Heroes - S10-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Champ falls forward, he gets wine all over his sweater - you can see it when Potter and Hawkeye lift him. After the cut, his sweater is clean again. Considering the position of the stains relative to Hawk's hand, at least some stains would be visible. (00:08:10)

Bottle Fatigue - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Klinger refuses to give Winchester the letter from his sister, Winchester screams at him, Klinger jumps and falls to the ground next to Winchester's bunk. After the cut, Klinger is sitting next to Hawkeye's bunk (note the airplane seat in the background instead of the door) and Winchester is holding the letter in his hand opening it. Rightfully it should be on the floor next to Winchester's bunk. If you look closely, you can see it flying out of Klinger's hand towards the door. (00:16:25)

There is Nothing Like a Nurse - S3-E10

Stupidity: Hawkeye and Trapper park a jeep over a foxhole to trap Maj. Burns in it. While it is certainly possible to trap somebody in a hole with, say, a sports car, an off-road vehicle like a jeep is particularly unsuited for the task - the chassis has so much ground clearance, even a quite fat man could squeeze out past it. You can even see the gap when the camera cuts to Major Burns screaming "Let me out!" (00:18:10)

As You Were - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Hawkeye pulls the blanket over Frank's right arm, then pulls his left arm up to take his pulse. In the following closeup Frank's right arm is uncovered, and the blanket is below the screen. (00:18:45)

Patent 4077 - S6-E16

Plot hole: When Hawkeye and BJ buy Margaret a new ring, it takes a typo in the inscription to give them away - which makes both of them and Mr. Shin almost clairvoyant. Not only did they somehow guess Margaret's ring size, but Mr Shin - phew, Houdini and Uri Geller together don't hold a candle to this guy - actually somehow divined the exact type and font of the inscription in the original so perfectly that Margaret actually only spotted the difference from the missing 'n.'

Hey, Doc - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: When Radar carries the field phone from Col. Potter's desk over to Hawkeye who is squatting in the corner, the phone doesn't have a phone line attached. It is an EE-8 Military Field Phone, which is a wired device, not a radio - even if Radar elsewhere says he has somebody "on the radio" when in fact he is using an EE-8. (00:17:35)

Dear Ma - S4-E16

Plot hole: In this episode, Maj. Burns is trying to avoid the foot inspection because he has nail polish on his toenails. Having access to a fully outfitted hospital dispensory, he'd be able to remove that nail polish in a minute.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Rosie said she took them away AFTER they began throwing them at the dartboard. Therefore there would be some in and around the dartboard. And since Klinger and BJ were drunk, they likely wouldn't have thought to grab them from the board.

When we later see them in Col. Potter's office, they are quite capable of semi-coherent reasoning, so them not realizing they could grab more darts from the dartboard isn't really in sync with that later behoviour.

Continuity mistake: When the race begins between the staff car and the hot rod, they immediately pull away from the convoy, as is logical. However, in the next shot the convoy is right behind the staff car again - which is still accelerating racing the hot rod. When the convoy pulls off the main road towards Area 51, the convoy again is right behind the staff car. (00:01:40)

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Other mistake: When Hawkeye drives the damaged tank out of the camp, the front MG is missing. There's not a mark on the armor surrounding the MG port that might suggest it was destroyed in battle. Why would a tank in combat just be missing one of its MGs?

Soldier of the Month - S4-E12

Trivia: When Igor salutes Hawkeye and BJ as they enter the Post-Op, he bangs the stove, making a "Doinggg" sound. Together with the crisp parade-ground salute, it's really hilarious once you have spotted it. If you wonder whether or not it was deliberate, you can almost see Igor slipping something into his pocket as he exits. (00:04:35)

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Factual error: Henry says that every Wednesday, his wife drives up Route 26 with some friends. US. Route 26 starts out in Nebraska and leads to Oregon. The closest thing that could be described as a "Route 26" would be the road leading from Princeton, IL to Dixon, IL which begins 85 miles from Bloomington. The writer probably meant Route 24, which passes about 20 miles north of Bloomington. (00:03:10)

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: In the shot where the horse kicks in the door, there's actually two shots - a kick, a quick cut, another kick. If you look closely, you can see how the hoof of one of the horse-leg props breaks off during the first kick. The second kick is performed by one leg only. If you look really closely - and probably use the slow-motion function - you can even make out the hand of the one wielding the leg through the hole made in the first kick. (00:18:10)
