Bones

The Critic in the Cabernet - S4-E25

Factual error: Temperance Brennan is examining the bones of the victim and mentions she wants to have a baby. She starts examining the tibia, mentions the she wants to have a baby, then says "capitulum" while still looking at the tibia. In actuality, the capitulum is on the distal epiphysis of the humerus, not the tibia. (00:06:25)

The End in the Beginning - S4-E26

Factual error: Near the end, as Bones is typing her book, she hits the key to erase it - and all the text disappears from the screen (later, she says it deleted the whole book). No software allows a single keystroke to erase all current content (if all text had been selected first, then yes, a DEL keystroke would have done it - but nothing was selected) - that would be a feature too risky to allow in any commercial software package.

Factual error: Dr. Wexler is killed in his flat in Oxford, yet the the fire engine outside his property is marked as being from the London Fire Brigade rather than the Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

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.
