NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

SWAK - S2-E22

Character mistake: When Kate mentions James Bond, and DiNozzo lists the actors who have played him, he forgets Timothy Dalton. As a self-proclaimed film buff, that's not a mistake he would make.

Family Secret - S3-E16

Character mistake: When Gibbs tells William Danforth that the body in autopsy isn't his son, he says, "Not according to AFIS." AFIS is the fingerprint database; since the body was identified using DNA, Gibbs meant to say "CODIS." (00:13:50)

Under Covers - S3-E8

Character mistake: In one scene, Jenny refers to "the former Czech Republic." That is the state's current name; it was formerly a part of Czechoslovakia.

SWAK - S2-E22

Character mistake: In isolation, Tony mentions John Travolta and says that he's known as the "king of cool." That nickname referred to Steve McQueen, not Travolta. (00:15:10)

Bete Noire - S1-E16

Character mistake: Ari tells Ducky and Gerald that if they lie or he suspects them of lying, he will shoot them in a ball-and-socket joint. Ari later shoots Gerald in the shoulder and mentions that next time it would be his knee. The knee is not a ball-and-socket joint. It is a hinge joint. The only other ball-and-socket joint in the human body is located in the hip. Ari is an educated Doctor and should know the difference. (00:24:00)

Iceman - S4-E18

Character mistake: In the scene, where Jeanne tells Tony that he never said he loves her, besides after sexual activities. This is not true. In episode 15 "Friends and lovers" Tony ends a phone call saying "I love you."

Lost at Sea - S10-E4

Character mistake: During the interrogation of Petty Officer Sparks, JAG Officer Lieutenant Nora Patel says "Lieutenant Sparks has a right to legal counsel." (00:21:50)

Chasing Ghosts - S10-E20

Character mistake: Ducky states that the Romans believed that the vein of 4th finger on the left hand ran directly to the heart, thus, logically, it was the "ring" finger. However, there is no evidence that the belief originated with the Romans, nor that the 4th finger has a special vein...the fingers in the hand have a similar vein structure.

Agent Afloat - S6-E2

Character mistake: McGee seeks Director Vance's permission to hack into the Sea Hawk's computer system. He says that in the past four months, he hasn't worked any crime scenes, etc. This is incorrect, as near the start of the episode, he and Ziva go to an officer's home to advise his wife that he is missing. They discover her murdered and then the team, including McGee, are working the crime scene.
