** Played with when Emma and Sean go after their DisappearedDad, who vanished when they were kids shortly before their mother died and never showed up again. Sean expects him to be this and had been waiting for years to get back at him; part of his con rests on the idea that his dad (who doesn't recognise them, since they were only kids) will screw him out of a deal. He doesn't, and it never even occurred to him to do so, which leaves Sean shaken. It turned out that he didn't know his wife died and when he found out, he actually did try and find them, to no avail. They are still mad at him, especially since he started another family and didn't tell them what he had done, but they decide not to ruin his new life and only take from him the money they think they are owed in allowance, passing up a chance to rob him of more. He admits to them that he loves and is proud of them before they leave.

It has an [[ThePond across the pond]] [[TransAtlanticEquivalent counterpart]] in ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', though save for general concept and at least one prominent guest star appearing on both shows, the two shows are unrelated.

** Almost everyone they con is white. They con an Indian guy, but then realize that he's not that bad and that they've put his entire factory out of work, so they give him money from another con. In another episode, they're conning an African dictator (and obvious Robert Mugabe [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed parallel]]) but then [[spoiler: it turns out that he was Mickey in disguise, and they're actually conning somebody else]]. Another episode has them conning an Indian sweatshop owner, but [[spoiler: he completely reforms himself, so they can't finish the con]].
