ER

Fear of Flying - S3-E6

Character mistake: When Dr. Keaton rushes back into the OR to take over from Peter, she moves forward, pushing the door open with her hands. No surgeon would EVER enter an OR this way-it would contaminate her hands. The proper way is to back into the room, keeping one's hands in the air and free.

Chicago Heat - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: After Dr. Benton talks to the police detective and then goes to see the grocery store owner, as Dr. Benton swings open the doors, the camera crew can be seen in the reflection of the glass of the door.

Trivia: Every episode has the patient list by the nurse's station. On the patient list, different names are mentioned, like Marguiles or Tierney. They put these names there as a spoof of the show.

Question: Does anybody know what the episode was called where that helicopter severed Romano's arm? I'm pretty sure it was season 8.
