Emergency!

Correction: When Billy Zimmer is introduced to Roy and John, what he actually says is, "Gentlemen, how do you do."

Show generally

Corrected entry: Gage, DeSoto, and the crew are called to a serious truck/car fire accident scene, and are busy with putting the car fire out, while Gage helps DeSoto tend the wounded victims. The sky is overcast and cloudy, indicating rain possibly earlier in the day. This overcast remains during the hose-down. However, immediately after the fire is extinquished and both vehicles put out, the victims stabilized by ambulance, suddenly the day changes to bright sunlight and blue sky as Chief is calling in the OK.

Correction: Believe it or not, the weather can change that quickly in the Los Angeles basin. In late spring/early summer, an offshore marine layer often covers many locations near the coast with deep overcast overnight until late morning, when it can disappear very quickly - certainly in the hour or so it would take to put out a relatively small fire.

Women - S2-E9

Corrected entry: The sick child Dr. Joe and Dr. Mike are examining is supposed to be fatally poisoned, but his head changes position twice during subsequent shots.

Correction: If the child is only sick at the time, then, even if incurably poisoned, it doesn't stop them moving their head until they're actually dead.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Factual error: 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 to 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.

Gossip - S4-E3

Ann: I didn't mean any harm.
Dixie: No, of course not... All you've been doing is telling people that Dr. Morton is deeply in debt.
Ann: I didn't say that was a certainty. I said there was a possibility of it.
Dixie: You've discussed it with patients, which is unforgivable. And after I specifically told you it was none of your business. How long have you been a nurse?
Ann: Six years.
Dixie: Then you ought to know that you hear things and see things about doctors, and patients, that are very personal and confidential, and you just don't go around repeating them, because you can do harm. And I'm telling you to cut it out right now.
Ann: I think I can talk about whatever I want.
Dixie: No you can't! Not here. Not while you're working for me. I won't tolerate it. Got it?

The Promise - S3-E11

Trivia: During Richard's rescue from the ledge at Rampart, the snorkel that Roy and Brackett climb onto is Truck 127, from Station 127 aka Station 51. Truck 127 is used in many episodes requiring a snorkel, including 1x6, "Dealer's Wild" and 3x16, "Fools." There's a particularly nice shot at the end of this episode, when Engine 51 and Squad 51 are parked parallel to each other, and when Johnny responds to dispatch that Squad 51 is available, Truck 127 drives away between 51's vehicles. Nice touch.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Question: The old man that comes in with his wife that can't breathe, the one that the head nurse tries to counsel and tempts him with a cup of coffee. I believe he is Alfred Hitchcock, though his name is not listed anywhere. Alfred Hitchcock is known for his cameo appearances in his own shows and in other shows. Can someone confirm that this is him? This is driving me nuts... It is toward the end of the episode, but I cannot give you times.
