The Skull in the Desert - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Booth and Bones are driving to tell Angela that her boyfriend is dead, the scenery behind Booth jumps suddenly mid shot. Initially the scene is of a wide plain, then suddenly a mountain range appears. This scene was obviously shot on a sound stage, with the scenic background being projected onto screens around the vehicle, an old trick in movie making. It seems that somebody mistimed the loop of the tape they were using.

The Graft in the Girl - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Bones goes to open the vent on the wall in the mortuary while standing on the coffin, the shot from inside the grate shows her taking a step up and being exactly at head height for it. Only problem is that in the shot previous to this she was significantly short of the grate, and there was nothing on the coffin lid for her to step up onto.

The Graft in the Girl - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Angela asks to see the girl's drawing, in the shot from the girl's perspective as she hands the pad over, the painting's quite small in the centre of the page. When it then cuts to Angela's point of view it takes up nearly the whole page.

The Parts in the Sum of the Whole - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Booth and Bones are telling Sweets about their "real first case" together - the case where they actually met for the first time. During this episode, Booth, Bones, and Angela take some evidence to Caroline, and Booth introduces them both (most importantly Brennan) to Caroline. However, in season 1, episode 19, "The Man in the Morgue", (which would have taken place after this initial first meeting) when Brennan is accused of murder in New Orleans, Booth has Caroline fly to NOLA to be Brennan's lawyer, and he introduces the two of them. If they had already been introduced during the first case Booth and Brennan worked on together, they would not have needed to be introduced here; they would have already known one another.

The Graft in the Girl - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: At 20:13 into the episode, a bunch of victims are shown on the computer screen. If you read their info, several are from Arlington, Virginia. Booth has been trying to find victims from out of state, but says nothing when these come up on the screen. Shortly after this is shown, Hodgins tells him about a victim in Lynchberg, Virginia. He then takes action as the victim is from out of state. He should've noticed the others.

Mistakes

The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.

Trivia

At around 5 mins 11 seconds into the episode, Vincent Nigel-Murrey and Dr. Saroyan are discussing the bones on the forensic platform. In the background of a shot of Vincent, the x-ray on the screen is of Homer Simpson's head in the middle of the screen, instead of a real human skull.
