Emergency!

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Other mistake: When the tones drop and the lights come on, waking up 51's guys in the middle of the night for the industrial fire, there are two closeups of the guys putting their feet into the boots and pulling up their turnout trousers. The problem is that the closeups are not Station 51's guys - note the beds, linens, walls, floor are all different. The two closeup shots are from the first episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act", and the guys are from Station 10.

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched in the middle of the night to the industrial fire, the dispatcher says "Time out 1:07," but later at Rampart after Brackett tells Johnny to stay the rest of the night because of the exposure to the radiation, we hear the voice on the PA announce, "Visiting hours are over" even though it's supposed to be at least 3:00 AM.

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the industrial fire, once they arrive there are a few shots of the crowd of bystanders, many in their robes. This footage is from the first episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act", during the factory fire at the start of the episode.

Other mistake: During the burglar's rescue, when Roy uses the K-12 to cut the shaft he stops and hands the K-12 to Johnny, and in the closeup we can see he has made only one vertical cut on one side and to his left the fiberglass material hasn't even been ripped off, but after Cap's close-up, Roy's part of the shaft has been cut away on the left and right sides going all the way around the shaft, which is quite impossible since Johnny had already taken the K-12 from Roy.

Other mistake: While searching for the location of the burglar in the shafts, after John asks for a boost up, we hear one of them say, "Cap," and Cap says, "Oh. Here's a ladder, Johnny," but the subtitles read that Roy says that. (It's worth seeing Johnny drop his helmet on Chet's head.) Soon we hear Johnny say, "Man, he's really stuck..." but subtitles read, "Damn, he's really stuck..." Then later, when John helps carry the cut shaft into the hall, Cap tells him, "Here, I'll take that," but subtitles read that John says that.

Other mistake: After Station 51 responds to the 'man caught in an air conditioning duct', when they get on the elevator its metal sliding doors and metal jamb on the lower lobby have scratches and dents on the exterior, and the same scratches and dents are on the doors and jamb, when they reach the upper level.

Other mistake: When 51's guys are watching the Adam-12 episode on TV, on that show just after Reed is knocked out by one of the hitmen, the hitman says "Nate would've blown his stack if I'd let you go," (refers to the hitman's partner, Nate), but Emergency!'s subtitles read, "Pete would've blown his stack...," (Pete is Jim Reed's partner) Then a few moments later the hitman Nate yells, "I wanna talk a deal," but subtitles read, "I wanna talk to Neil," and there isn't even anyone named Neil.

[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?

Mistakes

When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.

Trivia

In addition to Randolph Mantooth's brother Donald appearing in this episode, while Roy and John are in Mrs. Johnson's apartment, when Roy's telling John some of the plants' names, John picks up a plant from the table and asks Roy what its name is. And when Roy answers, "Sadie", John smiles at the plant and says, "Hey, Sadie, how you doing?" Sadie is Mantooth's mother's name.
