Episode Recap

From CHiPs Online: When two motorbikers steal a camera bag, Ponch and Bobby chase them and catch them cornered in a parking garage. When Ponch returns the bag, he is asked to be their "Barcelona Man". When Ponch and Bobby pull over a car for an expired registration, it rolls over a cliff. They decide to forget about the ticket.

After the briefing, Ponch does some modeling. He learns that one model, Sheila, has a problem and wants to talk to her about it. On patrol, Ponch and Bobby catch a suspected diamond thief. When Ponch and Bobby encounter slow traffic, they learn that the holdup is caused by a picture of Ponch as "The Barcelona Man" on a billboard. Ponch soon gets called downtown to stop a jumper - Sheila. Ponch talks her inside.

Back at Central, Bobby learns that the insurance company never heard from the guy whose car went off the cliff. When they go to investigate the accident, they find the wrecked car is gone. They figure out where the car went and find the thieves there.

Back on patrol, they stop a truck with a woman giving birth in the back. Ponch delivers the baby as Bobby watches. When the paramedics arrive, Ponch and Bobby ride off. They arrive at the photo studio and try to arrest the photographer for child pornography. He runs off and escapes in a van with Ponch's picture on the side. Ponch and Bobby chase after him and arrest him after he jumps and rolls his van.

Back at Ponch's apartment, everyone is watching Ponch's new TV commercial.
