* Detective Stanley Taddeus "Wojo" Wojciehowicz ("You say it like it's spelled!" or "Spelled just like it sounds!") (Max Gail), who tended to act entirely on his impulses, causing Barney endless headaches. His original uncouth and dense character gradually became more enlightened as the series went on.

* SleepingTheirWayToTheTop: Rosalyn Licori assumes this when Barney innocently asks her to sit down on the couch and insists that she got her job on meric. Barney immediately and apologetically assures her that he has nothing of the sort in mind. (She then says that she ''did'' have opportunities.)

** In the second episode, a different African American actor played an officer named Wilson and sat at Harris's desk. Possibly used because the character needed to go out in drag at one point, and they needed to avoid Ron Glass's mustache. (A later episode had a subplot about Harris having to shave so he could do this detail. Barney makes a point of having Harris go last so he could keep it as long as possible.)

** In the second episode, a different African American actor played an officer named Wilson and sat at Harris's desk. The character was actually a holdover from the pilot. Possibly used because the character needed to go out in drag at one point, and they needed to avoid Ron Glass's mustache.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Fish's departure was dealt with in the two-part episode that opened Season 4, and the departure/death of Nick Yemana was dealt with somewhat obliquely (see CharacterOutlivesActor above). Chano's departure was mentioned in a throwaway gag two seasons after the fact. Other detectives were victims of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome. Linda Lavin's Detective Wentworth wasn't mentioned again after Lavin left for ''Series/{{Alice|1976}}''. Detective Maria Battista, played by June Gable, appeared in two Season 3 episodes and was never seen again. Rosslyn Licori, a plainclothes officer with a jealous husband, disappeared after three episodes in season 4, although actress Mari Gorman reappeared as Mr. Bender's wife. Early in season 7, the writers introduced Det. Eric Dorsey (Paul Lieber), a new detective with a blond afro and an [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold abrasive attitude]]. After four episodes, he disappears.

*** Jews often incorporate Santa into Chanukah celebrations. Part of the reason Chanukah has been played up over the decades -- it's really a minor holiday, Purim in early spring is the big banquet-and-gift-giving one -- is that it occurs around Christmastime so kids can feel there's a "Jewish Christmas".

** In "Hunger Strike", a Macedonian lady has been institutionalized for twenty years as a schizophrenic speaking meaningless gibberish because no one understands her language.
