John discovers he's going to be a father... to kittens... when a pregnant stray cat appears on his bed, and Boot the Dog is not happy about the cat being there. The paramedics rescue a family involved in a plane crash; the father dies, the mother and young daughter are injured, and a grizzled junk dealer who got his foot stuck in a bear trap. A stage actress is suffering from tachycardia after getting a bad review of her performance, where Dr. Brackett takes care of her, while Dixie talks to the husband. The firemen assist a child sickened by a gas leak at a school and rescue a man involved in a boating accident. Written by
