Continuity mistake: After bringing in the atropine overdoses from the daffodil bulbs, in the shot from inside the treatment room when Roy and John leave treatment 3, which is opposite the nurses' station, they turn left to head towards receiving, but next shot they're walking from around the corner in the hallway, then pass that door they just left from.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Roy tells Johnny to call Barbara, while they're standing by the telephone in the kitchen, Squad 51 is dispatched to 'man unconscious at Observation Park', and when the squad rolls out of the apparatus bay, the engine we see parked in the bay is the Crown from the first two seasons, not the current Ward LaFrance.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When the parathion victim is brought into the ER, they go into treatment 2, but in the view from inside the treatment room when John opens the door to leave, we can see that he's actually on the opposite side of the hall facing treatment 2, which means he's in treatment 1.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny's on the ledge with Richard, just as Richard awakens he knocks the penlight out of John's pocket, but when Roy joins them on the ledge the penlight is back in Johnny's pocket, beside the green pen.

Other mistake: Richard is in room 603 and jumps out of the 6th floor hallway window. In the long shot of the exterior of the building, we see that he's lying on the ledge of the row of windows that are second from the top. The elevator shows 8 floors, which means that he's actually lying on the 7th floor's window ledge.

The Promise - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Bo goes to Richard's room for the first time, in the view from inside the patient's room, as Bo pushes open the door we can see the hallway behind him, and there's a perpendicular wall beside the door. This wall does not exist when he visits Richard the second time, because there's a hallway leading to the elevator outside of Richard's door.

Continuity mistake: When Bo Jensen goes to Richard's room for the second time, as he pushes open the door we can see there's a wall perpendicular to the door, but when Bo is in the room there's a wide widow covered with curtains where that wall was. The window with curtains can also be seen in the exterior shots, when Richard jumps out the hallway window.

Revealing mistake: When Richard jumps out of the 6th floor window, in the interior shot we see that he lands right at the base of the window's frame, as his body bounces back from the impact, but when Brackett looks out the window Richard is lying on the ledge, which is much farther down than the window's bottom frame.

Inheritance Tax - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: After the paint factory fire, when Roy and John are with the lawyer in Captain Stanley's office, Roy's chair is either directly in front of the desk or off to the side, depending on camera angles. Their body positions change between shots as well.

Other mistake: During the fire at the paint factory, just after the barrels at the back of the pickup up truck explode, in the next shot we see Marco and Chet manning a hose. In this closeup, another fireman runs up to them and he's wearing a helmet with 51 on it, but it's obvious he's not one of 51's guys, plus Roy and John are with the burn victim and Mike's at the engine. The fact that it's a closeup and we can see perfectly well that he's not actually from 51 makes this too odd.

Continuity mistake: When Dixie opens the door to Brackett's office, there's a pile of white papers on the desk in front of Brackett, but when he walks out of the office, in the view from the hallway, the desk lamp has moved and there are no papers where there were in the previous shot.

Other mistake: After Mr. Winthrop is brought to the ER, there is a closeup of his EKG monitor as it's picking up multiple PVCs, but when Brackett asks him about the tension in his life, the monitor seen behind him is showing a flat line. This happens once again after Roy and John leave the treatment room, just before they move him to CCU.
