* TranquilFury: Madeline's domain. Perhaps most terrifyingly used in New Regime:
**I've decided he's going to recover. His will to live is very strong. Your will to save him has to be strong, too. [[DeadlyEuphemism I'll help you.]] Go back inside. Tell your colleagues to do the possible, then the impossible, and then the unthinkable, until he's out of danger. Because when you're finished, Doctor, that room will contain either four living men, or four corpses. Do you understand?

* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: Used to chilling effect in Season Two's Finale "End Game" by Operations and Adrian, especially due to the HarsherInHindsight nature this discussion takes following the Invasion of Iraq and the current rise of ISIS. Operations justifies his support of [[spoiler:Saddam Hussein]] by describing the chaos that would follow if the dictator suddenly fell from power. In a unique take on the trope, Adrian provides her own take on the situation, stating that Operations will use [[spoiler:Hussein]] as an attack dog to seize control of the Middle East and won't stop until he has control over half the world's population and resources.
