John the Magician? by Audrey W.
In the episode ‘Old Engine Cram’, what was once known as a 1932 Dennis Fire Engine is being referenced to as a 1925 Paige Fire Truck. Why?
We Did What? by Audrey W.
In the episode ‘Snakebite’, when Johnny is being transported on the back of the engine after being bitten by a rattlesnake, Captain Stanley holds the microphone to the radio backwards when he talks to LA. Also a helmet is on Chet's head when they leave the scene, but in the middle of transport. hmmmm. . . :o)

Here are a couple of good bloopers. In the episode 'Limelight', Roy goes to take a victim's pulse and *Kevin* discovers he doesn't have a watch on. OOps! But why ruin a take when a person can *fake*? :o) Also, a dog is called by its owners to come outside. Only problem is, it tries to go out the wrong CLOSED door. Ouch!
Watches and Wonders by Audrey W.
**Note** This one below was a blooper on our part. :o) There isn't stock footage where Johnny is on Engine 8 in 'Nuisance' . . .but hey . . .it was still fun to play with this scenario. lol But like a blooper spawns a story idea, a blooper of a blooper. . .well. . .see 'Plausible Denial' by Jill H.. it explains our blooper. :o)
How about this one. It comes from the episode 'Equipment' and
then became stock footage after that. In 'Equipment' when they get the call to
go to the construction site with the heart attack victim, Johnny is shown riding
on the engine. Now look real closely when you watch Nuisance and Station 8
is responding, there'll be Johnny on the engine. ;-)

Limelight Blooper by Terribv
In the episode 'The Mouse', when Station 51 first gets to the apartment fire where the plane crashed into the building, you hear Roy ask Johnny about getting the ladder. Soon after, Hank is telling Roy to grab a line. Captain Stanley requests for a second alarm to be called and there is a ladder set up against a walkway on the building to the side of Hank . Then the ladder is not there, and Roy and Johnny are getting it off the engine. Then Johnny is standing it up where it was before, to the side of Hank.
But. . .? by Audrey W.
In the episode 'Frequency', a guy (Zack) welds himself inside his "Masterpiece" (sculpture). When the guys raise it (by using a rope and pulley) to get the trapped man out, there's no welder inside with him. Makes you wonder where it went.....
Where's The Welder? by Heidi B. and Purry
In the episode 'Details', Johnny is talking to Roy in the locker room about Valerie and her kids. In one part, Roy moves his lips to what Johnny is saying. . .
