Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Captain Stanley are rescuing the people trapped inside Olive View Hospital, they are wearing distinctively marked SCBA tanks on their backs, and when all three firemen exit the doorway, Cap is wearing an entirely different tank, and the tanks that Johnny and Roy are wearing have been switched. Then when Johnny jumps off Engine 82, his tank differs again, and when he walks over to the Battalion Chief it's changed yet again.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: During the rescue of the two boys on the tower, a few shots after Chet starts climbing the stairs, there's a long shot looking up at Roy and John, and we can see Chet at the last set of stairs at the bottom left of the screen, and a few shots later from the same long angle, we see Chet reach the top. However, quite a few shots later, after the old man comments about job security, we see Chet again, but he's nowhere near the top yet.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy must climb the tower to rescue the two boys, they both buckle the pompier belts around their waists with the large carabiner hooks at their left sides and walk towards the tower, but in the next shot Johnny's belt is on the opposite way, at his right, as they start to climb the stairs. Then the life belt flips back to the way it was originally.

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?

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.
