* ThePeteBest: Karen Austin and Paula Kelly who were only present during the first season before leaving, and their characters (Lana and Liz, respectively) quickly forgotten about. Karen Austin has stated that she was let go due to being diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, and producers thought this would be an issue for filming. It has never been disclosed why Paula Kelly left the show.

Added DiffLines:

** Reinhold Weege, and most of the cast have stated that throughout the 9-year run, NBC execs were never really enthusiastic about the show. They never understood the show's humor, or why it was so popular. They only kept it on because for most of the run it got big ratings, and there was a fear that if it was canceled prematurely, ''someone'' would be fired.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorSharedBackground: Harry Stone, the character, and Harry Anderson, the actor, are both magicians and devoted Mel Torme fans. Unusually, creator Reinhold Weege came up with the name and characterization before discovering an actor who exactly fit the bill by pure chance.

Added DiffLines:

* DyeingForYourArt: Richard Moll shaved his head to play Bull, leading the actor to joke that he it was a relief to see that he could grow a full head of hair during hiatuses.


Added DiffLines:

* MoneyDearBoy: The show was to end after Season 8 and the cast was ready to move on. When NBC surprisingly renewed the show for an additional season, the network convinced the entire cast to stay on by presenting them with, in Markie Post's words, "jumbo buckets full of money".


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The showrunners had plans to conclude Harry and Christine's romantic arc with a wedding in Season 8 as it was supposed to be the final season. A surprise renewal caused the writers to try and keep it going, and eventually losing momentum, in Season 9. NBC then told the writers to not write a series finale, leading them to believe that a tenth season was going to happen, but then, on the final day of shooting, gave everyone notes saying that the soundstage had to be completely cleared by the end of the day and brought in extra security to make sure that no one tried to linger once production wrapped.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledScript: The show often reused the plot of someone who claimed to be an alien/Death/a guy from the future et al. coming into the courtroom only for it to reveal they were a normal person who's mind had snapped due to some tragedy they suffered.
