Jamie is pleased to be teamed up with a friend from the academy whom he can teach a lot about human nature. The Reagans soon realize a bank robber who, unlike his accomplices gets trapped and takes a hostage, knows police lingo and procedure too well not to be a former colleague. They work out he was once on Frank's top-secret SCI team.

There are three versions of the NYPD patch used in this episode. The first - seen on a squad car outside the bank 22 minutes in - is the real NYPD patch. The second - seen on an ESU officer's sleeve as Frank arrives a few seconds later - is the version most commonly used in the first 2-3 seasons that doesn't say "City Of New York" and instead goes with just "New York" on the sides of the department logo. The third and final one - seen on another squad car a further few seconds later - replaces the "Police Department" on the top of the real NYPD patch with "City Of New York". See more
Henry tells a story about calling an ambulance for Frank when he was a toddler. Ambulance services as we know it with highly trained EMTs didn't really start until the 1970s which is well after when Frank would have been a toddler.
Also, 911 didn't start until 1968 so Henry would have had to directly call an ambulance service. Due to the lack of regulation, it is highly unlikely that ambulances at that time would need "authorization" to go to a certain hospital as that is also a relatively new concept.
Many hospitals did have their own ambulance services which would only transport to their hospital; however, Henry should have known which hospital's ambulance service he was calling. It would be clearly noted in the phone book. Realistically, he would have just driven Frank himself back then rather than call an ambulance. See more
