Corrected entry: The episode deals with the murder of a Navy admiral and the cab driver transporting him through Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC. Late in the episode, the investigators try to get a lead on another cab driver by tapping into the records from taxi meters. The problem is, DC cabs don't yet have meters. Congress banned them in 1933, but legislation passed this year now gives the DC government authority to install meters. And in fact, just days before this episode aired in Nov 2007, DC's mayor announced plans to switch from the zone system to meters by April 2008.
Corrected entry: About halfway through, they start investigating for fellow Marines who fought with a suspect in the Pacific. One them had died of a heart attack recently after getting a pair of aces. Dinozzo says he doubled down on them and got two queens for double blackjack. You don't double down on aces, you split them to get one card on each. If you doubled down, you would get only one card and it would be only one hand. A queen would have given him 12-22, which would be a 12.terry s
Corrected entry: When Palmer has shot the bad guy chasing Ducky and himself, and after he empties the clip of the Beretta (although it could be a Taurus, as they are almost identical), he continues to pull the trigger and you can hear clicks as though the hammer is being actuated. With semi-automatic weapons such as these the slide cocks the hammer from gas expansion as the shell casing is ejected from the gun. Once the clip is empty, the slide remains open (as is seen in the scene), the hammer is left in a retracted position, and the trigger is disengaged. The trigger cannot be pulled, the hammer does not move, and therefore no sound can be made.
Corrected entry: While Tony, Ziva and their witness are on the plane viewing Tony's Paris photos, a man (a steward?) walks across the scene (in the background). He is walking across the width of the plane, looking down the aisle, at a normal walking pace that would smack him into the wall three feet in front of him. It's apparent that there must be an opening in that wall he's aiming for, as there would be on a set.DavidRTurner
Corrected entry: Tony enters NCIS, and Ziva informs him that Gibbs wants them in MTAC. As they reach the lobby, Tony, who is holding a mocha soy latte (probably a venti), is informed that drinks are forbidden in MTAC, so he gifts a passerby with it. However, in many previous episodes, both Gibbs and the previous Director, Jenny Shepard, have enjoyed their caffeine-laced coffees while reposing in the comfortable seating in MTAC.
Corrected entry: The uniform worn by the gentleman claiming to be a Royal Marine (later revealed as an MI6 agent), has two mistakes. His "Sam Browne", the leather straps worn over his number 2 dress, (Khaki uniform), should be brown, not black. Also, on his shoulder where his designation of rank is. Here it is made of cloth, it should be a metal crown. Strange the "British Navy" crew did not notice this.BeauNidle
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, when Gibbs and Todd leave the toilet cubicle, she tells him of the problem in the press section and starts towards it. He tells her to cover the president. He had no way of knowing that the Secret Service had left the President unprotected.
Corrected entry: When La Grenouille is in the plane looking at the photos of Tony and Dr. Jeanne Benoit, he questions his associate as they discuss hurting her to get to Tony. At the end, we discover that La Grenouille is Jeanne's father. It doesn't make sense that he would sit there calmly while someone threatens his daughter.Boobra
Corrected entry: If the ship is that top secret that the Navy commander had to get permission from his superiors to brief the director of NCIS on the ship, its mission, and what it might be carrying, there is NO WAY, NO HOW that the United States Navy would allow an Israeli Mossad agent on board that ship.
