Storyline

An "old school" captain replaces a vacationing Capt. Stanley and immediately runs into a conflict with the paramedics, as he does not feel they should be practicing medicine. An elderly man falls asleep smoking and sets his chair on fire. Dr. Early and Roy want an apple out of the vending machine and keeps getting oranges, as did Johnny (like he wanted), Dixie bopped her hips unto the vending machine and got an apple. The paramedics fight to keep alive a heart attack victim. A boy with asthma gets trapped in a storm drain. A biker screams at and retaliates Dixie, when he wants a bandage for a head injury, and Dr. Brackett knocks him out after getting punched by the biker. The firemen encounter ethyl bromide fumes when working a fire in a lab. Written by Gary Richard Collins II (brothergaryii@gmail.com)
