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.

Emergency--now this was "Must See TV", 22 June 2005
Author: johnfuen from San Diego, California, United States

I remember that a few years ago, NBC used "Must see TV" as their network slogan. They should have used it back in 1972. I was about 14 when the show hit the air and I don't think I missed more than a couple of episodes during its network run. Much like Adam 12, the show concentrated on the day to day activities of its main characters, in this case 2 LA county Paramedics, and the hospital staff that helped them save the lives of people in trouble. Just like Adam 12, there was humorous interplay between the younger team member, Johnny Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and the older, senior member Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe).

It was particularly funny to see the ever on the make Gage trying his moves on nurses. In a way, he was the forerunner of Frank "Ponch" Poncherello in his constant attempts on charming single females.
