Computer Terror - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to the 'injured man', when Roy and Johnny get out of the squad, Roy is not wearing his watch as they're walking to the victim while getting hounded by the dog, but in the next shot the watch is back on Roy's wrist as the dog chews on his pants.

Computer Terror - S6-E9

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene of the scaffold accident on the side of the building, near the top of the crane, there is a small covered booth that hangs from the crane. We can see the reflection of the hidden second cameraman and his camera in the mirrored windows of the building, as he leans in and out of that booth to film some of the footage we see during this scene.

Revealing mistake: When John and Roy reach the man lying near the pool with a back injury, while Thadeus keeps gnawing and grabbing at Roy's pant leg, we see the extra material that Roy has under the pants (over his socks) to prevent the dog from accidentally harming his legs.

Other mistake: At the scrapyard with the man who was nearly crushed in the car, when Roy takes his BP the stethoscope chestpiece is on the man's arm in the wide shot, but in the closeup the chestpiece hangs in mid-air not actually touching the man's arm, yet Roy continues to read the BP.

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are with the back injury victim, his dog, Thadeus, runs off with the BP cuff, and when Roy chases him and falls into the pool, Roy's now wearing the water-type shoes, note the flat sole. Then when he and Johnny leave, the uniform shoes are back.

Other mistake: Station 51 responds to an "accident with injuries, " address 7526 Sunset, cross street, Abbott, to rescue two people stuck on scaffolding at the top of the tall building. This distinctive, mirrored glass building was also used this season in episode 6, "Rules of Order", with the address given as 3120 South Century, cross street, Burgess, for the rescue of two people hanging off the side of the tall structure. The actual building address is 500 190th Street, Gardena, CA.

Continuity mistake: While Roy and John are with the man whose back went out, when Thadeus runs off with the BP cuff and Roy chases him, Roy has the stethoscope around his neck with the chest piece hanging down, but once Roy falls into the pool the chest piece is suddenly tucked down into the front of Roy's shirt.

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and Roy are with Dixie at the nurses' station, when Johnny looks for his paycheck in his shirt pockets, his right pocket's flap stays wonky, part in/part out in the closeup, but in the wide shot it's properly flat, then crooked, then straight again. Additionally, after Johnny finds the check in his wallet, he puts it into his left shirt pocket and points at Roy with his empty right hand, but when Early walks over Johnny has that check in right hand.

Continuity mistake: During the scaffold rescue, when John climbs onto the platform he takes off his gloves as he starts to check the victim, but in the wide shot the stuntman is still wearing his gloves as he checks the victim.

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.

Surprise - S4-E6

Question: When the guys are hanging off the roof does anyone else see a white wire attached to the sign?

Answer: Yes, there's a thin cable secured to the sign's bottom mounting bracket which leads upward to the crane arm, and can be seen in quite a few shots at various angles. It's reasonable to presume that this cable which is secured to the crane was part of the sign's mounting process to the two wall brackets before the winds caused the accident, the premise of this rescue. For this reason it really can't be noted as "stunt wires being visible" or something like that.
