Continuity mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to Oceanland Park, when the engine and squad drive through the parking lot and pull up in front of the sky-tower, the entire left side of the lot is completely empty, but in the overhead shot as they head to the top of the sky-tower for the rescue, that side of the lot is filled with buses, cars, and other vehicles.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny walk into the day room all spiffy and ready to leave for the Tom Jensen Show, Chet's legs go back and forth from being uncrossed to crossed, depending on the angle of the shot. As an aside, something to watch for is Henry the dog burying his face between Chet's legs, and Chet's reaction.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Bittner brings John and Roy back to the lake for the fishing, the boat on the lake explodes and Roy and John dive into the lake and rescue the burn victim, but when they're at the back of the camper with the victim, heading to the clinic, Roy's and John's jeans and shirts are completely dry.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: While in Santa Rosa County, after Roy and John rescue the two injured rock climbers, and also later after they rescue the burn victim from the lake, the Richards ambulance that transports the patients has license plate number "Z125631" which is pretty funny. That plate number should look familiar, as it's the same plate number on the ambulance in LA County, seen in many episodes such as "Rules of Order", "Unlikely Heirs", and "Not Available."Super Grover
Revealing mistake: On the roof of the jail, Roy buckles his safety belt around his waist, with an extra belt for the prisoner hanging from it as well. When Roy removes the second belt from his own, we can see two carabiners that are now attached to his lifebelt, which go down into Roy's pants. Those carabiners are presumably attached to extra support under Roy's pants.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: During the rescue of the two mountain climbers who are stuck on the side of a building, when Johnny and Roy are hanging from the lines which are attached to the lifebelts buckled around their waists, we can also see that attached to their lifebelts are carabiners, which are tucked inside their shirts. Those carabiners are presumably attached to extra support under their clothing. Johnny's is particularly visible, while Roy tries to cover his carabiners with his hand.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Roy, John, Brice, and Bob are standing at the nurses' station, there's a closeup of Brice's arm as he explains that he's checking his drug box, and the watch he's wearing in the closeup has a gold/silver metal link watchband, but Brice is wearing a different style watch, with leather straps and buckle.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Brice completely ticks off John regarding the advisory committee while standing at the nurses' station, when John and Roy walk up the hallway to the receiving entrance Roy's not wearing his watch as he's carrying the drug box, but at receiving he's wearing his watch.Super Grover
Other mistake: When the self defense instructor tries to use Mrs. Pestone to demonstrate the flip, he puts his arm around her and covers her mouth, then it cuts to a shot of Squad 51 rushing down a street. This particular shot is from 5x8, "The Lighter-Than-Air Man," when Roy drives past the school kids and crossing guard.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to "plane that hit building," after they rescue the two aboard the plane, just before the explosion when the orange combustible drum is propelled into the air, we can see the stunt's projectile to get the drum airborne.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to "accident with injuries," en route one of the camera angles is from the POV behind Roy and John, where the back of the squad is located. The problem is that there's bright sunlight on their backs as they’re driving, when it shouldn't be there. Artistic license is acceptable, but having so much sunlight where it should not be reveals that Squad 51 is not in its normal state.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Roy explains to Mrs. Evans that she shouldn't call them every time Simba runs off, when Chet finds Simba, Johnny holds him with his right hand behind the front legs and left hand under the tail, but closeup Johnny's hands are in the opposite positions.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When 51's guys are on the roof of the jail, Johnny sets up the red hose roller with a safety line on the roof edge between the two ladders, but when Roy climbs up the orange ladder to go over the edge, that hose roller with the safety line are not on the roof edge and can be seen still lying on the ground, then it reappears in place in the aerial shot. Additionally, when Roy goes over the roof to make his descent, there's a second silver hose roller at the base of the overhang, which was never actually placed there.Super Grover
