Roller rescuers

It's kind of amazing how available we are to help people outside of our standard crime fighting duties. Even when it comes to recreational activities. There was the time Maureen McCormick (TV's Marsh Brady) casually mentioned that she wished she knew how to roller skate. All four of us (this was when Ralph was still around. R.I.P.) were only too happy to help.
"The ability to remain upright is a very important first step."

Due to the fact that we're experts at all things boogie-related, especially roller, Maureen and her two friends were skating like champions in mere minutes...
We sent Ralph out to fetch the paper. Or something. The last thing you need when you're on four wheels is a third wheel.

As is often the case with things like this, suddenly we were the go-to experts on roller skating techniques. Everything from the proper way to tie your skates whilst wearing hot pants...
Sure, I guess you could sit down and do it. But what's the point of that?

... to how to utilize your toe stops when your 'do needs fluffing.
"Take Me With U"

Of course, some took to it better than others.
The biggest star in the whole world, Cher (of course), had the clothes, the skates and the attitude, but still felt awkward for some strange reason. So all three of us got involved in helping to boost her confidence...
It's been mentioned before but sometimes we're black. Again, don't let it throw you.
She got better but for some reason, like some timid drivers, she only felt really comfortable with her headlights on...
