Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: When John and Roy treat the 12 year old boy in anaphylactic shock, Early states, "Start IV D5W, 1 milligram epinephrin IV push," and John confirms the order. Then after giving Rampart a new set of vitals which are poor, Early orders, "Add 50 milligrams Benadryl IV push." But when John confirms that order he only says, "1 milligram epinephrine IV push," (which is the earlier order) and Early actually okays John's incorrect repeat of the order, even though John did not confirm the order of "50 milligrams Benadryl."

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is on scene at the vehicle accident in the canyon, after Marco uses a crowbar to free the driver of the station wagon and he pulls the driver out, a crew member standing behind the FX 6-ft wind machine fan (to blow smoke) are visible in the background beside the other overturned car. As an aside, in the previous and following shots that crew member and wind machine fan are in the same spot where Chet and Johnny supposedly are.

Continuity mistake: Roy and Joanne are going to be on a TV quiz show. When the guys are eating soup and sandwiches, Captain Stanley asks Roy, "You nervous about being on the tube tonight?" However, Roy didn't do the quiz show that night, because later we see they're on their next shift, and Roy is getting into his uniform when Johnny says "Tonight's the big night," and Roy tells him that Dwyer will do the rest of his shift when he leaves early.

Continuity mistake: When Chet and John are by the sink talking about Chet's appearance on the news, in the reflection we can see the three lockers behind Chet, and in the next shot the door of the fourth locker is wide open, blocking the third locker, and we can see that it's open because of the poster that's taped to the inside of the fourth locker's door.
