  • Season 4 Episode 11: Dancing With the Devil

  • Goof: Kat Foster's character was released by USA Network as Harper Cummings. The name is also spelled out in the network's episode re-caps. This episode is her third appearance and in this episode she introduced herself as Dr. Harper Kubelick.

  • Season 4 Episode 10: Who's Your Daddy

  • Goof:The photograph of Paige's father, Ret. General William Collins, as a young man shows him wearing a Marine Corps uniform, whereas the recent one shows him in an Army uniform.

  • Season 4 Episode 3: A Guesthouse Divided

  • Goof: At the end of her goodbye letter to Hank, Jill writes in a P.S. that she wishes "you guys could see how amazing this place is" as if she's in Africa while writing the letter. Jill asked Jake to give her letter to Hank before she left the Hamptons so it was written before she made it to Africa not after she got there.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: Listen to the Music

  • Goof: The limo that Dyvia and Raj get out of at the airport as well as the two police cars that pull up have the "Empire Gold" New York License plates which were issued by the NY State Dept. of Motor Vehicles starting in April 2010. The episode is set at the end of summer 2009 so the new plates shouldn't have been on these cars.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: Big Whoop

  • The infamous Wilhelm Scream, a popular sound loop from the 1951 movie Distant Drums and used by sound editors as an in-joke, can be heard coming from Stanley's laptop computer after he hands it to Evan and as Evan sets it on the bed (the sound of an exploding grenade immediately precedes the scream).

  • Season 2 Episode 2: Lovesick

  • Goof: When Hank is pulled over by the police, the officer walks him back to the car and tells Hank to get in. Then the officer sits next to him in the backseat and shuts the door. In real police cars, an officer would never do this because the door handles and window mechanisms for the backseat have been disabled, so the prisoners can't escape. The only way to get out of the backseat of a police car is to be let out by someone standing outside the car.

  • Season 1 Episode 10: Am I Blue?

  • Goof: When Hank enters Marshall's room and first examines him after the detox doctors leave, Hank says that Marshall has no pulse, however the heart monitor that Marshall is hooked up to clearly has a reading, meaning his heart is beating.

    Correction: When the heart is in ventricular fibrillation, there will be a reading on the heart monitor because the heart is trembling or beating erratically. However, the trembling is not enough to create a pulse that could be felt by palpating the carotid artery. In order to shock the heart into a normal rhythm, there needs to be some type of reading on the monitor. It is impossible to restart the heart when the reading is flatline or asystole.

  • Season 1 Episode 8: The Honeymoon's Over

  • Goof: When Hank and Julie find Zach on the floor of his studio, suffering a pulmonary edema, the amount of foam coming from his mouth changes between shots. In the wide shots the foam is overflowing from his mouth and dripping all the way down the side of his face but in the close up shots, the foam is only in his mouth.

  • Goof: Hank and Julie find Zach on the floor of his studio while suffering a pulmonary edema. However, the amount of discharge coming out of Zach's mouth varies as the camera switches to and from Zach prior to Hank wiping all of it up.

  • Goof: When Divya & Evan are first meeting with the patient & begin discussing his symptom(s) Divya quickly requests that Evan accompany her outside for a private conversation. As they go from inside the building to outside, her shirt changes color from royal blue to purple.

  • Season 1 Episode 6: If I Were a Sick Man

  • Goof: Divya drives a black Mercedes SUV. When she and Evan travel across town on a follow up call, a clip of a black Jeep Commander (as seen in the pilot episode) driving down the street is shown instead of the black Mercedes.

  • Goof: You cannot identify a bacterial strain simply by looking at it under a man-made microscope. Bacteria samples, such as pus, are usually stained, cultured, and examined under a 100x lens.

  • Goof: When anesthetizing Kolfax, it is obvious that it is a fake dog model. Also the endotracheal tube is clearly only part of the way inside the mouth.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: TB or Not TB

  • Jill and Divya meet for the first time in this episode.

  • Season 1 Episode 3: Strategic Planning

  • Goof: When Hank removes the tick from the ear, the tick is shown to be relatively small. But more importantly, the tick is shown to be in its natural state, meaning it was NOT engorged with blood. If the tick had been feeding on Kendrick's blood for any length of time, it would have been engorged with blood from feeding. Also since the camera angle is through the magnifying lens looking at the ear straight on, it is improbable that Hank would have been able to see, much less remove the tick without an otoscope with a large ear cone. And why didn't he see it when doing an ear exam during the 'executive physical'?

  • Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

  • Goof: As Dr. Silver's right arm makes its downward arc to inject April with the syringe, Hank grabs Dr. Silver's right wrist to stop him (close-up shot). Then, the camera position immediately changes to a wider shot. Hank's hand is now on the inner portion of Dr. Silver's elbow.

  • Tucker implies to Hank that his great-grandfather Marshall David Bryant II is the inventor of the blender. In reality, the blender was first invented by Stephen J. Poplawski in 1922. Poplawski had his invention patented in 1932.

  • Goof: Hank and the EMS helicopter crew move Tucker up from the rear of the helicopter to load him in. EMS personnel do not ever approach a helicopter from the rear. This puts them out of the sight of the pilot, and more importantly, brings them right by the tail rotor, which can be extremely dangerous.
