Emergency!

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

Other mistake: After Johnny is hit by the car Roy kneels down beside him and shouts "Trauma box!" but the subtitles read, "Code box!"

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Chet's practical joke on Karen, she's quite ticked off, and Roy and Johnny are a bit uncomfortable, and then when Station 51 is dispatched to the unknown type rescue they all head to the apparatus bay. In the next shot when Karen, Roy, and Johnny get into the squad just watch all the actors' faces. First Johnny cracks up, then Roy and Karen, who even put their heads down to hide their laughter, particularly Roy who ducks his head behind the steering wheel. Fun to watch.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Other mistake: After Johnny takes Captain Stanley's BP, when Chet tells the guys, "Animal fat is the root of all evil," and also after John jokes, "How to survive on no meals a day," check out Roy's feet because he's wearing shoes (looks like black sneakers) that are below the ankle, with no socks. Then in a few moments they're all dispatched to the 'possible heart attack' and when they're at the scene, while Roy is sitting with the patient, he's wearing socks and his uniform shoes (their tops are above the ankle) as usual.

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: While Roy is showing Brice the squad, after Brice annoyingly locks Squad 51's side bay door, he asks, "How about the OB box?" but the subtitles read, "How about the OV box?" Then a minute later Brice says, "Let's look at the OB box," and again the subtitles read "OV box."

The Nuisance - S5-E24

Other mistake: When the ambulance arrives and they're loading Johnny onto the ambulance, Captain Stanley says, "Okay, Chet, take the squad..." but the subtitles get both characters wrong, it reads that a "Paramedic" says, "Okay, Chip, take the squad..." There is no Chip.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

Other mistake: Roy uses the Biophone when he tells Brackett the vitals of a woman with cardiac symptoms, and then Johnny uses the landline to tell Brackett that there's "Another victim, female, 8 months pregnant, she's gone into labor." Brackett responds, "The mother's probably had an MI... Any cervix dilation on the daughter?" It is impossible for Brackett to have known that the two women are related, let alone that they're mother and daughter.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Other mistake: When Johnny prepares Chef Michel's recipe, he leaves the casserole dish in the oven while Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire. When he and Roy return, Johnny opens the hot oven door to find it smoking and the dish bubbled over, and even though the oven door is supposedly very hot, Roy places his hand on the inside of that door and actually leans on it like there's absolutely no problem.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: At the chemical plant, when Captain Stanley gets to the roof and realizes they have to shut off the main valve, over the HT he says, "Engine 8, HT 51, shut off the power..., Engine 15 supply Truck 8...," but the weird subtitles read, "Engine 80, Team 51, shut off the power..., Engine 15, Supply Truck 80..." Then a bit later Captain Stanley tells Mike over the HT, "Engine 51, HT 51, charge the line," but the subtitles read, "Engine 51, Team 51, start your line." Then as soon as Mike charges the line, Captain Stanley tells Roy and Chet, "Okay, full fog, full fog...," but again the weird subtitles read, "Okay, hold strong, hold strong."

Other mistake: When Early and Morton are examining Johnny, Early points out Johnny's torso as he says, "Mike, you see this bruise?" but the subtitles read, "Frank, you see this bruise?" A couple of minutes later the subtitles get Mike's name right.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, the anesthesiologist brings the cart with a ventilating unit close to patient, then there are two closeups of Bird's Mark 4 unit and the bellows housing showing inflation and deflation, and on the bellows unit it reads "Animal Anesthesia Ventilator" made by Bird. This is also the same closeup we see of the ventilator unit in 4x18, "Prestidigitation," during the surgery on Brackett's father.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the victim who has a projectile in his heart from a lawn mower, Brackett asks for an EKG strip and there's a closeup of the Datascope monitor, even though the Datascope is not actually in the ER's base station room (it's also still in the squad at this point). Also interesting to note, when Brackett walks out of the base station and tells Early about the heart wound, Early turns the medical chart he's holding at an angle, looks down at it and it appears that he's reading his line from the chart. Then when the ambulance arrives at the scene, the stethoscope is around Johnny's neck, then it's back around Roy's neck as Johnny's lifting the patient, then it's gone from Roy's neck, and then Johnny puts it back around Roy's neck.

