Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Johnny brings the officer who was shot into the ER, as soon as he's loaded onto the gurney Carol takes his BP then tells Brackett his BP, but she also tells him that his pulse is 120, even though she never took his pulse. Additionally, when Morton places the blood vials on the tray and tells the nurse, "I want this sent to the lab STAT, type and cross match, and CBC and differentials STAT," due to the urgency of the situation, but the nurse doesn't leave, she just stands for the rest of the scene.

The Screenwriter - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When we hear Station 51 being dispatched to the structure fire at Kiddytime Toy Factory, just as Roy rushes to the squad's door to open it, we can see the reflection of the camera dolly through the squad's windshield as it moves.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: While the judge and young lawyer are doing CPR to help, Roy's tearing off strips of tape and placing them on his pants (for IV as usual), then after he asks Johnny, "Were you able to get in touch with Rampart?," in the next shot all those strips of tape have vanished from his pant leg, only to reappear when Roy defibs the patient.

Mascot - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when Squad 51 rolls up on the car accident scene, in the shot from inside the squad we can see the entire area around the wrecked car, and there's only a utility pole, short wood fencing, and trees. When Roy and John are treating Paula, and then removing her from the car, in the overhead shots as the camera faces the wrecked car and 51's rigs, there's a very large rectangular shadow being cast over the car, which is presumably from a reflector screen facing the front of the car.

Nurse's Wild - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: While Early, Dixie, and Brackett are talking in the hallway about going to lunch, Ellen comes out of the treatment room (opposite receiving) next door to treatment 2 and calls to Dr. Early, but when Early and Ellen walk back into that room, they are now in treatment 3, which is directly opposite from treatment 2.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: After Johnny and Roy find the motorcycle and its injured rider, Johnny wraps his arm/shoulder area, but the way it's wrapped - whether or not it's over the shoulder and/or at his waist, and the amount that's wound around his body, significantly differs between shots until they see Vince at the base station.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While Roy and John are at the boatyard searching for the girl's severed hand, when they walk into the mess of lumber neither of them can be seen in the other one's closeup, even though they both start looking around in the same spot, at precisely the same time.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Character mistake: When Dr. Brackett is showing the paramedic trainees the defibrillator and how it's used on a patient, Brackett places the paddle electrodes on the Defib tester to display its effectiveness, and says, "Eyes on the V-fib tester." However, it's not a V-fib tester to test for ventricular fibrillation, it's a Defib tester, testing the effectiveness of the external defibrillator's electrical shock.

Isolation - S6-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When the police officer who was struck by lightning is wheeled into the ER, just as Dixie, Brackett, and Early walk up the hallway, the two tape marks are visible on the floor right outside the doorway of treatment 2, where Dixie is about to stand. Additionally, we can see the outline of the transmitter wire on the back of Dixie's uniform.

The Boat - S6-E19

Revealing mistake: When Dixie's in the basement asking Gary why the lab is still backed up, the next shot shows the plumber working in the cabinet under the sink, but when it cuts to the next shot the plumber is gone, his tool box is closed, things are different/missing from the counters, and the tables and stools have been turned over with a mess all around, before the explosion even occurs.

Breakdown - S6-E15

Other mistake: While Charlie is trying to figure out what's wrong with the squad, when Captain Stanley, Roy and John are sitting around the table, there's a can of scouring cleanser which has yellow tape covering the "a" and "x" so all we see is the "ja" on the can, in order to hide its brand name, which is Ajax.

The Unlikely Heirs - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: After the husband and wife are pulled from the plane wreck, they're lying on the ground while Roy and Johnny are treating them. In this wide shot, which lasts about 12 seconds, have a look at Roy's face. He has no eyes or eyebrows, as part of his face has been blurred out, and when Roy moves his face it's quite bizarre to look at. Whoever edited and blurred Roy's face in this footage even matched his skin tone. This is visible on Netflix as well as the DVD, which was created in 2010 by Universal Studios, where Emergency! was filmed during its run on the air in the '70s. Don't know why this was done, but it's there.

Right at Home - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: When the unconscious boy is brought to the ER, he's taken into treatment 2, with a windowless door, but when Early is doing the lumbar tap on the boy, the door behind Early has a window, and also by the way the room is set up, we know it's treatment 1 he's in, not 2.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: At the restaurant, when they begin to work on getting Mrs. Merkle out from under the car, Vince sets the Biophone down on the table, and there's a netted, red glass candle on the table, but in a following closeup the candle's net has vanished and it's pinkish clear glass now. Other items on the table change as well.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Ruthie is wheeled into the ER, Dixie tells the attendants to put her in the treatment room where Dr. Early's waiting, and they wheel her into treatment 2 which has a windowless door, but when they're in the room the door has a window, which means she's in treatment 1, not 2. Plus the fact that both treatment rooms are set up differently.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of Roy and Johnny at the whale tank, the maintenance guy behind them is standing between the red bleacher seats and purple seats below, but in Roy and Johnny's closeups the guy is standing between the two top purple bleacher seats, then when the whale splashes, it goes back and forth yet again.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the kitchen talking about pooling money for Davey's Dogs, there are three small containers of milk on the table which have tape covering the brand names.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?
