* ShoutOut: In the pilot, Chance and Winston are paid by client [[DarkAngel Lydecker]] in [[Film/DieHard Takagi]] whiskey, and at the end of the episode, the new protectee is [[Film/LethalWeapon Danny Glover]].
** In "Sanctuary", the head of a robbery gang's name is [[SplinterCell Sam Fisher.]] Looks like the guy decided to retire and be a crook instead.
** In "Lockdown", Layla's username is [[Film/{{Watchmen}} "Nite Owl"]]. Granted, she's a security guard, but still...
** Carmine, the rottweiler, is named after Carmine Infantino the co-creator of ''Human Target''.
** "Salvage & Reclamation" has several to ''Franchise/IndianaJones''.
** "Imbroglio" had a reference to ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'', particularly 2008's ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' with the hostages being framed as gunmen by using their disguises on them.
** "Kill Bob" despite its name has a huge shout outs to ''MrAndMrsSmith'' with more than one reference placed into the very iconic dinner scene from the movie... ''with'' the appropriate background "Assassin's Date" score (or an homage score that's very much like it. I couldn't tell.)

* FragileSpeedster: Guerrero to an extent. It's suggested that he may actually be a more skilled fighter than Chance (or at the very least, considerably more ruthless). His small size makes him (arguably) more vulnerable to larger opponents (as demonstrated by the cleaner, Chicago), or multiple opponents, as shown in "Imbroglio" when a group of mooks literally dog piles on him compared a similar fight scene in the same episode where Chance is able to toss mooks around more easily and thus allow him to face one or two standing opponents at a time. On the other hand, in "Marshall Pucci", we get a sneak peek at how Guerrero probably typically operates which is not straight up fist fights. As [[Series/BurnNotice Mr. Weston]] noted, [[CombatPragmatist "Spies aren't trained to fight fair. Spies are trained to win."]] Guerrero is more the Cowl to Chance's Cape.

** a ''forty-dollar'' prostitute, which is what really pisses her off.
