* SentientVehicle: Tabitha, the AI in Fargo's old LeBaron in "If You Build It..." She gets moody and temperamental when Fargo doesn't take the time to give her proper maintenance or cleaning, and she acts like a jealous ex-girlfriend when Fargo ditches her for a newer car.

* ProductPlacement: While slightly present since the start (All the video phones in Eureka apparently use [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_Systems Cisco Systems]]), became blatant and omnipresent in season 3. They at least attempt to justify it by throwing in a new boss who implements what causes it in an effort to make the research done in the town more profitable, but ([[http://www.reallifecomics.com/comic.php?comic=title-2058 as Real Life Comics nicely captures]]) it's still painful to watch. Especially given that... "Here Come The Suns" is pretty much one long ad for Degree, and in "If You Build It..." Jo, Fargo, and Fargo's Smart Car Tabitha (a LeBaron convertible) unabashedly extol the Subaru Impreza WRX.

* {{Robosexual}}: A platonic variant between Fargo and Tabitha in "If You Build It...", lampshaded by Jo after Tabitha starts to act like ''Christine''.
-->'''Jo:''' You know what? This is your own fault. If you had taken better care of Tabitha instead of dumping her on Larry...

Added DiffLines:

* TheAllegedCar: Tabitha in "If You Build It..." has a host of mechanical problems, including a cracked engine block. Mostly, though, she's actually a moody AI that's upset because of how long it's been since Fargo "rotated her tires, detailed her dash, or [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything gave her a good buffing]]".
