Storyline

Firefighter/Paramedics John Gage and Roy DeSoto are each promoted to the rank of Captain in the Los Angeles County Fire Department. After the ceremony, whereupon the reality that they'll no longer be partners hits them, they reminisce about their six years of working together on Squad 51. In flashbacks, they remember some of the most memorable rescues and milestones in their paramedic careers. Afterwards, they vow to remain close friends even if they aren't going to be working in the same station any longer. Written by TorontoJediMaster

The final chapter of the career of Johnny and Roy as paramedics is basically a clip show.Revisiting some of the "greatest rescues" in the series history,accompanied by new background music (a longing,sad tune that plays throughout the 2 hour special),Gage and DeSoto arrive at the site where their promotions will take place and reminisce about their past events,and the people that touched them (Brackett,Chet and the like).Among those promoted are Craig Brice,however not played by the same actor that portrayed him a number of times in the series.(this was highly noticeable,and hit me as a rather cheesy way to fool longtime fans of the show).It was mentioned that once promoted,they could not be paramedics too,so,the EMT life of Johnny and Roy ended with this episode....even though 2 more TV movies aired later that led Gage and DeSoto to view paramedics in action in other locales. To fans of the series,this was a sad ending to such a powerful and informative juggernaut that changed the face of emergency medicine forever.At first I was looking forward to the movie,but after watching it,and letting it sink in,it was actually a cheap way to usher Emergency off the network schedule.Shame on NBC....they deserved the bleak years they got after losing Sanford & Son,and Emergency...those are 2 mistakes that NBC will never live down....they chose to anger loyal NBC viewers all for money.And yet,they lost more than they would have if the series continued.Such a loss....
