** Asten forces Quincy(and much of the staff) to carry beeping pagers at one point. Pagers are, of course, obsolete now, and Quincy would be carrying a cell phone these days.

* CounterpartComparison / SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: An odd example with two characters that had one episode each- actor Gerald S. O'Loughlin played the role of Jake Cutter in season 7's "Smoke Screen", a city insurance and arson investigator brought in on the episode's arson case. In season 8's "A Loss for Words", O'Loughlin returns as Arnold Chatham, an arson investigator that has worked for the coroner's office for 20 years, who has hidden his illiteracy. Same actor, same role, different names, different specific departments. Perhaps a case of TheyJustDidntCare in effect, since Cutter is never shown to read anything and could have worked just the same instead of a new character.

* NeverLiveItDown: "Next Stop, Nowhere," an alarmist polemic about the evils of punk rock which has naturally become a camp classic among punk fans ever since. It's dominated the show's reputation ever since.

** The mind control and interrogation techniques seen in "Sweet Land of Liberty" were very real- the episode was based on the government's MK Ultra experiments.

** For the most part, the makeup job used in "The Depth of Beauty" is incredibly well done. But they only applied it during the interview scene where the woman unmasks, meaning closeups of her eyes in other scenes lack the heavy scarring.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: A teenager in the HollywoodTourettes episode was a movie buff who couldn't enjoy movies for fear of making outbursts in a public theater. A few years later watching movies at home using a VCR would become commonplace.
