** In "The Cross My Heart Job", the villain is an [[EvilOldFolks aged]], terminally ill arms manufacturer who tries to hijack a heart transplant from a 15-year-old boy who will die without it. Reminded of Sam's fate, Nate goes a little crazy; he not only tells the villain his real name and gives him an epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, he actually threatens to kill him--the only time he's ever done so.
*** [[spoiler: Threatens? The villain will ALSO die without the transplant, albeit slightly later.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Most of his disguises simply involve pulling his hair back into a ponytail, donning a pair of glasses and faking this. Taken up to eleven when he tells a lady cop working an impound lot that "I have, uh, a thing for womninunforms... is your job hard?".
