NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Stakeout - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When he hands Tony the autopsy report, Ducky has hair falling over his forehead, then combed back, then over his forehead again repeatedly from shot to shot. (00:07:15)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Other mistake: Season 5, Episode 12, "Stakeout": The picture on McGee's camera phone is just wrong. It shows not just the man in front of him, but it also shows a hand, holding a camera phone - McGee's camera phone. In other words, the phone is showing a picture of itself and the man, instead of just the man. (00:40:25)

Judgment Day: Part 1 - S5-E18

Factual error: There is a big deal made about Gibbs giving Shepard one of his magazines in the study with La Granoille. It is implied that that magazine was used in the gun to kill La Granoille on his yacht. The magazine he gave her was for his department issued Sig Sauer P228, however, he was killed with a Glock 19. The magazines are not compatible.

Tribes - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: After Ducky finds the needle in the MRI machine it cuts to Gibbs stepping on the bubble wrap, and as Abby happily rolls toward Gibbs, in the two shots facing her the headband magnifiers are flipped down over Abby's eyes, but in the shot facing Gibbs the magnifiers are flipped up over Abby's head.

Bury Your Dead - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: During season 4 when Ziva gets worried about Tony being 'sick', she is researching y. Pestis, and telling Gibbs how worried she is about Tony having tests and the long-term effects of plague. In season 5, first episode, when Ducky comes to tell the group that the body is not Tony because "he didn't have plague", Ziva looks confused and says "before my time?"

In the Zone - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: McGee is looking at a report at the end and we see the page he is looking at has a few lines of text. Nothing much. Camera cuts to a close up of the report and the page is completely different. (00:38:40)
