Goof: At the beginning of the episode, when Brennan, Booth and Zack are in the car, Zack goes from leaning forward to sitting back on his seat between shots.
Goof: At the very start of the episode, Booth and Bones are sitting in his SUV outside the lab. When the shot moves in the car to them there is a small tree in the background - behind Bones. Later when they get to the school, the very same tree is in the background.
Goof: When Booth and Brennan are talking at the Jeffersonian and their cell phones ring, Bones's hair shifts between a tight, high pony tail and a low, loose pony tail between shots.
Goof: While Booth and Brennan are waiting for the sheriff to deliver the sex tapes, Brennan's arm changes positions in between shots. Sometimes it is resting on the car door and at other times her arms are crossed.
Goof: At 24:11 the shadow of a boom-mic is visible on Bones' head.
Goof: Tovar Comara, the Venezuelan security agent, says to Brennan that the case "huele mala" (Spanish for "it stinks") but the pronunciation is wrong, the correct phrase is "huele mal."
Goof: When they ran the simulation of Nestor's hyoid breaking, Angela says it took just over eight days, but the read-out on the simulator said "Day 15" when it broke.
Goof: Bones watches a DVD of the victim on a big flat screen television mounted to her wall but at the end of the episode the television is gone from the wall.
In this episode, Booth uses a security card to access the forensic area of the lab, but in the next episode he doesn't have one. This is because The Man in the S.U.V. was originally scheduled to air after A Boy in the Tree, not before.
Goof: When Booth and Bones are going up the escalator, Booth's mouth does not match up with what he is saying.
Goof: Brennan moves her hands from her hips and folds her arms while talking with Mrs. Masruk, but her reflection behind Mrs. Masruk shows her hands still on her hips.
Goof: At 18:35 there are people visible entering the restaurant behind Bones, yet when the shot pulls out a second later onto Booth, Bones, and Angela, the people are gone.
Goof: At 31:20, Dr. Brennan is congratulating Angela on doing good work, but when she is talking to her she clearly says "Good work An-u-la" instead of "Good work Angela."
Goof: During their car ride, at around 35:10, just as Booth finishes his line "Just be careful, alright," the view in the rear window changes and suddenly there is a car close by.
Goof: At the end of the episode there is a close-up of Bones and her head is resting on her hand, but when the shot changes, her hand is down.
Goof: When Hamid was on the phone with his wife he was speaking fluent Arabic with a Lebanese accent, making it hard for one to believe that he's truly Afghani.
Goof: After shooting Farid and waiting to get the "all clear," Booth holsters his gun to lean on the railing with both hands. However, in the next shot of him, he is holding the gun as if he had just taken the shot, showing that the reaction shots were shuffled around.
The many car rides done by Booth and Dr. Brennan have very bad continuity. The lighting that is supposed to imitate the sunlight is from the same direction in every car scene.
It is somewhat odd that Hamid Masruk was working for the Arab-American Friendship League, since he was Afghani, and therefore not Arab.
Dr. Brennan's second sentence to Booth is:
"Don't call me Bones" (which becomes a running theme for the beginning of the series).
Another catch phrase of hers is introduced in this episode: "I don't know what that means." She usually says this when someone makes a popular culture allusion or remark.
