    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Code I Count
        Johnny Gage--pulled deltoid muscle

      • Goof: Dr. Brackett asks Johnny if he has started an IV on the stabbing victim. No IV could have been started without a Doctor ordering it, and this is the first time a Doctor has talked to Johnny in regards to the stabbing victim.

      • Goof: The first rescue is a fire. On the status board, the marker for fire is still on 51 instead of at scene.

      • Goof: On the first rescue when the pregnant lady suddenly gasps and touches her stomach, Roy informs the hospital that contractions have started without checking with the patient. It could have been other things such as the baby kicking as well.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Dr. Early: I understand your friend here won't be of much help to you for a while.
        Johnny Gage: Listen, I'm skinny but I'm tough.
        Roy DeSoto: So is Chet Kelly's fried chicken.

      • Johnny: (about the old Native American recipe for his sandwich) They used to eat this stuff all winter long, they were in fantastic shape. You know how they used to outrun deer, and run around in the snow half-naked – it was because of this stuff right here. They also lived to be fantastic old ages, too, in fact the guy who gave me the recipe for this sandwich lived to be 114 years old himself. And he'd still be alive today if he wasn't hit by a bus coming back from his girlfriend's house at three o'clock in the morning.

      • Chet: What's with the book, John?
        Johnny: Nothing that would interest you, Chet.
        Chet: What is it, a pre-teen sex manual?
