The Sniper - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Henry is talking to a general on the phone when the chopper is coming in. He's trying to tell the man that he can't hear him. As he continues trying to talk, he gives up, and hangs the receiver up on the skeleton's head. If you look, you can see the hook that was conveniently placed for the gag.

Heroes - S10-E18

Continuity mistake: As Col. Potter toasts the champ, his glass jumps from the table into his hand with the cut from side view to frontal.

Peace On Us - S7-E2

Revealing mistake: Klinger says "The sun is going to ruin my comb-out", fingering his hair net. He has curlers under his hair net, but his hair is not around the curlers, they're just stuffed into his hair net.

Private Charles Lamb - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: The sound of crew making an explosion with their mouth as a cue can be heard just before the actual audio of an explosion plays.

The Merchant of Korea - S6-E14

Plot hole: In this episode, the military money, or scrip, is being called in and exchanged for a different color (and assumedly design - otherwise counterfeiters could just keep using their printing plates) to battle counterfeiting. However, in previous episodes several colors of scrip are being used equally and at the same time - e.g. in episode "Hey, Doc" (4-5), Sgt. Kimble collects a pot consisting of both blue and tan one-dollar scrip notes. No previous indication was given in the show that the army started a practice of using just one color at a time.

Souvenirs - S5-E22

Factual error: The MP describes the antique vase Burns is supposed to have bought as "An 800-year-old seladon vase of the Ko-Yu dynasty". Later, Burns packs up a white vase to send to his wife. Seladon is by definition green, and that kind of color glazing definitely wasn't around in the 13th century. What Burns packs up looks most like early to middle Quing period - or rather a contemporary ripoff.

Where There's a Will, There's a War - S10-E16

Revealing mistake: When Hawkeye injects the adrenalin into the chest of the dying soldier at the battalion aid station, you can see that he is actually injecting into a piece of rubber foam soaked with prop blood.

Heroes - S10-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Champ falls forward, he gets wine all over his sweater - you can see it when Potter and Hawkeye lift him. After the cut, his sweater is clean again. Considering the position of the stains relative to Hawk's hand, at least some stains would be visible.

Bottle Fatigue - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Klinger refuses to give Winchester the letter from his sister, Winchester screams at him, Klinger jumps and falls to the ground next to Winchester's bunk. After the cut, Klinger is sitting next to Hawkeye's bunk (note the airplane seat in the background instead of the door) and Winchester is holding the letter in his hand opening it. Rightfully it should be on the floor next to Winchester's bunk. If you look closely, you can see it flying out of Klinger's hand towards the door.

Foreign Affairs - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When Col. Potter runs out of his tent to say goodbye to Capt. Lal, he wears only one slipper. When the jeep drives away and Potter's feet once more are visible, both feet are in slippers.

Mulcahy's War - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye and BJ unload the chopper, the dog, Corp. Cupcake, is lying on its paws in the long shots and on its side in the closeups.

As You Were - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Hawkeye pulls the blanket over Frank's right arm, then pulls his left arm up to take his pulse. In the following closeup Frank's right arm is uncovered, and the blanket is below the screen.

Hey, Doc - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: When Radar carries the field phone from Col. Potter's desk over to Hawkeye who is squatting in the corner, the phone doesn't have a phone line attached. It is an EE-8 Military Field Phone, which is a wired device, not a radio - even if Radar elsewhere says he has somebody "on the radio" when in fact he is using an EE-8.

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Margret puts the gun belt around Frank's waist, it is twisted in the back. After the cut, it is righted.

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Other mistake: When Hawkeye drives the damaged tank out of the camp, the front MG is missing. There's not a mark on the armor surrounding the MG port that might suggest it was destroyed in battle. Why would a tank in combat just be missing one of its MGs?

April Fools - S8-E25

Continuity mistake: When Sgt. Rizzo comes out from under the jeep, in the closeup his cigar is in his mouth. After the cut, the cigar is in his hand.

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Factual error: When Hawkeye leaves the tank after parking it in the trash heap, he comes out of the cupola hatch. He should be coming out of the driver's hatch, because he sure as hell didn't drive that tank from the turret.

Where There's a Will, There's a War - S10-E16

Continuity mistake: As Hawkeye climbs under the table to hide there are three small stacks of white bandage boxes on the table. When the shelling starts, all the boxes in two of the stacks fall off the table, leaving one stack. When the shot changes, there are suddenly two stacks of boxes on the table.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: In the shot where the horse kicks in the door, there's actually two shots - a kick, a quick cut, another kick. If you look closely, you can see how the hoof of one of the horse-leg props breaks off during the first kick. The second kick is performed by one leg only. If you look really closely - and probably use the slow-motion function - you can even make out the hand of the one wielding the leg through the hole made in the first kick.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In the episode when Radar gives Potter the horse, they keep referring to the horse as "he". In later episodes, the horse is a mare named Sophie.
