Emergency!

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Other mistake: At the end of the episode, when 51's guys are in the kitchen waiting to see the "terrific idea", in the closeup John presses the tape recorder's third white button to play it, and we hear the dispatcher's voice, but in the next shot we continue to hear the dispatcher saying, "1305 Overland Ave, apt C, cross street, Pacific..." despite the fact that we can see all the white buttons are now up, none are actually depressed.

Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the man who was electrocuted in his house, after they start the IV, Johnny says that he's going to get blankets, so he walks out the door then turns left and walks off. It's funny because the squad is parked on the street, which is to the right of the door, and the only thing to the left is the garage. Then Johnny comes back, again from the left of the doorway, with a package of the yellow blanket from the squad.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Deliberate mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on the Coast Guard helicopter, approaching Catalina Island with the injured diver, there is a closeup shot of them looking out the windows, which is a flipped shot - note the backwards paramedic patch on the right sleeve, instead of being on the left sleeve.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While Squad 51 is out on the run (quite literally) with the female OD, Johnny gets a cut on his elbow which he keeps fidgeting with even after it's bandaged. When Roy and Johnny get back to the station and see the old engine, Johnny's cut has vanished.

Parade - S4-E13

Other mistake: After the apartment house fire, the restored old engine is trashed by a hail of bricks. Later, when Roy and Johnny are talking about who won the first prize, the old engine in the back looks nothing like it did when it was wrecked on the street. Also, the shot of the old engine that's shown here, is actually the same footage shown in season 3, "The Old Engine", with the lighting dimmed to signify nighttime, when at the end of the episode Roy and Johnny decide to keep it. Note the exact same broken pieces of windshield, tires, hubcaps, dirt, shadows, everything.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the dispatcher sends Squad 51 on the probable overdose run, the address given is 2267 West Hill, apt 6, but when Roy and Johnny are at the door, both entering and exiting, the house number above the stairs is 11044.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: After the Bengal tiger jumps on Les, the feline walks up the aisle that is directly in front of the self-serve ice cream freezer, and knocks over the pyramid of Hi-C cans that block the aisle, but a few shots later the tiger walks up that same aisle (note the ice cream freezer), and the mess of Hi-C cans have vanished.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: After Johnny sees the Bengal tiger in the market, he backs away, and when Johnny is about to walk through the curtain, in the shot from the back room we see the tall shelving display of chip bags on the other side. However, in the next shot from the store that display of bags is gone, there's only a display of loaves of bread in front of the fruits and vegetables.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Deliberate mistake: At the market, after the tiger knocks over the pyramid of Hi-C cans, which were set up blocking the aisle just for that purpose, the officer tells Les, "Down that aisle," and the next shot of the aisle is a flipped shot - note the backwards words on the upside-down boxes. Two shots later that same aisle is shown properly, not flipped.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: After Roy and Johnny's pre-dawn rescue at the market, by the time Roy advises dispatch about the tiger and when Animal Control shows up at the market, it's already past sunrise, but when Les and the officer walk into the store and then when they follow the tiger up onto the roof, it's nighttime again.

I'll Fix It - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is at the scene of the oil well eruption, underneath a house which was built atop an abandoned oil field, just after Johnny tells Roy that he thinks the whole foundation is slipping, it cuts to a shot of the front porch as one of the porch columns (and part of another) breaks and falls. However, when the guys finally free the trapped man and carry him out, all the columns are upright once again.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Roy tells Johnny to call Barbara, who heard something that he didn't even say at the movies, in the view from the kitchen Engine 51 is not in the apparatus bay which means everyone else is on a run, but when dispatch drops tones we hear Captain Stanley respond KMG365, and then see the engine parked in the bay.

The Hard Hours - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are on the "child locked in a bathroom" run, Johnny makes a hasty retreat leaving Roy to deal with the "child." The bar of soap Roy uses is on a curved pedestal soap dish, and that dish is either curved towards the wall, or turned the opposite way, depending on the camera angle.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire including a chemical lab, Johnny and Roy put on SCBA tanks with distinctive markings/stickers before going in, but those tanks change while inside and when they exit with the victims of chemical smoke inhalation.

Honest - S2-E17

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the guy who somersaulted off the roof into the pool, Johnny is in the pool giving him oxygen, and in the closeups Johnny's left hand varies between very hairy, not hairy at all, normal fingernails and bitten up fingernails. Additionally, the hand holding the mask on the boy's face changes back and forth between Johnny's left and right hand, between shots.

Honest - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Station 51 is dispatched to the fire and explosion, in the overhead wide shot we see Gage getting into the squad on the passenger side, but in the closeup Gage is in the driver's seat, and when they arrive at the scene it's DeSoto who's driving.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the industrial fire, once they arrive there are a few shots of the crowd of bystanders, many in their robes. This footage is from the first episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act", during the factory fire at the start of the episode.

Dilemma - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When the guys are dispatched to the cardiac patient stuck in the elevator, Gage leaves the mop and bucket in the middle of the floor in the apparatus bay and rushes to the squad, but when they roll out the bay floor is clear.

Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are dispatched to the home of the woman who's in labor, the deputy shatters the door's pane of glass, but there is absolutely no glass on the carpet once they enter the house.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When the TV catches fire in the kitchen, Captain Stanley unplugs it, and when it cuts to Roy running into the kitchen with the fire extinguisher, he passes Marco, who just ran into the apparatus bay. All of this while we hear Cap's voice telling Marco, who already ran out, to get the asbestos blanket. Then, in the next shot, Marco is still standing behind Captain Stanley in the kitchen.

[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?
