** In "Good Faith", Jacob Reese killed Nash because he believed that he [[spoiler:had sex with his teenage daughter and gave her chlamydia. This turned out to be a lie since his daughter was afraid to tell him who really had sex with her.]]

* AdamWesting: This trope might apply to Creator/AnnaGunn, who famously portrayed Skyler White on BreakingBad. Skyler White is a strong, intelligent female character who is afraid of, but devoted to, her husband. In the L&O episode "Love Eternal", on the other hand, Gunn plays a ditzy dominatrix who is nauseatingly devoted to her husband (to the point where she sends Connie diamond earrings containing her husband's ashes).

* TeamDad: Adam Schiff, then Jack [=McCoy=][=McCoy=].
* TeenageWasteland: Played with. There was an episode from season 11 actually ''named'' Teenage Wasteland" where the teenaged suspects had parents that were simply unaware of their children's behavior. However, they all were more of a case of TeensAreMonsters.

** George Dzundza was stressed out travelling constantly from L.A. to New York, and he had thought initially that he would maintain a starring role in the series. So, his character, Max Greevey, was shot and killed the first episode of the second season.

** Both George Dzundza and Paul Sorvino (Det. Greevey and Cerreta) were tired of the repetitive nature of the show, so their characters were both [[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge, first episode of Season 2 and mid-Season 3 respectively. (Well, Cerreta is later shown to have survived the gunshot.)]]

** In "House Calls" there's a dead body, a controlling dad, and a shady celebrity doctor. [[spoiler:But the victim's injuries are self-inflicted, and the drug overdose that killed her? Turns out to be the result of a ''mistranslation'' of the shady doctor's recommendations, which were within acceptable medical parameters. And this only comes out when the witness innocently stumbles over the same mistranslation on the witness stand.]] Even [=McCoy=], up to that point in full CrusadingLawyer mode, appears dumbfounded.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldianConversation: Often occurs between random civilians during the episode opening, only to cut off abruptly when said civilians discover the dead body of the week. Sometimes the detectives engage in this as well while in pursuit of a criminal or while puttering around a suspect's home.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: New York's a tough city, but nevertheless it's remarkable how many average citizens are barely fazed (often barely looking up from whatever task they're doing) when homicide detectives roll up and start asking questions.

* UndercoverAsLovers: Completely averted by the Chinese government in "Take-Out", where [[spoiler: it intentionally sends ugly men to do espionage business with women so to not generate even the remotest possibility of love complications]].
