The Unit

CBS (ended 2009)




  • Season 4 Episode 22: Unknown Soldier

  • NOT a Goof: When looking at the satellite images of Atlanta, Colonel Ryan tells his staff he needs "to see every crook and nanny..." The phrase is actually "nook and cranny" which means every small, out-of-the-way place or places, where something can be hidden. Since they are looking for bad guys, Ryan uses the sardonic play on words and deliberately says "crook and nanny".

  • Goof: At the wedding, Mack Gerhardt is wearing the insignia for a Sergeant First Class, yet in several episodes he has been identified as a Master Sergeant. His insignia is the same as Bob Brown and Charles Grey, who are both Sergeant First Class. The difference is that the Master Sergeant insignia has an extra bar on the bottom when compared to the Sergeant First Class insignia.

  • Goof: Colonel Ryan tells the president that they have captured an ex-KGB General who had supplied the U-235 to Drake. Ryan says that they caught the guy and were transporting him to Edwards. The assumption is that this is Edwards AFB in California. However in a later scene at the Pentagon, Ryan confronts the ex-KGB General.

    Colonel Ryan probably meant to say Andrews, not Edwards, as Andrews AFB is just outside of Washington DC.

  • Season 4 Episode 20: Chaos Theory

  • Goof: When Jonas drives up in the Biohazard Van in Hong Kong, he is driving a left hand drive vehicle. All vehicles in Hong Kong are right hand drive vehicles.

  • Goof: In the very first scene when they are in Rome, Italy; is actually the main Station of Zurich in Switzerland and its most famous shopping street "Bahnhofstrasse".

  • Season 4 Episode 19: Whiplash

  • This episode begins with the Team shooting four unsuspecting Al Qaeda members simultaneously in order to take the fifth member into custody. It originally aired on April 12, 2009, which was the same night that Navy SEAL snipers took out three Somalian pirates simultaneously to end the hostage situation.

  • Season 4 Episode 18: Best Laid Plans

  • Goof: After Jonas, Mack and terrorists flee the scene of the shoot out, Bob comes down out of the hills to check the status of the downed ICE agents. He reports to the TOC the first agent is KIA, then moves to the second man that Jonas shot in the chest. Bob reports the agent has a pulse and the vest stopped the bullet. Then he cups his hands on the man's chest and tells the TOC that the agent is not breathing. At this point, Bob begins CPR compressions. The steps for CPR are A-(Airway), B-(Breathing), C-(Circulation). Bob should have opened the airway by tilting the head back or performing a jaw thrust and listened for breath sounds. The most common cause of airway obstruction is the tongue, so tilting the head may have opened the airway enough for the agent to start breathing on his own. If it did not, Bob should have administered two rescue breaths before starting any chest compressions. Bob should have also removed the Kevlar vest to make sure the compressions were performed at the proper depth. The steps of CPR are universal and done in a specific order every time. It wouldn't be effective to skip the rescue breaths, especially if the patient was not breathing.

  • Season 4 Episode 15: Hero

  • Goof: The stunt man for the new Unit member, Sam McBride, has black hair and the actor has blonde hair.

  • Hector was buried in Janesville, Wisconsin.

    His headstone reads:
    Hector Lucian Williams
    February 12, 1981 - November 6, 2007

    This would have made him 26 when he died.

  • Season 4 Episode 14: The Last Nazi

  • Goof: The flag visible in the bottom of the screen in the last shot is not the Swiss flag but the Norwegian one. The Swiss flag is a red square with a white cross.

  • Goof: Swiss license plates always begin with two letters (an abbreviation for the Canton in which the car is registered). In this episode the license plates have three letters.

  • Goof: The "Swiss" people in this episode speak German with a very bad accent. They would, however, be speaking "Swiss German" which sounds more like Dutch than German.

  • The name of the town the team travels to in Switzerland is "Fravenfeld". There is no such place in Switzerland but a city called "Frauenfeld" in the Thurgau area.

  • Season 4 Episode 12: Bad Beat

  • Bridget spoke Cantonese, rather phonetically pronounced Cantonese words stiltedly.

  • The opening exterior shot of the casino, "Golden Lotus" is actually that of the Casino Lisboa hotel in Macau.

  • Season 4 Episode 5: Dancing Lessons

  • In this episode, Charles Grey is pictured shirtless by the swimming pool; there are no traces of his being hit by one bullet in the shoulder in the episode "Games of Chance". Nor were there any traces that he was shot two more times in the episode "Five Brothers". Not to mention the scar of the chest tube he had put in due to his wounds in "Five Brothers". These wounds were clearly seen in the episodes "Binary Explosion" and "Side Angle Side".

  • Season 4 Episode 3: Sex Trade

  • Goof: When Bob and Mack are attempting to get the video monitor to work inside the taxi, Mack solders an audio board which somehow makes the video work. (ASD-702i is an Analog-Digital audio converter)

  • Season 4 Episode 1: Sacrifice

  • Goof: The photo of Tiffy and Ryan that Mack finds in Tiffy's jewelry box is not the same photo that was shown in the opening credits or the same photo that Kim found at the end of season one. The background in the original photo was a window or mirror. The photo that Mack found was against a white wall. It's possible that she had more than one photo, however, it was established in a previous episode that she hid one in the jewelry box.

  • Goof: In the opening scene, the French translator/undercover operative pushes Jonas in the pool. When Jonas emerges from the water, his shirt is barely wet. Seconds later, his shirt is dry.

  • Goof: In the hunting cabin, we can see Jonas and Charles with bloody gashes all over their faces and upper body as a result of the explosion. When they meet the wives back in Forth Griffith they all appear fine with no signs of injuries, healed or not.
