NSF Thurmont - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Donna is writing on a pad to Josh when awaiting surgery, she first writes "Nice hat!!!" A few seconds later we see the pad again, and the exclamation marks have disappeared. Shortly after, they are back.

NSF Thurmont - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: Leo enters the situation room and is told the "planes are on the deck". He watches a video feed as a plane is launched from the USS Lincoln. The S3-B Viking is seen approaching one camera (single vertical tail fin, wing-mounted engines), then from another angle, we see an F-14 Tomcat lifting off (dual tails and fuselage-mounted engines) and moving away from camera. This is supposed to be live video, and it isn't possible two different jets are launching from the same carrier at the same exact moment, so it can only be a bad choice of stock footage by the show's makers.

Continuity mistake: Josh and another aide on the Mat Santos campaign are walking up the stairs to go out into a public area, as they reach the top of the stairs and about to go out the door they are not wearing sunglasses as obviously they are indoors, but in the next shot outside they are both wearing sunglasses without putting them on.

365 Days - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: As the President leads the staff out of the Oval Office, the rear angle shot shows Kate Harper is ahead of Annabeth Schott. But the angle reverses to show them emerging from the office as Kate is coming around Annabeth's right side to pass her. (00:40:00)

In the Room - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the senator talks to Josh, he says he's going to investigate again why Margudian went to play golf with a navy helicopter, and Josh says that was a year ago, but Margudian was in the first/second season. That's a lot more than a year.

Continuity mistake: When C.J. and Toby discuss and have a snack in Toby's office while the president waits for Chairman Farad's call, at some point C.J. talks while holding the pack of peanut butter crackers in one hand, and one that she is about to eat in the other. Less than a second and a half later, the camera is back on her, but she is now seen holding a bottle of water that was on the table only seconds before. (00:24:25)

365 Days - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate Harper and Sec. Hutchinson are arguing about the hostages in Bolivia, the digital clocks on the wall behind Kate don't sync properly as the shot switches between the two of them. (00:30:15)

NSF Thurmont - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kate is in Leo's office with the red folder on her lap, the position of her hands changes depending on the camera angle. Viewed from in front both hands are gripping either end of the folder, from behind her hands are clasped together and rested on top of the folder.

Mistakes

In Season 1, Episodes 5&6, it's mentioned several times that Zoey is already 19 a few weeks before she starts college. Yet in this episode, Charlie points out to Leo and the President later tells Oliver Babbish that Zoey was 17 when she was filling out her enrollment forms for college, therefore a parent had to sign them. These are enrollment forms, not application forms - it's extremely unlikely that they were filled out over a year before she started school.
