Christmas - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Amy calls the squad in to talk about a Christmas card for Holt, there's tape on the floor by Gina and Terry's feet, showing where they are supposed to stand. (00:05:00)

Christmas - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Jake handcuffs himself to Captain Holt, the cuffs around each of their wrists consists of double metal bars connected to a single bar. The direction of the handcuffs changes a few times, going round their wrists the opposite way, which is quite impossible. Then the same thing occurs when Boyle handcuffs himself to Holt. (00:09:35)

Pontiac Bandit - S1-E12

Factual error: When Jake is given a burner phone by Doug Judy, he receives a text message from the 'Pontiac Bandit'. The phone is an old cellphone from the late 90s, but the text message makes an iPhone sound/tone from the late 2000s. He receives another text message again later with the same tone. (00:09:55 - 00:12:50)

Payback - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: At the start, Terry takes Jake's phone off him while he's in the middle of writing a text. We see the screen and it's on the regular homescreen. Jake then takes it back and immediately carries on typing, not opening up the messaging app first.

Captain Peralta - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The scene where Boyle explains the case for Scully and Hitchcock you can see the same two people walking by the room 3 times, coming from right to left in the background. (00:08:30 - 00:09:20)

Captain Peralta - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Jake and Boyle talk about Jake's Dad, a man (grey clothing and holding a cup) in the background (behind Boyle on the left) walks from the back to the front in the same way in both shots. (01:45:00 - 01:55:00)

The Chopper - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: When Terry answers the phone to his wife after he changes his relationship status to "it's complicated", he answers the phone but the phone is still on the answer the call menu.

Johnny and Dora - S2-E23

Character mistake: When Wunch frisks Holt in order to "check for a wire," she appears to forget that her actions are easily visible through the interrogation room's mirror, something a high ranking official in the NYPD would not likely forget. (00:11:41)

Boyle's Hunch - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Just before the end credits, Boyle is walking to his desk and he places his jacket over his chair with his bag on top of the coat. The shot changes to Peralta speaking but then the shot goes back onto Boyle and the jacket has disappeared. (00:20:20)

Halloween III - S3-E5

Plot hole: Amy lets Scully place the witch in the break-room, but how could she have known that after captain Holt steals the crown out of the locker, he would go there? And not for example goes back through the window he came from.

Halloween III - S3-E5

Other mistake: Holt takes the crown out of the back of Jake's cabinet. However this wouldn't be possible as the crown was in the top drawer. This would have a back on it and it wouldn't be accessible by just removing the back of the cabinet.

Max Thompson

Ava - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When Terry's wife Sharon walks into the station, she's wearing a purple dress. When she announces her water has broken while in the interrogation room, she's wearing the purple dress. After returning from commercial break, she's still sitting in the exact same spot but now wearing a burgundy tracksuit and lavender top. (Perhaps she changed clothes because her water broke however, it's highly unlikely since she is sitting in the same place and doesn't look like she's left the room).

Teeveequeen

Yippie Kayak - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Because the show is filmed in L.A, the lack of snow in December is very noticeable. When the characters are outside there isn't any snow whatsoever, but when Jake, Gina, and Charles are inside the store, the audience can see the heavy snow and blizzard outside from a large window behind them. (00:07:55)

Yippie Kayak - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: At the end, Gina makes her flame-thrower with cologne and lighter. However, she never lights the lighter and the flames still appear, as if they were just added in digitally.

Terry Kitties - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Charles approaches Adrian about how much longer he's going to stay at his place, he knocks stuff off the desk leaving a pink folder. After Adrian takes the fork away from Charles' neck, there are now extra folders on top of the pink one.

Bishop73

Bureau - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In season 2 episode 11, Jake is shown doing at least 3 pull ups but in this episode he shows he doesn't know how to do one and Terry has to show him.

Operation: Broken Feather - S1-E15

Adam Sandler: This is terrible, you don't know what you're doing.
Jake Peralta: Adam Sandler?
Adam Sandler: Yeah, that's right. I collect antiquities. I'm a serious person. I'm writing a movie right now, about the Russian revolution.
Jake Peralta: Oh, really? Who does Kevin James play in it?
Adam Sandler: Ha ha. It's a serious movie...Trotsky.
Jake Peralta: Ah, there it is.
Adam Sandler: But he's got a wife who never wears a bra. [To the guy next to him] I think you're going to like it.
Jake Peralta: Thanks for dressing up, by the way.

Payback - S2-E13

Question: While trying to keep Terry busy at the gym, Jake is on the treadmill and believes he has burned 200 calories, until Terry corrects him and tells him 200 is his heart rate. I know it's a joke, but in reality, could a person even talk with a heart rate of 200 bpm? (00:16:20)
