Continuity mistake: After Johnny and Roy bring the injured fireman to the ER, Emma walks up to them in the hallway to ask why they haven't put out the fire yet, and the large handbag hanging from her left arm is suddenly on her right arm when it cuts to the close-up.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: After Johnny and Roy find the motorcycle and its injured rider, Johnny wraps his arm/shoulder area, but the way it's wrapped - whether or not it's over the shoulder and/or at his waist, and the amount that's wound around his body, significantly differs between shots until they see Vince at the base station.

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is being dispatched to the brush fire, there's black tape on the chrome trim of the squad's lightbar, but when Squad 51 arrives on scene the black tape has vanished. Then later at Rampart, after Brackett calls Roy a hose jockey, the black tape is back, but vanishes again when they rescue the injured looter.

Continuity mistake: While Squad 51 leaves the brushfire area with the looter (Tony Dow), when Johnny requests a water drop the helicopter pilot says that he's Copter 2, but the footage we see of the chopper flying overhead is of Copter 14 and Copter 10.

Revealing mistake: When the boy is discharged from the ER and is reunited with his dog, John and Roy are standing near the squad watching the reunion, and the usually highly reflective surface of the passenger side spotlight has been sprayed with a dulling spray, to temporarily dull the surface.

Continuity mistake: After Johnny and Roy get back to the fire's base station and hand the looter over to Vince, when they find Grover in the pen with the other dogs, Roy checks the dog's ID tag and in the two wide shots Roy's holding it with one hand while the other hand is up on the gate, but in closeup both of Roy's hands are holding the collar and ID tag.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John leave the ER after the baby delivery, the base station dispatches them to the motorcycle accident, and in the next shot as the squad turns the corner, there are three people in Squad 51, we see Roy, Johnny and someone seated between them, while they're en route.

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy helps the looter into the squad, when Johnny goes to the motorcycle and finds the leather bag full of jewelry, the mic wires that run from under his shirt/belt into his right pants pocket (with the transmitter bulge) are visible as he bends down.

Visible crew/equipment: After the looter is helped into the squad, just as Roy gets into the driver's seat, the reflection of camera equipment becomes visible on Squad 51's vent window (not to be confused with Roy's arm or the reflection of the red wing mirror).

Revealing mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to the motorcycle accident, there are wide shots of the squad driving through the hills, then in the closeups of Roy and John, the squad shakes from side to side to mimic driving, but we can see that the surrounding rocky area behind the squad (matte painting) does not actually change at all.

Other mistake: When Chet Kelly breaks his glass that he was drying in the first shot after showing Station 51, Captain Hammer is on the phone and begins walking to Chet when he groans after breaking the glass. Then it switches to another shot where Marco Lopez yells "Medic!", and Captain Hammer reaches Chet. After that it switches to a shot where John Gage and Roy DeSoto walk over to Chet and the angle goes wide. At this point Captain Hammer hangs up the phone again and begins to walk over to Chet again. When it switches to the shot where Johnny and Roy reach Chet, Hammer is already there like he was when Marco yells for Johnny and Roy. No one else, like Mike Stoker, does this. (00:00:05)

Continuity mistake: When Johnny finds the looter's leather bag with the stolen jewelry, the bag's large front flap goes from being flipped open facing Johnny to the opposite way, between shots.

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?
