...And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Danno boards the helicopter wearing a brown suit, but arrives wearing a Hawaiian shirt. When he gets out of the aircraft a few shots later, though, he's back in the brown suit, with no time to have changed.

The Grandstand Play (1) - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: Audrey tells Gregory Peck that on the night the allied forces liberated Amsterdam, she watched a movie the troops screened on the street. But in the flashback to that same event, she falls gravely ill with an infection and isn't able to make it to the film. (01:22:40)

Continuity mistake: In the hospital scene, Audrey's mother is sitting down with the bed table to her left. We see her start to rise, but when the shot cuts, she's suddenly standing at the bedside on the other side of the table, with no time transition included for her to get there naturally. (01:57:30)

The Ransom - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: McGarrett paces in his office, and when the shot cuts to a close-up of his feet, the actor's blocking mark is visible, chalked on the carpet.

Here Today, Gone Tonight - S5-E17

Once Upon A Time (2) - S1-E22

Trivia: McGarrett's address is said, in this episode, to be "404 Piikoi Street." This was in reality the street address for Hawaii Five-O's production offices.

Death with Father - S6-E19

Revealing mistake: The teaser contains footage of a stunt-gone-wrong. The getaway truck smashes into a mock-up police cruiser that has been secured with a chain to pull it back out of the shot. The chain breaks, and is visible trailing from the bumper as the fake cruiser starts an unplanned roll down the hill. (It went on to collide with and damage two real HPD patrol cars rented for the production).

The Jinn Who Clears The Way - S5-E5

Factual error: Danno, who's been a cop long enough to know better, reports to McGarrett that the lab has determined Wong's blood type to be AO. Blood is typed as A, B, AB or O. There is no type AO.

It Crawled Out of the Woodwork - S1-E11

Factual error: When the energy monster kills his entire research staff by stopping their hearts, Dr. Block brings them all back to life (with their minds and personalities intact) by installing pacemakers. But when the heart stops functioning, brain death occurs within minutes. For this to work, he'd not only have to operate on several people simultaneously, he'd also have to be the fastest heart surgeon on Earth. (00:40:00)

Beholder - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: The assassin rips out a magazine page with Leila's photo on it and sets it ablaze with a cigarette lighter. The face in the picture burns while he's still holding the page. But in the next shot, after he drops it, the face is still intact and starts to burn all over again. (00:22:30)
