Emergency! (1972)

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the 'man trapped between two buildings', Roy is not wearing a watch when he and John head out on the lines between the buildings and also when they get back on the roof, but during the actual rescue while on the lines, both stunt guys are wearing watches on their wrists.

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the 'man down', time out is 21:30, but when Johnny and Roy are at Mr. Jefferson's apartment, Johnny's watch reads 3:05. Back at the station, when Chet's sitting beside Johnny at the typewriter, Johnny's watch reads 5:15, but at Rampart it's after 2:00 when Mr. Jefferson has the bypass operation. When Station 51 is dispatched to the car accident, time out is 1:50, but when Johnny checks the woman's pupils, his watch reads 1:00, and when they're back at the station his watch reads 10:05, as Johnny tells Roy that the show is crazy.

All Night Long - S6-E21

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are in the apartment, just as Mr. Jefferson mentions that Shorty brought in hot tractors, it cuts to a closeup of Roy who is not wearing a stethoscope, but in the next shot the stethoscope is suddenly around Roy's neck.

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to 'the man down' at the hotel, Roy gets into the squad fully dressed (he was talking to Chet) and wearing his blue uniform shirt, but when they're in the apartment his shirt is gone and he's only wearing an undershirt under his jacket, though Johnny is wearing his uniform shirt.

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to 'man down' at Hotel Potter, the address is given as 11876 Fishburn, between MacArthur and West 7th, but when the squad and engine are in front of the building, the corner street signs read Trenton and Parkview.

Show generally

Other mistake: There are two specific pieces of stock footage used from season 3 onward, when the camera faces the fire station, it shows either just Squad 51, or both Squad 51 and Engine 51 pulling out of the apparatus bay, then turning left (viewer's right) onto E 223rd St, and the real Station 127's Truck 127 can be seen parked in the side driveway. Examples are: In season 6, "The Exam", when Squad 51 responds to Molly's phone call, and in "Hypochondri-Cap", when Station 51 is dispatched to an 'unconscious female in a car'.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and the doctor are in the pressurized chamber with the diver, the guy outside the chamber tells them that they're at 165 and vetting, as he holds the mic up to his mouth with his left hand, but when it cuts to the interior shot, the mic is held up in his right hand.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Deliberate mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on the Coast Guard helicopter, approaching Catalina Island with the injured diver, there is a closeup shot of them looking out the windows, which is a flipped shot - note the backwards paramedic patch on the right sleeve, instead of being on the left sleeve.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?

Body Language - S3-E12

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Station 51 arrives at the structure fire, Captain Stanley tells Mike to get water to their lines (charging the two lines) and then mule the supply line back to the hydrant. When Marco and Chet get the two lines, they head to the house with Captain Stanley and start hosing the fire down with charged lines. A few shots later, we see Mike going to the back of Engine 51, and the two lines that Chet, Marco, and Cap have been using are flat and not even charged yet.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Factual error: When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have to be in contact with Roy's body for the "quick-look" to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy, Johnny, and Karen are waiting outside the treatment room with the elderly patient, with Brackett and then with Dix, the outlines of the lavalier mic transmitters are visible on the left sides of Roy's and Johnny's shirts, over their belts.

Heavyweight - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the structure fire, after Roy helps the pregnant woman down the stairs, when Johnny brings the O2 and blankets for her, we see that Johnny's wearing a SCBA tank with no markings. However, after Roy tells Johnny to take off, when Johnny hurts his shoulder, his tank has two large stickers - a white and a red.
