Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While Alan's sitting on the couch, Evelyn's talking to Alan "helping...through a very difficult time," and in the shots facing Alan all of the books on the table behind him, and also the books on the couch's side table keep changing - not just their position, all the books actually become different books. Additionally, in the shots facing Charlie, the books beside the chair and the books/CDs/DVDs on the bookcase change as well.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While Evelyn is at Charlie's asking Alan if he's considered that there may be another man at Judith's "shacking up with her," Evelyn is wearing a blue 2-piece skirt suit, but in Charlie's close-up Evelyn's wearing a white suit with a red floral pattern when she's standing in front of Charlie, at the left side of the screen. (In the original pilot Evelyn is played by Blythe Danner wearing the floral suit, but she had to back out and was replaced by Holland Taylor, who's wearing the blue suit).
