Yep, I agree!, 16 July 2012
Author: Michelle Palmer from United States

Everyone think there's something weird about this day! The first call of the day, Roy and Johnny have to rescue a woman who fell into a tree. The last rescue of the day, Johnny hurts his ankle when he rolls down a hill while trying to rescue a man in a car - who's drunk! Put lots of other strange things in the middle of this, and you get one weird Wednesday!

Johnny sees it from the very beginning, but it takes Roy a bit longer. I think that probably the woman int he tree is the highlight of the episode, but as always the entire episode is quite humorous! Roy is even able to correct a couple wrong addresses the dispatcher gives, which perplexes Johnny even more!
