-->''Doreen'': A lot of people would probably have done this for free just to play at it. Maybe someone might have thought it was worth a favor, especially if you didn’t know how. But he had you give him five ''gross'' favors. Five times a gross, 144. Five times 4 is twenty... carry the two... Seven hundred and twenty favors.

* BadGuyBar - "It was the typical bar like you'd find on earth, with big guys looking like bikers."
* BaitAndSwitchTyrant - Marilyn, the deputy Administrator and later Administrator of the Welcoming Department is initially a vile boss. But it's okay, she's only like that [[FreudianExcuse because she was molested as a child]]! Once she gets some IntimatePsychotherapy, she's much more reasonable. Somehow. See also ''SugarAndIcePersonality'' below.
* BarBrawl - "Two guys in the back were beating the crap out of each other, and nobody was noticing."

* BerserkButton: If a person who is dead in the Afterlife decides to go back to earth to be born again, that's being "recycled." If they decide to be reborn in the opposite sex, that's called "getting a Real Sex Change." Do not be stupid and ask Supervisor 246 when someone will be back from getting a real sex change. He will know you're so cluelessly ignorant he might punch your lights out.

* HoldYourHippogriffs - Since people can't die in the Afterlife, you can't say "As serious as a heart attack." However, if someone does something really bad, they are sentenced by the court to be "involuntarily recycled," i.e. returned to earth forcibly to start over as a baby, the equivalent of Capital Punishment. So, when someone ''really'' means it, they say, "As serious as involuntary recycling."

* IdTellYouButThenIdHaveToKillYou: The author breaks the fourth wall to tell a story about his relationship with the intelligence community in an indirect way, then actually uses this phrase to explain why he can't be more direct.
