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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Bureau - S3-E22

Character mistake: Captain Holt calls the Pimento case "Operation 225641441636324" which he said he arrived by placing a numerical value to each letter in Pimento and then squaring it. But the perfect squares couldn't match up to Pimento since there's only 6 perfect squares and Pimento has 7 letters (plus the last 2 perfect squares don't fit the pattern of the previous 4). Nor is "225641441636324" a perfect square.

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 this writing, 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).

Update: On 1 January 2022, Keechant Sewell became the first ever female commissioner of the NYPD.
