Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: At the freight yard fire, after the two men with toxic fume inhalation are located and rescued from the boxcar, Battalion 14 arrives and we see that the Battalion Chief is McConnike, and Captain Stanley even calls him "Chief." The problem is that it's not until episode 6x14, "Insanity Epidemic," in which McConnike is made the Battalion Chief, and that causes Cap to act a bit like a paranoid nut due to an incident years before. Episodes were often aired out of the order of which they were filmed. As an aside, when McConnike arrives, watch him trying to put on his turnout.

[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?

Mistakes

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.
