* ApologisesALot: Richard is constantly apologising "profusely" to Judge Walker, usually because he's brought in uncooperative witnesses. She lampshades it in one episode, while she's forcing him to copy by hand a list of prior convictions that he'd given her without a chance to properly format them, while dealing with a sprained wrist. He then informs her that his wrist was sprained in a bike accident on the way to her lecture two nights ago. She reveals that the ambulance that picked him up also dented her Prius. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny He apologises. Profusely.]]

* FriendOnTheForce: Out of all the police officers, officers in the first season, Andy is the most cooperative friendly and helpful to the Crownies. Even when he gets enraged at the Crownies lack of cooperation, he's quick to apologize for his own unreasonableness later.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: The media blames Janet for incorrectly sending Dianne Vaslich, accusing her of trying to run a speedy trial rather than searching for the truth with the police. Just an episode before, Janet turned down the case for its alarming lack of evidence and only agreed to take it because the police planned to run their own trial without the Crownies, which would be political ''disaster''.
