Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: In the waiting room, after Mrs. Evans complains that she's been waiting in the ER for two hours, Dixie walks up the hallway to Brackett, who's beside treatment 1, but after Brackett tells her about the visiting administrators, Dixie walks away headed toward the nurses' station.

As an aside, this scene was shot right outside Universal Studios, note the Black Tower/MCA Tower (which houses Universal's execs) when John tells the veteran that it's not a trick and to calm down.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex fire, after Johnny is knocked unconscious by the explosion, when the Pasadena fireman finds him and has to lift him up, it's funny how even though Johnny's unconscious we can see that he actually helps to stand himself up, so the fireman can lift him up and carry him out.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: During the fire at the apartment complex, when Cap talks to dispatch over the HT and requests a second alarm, we see Roy put up that first ladder, but after the Pasadena engine arrives, Roy's just putting up that first ladder. Second, after Engine 82 extends their outriggers, it cuts to the flames and we see that three ladders are already against the building, but then there are only two up - the third will go up a few shots later (when Roy reaches the balcony) Third, we see Roy start climbing the ladder that's farther from the camera (the one Johnny's holding), but when Roy reaches the balcony, he's climbing up the ladder that's closer to the camera.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Herbert is leaving the station, there are shots of him on the left edge of the bay doorway, but in the shots of the guys looking at Herbert, particularly Chet and Marco who are standing in front of the squad, it's as if Herbert is crawling around towards the center of the bay doorway - their eye contact is way off.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Other mistake: At 6:50 AM, just before the dispatcher transmits the testing tones to Station 51 which wakes everyone up, we're shown the exterior shot of the station and the two flags are already flying. Guys of C shift (as Chet states) haven't arrived yet that morning, so they didn't raise the flags, and we know it's Mike who always raises the flags on A shift, but he only just woke up when the dispatcher sent the tones.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Herbert leaves the station in the morning, dispatch sounds the alarms, and when Roy and John are in the squad while the dispatcher begins talking, there are nice reflections of the camera, reflector screen (in the background), and crew members/cameraman who move around, that are visible on the surface of the spotlight. Additionally, the shadow of the boom/mic is perfectly visible on the windshield as it moves down.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: After the guys decide to eat lunch before resuming their CPR practice, when Chet picks up the CPR mannequin and walks toward the fridge, the top of the set is visible at the corner, between the fridge and the stove. We can see the top of the set again later, after Chet picks the losing matchstick and has to set the mousetrap himself.
