Hypochondri-Cap - S6-E23

Revealing mistake: After Johnny's line gets snarled while testing Wally's equipment at the studio, when Roy lowers himself on his own line wearing his lifebelt, we can see the added carabiners that are attached to the lifebelt which go down into Roy's pants, and are presumably attached to the extra support the actor is wearing under his pants.

Revealing mistake: At the studio, in the overhead shot just as the squad is about to reach the building where Johnny will be testing Wally's equipment, the 'Black Tower', which houses Universal's executive offices, is visible in the background, and then in the roof shots when each of the guys repels down individually, the Sheraton-Universal is visible in the background.

Continuity mistake: On the roof at the studio, Wally sets up John's gear and anchors his rappelling line onto a single carabiner which is attached directly to the belt support around John's waist. Yet when Johnny flips upside down while rappelling down, in the closeups when Roy joins him, that carabiner is now locked off onto another carabiner, which is attached to John's belt, and both of their locking mechanisms are red. Then when John's on the ground, the carabiner attached to his belt and anchor is entirely silver.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John are at the studio so John can test out Wally's rappelling gear, on the roof John's wearing his medical holster, but Roy is not, but when each rappel down in the wide shots they're both wearing it. Then in their closeups while hanging on their lines, Roy's wearing his medical holster, but Johnny's has vanished, then on the ground Johnny's wearing his and Roy's has vanished.

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?
