Goofs: When the bus pulls up to the traffic lights, it's destination display is lit up plus several small lights around it, but in the far shot where it explodes these are not lit up, even before the explosion.
- After Jack is tortured and stabbed he heals remarkably quickly and has no lasting injuries.
- When the man is refused entry to the bus, the passengers inside the bus are seen and there is a women sitting behind the man with the newspaper. In the next shot inside the bus this seat is empty and she cannot be seen anywhere even though it is "real time" and little more than ten seconds has passed.
- Fayed is alternately called "Fayed" and "Abu Fayed." "Abu Fayed" literally means "Father of Fayed," and would be a nickname used by his friends, rather than being his own name. He can either be "Fayed" or "Abu Fayed" (in which case his own name would be something completely different), but he can't possibly be both.
- About two minutes into the episode a suicide bomber blows up a bus in Los Angeles. About eleven minutes into the episode (nine minutes later), Bill Buchanan briefs Jack on the conditions of his release and states that a terrorist attack was perpetrated "15 minutes ago here in Los Angeles." This is not possible in the "real time" scenario of the series. Bill Buchanan is unlikely to be referring to a different attack.
