Journalist Christy Todd is assigned to cover Squad 51's rescues, and has an immediate dislike to John's (and many of the other firemen/male doctors') chauvinistic demeanor toward her, after Dixie recognizes most of John's rude personality. The journalist also observes the team save a trapped man under stuck under live power lines, a man trapped in a sofabed, another man, whose arm is stuck in a garbage disposal, and another man trapped in a bombed building, during which Roy has to rescue an injured John before the building explodes. The doctors treat a boy poisoned by wild hemlock and a girl addicted to drugs. After a nurse who failed to follow Dr. Brackett's instructions, he vehemently fired her, who himself brought that on to Dixie, hearing mistakes that kill people, which led her into calming Brackett down.

Did You Know?


When Station 51 is called to the building with a bomb in it, there are other stations responding, yet only Station 51's S.C.U. tone can be heard. The S.C.U. tones for the other stations should also have been audible. See more »

Fireman John Gage: With our luck, we're probably gonna have to drive him around.
Fireman Roy DeSoto: Now look. Don't complain. Any publicity this program can get is valuable.
Fireman John Gage: Yeah. We have enough to do on our runs without to playing host to some newspaper guy.

Where is Dick Van Patten?
18 January 2020 | by supermillerfamilydadSee all my reviews

The episode at the end and lists Dick Van Patten - however I have watched the episode several times. I can't find him in it anywhere. Maybe it's listed on wrong episode. Does anyone know?
