Lucille Benson is credited in both the opening and closing credits.
Liam Dunn, the actor who played 94-year-old Amos, was only 59 in real life and died of emphysema less than three months after this episode originally aired.
Continuity Error: Stoker's Cooking: In other episodes, we know that Mike Stoker makes really good spaghetti and really good fried chicken. In this episode, it is implied that he is a bad cook.
Location Within Rampart--there is a dental clinic on the 3rd floor per lit up number in the elevator.
Possible Procedural Error made by fire fighters--in case of a potential fire, they would not use the elevators.
As the engine is leaving the station for the final call you can clearly see 2 fireman holding on to the back of the truck. A very rare occurrence on this series
When the dispatcher sends Station 51 to the studio for the girl trapped on the wire, he says "Time Out 11:20". The clock on the display in front of him clearly shows "11:44".
Capt's reply "Texas City," when told about the ammonium nitrate is a reference to the Texas City diaster of 1947. The explosion was heard as far as 150 miles away. The offical death toll was 581.
The actor who played Eddie the incorrigible child is the oldest brother of Family Ties star Tina Yothers.
In the rescue of the man from the fire, they treated him with a burn pack. Before they just used sterile sheets over the patient.
When Dixie agrees to take Eddie off of Roy's hands, he warns her to keep him away from the dogs. She doesn't have dogs, she has cats. This established in the story line from Mascot.
As far as Johnny buying the house. None of paperwork and legalities could be done in the one or two days they were off. It takes more time than that for loan approval, home inspection, and other details to be finalized.
Dr. Early tells Dixie to get treatment room 1 ready, yet when they arrive at the hospital, she tells them to take the man to treatment room 6.
Also a box styled ambulance arrives on the scene to transport the patient, but at the hospital emergency entrance it is a suburban styles ambulance parked beside the squad.
Michael Norell's last name is spelled incorrectly during the closing credits.
On the last run of the episode everybody is already in the trucks rolling while the dispatcher is still giving the address for the call. Also the captain appears to have a piece of paper in his hand while climbing into the truck like he would if he already had the address written down.
When they're at the scene of the bride and groom, where all the water is comming out of the hydrant, when Marco got the water shut off and Chet opens the car door and all the water comes out. This is the mistake of the writers when Cap says, " Well, let the DWP guys come out and fix this" here's where the writers are wrong. It's NOT the DWP. It's the DPW and it stands for The Department of Public Works.
Detective Crockett is at Station 51 and tells Johnny and Roy that the old man was hit by the squad at approximately 10:45AM, and that school children were witnesses. What were these kids doing on a street corner at that time of the morning (all the kids were older than kindergartners)? While Crockett is at the station, Station 51 gets sent to the scene of a car accident, where the couple involved are going to a wedding in which "half the town" is attending. Does this mean that the children are going to school on Saturday, or is this huge wedding on a weekday?
In reality, Johnny and Roy would not have been allowed to see the man they allegedly hit with the squad while the investigation was on-going.
Chet: The Trundle Bunny Baby Layette?! I've been licking stamps for three months for a bunch of diapers?
Chet Kelly is understandibly mad at Jonny for trading in the station's eight books of Green Stamps for a baby gift instead of the expected barbeque grill. "Green Stamps" were a promotional program created by S&H (Speery & Hutchinson) where retailers would purchase trading stamps to give out to their customers with every store purchase. The more customers visited a store and collected stamps, the greater gifts they could trade the stamps in for with S&H. You could trade in stamps for pretty much anything that you could negotiate with S&H. The promotion has gone virtual now with Greenspots.com, but the company will still take any old stamp books you have laying around.
As they are toned out for their second run of the episode, Roy is buttoning his shirt. The shirt is not tucked in. At the scene upon exiting the truck it's suddenly tucked in.

70s, not for the faint of heart, hospital backdrop, high stake situations, for the nostalgic
