* FakeAssistedSuicide: Lazarus Long is twenty three hundred years old and just wants to die. The staff of the clinic holding him sabotages his suicide device so that when he tries to use it he's just rendered unconscious instead of dying. They do this so they can continue the rejuvenation process that will make him feel like wanting to live again. The "suicide switch" also wipes his short-term memory so he won't remember that it didn't work and will think that his "grandson" is honoring all terms of the deal.
