Emergency!

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny calls in to Rampart, Brackett answers and presses the two buttons to record the conversation, then tells Johnny to standby leaving the two buttons depressed, while the drunk driver is brought in. In the next shot, a closeup of Johnny, Brackett tells 51 to go ahead, and in the following shots Brackett continues to listen to Johnny, but none of the buttons are depressed on the tape machine to record the conversation. Then when Brackett gets off the line, he actually presses the tape machine's off button, as if the buttons had been depressed and the conversation recorded.

Continuity mistake: When Kelly and Gage have at it about the portrayal of Native Americans in film, DeSoto quips, "What are you picking on me for?" as he faces Gage in front of him. Gage then walks to the other side of the table and after he says, "We call that white man royalty syndrome," he puts his arm around Kelly, standing beside him. We are then shown DeSoto's reaction shot, who still faces Gage in the same direction as his earlier quip, and we also see Kelly behind him, but no Gage.

Continuity mistake: Treatment 4 is beside the nurses' station, as seen when Roy and John are with Debbie's parents, while the drunk driver is being wheeled through the double doors. Later, when Brackett suspects that Debbie's father is with the drunk, as he rushes to the drunk's room he goes through the double doors to get to the room, but while Brackett's in the room speaking to Debbie's father we can see treatment 4's door right behind Brackett, even though they're supposed to be in a completely different area.

Continuity mistake: When Engine 51 rolls up to the house with the fire in the toilet and then also at the hydrant that Roy and Johnny lock off, Engine 51's license plate reads 110856 (different engine). However, right after Chet proposes a treaty, when Station 51 is dispatched to the "construction accident," just as the front bay door opens in the shot from inside the apparatus bay, Engine 51's plate reads 180174.

Other mistake: When John and Roy are up on the scaffold with the injured man during the sniper fire, from the time they unfurl the large tarp and tie it off to the beams the sniper fires zero shots at them, zip, but later at the station Chet asks John, in all seriousness, if he got a good look at the tarp before they left, and tells him that the tarp looked like Swiss cheese due to the sniper fire.

Continuity mistake: When the drunk driver arrives in the ER and is taken into treatment 5, Vince is with the intoxicated man, but at the accident scene while they're still trying to get the little girl out of the car, after Roy checks Debbie's pupillary response, in the closeup of Debbie's mother Vince is still standing right beside her. Neat trick for Vince to be in two places at the same time.

Continuity mistake: Before climbing up to the man lying on the scaffolding, when Roy and Johnny put the pompier belts around their waists, both belts are buckled so the tongue buckles and carabiner hooks are at their right sides, but both stuntmen are wearing their belts the opposite way in the wide shots. Notice the axe sheaths are upside down on Johnny's and Roy's belts, but the stuntmen's pompier belts are buckled the right way.

Continuity mistake: Before Roy and Johnny climb up to the injured man (who was shot) lying on the scaffolding, they put on their life belts (pompier) with the tongue buckles and carabiner hooks towards their right sides, but both stuntmen wear their belts the opposite way. Also note the axe sheaths (attached to the pompier belts) are upside down on Roy and Johnny, but right-side up on the stuntmen.
