The Time of the Knife - S1-E8

Happy Birthday... Everybody - S3-E20

Plot hole: After a chance meeting in Mexico, Tom Matthews invites Kelly and Scott to his home for dinner.

Pinwheel - S3-E26

Continuity mistake: When Wellington drags Melanie into the room where the Chinese buyer waits, he's holding her by the elbow. But when the shot cuts to a wider angle, her arm is instantly down at her side instead, and Wellington is standing apart, no longer touching her at all. (00:40:00)

This Guy Smith - S3-E18

Visible crew/equipment: As Kelly is getting dressed in the hospital room, someone's shadow strolls across the floor in front of him. Scott is standing still, and no one else is there, so the shadow must belong to a film crew member. (00:13:35)
