The Nuisance - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: While Early is examining Johnny in the ER, telling Roy about symptoms for ruptured liver or spleen, in the closeup Roy's holding up the IV bag with his right hand, but next wide shot it's held up in Roy's left hand.

Equipment - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: During this episode Brackett is wearing a tie with white, light blue, and dark blue broad stripes, which should be tied in an identical manner in consecutive shots, but it's not. One example is when Brackett examines the tree surgeon, but when he waits in the hall with Morton and Dixie while Malcolm takes x-rays, Brackett's tie is tied differently, and when he walks back into the room the tie reverts back.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny walks into the office to drop off the trash bin, he sees the Chief's clock on the wall and it reads 2:09, but when Johnny brings the clock to Captain Stanley and he gives it to Chet to hide, the clock's hands read 6:44. And when they're all dispatched, the timeout is 14:15.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

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. When Johnny and Roy return, and Johnny decides to dump all the food he cooked, a large stock pot has mysteriously and conveniently appeared on the counter, where it did not exist when they left.

Above and Beyond... Nearly - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: Dixie and Brackett rush onto the elevator with a crash cart to go up to the third floor, for a possible MI in the dental clinic. The camera's POV is from the elevator, and in one continuous shot, without cutting away, we see the ER hallway through the open doors, then the doors close and in a few moments the doors open on the third floor. Even though the set has changed a bit, we can tell it's still the ER hallway by things such as the same scuff marks on the floor, and we can also catch a glimpse of the paramedic status board on the wall, where the base station room is located.

Involvement - S5-E19

Visible crew/equipment: On scene at the accident with the tanker carrying liquid hydrogen, after Chet extinguishes the fire that ignited on Johnny's back, when the fire spreads and the car explodes, the car falls onto its side and the FX stunt platform that the car was resting on becomes visible. Then two shots later that platform has vanished, as they hose down the fire.

The Girl on the Balance Beam - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are at the movie studio, while they're dangling from their lifelines they're trying to help the actress dangling from her own lines, but when she freaks out she drops her wand (yes, a wand) in the wide shot, but next closeup she's still holding it.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When they pull Mrs. Merkle from under the wrecked car in the restaurant, the BP cuff is not visible around her right arm, but in her closeup she has the wide BP cuff around her arm with the gauge facing up, then in the wide shot once again the BP cuff is not visible.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marco and Chet use the jaws to lift the car off the victim, Roy begins to get her vitals, then it cuts to Captain Stanley on the Biophone saying, "Vitals second victim, pulse is 120, respiration's 30, she's pale and clammy," but it's not until quite a few shots later that Roy actually shouts those vitals to Captain Stanley.

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.

Surprise - S4-E6

Question: When the guys are hanging off the roof does anyone else see a white wire attached to the sign?

Answer: Yes, there's a thin cable secured to the sign's bottom mounting bracket which leads upward to the crane arm, and can be seen in quite a few shots at various angles. It's reasonable to presume that this cable which is secured to the crane was part of the sign's mounting process to the two wall brackets before the winds caused the accident, the premise of this rescue. For this reason it really can't be noted as "stunt wires being visible" or something like that.
