Emergency!

Zero - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: At the structure fire, right after Captain Stanley and Roy throw the rope down to Johnny and the boy, and Cap tells Marco to use fog, in the next overhead shot as the guys use the axe on the partition fire, at the right side of the screen we can see a crew member wearing a short sleeve grey T-shirt, who's standing at the stairway landing right outside the door, as he's using the FX smoke/fog machine which is blowing smoke through the doorway.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the guy is stuck in the tree after his hang gliding accident, John ties the rope around the branch and begins to saw the branch while Roy uses that rope to slowly lower the branch. The problem is that just as the branch nears the ground, we can see the production crew's thin double lines securing the branch at the top right of the screen, and then those lines vanish when Roy joins John.

An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: While John and Roy begin rehearsing in front of Marco and Chet, when John lights the flame his watch reads 10:00, but just a few minutes later when John puts the sawdust into the strainer his watch reads 10:30. When Squad 51 is dispatched to "sick child," timeout is 12:13, and after John and Roy get back to the ER the second time after searching the garage for the poison it's 1:05 at the ER. Then when they're on the Tom Jensen Show, as Roy tries to light the flame John's watch reads 11:30, but when he and Roy are treating the electrical shock victim, his watch reads 4:00.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While en route to the accident, just as we hear the dispatcher inform Engine 51 that the fire is out, in the exterior shot of Squad 51 there's black tape covering much of the lightbar's chrome atop the cab, which vanishes when they roll up on the accident scene.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When Roy's in the ambulance with the man who was rescued from under the boat, he's on the Biophone with Rampart, and just after Roy says, "So we've occluded the arterial flow in the right arm," in the next shot from inside the ambulance, we can see that they pass a couple of parked GlamourTrams. The ambulance drives around Universal's lot while shooting the footage inside the moving ambulance, en route to Rampart.

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.

Daisy's Pick Blind Date - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: When John and Roy bring the hypothermic patient into treatment 3, Morton uses the laryngoscope, but the problem here is that when it's placed we can see that the laryngoscope is actually at the side of the patient's face.

The Screenwriter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: During the structure fire at Kiddytime Toy Factory, when the man is downed by an electrical shock, Johnny pulls out the defibrillator and Biophone from the squad, and in Johnny's closeups with the Datascope we can see that its center knob on the right is missing, but in the Datascope's closeups the knob is back.

Zero - S3-E10

Other mistake: When Tommy's on the ledge, and Roy and John are on the aerial ladder, just as Tommy jumps off the ledge and Roy catches him, we can see the young actor happy and grinning as he's being caught by Kevin Tighe, but within the very serious storyline of a 7 year old boy jumping from a ledge, looking "empty, tired and giving up", this doesn't fit. Obviously the young actor thought it was great fun to do a stunt like that.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', the woman who opens the door tells them she didn't call, and when Roy asks her if he and Johnny can check on her sick husband, Roy's second shirt button is open and his undershirt is visible, but in the next shot it's buttoned up again.

The Boat - S6-E19

Other mistake: In the bookie's apartment, on the table with all the telephones, there's a can of scouring cleanser which has the "a" and "x" covered, so all we see is the "ja" on the can, in order to hide its brand name, which is Ajax.
