Emergency!

The Game - S6-E1

Other mistake: The USC game that Roy and Johnny are assigned to is supposed to be a sold-out game, but in closeup shots of the crowd around the guys, we can see that around the small crowd of extras used during the shoot, the seats are empty.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When John is putting the pompier belt around the waist of the man stuck up in the tree, he buckles it so the flap is going towards the man's right, but in the next shot as Chet climbs the ladder behind John, the life belt is around the man's waist the opposite way. Then, when John cuts the rope, the belt is back on the original way.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny arrive on scene with the injured gymnast, as they enter the building in the exterior shot it's the last door that's open, but in the next interior shot that last door is shut, and it's the second to last door that's open.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are at the movie studio, while they're dangling from their lifelines they're trying to help the actress dangling from her own lines, but when she freaks out she drops her wand (yes, a wand) in the wide shot, but next closeup she's still holding it.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marco and Chet use the jaws to lift the car off the victim, Roy begins to get her vitals, then it cuts to Captain Stanley on the Biophone saying, "Vitals second victim, pulse is 120, respiration's 30, she's pale and clammy," but it's not until quite a few shots later that Roy actually shouts those vitals to Captain Stanley.

Grateful - S5-E21

Character mistake: At the restaurant, when Captain Stanley's on the Biophone with Rampart, Brackett asks, "Is there any evidence of external hemorrhaging on your second victim?" and then Cap responds, "We can only see superficial cuts at this time... Pupils are equal and reactive, negative on the IV at this time," as if Brackett ordered an IV, but Brackett never said anything to Squad 51 about any IV.
