Visible crew/equipment: After inspecting Davey's Dogs, when John and Roy head to the squad discussing how only a total idiot would buy the stand, the reflection of the location's array lighting is visible on the squad's surface, and the reflection of the camera dolly can be seen on the chrome spotlight.Super Grover
Other mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, the anesthesiologist brings the cart with a ventilating unit close to patient, then there are two closeups of Bird's Mark 4 unit and the bellows housing showing inflation and deflation, and on the bellows unit it reads "Animal Anesthesia Ventilator" made by Bird. This is also the same closeup we see of the ventilator unit in 4x18, "Prestidigitation," during the surgery on Brackett's father.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: During the fire at the chemical plant, a couple of shots after we see Captain Stanley walking between Roy and Chet as they're manning two hoses on the roof, we see a shot of Engine 15 as it heads toward the camera and then drives past it, and the reflection of array lighting is visible on the engine's surface.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the victim who has a projectile in his heart from a lawn mower, Brackett asks for an EKG strip and there's a closeup of the Datascope monitor, even though the Datascope is not actually in the ER's base station room (it's also still in the squad at this point). Also interesting to note, when Brackett walks out of the base station and tells Early about the heart wound, Early turns the medical chart he's holding at an angle, looks down at it and it appears that he's reading his line from the chart. Then when the ambulance arrives at the scene, the stethoscope is around Johnny's neck, then it's back around Roy's neck as Johnny's lifting the patient, then it's gone from Roy's neck, and then Johnny puts it back around Roy's neck.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Roy and Johnny get back to the station the other guys tell them to check the dog to see if he's sick, and when Roy checks Henry's pupils and Johnny checks his pulse, all the guys are standing behind Johnny and Roy., and we can see the shadows of crew movement in the kitchen at the top right corner of the screen.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After John heads down to the victims of the cave-in, when they send down the drug box with the HT, the trauma case is still beside Roy, but when Johnny asks for the blankets the trauma case is gone. Then Johnny gives Roy the victims vitals, and when Johnny goes to the vent pipe to get the blankets they just sent down, suddenly the trauma case is down below with him, and it's open, but Johnny never retrieved the case before getting the blankets. Additionally, Roy tells Rampart that the victim has a "large discoloration on the chest", even though John never said anything about it to Roy, when he gave the victim's vitals over the HT.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After leaving the football player who kicked in his TV screen, as Roy and John put the gear back in the squad, we see the old blue set of the Datascope 850 monitor and defibrillator, and not their current Datascope M/D2 white case. The last time the blue two-piece unit is even seen in the squad is in 4x13, "Parade", and the first time the white unit is used is in 4x15, "Transition", and it's then used in all following episodes. This scene was a prior taping, that was inserted into this end of the season episode.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are with the back injury victim, his dog, Thadeus, runs off with the BP cuff, and when Roy chases him and falls into the pool, Roy's now wearing the water-type shoes, note the flat sole. Then when he and Johnny leave, the uniform shoes are back.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Roy and Joanne are going to be on a TV quiz show. When the guys are eating soup and sandwiches, Captain Stanley asks Roy, "You nervous about being on the tube tonight?" However, Roy didn't do the quiz show that night, because later we see they're on their next shift, and Roy is getting into his uniform when Johnny says "Tonight's the big night," and Roy tells him that Dwyer will do the rest of his shift when he leaves early.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny and Chet begin their arm wrestling, when dispatch drops the tones, there's movement at the front seats of Engine 51 where the camera is located, while Captain Stanley is at the radio base station and Mike is putting on his turnout.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Charlie's at the station, complaining that every time one of the squads breaks down it's only crying out for mercy against the drivers, and that firemen are the worst thing to happen to the squads, we can see the reflection of the boom mic on the windshield of Squad 51.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to a man trapped at World Picture Corp, just as they reach the entrance to World Picture Corp, the Sheraton-Universal is seen on the corner, and the street sign for touring Universal Studios is visible as well. (00:19:45)Super Grover
