* SuperCellReception: Operatives on the Global Frequency had really cool phones that appeared to use their own satellite network and give users access to any electronic resource Aleph could hack into. They also had audio/video capabilities that were terribly advanced when the graphic novels came out, but in late 2009 seem roughly on par with high-end iPhones and the like. This proves that writers don't need to bypass cell phones to create tension; these geeks kick ass, but they still get into trouble the phones can't gimmick them out of.

* GovernmentConspiracy: Deconstructed. Several of the threats that pop up in the series are the result of governments doing naughty things that they shouldn't be doing when no one's looking... however, since these governments can be just incompetent as they can be in RealLife, nine times out of ten they completely fuck everything up and Global Frequency have to swoop in and clean up their messes.

* HaveIMentionedIAmSexuallyActiveToday: After the female lead reels off a very lengthy list of her academic qualifications, all acquired at a very young age (she's no older than thirty), the male lead makes a joke about how she mustn't have found much time for a life in the process. She gets surprisingly touchy and insists at length that she did, ending with the [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial unconvincing and unsolicited information]] that she "had boyfriends". The clear implication is that she's still a virgin.
