Emergency!

The Inspection - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: During Roy and Johnny's rescue of the sky diver, the stuntmen are not wearing the fire department uniform shoes, they are wearing different shoes, and Roy's watch differs as well.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When DeSoto unbuttons the police officer's shirt, one of the clear, round, self-adhesive pads is already on his chest, before DeSoto places any of the ECG electrodes.

Loose Ends - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When the police officer has chest pains, DeSoto places the ECG electrode discs onto his chest. In the close-ups, the right disc has a black lead head, but otherwise the right disc has a white lead head.

Involvement - S5-E19

Revealing mistake: The former head nurse is supposed to be unconscious when she's picked up from the couch. Yet she puts her hand up on a shoulder when being carried out.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Other mistake: When Chet Kelly breaks his glass that he was drying in the first shot after showing Station 51, Captain Hammer is on the phone and begins walking to Chet when he groans after breaking the glass. Then it switches to another shot where Marco Lopez yells "Medic!", and Captain Hammer reaches Chet. After that it switches to a shot where John Gage and Roy DeSoto walk over to Chet and the angle goes wide. At this point Captain Hammer hangs up the phone again and begins to walk over to Chet again. When it switches to the shot where Johnny and Roy reach Chet, Hammer is already there like he was when Marco yells for Johnny and Roy. No one else, like Mike Stoker, does this. (00:00:05)

Show Biz - S2-E3

Other mistake: During the rescue at the studio, when Roy tells Marco and Chet that they need to latch up the wagon before it pulls the stuntman over the falls, we hear the dispatcher say, "Copter 10, respond with Engine 69," but the subtitles read, "Trucker 10, respond..." There is no such thing as Trucker 10.

Helpful - S2-E12

Other mistake: While 51's guys are at the accident scene by the freeway on-ramp, when Roy's standing on the ladder and says the car door's jammed, Captain Stanley tells Chet and Marco to get the Porta Power, but subtitles read "Jack, Marco, we need the Porta Power," even though there's no character named Jack.

Boot - S2-E19

Other mistake: After Marco offers Boot the ground beef while the guys are trying to figure out what's wrong with the dog, the tones drop and we hear the dispatcher say, "Station 51, Engine 95, Foam 27," but the subtitles read "Engine 95, Phone 27."

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Dixie goes to the waiting room to get Pete Barlowe so she can bring him to see Brackett, we see Carol, the nurse with black hair, working behind the admitting desk, but in the next shot Carol is in the treatment room with Brackett and Pete's wife.

Above and Beyond... Nearly - S5-E20

Other mistake: After Dixie gets the call from the dental clinic about the possible MI, she and Brackett take the elevator located at the nurses' station and head up to the dental clinic on the third floor. Problem is that the ER is only a 2-storey building, so that is quite impossible.

The Lighter-Than-Air Man - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Crockett leaves Medford's room with the glass that Medford drank from, there's a mirror over the sink, and in the mirror's reflection we can see the camera's moving shadow on the wall, right beside Crockett's reflection.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Other mistake: When the woman from the salon is brought into the treatment room she's unconscious, but as they transfer her from the ambulance stretcher to the hospital gurney, she lifts her left arm from under the stretcher bar and then also positions it on the gurney.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Other mistake: While Johnny and Roy are with the possible heart attack, they've patched her in for the EKG, and in the base station room Brackett looks at the EKG strip and the unit's monitor, then it cuts to a closeup of the Datascope monitor, even though the Datascope is not actually in the ER's base station room.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: At the scene of the vehicle accident, with a raging fire going on, the Chief communicates over the HT with Copter 10, and when Copter 10 arrives and makes the water drop, it is actually Copter 14 we see in all the shots.

Bottom Line - S6-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When the guy walks into the ER with the white phosphorous burn, the outline of the lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the back of Dixie's uniform.

Audio problem: After the rescue at the refinery fire, while they load the ambulance, when Roy and John are being thanked the man's mouth movements are not in sync with what we hear.

Floor Brigade - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When they bring the Hermit into the ER, Brackett tells them to take him to treatment 4 and he's wheeled there, but in the shot from inside the treatment room we see that he's actually inside treatment 1.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny finds the looter's leather bag with the stolen jewelry, the bag's large front flap goes from being flipped open facing Johnny to the opposite way, between shots.

Botulism - S1-E3

Other mistake: After Roy has found the location of the boy trapped in the collapsed building, Captain Hammer gets on the handy-talkie and says "Engine 51, Stoker," but oddly enough the subtitles read, "Agent 51, Stoker."
