Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When John and Roy are with the possible MI, while Roy's setting up the IV bag John's on the Biophone with Rampart, and after Brackett orders the IV TKO with MS, we see that Roy's pant leg has nothing on it, but then it cuts to the closeup and suddenly there are strips of torn tape (for IV as usual) on Roy's pant leg.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is dispatched to the 'structure fire', in the shot facing the squad as it starts to roll out, we can see the black tape covering the lightbar's chrome surface atop the squad, which also vanishes at the incident.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: After Dr. Early is called a miracle worker and then again tries unsuccessfully to get the apple from the machine, it cuts to Squad 51 pulling backwards into the apparatus bay, and the engine we see parked in the bay is the Crown from the first two seasons, not their current Ward LaFrance.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Audio problem: While Roy and John are with the asthmatic boy, Roy's on the Biophone with Rampart, and we hear Early say, "Administer 0.3 milligrams epinephrin IM," but his mouth is not in sync with the last part, and it looks like he actually said,.". Epinephrin IV."

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Billy's mother waits in the hallway while Early examines Billy, the window behind her is on the same side as the ER's receiving entrance. Note that outside the window there's a blue metal shade at the top, which does not exist in any exterior shots of that side of the ER.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Captain Robertson voices his disapproval about the paramedics, while the guys are in the kitchen eating, there are plates, cups, saucers, and utensils on the table. Then Station 51 is called to respond to a child trapped at the storm drain, and when the guys run out of the kitchen we see behind them that the table is now bare.

Quotes

[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?
