* LonelyBachelorPad: {{Lampshaded}} [[RunningGag repeatedly]]. Constable Fraser's apartment is not only in a run-down apartment building in a bad neighborhood (Detective Vecchio claims that drug dealers are afraid to go there), but it is also very sparsely furnished. In one episode, where Fraser is suffering from EasyAmnesia, he sees his apartment and wonders if he was living like that as punishment for something he had done.

* EmbarrassingFirstName: Played straight with Stanley Ray Kowalski, who shared his name with the protagonist of ''AStreetcarNamedDesire''. {{Subverted}} with Fraser, who had an ''odd'' first name ("Benton"), but wasn't even remotely embarrassed by it.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the climax of "Victoria's Secret" makes it unclear to the audience whether or not [[spoiler: Victoria is pointing a gun at Fraser. love-struck Fraser sees an open-hand, while some distance away Ray sees a gun. Camera shots from their different perspectives show either case.]]

The Mountie, Constable Benton Fraser, came to Chicago on the trail of the killers of his father; and, "for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture", remained attached as liaison with the Canadian Consulate, working with local detective Ray Vecchio - who, for various reasons having to do with actor availability, is later replaced by Stanley (Raymond) Kowalski. Yes, that is his name (his dad was a fan of MarlonBrando). He even married a woman named Stella, though they had divorced by the time Ray K moved to Chicago.

Added DiffLines:

* SnowMeansLove: Near the end of the first season, [[DatingCatwoman Fraser and Victoria's relationship]] is repeatedly symbolized by metaphorical falling snow. Somewhat subversive in that this relationship isn't especially healthy - the snow could as much symbolize Victoria's lies & deception as love.

* CaliforniaDoubling (Toronto for Chicago, amusingly inverted when a Toronto-set episode was filmed in... Chicago.)
** The Chicago-for-Toronto doubling may very well have been an intentional joke - the producers were not above doing that kind of thing, such as when every shot of the Canadian consulate in Chicago was actually shot outside the American consulate in Toronto.
