Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: After the scaffolding/sniper incident as the whole company is leaving the scene, the dispatcher asks the captain for their status. He tells the dispatcher that both the engine and the squad are available. At the very least one of the paramedics still has to ride back with the victim to Rampart while the other paramedic follows in the squad. They wouldn't be available for however long it took to get the victim back to Rampart and turned over to the doctors.

    • When seen from behind, the drunk's head is bandaged, but when seen from the front, it is not.

      When Johnny puts the canvas up for cover on the scaffold, the sniper shoots maybe twice more in the scene because the police are already on the other roof, yet later, Chet comments that the canvas was like Swiss cheese!!

      When Gage and DeSoto left the hospital to go to the fire at the house they didn't have on their turnout coats but when they got there they had them on.

      When Johnny and Roy respond to the fuel leaking into the waterline in their shirt sleeves, miraculously, as they pull up to the house, they have their turncoats on. That would be hard to do (especially for Roy driving) since they usually carry them in the side compartment of the squad!

      They left behind drug box on the sniper rescue.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Roy: Alright why don't we call it a daw.
      Johnny: A draw! What are we doing now picking sides. The irish verses the indian's.
      Roy: Why are you picking on me for.

    • Chet: (after Johnny talks about his point on the movie) Aww I get it not Johnny, you better watch it that indian blood of your is begining to boil.
      Johnny:Yeah and I may revert back and go after your skalp, starting with your uper lip.

    • Chet: I'm part indian too u know.
      Johnny: Really, let me guess. Your grandmother was a young indian princess.
      Chet: Yeah how did you know.
      Johnny: It's what we indian's call white folk royalty syndrome.

  • NOTES (1)

    • *This is the first episode of Emergency! where the then-new technology of the Hurst Jaws of Life hydraulic spreader tool is featured. This revolutionary tool used at the opening car wreck scene, and ones of similar design by other manufacturers, are now carried by nearly every fire department and rescue squad who performs vehicle extrications.

      * The diner where the kid gets his finger caught in the gumball machine is the same one that has a girl injured by a soda bottle, and later suffers a natural gas explosion in the following episode, "Saddled".

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Hot Dog Stand owner refers to the boy as "Little Dillinger." John Herbert Dillinger (June 22, 1903 �" July 22, 1934) was a bank robber in the Midwestern United States during the early 1930s.
