Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sharon Gless makes one of her first TV appearances as Sheila Thomas, an undercover police deputy investigating a series of thefts at Ramparts. Assisting Sheila in her inquiries is paramedic John Gage (Randolph Mantooth, who is quite smitten by the lady. Elsewhere, an old man (Paul Fix) suffering from dementia is trapped in a burning house; a grandfather (J. Pat O'Malley) is injured while showing his grandson how to operate a model rocket; and a boat thief is trapped on a drilling-platform mechanism. Finally, the station mascot "Boots" reappears just as mysteriously as he'd disappeared a few episodes back--and the dog apparently has a new agenda.
