Emergency!

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex fire, after Johnny is knocked unconscious by the explosion, when the Pasadena fireman finds him and has to lift him up, it's funny how even though Johnny's unconscious we can see that he actually helps to stand himself up, so the fireman can lift him up and carry him out.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex where the jet fighter had crashed there's an explosion, and when one of the firefighters becomes engulfed in flames his helmet falls off, and the special fireproof headpiece that the stuntman is wearing is visible.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Squad 51 speeding toward their destination, and when the camera cuts to the woman in front of the market, she's waving her arms to the squad somewhere in the distance. But notice that while Rosa is looking to her left and waving, we can see Squad 51's reflection in the window (with the liquor bottles), as they are parked right there, just off-screen waiting for their cue to "speedily" pull up.

Body Language - S3-E12

Revealing mistake: After the two drivers from the traffic accident walk off holding hands, and Johnny tells Roy what happened with Barbara, while Roy explains body language to Johnny, we can see the white tape with "Kevin" inside Roy's helmet.

Details - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 leaves Rampart, in the first interior shot facing Roy as John says, "Yeah, I'll tell ya, when it hits ya... Boy when I met Valerie it hit me," through the back window we can see movement at the back of the squad. But in the shot facing Roy when John says, "So that's that... That's exactly how it is," through that back window we can actually see a crew member's face (sideways), who has a mustache, right behind John's head, as he's riding on the back of the moving squad. It's so funny, have a look.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: When Johnny and Roy are crawling on the balcony, during the fire at the apartment complex, when they pass under a window we can see the FX tubes from which the flames shoot out.

School Days - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: While 51's on scene at the traffic accident involving a car that broadsided an ambulance, when Chet opens the back door of the overturned ambulance the license plate reads "99923U" but the "U" is lopsided and pushed to the edge of the plate, which makes it obvious that it's a magnetized letter. It's positioned properly in following shots.

Honest - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: When Captain Stanley runs into the burning house looking for Johnny, the floor beside the stairs (under the table) is visible behind him, and there is no rug only wall-to-wall carpet, but when Johnny and Toby fall from the stairs, that area of floor is covered in a rug raised up like a platform, covering the crash mat for the stunt, then the rug vanishes when the guys get Johnny and Toby.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to "traffic accident with injuries," when they're on scene at the plant with the injured tanker driver, pay particular attention to the background behind Engine 51 while Roy is on the Biophone with Rampart. When Brackett says, "51, can you give me any more information," we can actually see Station 51 aka 127, directly behind Roy.

Hypochondri-Cap - S6-E23

Revealing mistake: After Johnny's line gets snarled while testing Wally's equipment at the studio, when Roy lowers himself on his own line wearing his lifebelt, we can see the added carabiners that are attached to the lifebelt which go down into Roy's pants, and are presumably attached to the extra support the actor is wearing under his pants.

Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Revealing mistake: At World Picture Corp, when John and the guy with the broken clavicle are lowered from the overhead joists they're both wearing lifebelts buckled around their waists. The problem is that once they reach the ground, we can see the additional carabiner attached to John's lifebelt, which is also attached to extra green support protruding from under John's shirt. We can also see the victim's additional carabiner going under his flannel shirt. While Roy is on the line with Rampart, when John removes the victim's lifebelt, the extra carabiner is still protruding from under the victim's shirt and John places his hand over it. (00:27:00)

The Stewardess - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: After Johnny joins Roy in the ambulance and the patient flatlines they continue to Rampart, and when Brackett asks 51 for a strip, if we look out the window that's beside Johnny, we can see GlamourTrams in the distance. And when Roy says, "Isopeterenol drip, 10-4," we can see GlamourTrams right outside the window. They are driving around Universal's lot while shooting the footage inside the ambulance.

Equipment - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: After the MI patient from the construction site is brought to treatment 1, when Early uses the laryngoscope for an endotracheal intubation, we can see that he merely places the laryngoscope at the side of the man's face, especially since we can still see the entire distal end beside the man's neck.

Computer Terror - S6-E9

Revealing mistake: When John and Roy reach the man lying near the pool with a back injury, while Thadeus keeps gnawing and grabbing at Roy's pant leg, we see the extra material that Roy has under the pants (over his socks) to prevent the dog from accidentally harming his legs.

Camera Bug - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: When they wheel the stretcher with the unconscious teenager from the school fire into treatment 3, the stretcher is pushed up against the ER's gurney, and when the teen's right arm gets caught between the stretcher and gurney, the supposedly unconscious teen moves his arm up out of the way. Then he lifts his left hand when the attendant removes the blanket.

Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: After rescuing the burn victim from the boat's explosion, Johnny and Roy are at the back of the camper with the victim, while the victim's wife drives the camper to the clinic, but when they arrive at the clinic the camper hasn't even stopped yet, and we can see the woman's legs at the side of the camper, waiting for her cue to come rushing to the camper's rear door when her husband is brought out.

Bottom Line - S6-E17

Revealing mistake: While the guys are eating chilli at the table, when Station 51 is dispatched to 'man down', notice that when they're at the scene, both paramedics are wearing their jackets and Johnny is wearing his helmet. We never see Johnny's face in any of the wide shots, because the entire time it's the double with Roy. We only see Johnny alone in a few closeups, pickup shots which were filmed later, and we can see the style of the houses in the closeups do not resemble the houses in the other shots. The real Johnny is back, once they reach the hospital.

Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the gas explosion at the cafeteria, during the actual rescue the four firemen we see in closeup in the cafeteria are supposed to be Roy, Johnny, Chet, and Marco, but it's really odd that all are the doubles, very obvious in the closeups. There's little dialogue during this scene, which was dubbed later in ADR.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: When the critical boy who ingested the ant poison is being wheeled into the ER's treatment 3, we can see Johnny laughing, and obviously since absolutely nothing about the situation is funny, we know it's Randolph Mantooth just cutting up during the take.

Fuzz Lady - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: After Station 51 reaches the burning house, when Engine 210 rolls up and lays out a supply line, as the camera zooms in to the back of Engine 210, we can see the large, red, rectangular material that is adhered to the engine with the number 210 printed on it.

Quotes

[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?

Mistakes

When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.

Trivia

In addition to Randolph Mantooth's brother Donald appearing in this episode, while Roy and John are in Mrs. Johnson's apartment, when Roy's telling John some of the plants' names, John picks up a plant from the table and asks Roy what its name is. And when Roy answers, "Sadie", John smiles at the plant and says, "Hey, Sadie, how you doing?" Sadie is Mantooth's mother's name.
