Emergency! (1972)

Camera Bug - S4-E10

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, when Johnny tells the guys that he sold one of his photographs for $25, Chet claims the money is his and points to everyone in the photo, noting that Captain Stanley, Marco, Mike, Roy and Johnny are all in the photo but Chet's not, which means he's the one who actually used the camera and snapped the photo. However, the itty bitty problem here is that earlier in the episode, during the rescue, we can see that after Marco heads up the hill that it's actually Chet who's with Mike, Johnny, and Roy carrying the victim up the side of the hill, alongside Captain Stanley. So the only one who could have really taken that photograph was Marco, which completely contradicts the whole bit at the end.

Hypochondri-Cap - S6-E23

Roy: Well, what did your doctor say?
Captain Stanley: Well, actually, I haven't talked to a doctor yet.
Roy: Then how do you know it's arthritis?
Captain Stanley: What else could I have?
Roy: I don't know, but instead of expecting the worst, you might just try to get the facts. Let me call Dr. Brackett. I'll arrange an examination.
Captain Stanley: No, no, no!
Roy: What do you mean, no? Why not?
Captain Stanley: I can't leave here. I'm on duty.
Roy: I'll make the appointment for tomorrow.
Captain Stanley: No, I don't want to impose on Dr. Brackett.
Roy: You're not gonna impose on Dr. Brackett. That's his job. That's why I'm giving him a call.
Captain Stanley: No. Look, Roy, look. What if it isn't arthritis? Then I'd feel silly bothering him.
Roy: If it is arthritis, wouldn't you like to know about it?
Captain Stanley: That's hard news to take.
Roy: Well, you've already given yourself the worst possible news.
Captain Stanley: Yeah, but I could be wrong.
Roy: Look, wouldn't you like to know one way or another? At least you'll stop worrying yourself to death over it.
Captain Stanley: You'd worry too, if you had arthritis.
Roy: Maybe you don't!
Captain Stanley: Then why see a doctor?

Decision - S2-E1

Dr. Early: You chewed out a paramedic the other day.
Dr. Sunderland: [Sighs.] Oh, that.
Dixie: And he's thinking of quitting. Doctor, he takes care of people in places that would curl your hair. When was the last time you risked your life for a patient? Well, they do it with some regularity. Doctor, you were 10 miles out of line.

Big Hero 6 (2014)

Trivia: Don't miss the cute scene after the roll of the credits.

Super Grover Premium member

Trivia: After Lt. Commander Queeg's curt briefing with senior officers he assigns orders to Ensign Keith regarding sailors' shirttails, hair length, and facial hair, and when Queeg leaves them Ensign Keith says, "Well, he's certainly Navy," and Lieutenant Keefer responds, "Yeah, so was Captain Bligh." This foreshadows the events to come, as it alludes to 1789's mutiny aboard the HMS Bounty of The Royal Navy, against its captain, William Bligh.

The Lost Girls - S10-E7

Continuity mistake: Near the start, when Ray is showing the photograph of Madeline with the security guard to passersby asking if they've seen her and also when he shows it to Nick, we can see the photo Ray is holding out in the wide shots, but in the two closeups of the photograph it's actually a different photo. Then later, when Ray shows the photo to Madeline's mother it's the same as the one from the closeup earlier.

The Promise - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode the date "October 23, 2003" appears onscreen, which is the night of the party where Laurie Dunne died.

Proof - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cy sneaks into the house with the key under the mat, in the bedroom he picks up the triple gold frame with two photos of Matt with Lyla and one photo of young Lyla in the blue dress in the center frame, then he holds it to his face and places it back on the right side of the dresser. However, after Cy hears Lyla coming into the house, when she sees the underwear on the bedroom floor the frame on the right side of the dresser is now a double wood frame with only one of the same photos seen earlier.

That Time of Year - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy rappel down the cliff with the downed hang gliders, both of their lifebelts are buckled going from their left to right sides, but in Johnny's first closeups when he's with the second victim, Johnny's lifebelt is on the opposite way, note that it's buckled going from his right to left. Then once the glider falls Johnny's belt is on the original way.

Character mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the heatstroke victim in the polar bear costume, they're on different sides of the victim when Roy says, "Twitching here in both arms," and Johnny looks at her left arm and responds, "Yeah, the same thing over here too." And then it happens again, when Roy says, "Got some heavy spasms in these arms," and Johnny responds, "Yeah, same thing over here."

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy rappel down the cliff to the downed police traffic helicopter, Johnny gets on the HT and says, "All right, Cap, this is HT 51..." but the subtitles actually read, "Hi, Cap, this is HE 51..." Then when they reach the chopper, Johnny says, "There it goes," and Roy says, "Okay, I'll take this side," but the subtitles reverse who says both lines.

Show Biz - S2-E3

Other mistake: During the rescue at the studio, when Roy tells Marco and Chet that they need to latch up the wagon before it pulls the stuntman over the falls, we hear the dispatcher say, "Copter 10, respond with Engine 69," but the subtitles read, "Trucker 10, respond..." There is no such thing as Trucker 10.

Continuity mistake: When Engine 51 rolls up to the house with the fire in the toilet and then also at the hydrant that Roy and Johnny lock off, Engine 51's license plate reads 110856 (different engine). However, right after Chet proposes a treaty, when Station 51 is dispatched to the "construction accident," just as the front bay door opens in the shot from inside the apparatus bay, Engine 51's plate reads 180174.

Other mistake: When John and Roy are up on the scaffold with the injured man during the sniper fire, from the time they unfurl the large tarp and tie it off to the beams the sniper fires zero shots at them, zip, but later at the station Chet asks John, in all seriousness, if he got a good look at the tarp before they left, and tells him that the tarp looked like Swiss cheese due to the sniper fire.
