Continuity mistake: After 17's Captain Harmell has fallen through the warehouse roof, when Roy wraps the tape around Harmell's leg splint, the entire splint is covered by tape when they lift him up the ladder, but when Harmell is carried out of the snorkel, there is much less tape - it's wrapped around the splint only 5-6 times.Super Grover
Character mistake: When Dr. Brackett talks to the attempted suicide's boyfriend, he tells Brackett that the girl has already attempted suicide a total of three times, and the first time she was hospitalized, but a minute later when Dr. Morton reads the hospital records and tells Brackett that the girl attempted suicide the previous year and was hospitalized, Brackett then tells Morton that her boyfriend said that she tried it three additional times. It was just a minute earlier that the boyfriend said two additional times, not three.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny's leaning through the windshield of the truck carrying dynamite, using the jaws to free the driver, Marco's behind Johnny with the hose fogging them down, and Johnny's clothes get soaked, but in the closeup as Johnny pulls the driver from his seat, Johnny's shirt is completely dry.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: During the structure fire, after Roy and John climb out onto the ledge and the fire flashes in the exterior shots, the next interior shots we see shows stacked boxes falling as the fire flashes through the doors. The interior shots are from episode 3x7, "Promotion", during the structure fire, after the security guard is taken down the ladder. We can even see a crew member's hand pushing a lower box which causes them all to fall.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny is bending down while checking on Boot, who's hiding under the bed again, and also as he and Roy walk out of the dorm when Station 51 is dispatched to the 'stove fire', the outline of the lav mic transmitter is visible on the back of Johnny's shirt.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the woman whose hair is caught in the meat grinder, time out is 12:34, and right after that quick run they stop by Rampart. Back at the station, after Chet mentions that when they started their shift that morning Boot was fine, they're all dispatched to the gasoline tanker traffic accident, and the time out is 9:18 in the AM. Then the next run Squad 51 responds to is the woman caught in the mixer, and the time out is 15:54.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: During the rescue of the man trapped in the submerged car, when 110's Captain hands John and Roy (in the water) the special cave-in gear's air hose, then when he opens the O2 valve and also when he revs up the jaws, we see that the boat's port side has a taught line tying it off at the stern in the closeups (seen from the boat's deck) to prevent it moving, but in the long shots there is no line.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Epps begs Dr. Morton to tell her the truth about her son's condition, the stethoscope is hanging around Morton's neck with the headset on his left side and the chestpiece on his right side, but then it flips to the opposite way, and then back again, between shots.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: During the rescue of the two boys on the tower, a few shots after Chet starts climbing the stairs, there's a long shot looking up at Roy and John, and we can see Chet at the last set of stairs at the bottom left of the screen, and a few shots later from the same long angle, we see Chet reach the top. However, quite a few shots later, after the old man comments about job security, we see Chet again, but he's nowhere near the top yet.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy must climb the tower to rescue the two boys, they both buckle the pompier belts around their waists with the large carabiner hooks at their left sides and walk towards the tower, but in the next shot Johnny's belt is on the opposite way, at his right, as they start to climb the stairs. Then the life belt flips back to the way it was originally.Super Grover
Other mistake: During the structure fire at the Atlas Hotel, when Roy and John are with the unconscious man being given proper CPR by civilians, it is too painfully apparent that the man giving rescue breaths is just leaning over the man's face, nowhere near the victim's mouth, particularly after Marco and Chet drop off the stokes.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: After Brackett has played the tape of 110's rescue for Roy and Johnny, when they get into the squad, the usually highly reflective chrome surface of the driver's side spotlight has been sprayed with a 'dulling spray', to temporarily dull the finish for this shot.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Brackett's on the line with Johnny, who's with the quarterback on the field, Brackett has the third button (out of five) pressed to record the conversation on the tape machine. However, in episode 2x5, "Peace Pipe", Brackett presses two buttons - the third and fifth, when Squad 51 is at the scene of the drunk driver's accident, and in 2x10, "Dinner Date", Dixie presses the second button to record, when Squad 51 is with the little girl whose arm is stuck in the pool drain.Super Grover
