Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The Crime Scene - S6-E6

Character mistake: Jake and Rosa are looking around in The Apartment for months. 14 CIS workers are analyzing The Apartment. All of them are looking for a killer who never left The Apartment. Still, in multiple months no-one thinks about checking the person-sized vents. Seems pretty unlikely. Vents are literally the first thing anybody thinks about when people try to disappear. And a vent of this size is a dead giveaway that someone for sure would have checked.

DFW - S5-E17

Character mistake: When Gina tries to set up Rosa on a date, Rosa mentions the last person Gina set her up with (Justin) was a dork who rode a Yamaha motorcycle. She says "he might as well have picked me up in a station wagon." Rosa's bike is a Yamaha R1.

Casecation - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: Jake mentions that he's never wanted kids, however he has mentioned loads of times in previous seasons/episodes about wanting to become a Dad.

The Venue - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When Charles shows the picture of the horse and says "look what you get when you search for 'Charles Boyle medal of valor'" he's typed "peanut butter the horse" into his phone.

Max Thompson

Boyle's Hunch - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Just before the end credits, Boyle is walking to his desk and he places his jacket over his chair with his bag on top of the coat. The shot changes to Peralta speaking but then the shot goes back onto Boyle and the jacket has disappeared. (00:20:20)

Pontiac Bandit - S1-E12

Factual error: When Jake is given a burner phone by Doug Judy, he receives a text message from the 'Pontiac Bandit'. The phone is an old cellphone from the late 90s, but the text message makes an iPhone sound/tone from the late 2000s. He receives another text message again later with the same tone. (00:09:55 - 00:12:50)

Yippie Kayak - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Because the show is filmed in L.A, the lack of snow in December is very noticeable. When the characters are outside there isn't any snow whatsoever, but when Jake, Gina, and Charles are inside the store, the audience can see the heavy snow and blizzard outside from a large window behind them. (00:07:55)

Bureau - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In season 2 episode 11, Jake is shown doing at least 3 pull ups but in this episode he shows he doesn't know how to do one and Terry has to show him.

Your Honor - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: In the cold open, when Jake throws the door handle at the interrogation room mirror trying to break it, the handle bounces off the glass to his right, but when the shot cuts to in front of him to show his reaction, the handle flies off to his left. (00:01:00)

Payback - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: At the start, Terry takes Jake's phone off him while he's in the middle of writing a text. We see the screen and it's on the regular homescreen. Jake then takes it back and immediately carries on typing, not opening up the messaging app first.

Casecation - S6-E12

Factual error: Amy is wearing a NYPD detectives badge even though she is a Sergeant at this point in the show. (00:01:00 - 00:21:20)

Gray Star Mutual - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When Adrian stamps "denied" onto Boyle's insurance claim form, there's blank spots where there wasn't enough ink on the stamp (which would happen because he had the stamp in his pocket for a while). But then when he says "denied" and holds up the form, "denied" is all filled in fully. Also, the red border is lighter and the location has shifted down.

The Chopper - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: When Terry answers the phone to his wife after he changes his relationship status to "it's complicated", he answers the phone but the phone is still on the answer the call menu.

Captain Peralta - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The scene where Boyle explains the case for Scully and Hitchcock you can see the same two people walking by the room 3 times, coming from right to left in the background. (00:08:30 - 00:09:20)

Terry Kitties - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Charles approaches Adrian about how much longer he's going to stay at his place, he knocks stuff off the desk leaving a pink folder. After Adrian takes the fork away from Charles' neck, there are now extra folders on top of the pink one.

Yippie Kayak - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: At the end, Gina makes her flame-thrower with cologne and lighter. However, she never lights the lighter and the flames still appear, as if they were just added in digitally.

Halloween III - S3-E5

Plot hole: Amy lets Scully place the witch in the break-room, but how could she have known that after captain Holt steals the crown out of the locker, he would go there? And not for example goes back through the window he came from.

Operation: Broken Feather - S1-E15

Adam Sandler: This is terrible, you don't know what you're doing.
Jake Peralta: Adam Sandler?
Adam Sandler: Yeah, that's right. I collect antiquities. I'm a serious person. I'm writing a movie right now, about the Russian revolution.
Jake Peralta: Oh, really? Who does Kevin James play in it?
Adam Sandler: Ha ha. It's a serious movie...Trotsky.
Jake Peralta: Ah, there it is.
Adam Sandler: But he's got a wife who never wears a bra. [To the guy next to him] I think you're going to like it.
Jake Peralta: Thanks for dressing up, by the way.

Payback - S2-E13

Question: While trying to keep Terry busy at the gym, Jake is on the treadmill and believes he has burned 200 calories, until Terry corrects him and tells him 200 is his heart rate. I know it's a joke, but in reality, could a person even talk with a heart rate of 200 bpm? (00:16:20)
