Emergency!

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: When the critical boy who ingested the ant poison is being wheeled into the ER's treatment 3, we can see Johnny laughing, and obviously since absolutely nothing about the situation is funny, we know it's Randolph Mantooth just cutting up during the take.

Continuity mistake: When Old Bill is wheeled into treatment 3, there's a pillow under his head and the gurney he's lying on has grey trim, horizontal bars under the bed and flat steel plates over the wheels, but when it cuts to inside treatment 3 as he's brought in, the pillow has vanished and the entire style of the gurney he's lying on is completely different.

Other mistake: When the squad and engine roll up on the scene of the bulldozer accident in the junkyard, just as the guy runs up to inform them about the victims, have a look at Squad 51's license plate number because it is not the normal prop plate number E999007.

Revealing mistake: While John's in the ambulance with the boy who ingested the poison, after John inserts the esophageal airway and uses the ambu-bag, just as John says, "Real good," if we look out the window behind the attendant, we can see Universal's GlamourTrams (a set of three trams) driving by in the distance. The footage inside the ambulance was shot while the ambulance drove around Universal's lots.

Continuity mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to 'man down' and realize it's Old Bill when they look through the window, when Roy and Johnny climb through the window their gear is handed in to them, and John takes the drug box with his left hand and Biophone with his right, but in the next interior shot John's taking them with the opposite hands.

Continuity mistake: Before Old Bill wakes up, Brackett, Morton, and Early are talking in the hallway outside Bill's room, and the hallway is a big, wide open space. After Bill wakes up, Dixie goes out to the hallway to get Brackett, and when they walk into Bill's room we can see the hallway behind them, and it's a fraction of the size it was before, only about 4-5 feet wide now.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]

[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?
