The Nuisance - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: While Early is examining Johnny in the ER, telling Roy about symptoms for ruptured liver or spleen, in the closeup Roy's holding up the IV bag with his right hand, but next wide shot it's held up in Roy's left hand.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and Roy are driving in the squad, they're dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', and when they arrive at the incident which is a football player who kicked in his TV screen, Roy's hair is much shorter - note the front and sideburns. Then back in the squad it's the same length as earlier.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are leaving the home of the football player who kicked in his TV screen, in the interior shot as they're walking out, Roy has a stethoscope around his neck and is holding the Biophone with his right hand and drug box with his left. In the next exterior shot, the stethoscope is gone and the drug box and Biophone have switched hands.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: At the start of shift, after Captain Stanley gives the guys assignments, when the last shift rolls up in the squad, in the closeups Roy is suddenly holding his helmet while he and Johnny are talking to Dwyer, but it's gone again in the wide shot. When the squad is dispatched, Roy grabs his helmet which had been lying on the engine's running board in all the wide shots.

It's How You Play the Game - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: While Johnny tells the other guys that the losers of the baseball game, between 51 and 36, will have to pay for the entire cost of the picnic, Chet's eating an apple which has less eaten by the time he tosses it into the garbage.

It's How You Play the Game - S4-E19

Other mistake: After Chet says that he doesn't like when people expect too much of him, Squad 51 is dispatched to "man bit by an animal," and when Roy gets into the squad the highly reflective chrome spotlight has been sprayed with a dulling spray, to temporarily dull the surface.

Equipment - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: During this episode Brackett is wearing a tie with white, light blue, and dark blue broad stripes, which should be tied in an identical manner in consecutive shots, but it's not. One example is when Brackett examines the tree surgeon, but when he waits in the hall with Morton and Dixie while Malcolm takes x-rays, Brackett's tie is tied differently, and when he walks back into the room the tie reverts back.

Equipment - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Roy's injured during the warehouse fire and is carried out, in the closeup he and Johnny are not wearing their turnouts, but in the next wide shot Johnny's suddenly wearing his turnout again as he contacts Rampart via Biophone.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny walks into the office to drop off the trash bin, he sees the Chief's clock on the wall and it reads 2:09, but when Johnny brings the clock to Captain Stanley and he gives it to Chet to hide, the clock's hands read 6:44. And when they're all dispatched, the timeout is 14:15.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Other mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', as the squad rolls out we can see the Crown engine from the show's first two seasons parked in the apparatus bay, instead of 51's current Ward LaFrance.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: After Johnny discovers that the white stuff he left cooking on the stove has turned green, Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire, so everyone rolls on the call. When Johnny and Roy return, and Johnny decides to dump all the food he cooked, a large stock pot has mysteriously and conveniently appeared on the counter, where it did not exist when they left.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the landslide, the engine company get into their turnouts and roll out, but in the next exterior shot as the engine drives past the camera, not only are the guys not in their turnouts, it's too obvious that none are 51's guys, and the one in Chet's jumpseat even leans forward. Presumably they're 127's guys.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is on scene at the landslide, there's a dresser on the grass in front of the house, and when the explosion occurs due to the broken gas main, in the closeups as Johnny dives to the ground there's what looks like a can of gasoline (used for the stunt perhaps) atop that dresser that wasn't there before, and it's also not in the wide shots as Johnny dives down.

Above and Beyond... Nearly - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: Dixie and Brackett rush onto the elevator with a crash cart to go up to the third floor, for a possible MI in the dental clinic. The camera's POV is from the elevator, and in one continuous shot, without cutting away, we see the ER hallway through the open doors, then the doors close and in a few moments the doors open on the third floor. Even though the set has changed a bit, we can tell it's still the ER hallway by things such as the same scuff marks on the floor, and we can also catch a glimpse of the paramedic status board on the wall, where the base station room is located.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: After Brackett tries unsuccessfully to get O'Brien on the line to ask about the fish tank, it cuts to an exterior shot of Station 51, and we hear the dispatcher say, "All units responding with Engine 3 cancel," but subtitles read, "Four units with Engine 3 cancelled."

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: When the man injured in the manhole is brought to treatment 6, Early tells Roy to patch him up for an EKG, but the subtitles read, "Patch one from the EKG," and then Early tells the x-ray technician to do a skull and chest series, but the subtitles read, "Skull and chest searches."

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Johnny and Roy get back to the station from their run, Roy leaves two cabinet doors wide open when he gets two coffee cups, but in the next shot as he shakes Jason's hand, those two doors are suddenly closed.

Quotes

[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?
