Plot Overview

Ponch suspects that there's more to the theft of a delivery van than meets the eye, and he's right--the van contained a pair of 'pocket bikes' that a master jewel thief plans to use in an elaborate emerald theft. He seeks out three possible witnesses to the van theft, a female rock band performing nearby, but they're making plans to go on a tour of Hong Kong. After discovering that their new backer has ties to a white slavery ring, Ponch, Bobby and Bruce race to save the girls. At the precinct, Grossman's preparation for an appearance on the game show Million Dollar Question drives everyone crazy.
