YMMV: Early Edition
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Christmas Episode had the scene where Santa grabs a bomb and is presumably killed. A similar situation happens in Grey's Anatomy when a bomb squad guy played by Kyle Chandler is killed after removing a replica bazooka shell lodged in a man's gut.
- Near the end of the pilot, Gary tells Det. Tagliotti that he hopes to never see her again. The next episode showed she got demoted with Crumb taking her place.
- Dude, Not Funny!: While it's a "little" funny, the lack of empathy people show Chuck after the wheels on his new car are stolen is rather appalling.
- Iron Woobie: Again, Gary, for the same reasons as The Determinator.
- The Scrappy: Patrick. Made worse that he's named after one of the creators, Patrick Q. Page.
- Tear Jerker:
- "Thief Swipes Mayor's Dog", even if your not a dog lover. Phil losing his beloved dog Bugle can hit anyone who's had a dog, and lost one.
