* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Jones ends up punching Garcia over a racially insensitive comment, causing him to end up doing crossing guard duty as punishment. By the end of the episode, Garcia goes to Jones to apologize and give him a peace offering, and ask if they can still be partners. Jones takes a look at the peace offering to find that it's fried chicken and malt liquor.

* ItsACostumePartyISwear: Inverted in one episode in which Dangle hosts a murder mystery dinner theater and tells the other deputies it's a "dress-up party"--meaning they should dress up nicely. Junior interprets this a little differently and shows up dressed as [[PiratesoftheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow.]]

* SheCleansUpNicely: Weigel is usually treated as Hollywood homely, but on more than one occasion she's been cleaned up and the others are shocked at how attractive she is. The biggest offender is when the female officers are issued new bulletproof vests, which essentially fit like a corset. Dangle, of all people, can't resist Weigel in the vest.

** Garcia's almost supernaturally terrible aim... he's fired his gun many times with wanton disregard for safety, but has never hit a single thing on camera. [[spoiler: After his death, he requests his ashes to be fired from a canon... which ends up misfiring, launching the canon into the air and crashing into one of the cruisers. Everyone present blames it on Garcia and his infamous "marksmanship"]]

-->'''Declan''': "Oh, that'll kill a brain right there, yeah."
-->'''Dangle''': "Shouldn't have revived her. It's what the doctor said. The doctor said I should've let her go."

* CastingGag: Ryan Stiles (known for shows like ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'') visits in one episode to teach everyone how to do act during undercover work, but it ends up being a lesson on improv.
** In one episode, Dangle gives two prostitutes an improv lesson when their "two-girl show" isn't convincing.

--> '''Junior''': "The Reno Sheriff's Department is a perfect law enforcement engine. And you do not make an engine faster by adding another part. You make an engine faster by putting nitrous in it. And I don't mean an analogy, I mean... ''*thumps the hood of his squad car*'' we should get nitrous in our cars."

''Reno 911!'' is an {{Improv}} {{mockumentary}}-style parody of ''Series/{{COPS}}'' and similar reality shows, that ran on ComedyCentral for six seasons from 2003 to 2009 and continues in reruns. Much of the material is improvised, based on a broad outline, with minimal scripted material. It features members of the fictitious Reno Sheriff's Department, videotaped in the course of their duties, sometimes addressing the camera directly as though being interviewed.

*** This is part TruthInTelevision as most Canadian police officers wear it over their shirt in this exact fashion.
