Story: Roy takes care of a divorcee's plants while she is in the hospital. Roy and Johnny assist a man who has breathing problems. A young girl's religious parents prevent necessary treatment. The station responds to a fire in a winery. Dr. Brackett and the paramedics perform backyard surgery on a man with an unexploded grenade in his abdomen.

Goofs:  (1) Johnny is filling the squad's radiator when they get a call, he closes the hood but he never put the radiator cap back on. (2) They defib the guy with the grenade in his gut twice but they don't recharge the defibrillator after doing it the first time! (3) When Engine and Squad 51 pull up to the winery fire, watch Johnny struggle to open his door. It takes some time but he gets it open. (4) It's at the winery fire. Engine 51 pulls up laying a supply line and Captain Stanley tells Chet to pull a 1 1/2". He does so and after a bit Marco comes running up after hooking up the hydrant. Then Captain Stanley asks him to pull a 1 1/2" as well. HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He grabs the reel line instead. It's unmistakable since the 1 1/2", 2 1/2" as well as 3 1/2" hoses are white (at least at the time for L.A. County Fire Department at the time when Emergency aired) The Ward La France engine 51 used RED reel line. I don't know why I didn't ever notice that before. - Jason

Tidbits:  Donald Mantooth - brother of Randolph Mantooth
