    • (Tom, as an ice cream man, calling for help on Bonnie's behalf) Tom: LA-15, calling from a disabled unit. Multiple T.C., Santa Fe at 20th. Roll 11-41, 42, and 85, and a unit for 11-84. [Theme starts as he walks away, leaving Bonnie confused]

    • Tom: I lost my star six years ago. Ponch: That's not all you lost!

    Notes (1)

    • This episode contains one of the largest explosions of the whole series.

    Trivia (2)

    • Near the end of the episode, Ponch asks Jon what 5150 means, and Jon responds that it means crazy.  This piece of information shouldn't be unfamiliar to Ponch, as this term was used in season 1's "Moving Violation," when the large man (Rosie Grier) destroys his car during a traffic stop.

    • In the first accident of the show, the jump ramp for the jumping car is in plain sight on the back bumper of a car.
