Emergency! (1972)

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: When Roy and Johnny are at the nurses' station with Dix, Roy decides to deliver the plant that was left for Mrs. Johnson so he and Johnny get into the elevator, and when Roy says, "Six," the floor indicator light on the control panel turns itself on before Johnny even presses the 6th floor button. That light would not turn on if someone up on the 6th floor pressed for the elevator.

Audit - S2-E21

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the baby who's sleeping in the back seat of the locked car John says, "The roof is hot, I think the heat might have built up inside," and the bystander says, "Lord knows how long he's been lying in there broiling in the sun," but what's funny is that they're all wearing winter coats and jackets.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Roy opens the door to Mrs. Johnson's apartment and he and Johnny walk in, the shadow of production equipment (looks like a reflector screen on a tripod) can be seen on the wall behind them.

Emergency! (1972)

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: In the first shot as the engine and squad roll up to the winery fire, the entire trailer with the wood barrels is engulfed in flames with huge plumes of black smoke, but when it cuts to the next shot the trailer and barrels are fine, and there's only a very small fire burning on the ground while Marco pulls the hose off the engine, before the explosion.

I'll Fix It - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are under the house with the oil eruption trying to free the trapped man, they get covered in black oil and mud even though they're wearing turnout coats. It drips down their necks and their pants are soaked with it. When they get to Rampart with the victim, Roy says that he and John should get washed up, but when they talk to Dixie they haven't just washed up, their clothes are now impossibly spotless.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are working on the guy who fell from the horse, since Roy's hands are busy he has the IV line dangling from his mouth before setting up the patient's IV, and in wide shots the cannula is dangling at the left side of his mouth, but in closeups the IV line and cannula have switched sides.
