To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny leave Rampart and are heading back in the squad, about 16:40 minutes in, as they are discussing whether Roy has told his wife about house hunting, you can see two signs on the ceiling of the squad's cab. The signs say 'Emergency Saturday 8PM Rehearsal Mark VI Prod'. Possibly they are magnetic signs for the squad doors so people don't mistake the squad for a real fire department vehicle? (00:16:20)

As she's wheeled into treatment 1, the camera faces Johnny so we can see up the hallway behind him, and the entire admitting desk and waiting area are all blacked out, and there are two men, one of which (possibly the director) is sitting on a chair facing up the hallway where Johnny is and the scene is taking place.
