Flashbacks And Brent
28 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ponch agrees to try the tight maneuver drill with Officer Brent Delaney. As Brent gets his helmet, Ponch has a flashback to working in a garage with his friend Henry.

After Brent beats Ponch at the drill, Brent admits he graduated from motor school last Friday. Ponch is surprised that he's just two days out of motor school.

At the briefing, Ponch has a flashback to getting chewed out by Getraer at his first briefing. After the briefing, Baker and Poncherello are assigned to alternate being partners with Delaney for a few weeks. Neither Ponch nor Jon seem pleased.

Outside, Jon has a flashback to driving in a cruiser and responding to a dirt bike call. The dirt biker turns out to be Ponch. After Ponch jumps over the cruiser with his dirt bike, Jon chases Ponch down a dirt road. Ponch rides into a ditch and falls off the dirt bike. Jon asks for his license and suggests he wear a helmet in the future.

See Ponch and Jon remember past experiences and deal with Brent in this final episode of the first season of CHiPs.
