Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Captain Stanley are rescuing the people trapped inside Olive View Hospital, they are wearing distinctively marked SCBA tanks on their backs, and when all three firemen exit the doorway, Cap is wearing an entirely different tank, and the tanks that Johnny and Roy are wearing have been switched. Then when Johnny jumps off Engine 82, his tank differs again, and when he walks over to the Battalion Chief it's changed yet again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: During the fire at Rampart's lab building 8K, when Roy and Johnny are placing the salvage covers on important records, Johnny is wearing the SCBA tank with the two red stickers and Roy's tank has a large arrow sticker, but when they exit the building their tanks have switched.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny calls in to Rampart, Brackett answers and presses the two buttons to record the conversation, then tells Johnny to standby leaving the two buttons depressed, while the drunk driver is brought in. In the next shot, a closeup of Johnny, Brackett tells 51 to go ahead, and in the following shots Brackett continues to listen to Johnny, but none of the buttons are depressed on the tape machine to record the conversation. Then when Brackett gets off the line, he actually presses the tape machine's off button, as if the buttons had been depressed and the conversation recorded.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Brackett asks Early to see the patient (Jamie Farr) who belongs to an occult group and has no function in his right arm, Brackett's wearing a blue/white striped tie, Early's wearing a red/blue striped tie, and Dixie's wearing a uniform dress. However, in the previous and following shots, Brackett's wearing a blue/red/gold patterned tie, Early's wearing a solid black tie, and Dixie's wearing a 2-pc nursing uniform with pants.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: During this episode, treatment 4 and treatment 2 keep switching places, between being located beside the nurses' station or being located near the ER entrance. For instance, when Johnny is on the line telling Rampart that Dr. Knott doesn't want to come in, treatment 2 is by the nurses' station, but when Roy ribs Johnny about his sex fantasies, treatment 2 is near the entrance. Quite fun to try and keep track of the repeated switching.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Kelly and Gage have at it about the portrayal of Native Americans in film, DeSoto quips, "What are you picking on me for?" as he faces Gage in front of him. Gage then walks to the other side of the table and after he says, "We call that white man royalty syndrome," he puts his arm around Kelly, standing beside him. We are then shown DeSoto's reaction shot, who still faces Gage in the same direction as his earlier quip, and we also see Kelly behind him, but no Gage.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Before being shot at, when Gage and DeSoto climb up to the scaffolding, Gage lifts the man's head to rest on the scaffolding and stays that way in each of the following close-ups, but in the following four wideshots his head still hangs over the side.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the boy who is trapped on the crane, Johnny buckles the life belt around the boy's waist, and in the following shots the belt's direction flips around to the opposite way repeatedly. Note its stitched leather and tongue buckles.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Having trouble sleeping, Roy gets up in the middle of the night at the station, and when he puts on his turnout trousers his right suspender becomes unfastened at the front, and hangs down the back of his leg when he walks into the bathroom. However, in the next shot as he enters the bathroom the suspender is properly fastened.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When the paramedics and the rest of the firemen gather round the failed pacemaker patient, their positions change and in DeSoto's close-ups the Captain isn't seen (for the camera angle's sake), although in other shots he's right beside Gage. As an aside, note when Captain Stanley first first gets off the engine and trips in the background.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When DeSoto joins Gage at the kitchen table they discuss Gage's bright idea of rodeos. In all the shots facing DeSoto his hands are clasped together with the coffee cup on the table, but in all the shots facing his partner, he's holding the cup of coffee. The magazine ends up under DeSoto's arms between shots as well.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Gage and DeSoto arrive at the apartment complex, home to the guy trapped in the couch. They park the vehicle and walk on the gated balcony to the apartment. In the exterior shot, when they enter the doorway the inside wall to their left is bare and the corner of the balcony's iron gate is to the doorway's left. Next interior shot, now there is a large painting on that previously bare wall and the iron gate is directly in front of the door. When they leave, their vehicle is farther away, positioned differently.Super Grover
