Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: In the intro, four SCU tones are sounded for the factory fire. Since 7 units are summoned to the fire, with 5 of them being in Station 10, there should only be a maximum of 3 stations responding to the fire, and therefore 3 SCU tones.See more »
Quotes:
Dr. Joe Early:[Talking to Brackett after Gage and DeSoto were forced to treat victims on their own, after Dixie was injured] That woman with the busted fibula, she's coming out of shock now. She might have stayed there if it hadn't been for those two ninety-day Kildares. I looked over Ferguson's shoulder in the cast-room, the immobilization of that guy with the broken legs. Pete could have phoned it in. No distal blood problems, a piece of cake. And then there was Dixie. I don't know, Kell...

show that made ER and CSI possible, 7 March 2006
Author: omallemplif-1 from United States

Although I don't remember the first run of Emergency!, I remember seeing it in syndication from 1976 to 1980. For my friends and I, it was the THE show to watch. I was 8 in 76 and yes I loved this drama. Yes I did like shows like Happy Days and Mork and Mindy and Kotter and Whats Happening! . But this was the first drama show I (and my friends) would stop a backyard whiffle ball game to see. It had ACTION! It had CAR CRASHES!! It had FIRE!! Now as an adult I see that without a show like Emergency and Adam 12, Shows like Hill Street Blues would not have happened, St. Elsewhere and ER would not have happened, Third Watch would not have been and CSI(Vegas, Miami and NY) and Law and Order would not be. I got season 1 of Emergency and am enjoying it as much maybe even more now!
