This is the first and only time that the Bio-Phone's antenna is placed on the outside of the ambulance body instead of on top of the Bio-Phone. It was clearly a plot device to cause them to have no contact with the hospital.
Character Note: Chet Kelly starting wearing a mustache in this episode.
The car that the engine was been pulled out of appears to be a high performance V-8 edition of a 1962 Ford Galaxie, as the crossed flags emblem on the fender signify. But the engine on the hoist, either being pulled out or going in, is a bare bones stock straight
This episode was with the Crown 51. Of all the episodes shown with the Crown 51 the only episode that it was shown getting a supply line was in Hang-up. It wasn't until the Ward La France 51 that engine 51 used supply lines regularly.
Goofs: When Roy is in the bunk room and wakes up thinking about everything, he puts on his bunker pants and walks out. If you watch carefully, while he is putting on the pants, the front right suspender comes off and is dangling behind him. As we watch him walk through the door from behind, the suspender is still hanging, but when the camera cuts to a view of him coming through the door from the front, the suspender is reattached! Goof: Stoker and Lopez pull on the chain to hoist the engine then go and help remove the victim. The engine did not fall after they let go of the chain. Goof: The guy in ambulance is supposedly choking (coughing but his body is not moving. Goof: When Roy stops the Squad to get the victim (Bull) and he looks out the window where's Gage? It also looks like Roy is sitting on the passenger side.
Goof: And when the squad is bringing in the man after the engine fell on him, why is the man in backwards? When did stretchers start putting the patient's head pointing to the window?
Goof: EKG on patient (Doctor) he's not patched in and the monitor shows V fib after being shocked, and they all just stare at it. Shouldn't he be shocked again?. Goof: Roy & Johnny leave behind the stokes when they rescue the guy gored by the bull. Goof: When the call goes out for the house fire at the end station 51 gets called out with engines 95, 105 and truck 107. However at the actual scene none of the other stations that got called out show up. Engines 800 and 801 are shown obviously not having been dispatched. Also squad 51 rolls up to the house while engine 51 stops up the street presumably to get a supply line. HOWEVER when engine 51 starts up again, engine 127 is shown from the pilot movie with the hose flopping off the back and as engine 51 is shown again rolling up to the front of the house there is NO HOSE flopping off the back.
Implausibility--Realistically, two people robbing a house probably would not be wearing a dress, heels, and a suit.
Student Nurse Sharon Walters was a pom pom girl for Washington Junior High.
Ronnie Troup: Daughter of Bobby Troup
Goof: Gage and DeSoto respond to the call where the guy who robbed the house had a heart attack. Note that the Squad is different. It is an earlier Dodge (prior to 1970), probably belonging to Squad 209, Squad 18, or Squad 59. It can't be 36, because the original Squad 51 was Squad 36. The grill plate and the sheet metal is different on the cab.
The Adam-12 episode the guys are watching in this episode is an actual episode of the series entitled "Ambush" and originally aired November 10,1971. Jack Webb also created the show.
Series stars Marco Lopez and Ron Pinkard both also appeared in the Adam-12 episode "Ambush".
Goof: Reed and Malloy were guests on the Emergency pilot(The Wedsworth-Townsend Act) and the cast of Emergency were guest on Adam-12 (Lost and Found) AFTER this episode aired.
John Smith, who appears as Station 51's captain for the final two episodes of the first season, co-starred with Robert Fuller in the series "Laramie". They were also best friends from 1956 until Smith's death in 1995.
There is conflicting information whether John Smith's character replaced Captain Hammer, or was actually supposed to BE Captain Hammer. The credits that appear at the end of this episode list the character name as "Captain Hammer", but in the next episode it's listed as just "Captain". The character's name was not spoken or otherwise revealed during either episode.
Goof: When Johnny and Roy are leaving Rampart after freeing the burglar, Johnny wants to go back and ask some patients about Adam-12, and Roy reminds him that visiting hours are over. But later, when Johnny and Roy are back at Rampart getting treated for radiation, you hear a woman over the PA system say that visiting hours are now over.
Goof: Where did Roy get the street clothes from after he re-showers at Rampart (the very end of the episode)?
Goof: When Brackett first learns of a possible radiation case, he tells Dixie to prepare three beds. Dixie says that there's only one patient, and Brackett reminds her that if "they" (Johnny and Roy) have to go in after him, they'll be exposed, too. That's fine, but why don't any of the other guys who help rescue the guy have to go to Rampart to get checked out? Okay, I guess you could say it's because they weren't exposed as long as Johnny and Roy were. But... Brackett didn't know that would happen when he ordered the 3 beds.
Goof: When Gage leaves the "hot room" he has no gloves on. When he's out of the room talking to the captain they're back on.
Goof: Johnny drops his helmet on Chet's head (maybe on purpose).
Goof: In the Adam 12 episode Johnny is stuck on is "Ambush". Look for Ron Pinkard (Dr. Morton) as a police officer in the actual Adam 12 episode. And of course, there's always the little problem of the cross-over Adam 12 episode that had Roy and Johnny (as well as Rampart staff) in it.
Goof: When the guys are going to go in to free the scientist in the room full of radiation, they are all outside discussing how they are going to go in the room. It will be in teams of two at a time for 6 minute intervals with Cap. Hammer and Kelly being first, then Marco and Mike while John and Roy are last. When Captain Hammer and Kelly come out and Mike and Marco go in, Captain Hammer says " Ok Take off you two." Then Kelly is the only one that goes outside to be decontaminated. When Captain Hammer makes that statement Mike and Marco are already in the room so who is he directing this to. Also why doesn't he go out to be decontaminated when he just spent 6 minutes in a room full of radioactivity.
Mike Stoker has a Dune Buggy.
The student nurse Sharon, who is suddenly all thumbs around Dr. Brackett has appeared in several episodes and worked perfectly with Dr. Brackett prior to this.
Roy and Johnny start an IV on the patient but no one rides in with him even though it's made clear in several episodes that paramedics are supposed to stay with the patient once they start an IV.
I tell one of my favorite reasons for watching Emergency is all the goofs you find in it. like a ford ambulance would show up but when you get to the hospital sene it would show and old chevy ambulance backing up. the same cop would always be at every sene. my girlfriend is actually a big fan of this show she would get mad when i would point things like this out. I have to say I otherwise enjoyed the show though.
After the rescue of the guy in the freezer they show a squad going down the street but it isnt Squad 51 (Submitted by Michelle member of Mantooth Minutes).
