Troll (1986)

Continuity mistake: Torok the Troll wears a magic silver ring which allows him to appear in the form of Wendy Potter. However after Wendy's mother tells her about the orange juice, when Wendy touches the cold bottle of milk in the fridge she grabs her arm in pain and we can see both of her hands, and she's not wearing that magic ring.

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."

The Nuisance - S5-E24

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.

Isolation - S6-E20

Other mistake: After Engine 51 and Squad 51 are dispatched to "man trapped," while en route to the incident Engine 86 becomes available, so when the dispatcher cancels Engine 51 we hear Captain Stanley respond, "Engine 51," but the subtitles read that Johnny is the one who responds "Engine 51," which is pretty silly since John and Roy are in Squad 51.

Hypochondri-Cap - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: On the roof at the studio, Wally sets up John's gear and anchors his rappelling line onto a single carabiner which is attached directly to the belt support around John's waist. Yet when Johnny flips upside down while rappelling down, in the closeups when Roy joins him, that carabiner is now locked off onto another carabiner, which is attached to John's belt, and both of their locking mechanisms are red. Then when John's on the ground, the carabiner attached to his belt and anchor is entirely silver.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John are at the studio so John can test out Wally's rappelling gear, on the roof John's wearing his medical holster, but Roy is not, but when each rappel down in the wide shots they're both wearing it. Then in their closeups while hanging on their lines, Roy's wearing his medical holster, but Johnny's has vanished, then on the ground Johnny's wearing his and Roy's has vanished.
