Continuity mistake: When Brackett asks Early and Morton to assist with the examination of the hallucinating veteran, in the shot from the hallway the doctors walk into treatment 1, its door has no window, but when it cuts to the shot from inside the room, its door has a window, which means they're all in treatment 2 or 3, not 1.

Continuity mistake: During the structure fire at Kiddytime Toy Factory, when the man is downed by an electrical shock, Johnny pulls out the defibrillator and Biophone from the squad, and in Johnny's closeups with the Datascope we can see that its center knob on the right is missing, but in the Datascope's closeups the knob is back.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: After leaving the football player who kicked in his TV screen, as Roy and John put the gear back in the squad, we see the old blue set of the Datascope 850 monitor and defibrillator, and not their current Datascope M/D2 white case. The last time the blue two-piece unit is even seen in the squad is in 4x13, "Parade", and the first time the white unit is used is in 4x15, "Transition", and it's then used in all following episodes. This scene was a prior taping, that was inserted into this end of the season episode.

Continuity mistake: Roy and Joanne are going to be on a TV quiz show. When the guys are eating soup and sandwiches, Captain Stanley asks Roy, "You nervous about being on the tube tonight?" However, Roy didn't do the quiz show that night, because later we see they're on their next shift, and Roy is getting into his uniform when Johnny says "Tonight's the big night," and Roy tells him that Dwyer will do the rest of his shift when he leaves early.

When Roy puts her over his shoulder and starts walking out the coat is not over her, but when he gets to the balcony she's covered by the coat, yet when the Pasadena fireman goes back for John, that coat is still lying on the floor.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Brackett is first on the line with the vet, there's a closeup of Early checking the goat's heartbeat and we see the baby goat has been intubated. Brackett informs the vet of the goat's heart condition, so the vet tells Brackett to mask him with halothane and intubate. Then a minute goes by before the vet says that they should have him intubated by now, and when Brackett gets back on the line he says that the animal's intubated, even though we saw the animal already intubated in the closeup right at the start.

[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.
