ER

Show generally

Other mistake: Season 12, Episode "Blame it on the Rain": At the beginning of the episode, Abby is almost run over by a man driving an SUV. They exchange words and then Abby throws a supposedly full cup of coffee at him. The cup of coffee bounces off the seat of the man's car and it is obvious that the cup is empty.

Day for Knight - S5-E1

Other mistake: After resusitation attempts fail, Lucy is left alone with a dead patient whose phone starts ringing. At that point we can see the "dead" patient's chest rising up and down as he breathes (and he's not on a respirator).

Love's Labor Lost - S1-E20

Other mistake: When Jodi O'Brien is having seizures during the birth, Dr. Greene decides to take the baby out prematurely. Complications result and the woman dies, they show a shot of a clock in the background and it says 7:00, but when they say the Time of Death they say 6:02.

Men Plan, God Laughs - S1-E23

Other mistake: When the patient Isadore is brought in, early in the show, he is transferred from the stretcher onto a table, and we can see him deliberately move his right hand out of the way of the other actors moving him. He is supposed to be unconscious and very seriously injured so would not have done this is real life.

When the Bough Breaks - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Doug and the nurses are watching the TV about a motorcycle accident, Kerry comes along and calls him Mark. This could be a character error, but as Doug responds 'yeah', and they talk, it indeed becomes a production error. In real life, the person would have corrected her. (00:07:15)

Life After Death - S15-E1

Other mistake: When Neela puts back on her scrubs after sleeping with Simon, she has no scar on the front of her body. Yet she was opened up in the OR after she was trampled at the rally.

It's All in Your Head - S8-E15

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, there is an aerial shot where the camera pans over Central Park in New York City. The trees are full of leaves and some are changing color. The problem is that it is February when this episode is taking place, and the trees would have no leaves left on them.

Midnight - S10-E21

Other mistake: At Abby and Neela's graduation, there are at least a hundred students graduating. How did they get from Lockhart to Rasgota in three names?

Let It Snow - S15-E9

Other mistake: Sam is in the bathroom washing her hands. As she goes to leave, 'Ladies Room' is on the glass of the door, however it is oriented facing the inside of the room. It should appear backwards so it would be seen correctly from the outside, not inside. (00:39:52)

Suggested correction: This shot opens on a closeup of Sam's hands under the faucet, as she stands at the sink washing her face, in front of the mirror on the wall over the sink. Watch as the camera faces the mirror, so it's Sam's reflection drying her face and walking out the bathroom door. "Ladies room" is printed on the exterior side of the door's glass window. From the interior side the words are reversed, but since the camera faces the mirror, viewers see the reflection of the words the right way, not reversed.

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.

Doug Ross: Dr. Weaver and the sound of her own voice. A love story.

Trivia: Doug Ross frequently hung his head low, appearing ashamed or thoughtful or privately amused, depending on the scene. This wasn't just an element of the character: George Clooney had taken to writing his lines on papers, sheets, and other props.

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