The original airdate of this episode is the only time that the full episode has aired. All repeats of "C.O.D.," including on cable channels that air 'binge-a-thons' of the series, show Briscoe's final departure from the precinct with two edits: both the presentation of a framed caricature and the lingering shot of his nameplate are deleted. All DVD issuances of season 14 also include this edited version. See more