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny help free the man whose arm is trapped in the pipe, just as the man stands up we can see the boxes of detergent on the shelf behind him, with their brand names covered with black tape.

One of Those Days - S5-E9

Other mistake: When the dispatcher calls for Squad 51 about an unknown rescue, Roy almost closes the squad's hood on Johnny's head, and when Captain Stanley responds the usual KMG365 with the hand mic, we can see that the mic's cord is dangling down, not even plugged into the base.

Equipment - S5-E4

Other mistake: When the cardiac arrest is first brought into the ER we hear "Let's get him intubated," but the weird subtitles read, "Let's get him elevated."

Equipment - S5-E4

Other mistake: At the construction site, after Johnny administers the epinephrine to the cardiac arrest, 39's paramedic resumes CPR, and when they're lifting the patient onto the stretcher Johnny says, "Stop CPR," but the subtitles read, "Start CPR," which makes no sense since they've been doing CPR all along.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Other mistake: At the end of the episode, when 51's guys are in the kitchen waiting to see the "terrific idea", in the closeup John presses the tape recorder's third white button to play it, and we hear the dispatcher's voice, but in the next shot we continue to hear the dispatcher saying, "1305 Overland Ave, apt C, cross street, Pacific..." despite the fact that we can see all the white buttons are now up, none are actually depressed.

Communications - S5-E13

Other mistake: Brackett has Johnny and Roy in his office to listen to recordings on two cassette tapes - the first of 51's transmission with Rampart, and the second of 49's transmission with Pediatric Clinic. Brackett plays the first tape, pops it out and then plays the second tape. The problem is that when Brackett puts the first cassette tape back in the player, it's been rewound, even though Brackett never actually rewound the tape.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Other mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', as the squad rolls out we can see the Crown engine from the show's first two seasons parked in the apparatus bay, instead of 51's current Ward LaFrance.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the landslide, the engine company get into their turnouts and roll out, but in the next exterior shot as the engine drives past the camera, not only are the guys not in their turnouts, it's too obvious that none are 51's guys, and the one in Chet's jumpseat even leans forward. Presumably they're 127's guys.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is on scene at the landslide, there's a dresser on the grass in front of the house, and when the explosion occurs due to the broken gas main, in the closeups as Johnny dives to the ground there's what looks like a can of gasoline (used for the stunt perhaps) atop that dresser that wasn't there before, and it's also not in the wide shots as Johnny dives down.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Other mistake: After Brackett tries unsuccessfully to get O'Brien on the line to ask about the fish tank, it cuts to an exterior shot of Station 51, and we hear the dispatcher say, "All units responding with Engine 3 cancel," but subtitles read, "Four units with Engine 3 cancelled."

Other mistake: When the man injured in the manhole is brought to treatment 6, Early tells Roy to patch him up for an EKG, but the subtitles read, "Patch one from the EKG," and then Early tells the x-ray technician to do a skull and chest series, but the subtitles read, "Skull and chest searches."

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Station 51 arrives at the structure fire, Captain Stanley tells Mike to get water to their lines (charging the two lines) and then mule the supply line back to the hydrant. When Marco and Chet get the two lines, they head to the house with Captain Stanley and start hosing the fire down with charged lines. A few shots later, we see Mike going to the back of Engine 51, and the two lines that Chet, Marco, and Cap have been using are flat and not even charged yet.

The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

Other mistake: The dispatcher gives the address of "woman trapped on a wire" as "Commercial Studios,1122 Dellini Plaza", and as Engine 51 drives past the front gates, the large sign reads "World Pictures Corp." Additionally, the address of World Pictures Corp is 1731 Carlson, when we see the same footage of Engine 51 driving past the sign in episode "The Exam" in season 6.

The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

Other mistake: Twice during this episode, when they're dispatched to a "woman trapped on a wire" and also to the "train fire", we see Engine 51 heading out with two firemen standing at the back of the engine, and they are Johnny and Roy. This footage is actually from the episode "The Old Engine" in season 3, when they got the new Ward La France engine for Station 51, and since Roy and Johnny were waiting for the previous shift to return with the squad, Captain Stanley told them to jump on the back and go with them on their first run with the new engine.

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.

[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.

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.
