* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Dr. Mark Sloan demonstrated a shocking amount of GenreSavvy in a multi-part arc in which he was kidnapped by the deranged son and daughter of a serial bomber who had been executed [[YouKilledMyFather as a result of Sloan's investigation]]. Even as a hostage he succeeded in playing the siblings against each other while providing clues to his son the cop and other partners in crime-solving that led them to the kidnappers. A federal agent assigned to the case supplied the [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]]; "Some people you should ''not'' kidnap! I swear, [[StatingTheSimpleSolution if Mark Sloan is your enemy, shoot him in the head,]] otherwise he ''will'' make you suffer!"

* ThePerfectCrime: Nicely played with in an episode where a killer details his "perfect" plan for a murder. That's followed by the crime where ''nothing'' goes to plan. Still, he pulls it off only to be tripped up not because of any of his mistakes but because his attempt to frame an innocent person for the crime is ''too'' good. Sloane notes that it's the first case where the suspect is so incredibly obvious from the start and thus got suspicious of the "evidence" to find out the truth.
