Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: On scene at the drunk's car accident with the little girl trapped in the car, in the shots facing the girl's mother she's standing with Vince behind the back of the car, near the crowd of bystanders, but in Roy's closeups while he's in the car with Debbie getting her vitals, we see the mother's legs (note her yellow polka-dot dress) right behind Roy, near the open front passenger door.

Continuity mistake: After Early tells Dixie about the patient with an unknown illness, in the shot from the hallway, we see Carol taking him into treatment 4, which has a windowless door, but when Morton is examining him in the shot from inside the room there's a window on the door (looks like treatment 6).

Continuity mistake: Just after the paramedics witness the purse snatching, when Johnny and Ed take off after the two purse snatchers, there are four cars parked at the curb in front of the squad, but just before Johnny leaps over the white picket fence, behind him we see that there are now six parked cars in front of the squad.

Crash - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the babysitter runs into Rampart with the child who swallowed phenobarbital pills, Brackett picks the boy up and carries him into treatment 5 (window on door), but in the following shots from inside the room we can see they're actually in treatment 2 (windowless door and set up differently). Then after they place the pacemaker Dixie leaves the room, and in the shot from the hallway she's coming out of treatment 5.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Roy breaks the key in the squad's ignition, while he's holding the broken piece in the two wide shots there's something dangling from the key's hole (another key/keychain), but in the closeup it's just the broken bit in his hand.

Continuity mistake: After Dr. Early is called a miracle worker and then again tries unsuccessfully to get the apple from the machine, it cuts to Squad 51 pulling backwards into the apparatus bay, and the engine we see parked in the bay is the Crown from the first two seasons, not their current Ward LaFrance.

Continuity mistake: When Roy walks into the ER with the chemical burn patient they rescued from a kitchen filled with hydrogen sulfide, Dixie tells them treatment 1 which has a windowless door, but in the shot from inside the room the door has a window, and we can tell it's treatment 3 they're in.

[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.
