Cue OhCrap just before Jenoff [[NotQuiteDead regenerates his head]].

*** In fact, mundane weaponry is the ''accepted'' way for wizards to kill if it ever must come to that, as killing humans with magic carries not just the obvious moral and legal ramifications but also [[TheDarkSide corrupts the soul]]. The Council's enforcers carry big ol' swords for this reason. And Harry in specific is already on thin ice with the Council thanks to [[spoiler:killing his EvilMentor with magic when he was a teenager; the fact that it was self-defense doesn't soften their opinion of him]].

%%* ''{{Eureka}}''. Every episode seems to end this way as the super-scientists are always going to complex ways to solve a problem (which, nine times out of ten, they themselves created). It's Sherrif Carter who suggests an idea so simple it never occurs to the geniuses and it works.

* While many of the cons on ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' are very detailed and complex, quite often, they end up going to rather simple solutions. As Nate puts it, the simple cons are ''always'' the best.
