A pretty female newspaper reporter is convinced that the fire department caters to male chauvinism. The squad gives the reporter a ride along where they help a man who is trapped in his car with live power lines across the hood. Later, a run finds an embarrassed man trapped naked in a folded up sofa bed, then a bombed building has two victims trapped inside. A man is found with his hand caught in a garbage disposal. Meanwhile at Rampart, Drs. Early and Brackett work on a young boy who has eaten poison hemlock.
