The Firehouse Four - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: While Johnny tries to reach the man who fell over the cliff, when the bicycle falls to the bottom of the canyon both tires break free from the frame, but when the officer retrieves the bicycle, only one of the tires is off, the other is undamaged and on the frame.

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is dispatched to a man over the cliff, while en route there's a shot from the top of Engine 51, with the dome light in front of the camera, and the reflection of the covered camera, which is mounted on the engine's roof, is visible in the dome light's chrome surface.

Continuity mistake: While Johnny is trying to reach the man who fell over the cliff, the bicycle falls all the way to the bottom of the canyon, and then there's a shot of the man and we can see that the bicycle is still above him at the side of the cliff, just before Chet says over the HT, "Lower him, Cap, the victim's broken loose."

The Firehouse Four - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: After Squad 51 gets back to the station, Roy and Johnny remain in the squad discussing Roy being the coach, and when the dispatcher drops the tones, we see a closeup of five pair of legs rushing out of the kitchen, even though we should only be seeing four pair of legs, since Roy and Johnny are already in the squad.

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 gets back to the station, while Johnny's trying to convince Roy to coach their singing, the usually highly reflective chrome surface of the spotlights have been sprayed with a dulling spray, to temporarily dull the finish for this shot.

The Firehouse Four - S4-E11

Character mistake: When Dr. Brackett talks to the attempted suicide's boyfriend, he tells Brackett that the girl has already attempted suicide a total of three times, and the first time she was hospitalized, but a minute later when Dr. Morton reads the hospital records and tells Brackett that the girl attempted suicide the previous year and was hospitalized, Brackett then tells Morton that her boyfriend said that she tried it three additional times. It was just a minute earlier that the boyfriend said two additional times, not three.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Morton leaves the room of the patient who attempted suicide to get Jack, he takes the pill bottle from Dr. Early, carries the medical chart holder, and is wearing a stethoscope around his neck, but in the hallway when he gets Jack the pill bottle and chart holder are gone, and the stethoscope is in his pocket. Then, when they walk back into the room, Morton's holding the bottle and chart holder, and the stethoscope is back around his neck.
