* RealAfterAll: One episode has an elderly man asking Christian and Sean to remove a metal device from his body. He says it's evidence he was abducted by aliens working for the government and wants to hand it to the media. Before they do the surgery, an attractive blonde woman comes by, telling them the man is her father and mentally ill and the device is just a surgical implant. The man protests that the woman isn't his daughter ("My daughter is dark haired and fat!") and yells that he's being silenced as men in orderly clothes take him away. At the end of the night, Sean and Christian are talking on how sad it is to see someone lose thier mind...at which point, an overweight brunette woman comes to the office, asking about her father and his surgery.

* {{Anorgasmia}}: [=McNamara=] & Troy once had a female patient who was unable to experience orgasms as a result of genital mutilation. They performed a pro bono surgery that restored the woman's clitoris, but it took Liz's verbal help to make the patient orgasm succesfully.

* CelebrityResemblance: One character in the first season had a massive amount of surgeries to make him look like Micheal Jackson


Added DiffLines:

* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: This is why Sean didnít kill Escobar


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: As much of a {{Jerkass}} that Christian is a lot of times he does have a point.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: Julia always blames everyone else for her problems mostly her husband.
** When aging widowed socialite Mrs Grubman threatens McNamara/Troy with a malpractice suit Sean blamed Liz when he was the one who didnít do the follow up procedure.
** Gina is a sex attic while Christen going to the meeting and treating her like a one nightstand was incredibly sleazy. She refuses to take responsibly for falling off the wagon and considering the fact that she still goes to her sexaholics meetings come across as a little hypocritical especially given the fact that she refuses to leave him alone.
*** Taking even further after the revelation that she had been sleeping with other men around the same time.


Added DiffLines:

* ObliviousGuiltSlinging: When reading about the hit and run victim in the paper Julia and Sean mentioned who would do something so horrible not knowing that it was Matt.


Added DiffLines:

* PassiveAggressiveKombat: Julia it is pretty much her defining characteristic.


Added DiffLines:

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: The priest who tricked the two into removing incriminating evidence given his history Cristen was vehemently against keeping it a secret.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainsNeverLie: This was Escobar answer when Sean was skeptical about changing his face.


Added DiffLines:

* YouWouldntShootMe: Escobar was well aware that he was pushing Sean after he attacked him when he threatened his family. He was also aware of this trope which is why he let him into his house with a gun without his bodyguard present.

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Arguably, Christian Troy. Pathologically oversexed, determinedly shallow, given to anything from sexual harassment on up to psychological warfare as seduction tactics (see, for example, the scene in the "pilot" where he strips his latest conquest naked, stands her in front of a full-length mirror, and uses a red lipstick to indicate flaws he finds surgically improvable), and an overwhelming fan favorite. Possibly because of the hotness, possibly because of the tragic backstory, possibly because he's the only major character who isn't an insufferable hypocrite.

* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Christian. It really ups his {{Jerkass}} credentials but, makes any scene he's in [[LaughablyEvil funny]].

* BadBadActing : Christian delivers his lines in a stilted, horrible way. By contrast, ''Creator/BradleyCooper'' seems to love [[LargeHam chewing up the scenery]], whether in or out of the ShowWithinAShow.
