  • Season 2 Episode 14: One Way Ticket

  • The very brief appearance of Jan Hammer as a wedding musician at the conclusion of the ceremony at the beginning of the episode is his one and only acting credit.

  • Assassin Sagot uses a stolen boat to take a wild ride down the Miami River, in an effort to elude police. As he comes to the end of the line, Crockett is seen on a bridge above the boat, waiting to jump on and catch Sagot. When Crockett makes the jump, he is clearly headed for the back of the boat, but Crockett lands in front of Sagot, gun drawn, ready to arrest the hit man.

  • Season 2 Episode 13: Yankee Dollar

  • The Drug Lord's mansion that Det. Crockett visits half way through the episode is the same one used as Frank Lopez's house in Scarface, a seminal 1980's film which heavily inspired elements of Miami Vice.

  • When Crockett hears his girlfriend screaming inside her house, he breaks the window of the front door so he can reach the inside lock to let himself in. When Crockett and Tubbs return to the girlfriend's house the following morning, the window of the front door is unbroken!

  • When Crockett drives his stewardess girlfriend to her house, we see him open the car door for her, then fold down the seat on the passenger side of the Ferrari to get at her suitcase behind the seat. The two walk to the house, chat briefly at the front door, and then Crockett leaves. When he gets back to the car, the passenger seat is back in the upright position.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: Phil the Shill

  • We learn that the official color of Crockett's Ferrari is Tuxedo Black -- because the writer, Mr. Diamond, was mildly offended by the use of a Corvette in Ferrari disguise. Tuxedo Black was a Chevrolet color.

  • Season 2 Episode 5: Buddies

  • Crockett, wearing a black shirt under his white jacket, is having an argument with his old army buddy, Robbie. At the height of the argument, Robbie tricks Crockett into leaving the room so he can sneak out another door. Realizing what has happened, Crockett pursues him in the Ferrari - now wearing a white shirt under his jacket! (This is due to previously-shot stock footage of Crockett madly driving the Ferrari through the streets.)

  • Season 2 Episode 4: The Dutch Oven

  • In the final scene, Tubbs and Crockett leave Trudy alone so she can speak with her boyfriend. As they turn and walk away, you can hear the sound of a man coughing on the soundtrack. This is likely supposed to be Crockett, who is still reacting to having a plate full of cocaine thrown into his face in the previous scene. However, even though Johnson's back is to the camera at this point, you can see by his body movement that he clearly isn't coughing.
