Emergency!

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In the transition immediately before the man rescued from the sewer fire is brought into the hospital, the shot shows squad 51 and two ambulances in all three spots in the ambulance bay, however neither ambulance is the big box Mayfair type that was at the rescue scene. (00:11:20)

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: At the freight yard when the two men are talking to each other after the Montana man says that the operator has been a good friend, the front of the boxcar is seen, and some fire vehicles (a battalion car and a deluge) are visible on the left of the screen. When Engine & Squad 51 come on the scene, those fire vehicles have disappeared. (00:33:55 - 00:36:05)

Greatest Rescues of Emergency - S7-E5

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.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Factual error: This episode supposedly takes place as The Wedsworth-Townsend Act is signed into law July 17, 1970, yet, Squad 51 is a 1972 Dodge truck.

Propinquity - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the opening rescue where Roy and Johnny rescue the woman from the burning car, Johnny is relaying the woman's vitals to Rampart. Over his right shoulder, you can see a sticker on the trunk of the car behind them. This is probably a dealer sticker. In one scene, it is blue and red, and in another, it is blacked out. It returns to blue and red, only to be blacked out again.

Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scenes where Johnny and Roy are transporting the injured hikers in the back of the pickup truck, Roy's watch appears, disappears, then appears again.

Promotion - S3-E7

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.

Dilemma - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: At the start, Station 51 and Truck 8 are dispatched to the cardiac patient stuck in the elevator, and we even see Truck 8 roll up in front of the building in the overhead exterior shot, but in the hotel it's 127's guys with 51's.

That Time of Year - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy rappel down the cliff with the downed hang gliders, both of their lifebelts are buckled going from their left to right sides, but in Johnny's first closeups when he's with the second victim, Johnny's lifebelt is on the opposite way, note that it's buckled going from his right to left. Then once the glider falls Johnny's belt is on the original way.

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Character mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the heatstroke victim in the polar bear costume, they're on different sides of the victim when Roy says, "Twitching here in both arms," and Johnny looks at her left arm and responds, "Yeah, the same thing over here too." And then it happens again, when Roy says, "Got some heavy spasms in these arms," and Johnny responds, "Yeah, same thing over here."

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Other mistake: While Roy, John, and Chet are talking about the party, and how emotional it all was, we hear Hookrader say, "Lopez," just as he walks into the kitchen where Marco Lopez is sitting, but the subtitles read, "Hello, guys."

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy rappel down the cliff to the downed police traffic helicopter, Johnny gets on the HT and says, "All right, Cap, this is HT 51..." but the subtitles actually read, "Hi, Cap, this is HE 51..." Then when they reach the chopper, Johnny says, "There it goes," and Roy says, "Okay, I'll take this side," but the subtitles reverse who says both lines.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Engine 51 rolls up to the house with the fire in the toilet and then also at the hydrant that Roy and Johnny lock off, Engine 51's license plate reads 110856 (different engine). However, right after Chet proposes a treaty, when Station 51 is dispatched to the "construction accident," just as the front bay door opens in the shot from inside the apparatus bay, Engine 51's plate reads 180174.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Other mistake: When John and Roy are up on the scaffold with the injured man during the sniper fire, from the time they unfurl the large tarp and tie it off to the beams the sniper fires zero shots at them, zip, but later at the station Chet asks John, in all seriousness, if he got a good look at the tarp before they left, and tells him that the tarp looked like Swiss cheese due to the sniper fire.

Boot - S2-E19

Other mistake: When Brackett asks Early to see the patient (Jaime Farr) who claims he can't move his arm because of a curse, Early walks into treatment 5, but in the shot from inside the room we can see that they're in treatment 2.

Boot - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: After Roy frees the woman's fingers from the mixer, they use the yellow dish towel and she tosses it into the sink, but in the next shot when Johnny suggests serving Mai Tais, the yellow towel is suddenly back in her hands and the white towel is now over Johnny's shoulders.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the drunk driver arrives in the ER and is taken into treatment 5, Vince is with the intoxicated man, but at the accident scene while they're still trying to get the little girl out of the car, after Roy checks Debbie's pupillary response, in the closeup of Debbie's mother Vince is still standing right beside her. Neat trick for Vince to be in two places at the same time.

Boot - S2-E19

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the woman whose hand is caught in the mixer, we can see tape on the side of the stand mixer (Sunbeam) as well on the food containers, covering all their brand names.

Helpful - S2-E12

Other mistake: Jamie Farr appears in 2x19 "Boot" as Alan Austen, the guy who claims that he can't move his arm because of a curse, but he's mistakenly listed in the credits at the end of this episode.

[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?
