The Game - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, after the boy ties a bowline knot in the rope attached to the van, when the mom gets into the van with her daughter, the reflections of two crew members, the cameraman and the top of the camera are all visible in the vent window, in two shots.

Other mistake: The USC game that Roy and Johnny are assigned to is supposed to be a sold-out game, but in closeup shots of the crowd around the guys, we can see that around the small crowd of extras used during the shoot, the seats are empty.

Continuity mistake: In the ER staff lounge, when Early and Dixie are watching The Game, there are five books lying on the TV with all their binding facing the right side in the closeups, but in the wide shots the books are facing the opposite way, with binding facing the left.

Continuity mistake: When the injured photographer is brought to the ER, Dix says treatment 7 and we see them heading into 7's door (which is around the corner from treatment 4 and 5, and has no color lines that run past its door) in the shot from the hallway. However, in the next shot from inside the treatment room, we can see they're not in treatment 7, but actually in treatment 4, note the red, green, and yellow lines on the hallway floor in front of its doorway, and treatment 7 has no lines that run past its doorway. When Dixie, Early, and Brackett step into the hallway it's even more obvious.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: At the start of the USC game, after Johnny uses the Heimlich on the choking guy, when Roy asks him to take a deep breath Roy's left hand is on the man's chest, but in the next shot it is Roy's right hand that's on the man's chest.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: After the paramedic teams are given their instructions before the start of the USC game, in the closeup the Trojan warrior is given his helmet and he has the sword on the saddle, but he does not have his shield when he turns to ride onto the field, yet in the next shot of the real-life recorded footage the Trojan warrior has the shield.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When John is putting the pompier belt around the waist of the man stuck up in the tree, he buckles it so the flap is going towards the man's right, but in the next shot as Chet climbs the ladder behind John, the life belt is around the man's waist the opposite way. Then, when John cuts the rope, the belt is back on the original way.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: After bringing the sportscaster with the heart attack to Rampart, when Roy and John get back to the stadium then realize The Game's over, Roy carries the defib case and drug box, and John carries the resuscitator case and Biophone. All the cases switch hands and switch places between shots.

Visible crew/equipment: At The Game, when Roy and John respond to the possible heart attack which turns out to be a hyperventilating man, his wife stands behind Roy, and the bulging outline of the lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the back of her yellow blouse.

Continuity mistake: When Roy's shaving while Johnny's in the shower, Roy fills a bowl with cold water and tosses it into Johnny's shower stall, then goes back to shaving, and the shaving foam on Roy's face changes between these shots.

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene of the traffic accident, after Captain Stanley tells Johnny and Roy that the victim may have a fractured pelvis, just as Johnny places the Biophone on the roof of the car the camera's angle tilts down to face the victim, and we can see the reflection of the cameraman/crew member on the car window.

Visible crew/equipment: When Squad 51 is dispatched to 'man unconscious possible heart attack', while en route, two shots after Roy says "It's gonna be a long run," the reflection of the squad is visible on windows they drive past, and we can see the reflection of a crew member who's standing on the back of the moving squad. Slow motion is not necessary to see this. However, if you're into slo-mo you can catch it again later, when John and Roy head to the traffic accident victim.

Revealing mistake: During the rescue at the jail, while Roy tries to get a safety belt around the prisoner's waist, the man freaks out, then grabs Roy and they both swing out on Roy's safety line. When the camera pans a bit too far to the left, we can see the edge of the fake "sky" screen on the left, behind the building's replica set used for closeups.

Other mistake: When all the guys are sitting around the table discussing the paramedic problem, while Chet is looking in the fridge for the ketchup, we can see the milk containers on the door have their brand names covered.

Other mistake: While Roy's in the ambulance with the woman who fainted, when she holds out the bag of potato chips, we can see the large brand name on the front of the bag is covered with red tape in two places. Though they neglected to cover the small 'Lays' brand name on the side of the bag.

Other mistake: At the start, while Johnny is cleaning the oven, we can see that the oven cleaner spray can has tape covering its brand name, and anything else on the can that gives away the name of the brand.

Revealing mistake: On the roof of the jail, Roy buckles his safety belt around his waist, with an extra belt for the prisoner hanging from it as well. When Roy removes the second belt from his own, we can see two carabiners that are now attached to his lifebelt, which go down into Roy's pants. Those carabiners are presumably attached to extra support under Roy's pants.

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."

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.
