Saving lives
19 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The highlight of this episode was the beginning when our heroes had to go help a man who'd been trapped under his tractor. They had trouble reaching Rampart, but lucky for them an old-fashioned doctor happened by. He helped them get the man stabilized before becoming a patient. So, the boy's went to work on the doctor, starting an IV and everything without ever contacting Rampart. I suppose that even though the doctor was having some heart trouble, he was still conscious enough to approve what they were doing. The doctor continues to make himself the star of the show throughout the episode.

Meanwhile, Johnny is chosen as a model for some fireman ads. But later we find out that he may not make as good a model as they once thought because...he doesn't look like a fireman! But guess who was chosen in his place???

Yep, it's going to be a long night for the firemen!
