Cops and Robbers - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Mickey walks into the urinals trying to steal the videotape, he has the phone in his hand calling the switchboard. He then puts it into his hand and turns the taps on. He washes his hands and leaves the urinals without the phone in his hand. Then, in the next shot, he walks through the door with the phone in his hand and puts it into his pocket. (00:11:00)


Cops and Robbers - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: As Victor and Mickey are talking in Victor's office, Victor has his feet placed on his desk. He then removes them and leans forward to speak to Mickey. In the next shot, his feet are suddenly on the desk again. (00:11:50)

Cops and Robbers - S1-E4

Deliberate mistake: When Sam first meets Mickey (who is posing as a bank robber), Mickey says he needs Sam to state that he needs Mickey's help in robbing a bank, so if Sam turns out to be an undercover cop, Mickey can plead entrapment. This is a classic error. Entrapment only exists where a cop actively persuades a criminal to do something he otherwise wouldn't have done - which is not the case here. If Mickey as a con artist knows this (which is likely), it's a deliberate mistake, otherwise it's a factual error. (00:30:09)


Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Albert, what the hell were you doing in a church today?
Albert Stroller: Gil Stewart died this afternoon. I was there at the end.
Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Oh God, I'm so sorry Albert. You two were like brothers.
Albert Stroller: We worked Vegas together. That man was made for bright lights. Poor bastard - died of a stroke in a dental surgery.
Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Well, someone should sue them.
Albert Stroller: Aye, he was pretending to be the dentist.

Trivia: In some versions of this episode the name of the newspaper the grifters con has been rather clumsily dubbed over as "The Weekend World" rather than the original "The Sunday World", which is a real newspaper.
