    • This episode was made a significant part of the plot in the first season Emergency! episode, "Hang-Up".  The crew of Station 51 is shown watching it on the television at the firehouse, but they have to leave on a call just after Reed is taken hostage.  Paramedic John Gage spends his free time during the rest of the episode calling friends and family trying to find out what happened to Reed.  It's also worth noting that Emergency! series stars Ron Pinkard and Marco Lopez had small roles in this episode.

    Trivia (1)

    • Malloy has been promoted to Senior Officer.
