** In "False Arrest," Buddy Goodrich, a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity giant jerk who's the star of a popular, family-friendly TV show]], assaults Carl after he tells Goodrich that he's parked his car in a handicapped spot. Carl arrests Goodrich, who quickly schemes to have his assistant lie about what really happened. But the star is desperate to cover up any possible bad press, so he heads to the Winslow home with tickets to his show (the entire family, save Carl, loves the program) and a fat bribe for Carl (in the guise of hiring him as a "technical consultant"). Carl says that "he can't shave with his eyes closed," and explains that if he ''did'' take the bribe, he wouldn't be able to face his children or fellow officers. He then kicks the arrogant star out of the house, to wild applause from both his family and the studio audience. And in the end, Goodrich ''is'' found guilty after all, which ruins his reputation.

*** The rest of the family gets in on the action when they return the tickets to the taping and slam the door in Goodrich's face, making it clear that they no longer support his phony act.

*** Earlier in the episode, Steve volunteers to clean up the park by hosing the area and picking up litter, only to encounter three obnoxious girls (the same girls that he faced in a previous episode) that purposely toss around litter just to get on his nerves. After remembering that he's armed with a water hose, [[BreakingTheFourthWall he gives the camera a sly grin]] before ''hosing down the bullies out of the park''.

** In one of the later episodes, Carl and everyone in the precinct are positive he will get the promotion to Captain; but the Commissioner transfers in his nephew for the position. He even has the audacity to ask Carl to help out his nephew, and Carl reluctantly agrees. Carl likes the new Captain because the guy is very friendly and values Carl's opinion. A situation comes up where two rival gangs are going to have a confrontation, and everyone turns to the Captain. Not knowing what to do, he asks Carl to tell him what actions to take; but Carl says that it's not his place to tell him since he's the Captain. Because lives are at stake, he asks Carl what he would do. Carl then starts laying out his plan, and the Captain authorizes it. When the Commissioner comes to congratulate them on a job well done, Carl gives the praise to the Captain. This in itself is a crowning moment of awesome for Carl to be humble. Another moment follows right after when the Captain tells his uncle that it was Carl's plan and that he's not cut out for it. He just likes being where he was and states the best man for the job is Carl. So, the Commissioner promotes Carl.

* One episode had Laura going on a date to a drive-in with a guy who pressured her for sex. When she told him she didn't want to, he proceeded to insult her, calling her stupid, uncool, and a baby. Laura takes this crap and also shrugs him off multiple times. She finally shouts, "For the last time, no means NO!" smacks him, and exits the car.

** And it was her fault they had to stay at the hotel. Steve had told her that his car couldn't safely go any faster, but Laura was too impatient and stepped on his foot to bottom out the gas pedal. The resulting strain on the engine caused it to blow a gasket.
