** In a straighter example, Jack and Jo. Professional co-workers and good friends, there's hardly any sexual tension between them. To the point where, when Carter has to demonstrate "inappropriate workplace behavior" with Jo for a sexual harassment seminar, the two can't get through the exercise without breaking out laughing. [[spoiler: When they find out "Matrix Eureka" decided the two of them would make a good couple, they're the only two who recognize how implausible that is.]]

** In a milder version, Carter and Allison wind up attached to each other via a heavily-magnetized fence. No, Allison, that's ''not'' his belt buckle. . .

* BrokenPedesta: In "Family Reunion," Fargo's uncle Pierre, frozen in 1957, is thawed out. The man is amazed to learn that many of the scientific devices and ideas Eureka was based on are being credited to his partner, Sandrov when Pierre came up with them all. Stark, who counts Sandrov as one of his idols, is naturally unbelieving until Pierre recites perfectly how these devices came to be. Confronted at a party, Sandrov confesses that when Pierre vanished, he decided to claim all his research as his own and Stark is stunned to realize his hero is a fraud.

** A somewhat literal example: in "Insane in the P-Brane", Dr. Drechmeyer is obsessed with TIRD particles. "TIRD" is pronounced the same as "turd", a euphemism for excrement. "Drech" is pronounced the same as "[[http://www.dictionary.com/browse/dreck dreck]]", a Yiddish word for excrement. "[[http://www.ancestry.com/name-origin?surname=meyer Meyer]]" has several possible meanings, one of which is "overseer". You do the math...
*** As though driving the point home, one time Dr. Drechmeyer refers to himself as "The Drechman."
*** May also qualify as a StealthPun.
