Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the truck fire, as Captain Stanley responds to the dispatcher Roy and Johnny get into the squad, but we see Marco, Mike and Chet head back to the kitchen instead of getting on the engine, then we see both the engine and squad responding to the incident.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Ruthie is wheeled into the ER, Dixie tells the attendants to put her in the treatment room where Dr. Early's waiting, and they wheel her into treatment 2 which has a windowless door, but when they're in the room the door has a window, which means she's in treatment 1, not 2. Plus the fact that both treatment rooms are set up differently.Super Grover
Other mistake: When the woman from the salon is brought into the treatment room she's unconscious, but as they transfer her from the ambulance stretcher to the hospital gurney, she lifts her left arm from under the stretcher bar and then also positions it on the gurney.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 leaves Rampart, in the first interior shot facing Roy as John says, "Yeah, I'll tell ya, when it hits ya... Boy when I met Valerie it hit me," through the back window we can see movement at the back of the squad. But in the shot facing Roy when John says, "So that's that... That's exactly how it is," through that back window we can actually see a crew member's face (sideways), who has a mustache, right behind John's head, as he's riding on the back of the moving squad. It's so funny, have a look.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Deke comes into the ER with the two burned firemen and speaks to John and Roy, the window behind them is on the same side as the ER's receiving entrance. Notice that outside the window there's one of those blue metal shades at the top, which does not exist in the exterior shots of that side of the ER.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Roy, John, and Vic are inside stage 3 trying to outrun Charlene, Roy starts climbing down the first ladder, and we can see equipment moving right beside Roy, then when Roy climbs back up and they find the second ladder, more movement can be seen at the bottom of the screen.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Roy and Vic run out of Stage 3, when Johnny backs up and bends down, we can see Charlene, the bear, on all fours, then in the next shot the bear is walking on her hind legs toward the door, but in the next shot from behind Johnny the bear is still on all fours and further back again.Super Grover
Captain Stanley: How are you and Brice getting along?
Roy: Fine. Fine. We're getting along just fine.
Captain Stanley: Thought for a while there might be a little personality problem.
Roy: No, I can work with just about anybody. I can get along with just about anybody.
Captain Stanley: Glad to hear that.
Roy: Just might have to bust him in the mouth to do it.
Other mistake: After Johnny takes Captain Stanley's BP, when Chet tells the guys, "Animal fat is the root of all evil," and also after John jokes, "How to survive on no meals a day," check out Roy's feet because he's wearing shoes (looks like black sneakers) that are below the ankle, with no socks. Then in a few moments they're all dispatched to the 'possible heart attack' and when they're at the scene, while Roy is sitting with the patient, he's wearing socks and his uniform shoes (their tops are above the ankle) as usual.Super Grover
Character mistake: After Captain Stanley tells the guys about the diet and nutrition study, Cap tells Roy that he and John should go to Oceanside Park for a fire inspection, but later when Johnny's on the HT he tells dispatch to respond Engine 51 to Oceanland Park, not Oceanside Park, and then the dispatcher gives the incident address as Oceanland Park.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of Roy and Johnny at the whale tank, the maintenance guy behind them is standing between the red bleacher seats and purple seats below, but in Roy and Johnny's closeups the guy is standing between the two top purple bleacher seats, then when the whale splashes, it goes back and forth yet again.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is dispatched to the possible heart attack, just as Squad 51 is leaving the apparatus bay and passing the exterior glass doors to Captain Stanley's office, the reflection of the location's array lighting is visible on the glass doors.Super Grover
Other mistake: While Johnny and Roy are with the possible heart attack, they've patched her in for the EKG, and in the base station room Brackett looks at the EKG strip and the unit's monitor, then it cuts to a closeup of the Datascope monitor, even though the Datascope is not actually in the ER's base station room.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Station 51 is dispatched to the possible heart attack, when they arrive at the scene it cuts to the interior shot of the pregnant woman walking to the door, and we can see the shadow of the cameraman moving across the lamp and curtains.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the baby with difficulty breathing, in the wide shot when the squad pulls into the driveway and heads to the front of the house, the cameraman steps out of the shadows on the right side of screen and walks toward the squad (then it cuts to the footage he was shooting), and in the next shot as the moving camera closes in on the squad in front of it, the cameraman's shadow becomes visible on the tree and house.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After inspecting Davey's Dogs, when John and Roy head to the squad discussing how only a total idiot would buy the stand, the reflection of the location's array lighting is visible on the squad's surface, and the reflection of the camera dolly can be seen on the chrome spotlight.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Station 51 is dispatched to the fire, a dumpster fire already put out by Phyllis, when Mike parks the engine, the reflection of crew members are visible on the jumpseat window, and the location's array lighting is visible on the engine's surface.Super Grover
