Sharon: No, they're Toni's invention.
Officer Francis Llewellyn 'Ponch' Poncherello: Great, Toni. How did get that flavor?

"CHiPs: Pilot (#1.1)" (1977)
Officer Jon Baker: [after Ponch storms out after being reprimanded] Listen, Sarge, I don't want this to sound like a p.r. job, but I mean if you took a closer look at his jacket, maybe... maybe you'd find some citations and recommendations. I mean, the guy's put some righteous criminals behind bars.
Sgt. Joseph Getraer: Look, you've had to babysit him for six months now. What is it? His temper? No presence of mind? What?
Officer Jon Baker: I dunno. Sometimes the guy overdoes a role. Sometimes he doesn't know when to back off. Weird things happen to him. Ya gotta be there. He can't see 'em comin' and once they're there he can't stop them.
Sgt. Joseph Getraer: Yeah, well, maybe I should've partnered him with an exorcist.
