Sharif Returns - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Gibbs chases Shariff into the railway station restroom, Gibbs' position on the wall changes, his gun hand passes the corner of the wall at least three times. Also as he starts to fall to the floor, the long shot from low angle close to the urinals shows Gibbs holding the gun with both hands and they are moving to his right, his left shoulder going into he wall. At the cut, the gun is in his right hand only and moving across his body to the left and his right shoulder is now going into the wall. The shot cuts to Shariff, who has moved about a foot to his right during the cut, then cuts back to both Gibbs and Shariff, Shariff has returned to his original position and the gun has moved to Gibbs left hand, although we don't really see the gun until he falls and Shariff picks it up, thus ruling out the possibility of the gun being dropped before he falls. (We do hear the gun hit the floor as he falls.)

Sharif Returns - S4-E13

The screen shot of the locations in the time line also change locations. The 9:30 and 10:00 individual locations show up in the Georgetown University area but when they zoom out to show all three locations, the two time location now show the George Washington University, Foggy Bottom area of D. C., and it shows Tim's residence as being in Arlington National Cemetery.

xx:xx:xx

Sharif Returns - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When Abby is talking to Gibbs about getting a tattoo, he goes from looking at her computer screen to her in between shots. There's a straight cut, so there was no time for him to turn his head.
