Bones (2005)

The X in the File - S5-E11

Factual error: The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.


Factual error: Harrison stresses the authenticity of the Hemingway daiquiris at this particular bar. Rowena gives the recipe for the authentic Hemingway daiquiri as "1 oz rum, 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz simple syrup, a splash of grapefruit, a splash of grenadine". Proportions aside, it should contain Maraschino liqueur (cherry flavor) not grenadine (pomegranate flavor). Cane syrup would be more authentic than simple syrup, but forgivable. The drink should be barely pink and served in a cocktail/martini glass (Ro's recipe only makes 4 oz). They are shown drinking a very large, very pink, possibly frozen drink from a pina colada glass.
