An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are on Tom Jensen's show, the outline of Johnny's lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the front, right of Johnny's shirt, over his belt, as he and Roy begin their demonstration, and also after Jensen's crew member electrocutes himself when Johnny and Roy carry and lay him down near the table. This has nothing to do with the wired mics that are clipped onto Roy's and Johnny's ties for Tom Jensen's show.

Continuity mistake: While John and Roy begin rehearsing in front of Marco and Chet, when John lights the flame his watch reads 10:00, but just a few minutes later when John puts the sawdust into the strainer his watch reads 10:30. When Squad 51 is dispatched to "sick child," timeout is 12:13, and after John and Roy get back to the ER the second time after searching the garage for the poison it's 1:05 at the ER. Then when they're on the Tom Jensen Show, as Roy tries to light the flame John's watch reads 11:30, but when he and Roy are treating the electrical shock victim, his watch reads 4:00.

Continuity mistake: At the ferris wheel, when the boy starts to climb down to help the man in the lower seat, in the closeup he steps on the two yellow, fluorescent tube light bulbs causing the bulbs to plummet and shatter on the ground below. The problem is that those two fluorescent bulbs did not even exist in the prior wide shots, that lamp socket space was empty.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are rehearsing in front of Captain Stanley and the other guys, after Johnny uses the bug spray on the flame, in the wide shots Roy's hands are in his pockets and the hairspray can is on the table, but in the closeups Roy's still holding the hairspray can.

Continuity mistake: While at the Tom Jensen Show, after one of their crew receives an electrical shock, Roy comes back from the squad and carries the drug box in his right hand and Biophone in his left, but next shot they've switched hands.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny walk into the day room all spiffy and ready to leave for the Tom Jensen Show, Chet's legs go back and forth from being uncrossed to crossed, depending on the angle of the shot. As an aside, something to watch for is Henry the dog burying his face between Chet's legs, and Chet's reaction.

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is dispatched to the man who's ill on the ferris wheel, just as Engine 51 rolls out of the apparatus bay, in the closeup we see the reflection of the array lighting and the reflector screen on the side of the engine.
