Bones

The Man with the Bone - S1-E18

Character mistake: The finger bone found in the dead man's hand was said to come from somewhere near Assateague Island, to which Hodgins replies, "That's where the money pit is." The "Money Pit" is actually located on Oak Island in Nova Scotia, not on Assateague Island, in Maryland/Virginia. He also says that they dug it out to about 150 feet, which is also incorrect. The 1971 Triton excavation was able to dig a shaft to a depth of 235 feet. What is said to be on Assateague island is the legendary lost Spanish galleon La Galga, not the Money Pit.

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.
