[show]In its third season, when the show moved from CBS to first-run syndication, the new production company wanted the premise inserted into the opening titles so first-time viewers wouldn't wonder what a Canadian Mountie was doing in Chicago.

It became a running gag throughout the third season, as the writers found different ways to insert the line into almost each script, whether it was spoken by Fraser or other characters.
