The Bash - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the bomb threat, just as they roll up on scene, in this specific POV the corner edges of the screen are blacked out due to the lens that was used, but when it cuts to other angles it's gone, then it reappears with that POV. We see it three times.

Continuity mistake: When Gil's in the basket ride at the amusement park, while Captain Stanley swings the line that Johnny's hanging on, in the closeups the open cage door is facing Johnny, but in the long shot looking up the basket's open door is on the opposite side, and Johnny would not have been able to enter it as easily.

Continuity mistake: When Roy walks into the ER with the chemical burn patient they rescued from a kitchen filled with hydrogen sulfide, Dixie tells them treatment 1 which has a windowless door, but in the shot from inside the room the door has a window, and we can tell it's treatment 3 they're in.

Continuity mistake: After Brackett and Johnny try to convince Gil that he's not responsible for the MI patient's death, when Johnny walks out of the treatment room he says he's going to check on Roy, and as he opens the door we can tell that he's in the room across from the nurses' station. Then when he and Roy leave the treatment room where Early had examined Roy, we can see that it's the very same treatment room that Johnny had just been in with Brackett.

Continuity mistake: After Gil and Johnny have lowered the man from the amusement park ride, Gil, who's wearing the backpack, rappels down first and reaches the ground. Then when Johnny hooks in and rappels down, there's a shot of what is supposed to be Johnny rappelling down, but it's actually a shot of Gil, because it was Gil who was wearing the backpack.

Breakdown - S6-E15

Charlie: I think you guys are playing games with me, and I don't like it.
Roy: Now, wait a minute. We're not playing games. We don't play games with the equipment...
Captain Stanley: Wait, hold on. C'mon everybody, look we're all on the same side here, aren't we?
Charlie: I wonder.
Captain Stanley: Charlie, why can't we put the squad in the shop and have us a reserve vehicle here?
Charlie: No, no, Hank. Not until I'm 100% sure that I can't fix it. If there's anything wrong with it. This coffee stinks. [Leaves the room.]
Captain Stanley: You guys playing some kind of joke on him?
John: We didn't make the coffee!
Captain Stanley: Not the coffee, you twit, the squad.
Roy: Cap, there's something wrong with that squad out there.
Captain Stanley: [sigh.] All right, if you say so... I made the coffee.

More quotes from Emergency!

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.

More trivia for Emergency!

Show generally

Question: In quite a few episodes of Emergency there is a character that the doctors and other nurses call Nurse Carol. She is the older nurse with dark hair. I would say she is on at least a fourth of all episodes in all seasons yet I can not see this actress getting credited or listed as uncredited anywhere. I wonder if she was an actual nurse. Does any one know who she was. Yes there also were a couple of other actresses who played a nurse named Carol on one or two episodes and they are listed in the episode guides. She also is the patient with her arm in the cast talking to Dr. Morton in the episode 6:18 Firehouse Quintet.

Answer: On IMDB, actress Anne Schedeen is listed as playing Nurse Carol on six episodes from 1974-76.
