Early or late, he's a familiar figure to every policeman on the street. . . Emergencies require his presence for long, exacting hours . . . With somewhere a pause and perhaps the pleasure of a cigarette. The back to his job of serving the lives of others.
The policeman gives the doctor a salute on the street as the doctor parks his car quickly, on his way to a house call in the middle of the night. At the time, having an “MD” license plate let a doctor park almost anywhere (even outside the bowling alley) without fear of getting a ticket. The cigarette is presented as the only moment the doctor has to himself after a long, hard day of helping others.
