* DysfunctionJunction: With the exception of the time the FBI was brought in in Season 1 to help catch a serial killer and a couple others, nobody who visits the precinct leaves without exposing themselves as a horrible, horrible person.

** 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"]]

** The entirely of season 3 episode 4, "SARS Outbreak" is basically two unrelated Shaggy Dog stories. When the officers are being filmed for a children's show, they quickly realize that very little of what they do on a daily basis is kid-appropriate. They try to stage a cat "rescue" by planting one of Weigel's cats on a roof, but that also backfires when Junior [[ShootTheShaggyDog drops the cat into a wood chipper.]] At the end, when everyone tunes in to watch the episode, they discover that [[spoiler: the entire episode was scrapped and replaced with one about firemen]]. Meanwhile, Jones, Weigel and Dangle spend a nerve-wracking two days in quarantine thinking they've contracted SARS from a dead perp, only to find that [[spoiler: the man died of AIDS]].

After [[WhatAnIdiot Dangle]] [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety recklessly fires his pistol in the air]], they find themselves not only outnumbered by ''[[OhCrap heavily outgunned]]''. Dangle immediately begins removing his uniform, claiming that they are, in fact, strippers hired for the party.
