The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

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.

The Great Crash Diet - S5-E22

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.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

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.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, the anesthesiologist brings the cart with a ventilating unit close to patient, then there are two closeups of Bird's Mark 4 unit and the bellows housing showing inflation and deflation, and on the bellows unit it reads "Animal Anesthesia Ventilator" made by Bird. This is also the same closeup we see of the ventilator unit in 4x18, "Prestidigitation," during the surgery on Brackett's father.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the victim who has a projectile in his heart from a lawn mower, Brackett asks for an EKG strip and there's a closeup of the Datascope monitor, even though the Datascope is not actually in the ER's base station room (it's also still in the squad at this point). Also interesting to note, when Brackett walks out of the base station and tells Early about the heart wound, Early turns the medical chart he's holding at an angle, looks down at it and it appears that he's reading his line from the chart. Then when the ambulance arrives at the scene, the stethoscope is around Johnny's neck, then it's back around Roy's neck as Johnny's lifting the patient, then it's gone from Roy's neck, and then Johnny puts it back around Roy's neck.

The Tycoons - S5-E23

Continuity mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, he's wheeled into treatment 2, which has a window on its door, and is on the side of the hallway with the yellow line closest to it. Later we see treatment 1 twice, when Vince brings in the burglary suspect with a bullet in his leg, and also when John and Roy rush the baby to the ER. They used the same room as treatment 1 and treatment 2, but there are just two treatment rooms on that side of the hallway and only one of them has a window on its door - the one that's opposite the nurses' station, treatment 1.
