The paramedics rescues a woman who suffers a heart attack, while the elevator is stuck and the brake drum fails.

A man is injured in his junkyard. An industrial accident takes place at a railroad yard. With the help of Dixie, and before Nurse Walters smiles in front of both Dixie and Dr. Brackett, they all take care of a man with a pulmonary embolism.

Dixie dropped the ball
24 June 2013 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

In the early scene in which Brackett is on the call w/ squad 51 and things are tense, we see the student nurse looking up at him worshipfully and standing about one foot away from him. Brackett moves from the EKG (?) machine back to the phone and bumps into Nurse Walters. At THAT POINT, Dixie should have stepped in and physically moved the girl away, but instead she just sat there and watched. Then Brackett bumped into the girl AGAIN, and AGAIN Dixie did nothing. She's the head nurse in the ED, so it's up to her to ensure that things run smoothly, and that includes not intentionally allowing the doctor-in-charge to get ticked off. But that's exactly what happened, and what Dixie allowed to happen. The result? Brackett lost his cool and yelled at Nurse Walters, thereby making her even more nervous and continuing the cycle of disaster.

Elsewhere, I don't know how Chet got the date with Gage's stalker Cynthia, but he was out of his mind to allow her to come into the station to meet "the guys." (And btw, I see that Johnny is already starting his habit of having some fixation to obsess about each week. I had hoped to at least get out of Season 1 before those started, but.. I guess not.) :-(
