Suspicion - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Gibbs and the team meet the sheriff and ask to be shown the crime scene, he states that it was in the Edenvale motel room 8. In the opening scene the door that the gentleman knocked on and subsequently got his feet covered in blood from the body bleeding out was room 1. (00:00:50 - 00:04:05)

Cover Story - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When McGee is writing, we see he is working on a new paragraph. Camera cuts away for 6 seconds and then cuts back and now he is already halfway through the third line of that paragraph despite there not being enough time or enough pings of the typewriter resetting. (00:33:50)

Cover Story - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When McGee is free-writing, the stuff he has styped changes between the two close ups. While the words remain the same, the spelling and punctuation changes. "Was" becomes "Wsa", "Gat" becomes "gat", "desser" becomes "des" and "Bang" becomes "bang". (00:33:40)
