* FridgeLogic: Dan once claimed to have the highest conviction rate and lowest rate of overturn on appeals of any prosecutor in NYC. This is likely true due to the docket he works, which sees a large number of defendants charged with minor crimes who plead out for fines and time served. He's not losing cases because relatively few are disputing the charges against them.

*** Dan also groped Christine and stole her underwear while she was choking. Even if he saved her life, he still committed ''sexual assault'' and would be considered a monster in any modern TV show.

** A season 4 episode had Dan [[IOweYouMyLife saving Christine's life]] and, in return, demanding that Christine sleep with him. Even though Christine only pretended to accept because she knew [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Dan would never actually go through with it]], no show after TheEighties would have a character do that and still be considered just a JerkAss rather than a criminal.

* ValuesDissonance: Dan's lecherous behavior pushed the limits of acceptability even for the time - even allowing for the exaggerated nature of the show's universe. In modern times, Dan libido ''might'' have been tolerated (though likely he would've been hit with multiple sexual harassment complaints, along with suspensions and mandatory counselling), but his habit of getting grabby would've gotten him fired with speed (if not arrested).

* NightmareFuel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_vdLRtLxUU This]] VanityPlate played after the closing credits after the second season, and was only used for ''Night Court''. Some people remember this show more for the horrifying laughter in the closing logo than for the show itself. Show writer Tom Reeder [[http://kenlevine.blogspot.com/2012/12/rip-reinhold-weege.html?m=1 revealed in the comments on Ken Levine's blog post reporting Reinhold Weege's death]] that the laugh belonged to Weege's father, Chuck. He and his wife came to see every episode taped during Weege's tenure on the show, thus his laugh is also heard in the laugh track recorded for every episode until Weege left.

** It also sounds a little similar to the ''Series/BarneyMiller'' theme, interesting given both shows were comedies about people getting arrested.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One episode had an actor who played a [[Radio/TheLoneRanger Lone Ranger]]-esque character who was upset about a new, grittier movie that went completely against what his show/movies were about. He threatened to kill himself with a suspended air conditioner. In the end, it all worked out because the movie bombed with audiences, so the old guy wins a moral victory. While, as mentioned on the main page, this was based on something that actually happened in 1980, when the owner of The Lone Ranger copyright forced the original Lone Ranger actor from the TV series to stop touring with his costume because the owner wanted to do a DarkerAndEdgier film reboot, on 2013, ''another'' Darker and Edgier [[Film/TheLoneRanger film adaptation]] of ''The Lone Ranger'' was made by Disney, and was also poorly received. This would seem HilariousInHindsight except that Disney's ''Lone Ranger'' is on track to becoming one of the biggest {{Box Office Bomb}}s of all time.

** In the Season 8 episode "Death Takes a Halloween", Harry jails a defendant who claims to be the Angel of Death. As a result, no one is able to die. The episode has a scene where Harry, while speaking on the telephone, makes some offhand or throwaway joke about people jumping off the World Trade Center and miraculously surviving.
