Continuity mistake: At the freight yard when the two men are talking to each other after the Montana man says that the operator has been a good friend, the front of the boxcar is seen, and some fire vehicles (a battalion car and a deluge) are visible on the left of the screen. When Engine & Squad 51 come on the scene, those fire vehicles have disappeared. (00:33:55 - 00:36:05)Benjamin Lesley
Other mistake: While Brackett is a patient at Rampart, he phones to inquire about Tina, and when he rips off his hospital ID bracelet we can see the wood grain bathroom door as he heads for Tina's room. When he's in Tina's room, the wood grain bathroom door in her room is identical to the door in Brackett's room, revealing the same room is used for both patients.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy, who are off duty, show up at the nurses' station so Johnny can sell some more tickets, note the paramedic status board on the wall in the base station room. In the closeups 51's red and yellow magnets show that both the engine and squad are at the station, but in the wide shots both magnets are in the other columns.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: At the freight yard fire, after the two men with toxic fume inhalation are located and rescued from the boxcar, Battalion 14 arrives and we see that the Battalion Chief is McConnike, and Captain Stanley even calls him "Chief." The problem is that it's not until episode 6x14, "Insanity Epidemic," in which McConnike is made the Battalion Chief, and that causes Cap to act a bit like a paranoid nut due to an incident years before. Episodes were often aired out of the order of which they were filmed. As an aside, when McConnike arrives, watch him trying to put on his turnout.Super Grover
Other mistake: At the fire in the freight yard, Captain Stanley asks the dispatcher to respond a second-alarm assignment, and then we see Engine 8 pulling out of their apparatus bay and driving down the street. The problem is that this particular shot of Engine 8 is from season 5, episode "Equipment", when Johnny was doing some overtime at Station 8, and we can actually see Johnny sitting on Engine 8.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Dixie visits Brackett in his hospital room, he insists on seeing the little girl from the accident, but she convinces him to get back into bed. Then as he says "Alright, but later I want to see her," the actor's tape mark is visible on the floor near the second bed, where Dixie stands as Brackett gets back in bed.Super Grover
