905-Wild - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Squad 51 speeding toward their destination, and when the camera cuts to the woman in front of the market, she's waving her arms to the squad somewhere in the distance. But notice that while Rosa is looking to her left and waving, we can see Squad 51's reflection in the window (with the liquor bottles), as they are parked right there, just off-screen waiting for their cue to "speedily" pull up.

My Fair Esther - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: Fred is reading from "The Joanna Rhodes Beauty Book" and the title is shown on the dust cover. When Fred tilts the book, though, the words "Winston S. Churchill" are visible on the actual book under the dust cover. Also visible is the script from which the actor is reading, tucked inside the book and held by clips.

With This Ring, I Thee Kill! - S1-E7
