NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

The Truth Is Out There - S1-E17

Character mistake: Gibbs and Ducky are in Autopsy, with Ducky describing lower-leg injuries of a deceased Petty Officer. The two bones in the lower leg are the tibia and the fibula; however, Ducky, a doctor with decades of experience, referred to the injuries as fractures of the "tibia" and "fibia." (00:13:05)

The Curse - S1-E5

Character mistake: When Gibbs first looks at the victim's body and sees his rank, he incorrectly refers to him as a Lieutenant when the rank is for a Captain.

Bete Noire - S1-E16

Character mistake: Ari tells Ducky and Gerald that if they lie or he suspects them of lying, he will shoot them in a ball-and-socket joint. Ari later shoots Gerald in the shoulder and mentions that next time it would be his knee. The knee is not a ball-and-socket joint. It is a hinge joint. The only other ball-and-socket joint in the human body is located in the hip. Ari is an educated Doctor and should know the difference. (00:24:00)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Factual error: Air Force One landed in Wichita, Kansas. The local coroner claimed Jurisdiction for Wichita County. The city of Wichita, Kansas is in Sedgwick County, in southern Kansas. Wichita County, Kansas is in western Kansas, about 250 miles from the city of Wichita. (00:05:40)
