A Kiss Before Frying - S11-E12

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Greg meets Rita at the bus station, she puts her arms around his neck. The next shot from the front shows her arms and hands on Greg's chest. Rita's arm/hand position changes continually throughout the scene.

Blood Moon - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When Nick is talking to Catherine about what happened at the night of the murder he folds his arms. In the next show they are unfolded. Although you can't see his arms entirely, it becomes clear from the position of his shoulders and the wrinkle in the middle of his shirt that instantly disappears.

Hitting for the Cycle - S11-E18

Continuity mistake: Series 11, Episode 18, "Hitting for the Cycle": At the very beginning of the episode they are talking about the cycle while looking at the board. The three main ones, Suicide, Accidental and Homicide, are together on cards with a space above and then two more cards. The scene then goes out to show the CSIs again, and there are now four cards grouped together on the board.

Father of the Bride - S11-E20

Continuity mistake: Season 11 - Episode 20 "Father of the Bride." As the doctor's wife is sitting talking with Nick about Vegas being the fugitive capitol of the world, watch her hands. At first they are spread far apart on the table. The shot changes and they are suddenly crossed in front of her.

Too Tough to Die - S1-E16

Character mistake: Seven minutes into the show, Sarah Sidle is about to do an internal sexual assault exam/kit on an unconscious victim in the hospital, Sarah picks up a metal speculum and says aloud to the victim (in a presumed moment of empathy), that she "never really liked this part of my yearly exam. These things are always freezing" referring to the speculum in her hands. She then brings a speculum to her mouth and begins to blow open-mouthed on it two times, forcing her hot breath on it to warm it. She then begins to insert it into the victim as the scene cuts away. This is pure stupidity, as no trained CSI would ever contaminate the tool like this. Sarah just added her own DNA to the speculum via her breath so any saliva or body fluids are now on the speculum what she is about to use on this patient, who is now also exposed to any STDs from Sarah.

Sounds of Silence - S1-E20

Trivia: For those who don't (or can't) read American Sign Language, at the end of the episode, Grissom says to Dr. Gilbet is that his mother lost her hearing when she was eight years old. He once asked her what is it like to be deaf, and she told Grissom (who loved to swim) that it was like being underwater. She also taught him that being deaf does not make one inferior to others. Dr. Gilbert then replies that she teaches her students the same lesson.

Suckers - S4-E13

Question: After finding out that Ty was committing insurance fraud, why did Grissom walk away instead of arresting him?

Answer: He doesn't have the authority to arrest him - when anyone is arrested in the show, a police officer does it. Also he tells Ty that he is going to be submitting his case findings to Ty's insurance company, who would no doubt contact the IRS, who then would have him arrested for fraud etc.
