Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the ER after the cave-in rescue, while they're talking to Dixie and Brackett, we can see how long Johnny's hair is. After they get back to the station, when the guys decide to name the dog Henry, there's a closeup of Johnny and now his hair is much shorter and even layered at the sides. Additionally, the dirty areas on his shirt change.

Isolation - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: When the patients who were treated at 86's arrive at the ER, Dix has Morton take the asthmatic boy with bronchitis into treatment 1. Then, when Roy is with Early in treatment 4, Early tells Roy to go to treatment 1 to ask Morton if he needs help, and when Roy walks into treatment 1 we can see that it's not really treatment 1, it's actually treatment 4 just playing the part of treatment 1.

Then Vince, who's wearing a watch and ring on his right arm/hand, reaches for all the ringing telephones, and one by one he removes the receivers from the bases, but the right arm/hand in the closeup has no ring or watch.

Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny cross the road to talk to the sheriff about the injured rock climbers, Roy does not have gloves in the back pocket of his jeans or anywhere else, nor does he take gloves from the sheriff's trunk with the other climbing gear, before he and Johnny begin their ascent. However, when he reaches the boys, Roy has a pair of thick work gloves sticking out of his back pocket.

An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: While John and Roy begin rehearsing in front of Marco and Chet, when John lights the flame his watch reads 10:00, but just a few minutes later when John puts the sawdust into the strainer his watch reads 10:30. When Squad 51 is dispatched to "sick child," timeout is 12:13, and after John and Roy get back to the ER the second time after searching the garage for the poison it's 1:05 at the ER. Then when they're on the Tom Jensen Show, as Roy tries to light the flame John's watch reads 11:30, but when he and Roy are treating the electrical shock victim, his watch reads 4:00.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: After John heads down to the victims of the cave-in, when they send down the drug box with the HT, the trauma case is still beside Roy, but when Johnny asks for the blankets the trauma case is gone. Then Johnny gives Roy the victims vitals, and when Johnny goes to the vent pipe to get the blankets they just sent down, suddenly the trauma case is down below with him, and it's open, but Johnny never retrieved the case before getting the blankets. Additionally, Roy tells Rampart that the victim has a "large discoloration on the chest", even though John never said anything about it to Roy, when he gave the victim's vitals over the HT.

Breakdown - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: While Charlie is finishing up on the squad's engine, Captain Stanley hands Johnny the address in the canyon that has overgrown weeds, and when Johnny packs up the toolbox, Charlie holds out the roll of electrical tape and the combination wrench, with its open-end up.

An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: At the ferris wheel, when the boy starts to climb down to help the man in the lower seat, in the closeup he steps on the two yellow, fluorescent tube light bulbs causing the bulbs to plummet and shatter on the ground below. The problem is that those two fluorescent bulbs did not even exist in the prior wide shots, that lamp socket space was empty.

The Exam - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: While Roy and Johnny are studying, after hearing Roy's positive horoscope Johnny tells Chet his birthday is August 28th. However, in the pilot episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," Dixie has a get-together as a combination celebration of John's birthday and gathering of the supporters of the paramedic program. At the party Dixie offers the hors d'oeuvres to Johnny saying, "You first, it's your birthday," as he takes a mouthful of food. During that week we see people wearing coats, and the many deciduous trees (not the evergreens and palms) in LA County have already lost their leaves, which means it's certainly not summertime, August 28th.

Computer Terror - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: While Roy and John are with the man whose back went out, when Thadeus runs off with the BP cuff and Roy chases him, Roy has the stethoscope around his neck with the chest piece hanging down, but once Roy falls into the pool the chest piece is suddenly tucked down into the front of Roy's shirt.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, we see the squad and engine pull back into the station, and one of the guys - it would be either Marco or Chet, is standing on the engine's tailboard motioning to Mike, who is driving backwards, but in the next shot both Marco and Chet are seated in their jumpseats as Engine 51 comes to a stop.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the structure fire, when Roy and Johnny rescue the man in room 22 by breaking the window, the door to room A is right beside them and we can see the axe mark on the door and the damage to the wall. When Johnny and Roy go back through the window to look for the missing Dr. Bennis, as Johnny uses the K-12, the door to room A now has many more axe marks and the damaged wall is far less damaged.

That Time of Year - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Morton and Early are examining the guy with stomach pain and cramps, Morton's stethoscope is around his neck with the earpiece at his left and the chestpiece to his right, but in the closeup it's the opposite way around, then it's back to the original way.

Visible crew/equipment: When Station 10 is dispatched to the factory fire, a few shots after the closeup of 105's door that reads "fire dept deluge", there's an overhead long shot of the men using the hoses against the fires in the doorways, and a cameraman wearing blue, holding a handheld camera, is visible sitting at the back of a squad.

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.

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.
