* AesopAmnesia: To an extent. Pembleton tells Bayliss that he's to embrace his vices and get to know them in order to be virtuous, because virtue isn't real virtue if it hasn't been tested. Because the context was a discussion of exploration of sexuality, Bayliss takes this to heart and learns to embrace the darker side of his sexuality, eventually identifying as bi-sexual. However, Pembleton's advice had a clear, non-sexual, element to it that Bayliss totally missed. As a result, he does not apply Pembleton's advice in dealing with his cases and [[spoiler: Bayliss eventually snaps and executes Luke Ryland when he is freed on a technicality]]

* TheBigBoard: One of the things that made the series unique. Cases would be tracked by use of a giant dry erase whiteboard. Open cases would be in red and closed cases would be in black, with reopened cold cases in blue. They used a similar (but not exactly the same) board in the actual Baltimore Police Department and in Series/TheWire.
