The Screenwriter - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Art, the screenwriter, goes on his first ride-along with Squad 51, just as Art rambles on about the fire truck on its mission of mercy going 80 miles an hour, two shadows of mic/camera equipment are visible on the left and right side of Squad 51's hood. What's amusing is that a moment prior to this, Art actually says that they could mount a camera right on the hood of the truck, when they make the film about paramedics.

Visible crew/equipment: When Engine 51 arrives at the toy factory fire and comes to a full stop, we see the hunched over cameraman holding a handheld camera, with another crew member standing right behind him, and just as Captain Stanley opens the door and emerges, we see the cameraman being helped up and both men turning and moving quickly to their left, as Captain Stanley jumps off the engine.

[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.
