Factual error: When the bus is shown entering Washington, DC for the competition, the shot shows the bus traveling over the Arlington Memorial Bridge with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. That bridge is on the southwest side of the city. Since NYC is to the northeast of DC, this means that to get to that bridge and enter DC that way, the bus had to drive all the way around the city and then come back in from the opposite direction. Even if the bus driver made a mistake and missed the most direct route into the city from the north, there are dozens of other ways to get to the heart of the city without adding a good 45 minutes to an hour to the trip.

The Bad Beginning: Part Two - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Olaf is standing at that secretary's desk, he reads the calendar and says his name is "haircut." The secretary and the top of her desk are shown several times and in most of the shots, the calendar is visible near the secretary's left arm. However, in at least one of those shots, the calendar vanishes.

Spaceballs (1987)

Continuity mistake: As the shaving guard falls, he gets shaving cream on Lonestar's right jacket arm. In the next shot Lonestar reaches down to grab the badge and that same arm comes into view and it is completely clean. There isn't enough time between shots for him to have wiped it off.

Continuity mistake: When Han is holding Leia to his chest a close-up of her face shows his hand holding her head with his fingers near her ear. The shot changes to behind her and his same hand has instantly moved to the base of her neck.

The Voyager Conspiracy - S6-E9

Factual error: When the alien contacts Voyager after his catapult jump, he states that he is 5,000 light years away. Despite the distance, he and Janeway have a real time conversation. With this incredible communications technology, Voyager (which is at this point less than 55,000 light years from the Alpha Quadrant) should be able to have several back and forth conversations a day with Starfleet.

Factual error: At the end of the Mamushka, Fester catches the final knife down his throat. With the length of the blade and the angle at which the knife is in his mouth, the point of the knife should be coming out the back of his head.

Purpose in the Machine - S3-E2

Factual error: When examining the sand, Bobbi states "According to carbon dating..." Fitz finishes by saying "It's a billion years older than the earth." However, carbon dating is only good at determining the age of something to about 60,000 years old. The only thing carbon dating could tell about the sand is that it is 60,000 years old or older. It certainly couldn't determine that the sand was 5 billion years old.

All Happy Families Are Alike - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Moroni arrives to kill Falconi, the number of turns of rope around the hook holding Falconi changes. First it is just one loop from the front, then the shot changes to the back and it is two. The shot changes to the front again and now there are three loops of rope around the hook.

The Fearsome Dr. Crane - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Nygma examines the corpse, he pushes his right hand deep into the body. When he is caught, he holds both hands up in the air. The glove on his right hand is completely clean, when it should be covered in blood and gore.

Batman (1966)

The Funny Feline Felonies (1) - S3-E16

Factual error: When Batgirl checks Batman's pulse, she states that his pulse is "three beats per minute." However, she only holds Batman's wrist for two seconds. There is no way she could have determined that pulse rate in so short a time. It is unlikely she could have detected even one heartbeat at that rate in two seconds.

Family Guy (1999)

Trivia: When Peter falls out of the tree and ends up with his bottom lip over his head, this is an homage to Carol Burnett's classic comedy routine where she describes the best way for men to experience the pain of childbirth. She tells men to grab their bottom lip, and pull it over their head.

Other mistake: When Sulu tells Kirk he is coming to help, he states the Excelsior is currently in the Alpha Quadrant. The problem is the the Alpha Quadrant in the Star Trek universe is one quarter of the total Milky Way Galaxy. While technically correct, Sulu giving his position as in the Alpha Quadrant is useless to Kirk in terms of knowing when to expect help. It doesn't matter where Khitomer is in the galaxy. Sulu saying he is in the Alpha Quadrant gives Kirk absolutely no idea of when he will arrive. He could be anywhere from 5 minutes away to 5 weeks away or even further. Remember, it was originally projected to take Voyager 70 years to go from the Delta Quadrant back to the Federation in the Alpha Quadrant.

Continuity mistake: As Thorin is picked up by the eagle, the eagle's talons roll him towards the camera. Both of the eagle's feet are in view and you can see all the way down Thorin's body to his boots. Orcrist is nowhere on his body during this initial shot of the pickup. As soon as the shot changes (where the Oakenshield drops free) and both of the eagle's feet come back into view, Orcrist is now on Thorin's body, running over his stomach and left leg. Had it been there before, it would have been visible when the eagle rolled him towards the camera.

The Greatest Gift - S3-E13

Second Sight - S2-E9

Character mistake: When Nedelle collapses, everyone looks to Jadzia to save her and she says she can't. Why do they think Jadzia can save her? She isn't a doctor, and the Dax symbiant was never a doctor either. They are on board a Federation ship, with a Federation crew, why do they not call the ship's doctor?

Continuity mistake: When showing how Andy switches the books, watch the folder on the table. The folder has a corner that is bent up. When Andy removes the Bible and folder from behind his back and places then on the table, the folder he places has the bent corner. The one already on the table is perfectly flat.
