9/9...I was given a code to Bing. Otherwise, I knew of six.

6 for 9.
On the other hand I do know what the Bowery Boys "Routine Six" means - "Louie is in trouble".

I have a different meaning for code 2. Lol. Sorry, I couldn’t resist

Back in college I worked at K-Mart, and they had their own "code" system. "Code Blue" meant "call a doctor", "Code Red" was something else, and "Code" plus a number was a door alarm had gone off, with the number indicating the specific door. "Code Two" was the automotive department entrance.

"Code Five" if it had ever occurred meant that someone was breaking in through the roof in the stockroom.

5/9 .. disappointed because I love this show and watch it all the time. I better start paying more attention.

I love Adam-12, and I thought I’d ace this quiz, but I only got six right. In our defense, I don’t remember ever hearing a code 8 (or some of the other codes) mentioned in any episode.

Got 7 of 9. While in the AF, we used some if the same codes as the civilian police.

I did dismally - 4/9. My only excuse is that when I watched the show, I couldn't take my eyes off of Kent McCord. From ages 8-15, I had an ENORMOUS crush on the man.

* However while every Dragnet episode ended with an epilogue telling what became of the arrested criminal Adam-12 episodes just abruptly ended going straight to closing credits!

Dragnet brought the format with the epilogue over from when it was on radio, even before the earlier black-and-white TV version. In radio you needed some kind of official "wrap-up" so listeners would know the show was over.

I knew Code 3, Code 7 and 10-13 (officer needs assistance, which wasn't even in there). Still managed to get six right...but I don't know how...

6/9 I missed #5, #7, and #9. Lucky guess on #4.

I need a Code Enforcement Officer.
Good thing I’m not in law enforcement.
Sorry out there to people who did and are protecting us.
Thank you.
