* {{Anvilicious}}:
** It's a Jack Webb production.
** And, of course, [[VisualPun the Mark VII Limited production logo.]]
* HoYay:
** Not so much between Reed and Malloy. But witness Malloy's FreakOut on Tony in "I.A.D-Blackmail". It's half EtTuBrute, half WasItAllALie.
** 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]]).
** In the episode "Vice Versa", [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Malloy is jumpy and nervous when Reed does the driving]]. Maybe FreudWasRight? There is also this conversation in the middle of the ep: "Why don't you just relax and leave the driving to me?" "That's why I can't relax, you're doing the driving." Reed replies, "I haven't had any complaints from Jean." The DeathGlare that follows is pretty epic.
* ProductPlacement: It seems that about the time they started featuring American Motors Matadors as the primary squad cars, Reed and Malloy started pursuing a ''lot'' more AMC cars. Not to mention that Malloy buys an AMC Matador to replace his Mustang in season six.
* [[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.
* {{Shipping}}: A lot of Malloy/Reed, as one might expect.
* 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.
