when Rory and Dean are at Sookie's wedding.

The Fundamental Things Apply - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Rory comes into the room to answer the phone and sees Paris avoiding the call because it's her boyfriend Jamie, she empties the contents of her school bag onto the desk, including her mobile phone. Then later in the scene when Rory suggests Paris use her mobile phone to call Jamie, she pulls it out of her bag again, despite having left it on the table all but half a minute earlier.

The Reigning Lorelai - S4-E16

Plot hole: When Emily is dialing a number for Manny Martelli, to make arrangements for the funeral, she only dials two digits. She just got the number from someone else, so there's no way it was speed-dial.

Luke Can See Her Face - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When Paris and Rory are at the hospital talking about Asher, Rory suggests getting something to drink so they both walk away from Asher's room, and just as Paris says, "Vanilla, it's a very old flavor," their yellow tape mark can be seen on floor at the bottom right corner of the screen, which is where they were standing.

The Fundamental Things Apply - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: While Lorelai and Michel are at the diner Luke tells Lorelai to take Michel elsewhere, and when Luke goes behind the counter his shirt is perfectly dry in this wideshot and following closeup. but in the next wideshot, as Lorelai tries to get Luke's attention, we now see a round wet spot on Luke's back, but the problem is Lorelai has not yet tossed the lemon wedge at Luke's back that causes the wet spot on his shirt. Lorelai tosses the lemon wedge about ten shots later. (00:07:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Sookie takes Lorelai out to the shed because Jackson doesn't want to know the sex of the baby, just as Sookie opens up the doors the hand of a crew member can be seen at the lower right side of the screen, stopping the moving door. (00:12:20)

It is also mentioned in the last episode of the season when Lorelai puts her parents in room 12. (00:04:10)
