The Birds and the Bees Affair - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: A swarm of bees blackens the windshield of Solo & Illya's car. We see them in all the interior shots, but every time it cuts to an exterior view, the windshield is perfectly clear. (00:04:15)

Continuity mistake: Mozart and his henchmen invade the honey shop. Illya tosses a chair at them. One man falls. Cut to Illya firing his gun, then back to Mozart - and the man who fell is suddenly in a different place and position on the floor. (00:41:00)

The Birds and the Bees Affair - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: Tavia writes a receipt and hands it to Mozart. She still has the red pen in her hand until the shot reverses angles. Then the pen instantly jumps from her hand to the counter several inches away. (00:12:00)

Napoleon Solo: My name is Napoleon Solo. I'm an enforcement agent in Section Two here. That's operations and enforcement.
Illya Kuryakin: I am Illya Kuryakin. I am also an enforcement agent. Like my friend Napoleon, I go and I do whatever I am told to by our chief.
Alexander Waverly: Hmm? Oh, yes. Alexander Waverly. Number One in Section One. In charge of this, our New York headquarters. It's from here that I send these young men on their various missions.

Trivia: Thrush, U.N.C.L.E.'s nemesis organization, was an international bad-guy conglomerate with the single-minded goal of taking over the world. Though "Thrush" was never an acronym on the show itself, U.N.C.L.E. novelist David McDaniel assigned it a meaning that became fan canon: he called it the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity. That pretty much described Thrush's nefarious ambitions to a T.

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Question: Why would Solo compare the descending elevator to an Eaton's department store, when these only existed in Canada?

Answer: He must have ridden in an Eaton's store elevator while he was in Canada at some point. For some reason, this elevator reminds him of it. The show's original concept had Solo being a Canadian, so this may be a minor nod to that fact.
