Visible crew/equipment: Just after Herbert leaves the station in the morning, dispatch sounds the alarms, and when Roy and John are in the squad while the dispatcher begins talking, there are nice reflections of the camera, reflector screen (in the background), and crew members/cameraman who move around, that are visible on the surface of the spotlight. Additionally, the shadow of the boom/mic is perfectly visible on the windshield as it moves down.Super Grover
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.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny is writing the 'for sale' sign about his Land Rover, in the wide shot the two phone numbers begin with "853" and "352", but in the closeup a piece of paper has been glued over the phone numbers, and the new numbers now begin with "321" and "749."Super Grover
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.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Johnny, Roy, and Vic try to outrun Charlene inside Stage 3, after heading down the ladder, when Roy opens the door to find Charlene standing there, Johnny's holding the red extinguisher in his right hand and the nozzle in his left hand, but next shot they've switched hands.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are heading to the parade in the old engine, and get sidetracked dealing with a fire rescue, they are wearing the old-style shirts with a ten-button, square bottom bib front, with five buttons on each side. When Captain Stanley laughs at them on the roof, their shirt style differs in the close-up, it's now a nine-button, pointy bottom bib, with four buttons on each side and one button at the bottom point.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is on scene at the vehicle accident in the canyon, after Marco uses a crowbar to free the driver of the station wagon and he pulls the driver out, a crew member standing behind the FX 6-ft wind machine fan (to blow smoke) are visible in the background beside the other overturned car. As an aside, in the previous and following shots that crew member and wind machine fan are in the same spot where Chet and Johnny supposedly are.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are trying to get the basketball player (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) out of the car, and when Roy exits the car to get equipment, the outlines of the mic transmitters and wires are visible on the back, left side of Johnny's shirt, and back, right side of Roy's shirt.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Art, the screenwriter, goes on his first ride-along with Squad 51, just as Art rambles on about the fire truck on its mission of mercy going 80 miles an hour, two shadows of mic/camera equipment are visible on the left and right side of Squad 51's hood. What's amusing is that a moment prior to this, Art actually says that they could mount a camera right on the hood of the truck, when they make the film about paramedics.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Johnny and the attendants exit the ambulance with Dora, the pregnant woman, the ambulance is empty and the drug box is on the seat with the Biophone on the floor beside the seat, but in the next shot as the gurney is wheeled inside, the drug box is now on the floor between the Biophone and seat.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When 51's guys go down into the tank to try and subdue Al, the big guy who has a chemically induced psychosis, the ring Al was wearing on his left hand in the overhead shots is gone, but when Al shakes Chet upside-down in the closeups the large ring is back, but then it vanishes again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is at the scene of the oil well eruption, underneath a house which was built atop an abandoned oil field, just after Johnny tells Roy that he thinks the whole foundation is slipping, it cuts to a shot of the front porch as one of the porch columns (and part of another) breaks and falls. However, when the guys finally free the trapped man and carry him out, all the columns are upright once again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are treating the officer, while hiding between the bakery truck and car, the sniper fires at them which leaves multiple bullet holes on the side of the truck. However, when Vince talks to the Sergeant on the handie-talkie and then fires the tear gas, all the bullet holes on the truck are gone, but they soon reappear.Super Grover
