Something a little different
3 July 2013 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

Along with the previous episode, Peace Pipe, this episode (Saddled) is a little different than the 'usual' Emergency! show. Peace Pipe got a little political with Johnny talking about the Indian (i.e., Native American) situation, and this one goes in a different direction.

The two main story lines are about a little boy with a head injury which leads Brackett to suspect something even more serious, and a nun who is seriously injured and trapped inside a crashed bus. Most of the boy's story takes place at the hospital, but it's the scene of the bus crash that forms the crux of the story. Roy is the first one to assist her, and while John is busy getting the bus passengers (a bunch of kids) evacuated, Roy stays at Sister Barbara's side doing what he can for her until they can get the equipment in there to extract her. (And, this being TV and all, of course the nun is young and very attractive. Not that that has anything to do with Roy's care of her, of course, but as I said, it's TV, so naturally she has to be pretty.) Anyway, she's a brave soul and asks the boys to retrieve her purse for her and give her her rosary. Then she asks Roy to read her a prayer from her prayer book. "I'm not Catholic," he protests. "I'm sure God won't mind," she replies. (Of course!!!!) Roy reads the prayer, which is really quite a touching scene, and once she's extricated out of the bus she later asks Roy to accompany her to the hospital. You can see he's quite moved by this encounter, and the viewer almost expects Roy to follow up with some comment about stopping by a church at some point.

However (probably wisely), the episode ends with the usual silly banter back at the station, with Gage bearing the brunt of it. All in all, it's pretty interesting episode, and not quite run-of-the-mill.
