Emergency!

Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dixie gives John a tetanus shot because he fell from a skateboard onto cactus, we know they're all in treatment 1, because when Johnny and Roy are at the open door we can see the door and wall (with fire extinguisher) on the opposite side of the hall, but in the next shot from the hallway he and Roy are leaving treatment 4, which is opposite treatment 3.

Gossip - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: While the boy who has cyanide poisoning is in the ER, Dixie looks through his clothing and finds carved peach pits, and when she directs Brackett's attention to all the carved pits, the items change when it cuts to the closeup. Additionally, that closeup starts out being farther, and we can see that Dixie is not beside the table before it zooms in.

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is being dispatched to the fire and explosion at Martell Industries, the other companies called are Station 36 and Engine 14, but we see Engine 236 at the scene even though they were not called. This is before Captain Stanley asks dispatch for the second alarm.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny walk into the courtroom, Johnny and the young lawyer kneel down beside the patient's right side, but in the patient's closeup Johnny's kneeling on the opposite side of the resuscitator, near the patient's head, where Johnny will walk to a few shots later, when that young lawyer will once again walk over and kneel down.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and Roy are standing near the nurses' station, Johnny admits that he promised to take care of Paula's dog, and when Johnny turns his head toward Dixie and Brackett we can see the base station behind him, and in the next shot when Dixie and Brackett walk over, a clipboard has suddenly appeared between the telephone and Biocom EKG unit.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Johnny's on the Biophone establishing contact with Rampart, there's a closeup of the GE telephone at Rampart's base station, and behind it we can see the tape machine switch is turned to the right, in the 'on' position, but when it cuts to Dixie walking over and responding, the tape machine is not on yet.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the little boy who received an electric shock is brought into the ER, in the shot from the hallway he's taken into treatment 4, which is beside the nurses' station, but in the next shot from inside the room, we can see treatment 2 on the opposite side of the hallway, which is next door to treatment 4. This means they're actually in treatment 1, not 4.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start, after Station 51 is dispatched to the apartment fire, when a musician asks Captain Stanley for help removing instruments from the burning building, the next shot showing Truck 98 rolling up is footage from 2x13, "Drivers", during the fire at the Atlas Hotel. We can even see the smoke through the Atlas Hotel's windows, and Squad 51 parked across the street. More footage from the Atlas Hotel fire is shown when Engine 16 rolls up. Additional footage from other episodes are shown as well, when we see helmets and rigs bearing company numbers that were not called to this fire.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When 127 hoses down the underside of the overturned trailer, we should be able to see the water spray while John and Roy try to get to the trapped driver in the cab, but we don't even though we hear the audio of the hosing.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: While Squad 51 leaves the brushfire area with the looter (Tony Dow), when Johnny requests a water drop the helicopter pilot says that he's Copter 2, but the footage we see of the chopper flying overhead is of Copter 14 and Copter 10.

Isolation - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are at 86's treating everyone who is being brought in, when Johnny's on the Biophone with Brackett, in Brackett's closeups at the base station, we can see that the actor has a very swollen upper lip. When the officer who was hit by lightning is brought into the ER, Brackett's lip is much less swelled, and more the way it normally looks, but when Brackett is back at the base station, his upper lip is swelled up once again.

Continuity mistake: When the Battalion Chief's car arrives on scene at the factory fire, he and the driver get out of the car, then it cuts to shots as they both stand beside the wall while the Chief talks to dispatch over the HT, but a few shots later we see the driver just getting out of the car as Engine 36 passes.

Continuity mistake: When the man who was electrocuted is loaded onto 127's snorkel, we can see that he's wearing a white crew-neck undershirt under the denim shirt, but at the ER when his denim shirt is open there's nothing underneath.
