Going by the 6 seasons Emergency! was on the air, with each season representing a full year, what would be each character's most memorable year? What might be his/her best? Worst?
For Kel Brackett I'd say Season 4. In
season 4 he & Dixie had to deliver a baby in a restaurant on their lunch hour.
Then, he had to defend Dix from that biker the old fashioned way. Then he
watched his own father get operated on. To top it off, he had to operate on a
baby goat. Now that's an eventful season.
Johnny - most memorable - Season 3 - Because it was the first time (and
only-- *whew!*) he had to treat himself out in the field when the snake bit him.
Also because it was one of the busiest years with *girl problems*.
Roy - most memorable - Season 3 as well. I think like Johnny, he'd remember the time they came close to losing Doctor Early, and it also would mean a lot to him that it was the time he and Johnny bought the old engine together. Plus he would recall the *chair bed* he suffered through at Johnny's place and how he nearly gave up being a paramedic to be an engineer. Also that he nearly lost his partner to a rattlesnake bite.
Captain Stanley - Most memorable -
season 2. It was his first year at Station 51. :o)
Dixie - most memorable - Season 1 -
the paramedic program was just underway and she went with them on calls. Plus
she almost lost her life while on a run with Johnny and Roy. And she saw both a
rough and soft side to Kel Brackett.
Early - most memorable - Season 3 -
Because of his heart surgery
Marco - most memorable - toss up between seasons 4 and 5 - Mostly because those seemed to be the 'years' John Gage talked the guys into more 'adventures' in ideas.
Chet - most memorable - can't pin point any one season. His were about the same with an occasional stand out in each, like with his diet plan, his being a hero in the basket ball game, his great pitching arm (he later screwed up though), his many pranks on Johnny, etc.
Mike - most memorable - Season 3 - he got a new engine to drive. :o)
Brice - Season 6 - he was around more than just one time, so it had to be memorable. :o)
Brackett - most memorable - Season 1 - Mostly because of the paramedic program coming into play and the changes around Rampart from it. And playing a major role in the paramedic training.
Johnny's most memorable season? The
second one. He survived a virus, learned to play numerous musical instruments,
learned a little more about women, and survived a tax audit.
Roy's was season three. He gave up a promotion, helped reclaim a historic engine, attracted women he wasn't married to, and survives a night at his partner's apartment (barely).
Hank's would be season four. He had to deal with his new battalion chief, his nemesis from his days as an engineer and thought he had arthritis that would end his career.
Johnny's season 3. Lots of good Gage
