* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The second time we see Simon, he's wearing loose white clothing, walking around on a beach barefoot, has grown a beard, and makes lots of Biblical references. Simon being Simon, the {{Jesus}} impression may be deliberate.

** In one, Michael sends a care package to Hank from ''RoyalPains.'' A care package that contained sunglasses, suntan lotion, and ''C4 plastic explosives''. Because "you never know when you might need a stable plastic explosive." ''To a concierge doctor!'' Hilarity ensues.

* EveryManHasHisPrice:
** Michael explains that is possible to bribe even the most upstanding officials. To do so, convince them you think the bribe is a standard fee and make yourself as thoroughly unlikeable as possible so that they don't feel bad for ripping you off and making themselves a few bucks richer.
** In one memorable episode, Michael tries to bribe a foreign official, who ''immediately'' tries to have him arrested. They then have Fiona approach him as a CIA agent trying to catch Michael, and offers to "cover expenses" if he plays along with their sting. Michael comments that convincing someone that they can make money by doing the right thing even works on the incorruptible.

** The subtitles, one of the series' main gimmicks, started as fairly straight-forward ID devices. Once or twice in the early seasons they included snark. By the third season they use them to [[PaintingTheMedium Paint The Medium]], being almost entirely snarky and insulting. Notable highlights include "Evil Son of a Bitch," "Probably Not An Alien," "УCTУПКИ" ([[InteractiveNarrator answering the question]] "is there a Russian word for hardass?"), "Charmless Sleazebag", and "Pathetic Excuse of Man".

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0WNJx7Ys2Y A more recent commercial]] has Michael and Fiona at a restaurant. Fiona is digging through her purse and leaves a handgun on the table, which [[WhiteCollar FBI Agent Peter Burke]] spots and questions her about it, and Fiona [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial feigns ignorance]]. Then a grenade rolls out of her purse... Michael's resulting FacePalm is well deserved. And epic.
