Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Other mistake: When John, Roy, and Vince grab the officer who was shot by the sniper and make a run for it, as they duck behind the car, right behind them we can see a city bus just driving on by the lot, directly in the sniper's line of fire, even though that area's supposedly closed off with heavy police presence.

Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dixie gives John a tetanus shot because he fell from a skateboard onto cactus, we know they're all in treatment 1, because when Johnny and Roy are at the open door we can see the door and wall (with fire extinguisher) on the opposite side of the hall, but in the next shot from the hallway he and Roy are leaving treatment 4, which is opposite treatment 3.

Continuity mistake: After loading the officer with the gunshot wound onto the ambulance, en route to Rampart when Johnny is checking the wound, Johnny's watch reads 11:10, but when he's adjusting the mask and the resuscitator regulator, his watch reads 11:55.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: When John and Roy treat the 12 year old boy in anaphylactic shock, Early states, "Start IV D5W, 1 milligram epinephrin IV push," and John confirms the order. Then after giving Rampart a new set of vitals which are poor, Early orders, "Add 50 milligrams Benadryl IV push." But when John confirms that order he only says, "1 milligram epinephrine IV push," (which is the earlier order) and Early actually okays John's incorrect repeat of the order, even though John did not confirm the order of "50 milligrams Benadryl."

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is on scene at the vehicle accident in the canyon, after Marco uses a crowbar to free the driver of the station wagon and he pulls the driver out, a crew member standing behind the FX 6-ft wind machine fan (to blow smoke) are visible in the background beside the other overturned car. As an aside, in the previous and following shots that crew member and wind machine fan are in the same spot where Chet and Johnny supposedly are.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Roy and Joanne are going to be on a TV quiz show. When the guys are eating soup and sandwiches, Captain Stanley asks Roy, "You nervous about being on the tube tonight?" However, Roy didn't do the quiz show that night, because later we see they're on their next shift, and Roy is getting into his uniform when Johnny says "Tonight's the big night," and Roy tells him that Dwyer will do the rest of his shift when he leaves early.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to the 'vehicle accident with injuries', in the exterior shot as the squad and engine roll out, we can see the real Station 127's vehicle is still parked inside the apparatus bay, near the rear bay door.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the liquor store shooting, en route they are almost hit by a driver who passed a stop sign at the intersection. This is the same footage from season 2, episode 13 "Drivers", when the squad is almost hit by a car while responding to a football injury.

Communication Gaffe - S4-E5

Other mistake: At the scene of the vehicle accident, with a raging fire going on, the Chief communicates over the HT with Copter 10, and when Copter 10 arrives and makes the water drop, it is actually Copter 14 we see in all the shots.

The Game - S6-E1

Trivia: It's in this episode that the Heimlich Maneuver is used for the first time by the paramedics. At the USC game, when a guy is choking on a hot dog, John and Roy are called, and John uses the Heimlich. Up until season 6 we've seen the guys use other methods, such as the ChokeSaver which look like huge white tweezers, to remove obstructions in an airway, as seen in 4x9, "Foreign Trade."

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.
