Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: While the squad and engine are en route to "possible fire", one of the camera angles is from the POV behind Roy and John, where the back of squad is located. That’s fine, but the problem is that there's bright sunlight on their backs as they’re driving, when it should not be there. Artistic license is acceptable, but with so much sunlight where it should not be it reveals that Squad 51 is not in its normal state.

Visible crew/equipment: After the ambulance arrives at the lion pit, just as the attendants reach the fence where John and Roy are standing, and the stokes is loaded onto the stretcher, we can see the two white tape marks on the ground, where the zoo employee is standing.

Other mistake: When Johnny brings the officer who was shot into the ER, as soon as he's loaded onto the gurney Carol takes his BP then tells Brackett his BP, but she also tells him that his pulse is 120, even though she never took his pulse. Additionally, when Morton places the blood vials on the tray and tells the nurse, "I want this sent to the lab STAT, type and cross match, and CBC and differentials STAT," due to the urgency of the situation, but the nurse doesn't leave, she just stands for the rest of the scene.

Audio problem: After the sniper throws down the rifle, we see Captain Stanley start talking to Chet and Marco, though at first we don't hear anything, we then hear, "Put on your air masks, " but that is not Captain Stanley's voice we hear. Oddly enough, to me it sounds like John's voice. Have a listen.

Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: After the sniper surrenders, Captain Stanley instructs Engines 12 and 51 to come to the rear of the building, and a few shots later the camera moves alongside Engine 12 as it's turning the corner. In this specific shot, up ahead we are able to see set lighting (including moleeno-style array lights), equipment, crew and actors (in the blue paramedic uniforms), some sitting on chairs in front of the parking attendant's booth (which was shot at by the sniper during the scene).

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are treating the officer, while hiding between the bakery truck and car, the sniper fires at them which leaves multiple bullet holes on the side of the truck. However, when Vince talks to the Sergeant on the handie-talkie and then fires the tear gas, all the bullet holes on the truck are gone, but they soon reappear.

Continuity mistake: At the lion pit, when John loads the photographer onto the stokes he places the yellow blanket package under her head, and as Captain Stanley, Marco, and Roy lift the stokes out of the pit, we can see that the package is under her head the opposite way.

Continuity mistake: When Dixie gives John a tetanus shot because he fell from a skateboard onto cactus, we know they're all in treatment 1, because when Johnny and Roy are at the open door we can see the door and wall (with fire extinguisher) on the opposite side of the hall, but in the next shot from the hallway he and Roy are leaving treatment 4, which is opposite treatment 3.

Continuity mistake: After loading the officer with the gunshot wound onto the ambulance, en route to Rampart when Johnny is checking the wound, Johnny's watch reads 11:10, but when he's adjusting the mask and the resuscitator regulator, his watch reads 11:55.

Other mistake: When John, Roy, and Vince grab the officer who was shot by the sniper and make a run for it, as they duck behind the car, right behind them we can see a city bus just driving on by the lot, directly in the sniper's line of fire, even though that area's supposedly closed off with heavy police presence.

Continuity mistake: After the sniper throws the rifle out the window, Captain Stanley gives the orders over the HT to Engine 12, Truck 23 and Engine 23, and the next few shots of the rigs are from previous episodes including 3x7, "Promotion", when Roy and John rescue the security guard at the structure fire.

Revealing mistake: When Johnny, Roy, Vince, and the wounded officer are hiding between the bakery truck and car, before the multiple bullet holes actually appear on the side of the truck, those areas where the holes will show up have off-color markings, prepared for the stunt.
