* GoLookAtTheDistraction: Season 11 opened with the Hillstrands lighting up thousands of dollars worth of fireworks (safely, on land) to the delight of "practically the entire population of Unalaska" [[Spoiler: which was just a distraction so Sig, Edgar, and Jake Anderson could move the Cape Caution as a prank so Wild Bill would think he'd gone senile]].

''Deadliest Catch'' is a long-running (in its 11th season and counting) DocuSoap RealityTV show on The Creator/DiscoveryChannel that follows crews of fishermen during their two seasons on the rough Bering Sea seeking a valuable commodity -- the [[GiantEnemyCrab enormous red king crab]] around October, and the opilio or snow crab around January. It is repeatedly stated that this is the "deadliest job in the world", and tragedy does occur, such as the sinking of other ships, as well as serious injuries and near-fatal accidents on the featured boats. The opilio season is particularly dangerous due to weather concerns. The show debuted in April, 2005 and is still ongoing.

** Why Jake Anderson's dad disappeared: [[spoiler:He was addicted to prescription drugs and bought them from "someone [Jake] didn't know" and was subsequently murdered on an isolated logging trail. After his dad's drug addiction was revealed the community "turned their backs" on the family; ironically the day before he was killed Jake and his family had decided to stage an intervention.]]

* IsThatTheBestYouCanDo: See DoNotTauntCthulhu above. We're talking TemptingFate territory here.



* TenMinuteRetirement: Edgar Hansen has taken several short breaks from the ''Northwestern'' for various reasons, but has always returned. At times it's been because of friction between he and Sig over Edgar possibly wanting to captain the boat, others have been because of medical reasons.
* ThousandYardStare:
** Phil does this when his son Jake confesses that he's addicted to drugs. It almost crosses into HeroicBSOD territory, especially the way Phil seems to age ten years in as many seconds.
** Jake Anderson does a pretty good one in the commercials.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
** [[InvokedTrope Said word for word]] by Sig as an arctic hurricane bore down on the fleet in Season 8.

* {{Badass}}:
** The captains and crews, in a nutshell. Rodeo cowboys, firefighters, even Navy [=SEALs=] have all been unable to handle for more than a single season (in some cases, even a single day) the strain that fishermen who smoke too much, sleep too little, and don't eat well deal with year after year. More specifically:
** Jr.'s dad, "The Colonel" (according to one factoid no one knows how he got that nickname).
** Phil's dad is pretty bad ass, considering he and his crew survived a storm that knocked out all their power and they had to get back to port ''with no navigation'' and learned that everyone (including Phil, who was in the hospital) thought they were dead. He's still alive, too.
** Among the few returnees are Josh and Jake Harris and Jake Anderson, and they all looked like scrawny teenagers when they first appeared (Jake Harris still does). Then there's goofy, long-haired hippie-ish Nick, AKA "Sunshine".
** Captain Mike Wilson on the ''Kiska Sea'' counts - by controlling the hydros FROM THE FRICKIN' WHEELHOUSE!

Added DiffLines:

* TheReliableOne:
** Although everyone likes to talk about how Edgar keeps the ''Northwestern'' running, Norman is really the most reliable member of that crew, quietly doing his job with none of the tantrums and drama that the other crewmembers bring to the boat.
** Aboard the ''Saga'', Nick "Sunshine" Tokman has become this for Jake, being the one who is able to catch the tricks deckhands use to try and get out of trouble with their captain.
