Emergency!

Surprise - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While Roy is hanging off the side of the building with the second victim, Johnny's trying to tie off the swaying sign, then after he asks for some slack the second time, there's an overhead shot from the roof, and we can see the shadow of the camera and a bit of a crew member, at the bottom of the screen. Then a few shots later, from the same POV, we still see the camera's shadow, and we also see the leg of a crew member (white sneaker and dark pants) walk into the shot and back out, at the left of the screen.

Surprise - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When 51's guys get to the roof of the building with the swaying sign, Marco places the silver hose roller on the roof edge, but when Captain Stanley and Stevie's father lean over the edge to talk to Stevie, the second larger hose roller is already in place near the silver hose roller, even though the second one hasn't been brought to the roof yet by Engine 95's guys.

Fuzz Lady - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: At the park, when the attendants load the mugger into the ambulance, and also when the ambulance backs up to Rampart's ER receiving, just as Squad 51 turns and starts backing up, the type of ambulance that parked is a station wagon, but in the next shot while Squad 51 is still backing up, that ambulance has suddenly become the truck type.

Frequency - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are at the construction site with the injured father and son, Rampart is also on the line with two other squads - Squad 18, treating a pulmonary edema, and Squad 36, treating a bike accident. When Marco and Chet carry up the stokes basket, we hear the dispatcher saying, "Engine 21 and Squad 18, heart case...," even though Squad 18 is already tied up with the pulmonary edema.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Character mistake: When Johnny first contacts Rampart via landline about the stabbing victim, while Roy is across the street with the gunshot victim, Brackett gets on the line and asks Johnny if he started an IV, to which Johnny replies no, then he asks what the vitals are. Johnny has only just made contact with Brackett about this patient, so Johnny could not have started an IV without the doctor's consent, Brackett knows this. This goes against established procedure.

Body Language - S3-E12

Character mistake: When Johnny is about to tell Roy what the problem is, the dispatcher drops tones and says "Station 51, Engine 36, Truck 116, small aircraft in trouble.," but when Captain Stanley responds we hear him say, "Squad 51, 10-4...," even though he should have said, "Station 51, 10-4...," because both Engine 51 and Squad 51 were dispatched.

Prestidigitation - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: Just after Brackett tells Early that the patient he was talking to is his father, it cuts to a shot of Squad 51 pulling up the driveway, and the Engine 51 we see parked in the apparatus bay is not the current Ward LaFrance pumper, it's the original Crown engine from seasons 1 and 2.

Show generally

Other mistake: On Emergency! there's a noticeable lack of blood (not that it's a bad thing), even on the medical disposable gloves, during numerous scenes such as when a victim has arterial bleeding from carotid, brachial, and femoral arteries, or during the surgical procedures, and the labor/delivery scenes.

Foreign Trade - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When 51's guys are at the table eating and discussing Roy and Johnny's deal, Johnny tosses his car keys to Roy, and in the following shots those keys vanish and reappear on the table repeatedly, and in the shots where the keys appear on the table, it's the ketchup, mustard, and napkins that have vanished. Also notice that the ketchup's brand name is covered.

Deliberate mistake: When O'Brien shows up at the nurses' station for Dixie's answer, after she declines the offer Dixie walks off to a patient who's brought in by the police, and the last closeup that's shown of O'Brien is flipped - note his hair is parted the opposite way and the background is backwards.

[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?
