The Bridge of Lions Affair (2) - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Illya's car collides with Madame de Sala's. But it's very obvious that the cars don't actually strike each other, and later shots of her vehicle show no damage at all where it was supposedly hit. (00:26:00)

Continuity mistake: At the end of Part 1, Sir Norman enters the rejuvenation device and immediately gets younger. As Part 2 begins, however, he emerges from the machine looking the same, and Dr. Gritsky says that his rejuvenation will occur gradually over the next few days. (00:03:30)

The Bridge of Lions Affair (2) - S2-E21

Factual error: Dr. Gritsky over-rejuvenates himself at the end and turns into a young boy - who for some inexplicable reason still has the adult doctor's mustache. (00:47:00)

The Bridge of Lions Affair (2) - S2-E21

Factual error: While Solo prepares the explosive, Waverly's line to Joanna is, "If you and I are wise like Lot's wife, we'd better not look." The scriptwriter got this backwards. Lot's wife was unwise and did look, and turned into a pillar of salt. (00:41:00)

The Bridge of Lions Affair (2) - S2-E21

Other mistake: The title of Act II, "Thrush Flaps It's Wings," is misspelled/mispunctuated. The possessive "its" does not take an apostrophe, so it should read, "Thrush Flaps Its Wings." (00:13:10)

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.

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.
