Revealing mistake: En route to the pick-up truck hanging from the freeway on-ramp, there is a flipped shot of Engine 51 and Squad 51 as they drive under the freeway before the camera pans in towards the car. Some giveaways are the reversed '51' on Engine 51 and the reversed 'road construction ahead' sign.Super Grover
Other mistake: At the start of shift, after Roy digs into Johnny for calling Joanne, Station 51 is dispatched to the children lost in the flooding storm drain and time out is 08:32. Then at the scene, the officer says that they got a report about two missing boys two hours earlier, and that a witness saw teenagers pull up the manhole cover just before noon, and another witnessed the two boys playing around the open manhole. So what time is it supposed to be - early in the morning or some time in the afternoon? The times just don't sync.Super Grover
Audio problem: At the start of the episode, while Johnny's mopping and Roy's fidgeting with the resuscitator, during their conversation, in the background we hear Captain Stanley talking to the other guys in the kitchen. The key words we hear Cap say are, "New problem location in our area...Molded products...Cardboard cartons...Two rows, aisles in between, up to 8 ft high...Bottoms get soaked." Then we hear Cap repeat, "New problem locations in our area," and continues, "1806 North Oak," and we hear all the guys laugh, though nothing's funny. Captain Stanley's dialogue is from 2x1, "Problem," at the start of that episode.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 responds to 'man injured', when they arrive at the house, Johnny asks Roy if there's a dog on the roof, and it cuts to a shot of Sheba, the dog, just as she glances toward the tree, and behind the tree we can see the moving legs of a crew member, likely Sheba's trainer.Super Grover
Other mistake: After Roy tells Captain Stanley, over the HT, that he and Johnny may have found something in the flooding storm drain, Captain Stanley uses his HT to contact Marco and Chet (who are driving Squad 51 while John and Roy are down below), and says "Squad 51, Engine 51...," but the subtitles read, "Car 51, Engine 51..."Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Johnny has gotten Sheba off the roof, he and Roy stand by ladder as Sheba takes off after the cat again, and in the shot of the dog running across the roof Roy and Johnny are gone - the ladder stands alone, but in the next shot the paramedics are by the ladder again. Also note that the door behind the ladder is alternately closed or open, depending on the shot.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny climbs the ladder and then picks up Sheba to carry her off the roof, the outline of the mic transmitter is visible on the back of his shirt. Additionally, as he's lifting Sheba the big dog pushes up against the front of Johnny's shirt, and we hear the crackling noises that were picked up on Johnny's hidden mic.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy have to go in search of the two boys lost in the storm drain, the air cylinder that Johnny grabs from the squad has two large red stickers, but when Roy and Johnny climb down below, Johnny's air cylinder has changed - both of their tanks now have the large arrow stickers.Super Grover
Other mistake: While 51's guys are at the accident scene by the freeway on-ramp, when Roy's standing on the ladder and says the car door's jammed, Captain Stanley tells Chet and Marco to get the Porta Power, but subtitles read "Jack, Marco, we need the Porta Power," even though there's no character named Jack.Super Grover
