White Collar "Free Fall" Nitpicks

Season 1, Episode 7 Air Date: December 4, 2009

When you watch a program over and over, you start to notice minor continuity issues, plot oversights and other goofs. This page is not intended to be a criticism aimed toward the show or anyone who works on White Collar. They produce a great show and should be proud of their work. That's why I titled it "Nitpicks" because to nitpick means "to be overly critical or criticize minor details." This page is intended to be for people who love watching something and going "I never noticed that..."

Short Memory? Peter tells Elizabeth, "I don't know what could be so valuable at a clothing store." Really? A minute ago you told Neal there was a suspected jewelry heist. Perhaps an expensive piece of jewelry was stolen...

Hide and Seek? Jones tells Peter that Hughes wants him in his office. But Hughes, Fowler and Peter sit in the Conference room, not in Hughes office.

It's a Bird! Mozzie says "You can check my University of Phoenix online degree. Go cardinals." The mascot of the University of Phoenix is actually the Phoenix. Jeff Eastin purposefully changed it because he thought cardinals sounded funnier. Also, the University of Phoenix does not offer a law degree and having a degree does not make one an attorney, passing the Bar does.

Free Fall goof from White Collar

Conspiracy Theories: What is Hughes hiding? He tells Peter they have a "problem" then informs him that Caffrey has requested access to his FBI files. What is in there that Hughes (and Peter) don't want Neal to see?

X-Ray Vision? Why did Elizabeth need to distract the FBI agents so Neal could sneak around back? They live in a townhouse. Did the FBI have agents watching the front and back of the house on the off chance that a fleeing suspect would stop by the case agent assigned to find him? (Okay, they would have been right, but it seems strange.)
