* 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.

** 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.

* DirtyCop: A TruthInTelevision -- Jack Webb (accurately) portrayed police officers as those whom people encounter every day: good, upstanding citizens and active members of their community, and most importantly honorable law enforcement officers dedicated to keeping people safe while keeping them safe from crime ... but Webb also didn't sugarcoat the truth, as he was well aware that police departments also had the occasional officer who . Every time, those who discredit the badge or do wrong are quickly exposed by their very own (in this case, Reed and/or Malloy were involved in exposing the truth) and ousted from the force. The most notable examples were "Internal Affairs Blackmail," where one of Malloy's best friends had secretly been blackmailing witnesses; and "Badge Heavy," where Reed witnesses a fellow officer choking out a suspect and eventually gets him to admit that officers need to be rough on suspects.
