* {{Badass}}: Joe Friday could be one when the situation called for it. There is an early episode when Joe and Bill track down a couple thugs who shot another cop with a shotgun. Joe kicks down the door, shoves a shotgun in the perp's face and says: "Flinch and you'll be chasing your head down Fifth Street." Later on, he tells the same guy, "I've bumped into jaywalkers tougher than you."

* LimitedWardrobe: For the '60s incarnation of the series, Joe Friday and Bill Gannon wore the same outfit for every episode to save time and money. The one exception was when Jack Webb and Harry Morgan once swapped jackets to see if anyone would notice. No one did.

* NothingIsScarier[=/=][[GoryDiscretionShot Cadaver Discretion Shot]]: In ''The Big High'', we don't see the dead child. But from the fact that Bill Gannon, who is made of such stern stuff that he hasn't once [[VomitingCop lost his lunch]] in seventeen years on the job, is now going to, we know it's a seriously disturbing sight.
