* AsTheGoodBookSays: Charlie doesn't quote anything specific from Literature/TheBible, but when he tries to make David feel better by telling him about his own troubles with his father (Charlie put his father in a nursing home because he was starting to go senile, and at the end, his father didn't even recognize Charlie), and David says he thought Charlie was the perfect son, Charlie gently replies, "[[{{Jesus}} They told me there was only one of those guys]]."

* [[CountingToThree Counting To Ten]]: When David tries telling Woolridge he can't be at the final presentation because Max will be in surgery, Woolridge threatens David by telling him he's giving him until the count of ten to change his mind.

* DeadpanSnarker: David fits this trope pretty well, and Donna and Max also qualify. Cheryl Ann, who otherwise DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm, even has one moment of this near the end as well, which astonishes David.
