** Played with in case of Jonathan. At the end of "Mother Redcap", he makes Caesar Salad for Maddie who then loudly decries it as the worst thing she's ever tasted. However, as they are leaving to eat out, she slips back and eats another bite, proving that the meal was actually good and she was just messing with Jonathan so he wouldn't feel so superior all the time.



*** And her funeral, at the end of the episode, has a similar mood whiplash [[spoiler: when it's suddenly invaded by a vengeful streaker.]]



* PutOnABusToHell: This didn't ''exactly'' happen to Carla Burrego, but in "The Grinning Man" she still gets a rather mean-spirited mention, in which Jonathan Creek learns that she's been telling people that he died of a wasting illness. Apparently writer David Renwick and actress Julia Sawalha didn't get along, which may explain the pettiness of the comments.

** At the End or "Reconstituted Corpse", Maddie and Jonathan come back from a funeral. It eventually turns out that it was a funeral of a ''circus elephant'' and, judging from their comments, it was definitely plagued with some unfortunate mishaps.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Twice. In "No Trace of Tracy", Maddy interviews a man in a sound-proof room whilst his colleagues have a brawl in the two-way mirror behind them, and in "Time Waits for Norman", Maddy holds a conversation with a man outside his house whilst Jonathan snoops around for clues and gets attacked by a vicious Jack Russell. A dismayed Maddy sees all this through the bay windows.

[[spoiler; To add insult to injury, it turns out that it was not even the man's house -- he was just doing some yardwork for an old lady who lived there, so there WERE no clues to be found in the first place.]]

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Played with in "Satan's Chimney"; Carla comes on stage with a phone in her hands to tell Alan Kalanak "It's Vivian" (referring to Kalanak's ex-wife, Vivian Brodie, the ep's murder victim). As Jonathan later notes, [[spoiler:anyone else in that scenario would assume Carla meant that it was Vivian ''on the phone'', but Alan immediately asks what ''happened'' to Vivian, planting the first seeds in Jonathan's mind that Kalanak was responsible for her murder]].
