Emergency!

Captain Hook - S6-E8

Other mistake: As the fire apparatus are leaving the station for the helicopter rescue, the shot from the front shows doors at the back of the building but when they are leaving it shows a brick wall at the back of the building.

Suggested correction: When Station 54 are leaving for the "aircraft down" rescue, in the exterior long shot from across the street (of the real Station 127), we are not seeing the apparatus bay with a head-on frontal view. The camera is positioned so that viewers see the apparatus bay at an angle, and we are only able to see the very long interior left brick wall, with the doors to locker room/bathroom and the dorm. The back of the building with the rear roll-up door is simply not visible at this particular angle.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Other mistake: Stoker prematurely plots 617 Kimble Road on the map as the dispatcher is barely starting to say the address. Then the squad leads in the departure from the station, but when the squad arrives to the above dispatched location the engine is already finished with the dumpster fire.

Suggested correction: 1st part of the mistake is already noted and 2nd part is incorrect. The Engine and Squad are dispatched to 617-1/2 Kimball for unknown type rescue and Squad leads. At destination, Captain walks to the front door and rings bell, while off camera Roy and Johnny get rescue gear and join Stanley at front door. Dispatch then sends the Engine to trash container fire at Farber/Wilmington, while Roy and Johnny's Squad stays with current rescue involving dieffenbachia. After this, the Squad joins Engine.

Show generally

Other mistake: When the plane crashes into the neighborhood and traps Gage and DeSoto in the house, you see outside shots of the squad when the other two paramedics arrive. You can see a large piece of smoking engine/plane laying on the back end of the squad, right over the spare air tanks. They would have exploded when something that heavy and hot landed on them, since they are filled with oxygen. The tanks would be full or they would not be on the back of the squad.

Suggested correction: Probably air tanks, because oxygen tanks are always painted green. Both kinds of tank are very tough. Hard to tell with how much force the plane debris might have landed except that the truck still looks pretty much intact. However, if the plot required it, I would find it completely believable that the crash could have exploded the tanks, but also don't find it strange that they didn't explode.

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

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.
