While Dixie reaches a college graduate from San Francisco, Roy & John lecture a frequent caller on the dangers of constantly calling them because she's lonely, then respond to a woman who mixed ammonia with bleach and inhaled poisonous chloramine vapor. Paula Slayton returns to give John a Yorkie pup, keeping a promise made to him for caring for her dog while she was hospitalized; Boot and the pup engage in a wild chase around the fire station, resulting in Captain Stanley deciding the station can only have one mascot. Dr. Brackett asked specifically for these lab reports, when the lab is busy, hence, he has a violent temper. The firemen assist an elderly couple trapped in their home...by tumbleweeds. The catatonic patient receives an injection from his friend and he responds...by jumping out a window onto a ledge...and nearly kicks Roy off onto the parking lot until he is tranquilized.
