Dexter

Do You Take Dexter Morgan? - S3-E12

Other mistake: The marriage certificate for Rita's first marriage shows her date of birth as 04-19-1989 and Dexter states she married at 16. The marriage date is 08-16-1989, when she would have been 4 months old. She also would only be 17 at the start of the series (2006) if she was born in 1989. (00:13:45)

The Angel of Death - S6-E5

Other mistake: While Dexter's searching for info on Travis Marshall on his laptop, he opens the DMV Records window with an image of Marshall's driver license, and in the closeup at the bottom of the license it reads "Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobiety test required by law," with the word "sobriety" missing the letter "r." Additionally, under the image of the license it reads "Issued: 10-12-2006", but on the actual license image it reads, "DOB: 11-24-1977, Issued: 09-23-1990, Expires: 09-23-2012." So that means Marshall was not even 13 yrs old when he got his license, and the license won't expire for 22 years. Also, when Brother Sam knocks on the door Dexter clicks back onto the MOA website, and if you care to pause the screen note the word "Exibit" is missing the letter "h." (00:18:50)

Crocodile - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Dexter is running Matt Chambers' fingerprint though his computer, he brings up four newspaper articles where the names Matt Brewster and Matt Rasmussen are used. In the final article, the headline reads "Matt Rasmussen of South Boston arrested", but the body of the article uses the name Matt Brewster exclusively. Other than the first few words, the text of the final article is identical to that of the previous one. (00:33:50)

Dirty Harry - S4-E5

Other mistake: When Lundy is shot and falls to the ground, there is no visible injury even though he is facing the camera. Later, Masuka says he was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the neck. The shooter was facing him. We should have seen the blood.

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Other mistake: Doaks says he saw the man's gun and chased him, lots of questions arise about what happened, but no-one mentions how a cop has no right to ask a person about a gun they have on them without probable cause. Doaks has no reason to even go after the guy.

Suggested correction: Florida is not an open carry state, so if the man was displaying a gun, the cop had probable cause to pursue and question. Even if the man had a permit to carry a weapon, per Florida law, that weapon must remain concealed. If the cop could see the gun, it was a violation of the law and the cop could not only question, but arrest him.

Our Father - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Debra is talking about her new haircut, she states that she has changed her hair "for the first time since she was 8." However in various flashbacks throughout the show she has drastically different hairstyles from her 'usual'.

Take It - S5-E8

Other mistake: Lumen agrees to meet her former fiancé Owen at noon. When they meet up, the sun setting in the background indicates that it's evening. (00:16:12 - 00:23:39)

Lost Boys - S4-E10

Other mistake: There's no way Arthur could have known Scott was 10 years old. In fact, it's highly likely he would not have known any of the boys he killed were 10 years old.

The Getaway - S4-E12

Other mistake: The tub Rita was found in was full of water, to the rim. Volume displacement dictates that when Arthur got out of the tub the water level would have dropped to well below the tub's rim.

Dirty Harry - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Dexter listens to Officer Lundy's tape recording, we hear Lundy say that the Trinity killer's weight is 190 to 200 pounds. When we saw him recording that, he said 200 to 220 pounds.

Those Kinds of Things - S6-E1

[MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" playing.]
Former Classmate: Come on, Dexter. It's hammer time.
Dexter: [internally] I have no idea what hammer time is. Or how it differs from regular time.

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Question: The DNA test is a match, but later in the 2-3rd season we discover that Harry (foster father) had an affair with the real mother. Is Harry the real father and takes him but not his brother in because of that or not?

Answer: No, Harry is not the real father. While he did have an affair with Dexter's biological mother (Laura Moser), this was when she was his C.I. Dexter was already born at that point.
