Storyline

John makes a bet with Squad 36 that the loser of their baseball game at the firemen's picnic pays for the entire picnic, which angers the firehouse until Chet becomes their pitcher after their regular pitcher breaks his arm. In rescuing a drunk man from a car accident, the man punches John in the nose; who then threw a witty remark to Dixie, whom herself reveals, she threw one at an unruly man. When two more people come into the ER with the same symptoms, the cause is traced to lead poisoning from moonshine; later the man making the illegal brew sets fire to the place and the firemen have to rescue him. The firemen also save a famous car dealer trapped inside one of his cars with a tiger while filming a commercial and a man with back problems stuck in his waterbed.
