Daisy's Pick Blind Date - S4-E7

Other mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the ice house, there's a closeup of Johnny's arms as he's hosing down the ice and removing it from the hypothermic victim's arm, but it's obvious that the dark hairy arms belong to the stunt double, not to Johnny.

Continuity mistake: When John shows Chet the card with the address that Daisy gave him, Chet quickly takes John's pen to write the address, and when John grabs his pen back he quickly and unsuccessfully tries to put the pen back in his shirt pocket, but in the next shot the pen's in his pocket.

Daisy's Pick Blind Date - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When John and Roy are with the little boy in respiratory arrest, while John uses the Ambu bag his watch reads 12:15, then he informs Rampart that they have O2 on the boy and goes back to the Ambu bag, and now his watch reads 12:25, though it's only been a minute.

Daisy's Pick Blind Date - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: While Roy, Johnny, and Cap are in the ice house with the hypothermic victim, there's a closeup of the pipe's frozen shut-off valve in the upright position with an ammonia leak, and the manifold temp/pressure gauges that are hanging from it. Then, when Johnny goes to wrap the rag around the valve it's upside-down, but in the next shot the valve is upright once again, and the manifold gauges are now facing the opposite way.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While en route to the accident, just as we hear the dispatcher inform Engine 51 that the fire is out, in the exterior shot of Squad 51 there's black tape covering much of the lightbar's chrome atop the cab, which vanishes when they roll up on the accident scene.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When Roy's in the ambulance with the man who was rescued from under The Boat, he's on the Biophone with Rampart, and just after Roy says, "So we've occluded the arterial flow in the right arm," in the next shot from inside the ambulance, we can see that they pass a couple of parked GlamourTrams. The ambulance drives around Universal's lot while shooting the footage inside the moving ambulance, en route to Rampart.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Brackett walks into the adjoining treatment room to talk to Pete about his pregnant wife, and tells him to sit, the legs (wearing jeans) of the cameraman/crew member are reflected on the chrome of the gurney, as he walks forward when the camera dollies in for a closeup.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: At the home of the pregnant woman who was shot, the only ones there with Dora are Pete, Roy, Johnny and Vince. When the two ambulance attendants bring in the stretcher, a crew member's entire right arm (wearing short, white sleeve with pinstripes) comes into view on the right side of the screen, as the camera pans back.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: After Johnny and the attendants exit the ambulance with Dora, the pregnant woman, the ambulance is empty and the drug box is on the seat with the Biophone on the floor beside the seat, but in the next shot as the gurney is wheeled inside, the drug box is now on the floor between the Biophone and seat.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: Before the fake eye test begins Captain Stanley hands each guy their own cheat sheet, and when Chet walks out of the day room upset about the eye test, John puts his cheat sheet into his shirt pocket just as they're being dispatched to the "accident and car fire." After the rescue, when John and Roy get back to the station John joins Chet by the lockers, and when John tries to prove that the eye test was a prank, John opens his locker and pulls out his cheat sheet, even though we saw him place it in his shirt pocket before the run.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 and the ambulance arrive at Rampart with the father and unconscious diabetic son, the type of ambulance that backs up to the ER entrance is a station wagon, but in the interior shot from Rampart the ambulance type is a truck.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Dixie goes to the waiting room to get Pete Barlowe so she can bring him to see Brackett, we see Carol, the nurse with black hair, working behind the admitting desk, but in the next shot Carol is in the treatment room with Brackett and Pete's wife.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When John is in the moving ambulance with the pregnant gunshot victim, Brackett asks him if he hears fetal heart tones, and when John removes the stethoscope from his ears he leans back and we can see out the window that the ambulance is quite stationery, despite the siren.

Trainee - S2-E8

Roy: I think you're on some sort of an ego trip, Ed. And in my book that makes you a very dangerous character.
Ed: [Laughs.] Ego trip, huh? Well, I didn't realize that psychiatry was part of the paramedic's training.
Roy: Oh that's good, Ed, you be funny. But that isn't gonna change anything. You wanna know what I figure? Well, I figure when you were working in Vietnam, it was rough. So rough you started playing over your head. And you were making it, you were doing real good. Considering it was a combat situation. And pretty soon you started getting all blown up about how Ed Marlowe is just as good as the real doctors. And you've been living on that ever since. And the trouble is, Ed, you are good. Except for two little problems. You can't quit competing with real doctors. And you can't face being wrong. You see, those people we treat out there, I mean the people we work for, the people who pay for this whole operation, they're real people, Ed, with real problems. And they have a right to expect more than just being used by you for some sort of trip. [Completely exasperated.] I guess what I'm trying to say to you, Ed, is that in my book you're just plain unprofessional.
[Ed walks out.]
John: Do you think it did any good?
Roy: Do you?

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.

Show generally

Question: Why is the driveway in front of the station always wet? Day or night, whenever they pull in or out it looks like it was just hosed down.

Answer: It is standard practice to wet down driveways so that they stand out in a long shot.
