The station (except Roy) is entering the fireman's barber shop quartet contest. Johnny explains his dilemma to Dixie, but the problem he has is with Roy, who says it takes a lot of work, whom they'll all side with him. In between practices the firemen have to constantly assist a man who is trying various ways to exercise while on a crash diet, and a woman OD's on sleeping pills.

Did You Know?


In an obvious inside joke, Fireman John Gage asks Registered Nurse, Dixie McCall if she knows anything about singing to which she replies, "A little." In fact, Julie London, the actress who played the part of Dixie, was one of the most popular female vocalists in the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. See more »


When the overdose victim goes into cardiac arrest, the nurse momentarily moves out of the camera view and exposes the woman's bare chest! It was less visible with the old televisions of the time but is clearly visible with the modern restored footage. (The scene is obscured in the syndicated version of the show.) See more »
