The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

Other mistake: The dispatcher gives the address of "woman trapped on a wire" as "Commercial Studios,1122 Dellini Plaza", and as Engine 51 drives past the front gates, the large sign reads "World Pictures Corp." Additionally, the address of World Pictures Corp is 1731 Carlson, when we see the same footage of Engine 51 driving past the sign in episode "The Exam" in season 6.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy climbs down the manhole, he leans to the right (the second time), and when he points the flashlight down the tunnel on the right, the moving shadow of camera equipment is visible on the wall. We know it's not Roy's shadow because when he leans back to the left, that shadow is still moving on the tunnel wall.

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny rescue the deputy from the wrecked chopper that sank in the water, they emerge from the water soaked from head to toe, but when they are pulled to the top of the cliff, Johnny and Roy are both completely dry except for a few small wet patches on their shirts.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Factual error: After the car falls off the cliff, Dixie lies unconscious and Roy takes her blood pressure. Roy wraps the cuff around Dixie's arm, then holds the manometer gauge in one hand and squeezes the bulb in his other hand. The stethoscope remains untouched around his neck, even though it's necessary to place the stethoscope bell on her brachial artery (inside of the elbow) in order to actually measure her blood pressure.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: Before the car goes over the cliff, Dixie says that the woman has a fractured radius and ulna (forearm), and then at the hospital when Dr. Brackett talks to Dixie he says the same thing, but when Dr. Early walks into Brackett's office, he says "The woman with the busted fibula (lower leg), she's coming out of shock now."

The Convention - S7-E4

Other mistake: When Pete shows Laurie the newspaper, in the closeup of the article about Gail and Laurie entitled "women paramedics save shooting victims", the paragraphs under and around the title are repeated, and have nothing to do with the title.

Limelight - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the staff lounge waiting for Dr. Morton, Johnny's holding the newspaper's sports page, and in the page's close-up, there is a large picture of Brice centered between two columns of articles. However, when Johnny's talking to Roy and Dr. Morton, that page is entirely different even though he hasn't turned the page.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: The day after the awful fish dinner, when the Merkles visit the station again, Roy is holding a can of whipped cream in his right hand in the side shots, but in the shot facing him he's holding a carton of milk.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Brice are taking vitals of the possible heart attack, depending on the angle of the shot, the outlines of the mic transmitters can be seen on the backs of Roy's and Brice's shirts.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is hit by the car, the open drug box is lying on the ground right-side up in the first shot, then upside down in the second shot.

Grateful - S5-E21

Deliberate mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on Copter 10, just after dispatch tells them that the run is cancelled, there is a shot of Copter 10 turning around which is a flipped shot - note the backwards 10 on the tail.

The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

Other mistake: Twice during this episode, when they're dispatched to a "woman trapped on a wire" and also to the "train fire", we see Engine 51 heading out with two firemen standing at the back of the engine, and they are Johnny and Roy. This footage is actually from the episode "The Old Engine" in season 3, when they got the new Ward La France engine for Station 51, and since Roy and Johnny were waiting for the previous shift to return with the squad, Captain Stanley told them to jump on the back and go with them on their first run with the new engine.

Upward and Onward - S6-E22

Other mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and the cardiac patient are stuck in the stalled elevator with smoke in the shaft, Captain Stanley notifies dispatch that he wants a full first-alarm assignment, and we then see Engine 8 pulling out of their bay and heading to their run. The problem here is that this shot of Engine 8 is from the episode "Equipment" in season 5, when Johnny was doing overtime with Station 8, and we can actually see Johnny sitting on Engine 8 as it drives by.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Other mistake: At the fire in the freight yard, Captain Stanley asks the dispatcher to respond a second-alarm assignment, and then we see Engine 8 pulling out of their apparatus bay and driving down the street. The problem is that this particular shot of Engine 8 is from season 5, episode "Equipment", when Johnny was doing some overtime at Station 8, and we can actually see Johnny sitting on Engine 8.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are driving to the hamburger stand and stop to have a look at the squad's fanbelt, in the interior shots Roy is wearing his watch while driving, but when he exits the squad the watch has vanished.

[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?
