Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13'.Super Grover
Other mistake: The marriage certificate for Rita's first marriage shows her date of birth as 04-19-1989 and Dexter states she married at 16. The marriage date is 08-16-1989, when she would have been 4 months old. She also would only be 17 at the start of the series (2006) if she was born in 1989. (00:13:45)
Other mistake: The Monster appearing in the pilot and causing the turbine to explode is a mistake (not trivia). This is actually an artefact of poor CGI effects that was left in the show in error. It was confirmed by the producers. You can see it best here: http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Image:Turbine_Explosion.gif.
Other mistake: In the home of a murder victim, Columbo presses the telephone's "redial" button to see who was called most recently. A seven-digit number is displayed but only six beeps are heard as the number is redialed. Later, attorney Oscar Finch places a call by dialing only five numbers.
Other mistake: Old Ben duplicates Jenny so she can accompany him to his home planet. As he can turn into anything, he should be able to approximate her height. When the now twins walk out, the girl on the right is a couple of inches taller than the girl on the left.Movie Nut
Other mistake: In a number of episodes Mickey Bricks takes great pains to explain (usually to bent coppers) that he and his team are not thieves, making it plain that as a talented grifter he takes the high moral high ground over common criminals. The trouble is, he and every member of his team ARE thieves. In the very first episode "The Con Is On" Three Socks Morgan cleans out the bank accounts of a number of innocent people by rigging an automatic teller machine. He is stealing money, either from them or the bank. Stacie Monroe is shown picking pockets in a number of episodes and in "The Henderson Challenge" both Mickey and Danny Blue steal wallets from bystanders, a trick Mickey repeats in "The Return of the Prodigal." He also steals the victim's car. There are too many other examples to list here, but Mickey's pride in his exalted position as a master conman is definitely misplaced.
Other mistake: For secret agents, Sydney and Dixon are not very dedicated to secret identities. At several points they refer to each other by their real names in front of other people while they are under aliases. Examples include The Confession party and The Coup Las Vegas scenes.Phoenix
Other mistake: In episode "Kill Switch" it states that Jason Billings died from a broken neck, it shows Tony Decker kicking him in the face snapping his neck. Jason then tries to claw his way up onto Tony's deck leaving the scratches and blood and getting the splinter under his nail. This wouldn't have been possible since he would have already been dead.Boobra
Other mistake: During the scene after the fund raising dance when Lucas offers to take Hanna home, she calls him Ian when she says that she is going home with Emily and Spencer. Confirmed in subtitles.
Other mistake: In the scene where Drakken accidentally "clones" Bonnie Rockwaller instead of Kim Possible, he holds up a picture of Kim to compare the results of his experiment with the real thing. The Bonnie clone, completely encapsulated behind the glass of Drakken's cloning machine (as evidenced by the reflection of light off of it) somehow manages to get a hold of the picture despite this barrier. (She does this without having to break the glass.).
Other mistake: Slightly after the opening credits, Jack Malone is investigating the disappearance of Annie Miller and is standing in her mother's bedroom. He turns to Carol Miller's boyfriend and asks to "speak to Mrs. Malone alone." The subtitles correctly have 'Miller' written, but when Anthony LaPaglia says his line, the two words rhyme.
