After Dean helps Rory carry her box of books, we see a view of Luke's diner from the outside; Lorelai is in a black shirt and ponytail and Rory is in a Periwinkle shirt, both of them enjoying a conversation. In the next shot, we see Lorelai in a purple shirt with her hair down and Rory in a brown or black sweater with a red turtleneck, both silently eating. The first shot of the outside of the diner was actually from the last scene when Lorelai and Rory went to Luke's after having Friday night dinner at the Gilmores'.

In the Pilot episode Luke's diner is in the middle of the block and doesn't have a "William's Hardware" sign. The letters are instead engraved above the door.

The Gilmore Mansion is different than in later episodes. The entrance way has steps to go up to the front door landing. In future episodes, the front entrance and driving area are very different. No steps to the front door and the parking area in front keeps changing, adding bushes and a fountain type sculpture.

In the shot where Lorelei and Rory are in Luke's diner, after Lorelei moves her burger in front of her, the plate changes positions several times between shots and the tomatoes flip back and forth from one bun to the other.

In the opening scene, and all episode, Luke's diner is considerably smaller than the rest of the series and a bit different. Also, the "Good" and "Food" signs are on windows which don't appear to be part of the diner space (they are to the sides of the diner's walls when looking from the inside).

Lorelai walks into the Independence Inn's kitchen, with a bag in her right hand- nothing in her left, to tell Sookie that Rory got into Chilton, in the next shot Rory's acceptance letter appears in Lorelai's previously empty left hand.

When watching this episode, viewers can see an exterior shot of Rory and Lorelai inside of Luke's diner at the 27:07 mark. This moment is out of sequence. It shows Rory in a blue sweater and Lorelai in black meanwhile, in the very next shot - of the ladies inside of Luke's eating dinner - their outfits are different, with Lorelai wearing purple and Rory wearing black. The exterior shot, and Lorelai and Rory's outfits in said shot, are the same in the episode's ending. This exterior shot was meant to be placed at the end yet for some reason, can be seen here, out of place.
