* {{Crossover}}: Three difficult-to-reconcile crossovers with ''Series/AdamTwelve'':
** "Hang-Up" involves Gage and [=DeSoto=] trying to find out [[MindScrew how an episode of]] ''[[MindScrew Adam-12]]'' ended.
** They could have just ''asked'' Reed and Malloy, since the officers had a guest appearance in the series pilot, "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act."
** AND Gage and [=DeSoto=] help the officers deal with a lost diabetic boy who wandered off from Rampart on one ''Adam-12'' episode.

* HateSink: A few eps had these, due to there often being NoAntagonist & often were patients who gave the paramedics a hard time, but Brice was the most obvious. He seemed written just to make us want Johnny back on the job as soon as possible, at least in his first appearance.

** One notable HateSink in the season 4 episode "Firehouse Four": Mr. Fred Gibson, whose misguided attempts at exercise led to the paramedics having to rescue him throughout the episode -- and he always either blamed them for his predicament or gave them unfair criticism on how they did their job. The fact that the [[TheScrappy actor also was the voice of Scrappy Doo]] just makes you want to wring his neck.

*** ''Family Ties'' has Chet asking both Chief & Johnny if Roy could "pass as a movie star": cue disbelief and sarcasm.
*** ''An Ounce of Prevention'' is full of meta-references and fourth-wall-leaning snark, as Johnny & Roy go on a TV show to do a fire-prevention demonstration, and Johnny tries to teach Roy how to handle being on-camera.

* SoundtrackDissonance: used to annoying and wince-inducing effect in the 6th season episode, "Breakdown". A man in unconscious on top of a sky-tower; as Johnny & Roy are climbing up the tower to get to the injured man, we're treated to lyrical, string-filled romantic music that's better suited to a love scene, not the tense, high-altitude rescue we're watching. There's no reason for the dissonance at all, as the rescue is rather routine & has no plot subtexts underlying it.
