Right before Melanie tears her pants, a freeway sign for the Golden State Freeway is visible. Ponch tells Melanie that she can change her pants at his apartment, which is only a couple of miles away, but Ponch lives in Marina del Rey, which is no closer than 15 miles from the Golden State Freeway (US-101 and I-5).
