What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing...? - S7-E7

Floor Brigade - S3-E19

Other mistake: After getting the hermit out of the cave, Roy asks Marco to take the EKG leads "over there", but then hands them to Chet (played by Tim Donnelly) saying "here Tim", and the subtitles read that Roy says "Chet."

Snakebite - S3-E6

Other mistake: After Hector agrees to use Tractor 2 to cut a trail down to the teenagers in the crashed car, Captain Stanley tells Roy and John to get their gear, then says, "Marco, Chet, give them a hand," but subtitles read, "Mark it off, Chet..." Later when they're carrying the teens up, we hear the dispatcher say, "Squad 36, 10-7 to Rampart," but subtitles read "Squad 36, transport to Rampart," and when the dispatcher says, "Repair 2, Engine 163 is requesting tow truck," but subtitles read "Return 2..."

Inheritance Tax - S3-E9

Other mistake: During the paint factory fire incident, when the Battalion Chief (Battalion 14) contacts LA dispatch over the HT he says, "LA, Battalion 14, this fire is contained," but the bizarre subtitles read "Calling Battalion 14..."

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When the guy (Michael Conrad) with the gunshot wound is being wheeled out of the treatment room there is nothing on his face, but in the shot from the hallway as they exit the room suddenly he has a tube inserted into his nostril with tape holding it in place.

Zero - S3-E10

Other mistake: At the fire, while they're searching for the missing boy, Marco feels the partition for heat and shouts to Captain Stanley, "Hey, Cap! Cap!" but the subtitles read, "Hey, Chet! Chet!" Then after the boy's rescue, we hear the Battalion Chief say, "LA, this fire's contained. All copy. Out 1 hour," but subtitles read "Talk 1 hour."

Zero - S3-E10

Other mistake: At the start of this episode Squad 51 heads out to the construction site with the screaming woman, and Roy and John are in their full turnout gear, which means they've just spent the night at the station and it's early morning at the end of their 24-hr shift, yet back at the station Roy and John are getting into their uniform at the start of their shift, which is 8:00AM. Joanne Worley's screaming segment was filmed for an earlier episode, but was inserted into this episode.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: At the nurses' station, after Roy tells Brice that Brightweiser will be okay the two of them walk to receiving carrying their gear, with Roy holding the Biophone and defibrillator, but as they head through the doors both the Biophone and defibrillator have each turned around in Roy's hands, and now face the opposite way.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: After Roy shows Brice the drug box, Roy places it back into the squad's side bay in the closeup, but in the wide shot Roy's still holding the drug box while Brice acts like his annoying self.

Insanity Epidemic - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: When Roy, John, and Marco walk into the rec room while Chet is trying to wax the floor, Marco is wearing a ring on his left hand in the wide shots, but in the closeups with Captain Stanley the ring is gone.

Equipment - S5-E4

Other mistake: When the cardiac arrest is first brought into the ER we hear "Let's get him intubated," but the weird subtitles read, "Let's get him elevated."

Equipment - S5-E4

Other mistake: At the construction site, after Johnny administers the epinephrine to the cardiac arrest, 39's paramedic resumes CPR, and when they're lifting the patient onto the stretcher Johnny says, "Stop CPR," but the subtitles read, "Start CPR," which makes no sense since they've been doing CPR all along.

Botulism - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: During the rescue at the construction accident, when the man with the back injury is hanging from his line and is lowered after Roy untangles the block, we can see that in addition to the rope wrapped around the man there's wire and support that go under the man's jumpsuit. The wire/support are gone once he's lying on the balcony and they remove the rope.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start we see that Station 10 has one rig with an aerial ladder and two engines. While Station 10 is en route to the fire, there's a closeup of Truck 10 (ladder) and its license plate reads E111074, yet when they're on scene Truck 10's license plate reads E111083.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After the cropduster crashes, when Roy and Johnny pull the pilot out of the overturned aircraft and begin working on him, Johnny's medical holster with penlight, forceps and scissor is clipped at his right hip and the other holster's at his left hip, but when Johnny shouts to Chet about giving the victim oxygen, Johnny's holsters have switched sides.

Details - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny jumps from the third floor ledge onto the lifenet, in the shot of his actual jump we can see a cameraman wearing jeans at the bottom left corner of the screen, who's holding a handheld camera shooting footage while lying on the street. The angle of that footage can be seen just as Captain Stanley shouts, "Gage, you first," and also when they walk the lifenet over to their left, before Cap shouts, "Okay, Roy!"

Fools - S3-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the "possible heart attack," just as the squad rolls up on scene, we can see its real license plate with number 70324H, instead of the prop plate number E999007.

Fools - S3-E16

Other mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to "possible heart attack" the address is "91st and Formosa" (the 'Black Tower' can be see behind the Chevron sign when the squad rolls up), and later when they're dispatched to "person caught in mailbox" the address is "Beverly Blvd and Main." What's funny is that the two incident scenes are filmed at the same corner of the intersection, with Universal's 'Black Tower' nearby. Have a look.

Inheritance Tax - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Engine 51 rolls up on scene at the paint factory structure fire, Captain Stanley heads towards the street corner, and we can see the actor's white T-mark on the ground before he gets on the HT.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Captain Stanley: How are you and Brice getting along?
Roy: Fine. Fine. We're getting along just fine.
Captain Stanley: Thought for a while there might be a little personality problem.
Roy: No, I can work with just about anybody. I can get along with just about anybody.
Captain Stanley: Glad to hear that.
Roy: Just might have to bust him in the mouth to do it.

The Game - S6-E1

Trivia: It's in this episode that the Heimlich Maneuver is used for the first time by the paramedics. At the USC game, when a guy is choking on a hot dog, John and Roy are called, and John uses the Heimlich. Up until season 6 we've seen the guys use other methods, such as the ChokeSaver which look like huge white tweezers, to remove obstructions in an airway, as seen in 4x9, "Foreign Trade."
