  • This episode is one of my favourite ones. Funny but also serious.

    11-99 Officer needs help is one of the best episodes I know. The fourth season is in my eyes also one of the best.

    The theme of the new electric stuff to help saving officers life is an interesting idea although it´s not perfect. We can see that in the scene where Grossie tries to catch a dog and fells down. A few minutes later the whole rescue stuff arrives. What I laughed watching this scene. Or the scene with Baricza caught in the belly of a ship. Always talking to the \\\"Central\\\" but not getting any answer back as the radio doesn´t work in a metal cover.

    The second story line with Ponch and the \\\"not well talking woman\\\" shows that Poncherello not only has eyes but also a heart.

    If you can watch this episode. It´s guaranteed no waste of time.

      Grossman: Uh, yes sir. As a motor officer, I'm concerned about the distribution of additional weights, as a factor affecting the centrifugal forces, which bear on the inherent instability of a single-track vehicle.
      Instructor: (brief pause) See me after class.

    • (After hearing the lousy dispatcher over the radio) Ponch: We have to listen to her all day?
