*** And in a later episode, he was dealing with a GenreSavvy South American drug dealer. When the dealers car didn't start, he immediately got out, since, as the narration pointed out, he was GenreSavvy enough to know that in his line of work, a car acting up may mean a bomb. There wasn't; [[CallBack Michael had removed the spark plugs.]]

** Sophine from "Fight or Flight". Despite EVERYONE telling her she needs to lay low and having already escaped one hit squad, she still sneaks out of the safe house to go to her Spring Formal. Worse, she stands right in front of the building, in plan view of everyone, kissing a guy she barely knows. Even as a car comes up and guys chase them she is still whining about Michael being mean; it isn't until the guys hit the glass door with their guns out that [[OhCrap she is seconds away from death]]. And even then her biggest concern is that she'll never see her new boyfriend ever again.
