YMMV: The Good Guys
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Frequently accompanies the car chase. Where they get their music budget is anyone's guess, but every single episode used classic rock favourites. The Pilot Episode had the pivotal car chase accompanied by "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC. Yeah, it's that kind of show.
    • The first episode also features I Fought the Law (Music:The Clash version, even though the Bobby Fuller Four version would have fit the Texas setting).
    • As of the November 5 2010 episode, Dan's phone now has "Slow Ride" by Foghat as a Crowning Ringtone of Awesome.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming
    • The denouement of "Old Dogs". Stark reveals his episode long Batman Gambit to Jack, the end result of which is that the con Jack's uncle was pulling fails. This in turns means that Jack's career is safe (as Jack vouched for this uncle which allowed him to gain access to 100K) and prevents any sort of emotional fallout from the act (as Jack was initially hesitant to trust his uncle). They hug. But the most heartwarming part of all is the note Stark leaves for Jack's uncle: "Stay the hell away from my partner. He's my family now."
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Jack accidentally implying that hodges is impotent. Even Dan wasn't amused.
  • Ear Worm: SLINK! Yeah yeah, oh oh, oh no...
    • Becomes frustrating when you realize it's not available for download, and in fact isn't even available on CD.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Pedro from the first episode. Being played by HITG Andrew Divoff didn't hurt.
  • Genius Bonus: In Dan On The Run, Dan's police sketch looks exactly like the Unabomber's
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: THAT'S Josh Lyman?
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The gunshot sound used for the important scene changes. May or may not come with actual gunshots in the scene.
  • So Bad, It's Good: "Savage & Stark".
