Goof: In the scene where Bones uses Booth's tie to test the chicken plucker machine, Booth has the top button on his shirt buttoned. When the camera jumps to Cam, it's still buttoned, but then in one of the shots of him and Brennan it's unbuttoned. It is then done up again, and Booth unbuttons it.
Cam: I guess I'd be angry too if someone pulled my brain out through my nose and stuck it in a canopic jar.
The brains of many Egyptian mummies were pulled out through the nose; however, they were not put in canopic jars. The brain was discarded because the ancient Egyptians believed it had no value in the afterlife. The canopic jars were for the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver.
Goof: When Cam goes up to the platform (while on the phone with Booth and Brennan) she swipes her card through the reader to enter. It can cleary be seen that the magnetic strip of her card does not go trough the reader though, as she swiped it the wrong way...but she is still allowed access to the platform.
In the car on the way to talk to Levi's parents, Booth mentions that the Amish "reject buttons," but then in the next scene, Levi's dad is wearing a shirt with buttons.
Unless Levi, Tony, and Karen were film editors as well as music students, their home video of Levi playing the piano would not be so advanced to include multiple camera angles while maintaining the continuity of the music.
The music piece played by Levi Yoder for his audition is Chopin's Nocturne Op. 9 No. 1.
At the beginning of the episode, Animal Control has absolutely no trouble picking up and crating the feral cats that had snacked on the body. Realistically, the cats would have scattered at the first sign of a human's approach and would have never willfully been captured.
Goof: In the scene where Booth and Bones find the CIA agent in the trunk of the car, Bones' hair is tied back when she's looking at the blood dripping from the car, down in the back shot when they open the trunk, then up again when they show her from the front.
Goof: The body of the dead Russian is found at Dulles Airport in Fairfax County, VA. However, the animal control vans say Montgomery County, which is in Maryland, about 30 miles from the airport.
Goof: When Brennan is talking to Harmonia in her house, you can see only two rows of cards are laid down. Yet after flipping only one card, she is placing them in the corner nearest Brennan showing a 3rd row partially filled in.
Goof: when Angela types in "retirement communities" into her recognition program, the word 'algorithm' is spelled 'alogrithm' on the computer screen.
In the closing act, Caroline Julian gives Bones and Booth a ride in a yellow AMC Gremlin. The car looks exactly like Caroline's car in the season two episode "Judas on a Pole," which was badly damaged after Booth borrowed it and Bones's brother Russ backed into it with an SUV while escaping with Bones's father. The damage to Caroline's car was most likely more than it was worth, so unless she restored it out-of-pocket or found another car of the same model, color, and design, this is a goof.
Booth: (to Sweets) I don't own a nightclub, I'm not married to Bones, you are not a zany bartender, and I hate clowns.
Booth seems to forget this fact at the end of the episode, when passing by a clown with Brennan. However, Booth could have mentioned his hate of clowns as a fact he knew was true regarding his former self, but one that may not be true anymore -- giving the situation more believability.
Goof: About three-fourths of the way though the episode Brennan is attacked by Dr. Leacock. He stabs her in the arm and she is clearly badly injured. However, for the rest of the episode no bandage is seen on either of Brennan's arms.
Booth's middle name is revealed in this episode -- Booth himself says it's Joseph.
Sweets' band is Gormogon which is a reference to the story arc of season three, where they were trying to catch a serial killer dubbed Gormogon. Sweets also clarifies that the band is called Gormogon, not him, which references "The Pain in the Heart" where Sweets is accused of being Gormogon by Cam.
Vincent: (to Zack) Because you're the kind of moron that goes to jail for a murder he did not commit.
This comment references information revealed in "The Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond." Wherein Zack tells Sweets, confidentially, that he never actually committed murder—he only felt responsible for it.
Jared Booth, who in this episode assumes a law enforcement role similar to that of his brother Seeley's, is wearing the "Cocky" belt buckle that Seeley is often seen wearing.
Goof: In the last scene, when Hodgins is doing a voice-over of what Brennan is typing on a laptop, the last line of Hodgins' voice-over (which Brennan whispers along with) is "Burdens that allow us to fly." -- but on the screen of Brennan's laptop it says "Burdens which allow us."
Brennan: You were seeing something in there. What were you seeing?
Booth: Stewie, you know, the baby from The Family Guy.
Brennan: You— you saw Stewie ... in there? In the interrogation room?
Brennan doesn't ask for any clarification as to who "Stewie" is, which means that she apparently knows what Family Guy is. It's very hard to believe that Brennan would know about a Fox TV show but not pick up on so many other very common pop culture references, as has been seen throughout the series. Also, she doesn't even own a TV.
