Emergency!

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

Other mistake: After Johnny is hit by the car Roy kneels down beside him and shouts "Trauma box!" but the subtitles read, "Code box!"

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start, on the way to the structure fire one of 10's rigs has license plate number E180174, but at the fire we see 127's engine has the same license plate number E180174.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Chet's practical joke on Karen, she's quite ticked off, and Roy and Johnny are a bit uncomfortable, and then when Station 51 is dispatched to the unknown type rescue they all head to the apparatus bay. In the next shot when Karen, Roy, and Johnny get into the squad just watch all the actors' faces. First Johnny cracks up, then Roy and Karen, who even put their heads down to hide their laughter, particularly Roy who ducks his head behind the steering wheel. Fun to watch.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Other mistake: After Johnny takes Captain Stanley's BP, when Chet tells the guys, "Animal fat is the root of all evil," and also after John jokes, "How to survive on no meals a day," check out Roy's feet because he's wearing shoes (looks like black sneakers) that are below the ankle, with no socks. Then in a few moments they're all dispatched to the 'possible heart attack' and when they're at the scene, while Roy is sitting with the patient, he's wearing socks and his uniform shoes (their tops are above the ankle) as usual.

Show generally

Other mistake: In the interior shots of Station 51 (the studio set), when facing the rear apparatus bay door, the right wall has a door to Captain Stanley's office, a very large map, the radio receiver base station where they respond to dispatch, the kitchen doorway, and a double-door closet, that's it. However, when Station 51 is shown in the exterior shots (the real Station 127 aka 51), as either the engine or squad exits when the apparatus bay door is up, we see that the right wall has many more doors on that wall. Additionally, the opposite wall on the set has only two doors - one to locker room/bathroom, and one to the dorm, however at the real 127's, that wall has three doors - two of them are to the dorm.

Limelight - S6-E24

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are at the house with the three wild, obnoxious boys who terrorized their sitter, Johnny takes her blood pressure with the cuff, while Roy takes her respiration and pulse as he looks at his wrist for the second-hand countdown, but the problem is that Roy isn't even wearing his watch, and the actor has a bizarre look on his face when he looks at his naked wrist. He then tells Johnny that her pulse is 140 and respiration is 35. When the ambulance attendants arrive, Roy is wearing his watch. If he had his watch he should have used it for the pulse and respiration.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Other mistake: When Brackett tells Johnny and Roy to contact the animal shelter via the disaster net, Roy asks the Animal Control guys for their disaster call, and it's given as 3-9-9-7-7-1-1, but in the closeup Roy presses channel 8 then punches in 4-2-1-6-5-3-7 on the scanner. Additionally, the Regency Monitoradio / Executive Scanner Receiver has 8 channels, so it would have been impossible to press 9, as was stated by Dave.

School Days - S2-E14

Other mistake: After the guys rescue Dr. Temple from under the library bookcase, when the attendants take him to the ambulance Johnny alone leaves with him, and while Billy and Roy are still in the library talking we hear the ambulance leaving with its siren blaring, but when the ambulance arrives at Rampart the attendant opens the back door and somehow Billy has actually joined Johnny and Dr. Temple in the ambulance.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: While Roy is showing Brice the squad, after Brice annoyingly locks Squad 51's side bay door, he asks, "How about the OB box?" but the subtitles read, "How about the OV box?" Then a minute later Brice says, "Let's look at the OB box," and again the subtitles read "OV box."

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: When the ambulance arrives and they're loading Johnny onto the ambulance, Captain Stanley says, "Okay, Chet, take the squad..." but the subtitles get both characters wrong, it reads that a "Paramedic" says, "Okay, Chip, take the squad..." There is no Chip.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the very start, when the camera moves through Station 10 while the guys are asleep upstairs, we see one of the engines has license plate E111196, but en route there's a closeup of Rescue 10 and its license plate is also E111196.

Details - S4-E12

Other mistake: During the structure fire, when Engine 98 rolls up we can see the large red vinyl adhered to the top of the engine's cab. Then when Truck 106 rolls up we see its company number 106 on the door, but in the overhead shot we can see the number 8 on the roof of the cab, not 106. This presumably means that the door has one of the prop dept's magnetic decals imprinted with 106, and the roof still shows the Truck company's real number.

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."

Promotion - S3-E7

Other mistake: When John and Roy get back to the station, they head to the kitchen and John takes the hot pot of stew out of the oven with potholders, and when he quickly tries to lift the lid without the potholder, his pain makes it clear that it's burning hot, so he uses the mitt to lift the lid. There's a long metal serving spoon that was left in the stew, and John just lifts it up and starts serving the stew with no problem, even though that spoon should have been too hot to even touch.

Other mistake: After finding out about Valerie's three kids, when Johnny and Roy are sitting in the station's locker room at the start of their next shift, there are a few moments during this conversation where Kevin Tighe softly mouths some of Randolph Mantooth's lines as Johnny is speaking, particularly when Johnny says "Beautiful chic."

905-Wild - S4-E22

Other mistake: After the officer hands Les the tranquilizer gun, Les asks which way the tiger went and the officer responds, "Down that aisle," and we see both men, who are standing right beside the self-serve ice cream freezer, moving slowly towards the aisle in front of that ice cream freezer. The problem is that in the next shot, we see the large tiger coming from that exact area in front of the ice cream freezer, as he walks toward the camera on the other end of the aisle. This means that the Bengal tiger, Les, and the officer would have all been standing in the very same spot, at the same time.

Honest - S2-E17

Other mistake: At the start of this episode the tones drop and Station 51 is dispatched to a fire and explosion. In this closeup, all the guys come running from the kitchen into the apparatus bay and head for the vehicles, but wait, none of them are actually 51's guys.

Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny begin their ascent, the injured rock climbers are shown in a closeup, which then zooms out so we can see the entire area to the left, and the only rope up there is the boys' red rope. When Johnny reaches the boys, he's pulling himself up with the help of a blue rope, which has already been anchored in place near the injured boys. So who put it up there and anchored it? Not the injured boys. Not Johnny. Not Roy, who is still down below.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Other mistake: After Johnny and Roy are dispatched to the actor with the possible heart attack, Brackett asks them to send an EKG strip, and when Brackett lifts the chart paper to read it, he is not looking at the side that would have the line tracing recorded by the stylus, he is actually looking at the back of the paper as it's rolling out of the machine. Also note that the chart paper is quite blank on both sides. Additionally, just prior to this, when Brackett presses the record tab on the recorder, it just pops back up and does not engage.

[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.

Trivia

In addition to Randolph Mantooth's brother Donald appearing in this episode, while Roy and John are in Mrs. Johnson's apartment, when Roy's telling John some of the plants' names, John picks up a plant from the table and asks Roy what its name is. And when Roy answers, "Sadie", John smiles at the plant and says, "Hey, Sadie, how you doing?" Sadie is Mantooth's mother's name.
