Emergency! (1972)

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are tending to the actor with the possible heart attack, Brackett asks for an EKG strip, so Roy holds out his right hand to give Johnny the cable, but in the next shot Roy's holding out his left hand with the cable.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Other mistake: After Johnny and Roy are dispatched to the actor with the possible heart attack, Brackett asks them to send an EKG strip, and when Brackett lifts the chart paper to read it, he is not looking at the side that would have the line tracing recorded by the stylus, he is actually looking at the back of the paper as it's rolling out of the machine. Also note that the chart paper is quite blank on both sides. Additionally, just prior to this, when Brackett presses the record tab on the recorder, it just pops back up and does not engage.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the man who has difficulty breathing, once they arrive and it cuts to a closeup, at the top of the screen there is a small dark film square that moves towards the left corner, and then it stays there in the following shots facing Johnny, until he contacts Rampart on the Biophone.

Honest - S2-E17

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are with the guy who somersaulted off the roof into the pool, Johnny is in the pool giving him oxygen, and in the closeups Johnny's left hand varies between very hairy, not hairy at all, normal fingernails and bitten up fingernails. Additionally, the hand holding the mask on the boy's face changes back and forth between Johnny's left and right hand, between shots.

Honest - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Station 51 is dispatched to the fire and explosion, in the overhead wide shot we see Gage getting into the squad on the passenger side, but in the closeup Gage is in the driver's seat, and when they arrive at the scene it's DeSoto who's driving.

Honest - S2-E17

Other mistake: At the start of this episode the tones drop and Station 51 is dispatched to a fire and explosion. In this closeup, all the guys come running from the kitchen into the apparatus bay and head for the vehicles, but wait, none of them are actually 51's guys.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Other mistake: When the tones drop and the lights come on, waking up 51's guys in the middle of the night for the industrial fire, there are two closeups of the guys putting their feet into the boots and pulling up their turnout trousers. The problem is that the closeups are not Station 51's guys - note the beds, linens, walls, floor are all different. The two closeup shots are from the first episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act", and the guys are from Station 10.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched in the middle of the night to the industrial fire, the dispatcher says "Time out 1:07," but later at Rampart after Brackett tells Johnny to stay the rest of the night because of the exposure to the radiation, we hear the voice on the PA announce, "Visiting hours are over" even though it's supposed to be at least 3:00 AM.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny get to the airport and start talking to the boy flying the plane, the clock reads 11:55, but when Frankie puts the oxygen mask on his father it's 12:15, then when Roy reassures the boy about flying straight and level, it's 12:40, and so on, even though it's really supposed to be only a few minutes between these shots.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Johnny learns of his last rescue's death, when he enters the hallway the treatment room beside the nurses' station is treatment 4, but when Brackett and Early pass the nurses' station to go save a rabbit from a sousaphone, it's treatment 2 that's beside the nurses' station. Then, as soon as Brackett and Early enter their door, in the next shot as Dix speaks to the officer, it's treatment 5 beside the nurses' station.
