Make Me Lose Control - S2-E3

Let It Be - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Meredith puts the Hello Kitty plaster on her forehead in her car, she puts it on upside-down. When she reaches the elevator it is now on the right way up (it is unlikely she would have removed it just to place it back on the right way up.) In addition when she is in the elevator, from shot to shot the position of her fringe (and how much of it covers the plaster) keeps changing. (00:01:50 - 00:02:55)
