Leave It to Weaver - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Finch is talking to Jeanie about the AIDS patient, Jeanie's stethoscope goes from being fully visible over both lapels to being only visible on the right side - without her touching it.

Last Rites - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Carol puts a chart on the counter and says, "I need 2 mgs of morphine for Mrs. Bragha", and Doctor Dave signs, with both arms on the counter when the camera is on Carol. But when the camera is on him, he has has one hand on the counter and one arm down by his side. This happens for a few shots.

Greene with Envy (a.k.a. Lawrence of Northwestern) - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Lawrence is working on the ER with Mark, he gets frustrated because the tag Kerry's issued to everyone gets in his way. He asks someone to get it out of his way, and as he moves around to the other side of the table, we can see it has been pulled up around the back of his neck. As he reaches the other side, it is suddenly hanging straight down again. A short time later it is tucked up around his neck again. At no time did he adjust it.

Sins of the Fathers - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: Mark and Dave are talking about the parachutist who had just died. As Dave says, "He died before I had a chance", an extra walks by them on the right. The shot shifts to Mark, who replies, but it is 4 seconds before the extra appears again beside Mark - this should have happened in a Split Second, not 4.

Truth & Consequences - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the start of the show, Dr. Dave asks the patient Jesse how he's feeling and Jesse answers, "Not so well", and then begins throwing up. By the next shot, though, there is more vomit on his shirt than could have possibly got there in such a short time.

Truth & Consequences - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: After saving Mr. Perez, Carter says "That's a nice save" to Mark, and takes his stethoscope out of his ears and wraps it around his neck. The next shot, however, from behind him, shows the stethoscope is still in his ears.

Truth & Consequences - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Perez pushes Carter into the window, Carter's stethoscope is around his neck with the earpieces on the right. At one point during the fight the stethoscope is around his neck with the earpieces on the left - and then returns to the other position.

The Peace of Wild Things - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: Peter is at his sister's house, in the kitchen, and they are talking about Carla. Jackie takes the dish towel off her shoulder and drapes it over a chair back and heads for the fridge. When the shot changes to her standing at the fridge, the towel is over her shoulder again. In the next shot, it's gone again.

Humpty Dumpty - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Carol is doing desk dury and says, "Hey, you're back" to Luca and her hand with a pen in it is up in the air. But when the shot changes, her hand is lying on her stomach. These alternate positions continue for a couple of shots.

How the Finch Stole Christmas - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Romano is operating on the heart patient Valerie, Lucy has an instrument inside the patient. The shot then changes so that we can see her face and as she says, "Dr. Romano," there is no longer anything in her hand and she is holding it up waiting for a nurse to pass her an instrument, which she takes, but then the shot goes behind her - she now has a different instrument in her hand, which is in a different position.

The Domino Heart - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: When Louise is talking about her mother's Parkinson's, the camera shot from behind her shows her left arm folded up in front of her with something red over it - but the shot from the other side shows the red item draped over her right arm.

The Domino Heart - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: Dr. Romano hands Lucy a pen so that Valerie's mother can sign a consent form. Lucy puts her hand on the pen and then the shot changes and we see her put it on the pen again.

Abby Road - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Elizabeth and her mother are having wine, in one shot her mother has put the glass down on the table, but in the next shot, from behind her, she has the glass in her hand again. There was no time for the change.

Robert Romano: The operation was a screaming success if your desired outcome was paralysis.

More quotes from ER

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.

Show generally

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