Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy and John eat lunch with the sheriff and decide to head to the lake after lunch, when they both get into the squad car, we can see the reflection of the cameraman, who's wearing jeans and a dark shirt, in the wing mirror, as he walks closer to the car and bends down. We can also see the legs of another crew member standing behind him.

Revealing mistake: After rescuing the burn victim from the boat's explosion, Johnny and Roy are at the back of the camper with the victim, while the victim's wife drives the camper to the clinic, but when they arrive at the clinic the camper hasn't even stopped yet, and we can see the woman's legs at the side of the camper, waiting for her cue to come rushing to the camper's rear door when her husband is brought out.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny cross the road to talk to the sheriff about the injured rock climbers, Roy does not have gloves in the back pocket of his jeans or anywhere else, nor does he take gloves from the sheriff's trunk with the other climbing gear, before he and Johnny begin their ascent. However, when he reaches the boys, Roy has a pair of thick work gloves sticking out of his back pocket.

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny begin their ascent, the injured rock climbers are shown in a closeup, which then zooms out so we can see the entire area to the left, and the only rope up there is the boys' red rope. When Johnny reaches the boys, he's pulling himself up with the help of a blue rope, which has already been anchored in place near the injured boys. So who put it up there and anchored it? Not the injured boys. Not Johnny. Not Roy, who is still down below.

Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny rappels down alone, so he can inform the sheriff of the situation with the injured climbers, when he talks to the sheriff beside the squad car, the reflections of the camera/dolly/crane are visible on the chrome corner of the sheriff's car.

Visible crew/equipment: Right after rescuing the two injured climbers, when John and Roy are in the back of the pickup truck with them, just as the pickup drives off to follow Sheriff Bittner's squad car, we can see the reflection of crew and the camera rig on the Land Rover's windows.

Continuity mistake: In the scenes where Johnny and Roy are transporting the injured hikers in the back of the pickup truck, Roy's watch appears, disappears, then appears again.

Continuity mistake: When Bittner brings John and Roy back to the lake for the fishing, the boat on the lake explodes and Roy and John dive into the lake and rescue the burn victim, but when they're at the back of the camper with the victim, heading to the clinic, Roy's and John's jeans and shirts are completely dry.

Revealing mistake: While in Santa Rosa County, after Roy and John rescue the two injured rock climbers, and also later after they rescue the burn victim from the lake, the Richards ambulance that transports the patients has license plate number "Z125631" which is pretty funny. That plate number should look familiar, as it's the same plate number on the ambulance in LA County, seen in many episodes such as "Rules of Order", "Unlikely Heirs", and "Not Available."

Visible crew/equipment: When Sheriff Bittner, John, and Roy are driving to the lake after eating lunch together, the bar for the mounted camera is visible on the driver's door, which is only seen in the interior shots of the car.

Visible crew/equipment: After Sheriff Bittner breaks the door's window to get into the clinic, when they open the door just before they walk inside, the camera's tripod, the corner of the reflector screen, and a crew member wearing a blue/white cap are all visible through the doorway by the porch area.

Continuity mistake: During the rescue of the injured rock climbers, the stunt guys for Johnny and Roy are dressed similarly to their counterparts, except for their boots - the styles and colors are entirely different.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy find the slings, swami belts and carabiners in the sheriff's trunk, Roy takes an orange sling and Johnny takes a dark green sling, both take swamis and biners, and they start their climb. However, while they're climbing Johnny has an additional light green sling and a yellow chest harness, and Roy has an additional purple chest harness.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are searching the sheriff's trunk and find the slings, swami belts and carabiners, Johnny takes hold of the green sling, but next shot it's suddenly swung diagonally around his neck and arm.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are climbing to get to the injured climbers, once Roy reaches the boys he goes off belay in the closeup, but in the long shots (with the stunt guys) Roy is still locked off on the rope, and then we hear Roy say, "Johnny, give me a little more slack," though in the closeup he's not even attached.
