Continuity mistake: At the singles club fire, after Roy and Johnny go in to look for the missing man, we see Mike charging the lines, then there's a shot of two of 16's guys walking past the stairway with a hose, and notice that on the stairway we can see Johnny's and Roy's legs heading down the stairs. This same shot is shown again after Roy and Johnny check the men's room upstairs, and once again we see Roy and John coming down the stairs when 16's guys walk past them.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When the cardiac patient is finally brought to the ER, and goes into full arrest number four, he's wheeled into treatment 1 which does not have a window on its door, but in the next shot from inside the room the door has a window, and when they're defibbing him, we can see the nurses' station outside the door, which means he's now in treatment 3, not 1.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: After leaving the football player who kicked in his TV screen, as Roy and John put the gear back in the squad, we see the old blue set of the Datascope 850 monitor and defibrillator, and not their current Datascope M/D2 white case. The last time the blue two-piece unit is even seen in the squad is in 4x13, "Parade", and the first time the white unit is used is in 4x15, "Transition", and it's then used in all following episodes. This scene was a prior taping, that was inserted into this end of the season episode.

Trivia: After John and Roy dial the wrong number twice, it cuts to a shot of LACoFD headquarters, and the dispatcher, Sam Lanier, transmitting the paging tones. In the closeup of the Motorola Quik-Call, note the company numbers on the tabs and that all FD companies are in numerical order except for 51, which is placed beside 127. (Can also be seen in other episodes).
