Lockdown - S8-E22

Deliberate mistake: When the two lawyers were wheeled in by ambulance riding on the same gurney entered the ER the male had a bandage on his foot because they had been walking on hot coals. The hospital staff smelled smoke coming from the bandage on the male lawyers foot. It burst into flames and Abby used a Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher. Something other than powder came out because the dry chemical powder would have made a large cloud of actor choking dust all over the set. The use of a C02 would have been a better choice. You would still get the fire fighting effect with out the mess.

Never Say Never - S8-E4

Character mistake: In the season 8 episode 'Never Say Never,' In the opening scene before the credits, Dr. Susan Lewis returns to the ER to meet with Mark Greene for lunch. She is standing at the admit. desk and asks Frank, then Luca where she can find Dr. Green. The shot then pans out to a view of her back, exposing the curtain areas. In that shot, Dr. Green walks right past her, no more than 10 feet away. Due to their angles, there is no possible way neither of them would have not seen each other at that moment, yet he walks past, and she continues her hunt for him.

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.
