Emergency!

Communications - S5-E13

Other mistake: Brackett has Johnny and Roy in his office to listen to recordings on two cassette tapes - the first of 51's transmission with Rampart, and the second of 49's transmission with Pediatric Clinic. Brackett plays the first tape, pops it out and then plays the second tape. The problem is that when Brackett puts the first cassette tape back in the player, it's been rewound, even though Brackett never actually rewound the tape.
