Emergency!

Propinquity - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the opening rescue where Roy and Johnny rescue the woman from the burning car, Johnny is relaying the woman's vitals to Rampart. Over his right shoulder, you can see a sticker on the trunk of the car behind them. This is probably a dealer sticker. In one scene, it is blue and red, and in another, it is blacked out. It returns to blue and red, only to be blacked out again.

Propinquity - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: After the ambulance Roy is riding in is involved in a traffic accident, when Johnny arrives he jumps into the back with the injured attendant and patient, and we can see that the stretcher's footrest is light brown. But when the attendants exit, they carry the stretcher out of the back of the first ambulance then wheel it to the second ambulance, and the footrest is now red. It would seem that they merely transferred the patient from the first ambulance's stretcher to the second ambulance's stretcher while still in the ambulance, but they couldn't have done that because two full size stretchers cannot fit into the back of that first station-wagon style ambulance, especially with attendants back there, so they would have had to do the patient transfer on the ground outside. Hence the problem.

Continuity mistake: The cut that Roy receives over his eyebrow during the traffic accident changes characteristics, such as when he and John are at the poker game, it looks considerably better in following shots, then it looks much worse again.

Continuity mistake: Just before the ambulance Roy is riding in is involved in the collision, we see a crowd of people at the corner near the stop sign, but in the next shot they've all vanished, only to reappear just as the vehicles collide.

Continuity mistake: After they load the woman from the wrecked car into the ambulance, Roy and an ambulance attendant are riding in the back with her. In the shots of the moving ambulance, until it's involved in the traffic accident, we should be able to see Roy and the attendant through the windows, but they're simply not there.

Continuity mistake: When the victims are loaded onto the second ambulance with Roy, after the original ambulance was hit by the car, we can see the license plate, Z99977, as Johnny closes the back doors. Then while en route to Rampart, the ambulance's make/model changes with plate, Z99953, then the make/model changes yet again, but still has the same plate, Z99953.

[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.
