Synopsis by Hal Erickson
An upcoming Chief's examination has Captain Stanley (Michael Norell) more uptight than usual, due to the "bad blood" between himself and his former commander (William Boyett). Meanwhile, an actor (Leon Ames) who plays a doctor on a popular soap opera checks into Rampart as a patient, driving everyone crazy with his "medical expertise", and bringing along a further burden in the form of his publicity-hungry producer (Tom Williams). Also, a retired doctor (Dabbs Greer) is stuck in an elevator while suffering from an aneurysm. This was the last hour-long Emergency! episode to be filmed, though not the last to be telecast on NBC.
