* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Red light districts visible, charecters deliberate use of innuendo, implying that Gil and Pearl 'get busy' on her diner counter at the end of one episode. In this particular case it's hard to tell if there even ''is'' a radar.
** During the days when children's channels were not 24 hour, Fish Police was one of the last shows on late at night. Essentially one of the shows you had to stay up late on a school night to watch..

** In the comics, Gill looked like [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Yz1vIhhPo3s/Try0Y86s6RI/AAAAAAAAErA/Mn_b7sq3diM/s1600/fishpolice1.jpg this]]. In the cartoon, he looked more like a fish version of ComicStrip/DickTracy hat, trench coat and all. Also, he's TheAlcoholic in the comic, but not so much here. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Finally, his surname has two L's in the comic.]]

* MrFanservice: In-universe example with inspector C. Bass, who gets wolf-whistled at by policewomen, and even [[DeadpanSnarker Goldie]] flirts with him.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: During the beauty contest Pearl freaks Angel out by approaching her with a big knife and a scowl. Angel thinks she's about to kill her over Gill. Instead Pearl uses the knife to trim Angels bikini and make it look skimpier in order to help her win the contest.

* StupidSexyFriend: Even though he choose to just be friends with her Gil can't help but have frequent inappropriate inner monologues about Angel. Not helped by the fact that she encourages it quite deliberatly.

* HintDropping: Subverted. Gil clearly gets Angel's hints at wanting a more intimate relationship, because being observant is his job, and because her idea of hinting is asking him to join her in a bath and asking him to come into her apartment.

Added DiffLines:

* PyrrhicVictory: Pearl helps Angel win the beauty contest, because that means she'll have to go touring the seas and away from Gil. Angel wins but concedes the victory to another contestant much to Pearls annoyance.
