* FriendOnTheForce: Out of all the police officers, Andy is the most cooperative

to:

* FriendOnTheForce: Out of all the police officers, officers in the first season, Andy is the most cooperative friendly and helpful to the Crownies. Even when he gets enraged at the Crownies lack of cooperation, he's quick to apologize for his own unreasonableness later.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: The media blames Janet for incorrectly sending Dianne Vaslich, accusing her of trying to run a speedy trial rather than searching for the truth with the police. Just an episode before, Janet turned down the case for its alarming lack of evidence and only agreed to take it because the police planned to run their own trial without the Crownies, which would be political ''disaster''.
