Other mistake: After Dr. Early fixes the squad's engine problem, while Roy and Johnny are driving away, Roy's watch reads 10:30, but when the dispatcher sends them to the leg injury he says that the time out is 11:52. Then at the scene of the football player's leg injury, Roy's watch reads 8:15 and Johnny's watch reads 9:30.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are on the "child locked in a bathroom" run, Johnny makes a hasty retreat leaving Roy to deal with the "child." The bar of soap Roy uses is on a curved pedestal soap dish, and that dish is either curved towards the wall, or turned the opposite way, depending on the camera angle.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When John and Roy get back to the station, Captain Stanley asks them to step into the office, and as Cap walks through the doorway the camera's shadow is visible on the wall at the left. Also note the coiled electrical wire lying on the floor in front of the squad, and the shadow of something that is directly in front of the squad, even though the squad just rolled in.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the basket with the man who was electrocuted by a power line, they are atop three more power lines. Chet and Mike cut the two outer lines and only the center line remains, but in the closeup of the basket there are still three power lines under the basket.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Dr. Early fixes the squad's engine problem, while Roy is driving we see a two-way radio mounted at the top of the dashboard, just past the steering wheel. When the dispatcher calls on Squad 51 to respond, there's a closeup of the Motorola two-way radio/Interceptor units which are mounted under the dash (near gas pedal), and Johnny lifts this mic, but then we see that he's speaking on the mic from the top of the dash. Additionally, in those two closeups of the two-way radio, we can see the gas pedal, but Roy's foot is nowhere to be seen, even though the squad has been moving all along.Super Grover
Captain Stanley: How are you and Brice getting along?
Roy: Fine. Fine. We're getting along just fine.
Captain Stanley: Thought for a while there might be a little personality problem.
Roy: No, I can work with just about anybody. I can get along with just about anybody.
Captain Stanley: Glad to hear that.
Roy: Just might have to bust him in the mouth to do it.
Trivia: It's in this episode that the Heimlich Maneuver is used for the first time by the paramedics. At the USC game, when a guy is choking on a hot dog, John and Roy are called, and John uses the Heimlich. Up until season 6 we've seen the guys use other methods, such as the ChokeSaver which look like huge white tweezers, to remove obstructions in an airway, as seen in 4x9, "Foreign Trade."Super Grover
