** Hardison's utter confusion at the auction house having a hilariously out of date computer system. Nate and Sophie have to explain to him that they're probably going to have hard-copy files instead of computer records.

'''Eliot''': ''*proceeds to nonchalantly beat the crap out of the three mobsters, then apologises to one of them*''
*** The one he apologised to and why deserves mention. It was the same guy brained with the baking tray earlier. Apparently it broke his nose and, during the fight, Eliot hit him in said broken nose. ''Twice.''

*** Though one gets the feeling that Bonnano knows ''exactly'' what is going down and is just enjoying HangingALampshade on it. Especially as he's seen in a later episode playing poker with Nate and the team(albeit including him in a takedown of a neighborhood loan shark).

** Sophie takes it as a personal affront when "Nikki" grabs Duberman away from her, angrily denouncing her as a "bloody little slut" and later delivering a rant about how cheerleaders like "Nikki" ruined high school for girls like her as she beats the crap out of her. Considering that Sophie grew up in British high society and probably never set foot in an American high school, one could probably assume that she's gotten horribly (and hilariously) LostInCharacter.



** When Archie says [[spoiler: he's Parker's father.]] You can actually pinpoint the moment where Eliot's brain broke in half.

** Sophie impersonates a drunk Boston party girl in order to help her, Eliot, and Hardison get into a precinct building with no trouble. Her obnoxious accent is hilarious.



** Sophie pumps Parker, who's been serving as CorruptPolitician Debra Pierce's aide, for any information they could use against her. Only to find out that Parker has been paying attention to ''exactly the wrong quirks'' of the mark (she puts her black and blue pens in the same container! The fiend!). This, coupled with Parker's casual mention of the one useful piece of info - [[spoiler: Pierce and Blackwell are having an affair]] - really makes a viewer wonder what [[CloudCuckoolander Parker]] judges to be suspicious behavior...
