Details - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 leaves Rampart, in the first interior shot facing Roy as John says, "Yeah, I'll tell ya, when it hits ya... Boy when I met Valerie it hit me," through the back window we can see movement at the back of the squad. But in the shot facing Roy when John says, "So that's that... That's exactly how it is," through that back window we can actually see a crew member's face (sideways), who has a mustache, right behind John's head, as he's riding on the back of the moving squad. It's so funny, have a look.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Chet, Roy, and Johnny are with the mother and child at the scene of the vehicle accident, the reflections of location set array lights, four side-by-side reflector screens with some crew members holding them and the camera/cameraman are all visible in the window and surface of the funeral home hearse, as it arrives and then pulls to the side of the road.

Inventions - S3-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy and Johnny rescue the worker in the midst of the chemical leak, when Captain Stanley asks the Chief over the HT to send the ambulance, two crew members are seen behind him. When the victim is pulled across the lifeline, as he reaches the engine a crew member, with black hair wearing a white shirt, is seen standing behind the engine. Then, when Johnny hauls himself across the lifeline, just as he reaches the engine we see a crew member, with black hair wearing a white shirt (likely same one as earlier), who arches up then ducks back down behind the engine.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Captain Stanley are rescuing the people trapped inside Olive View Hospital, they are wearing distinctively marked SCBA tanks on their backs, and when all three firemen exit the doorway, Cap is wearing an entirely different tank, and the tanks that Johnny and Roy are wearing have been switched. Then when Johnny jumps off Engine 82, his tank differs again, and when he walks over to the Battalion Chief it's changed yet again.

Foreign Trade - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is writing the 'for sale' sign about his Land Rover, in the wide shot the two phone numbers begin with "853" and "352", but in the closeup a piece of paper has been glued over the phone numbers, and the new numbers now begin with "321" and "749."

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: When Johnny and Roy are crawling on the balcony, during the fire at the apartment complex, when they pass under a window we can see the FX tubes from which the flames shoot out.

Propinquity - S3-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the abandoned refinery, just after Roy attempts to pull out the man pinned under a tank, but is unsuccessful the first time, when it cuts to Captain Stanley and Chet, who are on the third level hosing the fire through the doorway, at the left of the screen a crew member is visible, watching them.

Right at Home - S5-E17

Visible crew/equipment: During the fire late at night, after Johnny and Roy run to the burning house, when Captain Stanley tells Chet to get the exposure and later warns to watch for spot fires, the moving shadow of the cameraman/camera is visible on the ground, right beside Captain Stanley's shadow.

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.

School Days - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: While 51's on scene at the traffic accident involving a car that broadsided an ambulance, when Chet opens the back door of the overturned ambulance the license plate reads "99923U" but the "U" is lopsided and pushed to the edge of the plate, which makes it obvious that it's a magnetized letter. It's positioned properly in following shots.

The Professor - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are driving in the squad, while discussing Roy's last phone call from Susan, Johnny's lack of tact, etc., and particularly as they're being dispatched to the "possible maternity case," in every shot facing Johnny pay attention to the window behind the guys, because we can see a crew member's right hand, wearing a ring, who's holding a rope while he's riding on the back of the squad.

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.

Transition - S4-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When the three victims of the accident are all in treatment 2 with Morton, in the wide shot just as Brackett, Early, Roy, John, and Gil walk in, at the top of the screen we can see the boom mic dipping down into view.

Kidding - S4-E17

Visible crew/equipment: Just as 51's guys are removing the novelist from the car that's filled with carbon monoxide fumes, a crew member's reflection, as well as the screen from production equipment, can be seen on the car's driver side window.

Grateful - S5-E21

Audio problem: When Vince and Mike pull the tabletop out from under the car, while Roy is under there with Mrs. Merkle, we hear the audio of Roy loudly saying, "I'm telling you right now, we're gonna have to brace this thing well, this thing will...," but what's oddly funny is that the dialogue is dubbed right over Roy saying, "Wait, wait, let me check her over...," which is a neat trick that he can say both lines at the same time.

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.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the ER after the cave-in rescue, while they're talking to Dixie and Brackett, we can see how long Johnny's hair is. After they get back to the station, when the guys decide to name the dog Henry, there's a closeup of Johnny and now his hair is much shorter and even layered at the sides. Additionally, the dirty areas on his shirt change.
