Emergency!

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: During the fire at the apartment complex, there are strips of black material nailed to the tops of windows where the FX fire shoots out from below, and the doorway Roy passes when he's pulling on the hose has a fake ceiling and wall nailed directly into the door jamb, to control the strip of FX fire at the side.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex fire, just as Chet climbs the ladder and Marco holds the top of the ladder on the second floor balcony, we see the plumes of FX smoke spurting from the side inside the doorway behind them, and even see something quickly fanning the smoke.

On Camera - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When the boy who fell over the cliff is brought into the ER, Dix tells them to bring him to treatment 3 and we see them at treatment 3's door, which is on the same side of the hallway as treatment 4, with the red line closest to it (hall has red, green and yellow lines on the floor which run the length of the hall) However, in the shot from inside the treatment room, they're not in treatment 3, but are actually in treatment 1. Note that we see treatment 4 directly across the hall, which means they're in treatment 1, and also see the yellow line is closest to the door which means it's on the opposite side of the hallway.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Chet are at the site of the traffic accident, during this scene the shadows' lengths - from long, to short, back to long, and its directions keep changing drastically. Such as when Chet stands in the middle of the road, looking in the direction of the vehicle with the siren, his long shadow is cast to his left, but the oncoming vehicle also casts a shadow to its left (even though it's heading towards Chet), then in the next shot that vehicle's shadow has moved to its opposite side.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a long shot of the Land Rover driving down a long stretch of road towards the camera and then passing it. That road, landscape, and mountains are very distinctive. As Roy, John, and Chet continue talking and driving, when they reach the scene of a traffic accident, Chet sets up a flare behind the Land Rover and another flare behind the pickup truck, then Chet sees a car coming from the direction which the Land Rover was headed. The problem is that the road/landscape/mountains shown earlier in the long shot of the Land Rover, which had been driving from the opposite direction, is the same that's shown here, as Chet tries to stop the car. Then to top it off, when Chet first notices the second car in the distance, it's coming from the opposite direction of the first car, but once again the view is exactly the same.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett is in his office talking to Patsy's manager, he's paged and then told, "Treatment room 2, STAT," and he answers, "On my way," but Brackett doesn't rush to treatment room 2, he goes to room 230 which is Patsy's room, and Early even calls for a code blue in room 230.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett and Morton are with Patsy in her hospital room, there are two closeups of the Datascope 850, but there's an entirely different unit at the foot of Patsy's bed monitoring her EKG, not the Datascope 850. The same thing happens again later, when Brackett rushes in and Early tells him that Patsy was throwing more PVCs.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: During the structure fire, when Captain Stanley uses the HT and says "Engine 17, you can pump to Engine 51," in the next shot a second cameraman carrying a handheld camera can be seen between Engine 17 and Engine 9, as he's shooting footage. He's visible again three shots later, standing beside Engine 17, and once again right after they lower the ladder through the hole in the roof.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Audio problem: When Roy and Johnny are tending to the actor with possible MI, Brackett asks for an EKG strip, and after Johnny hooks the scope up to the Biophone, we hear him say, "Lead 2," but his mouth is closed and doesn't move.

Drivers - S2-E13

Other mistake: Roy and Johnny are in the squad when they're dispatched to the fire at the junior high, and while en route in the interior shot, in the rear-view mirror we see the reflection of the driver's helmet, and it has an 18 on it, instead of 51.

School Days - S2-E14

Other mistake: At the start of the episode, the milk carton that Johnny takes out of the fridge has red tape covering the brand name and logo.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the man who doesn't speak English is in treatment 4, there's a closeup of the Datascope 850 monitor, and then the girl points to the EKG monitoring unit behind the gurney and asks Dixie why the thing is bouncing up and down. Problem is that the Datascope 850 is used by the paramedics and it's not actually in that treatment room. The treatment room has a Zenith Travenol unit.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the attempted suicide, the dispatcher states that he's in apartment 2A, and when Roy and John arrive at the scene the police officer also says he's in apartment 2A, but when they get to the second floor they pass apt 2A and go to the apartment at the end of the hall.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 responds to the traffic accident, after Captain Stanley hands Johnny the Ajax tool, in the closeup it's obvious that the hands are not really Johnny's. Then there's another shot of the real Johnny, but once he removes his goggles, interestingly it's the stunt double who's in the following shots by the car, even when Johnny cuts himself, it's the stunt double.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to 'traffic accident, victim trapped', when they get the anti-shock suit on the boy Roy's watch reads 5:25. Then at the hospital, when Johnny asks Roy about the time, Roy looks at his watch and says "About 5:00."

The Stewardess - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, when Roy asks Johnny if he knows the flight attendant's name yet, the headset is around Roy's neck, but in the closeup it vanishes, then next shot it reappears again.

Body Language - S3-E12

Character mistake: When Johnny is about to tell Roy what the problem is, the dispatcher drops tones and says "Station 51, Engine 36, Truck 116, small aircraft in trouble.," but when Captain Stanley responds we hear him say, "Squad 51, 10-4...," even though he should have said, "Station 51, 10-4...," because both Engine 51 and Squad 51 were dispatched.

It's How You Play the Game - S4-E19

Audio problem: At the scene of the vehicle accident, Johnny asks the driver, "Where does it hurt?" but when he continues to ask, "Right here?" we can see he's not actually moving his mouth, just before he's punched in the nose by the driver.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, after Chet takes a spoonful of hot cheddar cheese the bowl is near his plate, but when it cuts to facing the other guys that bowl is on the other side of the table near Marco, then back and forth again.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, in the closeup shot of Chet, Roy, and Johnny as they're talking about their trip, we can see the Land Rover hood's base plate where the vehicle's spare tire is supposed to be mounted, but the tire isn't there because of the mounted camera facing the actors in the vehicle. In other shots the spare tire is properly mounted on the Land Rover's hood.
