Continuity mistake: For the infamous closing scene, a van of drug-runners fire a double-barrelled 12-gauge shotgun straight into the windscreen of Officer Wintergreen's Electra Glide motorcycle, killing him. In the full front view, the gunfire virtually explodes the windscreen, shattering it on all sides all the way to the frame. Camera cuts to a side view and we see Wintergreen topple off as the motorcycle keeps traveling down the road. In this profile shot, the windscreen is no longer exploded, but now has a neat 4-inch hole in it.
Harve Poole: Incompetence is the worst form of corruption.
John Wintergreen: I think I'll go over and check out the Black Canyon.
Motor Officer Zipper Davis, John's Partner: Aww, there ain't no action over there.
John Wintergreen: Zipper, that's the story of your life... there ain't no action, at no time, at no place... I'll see you later. Somebody's gotta be doing something bad somewhere.
John Wintergreen: I'm gonna do for you, in six weeks, what it took someone six months to do for me: nothin'.
