Emergency!

Fools - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the chimney explosion, en route there is a moving bird's-eye view as the filming chopper follows 51's vehicles making a right turn. On the ground below, there are two people standing beside a blue station wagon, and one points up to the chopper flying overhead.

Visible crew/equipment: After Station 51 is dispatched to the bulldozer accident, just before Engine 51 comes to a stop at the junkyard there's a shot from the perspective of Engine 51's roof, with the Beacon Ray dome light in front, and on the light's red and chrome surface we can see the reflection of the camera mounted on the roof behind the dome light.

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are working on the squad's engine, while Johnny's lying on the mechanic's creeper, Roy is holding a spray can with white tape wrapped around the top of the can, so the brand name would not be visible.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John are in the ER's staff lounge discussing Donaldson, Roy's button, second from the top, is buttoned up in the wide shots, but is unbuttoned in his closeups during the conversation.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When John and Roy are searching for the missing man during the fire at the winery, a flaming piece of debris falls in front of Roy. When Roy climbs up to the deck above him, it cuts to Roy on his knees about to stand up, and we can see someone moving right near him, at the left of the screen, even though he's alone.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy visit Mrs. Johnson on the 6th floor, they take the elevator near the nurses' station, at the south end of the ER wing, and when they exit the elevator they turn left to room 603. This is completely impossible considering the actual floor plan of the hospital, since in all the exterior shots of the ER it is only 2-storeys.

The Hard Hours - S3-E18

Other mistake: After Dr. Early fixes the squad's engine problem, while Roy and Johnny are driving away, Roy's watch reads 10:30, but when the dispatcher sends them to the leg injury he says that the time out is 11:52. Then at the scene of the football player's leg injury, Roy's watch reads 8:15 and Johnny's watch reads 9:30.

Inferno - S3-E21

Audio problem: When Station 51 is dispatched to the brushfire, we hear Roy tell Johnny, "Holly Hills, isn't that where all the expensive homes are," but we see that Roy's mouth is saying something entirely different.

Zero - S3-E10

Other mistake: When Tommy is in the treatment room drinking chocolate milk, the container of milk has tape wrapped around it, so the brand name would not be visible. Later at the station, when Chet is polishing the table in the kitchen, the spray can he's using has tape wrapped around it as well, for the same reason.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Before climbing up to the man lying on the scaffolding, when Roy and Johnny put the pompier belts around their waists, both belts are buckled so the tongue buckles and carabiner hooks are at their right sides, but both stuntmen are wearing their belts the opposite way in the wide shots. Notice the axe sheaths are upside down on Johnny's and Roy's belts, but the stuntmen's pompier belts are buckled the right way.

Promotion - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: During the structure fire, after the security guard has been carried down the ladder, in the interior shot when Johnny follows, he places his injured right leg out the window first, but in the next exterior shot it's his left leg which is out the window, then it's back to his right leg being first out the window.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Chet go to Rampart to visit Johnny on their day off, Dixie tells them that Johnny's in room 205, but when Chet and Roy walk in the number on the door is 230.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chet flags down the young driver to get help for the traffic accident victims, the driver's side wing mirror is tilted out at a wide angle in the long shot, but in the next closeup the wing mirror has been pushed flat up against the car, so as not to block the actor during the conversation.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on scene at the boating accident, John contacts Rampart, and in the closeup of the base station telephone, we see the old reel-to-reel tape recorder that was used during season 1, behind the old GE Deskon 3-button telephone. In the next shot Rampart's base station is back to normal.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When the stokes with the boating accident victim is being loaded onto the Harbor Patrol boat, Roy's standing behind the boat in the water and Johnny's in the boat with the stokes, but in the next shot they've switched places, Roy's in the boat and Johnny's behind the boat. Others have also switched places between shots.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When 51's guys are standing around Johnny's bed looking at the cat, in the cat's closeups she is facing the locker room, but in the other shots she is facing the opposite way, with the guys behind her.
