NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Untouchable - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Untouchable" (Season 3, episode 20), the camera pans across a line of several anime plushies. When the shot then goes wide, several of the plushies have either been re-arranged or removed completely, including a pink plush and the Kyogre plush. It also seems as though there are two Miroku plushies in the scene as well, one near the middle and one off to the side of the left pillow. (00:04:10)

Hiatus: Part 1 - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When DiNozzo is watching the ship through the binoculars at the beginning, the film is run in reverse. The sailor smoking on the deck is the giveaway, as the smoke he's blowing is going into his mouth. (00:00:15)

Silver War - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When in Ducky and Jimmy are in autopsy alone, there is a cameraman in the reflection of the body cooler wall. (00:18:15)

Nicholaus Cummins

Kill Ari: Part 2 - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While Tony and Ziva are outside Ziva's hotel eating pizza, Ziva is eating the pizza in one shot with the slice in the shot, in the shot directly before this and directly after, the pizza is no where to be found and she is no longer chewing.

Boobra

Honor Code - S3-E7

Other mistake: At the end of the episode Gibbs has a flashback where his daughter is helping with a boat. She is in an NCIS shirt, but Gibbs had no association with NCIS while she was alive.

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)

Light Sleeper - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When McGee and Ziva are headed toward the sensitivity training seminar, and they notice Tony hitting on a woman at the top of the stairwell, Tony has a document in his right hand, which then jumps to his left, and then back to his right. (00:02:30)

Untouchable - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: When the Lieutenant is explaining how her gun was in the victim's house, the camera pans behind Gibbs. Pay close attention and you can see a very faint shadow move across his back. Since we see there is nothing behind him on numerous occasions, it can only be part of the film crew. (00:18:20)
