Paper Work - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: After Roy and John meet the new supply nurse, when Squad 51 rolls back into the station the license plate number on the back of Engine 51 ends in 174, but the engine's plate number should read 999058. Engine 127's license plate number is 180174.

Other mistake: After 51 rescues the boy who was stuck in the storm drain and is brought to the ER, Brackett uses the laryngoscope for endotracheal intubation, but the problem is we can see when Brackett cups his left hand, he merely places the distal end of the laryngoscope over the top of his hand, not actually down into the boy's mouth.

Other mistake: When the foreman and secretary are rescued at the warehouse fire, two shots after we see the foreman climbing down the ladder, there's a shot of the grey steel drums marked 'acetone' with two lying on their sides on a wood pallet, while the guys hose down the fire. What's funny is that in the next shot there's a disposable plastic cup that has suddenly appeared on that pallet. Obviously while shooting the different takes one of the actors or crew members left their cup on the pallet before they resumed filming.

Continuity mistake: When John's in the storm drain with the boy, in the closeups the water rushing from the broken hydrant has a very strong current, and Roy's holding the boy's head up out of the water, but in the wide shots the current is nearly calm, nowhere as intense as the closeups, and Roy's not holding the boy's head.

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, when the camera zooms in on the words 'Los Angeles County Fire Station 51' which are attached to the side of the building, we can see that this shot is actually played in reverse - notice the cars/trucks behind the station are driving backwards. Additionally, note that the real 127's rig is seen in the driveway to the right. Also interesting to notice are the upper/lower metal bars which are attached to the bricks, where we can see the bars are much longer after 'Station 51', with a space for something missing, due to the fact that is was made to hold '127' on it.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the boy who is stuck in the storm drain, note that the shoes both paramedics are wearing are flat bottom, dark grey, water-type shoes, and not their regular black uniform shoes. Then, when the boy is lying on the grass, Johnny's in his uniform shoes, though Roy is still in those water-type shoes.

Continuity mistake: When the car swerves to miss the dog and hits the fire hydrant, the area of ground around the front tire is bare, but in the closeup as the man and his son exit the car, that area is now covered in vegetation, enough to cover half the tire.

Continuity mistake: When the new supply nurse gives Roy the box of supplies, in his right hand Roy holds the receipt and supply box, and in his left hand is the handie-talkie, but in the closeup Roy holds the supply box with his left hand and a bag of saline in his right hand.

Other mistake: When the little boy is stuck in the storm drain with the rushing water from the broken hydrant, Johnny climbs into the manhole and is submerged up to his shoulders in water while dealing with the boy, but when they lift the boy out and lay him on the grass, Johnny is quite dry except for some wet patches on his shirt.

Quotes

[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?
