Continuity mistake: When the paramedics and the rest of the firemen gather round the failed pacemaker patient, their positions change and in DeSoto's close-ups the Captain isn't seen (for the camera angle's sake), although in other shots he's right beside Gage. As an aside, note when Captain Stanley first first gets off the engine and trips in the background.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When DeSoto joins Gage at the kitchen table they discuss Gage's bright idea of rodeos. In all the shots facing DeSoto his hands are clasped together with the coffee cup on the table, but in all the shots facing his partner, he's holding the cup of coffee. The magazine ends up under DeSoto's arms between shots as well.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched from the stationhouse, the exterior shots show buildings, traffic, trees, etc., they pass along the way. In some close-up shots of Gage and DeSoto while en route, too much of the vehicle's left and/or right sides are visible, which actually shows nothing but a blank screen behind them.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: On site at the chemical leak, when Captain Stanley talks into his handie-talkie and says "Engine 36, we're not doing any good with this, let's try light water," in the next shot, while the camera pans to the right, we can see a cameraman (filming Deluge 105's closeups that we see during this scene) holding his handheld, standing in front of an engine and facing Deluge 105, just before the camera focuses on the guys with the hoses.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Roy brings the man with a laryngeal obstruction into the ER and is taken quickly to treatment 1, his head is tilted back and Early places a laryngoscope into the patient's mouth and says that he sees the obstruction. The problem is that we can see that the laryngoscope is actually at the side of the patient's face. Then, when Early uses the forceps to remove the obstruction, once again we can see that it does not go into the patient's mouth.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When 127's snorkel is raised to rescue the man who was electrocuted atop a utility pole, as he's being loaded, in the first closeup within the snorkel, we can notice two things. We can see someone wearing denim at the left of the screen between 127's guy and Johnny, and we also see the ground past Johnny's head. Then as the snorkel is still being lowered, in the shot from the same POV, once again at the left we see that crew member wearing denim, who is outside the snorkel basket, and also see the ground, but the ground has not changed. This reveals that these two closeups were shot at ground level.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: At the site of the hang gliding accident, just after the glider falls, in the long shot when Johnny and Chet pull the unconscious victim higher on the cliff, the victim is supposed to be unconscious, yet we see him use his right leg to push himself higher up to help John and Chet pull him up.Super Grover
Deliberate mistake: After Johnny's and Captain Stone's efforts, when the construction site's cardiac arrest is wheeled into Rampart, the problem is twofold; First, we hear Roy's voice saying, "Full arrest, number four," even though Roy is not actually on this run (that line is from S4xE21 "Back-Up", when they wheel the cardiac arrest into treatment 1, after defibbing him atop Engine 51) And second, the attendant pulling the stretcher changes, and the EKG monitor lying on the patient is the old blue Datascope 850 from earlier seasons (this shot is from S4xE7 "Daisy's Pick", the hypothermic victim - note his wrapped foot!), whereas at the construction site and when he's wheeled into the treatment room, the EKG monitor is the newer white Datascope M/D2.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: At the gas station with the broken pump nozzle, when Roy and Johnny are tending to the woman with the cut on her head, the outlines of Roy's mic transmitter and wire are visible on the left side of his shirt, above his belt. Additionally, note that the office's left pane of glass has been removed to prevent the reflection of the camera facing it.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Charlie is finishing up on the squad's engine, Captain Stanley hands Johnny the address in the canyon that has overgrown weeds, and when Johnny packs up the toolbox, Charlie holds out the roll of electrical tape and the combination wrench, with its open-end up. However, in the next shot the only thing Charlie holds out is the wrench, but with its box-end up.Super Grover
