Character error 

Bree's sister, half Jewish, misuses the Yiddish phrase "kin-ahora" when she hears about Toby's mother's suicide. The phrase means "may the evil eye be averted" and is roughly equivalent to "knock on wood". It is used when you say something GOOD, to avert a spell cast by a jealous person or a demon. It would NEVER be used with respect to something bad.

Errors in geography 

During the trip from New York to California, Toby asks why they are heading to Dallas. The scene changes from a Midwest setting to inside the Deck Park Tunnel on I-10 in Phoenix heading West (already past Dallas), back to a Midwest neighborhood.

Factual errors 

Bree is on hormones up until the day of her surgery. In reality, estrogen can't be taken for several weeks beforehand because it increases the risk of blood clots.

When Bree is shown coming around after having had her final surgery, her fingernails still have polish on them. Nail polish is always removed prior to surgery, so that any changes in coloring (nails turning blue due to lack of oxygen) are detected by medical personnel.

The bottle of Bree's mother's Premarin that Bree takes from the medicine cabinet is labeled as .06mg. Premarin is not available in that strength. It is available in several strengths, including 0.625mg. A 0.06mg dose would be sub-therapeutic.
