Early in Audit there's a minor subplot where Gage and DeSoto, driving back from the hospital, are waved down by a woman running into the street. They follow her into the parking lot of a small shopping center where she insists they rescue a toddler, wrapped in a blanket from the back seat of a locked automobile. A crowd of women have gathered around the car, but nobody knows who the mother is or what store she's gone into. One woman is certain the child has been on the back seat for at least an hour. Spurred on the the demands of the crowd, Johnny uses a coat hanger to pop the lock and the women quickly disperse, leaving the paramedics with a very unhappy toddler.

At this point, the mother comes ambling out to the car with her hair in curlers and a yellow plastic wrap around her shoulders. She gives Johnny and Roy a piece of her mind for breaking into her car and yells at them for frightening her child. They back away, without getting a chance to explain but appear abashed and apologetic.

It's surprising how well Emergency has held up for more than 35 years now but this is a situation that would play out very differently today. Leaving children unattended in cars has led to criminal charges and the need to convince parents to stop using an automobile as some sort of playpen remains.
