* ''Series:YouMeAndTheApocalypse'': Father Jude has his own approach to things, he smokes like a chimney, swears like a sailor and has a generally casual attitude but he is a devout priest with real faith in his God and a caring man.

* Most of the cast of ''NewsRadio'' fits this description: for all their quirks, Jimmy James is an excellent businessman, Bill and Catherine are great announcers, Dave is a great news director, Lisa is great reporter, Joe is a great handyman and electrician, and, despite her laziness, Beth is about as good a secretary as the insane people around her could expect. Only Matthew can be said to be legitimately incompetent at his job. (Even then he's hyper competant at his real job as a Dentist, Radio is his passion he sucks at).

* The doctor who delivers Phoebe's babies on ''Series/{{Friends}}'' is obsessed with [[HappyDays Fonzie]], brings him up constantly and insists on watching ''Series/HappyDays'' every day, even if he's delivering a baby while doing so. He's also the head of the department and delivers triplets without a hitch.

* Dorothy in ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' once dated a [[Creator/DickVanDyke lawyer]] who wanted to retire from law and become a circus clown. He was very serious about this. When the Girls got in trouble over an environmental protest, the lawyer comes to their rescue -- [[CrowningMomentOfFunny wearing part of his clown costume]].

* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[RobotGirl Cameron]] has her... quirks. Some of them being homicidal rampages. However, she's just too damn useful - being the only one among the Connors' group who can go toe-to-toe with a Terminator.
* Bob Pinciotti from ''That70sShow''. A cheerful, dim-witted, somewhat immature man who is completely hopeless when it comes to taking care of himself, has the worst fashion sense of anyone on the show, and is given to try some strange quirks alongside his wife Midge (among them nudist and wife-swapping parties). He's also an incredible businessman, owning at least 2 establishments of his own over the course of the series and well-known to be a rather wealthy bastard throughout it. It's also worth noting that while both businesses eventually went under, it was due entirely to big businesses coming in and robbing him of all his customers with prices he couldn't hope to compete with (specifically noting that Price-Mart sold microwaves for less than the wholesale price Bob had to pay the manufacturers).

* ''TheBigBangTheory'': averted by Sheldon Cooper. Despite being allegedly of the most brilliant scientific minds on the planet, he gets fired, is not asked to return (nor is hired by anyone else) and only manages to get his job back because [[spoiler:his mother seduced his boss]]. Most telling, the people he calls friends can barely stand him and usually only go along with his plans because they'd literally never hear the end of it from him. He's constantly having to defend his behavior to his boss, and usually ends having to back down because he knows his boss will be all too happy to fire him again.
* Judge Stone from NightCourt. Ironically enough, with all his wacky co-workers & clientele, he often comes off as the OnlySaneMan, despite his own undeniable quirks.

* Ari Gold from ''{{Entourage}}''. He yells racist homophobic sexist or just degrading insults to pretty much everyone but still (almost) always gets his way. Maybe averted in the end of Season 7.

* Dr. Geiger from ''ChicagoHope'' had some quirky habits of playing music in the operating room, dealing with stress by taking off his pants and playing with trains in his office, and just generally being a strange person who was not very easy to get along with. But he was also a brilliant heart surgeon, so people were willing to put up with it.

* Neatly subverted on ''ThisIsWonderland'', where no quirk is harmless. One mild example, Elliot Sacks, started out with long hair and a mildly scruffy appearance, but later went through an identity crisis that had him coming to work dressed in a different style every day. Apparently the only person who could get away with [[CourtroomAntic that sort of behaviour]] was ''Judge'' Maxwell Frasier, who wore running shoes into court, loudly complained of boredom and hunger, sang while other people were talking, and would occasionally scream.

* A poker player in ''BlackBooks'' is nick-named "mouse ears", and does in fact, wear huge novelty mouse ears while playing. One of the other players is apparently deaf and blind, but can still apparently play poker quite well.

* The entire staff of [[MegaCorp Veridian Dynamics]] on BetterOffTed, but especially Phil and Lem who are uttery unable to function outside of a laboratory setting but are [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist impossibly brilliant]]. Veronica is also a sociopath who courtship with Mordor the Unforgiving (not Kevin!) involved things like slaughtering a goat.
