Clearance Sale at the Black Market - S4-E1

Character mistake: When Hogan addresses him, Major Kiegel sends the girls away from his table by saying "Raus!" The word "raus" used as an imperative literally means "out" in the sense of "leave the room" - he would be ordering the girls to leave the tavern, or at least the tap room in this case. It's not correct German to use it to send somebody away from a table.

Revealing mistake: After Kiegel shoots out the bulb the light takes a couple of extra seconds to fade out.

Revealing mistake: The Major goes to shoot out the light that the boys have turned on so Kinch can get the pictures. The first shot is angled too low to hit the bulb, but there is no impact on the front of the door's crosspiece; the smoke and dust comes from behind it. The second shot gets the bulb, but there is no muzzle flash, just sound. Also, there is no impact mark on the brick wall behind the bulb.

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is talking to Kiegel, Hogan's eyes are level as he looks across the table at Kiegel. After Kiegel says "Not good enough!", the camera cuts to a close up of Hogan, and he's now looking up as if the Major is standing. A moment later, the Major stands and leaves.
