Revealing mistake: While showing the clip of Marshall streaking the first time, you can see thumbnails for videos of him streaking in New York. Those videos were created later that day and could not already be posted. One also shows a woman in yellow and appears to be a retake of the scene. (00:06:15)
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Sarah crashes into the agent's buggy, you see they have been replaced with dummies. When the car first hits, you see one of the dummies fall out, but they are both seated in the next shot. Also you see that it is not Sarah driving but a man. (00:36:50)Melissa Jane Swift
Revealing mistake: When they show the soldiers killed by the Dalek, in both the hallway outside the cage and the large room in weapons testing, they show some casings which were ejected from the soldiers' guns. The casings still have projectiles in them. If used, they would have been in magazines and would never fall out like they are shown.papajim
Revealing mistake: When Agent Hotchner receives a text from JJ while interviewing the suspect, it is actually a screenshot. You can see Camera Roll in the upper left hand corner, "2 of 2" where JJ's name should be, and the Share/Play/Delete banner at the bottom. It is covered by Agent Hotchner quickly tapping on the screen to clear the banners. (00:16:15)
Revealing mistake: When Toby announces that he's moving to Costa Rica, he gets up and goes to hop the fence. He moves out of frame and when the camera goes back to him, he's been replaced by a stunt double, which can be seen as the double's face is visible after he's scaled the fence. (00:17:15)Knever
Revealing mistake: It is strange that the news coverage at the beginning of this episode is able to cover the story from all angles in such rapid succession: from the helicopter straight to the ground, then even a close-up of the goon atop the crystal mount Diamondhead traps him on.
Revealing mistake: In episode number 9 of the first season, "Valerie Hangs With the Cool Kids", Valerie receives a call from Juna saying that she is required at the studio for filming. She rushes there, and when she opens the white door to enter the studio, there is a plastic sign on the door saying, "The Comeback". Seeing as Valerie's Comeback show is not solely filmed in the same studio as "Room & Bored", it has to be advertising the real show with Lisa Kudrow, and therefore shouldn't be in shot. (00:22:05)
Revealing mistake: During the training montage, right as Mac is about to smash the bottle over Charlie's head, you can see Charlie stop what he's doing about a half-second before being hit, and brace himself for the impact, despite not being able to see it coming. This is confirmed on the DVD commentary.TedStixon
Revealing mistake: When Derek Shepherd tells Meredith about his wife cheating you see Meredith Grey standing by her car and you can hear and see the rain all around the trailer, while Derek Shepherd is sitting on his porch under an overhang. Before Meredith sits down you can see rain hitting the hood of her car. When Meredith sits next to him she is completely dry. When she goes back to her car the camera does a close up and she is still completely dry even though her car is covered in rain drops and you can see the rain in the background. (00:37:10 - 00:39:40)
