Continuity mistake: When Peter staggers into the ER because of insulin shock, Dixie walks down the hallway passing treatment rooms 2 and 4, with treatment 2 being beside the nurses' station, and it's the same set-up later when Peter's girlfriend speaks to Dixie in the hallway. However, in prior and subsequent shots of the hallway, it's treatment 4 that's beside the nurses' station.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Squad 10 is dispatched to the the high-voltage electrocution, Tony opens the bay door, but the closeup we see is actually the same closeup of the hand cupping the switchplate that was shown earlier, when dispatched to the nighttime factory fire.Super Grover
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.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Brackett, Dixie and Early are working on the unconscious little boy, once Brackett says to go with the pacemaker, multiple black T-marks are visible all over the floor - three under the gurney and one near the cart. Another actor's white tape mark is visible under the gurney (partially blocked by the green oxygen tank), where both Early and Dixie stand at different times.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Johnny and the attendants exit the ambulance with Dora, the pregnant woman, the ambulance is empty and the drug box is on the seat with the Biophone on the floor beside the seat, but in the next shot as the gurney is wheeled inside, the drug box is now on the floor between the Biophone and seat.Super Grover
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.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when Johnny and Roy walk into Captain Stanley's office, Johnny's pack of cigarettes is in his right shirt pocket. As he and Roy are talking in the apparatus bay, the cigarettes are still in his right shirt pocket. When Johnny enters the kitchen after Roy, the cigarette pack has magically moved to his left shirt pocket.nancestef
Captain Stanley: How are you and Brice getting along?
Roy: Fine. Fine. We're getting along just fine.
Captain Stanley: Thought for a while there might be a little personality problem.
Roy: No, I can work with just about anybody. I can get along with just about anybody.
Captain Stanley: Glad to hear that.
Roy: Just might have to bust him in the mouth to do it.
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."Super Grover
