Emergency!

Frequency - S3-E1

Character mistake: When Brackett and Early are dealing with three squads at the base station at the same time, Squad 51 has two victims - father and son, Squad 18 has a pulmonary edema, and Squad 36 has only one bicycle rider with severe head injuries, because the second rider died, so the total is four out of five being dealt with. Back at the station, after Johnny asked Dixie about the condition of all the victims, he tells Roy that the father and son are both responding, so is Squad 18's pulmonary edema, and for Squad 36's bike accident, that "both" are coming out of the coma, which totals five victims. Then Roy responds, "Four saves out of five victims. That's pretty good." Johnny should not have said, "both" since it was just one rider.

Character mistake: Days after Drew's death (Roy and Johnny had two days off after Drew's death), during the meeting that Brackett has with the four paramedic units, one of 59's guys asks, "What do we do when we have this overload situation on the same frequency? Two squads, like 51 and us today?" The situation with the frequency did not happen "today" as he said, it happened at least three days prior.

Character mistake: In the morning, when Roy and Johnny are by the lockers, talking about what Johnny did on his days off, Roy tells Johnny, "I came on this morning, guys on A shift told me that they had a meeting with Brackett at Rampart yesterday." It could not have been "A shift" because Roy and Johnny work the squad for A shift, with Captain Stanley and the rest of the guys. And we know that Roy and Johnny didn't switch shifts with B or C, since the rest of A shift are there with them, working the engine that day.

[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.
