Since they have a telephone link between the chamber and the outer area, why do they at times hold notes up to the glass?
During the gunshot victims surgery, there is no evidence of blood on either surgeons' gloves, nor on the instruments, nor on the bone fragment they removed. The gloves stay pristinely clean throughout, that is totally unrealistic.
In the scene where the dispatcher calls for Squad 51 to respond to a call about a man down, he said that the time out was at 8:40. But, looking at the clock just above his mike, it says 11:44, not 8:40.
During Roy's resuscitation scene, Marco is having trouble fitting the oxygen mask to the tubing on the demand valve resuscitator. He finally gives up in trying to use the prop.
In the past, trainees wore helmets. Karen was given no helmet. Ride alongs also generally wore helmets. Perhaps this was oversight, or done deliberately since she was not a firefighter as well as a paramedic.
The pictures of the fire chief in the captain's office are those of the actual LA County fire chief, Richard Houts. He appears as himself later this season in the episode, "Above and Beyond ... Nearly"
This was the first appearance of Boot in nearly two years. He last appeared in the Season 3 episode, "The Promise". This was also Boot's final appearance, as he died shortly after the shooting of this episode. Neither of his disappearances is acknowledged on camera by the cast.
With Johnny hurt, members of the engine company helped Roy stabilize the car accident victim. Twice within the span of that rescue, Mike Stoker gives Roy the blood pressure without using a stethoscope
After replying to dispatch with Engine 51 KMG-365, Capt. Stanley tells the station mascot, Boot, "Shaggy, watch out will you?" As he tries to get past him to the Engine. Shaggy is not his name. Had to be an ad lib or a writing error.
Kevin Tighe (Roy) directed this episode. Unfortunately, there are many "goofs". (1) After Squad 8 is dispatched and Gage and Stone go back into the kitchen, the squad can clearly be seen through the window of the door in the background. (2) At the construction site, the patient is flatlined before being put in the ambulance. Later, when Johnny asked Dr. Bracket (and again when Stone asked Johnny) the answer was that he was flatlined when he got to the hospital. It should not have seemed so shocking to either Johnny or Stone. (3) Upon arriving at the hospital with the construction worker, the stock footage contains the audio of Roy stating "Full arrest #4", which is incorrect as Roy wasn't even part of the rescue. (4) Johnny was working overtime on Engine 8 with Stone as the captain... this means that Johnny and Stone would not be on the same shift. Yet Captain Stone and Engine 8 respond with Squad 51 on the same shift with Johnny at the rescue with the boy with the tick and the fireworks factory fire.
(5) At the fireworks factory fire, Squad 39 is called in to relive Squad 51. At the construction site, Squad 39 was the same model as Squad 51 (realizing they likely used the same squad and just re-numbered it for that rescue). However at the fire, the Squad 39 that shows up looks like it is about 20 years older. For consistency, the same older squad should have been used for the construction rescue as well.
At about 15 minutes into the episode, the paramedic truck returns to the station. The fire engine is the original one from the 1st and 2nd season.
This is the first time blue, green, yellow, and red direction lines are on the floor of the ER.
Starting with this episode, Rampart's base is in a room off the ER desk. It can be viewed from windows. A red light flashes over the door when a call comes in.
This is the very first time that we see the emergency dispatcher Sam Lanier on camera to make the call to Station 51.
This was a pilot for a new show to be titled 905-Wild. It was created by Jack Webb but was never picked up as a series.
This episode featured the original opening titles (Season 1/2) but is extended to include images for the Animal Control characters. Each of the characters involved has their own title and they are credited as "Also Starring". The opening sequence ends with a still shot of the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Control officer's badge.
Right before the "wake up" tones sound, we see an outside shot of the station with the flags up already. Mike Stoker puts the flags up in the morning. But they haven't gotten up yet at this point for him to do so.
Goof: After returning from the magic trunk trick, Roy and Gage back into the station. The main fire truck is the original truck used in Season 1/2. When they leave for their next call, the truck is back to the current fire truck.
At the big fire the facing from the building falls down on the antique engine and Roy and John go down to check it out. But there is no fire activity going on. Also it appears to be in pretty good shape. But later at the station the old engine looks like it did when they first got it.
This was the first and only time a firenet was used on Emergency.

70s, not for the faint of heart, hospital backdrop, high stake situations, for the nostalgic
