Quotes

Harlan: [Watching wistfully as Ponch and Jon ride off] Ah, if I was two inches taller, I would be cracking the bricks with them.
Sgt. Joseph Getraer: Well, look at the flip side, Harlan. If you were two inches shorter, you'd be riding losers at Hollywood Park.

Ponch Becomes A Latino heartthrob
29 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Peaks and Valley,CHP Central gets a new mechanic, Harlan Arliss.Also, Ponch and Jon are accused of improperly moving an accident victim.And later,Jon meets an old friend who tries to convince him that there are better jobs out there than CHP officer.

Then, Ponch introduces Jon to a woman, the one they have seen driving classic cars around the city, who asks him to a disco. That night,they show off their disco techniques with the ladies. When they take a break from the dance floor, a pregnant woman is about to give birth. Ponch takes control while Jon assists. In the world's easiest delivery, she gives birth to a boy. Ponch and Jon enjoy the applause when the DJ announces that they're CHP officers.

This is definitely one of the most enjoyable episodes of TV show of all time during its run from 1977-83.In it,we see the transformation of Ponch from a bumbling CHP officer to that of a Latino macho man.Also,he becomes more of a heartthrob that made the TV show even more popular as compared to the previous season.
