The Game - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, after the boy ties a bowline knot in the rope attached to the van, when the mom gets into the van with her daughter, the reflections of two crew members, the cameraman and the top of the camera are all visible in the vent window, in two shots.

Other mistake: The USC game that Roy and Johnny are assigned to is supposed to be a sold-out game, but in closeup shots of the crowd around the guys, we can see that around the small crowd of extras used during the shoot, the seats are empty.

Continuity mistake: In the ER staff lounge, when Early and Dixie are watching The Game, there are five books lying on the TV with all their binding facing the right side in the closeups, but in the wide shots the books are facing the opposite way, with binding facing the left.

Continuity mistake: When the injured photographer is brought to the ER, Dix says treatment 7 and we see them heading into 7's door (which is around the corner from treatment 4 and 5, and has no color lines that run past its door) in the shot from the hallway. However, in the next shot from inside the treatment room, we can see they're not in treatment 7, but actually in treatment 4, note the red, green, and yellow lines on the hallway floor in front of its doorway, and treatment 7 has no lines that run past its doorway. When Dixie, Early, and Brackett step into the hallway it's even more obvious.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the USC game, after Johnny uses the Heimlich on the choking guy, when Roy asks him to take a deep breath Roy's left hand is on the man's chest, but in the next shot it is Roy's right hand that's on the man's chest.

Continuity mistake: After the paramedic teams are given their instructions before the start of the USC game, in the closeup the Trojan warrior is given his helmet and he has the sword on the saddle, but he does not have his shield when he turns to ride onto the field, yet in the next shot of the real-life recorded footage the Trojan warrior has the shield.

Continuity mistake: When John is putting the pompier belt around the waist of the man stuck up in the tree, he buckles it so the flap is going towards the man's right, but in the next shot as Chet climbs the ladder behind John, the life belt is around the man's waist the opposite way. Then, when John cuts the rope, the belt is back on the original way.

Continuity mistake: After bringing the sportscaster with the heart attack to Rampart, when Roy and John get back to the stadium then realize The Game's over, Roy carries the defib case and drug box, and John carries the resuscitator case and Biophone. All the cases switch hands and switch places between shots.

Visible crew/equipment: At The Game, when Roy and John respond to the possible heart attack which turns out to be a hyperventilating man, his wife stands behind Roy, and the bulging outline of the lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the back of her yellow blouse.

Continuity mistake: When Roy's shaving while Johnny's in the shower, Roy fills a bowl with cold water and tosses it into Johnny's shower stall, then goes back to shaving, and the shaving foam on Roy's face changes between these shots.

Breakdown - S6-E15

Charlie: I think you guys are playing games with me, and I don't like it.
Roy: Now, wait a minute. We're not playing games. We don't play games with the equipment...
Captain Stanley: Wait, hold on. C'mon everybody, look we're all on the same side here, aren't we?
Charlie: I wonder.
Captain Stanley: Charlie, why can't we put the squad in the shop and have us a reserve vehicle here?
Charlie: No, no, Hank. Not until I'm 100% sure that I can't fix it. If there's anything wrong with it. This coffee stinks. [Leaves the room.]
Captain Stanley: You guys playing some kind of joke on him?
John: We didn't make the coffee!
Captain Stanley: Not the coffee, you twit, the squad.
Roy: Cap, there's something wrong with that squad out there.
Captain Stanley: [sigh.] All right, if you say so... I made the coffee.
