Sam restrains his friend while having a seizure and puts a spoon in his mouth to prevent him from "swallowing his tongue." Not only is the swallowing of a tongue an outdated and incorrect myth regarding epileptic seizures it's something a medical doctor like Sam would know about and wouldn't do to a seizing person.

Dr. Sam Beckett: [as Henry, of Daniel] You know, he scared the heck out of me last night. Didn't you?
Daniel Burke: I thought you were Bigfoot.
Roy Brown: Bigfoot? Well, come to think of it, you do kinda look like him, Henry. Except you're a couple feet shorter and you smell worse.
Dr. Sam Beckett: Thanks a lot.
