* OldShame: Chris Noth considers his time on the show to be this, not because of the show itself, but rather his poor working relationship with Creator/DickWolf. The men have had bad blood since the controversial removal of actors Dann Florek and Richard Brooks as well as the firing of Michael Moriarty from ''Series/LawAndOrder'' back in the 90s. Eventually, his own firing from said show after he openly complained about Wolf, which resulted in his character written off as [[PutOnABusToHell being transferred]] [[ReassignedToAntarctica to Long Island for ten years.]]

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: When Kathryn Erbe became pregnant with her second child, a pregnancy arc was written out for Eames in which she acted as the surrogate mother for her sister's child. This of course resulted in an ObviousPregnancy later that season.
** Also the case with Julianne Nicholson; her first pregnancy was avoided by having the character PutOnABus for the first half of Season Seven, but the second time they wrote it in.
** When Jamey Sheridan was affected with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell%27s_Palsy Bell's Palsy]], so was Deakins (who donned an EyepatchOfPower). At times it was obvious the poor guy was visibly struggling with it and was having a hard time saying his lines.



* WrittenInInfirmity: For Nicholson's second pregnancy.

* WrittenInInfirmity: For Nicholson's second pregnancy.pregnancy.
* YouLookFamiliar: [[Series/TrueBlood Carrie Preston]] has appeared in three different episodes as three different characters.
** So has Susan Misner.
** Jay O. Sanders played a memorable killer-of-the-week in one episode back in 2002; he plays Capt. Hannah in the final season.

* ColbertBump: Goldblum shamelessly plugged the show on ''Series/TheColbertReport'', and Stephen Colbert himself guest starred in Season 3.
* CreatorBreakdown: Unlike other shows in the franchise, which are ensemble affairs, ''CI'' focused nearly-exclusively on Goren, and required Vincent D'Onofrio to have a punishing workload. D'Onofrio eventually had to be hospitalized for clinical exhaustion, so the producers brought in a second detective team and began the alternating format in consideration of their lead actor's health problems. Goren's weight gain throughout the later seasons of the show is also attributable to D'Onofrio's health issues.
* TheDanza: James "Jamey" Sheridan as Capt. James Deakins.
* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: In the special features of the Season 1 DVD, the producers say that after hiring Vincent D'Onofrio they basically allowed him to do whatever he wanted, leading to many FunnyMoments and one of the most distinctive characters in the crime genre.
