* FriendsRentControl: {{Averted}}. Despite being a private practice Doctor, Becker still lives in a modest apartment. He also mentions that his car is "Held together with duct tape". Though it's mentioned several times that Becker's practice is in a poor neighborhood and his patients are frequently short of cash and are unable to fully pay. It's also implied in The Pilot that he's quite charitable to his poorer patients.

* ItsThePrincipleOfTheThing: Becker's usual attitude, with Margaret futilely telling him to let whatever it is go. Sometimes it seems to work - see his confrontation with the journalist who mistook him for a racist in "PC World" - but more often it gets in trouble, such as when he got banned from Thriftymart.

** He's got a surprising amount of patience even with some of the stupid ones. Such as the woman who asked-after being told to only drink clear fluids until she got better-whether orange juice and milk would be okay. And then asked if vodka would be good for her, being a clear fluid.
** One episode states that the reason why Becker's office is located where it's located is so that he can help people that otherwise wouldn't have access to medical help.
** He also frequently accepts gifts such as baked goods and Sports tickets instead of money as many people don't have much.

** ''Subway Story'' has his patience tested when he guides an old lady to where she wants to go, before he starts to figure out that she was going to Ground Zero.

* WhamLine: The second to last episode of the series has Becker guiding an old woman through the subway system to a destination. When they arrive, she won't go up the stairs, and recounts on her last conversation with her son who died. Then it comes: "It was such a beautiful September day..." and you can see the recognition on Becker's face.
