Storyline

Dr. Early becomes a patient as He is diagnosed with a heart condition and undergoes a bypass, after fixing Station 51's truck. Dixie becomes more concerned about Early's operation, after Roy and John exchange words with her. A professional football player is hit hard by his son and suffers a broken ankle, much to his embarrassment. The firemen rescue a boy trapped in his homemade rocket, a woman whose toe is stuck in a bathtub faucet, and worker electrocuted when the basket he's working in slips onto live wires. Dr. Early's operation was a success, and the boys gave their colleague, a thermos of his favorite, Captain Stanley's clam chowder soup. Written by Gary Richard Collins II (brothergaryii@gmail.com)

I thought that was Nick!

Another great episode of Emergency! with some really great guest stars. Well some of them weren't even stars ... did you catch Nick Nolte! Yep and he looks so young in this episode. I love it when you see current stars in early roles.

I really enjoyed the rest of the episode as well. The guy on the high tension wire was sort of funny. Not the accident, but when Roy comes up and starts to ask the other guy about whether the electric lines were turned off. Roy barely got out two words and the other guy was like, yes, yes, just look at my guy up there. I know it shouldn't be funny, but it was to me.
