* Season 13 Episode 23--Couples--- is a marching band of black comedy moments:
** While investigating a murder, Briscoe and Green find a woman running over her cheating husband with her car. The woman's wild explanation involves quoting an obscure author, driving Green from the room.
** When Briscoe makes a crack about how the guy should have bought a smaller car, his girlfriend sobs "you think this is funny?"
** A man is accused of murdering his brother's wife but it turns out that the woman was ''his'' former wife who he was imprisoned for killing.
--> '''Serena''': Who's on first?
** When the woman who ran over her husband is brought into court for arraignment, we get this gem of an exchange.
-->'''Defense attorney''': She ran him over four times with her car.
-->'''Judge''': I admire her restraint.
-->Then:
-->'''Woman''': He's dead and I did it. I knew exactly what I was doing.
-->'''Judge''': I'm not supposed to give out personal opinions in the courtroom but I have to say, you make me proud to be an American.
** And then there's the ''reason'' she did it:
-->'''Woman''': [[DefiedTrope I'm not going under the knife]] [[GagBoobs for nobody!]] These were good enough for him when we got married!
** Having dealt with three murders, a kidnapping ''and'' a woman giving birth, Briscoe and Green are about to go home when the phone on their desk rings.
-->'''Briscoe''': There's no law that says you have to answer that.
** Finding out a jogger died of poison, they check in on his husband who acts shocked for five seconds before confessing to the murder, assuming the detectives already knew. They didn't and are surprised as the guy groans over how the state won't recognize their gay marriage so he loses everything, dragged off as Lenny moans "You have the right to remain silent. Please."

* A slightly morbid example in "Cradle to Grave" 2x18. A horrid landlady blames the rent laws for her pushing out tenants, leading to the death of a 10-month-old baby. She then starts heavily implying that an important witness will soon change his mind, to Stone's utter disbelief... with her lawyer trying to get her out of the room and shut her up while saying none of it counts. It's better watched.
** When getting evidence with Robinette, the undercover cop gets stuck in traffic. With time running short, Logan gets Robinette to change jackets with him (the man had already seen the cops and would recognize them). After Robinette gets the evidence, Logan immediately demands his jacket back.

** After dealing with nearly a whole episode's worth of witnesses [[BeAsUnhelpfulAsPossible completely unable to describe one suspect]], Lennie and Mike Logan are questioning an old black couple. The wife can't describe the suspect either and both detectives are nearly at wit's end... when she reveals she did neighborhood watch training and instead has the suspect's license plate number, which is ''much'' more useful.
--> '''Mike, to the husband''': Can I hug her?
** The arraignment sequence in this episode is something that must be seen to be believed as it stacks multiple defendants in sequence, with the judge's reactions and two of them staging their own hijinks.
* In "Big Bang" (Season 4, episode 16), the murder has to do with theories in physics. When Schiff asks what they're talking about, Kincaid tells him it has to do with the idea that "protons eventually fall apart." Schiff looks at her and asks, "Is this something I need to be ''worried'' about?"

Added DiffLines:

** The case involves an older man who seduces older woman into being sugar mamas. One working-class older woman was clearly charmed by him, but could tell it was all just "window dressing". This isn't funny in itself. What is funny is the contrast with the parade of well-off woman who ''were'' fooled by him through the rest of the episode.

* After dealing with nearly a whole episode's worth of witnesses [[BeAsUnhelpfulAsPossible completely unable to describe the suspect]], Lennie and Mike Logan are questioning an old black couple. The wife can't describe the suspect either and both detectives are nearly at wit's end...when she reveals she did neighborhood watch training and instead has the suspect's license plate number, which is ''much'' more useful.
--> '''Mike, to the husband''': Can I hug her?

Yeah, [[CaughtUpInTheRapture that rapture.]] Despite the fact that it's a homicide investigation, the detectives at some points visibly struggle to keep a straight face while dealing with a suspect who's bewildered the Rapture apparently ''hasn't'' happened. One exchange while Bernard interrogates one of the suspects:
