The Message - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Jayne reads in the note from his mother that she enclosed something in the box for him, there is a shot of Zoƫ reaching for a crowbar to open Tracey's coffin. Jayne's left hand is visible on the far right of this shot, holding the hat that his mother knitted for him. In the following shot he takes the hat out of the box despite already having it in his left hand in the previous shot.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Jayne receives a hat from his mother in the post, and when he takes it out of the package it is covered in wood shavings or some similar packing material. He puts it on his head like that, but for the remainder of the scene, the hat alternates from being covered in shavings to clean and back again.

When Shepherd Book tells everyone about the electrical nets, Jayne says, "One day you're gonna tell us all how a preacher knows so damn much about crime." Shepherd then turns to leave. But in the immediate close up of him and Mal, he turns to leave again.
