Despite being "undercover" police officers, both Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs appear in situations where drug dealers and other criminals would be able to discover that they are not who they claim to be. Suspects are even brought in their offices and can see that Tubbs and Crockett are sworn law enforcement officers.
Three episodes of the series have these additional songs playing at the closing credits instead of the show's original theme song: "Calderone's Return": Tina Turner - "What's Love Got to Do With It?"; this song plays over footage of Crockett and Tubbs riding a speedboat, plus flashbacks of Tubbs and Angelina. "Phil the Shill": Phil Collins - "Life is a Rat Race" and "Freefall" (final episode): Terry Kath - "Tell Me"; this song plays over a montage of scenes from the show.
