** This was also Nadia's motivation for going after every man she met in the first episode. She was hoping she could find a way to stay in America.

** Tom Hanson in season 4. He starts the series out as a well-spirited and motivated man. But during season 2 and 3 he is broken down by, amongst other things: having his girlfriend shot dead in front of him in a mugging and his guilt over not having been able to prevent it, causing him to slip in a PTSD-like state for a while ("Orpheus 3.3"); an undercover operation in a mental institution gone wrong causing him drugged off and lost in the system ("I'm OK, You Need Work"); an undercover operation in juvenile prison making him cynic/doubtful about whether what he's doing as a cop is actually making lives better ("Swallowed Alive"). But the straw is the season 3 finale ("Loc'd Out"), [[spoiler:in which he is wrongfully convicted for murder and sent to prison even though innocent]]. Beginning season 4, [[spoiler:he's proven innocent, released from prison and returns as a police officer]], but the rest of season 4 he seems a darker, broodier version of himself with a permanent expression of chagrin on his face. He keeps mentioning during season 4 that he wants to quit the police force. Beginning season 5, he's [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome suddenly disappeared without explanation and his co-workers seem unaware he's ever existed]].

* OutOfGenreExperience: While early seasons almost exclusively revolved around the Jump Street cops posing undercover in high schools, later seasons saw more episodes where the main plot didn't focus on a student, or students.
** In "Shirts and Skins," Penhall investigates the murder of a neo-Nazi leader with an adult son [[spoiler:who is eventually revealed as the killer]], while Hoffs and Aoki blend in with anti-racism vigilantes.
** Numerous later-season episodes which focus on the officers' personal lives, as opposed to campus or youth crimes.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: [[JohnnyDepp Johnny Depp's]] attraction to eyeliner didn't start with [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] - during his time on this show, he was undercover in drag in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4bJr_gY2E0#t=4m34 In the Custody of a Clown]]" and looked far too convincing.
