Storyline

John comments on how weird things were going to happen on his shift, and he is proven right as they have to rescue a parachutist stuck in a tree, an obese man collapses while jogging, an 80 year old woman sprains her ankle while dancing at her birthday party--so the guests go to the hospital to resume the parts--a man who cannot stop hiccuping, a boy who tries to freeze himself to preserve his body, a female golfer bitten by a rattlesnake, a prostitute bringing her john in after he suffers a heart attack, an old foreign sailor who wouldn't explain something was wrong, because he can't speak English, leading Dixie and Dr. Early to convince the female interpreter to really find out what was wrong, and finally rescuing a drunk driver, during which John is injured.

Yep, I agree!

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!
