Bones

The Soldier on the Grave - S1-E21

New this month Plot hole: Bones picks up Jimmy's cigarette butt to get his DNA to rule him out of the murder. However as Jimmy was in the military, his DNA would already be on record. (00:11:15)

The Man in the Fallout Shelter - S1-E9

Plot hole: At first the victim (Careful Lionel) is described as not returning to pick up his new shirt in November 1958, and possessing love letters dated from 1957 through early winter (November) 1958. Booth reports the fallout shelter where Lionel's body was discovered was sealed in 1958. Later Lionel is described as reported missing by his boss in January 1960, and the illegitimate child he fathered was born in 1960 as well. That would mean his boss didn't notice he was gone for over a year, and his pregnant girlfriend was with child for at least 14 months.

The Feet on the Beach - S6-E17

Plot hole: Dr. Filmore stated that he was reading on Thursday May 9th and his arm stopped working. May 9th hasn't been on a Thursday since 2002. Hard to believe that he would be working for almost 10 years with his arms being paralyzed.

Boobra

The Shot in the Dark - S8-E15

Plot hole: Angela comes into the autopsy room to inform Hodgins and Cam that Brennan is awake. Cam says that Brennan said the entry wound was cold and Hodgins comes up with the ice bullet theory. But how did Cam know what Brennan said about the cold if she didn't already know Brennan was awake?

The Secret in the Service - S11-E17

Plot hole: The chute is supposed to be so narrow that it injured the Secret Service agent's shoulder, but is wide enough for Hodgins to fit down comfortably in a sitting position.

The Recluse in the Recliner - S9-E24

Plot hole: In the beginning of the episode Booth is brought in by ambulances because he was shot. The episode flashes back and follows back through the events leading up to that. At the end of the episode he is arrested and accused of murdering 3 FBI agents who were coming "to serve warrants." In actuality Delta Operatives had tried to kill Booth. If Booth had been picked up at the scene of the battle by paramedics, the medics would have seen the dead bodies of the operatives in their gear and been able to easily prove Booth didn't just murder 3 agents. Furthermore, the medics on the scene would not just ignore the destroyed house and dead bodies. They would have called local PD and Booth would again be off the hook. (00:01:00 - 00:46:00)

Mona Wheeler

The Woman at the Airport - S1-E10

Plot hole: The surgical instrument that killed 'Susan' was the same one used on her jaw during her plastic surgery. 'Leslie" would not have been able to get the instrument to use to murder her and then put it back in the case, since it was still in the office in the case when Bones and Booth came to get it.

Boobra

The End in the Beginning - S4-E26

Plot hole: We learn that Agent Booth has a brain tumor that has been causing him to hallucinate. One of the hallucinations mentioned was Parker in "The Hero in the Hold." At the end of the episode, Dr. Brennan both sees and speaks to Parker in the cemetery. Agent Booth believed Parker to be a ghost, and we were to believe that Dr. Brennan had unknowingly had a paranormal experience.

Professor Plum

The Gunk in the Garage - S8-E3

Plot hole: When doing the investigation they go to the construction site and speak to the foreman who is absolutely fine. However at the end, the foreman is unstable on his feet with a head injury. He should have been unstable when they first spoke to him.

The Drama in the Queen - S9-E23

Plot hole: The bullet that killed the victim had plastic associated with the wound. This was explained by the fact that the bullet that killed the victim hit a lane divider as it entered the water, but at the end of the episode it was discovered that the bullet was fired from under the water, negating the possibility of it hitting a lane divider at the surface.

The Doom in the Boom - S11-E10

Plot hole: Dr. Vizeri leaves the Jeffersonian months prior to this episode (confirmed in the episode) however, after turning up unannounced he still has his work jacket. It is unlikely his jacket would still be there. (00:20:05)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It is not unreasonable to assume it was simply put into storage rather than being thrown away. It was perfectly usable and could have been used by another member of staff if theirs was unavailable.

Would seem unlikely given that they have their names on.

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.
