The O.C.

FOX (ended 2007)




  • Season 1 Episode 27: The Ties That Bind

  • Kirsten and Julie mention Caleb's black eye, but in the episode "The Strip," it is shown and mentioned that Jimmy punched Caleb in the mouth, not the eye.

  • In this episode, we learn that Kirsten once had an abortion.

  • When Ryan leaves Newport, he is wearing the same outfit he arrived in one year before. He also watches Marissa at the end of her driveway as he did the first time he left Newport. It's kind of like a flashback.

  • In the Pilot episode, while saying goodbye, Seth gave Ryan a map of the Pacific Ocean. Symbolically, In The Ties That Bind, while saying goodbye again, Ryan returned Seth his map.

  • Goof: There would be no valid contract between Marissa and Caleb because Marissa would have a legal defense to that contract. Her defense would be coercion.

  • Goof: When Theresa is in the poolhouse getting ready to leave for work, she is seen putting her right earing in (she was not wearing a left earing). When Kirsten comes into the poolhouse, the shot changes right back to Theresa, who is now wearing a left earing, while trying to put in the right one again.

  • Goof: When Ryan walks into Seth's room towards the end of the episode, Seth takes off his earbuds and picks up his portable music player. In the next shot, however, the music player magically disappears from Seth's hands, and is only slightly visible on his lap.

  • Goof: Why is Marissa still moving in with her mother and Caleb?
    One would think that once Jimmy cashes Caleb's money, Caleb could not get it back. It is unlikely that Marissa feels morally compelled to remain where she is miserable. Why would she not just leave? Caleb would not be able to sue Marissa for breach of verbal contract, as she is a minor.

  • Season 1 Episode 26: The Strip

  • Kirsten asks Hailey if she could manage a stripper to be at Julie's bachelor party. She adds that Hailey should have good contacts because she was a stripper herself.

    In episode "22 The L.A.", however, Jimmy and the kids bring back Hailey from a strip club in L.A., saying that they just picked up Hailey from the airport, Kirsten not knowing about Hailey being a former stripper.

  • Goof: When Theresa is over at Marissa's, Marissa is pouring coffee into two cups. In a later scene, when they're sitting at the table, Marissa has a cup of tea in front of her. What happened to the coffee she poured just before?

  • Episode Catfight Count: 1

  • Episode Punch Count: 1

  • Goof: When Ryan wins the all-in hand vs. "Angry Trucker Hat" he calls an all in bet of $2500. The pot would then be $5000 plus whatever was already in the pot. Later the pimp says that Ryan and Seth owe him $5000 dollars. They would have had the money to pay off the pimp.

  • Goof: When Ryan is at the poker game the first time, the hand that he has pocket aces, there are already 5 cards on the table when the trucker hat guy goes all-in. Ryan proceeds to call, and then the dealer deals another card. One of the cards has mysteriously disappeared.

  • Goof: When Sandy and Kirsten start talking on the phone, while Kirsten says "Oh thank goodness it's you," the background in Sandy's shot completely changes (a woman disappears, glasses disappear, people change). There is no way that everything could change that quickly.

  • Goof: When Caleb is playing craps at the hard rock, the puck is on the number 8, meaning that the shooter would need to roll an 8 to win. The dice land with a 5 and 2 showing, making 7, which would have lost, even though the dealer says "Pay the line!"

  • Season 1 Episode 25: The Shower

  • Goof: In this episode Marissa states that Julie doesn't ever talk to her parents, but in a previous episode Jimmy says Julie is at her mother's house with Kaitlin.

  • In this episode Julie talks about caterers not wanting to serve meat, because of mad cow, but in the episode the Outsider, Jimmy says he lives with vegetarians, so why would she be wanting beef served at the wedding.

  • Goof: The size of the Cohen's house, and they don't have more than one extra spare bedroom for Theresa to sleep in? Or for Ryan to sleep in while she's in the pool house? In addition, when Kirsten's sister was staying there, Kirsten said she'd make up the guest room for Hailey to stay in. Ryan or Theresa could have stayed there.

  • Goof: When Seth and Summer are kissing on the couch at the school, Summer is kissing his top lip but as camera changes angles, she is kissing his bottom lip. Or vise-versa.
