Roy is not looking forward to the annual visit from his mother-in-law. The paramedics assist two victims of an auto accident. Drs. Brackett and Early both argue about attending a convention in Acapulco; Dixie must encourage Dr. Brackett to go there with Dr. Early. An elderly man suffers stomach pains from drinking an elixir made from 50% alcohol, who refuses to listen to Dr. Early's orders, until both he (Early) and Dixie had told him to do exactly as he said. A candy striper carelessly places a bottle of alcohol above a clock radio which spills out, and the ensuing fire sends the patient in the room into respiratory arrest. A boy's model rocket sparks a house fire, with the dispatch process shown in some detail.
