Self Control - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Daisy is hugging Jemma after proving they're both human, Daisy's right arm is hooked entirely around Jemma's neck. There's an angle change and a lens flare (possibly to help cover the cut) and Daisy's right arm is now at 90°, with her hand on Jemma's left shoulder. (00:21:15)

Purpose in the Machine - S3-E2

Factual error: When examining the sand, Bobbi states "According to carbon dating..." Fitz finishes by saying "It's a billion years older than the earth." However, carbon dating is only good at determining the age of something to about 60,000 years old. The only thing carbon dating could tell about the sand is that it is 60,000 years old or older. It certainly couldn't determine that the sand was 5 billion years old.

Chosen answer: Coulson believes he was resuscitated then sent to Tahiti to recuperate. "A magical place," he calls it. But in the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." episode "The Magical Place", Coulson, through a mind-reading machine, learns that he was treated by S.H.I.E.L.D. and a fake memory of Tahiti was placed as a "mask" of sorts over the painful memory of the operation, which involved a drug seemingly of alien origin to repair the damage, coupled with a lot of morally dubious surgery.
