* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: "Fire from the Sky" - a commuter plane from Baltimore to Boston crashes in the Blue Hills, killing everyone on board (including [[spoiler:Devan]]), after the crew and passengers are incapacitated by a [[DeadlyGas choking gas]] produced when sulfuric acid from a wheelchair battery (the plane's air marshal found a wanted felon on board, and during the ensuing scuffle one of them accidentally shot a hole in said battery) reacts with the borax used to clean the plane's carpet. Only problem is, the reaction of borax and aqueous sulfuric acid produces... sodium sulfate and boric acid, neither of which is a gas, let alone a choking one.

* ThrowingOutTheScript: In the first episode, Garret is supposed to do a presentation about coroners at a career day. He starts off with a fairly dry and unenthusiastic presentation, which gradually becomes a rant that practically drives people away with the lurid descriptions of his work.

** For all the Non-American tropers that's not a technicality. That is such a huge thing that not only can it ruin a prosecutor's career and get them disbarred but it also can cause every case that the prosecutor to have done be up for a retrial.

* AndIMustScream: A particularly dark example. The victim is shot and spends the most of the episode paralyzed. He used to be a prosecutor and Macy's friend, but underwent a FaceHeelTurn to AmoralAttorney when Macy refused to falsify evidence to put away a serial killer. He keeps pleading with Jordan and Macy not to autopsy him, promising he'll change. He's only saved when [[spoiler: Macy digs the bullet out and realizes he's still bleeding. Turns out he and his two guests (who were killed) had improperly prepared [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugu Fugu]], and his secretary shot him. On his way out of the hospital, Macy gives him a bell, and tells him that people used to be buried with strings attached to bells in case they were buried alive. The lawyer points out that Macy just effectively admitted the coroner's office is at fault, and he'll both be suing and representing the woman who shot him. [[LaserGuidedKarma Then he walks outside and gets hit by a bus]]. The last shots of the episode is the team looking down into his body bag, and their evaluator asking if they're ''sure'' he's dead. The bag is closed up, using the same POV shot from the lawyer's perspective as earlier, and then we hear a bell tinkling.]]

** [[spoiler:That is after he spends almost entire episode being mistaken for dead, having been paralyzed during the shooting. He is saved towards the end of the episode by the morgue staff, but instead of being grateful, he gleefully threatens to sue them all (and takes up the defense of the woman who shot at him, his assistant, and his client, just to spite the morgue staff). Then he is hit by KarmaHoudini, eh, a speeding car, and dies just in front of the morgue.]]
* BackAlleyDoctor: After a number of heroin overdoses are reported by one person, Dr. Macy and Dr. Winslow decide to investigate and find a former medic running an unlicenced clinic. Dr. Macy realizes that even though the clinic is not up to the standards of a real hospitical, it is doing good for the people it serves.
