Emergency!

Correction: When Billy Zimmer is introduced to Roy and John, what he actually says is, "Gentlemen, how do you do."

Show generally

Corrected entry: Gage, DeSoto, and the crew are called to a serious truck/car fire accident scene, and are busy with putting the car fire out, while Gage helps DeSoto tend the wounded victims. The sky is overcast and cloudy, indicating rain possibly earlier in the day. This overcast remains during the hose-down. However, immediately after the fire is extinquished and both vehicles put out, the victims stabilized by ambulance, suddenly the day changes to bright sunlight and blue sky as Chief is calling in the OK.

Correction: Believe it or not, the weather can change that quickly in the Los Angeles basin. In late spring/early summer, an offshore marine layer often covers many locations near the coast with deep overcast overnight until late morning, when it can disappear very quickly - certainly in the hour or so it would take to put out a relatively small fire.

Women - S2-E9

Corrected entry: The sick child Dr. Joe and Dr. Mike are examining is supposed to be fatally poisoned, but his head changes position twice during subsequent shots.

Correction: If the child is only sick at the time, then, even if incurably poisoned, it doesn't stop them moving their head until they're actually dead.

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

The Promise - S3-E11

Trivia: During Richard's rescue from the ledge at Rampart, the snorkel that Roy and Brackett climb onto is Truck 127, from Station 127 aka Station 51. Truck 127 is used in many episodes requiring a snorkel, including 1x6, "Dealer's Wild" and 3x16, "Fools." There's a particularly nice shot at the end of this episode, when Engine 51 and Squad 51 are parked parallel to each other, and when Johnny responds to dispatch that Squad 51 is available, Truck 127 drives away between 51's vehicles. Nice touch.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Question: The old man that comes in with his wife that can't breathe, the one that the head nurse tries to counsel and tempts him with a cup of coffee. I believe he is Alfred Hitchcock, though his name is not listed anywhere. Alfred Hitchcock is known for his cameo appearances in his own shows and in other shows. Can someone confirm that this is him? This is driving me nuts... It is toward the end of the episode, but I cannot give you times.

Correct, it was J. Pat O'Malley...he also played the grandfather with his grandson when their rocket exploded, and also played "Old Bill" in the episode with Ann Prentiss, where Gage saves the little girl from the burning tree house, and her mother falls in love with him.
