* {{Malaproper}}: Dan. In the first episode, he manages to mispronounce 'humidifier' in several different ways, and he gets worse from there.

Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Dan has showed he is quite the competent cop and usually plays up his ObfuscatingStupidity to get close to a suspect, but he would rather do police work the way he did in the 80's rather than the more by the book way of the current time.

** Lampshaded in the 20th (and last) episode. "The oddly hot chick with the [[FamilyMatters Urkel]] glasses."

Added DiffLines:

** In one episode, the governor's son is apparently kidnapped and Dan and his old partner decide to leap into things, thinking they're once more the mavericks taking charge...unaware that the police consider them the prime suspects.
** Also, many of the criminals make the assumption Dan and Jack are truly competent and brilliant policemen to be on their trial, unaware that half the time, the duo have no idea of the crime schemes they're unravelling. More than once, a crook will snarl at the two of them on his case when they have no clue who he is.

* ExactWords: After being told not to get within a mile of a case, Dan and Jack wait at a drugstore exactly 1.01 miles from the criminals house.

Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: Dan and Jack will completely foil a big crime solely because they follow a MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot. More often than not it's because the criminals thinks the police are onto them when they clearly have no idea.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Dan. He will often be going along with an obvious con or liking a clear sleazeball, but he later reveals he was faking it very convincingly to get the targets guard down.
