* TheNotLoveInterest: To Chen, despite a mutual attraction, occasional flirtation and them being one of the show's FanPreferredCouple s, it never goes beyond friendship.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Her modus operandi was basically to pretend to be someone's friend/ally before screwing them over in order to save herself. This was so prevalent that one of her victims outright said "I knew she was capable of this, I just didn't think she'd do it to me"

** Made Doug's life hell and tried to sabotage Doug's career advancement because he was such a cowboy, and yet almost as soon as he leaves she tries to circumvent a standing DNR order (because she thought the woman was her biological mother)--then months later hounds Mark for for doing the same thing, having the gall to insinuate that Mark isn't being objective because of the recent death of ''his'' mother, even though in this case, the patient had explicitly rescinded her DNR, telling Mark that she didn't want to die just yet.

* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: Basically rips Doug's head off when he calls her by her first name rather than "Dr. [=DelAmico=]" in front of a patient. Keeps doing it even though he apologizes and assures her that he meant nothing improper, "I call Mark (a male doctor) by his first name all the time."

Added DiffLines:

* NosyNeighbor: Shortly after joining the staff, interrogates everyone about why Kerry limps. He finally admits it's none of his business after she confronts him about it, but still fails to learn his lesson--one year later, he does exactly the same thing regarding the paternity of Chen's baby.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Is pissy about Mark and Susan working together, even though they were never really romantically involved, even though every day she works side-by-side with her ex-lover.
** She also chastises a fellow surgeon who asks her to speed up an operation because he wants to go to a ball game, when she herself rushed through an operation because she wanted to leave for a romantic weekend with Mark, permanently crippling the patient (to be fair, it could be that it's because of this error that she's lecturing the other doctor).

* LikesOlderWomen: A good portion of his love interests were slightly (5-6 years) older than him. Chen--who herself was several years older than him and who he enjoyed a mild flirtation with--makes note of this and accuses him of "liking" Weaver; Carter counters that he simply doesn't ''dislike'' her the way everyone else does. He does have a flirtation with Lucy Knight (approximately 5 years his junior) but is quickly able to cut it off before it can go anywhere more than a kiss when he notes how unprofessional it would be. Ultimately [[AvertedTrope averted]] with his final main love interest, Kem, who is roughly the same age as him.

* HonorBeforeReason: Benton discovers Abby Keaton and Carter's relationship when he goes to her office to ask for a recommendation for a pediatric rotation. When she asks if he's threatening to tell TPTB about her and Carter (he's an intern and she's an attending, so it's forbidden), his response?
--> "Dr. Keaton. . .if your recommendation is based on anything but my skills as a doctor, ''I don't want it.''"



* WhatTheHellHero: Abby Keaton gives this to him good and proper after he nearly kills an infant during surgery, blasting him for disregarding her instructions and not calling for help the minute he realized he was in over his head.



* {{Hypocrite}}: Countless instances of her criticizing people for doing things she had done or would do herself. Most notably, she tried to sabotage Doug's career advancement because he was such a cowboy, and yet almost as soon as he leaves she tries to circumvent a standing DNR order (because she thought the woman was her biological mother)--then months later hounds Mark for for doing the same thing, having the gall to insinuate that Mark isn't being objective because of the recent death of ''his'' mother, even though in this case, the patient had explicitly rescinded her DNR, telling Mark that she didn't want to die just yet.
** Also when she pulls out all the stops to make sure Chen and Malucci are severely punished for their part in a patient's death--firing the latter and suspending the former, yet is just as vigilant in making sure that she herself incurs no punishment, even though as their supervisor, she bore the ultimate responsibility.
** She also pleads with her ex-lover Kim to fight Romano's efforts at firing her (because she's a lesbian)--while she herself continues to keep her mouth shut.
* HypocriteHasAPoint: After a patient dies because he slept with a paramedic on duty, Dave is fired by Kerry for irresponsibility. Although Kate, as Dave's supervisor, should have kept a closer eye on him, Dave's behavior is indeed completely unbefitting of that of a doctor.
