* HideYourPregnancy: They tried to hide Anne Dudek's second pregnancy, but it really didn't work out too well.
** In season 4, [[spoiler: Joan Campbell]] is revealed to be pregnant in the very first episode, but it should be much too early to tell. Once you know, it's hard ''not'' to see that [[spoiler: Kari Matchett]] actually ''is''!



* NiceGuy: Auggie

* ScullyBox: Annie frequently wears very high heels, even in situations where they would seem counter-indicated. Piper Perabo is 5'5" (166 cm), most of her co-stars have several inches of height on her.

* ArtisticLicense: There's always going to be a few in shows like this, but a somewhat glaring one is Auggie being given Landsat TM data and asking instead of ASTER data. ASTER data is 15 meter resolution, and is obtainable by almost anyone. Google Maps, however, has Digital Globe imagery, which is a commercial company that sells 50 ''centimeter'' resolution imagery, and DG has been selling imagery of that quality for years. For those Tropers not familiar with satellite imagery, that's ''900 times'' better resolution. It's a pretty safe assumption that Auggie could access better than ASTER data, much less need it delivered on a hard drive.

* 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.
