Continuity mistake: At the ferris wheel, when the boy starts to climb down to help the man in the lower seat, in the closeup he steps on the two yellow, fluorescent tube light bulbs causing the bulbs to plummet and shatter on the ground below. The problem is that those two fluorescent bulbs did not even exist in the prior wide shots, that lamp socket space was empty.

Greatest Rescues of Emergency - S7-E5

Other mistake: After getting their promotions, Roy and Johnny start recalling their history together and when Johnny remembers joining the paramedic program he says he was at 8's, but Johnny was at 10's and it even shows the clip from the show's pilot where Johnny's standing behind Engine 10 talking with his Battalion Chief. The filming of the show's Station 10 was done at the real Station 8. As an aside, the real Station 8 was also seen in the 1950's TV show Rescue 8.

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."
