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.

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)

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)

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.

Show generally

Question: Over several episodes we see Captain Holt in competition with other Captains for the position of Commissioner. However, we have seen several Deputy Commissioners on the show. Is Commissioner a position that only Captains are eligible for? Are Deputy Commissioners ineligible? How realistic is this?

Answer: In reality, the Commissioner is a civilian administrator, appointed by the mayor of New York City. He (as of today, the role has always been filled by a man; the show gets that part right) is usually someone who has risen through the ranks of the NYPD, but upon becoming Commissioner, is no longer a sworn member of the force (the highest sworn rank is that of Chief). Since Commissioners are appointed, technically anyone can serve in the position, including Deputy Commissioners (who are appointed, in turn, by the Commissioner himself).
