* LetsGetDangerous: Jeremiah is the most passive and level headed of the group. His wrestling match with Angel and confrontation shows that when he's pushed, he can even make [[BadAss Bobby]] Backdown.

* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: When the brothers find that Evelyn had been corresponding with a local attorney, they force him to tell them what he knows by giving him a pink-belly in the snow. (For the uninitiated, this is a tactic more suited to elementary school bullies than professional torturers). As it turns out, he and Evelyn had been dating in secret, and he had nothing to do with why she was killed.
