** There is 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 or that specific car is usually the one assigned to that particular patrol area.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In one episode, Malloy is injured in a crash, and the radio is hors de combat. Then a murderer with nothing to lose happens by, and, not realizing the radio is kaput, pulls mike out. Malloy is able to cross the now-exposed wires to signal [=***---***=] in Morse Code.

Added DiffLines:

* ChaseScene: Not that many episodes featured these; notably, the first episode had a car chase, where Malloy and Reed pursue two liquor store robbers down a highway under construction and the end result is Reed's first bust. There were far more foot pursuits than car chases, although enough police pursuits were scattered throughout the run to satisfy most viewers.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold / JerkassFacade:
** Malloy early on, particularly in episode one. Once he [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosts]] he's more just TheStoic.
** And then there's Ed Wells, who is a [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] along the lines of a [[TheBully schoolyard bully]], but isn't all bad deep down.

* BadCopIncompetentCop: Several episodes dealt with officers who were ill-suited for the job or made major mistakes that put others (if not innocent bystanders, Reed and Malloy) in jeopardy. Other episodes for example, "Pressure Point" have rookie officers with various handicaps, and even though they are by all accounts good officers, it is their shortcomings (not necessarily through any fault of their own) that lead to trouble.

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: Lots of people tend to get confused as to what "Adam-12" refers to. The unit's full callsign is 1-Adam-12. "1" indicating Division 1 (Central Division), "Adam" indicating a two-officer patrol car unit, and "12" is their number and patrol area within Central Division. 1-Adam-12 means "Central division, two-officer car number 12". Two hammer in the point, the car has a large "012" painted on the roof.
** The car's name is ''sort of'' Adam-12; that's the unit's call sign. It's not exactly a "KITT from ''Knight Rider''" deal. And neither of the two fellows pictured at the top of the page are named Adam.
** 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 or that specific car is usually the one assigned to that particular patrol area.

** Season six episodes follow a "X Division" naming convention with "X" standing in for the name of the division, such as Hollywood, Northwest, Rampart (Some season six archived on You Tube are misnamed).
