Love Boat - S14-E4

Visible crew/equipment: While Gibbs and Alex are in the stateroom with Kasey and Curt, when Kasey tells them about the polyps on her vocal chords, the microphone can be seen hovering in front of Kasey, at the bottom of the screen. (00:28:45)

Home of the Brave - S14-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When the couple walk into the convenience store the man leads the blindfolded woman, and when they stop in front of the display coolers, their two yellow and orange tape marks are visible on the floor in this shot (the tape marks are gone in the following overhead shot). (00:10:00)

Enemy Combatant - S14-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While Gibbs is in Forensics with Abby and McGee, they inform him about the data recovery from Commander Reza's car. When Abby tells Gibbs that someone hated technology more than him, Abby says, "Mind blown," and at the start of the next shot, the boom mic dips into view above Gibbs. (00:21:00)

Keep Going - S14-E13

Other mistake: While panning the front of Gibbs' home, the roof of one vehicle and the windshield/passenger mirror of a second can be seen behind the gate/fence in Gibbs' driveway behind his truck. He lives alone and does not share a driveway with other homes. In reality, Gibbs' home is located at 2647 S. Magnolia Ave in LA, and the vehicles likely belong to the real residents/homeowner. (00:39:20)

Ian Hunt

A Bowl of Cherries - S14-E20

Continuity mistake: After Marie's smoke alarm incident Marie starts to talk about Alex's dad coming to dinner, and when Alex walks away from the bouquet of flowers the ribbon has been removed from the bouquet, but next shot it's once again tied around the bouquet. (00:31:50)

Something Blue - S14-E23

Visible crew/equipment: At the tuxedo shop, after Tim's phone conversation with Delilah, when Ellie says, "I guess that's that, hey decision made," in the next shot facing Tim (he's standing in front of a trifold mirror), the reflection of the boom mic is visible at the top, right corner of the screen. (00:01:55)

Something Blue - S14-E23

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter lands on the helo deck there's a white aiming circle with a lineup line at the center, but after Gibbs and Palmer exit the helicopter the flight deck is again seen in a long shot, and the white lineup line is gone. (00:03:30)

Something Blue - S14-E23

Continuity mistake: When Gibbs and McGee are alone in the kitchen, in the closeups of McGee when he raises his left hand (such as when he takes the watch from Gibbs) he is not wearing a ring, but in the consecutive shots of the duo McGee is wearing a ring on his left hand (also odd, since it looks like McGee's wedding band). (00:39:10)

Something Blue - S14-E23

Continuity mistake: Gibbs holds up his father's WW2 era Hamilton watch and gives it to McGee. While McGee holds the watch to read the engraving on the caseback, the buckle strap is in McGee's right hand. In the closeup of the caseback the crown is at the bottom (which would mean the buckle strap is in McGee's left hand), but in the two shots facing McGee the crown is at the top (which would also make the engraving upside down while McGee reads it). (00:40:20)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Gibbs: I heard you quit, Agent Todd.
Kate Todd: Happy news travels fast. Yes, I resigned. It was the right thing to do.
Gibbs: Yep. Pull that crap at NCIS, I won't give you a chance to resign.
Kate Todd: Is that a job offer?

Agent Afloat - S6-E2

Trivia: Season 6, "Agent Afloat": Maybe real aircraft carriers posing as fictional ones shouldn't let viewers see their registration numbers. When this episode aired, producers heard from several "carrier purists" complaining that CVN74 is the U.S.S. John C. Stennis, not the (non-existent) Seahawk.
