E Ho'oko Kuleana - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: Steve chases Jesse into a building. She opens a heavy door to the outside, slowing her down, and as she goes through he's about 10 feet behind her. We then cut to her running along a walkway and he's somehow dropped back another 20 feet.

Pa Make Loa - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When he picks up the NCIS agents at the airfield, Danny drives his car up behind the plane and parks very close to it. As the three go back to his car however, it is parked at least fifty meters away and parallel to the plane.

I Helu Pu - S2-E16

Character mistake: Owing to a common misconception, several people in the episode claim that the consulate is Russian soil. Foreign diplomatic missions are awarded special privileges, but they are not considered sovereign territory of the represented state.

He Kane Hewa'ole - S1-E14

Factual error: Contrary to what Steve says, the U.S. do have an extradition treaty with France, which has been in effect since 2002.

Ua Malo'o Ka Wai - S7-E21

Character mistake: In episode 6-6 Steve explains to Danny that a 'klick' means a kilometre, 0.62 of mile, to which Danny replies: "Oh, thank you, G.I. Jerk, for the pedantic, uh I know what a klick is." In this episode, when Steve again uses the term 'klick', Danny replies: "You know, no-one can understand you when you say stupid things like klicks.", which prompts Kono and Chin to give the exact same explanation as Steve did in season 6.

Kanaka Hahai - S6-E18

Factual error: In episode 17, Danny's Camaro is subjected to a number of bursts from a mini-gun, riddling it from stem to stern. In episode 18, Danny's daughter mentions that he had just had it repaired. There is no way an insurance company would not total that vehicle, since it would require replacing or using "Bondo" on virtually every body panel, not to mention mechanical repairs.

Waiwai - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: The Russian spy Anna Novick picks up Dalton in a Silver sedan and continues into a shootout. The Sedan's identifying badge (Hyundai) switches between being present and not, throughout the entire scene. (00:23:50 - 00:27:25)

Ua 'o'oloku ke anu I na mauna - S6-E3

Other mistake: The victim has been dead for six weeks, but when Steve and Lou enter his home, the printer is still printing bills. (00:19:35)

Ka No'eau - S5-E4

Audio problem: In the final scene Danny executes the man who killed his brother. Danny is armed with a snub nosed revolver. When he pulls the trigger, the sound of a shell casing bouncing on the floor is heard. A revolver does not eject empty shell casings.

Lapa'au - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Steve and Danny go to Dr. Yang's office and find evidence of a struggle, they follow a blood trail out the back door. Danny starts to put gloves on as he stoops down to pick up a wallet on the ground. He only has one glove on before the camera angle switches to the view from behind him, then suddenly he's wearing gloves on both hands as he reaches for the wallet.

He Kane Hewa'ole - S1-E14

Factual error: Kono is driving a 4-cylinder Chevy Cruze in pursuit of a V-8 Mustang, and manages to stay right behind it.

Kanalu Hope Loa - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kono shoots the bad guy who then falls off the balcony and lands on the hood of a truck, his head is toward the front of the truck. Later when they bring out the female leader of the gang the guy is lying across the hood.

A'ale Ma'a Wau - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: A Texas Ranger spreads peanut butter on a suspect in a sugar cane field. The suspect is tied up on the ground and mostly on lying his back and right side. He spreads the peanut butter on his left arm, head and chest. In a later scene, the suspect is taking a shower and you see lots of peanut butter on his back, both his arms and the back of his head.

Kanalua - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At the scattering of Malia's ashes at sea, Steve takes off his lei and in the next shot he takes it off again.

Stripey

Ko'olauloa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the surfers are in the bay to spread Ian's ashes. Ben lets go of Kono's hand and is handed the urn with the ashes by the man to his right. He removes the lid of the urn and hands only the lid back. Yet in the overhead shot immediately following, the urn is back on the board of the man to Ben's right, and there is nothing on Ben's board. He's holding Kono's hand again. In the next shot, he is tipping the ashes from the urn.

Stripey

Wahine'inoloa - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Steve is talking to a female suspect. In one shot, her hair is off her face and the light source is strong from the left. Next shot, her hair is almost covering her right eye and the light is more diffuse and not as strong.

Wahine'inoloa - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Steve and Danny are talking to a murder suspect. She steps out of her office holding a folder in her hand. Shots alternate between her holding the folder and having her arms crossed.

Suggested correction: The name of McGarrett's father is not Jack, it's John.

Tanngrisnir

Maybe not literally, but it's a common nickname for people named John. See John F. Kennedy and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
