Added DiffLines:
* HerosClassicCar: Westen drives his father's 1977 Dodge Charger. {{Justified}} in that, thanks to the burn notice, his records are all screwed up so he can't legally purchase a newer vehicle, but because of the car's age and his father's ... [[PercussiveMaintenance approach]] to vehicular maintenance he's frequently having to repair various things (the DVD featurettes note there's some RealitySubtext here: [[TheAllegedCar the vehicle used in the show had regular problems]]). [[spoiler:Michael is forced to bomb the Charger to delay pursuers in the season 4 finale.]]

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: She's often calm and relaxed, but "Do No Harm" (where her operation has been severely compromised) is the first time she's on edge.

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: [[spoiler: He appeared once in the first half of Season 2 as a mook for Carla, but the second half of the season is driven by him turning on the Organization.]]

* BatmanGambit: He attacks Michael in "Hard Times" not out of revenge, but to get him out of Vaughn's listening range so he can reveal a key piece of information.

* CrazyPrepared: [[spoiler:After his falling out with the Organization, he coded a Bible to reveal their identities. He knew he couldn't make significant use of it, so he made a deal with Barrett in order to play that card effectively.]]

* EvilerThanThou: The Organization fired and imprisoned Simon due to him being out of control.

* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: He didn't have much trouble planning his escape while in it with [[spoiler:Gilroy]]'s assistance.

* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: He didn't have much trouble planning his escape while in it with [[spoiler:Gilroy]]'s assistance. [[spoiler:Though Season 4 reveals Simon had help on the outside from John Barrett]].

* SmallRoleBigImpact: [[spoiler:His final appearance lasts only 10 minutes. It's the most important 10 minutes of the season.]]
to:
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He appears three times total and each time has far-reaching consequences: ** His actions in Season 3's "Devil You Know" ultimately lead to the Organization getting its hooks in Michael again and working more proactively with him, which (among other things) gets Jesse burned. ** He makes one appearance in Season 4 ("Hard Times"), but in addition to filling in some key details to the current story arc, the entire season hinges on [[spoiler:the deal he made with Barrett and the Bible he coded, which reveals the identities of those in the Organization]]. This, of course, adversely changes the status quo in Season 5. ** [[spoiler:His final appearance lasts only 10 minutes. It's the most important 10 minutes of the season.]]

Added DiffLines:
* VisionaryVillain: He may do unsavory things but he has a definite vision of how to make the world a better place and is so strongly committed to it he'd even willingly sacrifice himself to ensure the Family can carry on.

** PutOnABusTripToHell: After the aforementioned season 6 cameo, Jason Bly tells Michael in the finale that Riley found out about the phone call anyway, arrested Sugar, and is doing god-knows-what to him in some unknown prison. This becomes FridgeHorror when it's later seen [[TortureFirstAskQuestionsLater what she's willing to do]] to Jesse and Sam.]]

* WeNeedADistraction: Sam ''specializes'' in making distractions, often [[LargeHam the hammiest]] and [[RefugeInAudacity most audacious]] possible.

* WeNeedADistraction: Sam ''specializes'' in making distractions, often [[LargeHam the hammiest]] and [[RefugeInAudacity most audacious]] possible. Further justified in that if a beautiful woman like Fi tries this, odds are the macho guards will want her to stay around, compared to a hammy and boisterous man like Sam will annoy them and want him to leave.

* {{Expy}}: Of [[{{Scrubs}} Dr. Cox]]. Tom has so many of the same mannerisms as Dr. Cox (the "attention whistle" and the way he rants) that you almost expect him to call Michael a girl's name or "newbie." It probably helps that they are [[HeyItsThatGuy played by the same actor]]. [[spoiler:Subverted in the end however, as Cox is a KnightInSourArmor crossed with GoodIsNotNice, while Card is ultimately a self serving manipulator only looking out for himself and his agenda]].
