Added DiffLines:

* FingertipDrugAnalysis: When going through Latka's cookies, he was able to find out the secret ingredient was actually coca leaves. Just by chewing through them, he could pinpoint where it was grown and the quality, the same way some people can identify a fine wine.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: No one, except Jim and perhaps Latka. The "friend" part is questionable, but he does start to hang out with the cabbies outside of the garage more and more as the series progresses.

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: A single marijuana-laced brownie sent the bright, wealthy, and promising young James Caldwell into a downward spiral of drugs in the '60s and transformed him into the Jim Ignatowski that the cabbies all know and love.

** Which was borrowed by TheSimpsons (and played much darker, considering Homer led into the flashback by asking, "After all I've done for you?") as the origin of worthless drunk Barney Gumble. Barney was a bright high school student studying for the UsefulNotes/SATs with a future at Harvard. And then Homer told him to lighten up and handed him a beer...

* OnlySaneMan: And how. When your friends and co-workers include an egotistical actor, a wacky immigrant mechanic, a burned-out relic of the '60s, a boxer one straw short of a haystack, and a vile toad of a dispatcher who likes to torture his employees, you know you must be the most normal one of the bunch.
