Emergency!

The Bash - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: At Vic's party, when Roy and Johnny are walking up the steps of the house (just before seeing Monique), the reflection of the cameraman holding the handheld camera is visible in the door's glass, when he steps backwards as the guys walk in.

The Promise - S3-E11

Plot hole: When Bo Jenson visits Richard Allen, he takes the elevator at the far south end of the ER wing, near the ER nurses' station, straight up to the 6th floor and then turns left to get to Richard's room in the short hallway, by the windows. When Richard jumps out the window and lands on the ledge, we see he's on the south side of Rampart's main building. Considering the actual floor plan of the hospital, this is completely impossible. The ER is located in the south lower wing and only has two floors, so Jensen could not have gone up to the 6th floor from the elevator he took.

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Visible crew/equipment: While Roy and Johnny are climbing up to rescue the boy on the bridge, there's a closeup of the boy as he breathes heavily. When this shot pans to the right we see Roy (his stunt double actually) place the rope behind his back, and a mysterious dark gloved hand quickly appears behind Roy (and it's not Johnny's hand).

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny leave Rampart and are heading back in the squad, about 16:40 minutes in, as they are discussing whether Roy has told his wife about house hunting, you can see two signs on the ceiling of the squad's cab. The signs say 'Emergency Saturday 8PM Rehearsal Mark VI Prod'. Possibly they are magnetic signs for the squad doors so people don't mistake the squad for a real fire department vehicle?

Camera Bug - S4-E10

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, when Johnny tells the guys that he sold one of his photographs for $25, Chet claims the money is his and points to everyone in the photo, noting that Captain Stanley, Marco, Mike, Roy and Johnny are all in the photo but Chet's not, which means he's the one who actually used the camera and snapped the photo. However, the itty bitty problem here is that earlier in the episode, during the rescue, we can see that after Marco heads up the hill that it's actually Chet who's with Mike, Johnny, and Roy carrying the victim up the side of the hill, alongside Captain Stanley. So the only one who could have really taken that photograph was Marco, which completely contradicts the whole bit at the end.

School Days - S2-E14

Other mistake: After the guys rescue Dr. Temple from under the library bookcase, when the attendants take him to the ambulance Johnny alone leaves with him, and while Billy and Roy are still in the library talking we hear the ambulance leaving with its siren blaring, but when the ambulance arrives at Rampart the attendant opens the back door and somehow Billy has actually joined Johnny and Dr. Temple in the ambulance.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: While Roy and John are on scene with the "car over cliff" Johnny heads down to the car too quickly, and when he ends up falling his mic transmitter and wire slip out from their hidden area, and become visible on the front of his shirt.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: While Roy is showing Brice the squad, after Brice annoyingly locks Squad 51's side bay door, he asks, "How about the OB box?" but the subtitles read, "How about the OV box?" Then a minute later Brice says, "Let's look at the OB box," and again the subtitles read "OV box."

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: When the ambulance arrives and they're loading Johnny onto the ambulance, Captain Stanley says, "Okay, Chet, take the squad..." but the subtitles get both characters wrong, it reads that a "Paramedic" says, "Okay, Chip, take the squad..." There is no Chip.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the very start, when the camera moves through Station 10 while the guys are asleep upstairs, we see one of the engines has license plate E111196, but en route there's a closeup of Rescue 10 and its license plate is also E111196.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to "traffic accident with injuries," when they're on scene at the plant with the injured tanker driver, pay particular attention to the background behind Engine 51 while Roy is on the Biophone with Rampart. When Brackett says, "51, can you give me any more information," we can actually see Station 51 aka 127, directly behind Roy.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While rescuing the invalid, when Roy climbs out of the second floor window he suffers an electrical shock, and when he falls in the closeup we can see the crash mat that he lands on when part of it flips up from the force of his weight. Also note that all the shrubs below the window have vanished.

Hypochondri-Cap - S6-E23

Revealing mistake: After Johnny's line gets snarled while testing Wally's equipment at the studio, when Roy lowers himself on his own line wearing his lifebelt, we can see the added carabiners that are attached to the lifebelt which go down into Roy's pants, and are presumably attached to the extra support the actor is wearing under his pants.

Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Revealing mistake: At World Picture Corp, when John and the guy with the broken clavicle are lowered from the overhead joists they're both wearing lifebelts buckled around their waists. The problem is that once they reach the ground, we can see the additional carabiner attached to John's lifebelt, which is also attached to extra green support protruding from under John's shirt. We can also see the victim's additional carabiner going under his flannel shirt. While Roy is on the line with Rampart, when John removes the victim's lifebelt, the extra carabiner is still protruding from under the victim's shirt and John places his hand over it.

The Stewardess - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: After Johnny joins Roy in the ambulance and the patient flatlines they continue to Rampart, and when Brackett asks 51 for a strip, if we look out the window that's beside Johnny, we can see GlamourTrams in the distance. And when Roy says, "Isopeterenol drip, 10-4," we can see GlamourTrams right outside the window. They are driving around Universal's lot while shooting the footage inside the ambulance.

The Old Engine Cram - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Dixie shows Johnny the newspaper, Johnny reads the ad aloud which states, "Wanted, 1925 Paige fire truck, $25,000, if in mint condition," and Johnny says that it is exactly what the ad submitter wants. The "it" being Roy and Johnny's refurbished fire truck. The problem is that in 3x2, "The Old Engine," when Johnny and Roy are telling Chet and Marco about their purchase, Johnny says that it's a 1932 Dennis, and when they're looking it over, the blue "Dennis" emblem is attached to the hood of the engine.

Equipment - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: After the MI patient from the construction site is brought to treatment 1, when Early uses the laryngoscope for an endotracheal intubation, we can see that he merely places the laryngoscope at the side of the man's face, especially since we can still see the entire distal end beside the man's neck.

The Bash - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: While Johnny, Roy, and Vic try to outrun Charlene inside Stage 3, after heading down the ladder, when Roy opens the door to find Charlene standing there, Johnny's holding the red extinguisher in his right hand and the nozzle in his left hand, but next shot they've switched hands.

Details - S4-E12

Other mistake: During the structure fire, when Engine 98 rolls up we can see the large red vinyl adhered to the top of the engine's cab. Then when Truck 106 rolls up we see its company number 106 on the door, but in the overhead shot we can see the number 8 on the roof of the cab, not 106. This presumably means that the door has one of the prop dept's magnetic decals imprinted with 106, and the roof still shows the Truck company's real number.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: When John and Roy treat the 12 year old boy in anaphylactic shock, Early states, "Start IV D5W, 1 milligram epinephrin IV push," and John confirms the order. Then after giving Rampart a new set of vitals which are poor, Early orders, "Add 50 milligrams Benadryl IV push." But when John confirms that order he only says, "1 milligram epinephrine IV push," (which is the earlier order) and Early actually okays John's incorrect repeat of the order, even though John did not confirm the order of "50 milligrams Benadryl."

[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.
