Hubris - S1-E11

Corrected entry: In the episode "Hubris", Lily finds a quote in a letter a suspect wrote to the victim, "for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them", which she says sounds a little like Shakespeare. She and a few other cops are later seen reading through several Shakespeare plays in an attempt to find it, but this is madness when you consider a) the sheer mass of his work and b) that she isn't even sure it's a quote from him. Much faster would have been to Google the phrase, which brings up several hundred pages identifying it as a line from Hamlet. Any experienced detective would think of this first.

Shay

Correction: True, it would have been easier, but she may not have thought of it. Besides, her stupidity is not a mistake.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In the Season Five opener "Thrill Kill," when Dylan is being led out of jail, you can see palm trees in the background behind him. This reveals that the scene was filmed in Los Angeles, not Philadelphia.

Lilly Rush: People shouldn't be forgotten. They matter. They should get justice, too.
