* TeethClenchedTeamwork: One might imagine that they are HeterosexualLifePartners, but both Adam and Jamie have said that they don't like each other and don't spend any time together outside of work. On occasion, especially in the early episodes, this comes through onscreen. In the 10/19/2011 episode (Exuberent Excavators) Adam came flat out and said "We work together well but we don't like each other." In [[http://www.businessinsider.com/mythbusters-co-hosts-no-more-2016-3 a clip]] filmed in 2016, he mentioned that he and Jame "drive each other batty" and that they wouldn't be collaborating on any more projects.

Then, in April 2018, The Science Channel announced that Adam will be returning to Mythbusters to a certain extent- they are going to produce a SpinoffBabies series called ''Series/MythBustersJr'', with Adam as host.

** When testing "bungee jumping for apples," both Adam and Jamie swear liberally when they have to do their first bungee jump, and afterwards.

** This gets repeated a lot when fancy stuff is used in myths, like original production swords and guns. The worst might have been an antique brass diving helmet that was "borrowed" on the reassurance that nothing would happen to it for a pressure test, and it was all but destroyed. It's still in the shop, as Grant would note in a later episode that it was not in returnable condition, so apparently the owner didn't want it back.

* DuctTapeForEverything: Five entire episodes have been devoted to duct tape, in which duct tape has been used to build a cannon, build a boat, build a rope bridge, lift a car, hold a car's frame together, and cover the entirety of an airplane. The third, and probably most extreme, episode has Adam and Jamie surviving on an island, in the style of ''Series/{{Survivor}}'', ''ManVsWild'', or ''Series/{{Survivorman}}'', with (almost) nothing but duct tape to help them. They manage to: build shoes and hats to protect their bodies; build spears and nets to fish and catch wild chickens, respectively; build water sacs to get fresh water from a spring; build shelter made of tarps and hammocks; make a fire bow to build a fire; make a chess set and surfboard to entertain themselves; and, finally, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome build a canoe and provision storage to escape the island! WOW!!!]]\\

* InformedAttribute: [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness The intro for the first few episodes]] boasted that if what the guys needed wasn't found at M5 Industries, it could be found within Adam's "junk collection". Said junk collection was never even shown, let alone used (or at least not mentioned if it was) and that part was dropped from the intro quickly.
