    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Continuity Error: The second person to receive his captain's badge at the beginning of the movie is named Craig Brice, which was the name of the paramedic portrayed by actor James G. Richardson who got on Roy and Johnny's nerves in three separate episodes during the final season of the series.  However, the Craig Brice who appears only briefly to accept the badge is African-American.

      • There are only three people with original speaking lines the entire movie: Kevin Tighe, Randolph Mantooth, and Fire Chief Richard Houts.

      • Goof: While introducing the clip from Season 2 where Johnny passes out attempting to rescue a man from scaffolding, Roy says Johnny "had the flu and didn't even know it." The actual story line from that episode involved a rare virus contracted from a pet monkey, which killed another firefighter and nearly killed Johnny as well as Dr. Brackett and the money's owner.


         

      • Following the ceremony in which Chief Richard Houts awards Roy and Johnny (among others) their badges, the rest of the movie takes place on the patio outside of headquarters, where Roy and Johnny reminisce, introducing clips from the series.
