Goof: The titanium alloys usually used for orthopedic and dental implants is relatively pure, so Hodgins would not be able to find it using the magnetic gloves as titanium is not magnetic.
Just before Wally dives in the water, you can see that there is a face painted on his oxygen tank. The image is very similar to Hart Hanson, creator of the show.
During a conversation in the car, Brennan and Booth talk about Lee Coleman and Brennan does not know who he was. Booth says Bones doesn't have a TV. She says she does, but it is in the closet. This might give the impression that she is not watching TV at all (stated many times in previous episodes). It was well established earlier this season, however, in the Maggots in the Meathead that Bones watched a "documentary" or rather reality show about a subculture of "Guidos."
Goof: When Vincent is apologizing to Brennan, she walks away and is seen standing with her back to Vincent. In the next shot (with Brennan close-up) she is obviously facing Vincent.
Goof: Angela claims to have boosted the audio-recording above the Nyquist-frequency. On the one hand this is very unlikely since most digital-cameras use some sort of video and audio-compression, so frequencies a human can not hear would not have been recorded by the camera. On the other hand, the Nyquist-frequency is the resolution-limit of a frequency-based encoding of an audio-sample, which actually says, the sampling-frequency must be at least the double of the maximum frequency to be properly encoded (Shannon-theorem: f_s >= 2 * f_Nyquist). Therefore, even boosting the recording as Angela claims would not reveal any extra audio-information since it would simply not have been recorded.
The establishing shot of the fictional University of Hogansburg is in fact the Valley Life Sciences Building at UC Berkeley.
This is the first time Bones never worked on a single bone. This is also the first time she did not step one foot into the Jeffersonian during a murder.
Joseph is Seeley Booth's middle name.
Angela changed the name her father gave her (which was "Mouse") because she hated it. (In season three she said that she legally changed her name on her 18th birthday after the name 'Angela Montenegro' came to her in a dream.)
In the beginning, Taffet is talking to Sweets and she mentions that he is to testify at her appeal. But an appellate court does not hear testimony, only trial courts take testimony.
Booth's supposedly record-holding shot of "over a kilometer" (over 0.62 miles) would be considered unexceptional in the real world. Modern snipers regularly and successfully operate at that range, and (as of the episode's air-date) the record for the longest confirmed kill made by a sniper is 2.475 kilometers, or a little over 1.5 miles.
When Sweets is working out in the beginning of the episode, he's listening to "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson. This foreshadows the episode "The Hole in the Heart" when the song has a more prominent role.
The paper that Bones is holding in the elevator shows the zip code for Washington, D.C. as 20014 when in fact there is no such Zip Code. There is a 20013 and a 20015 however.
175-180 centimeters does not correlate to 5'8-5'9, more like 5'9-5'11.
The study that Micah mentions in the bone room with Dr. Brennan seems to be a study from the Journal of Perception entitled "The myth of upright vision. A psychophysical and functional imaging study of adaptation to inverting spectacle." [Journal of Perception, 1999, volume 28, pages 469-481. Linden, David E J, et. al.]
GOOF: When Hodgins and Daisy are walking up on the platform, near the beginning of the episode, the camera zooms in to Hodgins scanning his card. His wedding ring is on his ring finger. However, after the cut to them walking across the platform his ring is on his pinky finger where it normally is.
GOOF: As a licensed clinician Dr. Sweets should know that Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) is no longer an acknowledged diagnosis. The disorder formerly known as MPD is now called Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Unless Angela had started revealing her pregnancy to everyone in the lab there is no way that Mr. Nigel-Murray could have known she was pregnant.
Goof: In season 3, episode 10, Sweets said that he loves dogs, and in this episode when he and Daisy tried to find common interests, he said that he is allergic.
Nitpick: Hodgins puts the bones in a tank and adds piranhas into the water to eat the pink organism off. Seconds later, he removes a bone and it is clean, but it is unlikely the piranhas could eat them in that time. Also, when Daisy asked for the ulna, Hodgins was able to easily pick it out. With the unclear, bubbling water, it would be hard to find a specific bone that fast.
