* The episode where a dog named Chewy was saved from a burning building. In the reenactment, when the room fills up with smoke, Chewy lies underneath a wagon after being unable to find a way out.

* Along the same lines as above, according to his niece on YouTube, Deputy Duane Fuquay from "911 Baby Sitter Prowler" was terribly shaken by the incident, and took his own life five years later for unrelated reasons.
* The responding officer in "911 Christina's Call" gets choked up in his talking head interview as he recalls the sheer brutality of the victim's stabbing, and the fact that her children witnessed it.
