  • Trivia

    • In regards to hot dog stand burning, Capt. Stanley does not say it burned "last year". The correct statement is "last shift". He then shows the log book where calls are recorded.

    • GOOF: At the very end of the episode after Roy has given in and finally decides to invest with the rest of the station, Captain Stanley says that the hot dog stand burned down "last year" instead of saying that it burned down "last night"

    • Johnny says they have 18 guys at the station. With 6 men to a shift, that gives them 3 shifts. A Shift, B Shift, and C Shift. That also is a one day on, two days off type of schedule.

    • In almost every episode, they have milk in at least a quart size carton and pour it into glasses. In this episode, Roy and Johnny drink milk from half pint cartons while they eat sandwiches.

    • The younger fans who discovered Emergency on TV Land and/or DVD should take note of the prices for the food items at Davey's Dogs, the hot dog stand the guys inspect. Those were the prices back in the 70s.
