While watching an episode of Adam-12 on TV, the station is sent out on a call, forcing Johnny to miss the ending. That call comes from the guard at a building - a thief has become stuck in the ductwork! On the way into the hospital he explains that crawling through the ducts earned him money and high living, and he literally ate his way out of that modus operandi! Brackett and Early separately patch up two men involved in a bar fight, and Brackett later deals with an obnoxious man who went surfing with a broken leg! The two fighters see each other and pick up where they left off, ruining their treatments, and a girl Dixie is sure came in seeking drugs actually has a serious problem. Finally, the entire station responds to a fire at a facility that handles radioactive material, complicating rescue and treatment of the victim.
