When Ponch speaks to the PVC truck driver, he mentions the fictional soap opera "The Troubled World" and Bob and Carey. On the immediate prior episode, CHiPs: Name Your Price (1977), Bob, played by Tom Hallick, and Carey, played by Jaime Lyn Bauer, were stopped by Jon and Ponch for a registration violation, yet Ponch made no mention of this to the truck driver.
The PVC pipes could not have fallen from the truck as shown, since the forward and middle straps were tight when the driver pulled on them. Pulling the rear one loose as he did could not make them fall off the truck.
