Untouchable - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Untouchable" (Season 3, episode 20), the camera pans across a line of several anime plushies.

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.

Hiatus: Part 2 - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: The year Gibbs joined NCIS is inconsistent. It is revealed in this episode that he joined the NIS in 1992, the same year it became NCIS. But in the JAG crossover episode "Ice Queen", Gibbs tells Commander Rabb that he has been an agent for 19 years, which suggests that Gibbs joined NIS in 1984. And in "Singled Out" in season 4, McGee mentions that Gibbs has been an agent for roughly 16 years, which would put Gibbs' joining NIS in 1990.
