Emergency! (1972)

Inferno - S3-E21

Audio problem: In the courtroom, after Roy and John defib the patient who was in full arrest, when John's on the Biophone with Rampart, he says, "We've countershocked 400 watt seconds," but as he continues to say, "Scope now shows...," John's mouth is not in sync with those words.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In the courtroom, when the patient goes into V-fib, in the two wide shots while Roy is defibbing the patient, John's holding a tube of conductive gel (for the paddle electrodes), but in John's closeup when he says, "Hit him again," John's hands are empty.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy walk into the courtroom, Johnny places the drug box on the table with its back facing out, but in the closeups of Johnny and the young lawyer, the drug box is turned the opposite way, with its front facing out.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny walk into the courtroom, Johnny and the young lawyer kneel down beside the patient's right side, but in the patient's closeup Johnny's kneeling on the opposite side of the resuscitator, near the patient's head, where Johnny will walk to a few shots later, when that young lawyer will once again walk over and kneel down.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and Roy are standing near the nurses' station, Johnny admits that he promised to take care of Paula's dog, and when Johnny turns his head toward Dixie and Brackett we can see the base station behind him, and in the next shot when Dixie and Brackett walk over, a clipboard has suddenly appeared between the telephone and Biocom EKG unit.

Mascot - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: After Paula's car door is pulled open, when Roy leans her head back in the shot from behind him, we should be able to see out the right rear window, but the view has been deliberately blacked out from this POV.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Paula's taken in the ambulance, when Roy heads to the wrecked car and pushes the driver's backrest forward revealing Bonnie in the back, we can see that the passenger side door is closed, but in the next shot the passenger side door is wide open.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Johnny's on the Biophone establishing contact with Rampart, there's a closeup of the GE telephone at Rampart's base station, and behind it we can see the tape machine switch is turned to the right, in the 'on' position, but when it cuts to Dixie walking over and responding, the tape machine is not on yet.

Visible crew/equipment: After Engine 51 rolls up to the scene of Paula's car accident, when Captain Hammer stands up in the engine's cab, the reflection of production equipment can be seen on the engine's chrome spotlight.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: On scene at Paula's car accident, her houndstooth blazer is lying over the backrest of the front passenger seat, but when Captain Hammer opens the passenger side door it vanishes, then it continues to reappear, disappear, and change position in following shots.

Mascot - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when Squad 51 rolls up on the car accident scene, in the shot from inside the squad we can see the entire area around the wrecked car, and there's only a utility pole, short wood fencing, and trees. When Roy and John are treating Paula, and then removing her from the car, in the overhead shots as the camera faces the wrecked car and 51's rigs, there's a very large rectangular shadow being cast over the car, which is presumably from a reflector screen facing the front of the car.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Other mistake: When Chet is preparing the lasagna, then tells Johnny that he's preparing 'rutabaga delight' especially for him, the green container of parmesan cheese has tape covering the brand name, though it looks like it's the Kraft brand.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the little boy who received an electric shock is brought into the ER, in the shot from the hallway he's taken into treatment 4, which is beside the nurses' station, but in the next shot from inside the room, we can see treatment 2 on the opposite side of the hallway, which is next door to treatment 4. This means they're actually in treatment 1, not 4.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start, after Station 51 is dispatched to the apartment fire, when a musician asks Captain Stanley for help removing instruments from the burning building, the next shot showing Truck 98 rolling up is footage from 2x13, "Drivers", during the fire at the Atlas Hotel. We can even see the smoke through the Atlas Hotel's windows, and Squad 51 parked across the street. More footage from the Atlas Hotel fire is shown when Engine 16 rolls up. Additional footage from other episodes are shown as well, when we see helmets and rigs bearing company numbers that were not called to this fire.

Trivia: Worth a look. After John sees Morton about the pulled deltoid muscle, when John and Roy leave the ER they pass another paramedic who's bringing in an electric shock victim, and the paramedic makes a crack about John being a little out of shape. As the camera follows the stretcher, pay attention to the background as Roy and John exit, because it looks as if John is giving the finger to flip off that paramedic who made the crack.

Nurse's Wild - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: While Early, Dixie, and Brackett are talking in the hallway about going to lunch, Ellen comes out of the treatment room (opposite receiving) next door to treatment 2 and calls to Dr. Early, but when Early and Ellen walk back into that room, they are now in treatment 3, which is directly opposite from treatment 2.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When 127 hoses down the underside of the overturned trailer, we should be able to see the water spray while John and Roy try to get to the trapped driver in the cab, but we don't even though we hear the audio of the hosing.

Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy visit the woman they assisted in delivery, they go through the ER's double doors opposite receiving, as if heading upstairs to her room, and soon she even comments that the baby was brought up to her from the ER. Then, when the guys leave her room, Roy pushes open the door on the right, and we can see the ER's treatment 5 and the silver cabinets right up the hallway, so we know that Roy and John were actually in the room just off to the side of the nurses' station in the ER.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: When Roy and Johnny are in the radioactive lab, loading the unconscious doctor with severe radioactive poisoning onto the stretcher, note that the unconscious doctor is lifting his own left arm, and moving it onto the stretcher so it's resting beside him properly.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: While Squad 51 leaves the brushfire area with the looter (Tony Dow), when Johnny requests a water drop the helicopter pilot says that he's Copter 2, but the footage we see of the chopper flying overhead is of Copter 14 and Copter 10.
