[show]Martin Milner (Officer Pete Malloy) and Kent McCord (Officer Jim Reed), from another Jack Webb series, "Adam-12", occasionally showed up in cameos at Rampart Hospital. After appearing in the "Emergency" series premiere, they later appeared in another first-season "Emergency" episode. However, this second appearance is in an installment of their own TV show "Adam-12", which the Station 51 crew watch on the firehouse TV.
