* TheMatchmaker: Brenda's job. Her record is patchy at best; when Richard shows up at her office, she has just paired off a man and a woman with a shared interest in beekeeping, but as the newly-matched couple leave her office, the woman reveals herself to be an overbearing control freak who plans to shape her new husband into a clone of her deceased first husband, while the man is too timid to raise any objections.

** Richard is such an unpleasant person that he almost deserves getting wrongfully convicted of murder. One wonders what Babs sees in him. However, it's possible Richard could be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold if he does care about Babs and presumably Brenda despite treating her poorly that after learning about their deaths and he's been framed for them, Richard's desire to kill Rusk, the real killer, was possibly not just out of getting back at him for framing him, but also for taking away the two women he was close to from his life.

* MoralityPet: It seems Richard's ex-wife Brenda and his girlfriend Barbara are this each to Richard, even though Richard still act like a misogynistic MeanBrit towards Brenda. When Richard learns Brenda and Babs are killed and he is accused for their deaths, it can be assumed Richard, after learning Rusk is the real killer, desired to face the killer not just to clear his name, but to also to avenge the deaths of Brenda and Babs, the two close women who seemed to understood him.
