From CHiPs Online:
Just after the title credits, we see a scene shot as if looking through binoculars. If you look through binoculars properly, you see everything in one circle...not two interconnected ones.
(In the opening scene, Ponch and Jon pass by a car club's car)
Ponch: Beautiful, right?
Jon: Couldn't see it, I was blinded by the glare.
Grossman: My uncle is so fat, he can sit around the table all by himself!
