Numb3rs

Longshot - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When the FBI goes to arrest Tabakien, his men try to stop them and Don slams one of the guys' heads into a plate. The plate breaks into several pieces spreading the food all over. After you see the other men being stopped, you see a shot of the first guy again. And you can see that the plate is mostly intact and the food is not spread around as much.

Waste Not - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Around the middle of the episode, Charlie Eppes and Mildred French are discussing in front of a board. She completes an equation and he adds a minus. In the next close shots, the minus disappears and reappears with angle changes. After three or four changes, a circle appears around the minus.

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: After explaining why it is illogical to play the lottery, Charlie asks the FBI agent if he ever plays craps. I didn't get the joke. Any help?

Answer: Craps is a casino game where players bet on the outcome of a dice roll. It deals heavily with probabilities and is a favorite of math experts like Charlie. Whatever the odds, though, your chances of winning are much greater than winning the lottery.
