In the episode "Datalore," they make a very important point about Data not being able to use contractions. (Wesley recognizes Lore when he says "Beautiful, isn't it?") Yet in the end, when Lore is defeated, listen closely. Data says, "Yes sir, I'm fine."

Actualy, this mistake doesn't apply to any episode after the one Data made a child. The child he made, Lal, was able to use contractions. When Lal died, he transfered her programs and memories into himself and was able to use contractions at the end of the episode.

I just thought of a better title for this slipup. It's "I can't use contractions".

They always break rules like this. In several episodes people have said that they must/mustn't do something or the ship can't do something else, but whatever they said seems to happen anyway.

Wasn't that how they found out which droid was Data and which was his evil brother Lore?
