It's the "Taming of the Sheik" when Ponch and Jon are put on patrol with a pompous and spoiled young oil sheik studying police science in America.
Did You Know?
The red sports car that Ponch and John chase is a Dino 246. Although built and sold by Ferrari, it was never given the Ferrari name, as it had a V-6 engine, and only cars with V-12 engines could be called a Ferrari. (This policy would change soon after that when they introduced the 308 model.) Also, a sky blue Maserati Merak can also be seen on the highway during the chase scene. See more
The two women (Michelle and Suzanne) come aboard the ship and dry off presumably because they been swimming. But neither woman's hair is wet, not even the blonde's, whose hair is well past shoulder length. See more

I've learned all I care to know. You write citations, the fines get paid, the government gets richer. You know what you are, the both of you? You're nothing more than tax collectors in fancy uniforms.
