* ViewersAreMorons: Okay true, there are cases where really sophisticated math are used in the show. "Self Organized Criticality" and "Cake Cutting Algorithm" are some major examples and most people would require analogies to understand them. But the analogies don't stop there. The producers pretty much use analogies for everything that would even be common sense. Even a simple task such as trial and error.

* BavarianFireDrill: The fifth season's "Jack of All Trades" features a criminal who is basically a master of this. He can fake his way into any job simply by turning up the charm. When he's finally captured for the first time, he escapes from jail by pretending to be an attorney.

* ContentWarnings: Season 5 Episode 8 Thirty-Six hours deals with a train derailment. It was written and filmed before the tragic Metrolink crash in Chatsworth, CA but was shown after. David Krumholtz gives a content warning that establishes the episode was written and filmed before the tragedy and gives a warning so those who might find the story disturbing can make an informed decision.

* RealityEnsues: In the ''pilot episode'', no less: Charlie uses his mathematical skills to determine the general area where a serial killer lives based on the locations of his murders, but the FBI fails to find a single viable suspect in the target area. When the FBI finally catches the guy, it turns out that he ''used to'' live in the target area, but had moved away prior to the beginning of the episode. No matter how good your math is, there will always be some variables that you can't account for.

* RunningGag: A popular one in the later seasons is that whenever the FBI field agents go to a potential suspect, and the suspects run, the agents tend to treat it more as an annoyance than an actual worry that the suspect might get away.
** Colby has cottoned to this to the point of GenreSavvy.
*** Oh wow. A literal example of a [[IncrediblyLamePun Running Gag]].

** There's also one that surfaces occasionally in Charlie's tendency to mistreat whatever random food happens to be lying around to demonstrate a math concept.

** Another example would be the villain of the Season 5 finale: a very intelligent cult leader who has a bit of a god complex and whose followers are only women. He's played by [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined James Callis]]. There are few differences.

* Letters2Numbers: Or, if you prefer, [[Letters2Numbers L3tt3rs To Numb3rs]].

* Letters2Numbers: Or, if you prefer, [[Letters2Numbers L3tt3rs To Numb3rs]]. The show also did this in its opening sequence. The names of the actors would slide across the screen to the right as numbers, resolving then into the letters of the actors' names, except for a couple of them, which would remain briefly before then switching over to the letters.
