Emergency!

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Other mistake: When the squad and engine roll up on the scene of the bulldozer accident in the junkyard, just as the guy runs up to inform them about the victims, have a look at Squad 51's license plate number because it is not the normal prop plate number E999007.

Inferno - S3-E21

Other mistake: Just as Squad 51 reaches the Tank Motorway, in the shot of the squad as it drives towards the camera before it zooms out, look at the squad's license plate before it stops. Even through the haze, we can see that the plate number is not Squad 51's normal E999007.

Understanding - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: After John spots a cute nurse talking to Dixie, when he zeros in on Dix for the nurse's name Dixie's holding a pad in her left hand, but in the next closeup her left hand's empty as she gives John an entire run-down on that nurse.

Body Language - S3-E12

Deliberate mistake: While Squad 51 is chasing after Bill, who's slumped over in the saddle on the run-away horse, one of the shots of Bill from inside the squad is a flipped shot. Note the landscape, as well as the shadow being cast on Bill's right instead of his left.

The Promise - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Richard jumps out of Rampart's 6th floor window, the bottom of his feet are very filthy (impressive for someone in bed in a catatonic state), but when he wakes up while lying on the ledge and Johnny tries to control him, Richard's feet are now pretty clean.

Zero - S3-E10

Other mistake: When Roy and John are examining the boy who jumped from the ledge, they're standing at the back of Engine 85 while the boy's sitting on the tailboard, and we can see behind his head the vinyl material with the imprinted 85, covering the attached plate with the real company number.

Insomnia - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When Engine 51 gets the run in the middle of the night, Johnny's so tired that he stands on Engine 51's tailboard half asleep, and as it rolls out of the bay and makes a right turn, Roy shouts out to him that the run is not for them. There are two problems with this. The entire back of Engine 51 is different between the closeup and wide shot - the surface, the lights, the license plate area, etc. Also, the engine makes a right turn out of the bay, but Roy's looking out towards the left while he's shouting, as if the engine's turning left.

Paper Work - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: After Roy and John meet the new supply nurse, when Squad 51 rolls back into the station the license plate number on the back of Engine 51 ends in 174, but the engine's plate number should read 999058. Engine 127's license plate number is 180174.

On Camera - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: On the way into the treatment room with the unconscious boy, Gage is on the left side of the gurney holding the IV bag. Suddenly, he's on the right side, away from the bed.

Movie Nut

Limelight - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: While Brackett and Morton are working on the boy who was shot with a pellet gun, when Morton is about to intubate the boy, we see that the O2 mask has been removed from his face and lying behind the boy's head, but when Morton hooks up the hose to the ventilator, we see the O2 mask and its elastic are still around the boy's neck. Then when Brackett says, "Prep him," the mask is gone.

The Boat - S6-E19

Other mistake: Over the phone the bookie tells Sidney, "I'm having them pains again. I don't feel so good. Would you call some...," then collapses onto the floor. Then Station 51 is dispatched to "Possible heart attack," and the address is given, along with the apartment number 23. After 51 breaks into the bookie's apartment, soon one of the phones ring and Captain Stanley says, "Let me get this straight. Your name's Sidney, and you phoned in the heart attack, right? Now we're getting somewhere. How come you didn't have the address? What's your last name Sidney?" However, 51 was dispatched to the proper address and even the apartment number. Nobody else knew of the heart attack, and the victim did not phone it in.

The Boat - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: While 51 is breaking into the bookie's apartment, after Chet uses the axe on certain areas of the door he puts the axe down, and in the shot from inside the apartment Chet reaches in through the hole on the door to undo the chain and remove the bar, but when the door opens there's another new axe mark over the top lock that was not made by Chet.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Other mistake: While Brackett is a patient at Rampart, he phones to inquire about Tina, and when he rips off his hospital ID bracelet we can see the wood grain bathroom door as he heads for Tina's room. When he's in Tina's room, the wood grain bathroom door in her room is identical to the door in Brackett's room, revealing the same room is used for both patients.

All Night Long - S6-E21

Other mistake: When the woman from the car accident is in the ER, Morton uses the laryngoscope to intubate her, and hooks her up to the respirator, but then she goes into V-fib, and when the defibrillation and epinephrin are unsuccessful and she flatlines, even if the respirator hose came loose she would still have the intubation tube in her mouth, but she doesn't.

Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: During 51's basketball game against 16, when Chet takes his first shot and makes the basket the scoreboard now shows 51's at 16 and 16's at 30, then Chet makes the second basket, but the scoreboard shows 51's still at 16 and 16's at 32.

Paper Work - S6-E11

Other mistake: After 51 rescues the boy who was stuck in the storm drain and is brought to the ER, Brackett uses the laryngoscope for endotracheal intubation, but the problem is we can see when Brackett cups his left hand, he merely places the distal end of the laryngoscope over the top of his hand, not actually down into the boy's mouth.

Paper Work - S6-E11

Other mistake: When the foreman and secretary are rescued at the warehouse fire, two shots after we see the foreman climbing down the ladder, there's a shot of the grey steel drums marked 'acetone' with two lying on their sides on a wood pallet, while the guys hose down the fire. What's funny is that in the next shot there's a disposable plastic cup that has suddenly appeared on that pallet. Obviously while shooting the different takes one of the actors or crew members left their cup on the pallet before they resumed filming.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy, who are off duty, show up at the nurses' station so Johnny can sell some more tickets, note the paramedic status board on the wall in the base station room. In the closeups 51's red and yellow magnets show that both the engine and squad are at the station, but in the wide shots both magnets are in the other columns.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: At the freight yard fire, after the two men with toxic fume inhalation are located and rescued from the boxcar, Battalion 14 arrives and we see that the Battalion Chief is McConnike, and Captain Stanley even calls him "Chief." The problem is that it's not until episode 6x14, "Insanity Epidemic," in which McConnike is made the Battalion Chief, and that causes Cap to act a bit like a paranoid nut due to an incident years before. Episodes were often aired out of the order of which they were filmed. As an aside, when McConnike arrives, watch him trying to put on his turnout.

Family Ties - S6-E16

Revealing mistake: When the fire is started in the patient's room, which is caused by liquid shorting out the clock radio, at the end of the hallway we can see through the window's open shades and the view right outside the window is quite pretty, but in all of the exterior shots of Rampart there is no such view on any of its sides. It's a matte painting.
