The Promise - S3-E11

Other mistake: At the very end, when Roy is cleaning the windshield while John's fiddling with the squad’s radio mic, the spray can on the hood of the squad has tape covering the brand name.

Understanding - S3-E13

Other mistake: When Dixie's on the phone with the suicide attempt, Dixie tells her the date of her own birthday, hoping to get the caller's birthday in return. Then when the caller tells Dixie that the month of her birth is February, while Brackett's listening, they don't contact Early who's with the senior data analyst with that crucial information to help narrow down her identity faster, which was the whole point of Dixie trying to get that information from her.

Understanding - S3-E13

Other mistake: During the fire at the horse ranch, when Engine 40 rolls up we can see that the engine company's number is covered atop the cab, and the large, red rectangular vinyl material that's adhered to the back of the engine with nothing on it. Presumably covering the real engine company's number.

I'll Fix It - S4-E2

Deliberate mistake: After Roy and Johnny rescue the man trapped under his house, when the ambulance reaches Rampart, in the shot from inside the ambulance when Roy follows the stretcher out, he stops at the receiving doors and waits for John, who just arrived in the squad, and in this semi-closeup, it's odd and very apparent that it's not actually Randolph Mantooth, it's his double meeting Roy at the door.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: While John's in the ambulance with the boy who ingested the poison, after John inserts the esophageal airway and uses the ambu-bag, just as John says, "Real good," if we look out the window behind the attendant, we can see Universal's GlamourTrams (a set of three trams) driving by in the distance. The footage inside the ambulance was shot while the ambulance drove around Universal's lots.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to 'man down' and realize it's Old Bill when they look through the window, when Roy and Johnny climb through the window their gear is handed in to them, and John takes the drug box with his left hand and Biophone with his right, but in the next interior shot John's taking them with the opposite hands.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', the woman who opens the door tells them she didn't call, and when Roy asks her if he and Johnny can check on her sick husband, Roy's second shirt button is open and his undershirt is visible, but in the next shot it's buttoned up again.

Emergency! mistake picture

Fools - S3-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 is dispatched to 'person caught in a mailbox', have a look at the squad's license plates when it rolls up on scene. The plates read "70324H" which is the California commercial plate number for Squad 51, not the usual prop dept's license plate "E999007." It was the prop dept's responsibility to change from the commercial plate to the prop plate, but this scene slipped by them. It's also interesting to notice that this scene takes place at a real intersection up the block from Universal Studios, which is the direction Squad 51 came from. Note the "Black Tower/MCA Tower" in the background, which houses Universal's executive offices.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the fire at the winery, just as Squad 51 rolls up, in this semi-closeup we can see that it's Roy driving and exiting the squad, and also that it's actually Randolph Mantooth's double exiting the squad and getting the drug box from the side compartment. Also fun to note the difficulty the double had just opening the squad's door.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: While the judge and young lawyer are doing CPR to help, Roy's tearing off strips of tape and placing them on his pants (for IV as usual), then after he asks Johnny, "Were you able to get in touch with Rampart?," in the next shot all those strips of tape have vanished from his pant leg, only to reappear when Roy defibs the patient.

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.

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.

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.
