Camera Bug - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: After Roy and Johnny are dispatched to Station 68, Bob is lying on the floor with his shirt buttoned up and Roy has his hand on Bob's chest taking his respiration, but when it cuts to Bob's closeup his shirt is already unbuttoned, with the ECG electrode discs and leads in place on his chest. Additionally, in Bob's closeups the leads go from attached to the discs, to unattached, to attached again.
