The first time I saw the pilot was in syndication and it was a 4th season episode in which Roy and Johnny flashback to the first day they met. It was thrilling to see the whole pilot episode in its unedited entirety when I got it on video through Columbia House and now I have on DVD via the 1st season of Emergency season set.
It is a great episode all the way around especially when Johnny decides he wants to give up being a fireman because he didn't get the man to the hospital in time to save him and Roy talks him out of it. Also was when Dr. Brackett at first is very adament on his stand about the paramedic program.
There is also some instancies in this episode that Dr. Brackett and Nurse McCall were more than doctor and nurse and that both had romantic feelings for each other. There is another episode(Boutilsm) where briefly they fight in the coffee
room at the hospital where Brackett argues with McCall about the school nurse program and then when he goes to her apartment and finds out that she burns the dinner. Unforunately after this, no other time were their romance even mentioned or touched upon.
Emergency is a super drama all the way and hopefully the rest of the seasons plus the TV movies come out on DVD.
