Emergency!

Communications - S5-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When they wheel Dianne (the OD) into the ER it's one long continuous shot from receiving to treatment 1, shot from the POV of the patient lying on the stretcher. As she's wheeled into treatment 1, the camera faces Johnny so we can see up the hallway behind him, and the entire admitting desk and waiting area are all blacked out, and there are two men, one of which (possibly the director) is sitting on a chair facing up the hallway where Johnny is and the scene is taking place.

Other mistake: When John and Roy get back to the station, they head to the kitchen and John takes the hot pot of stew out of the oven with potholders, and when he quickly tries to lift the lid without the potholder, his pain makes it clear that it's burning hot, so he uses the mitt to lift the lid. There's a long metal serving spoon that was left in the stew, and John just lifts it up and starts serving the stew with no problem, even though that spoon should have been too hot to even touch.

Continuity mistake: After Roy's had his arm bandaged in the ER, Brackett points to the treatment room Johnny's in and says he's in 4, and Roy heads there. Then after speaking to Johnny, when Roy opens the door to leave Johnny's treatment room, we can see the treatment room facing Johnny's, and it's treatment 2, which means that Johnny is actually in treatment 1, not 4. Plus the fact that the boy with the heart problem is supposed to be in treatment 1 at that time.

Revealing mistake: After Station 51 reaches the burning house, when Engine 210 rolls up and lays out a supply line, as the camera zooms in to the back of Engine 210, we can see the large, red, rectangular material that is adhered to the engine with the number 210 printed on it.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny calls in to Rampart, Brackett answers and presses the two buttons to record the conversation, then tells Johnny to standby leaving the two buttons depressed, while the drunk driver is brought in. In the next shot, a closeup of Johnny, Brackett tells 51 to go ahead, and in the following shots Brackett continues to listen to Johnny, but none of the buttons are depressed on the tape machine to record the conversation. Then when Brackett gets off the line, he actually presses the tape machine's off button, as if the buttons had been depressed and the conversation recorded.

Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the construction site, when Johnny and Roy climb the tower mast, they stop on the blue platform with the crane operator's cab before continuing up to the main jib. When Roy, Johnny, and the man they rescue walk back across the jib the man slips, and there are a few shots showing the underside of the blue platform, and we can see people moving around on that platform overhead. There should only be four people on the tower crane: Roy, Johnny, the man they rescue, and the officer holding the bullhorn, who's standing at the other end of the jib, by the mast. Nobody is supposed to be on that platform.
