* FamousAncestor: In "Lackadaisy Voodooienne", Serafine claims that her ancestors include Marie Laveau (a famous Voodoo queen) and Jean Lafitte (a famous French pirate). Whether she is actually a descendant of Laveau or Lafitte, is lying about her lineage, or merely means this metaphorically is unclear.

* NoodleIncident: Years before, Rocky took the fall for something so heinous that it shattered his relationship with his aunt and got him kicked out of the house.
-->'''Rocky:''' But then came one of those little family tragedies ... and it had an author ... and with already ink-stained hands, I signed my name on it. It won me a long trip, so the reliable lad could finish school undisturbed ... and so time could dull my fresh reminder face.



* SlowlySlippingIntoEvil: In her desperation to preserve the Lackadaisy, Mitzi becomes more willing to commit immoral acts. She tries to manipulate Wick into investing in Lackadaisy, destroying their relationship in the process. Later, she steals and forges one of Wick's checks in order to cover expenses. Zib calls her out on her behavior.
-->'''Zib:''' You might've gone and married a villain, but I never thought you were made of the same stuff as him.



-->'''Mitzi:''' Where'd the sudden qualms about the cash come from, anyway? Every red cent my husband paid you over the years was blood money of one sort or another, and you ''knew'' it.



* JerkassHasAPoint: Asa does make a valid point about Mitzi lacking the means to continue operating Lackadaisy. He also warns her that she'll be in over her head in the current crime world climate.



* TheDragon: To Atlas years before. He was always at Atlas' side, serving as his "ferocious little shadow", as Bobby explained to Ivy. He now performs a similar role for Asa Sweet.



* HairpinLockpick: He picks the lock on the door of a pool hall hiding a speakeasy.



!!Edmund Church

A wealthy business acquaintance of Wick's.

* JerkassHasAPoint: He's not wrong when he makes cutting comments about how dating Mitzi could ruin Wick's reputation. He also calls Mitzi out for trying to involve him in "criminal reputations".
* PassiveAggressiveCombat: While drinking at Lackadaisy, he repeatedly makes passive aggressive comments to Wick and Mitzi.




* OddFriendship: The deranged Virgil and smooth Zib somehow know each other. Virgil seems to like Zib. Zib pours his heart out to Virgil while intoxicated, then posts Virgil's bail when they're both incarcerated.

incarcerated.
* ShoutOut: Virgil conforts Zib by telling him, "Forget it, Zib. It's Sleazy Town." This is likely a reference to the last line in the film ''Chinatown'', "Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown."

* {{Jerkass}}: He's condescending to Mitzi and teases Mordecai.



** Mordecai does ''not'' have short arms. Suggesting otherwise will leave him very agitated.



* DidntThinkThisThrough: Mordecai shot Sniffles because Sniffles was dripping mucus everywhere. Vitkor pointed out that shooting Sniffles made their vehicle even dirtier.
-->'''Mordecai:''' He was getting snot all over everything.
-->'''Viktor:''' Vell, now he iss getting brains all ova everything.



* NoSell: When Mordecai first meets the Maitre Carrefour cult, Zulie's attempts to entice him only succeed in annoying him, probably because he's an {{asexual}} man who {{hates being touched}}.





to:

\n* PoorCommunicationKills: Elsa calls Viktor's house after Marigold gang thugs visit her house. Mrs. Bapka answers, but because of the language barrier, she never passes along the call to Viktor.
