Emergency! mistake picture

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the rock quarry, when John is pulling up the stokes Jason is standing to his left, and just as the banister bar breaks in front of John, it's amusing to note that we can see a crew member's hand gripping the back of Randolph Mantooth's pants, at the right side of the screen.

Mascot - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene of Paula's traffic accident, after the ambulance leaves with Johnny and Paula inside, Roy pushes the back of the driver's seat forward revealing Bonnie in the back seat. When it cuts to the next shot, the reflection of a crew member leaning forward is visible in the car's window, and the mic is also visible on the left. Additionally, Johnny is visible in the background, even though he just left in the ambulance with the victim, as the actor who portrays him, Randolph Mantooth, is casually leaning on a sign post waiting around during the location shoot.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is on scene at the vehicle accident in the canyon, after Marco uses a crowbar to free the driver of the station wagon and he pulls the driver out, a crew member standing behind the FX 6-ft wind machine fan (to blow smoke) are visible in the background beside the other overturned car. As an aside, in the previous and following shots that crew member and wind machine fan are in the same spot where Chet and Johnny supposedly are.

Emergency! mistake picture

Fools - S3-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 is dispatched to 'person caught in a mailbox', have a look at the squad's license plates when it rolls up on scene. The plates read "70324H" which is the California commercial plate number for Squad 51, not the usual prop dept's license plate "E999007." It was the prop dept's responsibility to change from the commercial plate to the prop plate, but this scene slipped by them. It's also interesting to notice that this scene takes place at a real intersection up the block from Universal Studios, which is the direction Squad 51 came from. Note the "Black Tower/MCA Tower" in the background, which houses Universal's executive offices.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Johnny learns of his last rescue's death, when he enters the hallway the treatment room beside the nurses' station is treatment 4, but when Brackett and Early pass the nurses' station to go save a rabbit from a sousaphone, it's treatment 2 that's beside the nurses' station. Then, as soon as Brackett and Early enter their door, in the next shot as Dix speaks to the officer, it's treatment 5 beside the nurses' station.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Rampart's ER is located in the south lower wing of the hospital complex and it is only a two-storey building (with a basement), but the elevator, which is located past the nurses' station at the wing's far south end, has two floor indicator panels listing eight floors - one panel over the elevator doors and another we see every time the elevator doors open, which is not possible.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Promise - S3-E11

Visible crew/equipment: Once the ledge rescue is over, after Johnny tells Brackett that he could put in a good word for him to join the paramedic program, when Roy opens the squad door to get in, the wing mirror offers up nice reflections of a few crew members.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Factual error: When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: When Johnny and Roy are crawling on the balcony, during the fire at the apartment complex, when they pass under a window we can see the FX tubes from which the flames shoot out.

Decision - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy has trouble sleeping in the middle of the night, he gets up, and when he goes to the bathroom sink, there is a fully dressed crew member whose reflection is visible in the mirror, as he moves around and looks through the door window towards the actor. Then 51's tones drop, and in the next shot we see that all the other guys of Station 51 have been lying in their beds, before getting up and putting on their turnouts.

Emergency! mistake picture

Inventions - S3-E22

Visible crew/equipment: At the site of the major chemical leak, after Johnny falls from the pipes and Roy lifts him up, a couple of shots later there is a medium shot of one of 105's guys on Deluge 105 pumping out water, and we can see a cameraman (filming Deluge 105's closeups that we see during this scene) holding a handheld on the right of the screen, behind the pillar.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 10 is dispatched to the factory fire, a few shots after the closeup of 105's door that reads "fire dept deluge", there's an overhead long shot of the men using the hoses against the fires in the doorways, and a cameraman wearing blue, holding a handheld camera, is visible sitting at the back of a squad.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As the camera pans to the left at the start of this episode, while everyone is asleep in the dorm upstairs, a crew member standing near the production's lighting equipment is visible between Squad 10 and the wall. Also note that the lighting equipment is gone when the guys are dispatched.

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex fire, after Johnny is knocked unconscious by the explosion, when the Pasadena fireman finds him and has to lift him up, it's funny how even though Johnny's unconscious we can see that he actually helps to stand himself up, so the fireman can lift him up and carry him out.

Emergency! mistake picture

Foreign Trade - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is writing the 'for sale' sign about his Land Rover, in the wide shot the two phone numbers begin with "853" and "352", but in the closeup a piece of paper has been glued over the phone numbers, and the new numbers now begin with "321" and "749."

