Chet (aka "The Phantom Bomber") nails Johnny with a number of practical jokes, for which Johnny later gets his revenge. A child is stuck in a tree house (with the tree burning underneath) and is rescued by Johnny; the girl's widowed mother takes an interest in him, all the while, Dixie takes care of her, who also has slight burns. An elderly man and frequent visitor to Rampart, "Old Bill," visits the girl. Dixie, Drs. Brackett and Early think "Old Bill" is a hypochondriac until Roy and John find him unconscious in his home with septic shock. Johnny and Roy help a moaning man after his wife gives him Dieffenbachia sap to shut him up, a gas station attendant with a perforated ulcer, a young boy who swallows ant poison and later dies--his mother thought he was just trying to "get attention"--and three men stuck after a bulldozer accident.

Mike Stoker must be psychic. He went to the map and zeroed in on the location of the unknown rescue before the dispatcher announced it. See more
We are told that Dieffenbachia sap has no ill effects other than loss of voice. This is incorrect as the sap can also cause irritation and swelling of the tongue and throat that may lead to suffocation. Contact with the eye may cause conjunctivitis or "pink eye". The juice of this plant also contains strychnine. See more
