Story: Johnny agrees that the losing
baseball team at the Fireman's Picnic will pay for the picnic and Chet becomes the
station's only hope when their pitcher breaks his arm. A drunk driver becomes violent
after a car accident, another man is trapped in a car with a tiger, and a man with a
slipped disc is stuck in a waterbed.
Goofs: (1) Repeated spinal injury line
twice--said "coming around" the first time (obviously in error) and said
"moving" the second time (2) Pulse v/s respiration gaff after victim is removed.
(3) What’s going on with that pink blanket on the man who was bitten by the
tiger? (4) Johnny takes the biophone with him in the squad instead of Roy
taking it in the ambulance. (5) When the Jaws of Life are being used to free the
victim from the truck, the jaws are being opened in order to attach the chains, but
footage from the interior of the vehicle shows the steering wheel being raised before the
chains are attached. Next it shows the chains being attached, only to show the same
footage of the steering wheel being lifted. (6) Once again,
Johnnys hair is short in the stock footage but longer later. Wish my hair would
grow that fast. (7) When
Station 51 is responding to the fire at the moonshiner's house, the old Crown engine is
shown following the squad (old stock footage), and not the Ward LaFrance.
