Storyline

Two young men dump off a female OD victim at the ER, then run away; further examination showed she was injected with milk. John and Roy gets upset at all the non-emergency calls they get, then see a man faking a back injury for a free ride to the hospital. The paramedics help an ex-Los Angeles Rams player who kicked his TV screen when his old team blew a close game and received an electrical shock. The ER is being visited by administrators, during which time Dixie is swamped with so many issues, including a woman who complains about waiting two hours with a cigarette burn. Roy & John respond to a non-emergency while another squad 15 minutes away is called to a cardiac victim from which Squad 51 is only two minutes away--after responding to the cardiac case the paramedics are involved in a traffic accident in the ambulance en route to Rampart.

Trivia

When Squad 51 arrives at the former football player's house, his daughter says he "used to play for the Rams". She is referring to the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams football team were founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1936, as a member of the original - and short-lived - American Football League. When the AFL folded in 1937, the Rams joined the National Football League, then moved to Los Angeles in 1946. They stayed in Los Angeles until they moved to St. Louis after the 1994 season. Effective for the 2016-17 season they will once again be back in Los Angeles. See more »

Goofs

In one of the stock footage shots of the Squad 51 truck in traffic, an older version of the truck is seen, not the one being used by the show at that time. See more »
