Dixie becomes more concerned about Early's operation, after Roy and John exchange words with her. A professional football player is hit hard by his son and suffers a broken ankle, much to his embarrassment. The firemen rescue a boy trapped in his homemade rocket, a woman whose toe is stuck in a bathtub faucet, and worker electrocuted when the basket he's working in slips onto live wires. Dr. Early's operation was a success, and the boys gave their colleague, a thermos of his favorite, Captain Stanley's clam chowder soup.
