Shalom - S4-E1

Designated Target - S5-E8

Factual error: The season 5 episode "Designated Target" deals with the murder of a Navy admiral and the cab driver transporting him through Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC. Late in the episode, the investigators try to get a lead on another cab driver by tapping into the records from taxi meters. The problem is, DC cabs don't yet have meters. Congress banned them in 1933, but legislation passed this year now gives the DC government authority to install meters. And in fact, just days before this episode aired in Nov 2007, DC's mayor announced plans to switch from the zone system to meters by April 2008.

Twisted Sister - S4-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Abby is going through the garbage to disprove Tim's sister you can see a crew member's foot in the screen- it's a brown boot.

Up in Smoke - S9-E23

Continuity mistake: When we see Gibbs and Dr. Ryan at Gibbs' house he places two mugs on the table. The mugs' positions change between shots.

Cabin Fever - S12-E15

Continuity mistake: When the Russian agent is talking to the bad guy, the Russian agent's coat collar changes position in just about every shot.

Anonymous Was a Woman - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Tony and Gibbs are riding together and Tony is eating a sandwich, it starts about half gone, the angle changes and there is only a bite gone, the angle changes again and it is about half gone again.

Lost at Sea - S10-E4

Character mistake: During the interrogation of Petty Officer Sparks, JAG Officer Lieutenant Nora Patel says "Lieutenant Sparks has a right to legal counsel."

Season 4 generally

Revealing mistake: During season 4 the same television clip of President Bush and VP Cheney disembarking Air Force One is used on the background television in the squad room. In some cases the clip is running and not in unison, on three of the televisions in the same scene from shot to shot.

Sharif Returns - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When Sharif calls Gibbs to gloat, when Sharif ends the call, the shot cuts to Gibbs closing his cell phone, shot cuts to McGee and Col. Mann, when it cuts back to Gibbs, he is closing his phone again. We can even hear the phone close both times.

Twisted Sister - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Tim and sister Sarah are working on the past evening's timeline, Sarah's clothes lying on the counter change position between the wide shots and the close-ups. Also the plastic her shoes are sitting on in the wide shots disappears in the close-up when she removes them and when she picks up the baggie of money. The screen shot of the locations in the time line also change locations. The 9:30 and 10:00 individual locations show up in the Georgetown University area but when they zoom out to show all three locations, the two time location now show the George Washington University, Foggy Bottom area of D. C., and it shows Tim's residence as being in Arlington National Cemetery.

Dagger - S6-E9

Factual error: During the sequence where Bankston and Lee are supposed to make the dead drop of Domino, Adams Tavern, the location of the drop, is shown to be at 2177 Pimmit Drive in Woodbridge Va. The map that is showing the location is geographically correct, but "Pimmit Drive" is actually Horner Road. Also once the action leaves the bar, Lee and Bankston hijack a bus that reads "District Transit Authority". Since they are in Woodbridge, the bus service would be OmniLink.

Spiritfire

Dagger - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Lee is being guarded by Tim and Tiny in the conference room, the coffee pots, stir sticks, cups and sugar bowls behind Lee change positions throughout the scene.

Spiritfire

Dagger - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tony and Ziva discover the dead body in Amanda's hiding place the dead body's extended arm is lying on the rug on the floor, and is left that way when Gibbs tell them to leave, yet in the next scene when Ducky shows Gibbs a picture of the dead body, the rug beneath the extended arm has disappeared.

Spiritfire

Dagger - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Ziva discover the hiding place of Amanda, the position of the dead body's extended hand and the puddle of blood change.

Spiritfire

Agent Afloat - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: During the investigation of the dead wife's crime scene, the arms of the corpse change position from shot to shot throughout the scene, including a moment where the corpse's arms are crossed, then in the next shot Ducky is shown crossing her arms. Ducky is also shown crossing the same arm twice, and the guitar control also changes direction and position with respect to the body.

Under Covers - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In S1 E15 "Enigma", about 30 minutes in, Gibbs takes out his flask and the engraving is "For Good Luck, Your Loving" with the bullet on it. At the end of this episode it's engraved with "Jethro, For Good Luck Love Shannon and Kelly".

You Better Watch Out - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: When Tony's dad arrives at the NCIS office for Christmas, he is met at the elevator by Ziva. He is holding a Christmas present (which looks like a bouquet of flowers) with the 'red' end up. As the camera angle changes, he is now holding it 'red' side down.

Playing with Fire - S9-E22

Continuity mistake: When Tony & Ziva meet their contact in Naples, we see a local cop walking down the background behind them, and passing a walkway to the boat. Seconds later, as the camera changes view, we see that cop about 30 feet back, going the same way.
