The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sherlock is backstage at the circus and finds the yellow spray paint, he draws a line on the mirror. In the next shot, the line he drew is completely different (and in fact is more of a squiggle). (01:07:40)

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When they are watching for vases, the auction website has no proper domain. It is loaded locally from the C:\ drive. (00:55:00)

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the end of the episode, the evil Shan is texting with (most likely) Moriarity. She is sitting at a desk facing a wall and yet the laser targeting ray appears directly on her forehead, which could only come through a window directly opposite her.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sherlock and Watson first get to the bank, the time for New York is 7:45, then when Sherlock is trying to find out who the message is for, the time for New York is 7:20.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: The banker shoots himself with a Sig 226R. When you see it lying on the bed it has a screw missing from the grip. In the first episode, Watson has a gun in his desk drawer. It is a Sig 226R also with a screw missing from the grip. Obviously they only have one prop gun.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: While Watson and Sherlock talk about the deceased banker and the crime scene photographer takes pictures of the dead body you can see the "corpse" breathing, as the buttons on his waistcoat are moving. (00:14:50)

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When you see Sherlock and Watson in the museum, Sherlock leaves and nearly gets shot. You see him dive behind the large statue, which moves. That's unusual for a large statue, but looking closer, you can see there are wheels attached to the base. (00:49:35)

A Study in Pink - S1-E1

John Watson: I just met a friend of yours.
Sherlock Holmes: A friend?
John Watson: An enemy.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh. Which one?
John Watson: Your arch-enemy, according to him. Do people have arch-enemies?
Sherlock Holmes: Did he offer you money to spy on me?
John Watson: Yes.
Sherlock Holmes: Did you take it?
John Watson: No...
Sherlock Holmes: Pity, we could have split the fee. Think it through next time.

Question: Which episode contains the line "I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you?" Google searches turn up nothing but the quote itself, and no further information on the episode or the rest of the scene. If anyone knows the line that led up to it, that would be even better.

Chosen answer: That line of dialogue has never actually been spoken in any of the Sherlock episodes, during seasons 1-4. However, that line is written in someone's fan-fiction story online, where it's said by Sherlock and directed at Anderson.
