The Firehouse Four - S4-E11

Character mistake: When Dr. Brackett talks to the attempted suicide's boyfriend, he tells Brackett that the girl has already attempted suicide a total of three times, and the first time she was hospitalized, but a minute later when Dr. Morton reads the hospital records and tells Brackett that the girl attempted suicide the previous year and was hospitalized, Brackett then tells Morton that her boyfriend said that she tried it three additional times. It was just a minute earlier that the boyfriend said two additional times, not three.

It's How You Play the Game - S4-E19

Character mistake: On scene at the vehicle accident, John palpates a pulse on the driver's leg and tells Roy that he's got a good strong foot pulse. Then when Roy's on the line with Rampart we hear him say, "He has a strong fetal pulse," but presumably Roy certainly must have meant to say, "strong pedal pulse."

Back-Up - S4-E21

Character mistake: After Squad 51 joins Engine 51 at the heart attack incident, while Roy's on the Biophone with Rampart he sends a second EKG strip, and Early orders, "100 milligrams lidocaine bolus," but he mispronounces lidocaine and says, "Lidograin," then he pronounces "Lidocaine drip" properly.

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.
