Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Other mistake: When Johnny prepares Chef Michel's recipe, he leaves the casserole dish in the oven while Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire. When he and Roy return, Johnny opens the hot oven door to find it smoking and the dish bubbled over, and even though the oven door is supposedly very hot, Roy places his hand on the inside of that door and actually leans on it like there's absolutely no problem.

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: After Johnny discovers that the white stuff he left cooking on the stove has turned green, Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire, so everyone rolls on the call.

Continuity mistake: At the decompression chamber on Catalina Island, after John and Roy introduce themselves to Dr. Scott, the doctor removes the stethoscope from around his neck and puts it down, but in his closeup it's still around his neck, then in the wide shot it's gone, only to return in closeup again.
