* AirVentPassageway: In one episode, some bad guys take over the Montecito security centre. Danny [=McCoy=] uses the air vent system to try and get some intelligence on them. Right after the audience starts wondering why the hotel with "the best security on the strip" has such a gaping security hole, the vent collapses, conspicuously dumping Danny in the middle of his, formerly [[OneManArmy Ed]] [[BadassNormal Deline]]'s office. Logically, [[GenreSavvy Ed knew it would collapse for any intruder.]] Heck, he may have set it up that way deliberately.

** Ed Deline and Jack Keller do this to get info from an effeminate artist by destroying his paintings, virtually giving the guy a heart attack in the process. Subverted in the same episode when Ed tries this approach with another artist. It's a modern art painting however, leading the guy to quip that it [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible can't actually be ruined]].

* AllForNothing: A young man steals something, and one of the Montecito team goes through a lot of trouble to give him a second chance. Turns out that the item he stole was on sale, which made it a lesser crime, so he got off with probation. [[spoiler:He shows up at the casino to thank his guardian angel...and then gets caught lifting a purse on his way out.]]



* AlmightyJanitor: Mike Cannon is an engineer, MIT graduate, and HollywoodNerd. He starts the series as a valet. He's called in to help the actual security staff several times during the first season. Despite his initial reluctance due to actually liking being a valet, and the potential pay cut -- he eventually becomes full-time security staff. In the final season, he's actually promoted to head of security.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateRealityEpisode: There's an episode where Danny imagines himself and his co-workers working at a Las Vegas casino in the 1960s instead of the 2000s. Ed Deline is basically a mobster-turned casino boss as opposed to an ex-CIA agent turned casino manager, Mike faces racism from a {{Jerkass}} diner owner, and Sam Marquez is a hooker operating out of the casino.

** Episode 2.18 starts out with CCTV footage of a guy's head shoved onto a restaurant counter by SylvesterStallone, with his hand concealing nearly all of the man's face. They then remove the hand, fill in the missing features, do the same to the other half of the guy's face, ending up with a complete 3-d rendering of the guy's head by pure guesswork.
