* AwardSnub: Angela Lansbury: 12 Years, 12 Emmy nominations, not a single win.
* CrossoverShip: Nearly a canon example. The end of the ''Series/MagnumPI'' crossover teased Jonathan Higgins and Jessica, although it never went past Higgins quite obviously crushing on Jessica, to her amusement.
* EarWorm: The famous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BfbDEYY6t4 theme song.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: "It's a Dog's Life": Cherie Currie's character is named Echo. [[http://www.poplifeart.com/cherie_currie1.jpg Guess what brand of power tools Currie endorses as a chainsaw artist?]]
* {{Narm}}: The infamous drive-by swording sequence from "The Celtic Riddle".
* NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize: Occasionally subverted. In fact, many guest stars turned out to be allies of Jessica's or a RedHerring, while a character played by a much less famous person was the actual killer.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Kathryn Morris was in one of the TV movies three years before ''Series/ColdCase'' premiered.
** George Clooney and Julianna Marguiles both appeared in episodes (separately) eons before {{ER}} made them famous.
