Continuity mistake: When Rabb lands at Norfolk the number of the chopper is 426, there he meets Commander Turner who says that he takes the same chopper as transport to the submarine. The Sea Knight is the last transport to leave the base before lock-down. When the same chopper approaches the USS Crawford it suddenly has the number 62.

Continuity mistake: Just as the F-14's are coming under fire from the ship, we are shown the pilots. One of the pilots, "Pendry" was killed when his F-14 crashed due to a malfunction in the earlier episode 'Pilot Error'. As such, "Pendry" could not have been fired on in this episode since he was already deceased.
Continuity mistake: Season 9, Episode 5, "Touchdown:" When they try to land the C130 on the aircraft carrier, the co-pilot says that they don't have the right landing gear down, so she goes to the back to instruct one of the passengers how to lower the gear manually. The problem is that they lower the left gear, which was already down.

Continuity mistake: As Harm & Mac are taking off, Mac reminds Harm how much she hates flying, especially since the last time they went up, they crashed & she was stabbed in the leg ("Full Engagement"). In that episode though, Mac is shot, not stabbed. The comment is also in error as the last time the two went flying was when they flew a MIG-29 & ejected after being fired upon in "To Russia With Love".
Continuity mistake: The scenes that appeared on the television that the Sheriff was watching at the beginning was from the 1970's movie, "Smokey & The Bandit". Several of the clips were out of order, not to mention jumping from the beginning of the movie, then close to the end.
Continuity mistake: The lone shark's thugs break down Mac's door trying to get to her husband, Chris Ragle, who is hiding in her apartment. Although the door is splintered to pieces, later that night, the same door is back in perfect condition, including the custom paint job that matches the interior decor of the apartment.
Continuity mistake: The death of the astronaut occurring while practicing the escape in the bucket would never happen in real life. That is because when NASA conducts them in real life before a shuttle launch, the crew practices everything up to entering the bucket. NASA does not want to run the risk of their astronauts being injured during a simple practice.
Continuity mistake: When the Cubans prepare to fire the Harpoon missile there is a shot of the Mk13 launcher preparing the missile for firing. However, later in the episode when they fire, the shot shows the missile coming out of the vertical launch cells forward of the Mk 13 launcher.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, Harm is referred to as "Lieutenant Commander", and wears the respective insignia. But he's still a lieutenant at this point; he isn't promoted for another three episodes. This occurred due to several season 1 episodes being aired in the wrong order, with the DVDs going by the same broadcast order.

Continuity mistake: At Harm's apartment, when talking to Mac about Cmdr. Krennick's advances towards him, he tells Mac that he wouldn't get involved with a superior officer, anymore than she would. However, it had already been established earlier this season in "For The Good of the Service" that Mac had a romantic relation with her Commanding Officer, Lt. Colonel Farrow.
Continuity mistake: While Mac is in a restaurant with three of the Wiccans, another woman comes over to give them verbal abuse. When you first see her, part of her dress is showing. When the camera comes back to her, that part is no longer seen. Also, the exterior scenes indicate that the location really isn't Gulfport.
Continuity mistake: The USS Patrick Henry in "JAG" has always used the hull number "74" on the sailors' ballcaps, as well as the scenes of the ship. (CVN-74 in real-life is the USS John C. Stennis). However, in the scene just before the pilots' briefing, the stock footage of the carrier was of a different vessel, hull number 59. In real-life, "59" was the USS Forrestal (CVA-59), the ship that had one of the deadliest shipboard fire on July 29, 1967. The fire killed 132 crewmen, injured 62, with 2 missing & presumed dead. The fire raged for several hours & would have destroyed the carrier, if not for the actions of the heroic crewmen to save her.
Continuity mistake: The opening scene, which is a replay of the ending scene from the previous episode, is slightly different. When Gen. Cresswell tells Mac she'll be stationed in San Diego, Harm comments "It's only a five hour plane ride" instead of "it's only five hours away", and when Rabb is promoted to Captain, Cresswell briefly pauses at "it's" when he says "By the way, it's a captain's billet", while there was previously no pause.

Continuity mistake: When Captain Boone descends to engage the Hind, they are in forested mountains. It then cuts to the Hind, and there are no trees, then after the tomcat crew punch out, the RIO is hanging in the trees. The scenes that showed the Hind were cut from the movie Red Dawn.

Continuity mistake: When Lt. Roberts is held hostage in Admiral Chegwidden's office with the Admiral and the Major, he mentions a sister named Winifred. She is never mentioned again throughout the series. In later seasons it is implied that Lt. Roberts only has one sibling, a brother named Mikey.
Continuity mistake: When Ducky is performing the autopsy on Lt. Singer, Vivian dabs a vapor neutralizer under her nose, screws the top back on, and puts it in her pocket. In the following wide shot, she screws the lid on again and puts it in her pocket a second time.
Continuity mistake: When the armored car with the money arrives, the scene starts with the time 10:32 typed on the screen. It is full daylight and shadows are short, so this is consistent with the printed time. When the next armored car arrives empty, it is supposed to be one hour later, but it is pitch dark. The characters say that the first truck came at 17:00 hours (which would be 5:00 p.m.) and the truck before them was scheduled for 18:00 hours.
