Story: A sick lady with a monkey provides the key to a mysterious, highly contagious, and deadly virus that strikes several people including Brackett and Johnny. Roy and Johnny rescue a boy with an inner ear problem from a tree house. The station responds to a call where a man is injured on a scaffold.

Goofs:  (1) Watch for the disappearing, reappearing thermometer in Johnny's mouth. Early takes it out and reads it then it reappears in a different shot. (2) When they get Johnny over the top of the building after he collapses, Roy goes down to get him. His helmet is on when he is coming up the side of the building, but then when he is on the roof the next time they show him it is off his head. I don't think that he takes it off because, you can see his hands and he is taking off his gloves. (3) In the scene where Dr. Early is taking Johnny's temperature they are trying to keep him cool with the wet cloth on his head. So, why do they have him all covered up with blankets?? Later on he's on a cooling blanket (the blue blanket with the tubes sticking out) but in this scene it's just regular blankets.
