* FriendsRentControl: Mac's Georgetown apartment probably costs as much for one month's rent as a JAG lawyer would earn in three months. It can't even be {{handwave}}d in any meaningful way, since it's well-established that Mac came from a poor family. (To their credit, they never really even tried.) The same arguably applies to Harm's apartment, but it has the mitigating circumstance of being located "north of Union Station" (a really bad neighborhood in real life, so it's somewhat plausible that even an apartment that big and nice would be relatively cheap).

** Catherine Bell's [[HideYourPregnancy pregnancy]] in late season 8, as her character temporarily served as judge to hide the fact. And later that season she followed Clayton Webb on a secret mission to Paraguay posing as his pregnant wife...
** Indirectly through RippedFromTheheadlines, as numerous incidents and happenings affecting the military are used as material for episodes, such as the 2001 April 1st collusion of a American and Chinese plane, or Clinton era budget cuts. One episode had Rabb going up against the RogueWarrior.
** Directly through 9/11 and the resulting armed conflicts in the Middle East, from the seventh season onwards.

* BilingualBackfire: In "Silent Service" Sarah Mackenzie is on a submarine as part of a fact-finding mission to determine whether women should be allowed to serve on submarines.

Mac, who is fluent in Russian, says, "Let me know if you see any sperm whales. I thought they were rare in these seas."

* CourtMartialed: As is expected [[EactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin by the title and premise]], many episodes involved court-martials for reasons varying from minor mistakes (that in order to up the drama led to (or nearly led to) major disasters or had their cases led by a HangingJudge or KangarooCourt) to dereliction of duty to possible espionage.
