  • Season 3 Episode 18: Nothing Personal

  • Goof: When Russert is talking to Gee at the end of her shift, she is wearing a red dress. After one quick shot of Gee, she suddenly has her black overcoat on.

  • Season 3 Episode 12: The City That Bleeds (1)

  • Lewis: …so the bear says, 'You didn't really come here to hunt, did you?'

    Lewis says this when Gee comes into the squad room and announces that Bolander, Felton and Howard have been shot. This is the punch line to an off-color joke Lewis tells more than once in the series (the joke itself is never heard). It was first heard in episode 66/5-11, "The Documentary" with Lewis telling it to Kellerman on the way to the Waterfront, in episode 68/5-13, "Have A Conscience", Kellerman asks Lewis about the joke, with Kellerman saying the line and in episode 99/6-22, "Fallen Heroes (1)".

  • I noticed something interesting while watching this episode. During the major shooting sequence in which 3 detectives are shot, you never see the shooters face. However, if you view this sequence frame by frame (like I did on my DVD player), there's a single frame in which you can see the shooter's face through the stair railings. It isn't Gordon Pratt - the man accused of the shooting in part 3 of this sequence of episodes. Was the actor not available during the filming of this episode? ...or did the producers have something else planned that they never followed up on?

  • Season 3 Episode 11: Partners

  • Lewis', Munch's, and Bayliss' bar makes its grand opening.

  • Season 3 Episode 10: Cradle to Grave

  • Cases:

    Felton: 255 Doe
    Lewis: 253 Whetherly

  • Season 3 Episode 7: The Last of the Watermen

  • As Pemberton and Felton get out of the car to arrest Artie Resnik, Pemberton is first seen with a new lit cigarette in his mouth. The scene cuts to Pemberton patting down Artie (who amusingly asks "Got a cigarette?") and Pemberton's own cigarette has now vanished. Felton gives Artie a cigarette, the scene cuts again to Felton lighting Artie's smoke, as Pemberton re-enters the frame with his cigarette back in his mouth. Felton asks if he killed her and he confesses, the shot cuts once more and Pemberton's cigarette has once again disappeared. Just before Pemberton cuffs Artie at the car Felton remarks (even more amusingly) "Lose the cigarette Artie".

  • In the opening scene of the episode Munch is sitting in the Laundromat as Gee enters. Munch throws a white shirt at his washing machine. It sticks on the door, half in and half out of the machine as we see Gee start to walk past behind him. The scene cuts to a fraction of a second later with Gee still walking past behind Munch, and Munch still sitting in his chair, but the white shirt hanging from the washing machine has now gone.

  • Season 3 Episode 6: Crosetti

  • The "body" that water patrol pulls out of the water has quite a bit of hair on top of his head to be a realistic Crosetti.

  • Season 3 Episode 4: A Model Citizen

  • I don't believe that last goof was a goof. Gee says that he feels that Pembleton is worth the $100,000 the city payed for him. I'm sure that the total cost was $200,000, but the suit was filed against Pembleton AND Megan Russert. I believe Gee assumes that the city payed $100,000 for Pembleton and $100,000 for Russert. So it would make sense why he only includes half the settlement when he talks to Frank in the Box.

  • After the preliminary hearing, Weaver says that the city will settle Wilgis' lawsuit for $200,000. However, later in the squadroom, Gee tells Pembleton that the city feels it is worth $100,000 to clear up the suit and keep him on the job.
