While assigned to duty at a weigh station, Ponch and Jon go after a hijacked truck.
Did You Know?
When speaking about the boat, Jon calls Getraer Captain, and Getrear says that reminded him of his Navy days. Ponch reminds Getrear that he was only a Petty Officer 3rd Class. The same year that CHiPs ended (1983), Robert Pine
would play Navy Lieutenant Thomas Sullivan Magnum III on Magnum, P.I.: Home from the Sea
(1983). See more
Three characters use improper radio designators. CHP radio designators are by the city and then the frequency designator. For example, LA 15 was a frequency assigned to the CHP Central office. Newhall used 78. When the unnamed patrol officer calls in seeing the stolen blue truck, he incorrectly says "Newhall 78 David." When Jon uses the radio after leaving the weigh station, he incorrectly says "Newhall 7 Mary 3". When Vogt uses the radio to call for the rescue unit, he incorrectly says "LA 78 S1". The patrol officer should have said "Newhall 78" and his unit number and alpha designator, such as 7 David. Jon should have said "Newhall 78, 7 Mary 3" while Vogt should have said "Newhall 78, S1".
