Emergency!

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy visit Mrs. Johnson on the 6th floor, they take the elevator near the nurses' station, at the south end of the ER wing, and when they exit the elevator they turn left to room 603. This is completely impossible considering the actual floor plan of the hospital, since in all the exterior shots of the ER it is only 2-storeys.

Fools - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the man in full arrest on the tower at the refinery, Johnny hooks up the Datascope with the wire, but in all the overhead shots there is no wire at the back of the Datascope monitor.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Before climbing up to the man lying on the scaffolding, when Roy and Johnny put the pompier belts around their waists, both belts are buckled so the tongue buckles and carabiner hooks are at their right sides, but both stuntmen are wearing their belts the opposite way in the wide shots. Notice the axe sheaths are upside down on Johnny's and Roy's belts, but the stuntmen's pompier belts are buckled the right way.

Promotion - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: During the structure fire, after the security guard has been carried down the ladder, in the interior shot when Johnny follows, he places his injured right leg out the window first, but in the next exterior shot it's his left leg which is out the window, then it's back to his right leg being first out the window.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Chet go to Rampart to visit Johnny on their day off, Dixie tells them that Johnny's in room 205, but when Chet and Roy walk in the number on the door is 230.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chet flags down the young driver to get help for the traffic accident victims, the driver's side wing mirror is tilted out at a wide angle in the long shot, but in the next closeup the wing mirror has been pushed flat up against the car, so as not to block the actor during the conversation.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on scene at the boating accident, John contacts Rampart, and in the closeup of the base station telephone, we see the old reel-to-reel tape recorder that was used during season 1, behind the old GE Deskon 3-button telephone. In the next shot Rampart's base station is back to normal.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When the stokes with the boating accident victim is being loaded onto the Harbor Patrol boat, Roy's standing behind the boat in the water and Johnny's in the boat with the stokes, but in the next shot they've switched places, Roy's in the boat and Johnny's behind the boat. Others have also switched places between shots.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When 51's guys are standing around Johnny's bed looking at the cat, in the cat's closeups she is facing the locker room, but in the other shots she is facing the opposite way, with the guys behind her.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: After 17's Captain Harmell has fallen through the warehouse roof, when Roy wraps the tape around Harmell's leg splint, the entire splint is covered by tape when they lift him up the ladder, but when Harmell is carried out of the snorkel, there is much less tape - it's wrapped around the splint only 5-6 times.

Camera Bug - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Johnny's leaning through the windshield of the truck carrying dynamite, using the jaws to free the driver, Marco's behind Johnny with the hose fogging them down, and Johnny's clothes get soaked, but in the closeup as Johnny pulls the driver from his seat, Johnny's shirt is completely dry.

Boot - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: After Station 51 responds to the stove fire and puts it out, the frustrated woman tosses her handbag over her shoulder with the buckle behind her, but in the next shot the handbag has flipped over with buckle at the front.

Boot - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the woman whose hair is caught in the meat grinder, time out is 12:34, and right after that quick run they stop by Rampart. Back at the station, after Chet mentions that when they started their shift that morning Boot was fine, they're all dispatched to the gasoline tanker traffic accident, and the time out is 9:18 in the AM. Then the next run Squad 51 responds to is the woman caught in the mixer, and the time out is 15:54.

Honest - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Epps begs Dr. Morton to tell her the truth about her son's condition, the stethoscope is hanging around Morton's neck with the headset on his left side and the chestpiece on his right side, but then it flips to the opposite way, and then back again, between shots.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: During the rescue of the two boys on the tower, a few shots after Chet starts climbing the stairs, there's a long shot looking up at Roy and John, and we can see Chet at the last set of stairs at the bottom left of the screen, and a few shots later from the same long angle, we see Chet reach the top. However, quite a few shots later, after the old man comments about job security, we see Chet again, but he's nowhere near the top yet.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy must climb the tower to rescue the two boys, they both buckle the pompier belts around their waists with the large carabiner hooks at their left sides and walk towards the tower, but in the next shot Johnny's belt is on the opposite way, at his right, as they start to climb the stairs. Then the life belt flips back to the way it was originally.

Helpful - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: After Johnny has gotten Sheba off the roof, he and Roy stand by ladder as Sheba takes off after the cat again, and in the shot of the dog running across the roof Roy and Johnny are gone - the ladder stands alone, but in the next shot the paramedics are by the ladder again. Also note that the door behind the ladder is alternately closed or open, depending on the shot.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John are in the apparatus bay talking about Joanne, just after Roy walks away, Boot steals the armboard splint package with the writing facing up in his mouth, but when Boot hides under the squad the reverse side is up in his mouth.

Helpful - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy have to go in search of the two boys lost in the storm drain, the air cylinder that Johnny grabs from the squad has two large red stickers, but when Roy and Johnny climb down below, Johnny's air cylinder has changed - both of their tanks now have the large arrow stickers.

[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.
