    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • From CHiPs Online:
        As we see the sail-racer pass Ponch and Jon at the beginning of the show, it's on their side of the road and there are no cars visible. In other shots, the sail-racer is in or close to the high-speed lane and surrounded by cars.

        Speaking of cars, they're moving far below the speed limit.

        Before Jon started to reach down to help the guy off the sail-racer, he took the glove off of his right hand. When they jumped to the close-up, he had the glove on.

        When Jon writes the ticket, he takes both gloves off. When he handed the guy the ticket, both gloves were on.

        In some of the shots of the sail-racer and Ponch and Jon, there's a white VW Beetle visible. As Ponch leaves Jon to write the ticket, we see it drive by twice.

        If Baricza's really slowing down the truck with his brakes, he shouldn't be bouncing on and off the bumper of the truck.

        Why does Getraer wear his helmet in a cruiser?

        When the guy is moving the motors to the sidewalk, the radio handset on one of them falls off and is dragged along the ground. When he sets the motor down, it swings up and slams against the seat.
