* BilingualBonus: In "Letter Never Sent" part of the Stockholm train station is covered by a banner. In Swedish it reads "Dasg för ett hröseltest?", basically something like "Tiem for a hreaing test?"... -Maybe they should throw in a ''[[SarcasmMode spleling test]]'' while they're at it.
Also, the tall Finn in the heavy sweater is swearing and complaining (in Finnish-accented Swedish) about having to "climb like a monkey" to fix his lamp.
Oh, and Copenhagen is generally pronounced wrong on this show.

** Oh, and no, Arthur, you can't turn Copenhagen into ''København'' just by pronouncing it with an "aah" near the end. It's actually closer to "cuh-ben-houn".

* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: In "Letter Never Sent" Annie and Danielle's [[BilingualBonus Swedish]] is almost impenetrable. Of course, they only spent one year in the country as kids. Contrast with the tall Finn in the heavy sweater; he's swearing and complaining ([[BilingualBonus in Finnish-accented Swedish]]) about having to "climb like a monkey" to fix his lamp.

* CunningLinguist: Annie speaks, well, at least 6+ languages fluently: English, Russian, German, Spanish, Hebrew, and Portuguese, and she knows enough Turkish "to get by." (Her French may or may not be in this category, as the only time she's used it, her cover was an American expatriate.) It's one of the reasons she was recruited into the CIA. She also apparently knows at least some Italian as well, because in one episode she has to trade an Italian journalist for an American spy and she completely understands his ranting and even responds in Italian. She also understands Arabic, but she can only speak the cuss words. Estonian is her only weakness as she knows only the cuss words and not much else. Also, her Swedish is ''rather hard!'' to decipher.

** Augie probably qualifies, seeing as how he's spoken, what, ''arabic, spanish, French'' and ''Chechan'' so far on screen.

* BrokenBird: Annie spent most of her life putting up emotional barriers, and when she finally let them down and fell in love, her paramour left in the middle of the night with nothing more than a note. And so, she explains, she keeps her guard up. [[spoiler:And in season 5, we see that she has been experiencing panic attacks and this is what delayed her return to the States for four months.]]
