Equipment - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Engine 8 is dispatched to "man unconscious at construction site," we see Engine 8 going past Curson Ave, then the next shot Engine 8 is driving up from the other direction of Curson Ave and passes it going the other way. Neither are flipped shots. Other than seeing the sign for Curson Ave, other giveaways are the same signs or parked vehicles.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the guys are listening to the baseball game on the radio, dispatch drops tones for Engine 16 and only Squad 51, yet Chet turns the radio off, and all the engine company guys rush out of the day room then head to their rig, even though it's only Roy and John that were dispatched.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: While the judge and young lawyer are doing CPR to help, Roy's tearing off strips of tape and placing them on his pants (for IV as usual), then after he asks Johnny, "Were you able to get in touch with Rampart?," in the next shot all those strips of tape have vanished from his pant leg, only to reappear when Roy defibs the patient.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: After Johnny and Roy find the motorcycle and its injured rider, Johnny wraps his arm/shoulder area, but the way it's wrapped - whether or not it's over the shoulder and/or at his waist, and the amount that's wound around his body, significantly differs between shots until they see Vince at the base station.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While Roy and John are at the boatyard searching for the girl's severed hand, when they walk into the mess of lumber neither of them can be seen in the other one's closeup, even though they both start looking around in the same spot, at precisely the same time.

Right at Home - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: When the unconscious boy is brought to the ER, he's taken into treatment 2, with a windowless door, but when Early is doing the lumbar tap on the boy, the door behind Early has a window, and also by the way the room is set up, we know it's treatment 1 he's in, not 2.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Ruthie is wheeled into the ER, Dixie tells the attendants to put her in the treatment room where Dr. Early's waiting, and they wheel her into treatment 2 which has a windowless door, but when they're in the room the door has a window, which means she's in treatment 1, not 2. Plus the fact that both treatment rooms are set up differently.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of Roy and Johnny at the whale tank, the maintenance guy behind them is standing between the red bleacher seats and purple seats below, but in Roy and Johnny's closeups the guy is standing between the two top purple bleacher seats, then when the whale splashes, it goes back and forth yet again.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Continuity mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, he's wheeled into treatment 2, which has a window on its door, and is on the side of the hallway with the yellow line closest to it. Later we see treatment 1 twice, when Vince brings in the burglary suspect with a bullet in his leg, and also when John and Roy rush the baby to the ER. They used the same room as treatment 1 and treatment 2, but there are just two treatment rooms on that side of the hallway and only one of them has a window on its door - the one that's opposite the nurses' station, treatment 1.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, we see the squad and engine pull back into the station, and one of the guys - it would be either Marco or Chet, is standing on the engine's tailboard motioning to Mike, who is driving backwards, but in the next shot both Marco and Chet are seated in their jumpseats as Engine 51 comes to a stop.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the structure fire, when Roy and Johnny rescue the man in room 22 by breaking the window, the door to room A is right beside them and we can see the axe mark on the door and the damage to the wall. When Johnny and Roy go back through the window to look for the missing Dr. Bennis, as Johnny uses the K-12, the door to room A now has many more axe marks and the damaged wall is far less damaged.

[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.
