Emergency! (1972)

Isolation - S6-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When the police officer who was struck by lightning is wheeled into the ER, just as Dixie, Brackett, and Early walk up the hallway, the two tape marks are visible on the floor right outside the doorway of treatment 2, where Dixie is about to stand. Additionally, we can see the outline of the transmitter wire on the back of Dixie's uniform.

Emergency! (1972)

Isolation - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are at 86's treating everyone who is being brought in, when Johnny's on the Biophone with Brackett, in Brackett's closeups at the base station, we can see that the actor has a very swollen upper lip. When the officer who was hit by lightning is brought into the ER, Brackett's lip is much less swelled, and more the way it normally looks, but when Brackett is back at the base station, his upper lip is swelled up once again.

Limelight - S6-E24

Trivia: During dinner Johnny's voice is hoarse again, and after watching the news that incorrectly stated that Brice rescued the other firemen, when it really was the other way around, Roy makes a crack about Johnny never sounding better which irks Johnny, and as the scene closes he looks up at the camera with quite a perturbed look directed at the TV audience, which "breaks the fourth wall."

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 10 arrives first on scene at the factory fire, as 10's third rig pulls up and lays the line in the wide shot, at the left of the screen in the background, we can see the hidden second cameraman who is shooting the footage from that angle, of all the rigs pulling in and turning.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: During the factory fire, the Battalion Chief tells dispatch over the HT, "Fire through the roof, send me a third alarm," then in the next shot we see Engine 36 arrive, and when the engine comes to a full stop we can see two tripod lighting rigs and stacked film canisters, at the right of the screen.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: During the factory fire, after the Battalion Chief tells 127 over the HT, "Take the steamer hydrant at Fifth and Crocker, lay a three-and-a-half down the driveway..." three shots later there's a closeup of a spraying hose, and we can see in the background another cameraman and crew member shooting footage with a handheld.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Battalion Chief's car arrives on scene at the factory fire, he and the driver get out of the car, then it cuts to shots as they both stand beside the wall while the Chief talks to dispatch over the HT, but a few shots later we see the driver just getting out of the car as Engine 36 passes.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the man who was electrocuted is loaded onto 127's snorkel, we can see that he's wearing a white crew-neck undershirt under the denim shirt, but at the ER when his denim shirt is open there's nothing underneath.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When 127's snorkel is raised to rescue the man who was electrocuted atop a utility pole, as he's being loaded, in the first closeup within the snorkel, we can notice two things. We can see someone wearing denim at the left of the screen between 127's guy and Johnny, and we also see the ground past Johnny's head. Then as the snorkel is still being lowered, in the shot from the same POV, once again at the left we see that crew member wearing denim, who is outside the snorkel basket, and also see the ground, but the ground has not changed. This reveals that these two closeups were shot at ground level.

Continuity mistake: While Roy shows John the squad's right, front compartment, in the closeup of the Datascope a clipboard/notebook with a stack of papers suddenly appears atop the OB kit, which vanishes again in the OB kit's closeup.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and John walk into the apparatus bay they stand behind Squad 51, and in this wide shot we can see that the floor area around the squad has nothing on it, but when Squad 51 is dispatched to 'traffic accident with injuries', there is now a long black tape line on the floor, near the front tire.

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Roy finds Johnny in the squad reading '1000 Practical Jokes', Johnny's window is rolled down, and Roy places his arms over the passenger side door then leans in to talk to Johnny, but in all of Johnny's closeups Roy's arms are gone.

The Boat - S6-E19

Other mistake: In the bookie's apartment, on the table with all the telephones, there's a can of scouring cleanser which has the "a" and "x" covered, so all we see is the "ja" on the can, in order to hide its brand name, which is Ajax.

The Boat - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: After the bookmaker has had the heart attack, when Captain Stanley bangs on his door, the bookie pulls one of the four telephones onto the floor, and when Roy walks in it ends up lying on the floor between the defibrillator and drug box, leaving three phones on the table. However, in the closeup, when Vince places all the phone receivers onto the bases, there are four phones on the table, plus a notepad suddenly appears on the table, and there are fewer cigarette butts in the ashtray.