905-Wild - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Squad 51 speeding toward their destination, and when the camera cuts to the woman in front of the market, she's waving her arms to the squad somewhere in the distance. But notice that while Rosa is looking to her left and waving, we can see Squad 51's reflection in the window (with the liquor bottles), as they are parked right there, just off-screen waiting for their cue to "speedily" pull up.

Emergency! mistake picture

Promotion - S3-E7

Visible crew/equipment: During the structure fire, Johnny and Roy rescue the security guard, and when Roy breaks the window with the chair, we can see a couple of crew members, equipment, and lighting on a tripod, outside down below.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Bash - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny and Roy save the man at Vic's party, when they are leaving, the reflections of crew members and production equipment are visible on the orange surface of the ambulance as it drives away.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex where the jet fighter had crashed there's an explosion, and when one of the firefighters becomes engulfed in flames his helmet falls off, and the special fireproof headpiece that the stuntman is wearing is visible.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Mouse - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Herbert leaves the station in the morning, dispatch sounds the alarms, and when Roy and John are in the squad while the dispatcher begins talking, there are nice reflections of the camera, reflector screen (in the background), and crew members/cameraman who move around, that are visible on the surface of the spotlight. Additionally, the shadow of the boom/mic is perfectly visible on the windshield as it moves down.

Emergency! mistake picture

Computer Error - S3-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 arrives at the salvage yard's fire, Johnny gets out of the squad, and when he puts on his turnout coat as the camera zooms out, a dark haired crew member wearing a short sleeve white shirt is visible at the lower right corner of the screen.

Emergency! mistake picture

Propinquity - S3-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the abandoned refinery, just after Roy attempts to pull out the man pinned under a tank, but is unsuccessful the first time, when it cuts to Captain Stanley and Chet, who are on the third level hosing the fire through the doorway, at the left of the screen a crew member is visible, watching them.

Right at Home - S5-E17

Visible crew/equipment: During the fire late at night, after Johnny and Roy run to the burning house, when Captain Stanley tells Chet to get the exposure and later warns to watch for spot fires, the moving shadow of the cameraman/camera is visible on the ground, right beside Captain Stanley's shadow.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Professor - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are with 110 and are on scene at the downed airplane, as they remove the pilot from the aircraft, the silver fire starting canister used for the stunt is visible under the plane, before it becomes engulfed in flames.

Emergency! mistake picture

The Lighter-Than-Air Man - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When all the guys are on site of an overturned tractor trailer, Captain Stanley says "Let's cool off that cab." In the next closeup of Stoker spinning a gear, the reflection of the cameraman (with mustache and hat) holding a handheld camera is visible on the engine's red surface.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: After Johnny is hit by the car Roy kneels down beside him and shouts "Trauma box!" but the subtitles read, "Code box!"

Emergency! mistake picture

Body Language - S3-E12

Revealing mistake: After the two drivers from the traffic accident walk off holding hands, and Johnny tells Roy what happened with Barbara, while Roy explains body language to Johnny, we can see the white tape with "Kevin" inside Roy's helmet.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Chet's practical joke on Karen, she's quite ticked off, and Roy and Johnny are a bit uncomfortable, and then when Station 51 is dispatched to the unknown type rescue they all head to the apparatus bay. In the next shot when Karen, Roy, and Johnny get into the squad just watch all the actors' faces. First Johnny cracks up, then Roy and Karen, who even put their heads down to hide their laughter, particularly Roy who ducks his head behind the steering wheel. Fun to watch.

Emergency! mistake picture

Limelight - S6-E24

Visible crew/equipment: During the emergency surgery on the boy who was shot with a pellet gun, the wired microphone that is taped to Brackett's shirt with black tape and hidden under his white coat becomes visible when he puts the gloves on, and during the surgery.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?

Trivia

You just have to see this to believe it. When Roy and Johnny walk into Brackett's office with him, to listen to the tape of 110's rescue, as soon as they stand around the desk, while Brackett is talking, Johnny puts his hand around a golden smallish object on Brackett's desk, pulls it close to him, palms the item and very quickly stashes it in his klepto pocket. Randolph Mantooth pulled off a beauty here without breaking character, and the director actually left the prank in instead of a retake. So enjoyable to watch.
