* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Season 6, Episode 24's ''A Clinic on 18th Street'' is the pilot for a show featuring the DA Office's Fraud Division. The cast of the pilot (including future ''Series/{{Switch}}''[=/=]''Series/CagneyAndLacey'' star Sharon Gless who gets the WelcomeEpisode treatment), are all listed in the opening credits as "Special Guest Stars". Reed and Malloy only appear in the very begining and very ending of this story of a Doctor peddling electronic health belts to diabetics and fake blindness cures to little girls. Jack Webb directed, but not in his trademark ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' style.

** In another episode, Reed and Malloy return to the squad car after having lunch only to find Reed had forgotten to roll up his window....allowing a German Shepherd named Luger to jump into Reed's seat.

* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: In the first episode, Malloy preforms CPR on a suffocated infant, who is fine and dandy seconds later. Not at all unrealistic, however, dramatic as it was. Prompt administration of rescue breathing is effective in children in respiratory arrest. It's when respiratory arrest leads to cardiac arrest (which is usually the order of things in children—for adults, it's the opposite) when the odds of survival take a sharp dive. That applies for adults and children, but especially for children who, when they crash, crash very hard. Besides which, the characters all treated it as something of a miracle — Malloy had instructed Reed to inform the parents that their daughter was all but dead already.

Prompt administration of rescue breathing is effective in children in respiratory arrest.

* DaChief: Mac essentially fills this role for Pete, Jim and the other uniform officers, although in one or two episodes, we also saw the Captain pop up. Mac is more positive than a lot of other examples of this trope, though, more of a ReasonableAuthorityFigure sort.

* DeadpanSnarker: Malloy has a very dry sense of humor. He usually doesn't employ it against civilians, but Reed, MacDonald, Wells and others are frequent victims.

* {{Blackmail}}: The appropriately titled "IAD-Blackmail" has Pete discover that a fellow officer is blackmailing a witness to keep quiet. The officer tries to get Pete on his side after having saved Pete's life earlier in the episode, but Pete just gets ticked off about having his name drug into it.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: In an episode where two guys are fighting over a boat, Pete recalls buying one and that it "nickled and dimed him to death". This is referring to "A Fool and His Money", where Pete wins $10k in a contest and wants to buy a boat, despite Jim's urging to invest the money.

* {{Foreshadowing}} In "Astro Division", Reed and Malloy are getting help from the department helicopters. Reed says he wonders what the view is like from one of them, and Malloy says that maybe one day he'll find out. Both officers later went up in helicopters in the two part episode "Skywatch".

** There is, however, a third-season episode in which Malloy and Reed chase a stolen police car. When it runs out of gas, they discover it was taken by a kid who had just signed up to work at the police department's auto maintenance shop. When he recognizes their car, he says "Yeah, that's 1-Adam-12," suggesting that the car's ID matches the radio call sign.
