Dexter

Let's Give the Boy a Hand - S1-E4

Factual error: When Dexter and Doakes are looking at the severed foot wearing a soccer cleat, Dexter states, "The foot was severed between the tarsus and the metatarsus." However, the foot was severed proximal to the tarsus, through the tibia and fibula. The cut was easily too high to be between the tarsus and metatarsus.

Continuity mistake: Dexter goes to the morgue to see the body of his father. When he first sees the body, he bends down, and the clock behind him reads 4:11. A moment later when he stands back up the clock is at 4:17. A couple of minutes later the clock is at 4:01.

Do You See What I See? - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: Deb's daily drive is an E46 '03-'06 BMW 3 series. In this episode she is in a car accident and when Dexter shows up at the salvage yard to check the vehicle he is led to an E36 '95-'99 3 series.

00:18:45 - 00:36:25

Easy as Pie - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Dexter and Rita are having dinner at Miguel's house, his wife drops a glass. She sets 2 other glasses on the island in the kitchen. After a cut to another shot the 2 glasses are now on the counter by the sink, before she bends down and picks up the glass she dropped.

00:39:50

Monkey in a Box - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: In Season 3, Episode 2 during a conversation with Miguel's wife Sylvia, (Syl), and Rita in a kitchen, Syl says that they don't have any children after trying. In this episode, Syl is trying to help Dexter sell his condo and says that she downsized and focused more on "the kids."

Helter Skelter - S7-E9

Factual error: In the beginning while Dexter is on his boat in Miami, you suddenly see mountains in the background, of which there are none in Miami. Also the palms are too high, indicating they are from California. And the worst setting mistake is the Florida tags in front of the cars. Only commercial vehicles have front tags.

Add time

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

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Factual error: When Dexter is in the hospital as a child, the doctor says that Dexter has a very rare blood type, AB negative. Although it's very rare, the people with AB- can receive donor blood with A-, B-, AB- and 0-. AB- is very good blood-type when you need to receive blood. While it is true that hospitals normally have to use AB- because of the complexity of other proteins (and to prevent adverse reactions), in case of an emergency, like Dexter's, and a shortage, a hospital will use a blood type close enough to not likely cause a reaction. In this situation, the hospital would give Dexter O-, B-, or A- instead as blood loss would normally kill a patient long before a suitable donor could be located, called in, admitted to the hospital, and have the transfusion set up.

00:31:00 - 00:32:00

Davor

Teenage Wasteland - S5-E9

Factual error: When Dexter is punching Olivia's father in his left side, he says "That's your liver." Only the liver is on the right side. For a serial killer who routinely dismembers bodies, Dexter should know which side the liver is on.

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.

The Getaway - S4-E12

Plot hole: If we assume that Dexter took off the oil cap while it was still in the shop for Arthur, it still doesn't explain how Dexter got the jump on him when his car (hours later) broke down. Arthur's not shown to stop, but to merely drive for hours on end until night. Arthur's on a barren strip of road with no other cars or traffic to be seen for miles. It cuts from Arthur looking in his engine to Dexter suddenly walking out from behind the Mustang. The only explanation is that Dexter waited in the car with Arthur, which doesn't make very much sense. All this takes place in the last 15 minutes of the finale.

Make Your Own Kind of Music - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: Scene with Deb and Joey having lunch. Their water glasses switch between having ice and lemon wedges, to having no ice and a lemon slice floating at the top.

Shrink Wrap - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Doakes asks Deb "what took her so long" arriving at the first crime scene, Masuka is stood next to him. However, over the course of the conversation Masuka is seen in the background talking to another group inside the house, and in the next shot he is standing back next to Doakes. At the end of the conversation he walks over to the group inside the house.

00:05:30 - 00:06:00

Left Turn Ahead - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Doakes is carrying the packs of cocaine out of the cabin, the position of his arms and the cocaine varies wildly from shot to shot. Notable examples are that the cocaine goes from being arranged in neat, accurate stacks, to being haphazardly and irregularly stacked, and back to neat again. His grip on the cocaine also varies a lot; he starts out with straight arms, then suddenly has a 90-degree bend at the elbows, and back to straight again, all depending om camera angle. All of these changes happen too fast to have been natural, and Doakes is on camera the whole time.

The Angel of Death - S6-E5

Character mistake: Louis Greene, Masuka's new intern, is asked to find the person who purchased Rudy's prosthetic hand. He is unable to do so; however, as a consolation, he says "I installed a modded-up Intel chip to overclock your CPU." You can overclock your CPU, but you don't need another chip to do so.

00:44:00

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."

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.

But in the next shot the game is visible on the screen before disappearing again in the shot afterwards. Additionally, the video game shown is Halo 3, which is only available on Xbox 360. When Miguel 'closes' the game, he is actually alt-tabbing from a "TWVidpla" window to "Plaindesktop.bmp," and a laptop battery indicator is visible.

Season 6 generally

Continuity mistake: In Season 6, Episode 10, Dexter and Harry are in the motel room where Travis was staying (timestamp 1). Dexter decides to post on Gellar's blog (impersonating Gellar), and the screen on the computer shows the post date as Sunday, November 24, preceded by a Sunday, November 20 post. Aren't Sundays supposed to be a week apart? Then in episode 12 (timestamp 2), Travis is in Dexter's apartment and sees the poster for the Noah's Ark school play. The date posted for the play is Saturday, October 8, ie. in the past compared to the earlier episode. Plus If November 24 were on a Sunday, then October 8 should have been on a Tuesday.

Quotes

Isaak Sirko: You didn't kill Victor out of vengeance. I have a feeling you're a different kind of animal. The question is...what kind are you, Dexter Morgan?
Dexter: The kind who hunted your friend down and strapped him to a board and put a plastic bag on his head and crushed his skull with a fire extinguisher. The kind who's gonna do the same thing to you, give or take the fire extinguisher.

Trivia

(POSSIBLE SPOILER) When Masuka brings up the list of doctors authorized to get the M99, Dexter removes his alias note that Dexter's fake alias (used to get the M99 tranquilizer) is Dr. Patrick Bateman. Patrick Bateman is the lead character of "American Psycho". This was most likely an intentional "easter egg" of sorts within the show.
