The Exam - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are studying, after hearing Roy's positive horoscope Johnny tells Chet his birthday is August 28th. However, in the pilot episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," Dixie has a get-together as a combination celebration of John's birthday and gathering of the supporters of the paramedic program. At the party Dixie offers the hors d'oeuvres to Johnny saying, "You first, it's your birthday," as he takes a mouthful of food. During that week we see people wearing coats, and the many deciduous trees (not the evergreens and palms) in LA County have already lost their leaves, which means it's certainly not summertime, August 28th.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: Before the fake eye test begins Captain Stanley hands each guy their own cheat sheet, and when Chet walks out of the day room upset about the eye test, John puts his cheat sheet into his shirt pocket just as they're being dispatched to the "accident and car fire." After the rescue, when John and Roy get back to the station John joins Chet by the lockers, and when John tries to prove that the eye test was a prank, John opens his locker and pulls out his cheat sheet, even though we saw him place it in his shirt pocket before the run.

The Promise - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John walk into Edna Self's house, in her closeups she's wearing a light beige floral robe, but in the shots facing the guys we can see that it's a dark solid color robe that's on the chair.

[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.
