Emergency!

Inheritance Tax - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Dixie opens the door to Brackett's office, there's a pile of white papers on the desk in front of Brackett, but when he walks out of the office, in the view from the hallway, the desk lamp has moved and there are no papers where there were in the previous shot.

Inheritance Tax - S3-E9

Other mistake: After Mr. Winthrop is brought to the ER, there is a closeup of his EKG monitor as it's picking up multiple PVCs, but when Brackett asks him about the tension in his life, the monitor seen behind him is showing a flat line. This happens once again after Roy and John leave the treatment room, just before they move him to CCU.

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy breaks the window with the chair, the guys place the ladder against the window and Marco starts to climb up. In the next interior shot, just as Roy and Johnny lift the security guard, right outside the window we can see the corner of something else (platform-like), besides the top of the ladder.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: At the apartment complex fire, after Truck 82 sets its outriggers, Engine 28 is right behind them with their supply line and duals laid out, but quite a few shots later Engine 28 is just pulling up behind 82, even though they were already there all set up.

Promotion - S3-E7

Visible crew/equipment: While Early is listening to the heartbeat of the boy with a heart problem, Dixie is standing beside him, and on the glass case behind them we can see movement in the reflection, even though it's only the three of them in that treatment room.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when dispatch interrupts the mannequin practice with a structure fire, after the shot of Mike getting into his turnout, as Engine 51 rolls out of the apparatus bay, the reflection of array set lighting and two reflector screens are visible on the moving engine.

Crash - S1-E12

Other mistake: When Roy's talking to Dixie while John's waiting out in the squad, a call comes over the HT that Roy's holding, and Squad 51 is asked to respond to a 'possible heart case'. Roy pulls a piece of paper out of his pocket, and as we hear the dispatcher giving the address, we can see Keven Tighe softly mouthing the address at the same time that it's being given for the first time.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the car over the cliff at Bear Mountain, the timeout is 08:12, then when Roy contacts Rampart his watch reads 6:55. When Johnny checks the girl who can't see, his watch reads 12:45, but when Johnny contacts Rampart his watch reads 6:05. Then after the snakebite, when the guys carry Johnny to the back of Engine 51, Johnny's watch reads 10:35.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: After the snakebite, when the guys carry Johnny and place him at the back of Engine 51, the chrome spotlights are shiny and reflective, but in the closeups the spotlight near Marco has been partially sprayed with a dulling spray, to prevent the camera's reflection.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the scene of the traffic accident, when Johnny tries to calm the woman who cries that she's afraid, it cuts to a shot of Chet as the camera pans to the left, and we see the position of the pickup truck on the road. When they hear the siren of help coming, Chet stands in the road directing the vehicle, and the pickup is not where it was in that earlier shot, it's now much farther down the road.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a closeup of Roy, Johnny, and Chet, and it cuts to a long shot of the landscape around them while they're driving, then it cuts back to the closeup. The landscape the Land Rover passed in the long shot is entirely different than in the previous and following closeups.
