Bones

The Verdict in the Story - S3-E13

Corrected entry: While Bones is trying to convince Angela to testify, Angela refuses on the grounds that she does not want to be responsible for Bones' father being executed. Bones then states that whether her father gets executed will be up to a jury. However, Bones' father is being tried in the District of Columbia, and D.C. abolished the death penalty in 1957, so there could be no chance of him being executed at all. It can't simply be a character mistake, because they were present at the beginning of the trial, and if the death penalty were possible those present in court would have heard the judge instructing the jury about it.

Correction: The case is being heard in the District Court of D.C., as this is a Federal Case due to Bones' father being accused of killing an FBI deputy director. Killing a federal law enforcement officer can carry the death penalty. Also, the judge would not instruct the jury on the death penalty during the merits phase of the trial. If convicted, then the judge would instruct the jury on the death penalty when charging the jury and delivering instructions prior to their deliberations as to sentence after the penalty phase was completed.

The Pain in the Heart - S3-E15

Corrected entry: When Bones storms into Booth's bathroom to confront him, the clock behind her right shoulder changes from 10:05 to 2:05.

Correction: Actually, there are 2 clocks on the wall, one set at 10:05 and the other at 2:05. They can both be seen in the same shot for several moments in the scene. It is not explained WHY they are set differently, but that is not relevant to the plot. (Time zones, perhaps).

Mummy in the Maze - S3-E5

Corrected entry: Megan is wearing the exact same shirt in the picture that she is wearing when we see her in the room full of snakes. The photo must have been taken the same day they filmed.

Correction: I have pictures of me wearing the same shirt on different days. Just because she is wearing the same shirt from the picture doesn't make it a mistake.

Mummy in the Maze - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When we first see Megan in the room full of snakes, she is wearing black sneakers but in the close up of her feet and the subsequent shots she has on black ballet flats.

Correction: Megan always has the ballet slippers on, at no point is she wearing sneakers.

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.
