Desperate Housewives

Come Play Wiz Me - S3-E13

Other mistake: Lynette is talking to Susan about Zach's infatuation with Gaby. Susan asks how Zach can afford so many expensive gifts for Gaby, to which Lynette replies that he inherited his grandfather's money when he "turned 18, a month ago." However, in the previous episode, Zach reminds Gabrielle that he is two months older than John Rowland, who, it was mentioned, turned 18 in season 1, two years before.

Getting Married Today - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: Gabby's hair in the beginning has her bun high on her head and her tiara is visible from the front. When Bree walks in, and when she overhears Victor and his father talking, her tiara is farther back on her head and no longer visible from the front.


Bang - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Nora dies, Lynette stands up and strokes her hand over her chin, so a little blood stays on her chin. During the yelling scene of Lynette towards Carolyn, the blood on her chin changes constantly between shots.

Season 3 generally

Continuity mistake: Susan's house is burned down by Edie towards the end of season 2, but at the beginning of season 3 the house is exactly as is back to normal and as it was before the fire.

Like It Was - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Bree is talking to Vera about Andrew and her husband, Vera is holding a nearly empty glass of tea. She then fills the glass to the top, but when she picks up the glass after doing so, it's nearly empty again.

Children and Art - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Lynette and Tom are waiting for their kids at the bus stop, the bus that drops off their boys says "Briarcliff Academy." The boys actually go to Barcliff Academy.

Bang - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carolyn shoots Lynette, Lynette is wearing high heels when she is originally shot. But when Lynette falls into Art's arms, she is wearing shoes without heels.

It Takes Two - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While preparing for Bree's wedding, Susan is seen wearing full hair curlers for the entire day, yet on the day of the wedding, her hair is straight without a single curl.

Dress Big - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene, Ian starts to pour his mother some wine, but in the very next shot, he starts to pour it again.

Sweetheart, I Have to Confess - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: During the scene with Tom and Nora in the pizza parlour, a wine bottle and a glass are knocked over in an argument. When they pan back to the table as Nora is leaving, the full bottle and the glass are back on the table.

Silly People - S2-E14

Carlos: You know who you are, Gaby? You're the kind of person who would have turned away Mary and Joseph from the inn.
Gabrielle: Well, they should have called ahead.
