* HarsherInHindsight: In "Elegy for a Pig" (the episode that paid tribute to officers killed in the line of duty) has one particular one, given the recent series of events involving police officers and relations with African-Americans. At the end of the episode, the gravesite service for Malloy's friend and fellow police officer, Tom Porter, has ended; Malloy stands there, taking stock of the situation and gives a reflection that says that -- in addition to being forgotten before long, except by family, friends and his closest fellow officers -- there will be no protests or marches to denounce his senseless death. Flash forward to the 2014-2016 time frame, where several police officers died in the line of duty and/or were targeted (in response to unarmed African-Americans being shot and killed during confrontations with police officers). Here, there were protests by counter-movements to the Black Lives Matter group, and others who were willing to speak out about the recent ill-relations between the two sides.

** The case in season 2 where a creep molested and mortally injured a five-year old boy, and Reed made no bones about how pissed off he was, is harsher in light of Malloy's later PoliceBrutality against a child molester who hospitalized a six-year-old girl and then said [[BlatantLies she asked for it]].

** Malloy, the [[strike:confirmed]] happy bachelor, has occasional dalliances with women but dislikes being pursued by them (though it may be down to thinking this is [[ValuesDissonance 'improper' or some such]]).

* [[TheyJustDidntCare They Just Didn't Care]]: Due to glare issues, the windshield was removed from the car used for the many in-car scenes, causing the spring-loaded wiper arms to park against the dashboard. No attempt was made to disguise this.

* UnfortunateImplications: Sometimes come across straight, sometimes as subverted and blithely humorous, as in this exchange:
--> Malloy: What do you do?
--> Ruth: I work for a firm that sells digital computers. I'm a computer programmer.
--> Malloy: *looks her over* Could have fooled me.
--> Ruth: Thank you. And you don't look like a cop, either.

TheScrappy: Judy, Pete's season six girlfriend. Besides the natural "he won't be single anymore" stuff, many fans either just don't like how she was written or think she was too old for Pete.
