* ConstantlyCurious: Lampshaded in the episode "Inner Child". Raines asks Emily "Why are you so annoying?" after she keeps bombarding him with intrusive questions, to which she answers "Maybe it's easier if I'm annoying... You know, that I'm dead for no good reason. That I was murdered..."

* InherentlyFunnyWord: In-universe example. Raines considers "Titicaca" this, which is probably the reason he remembers that one sentence of Spanish he speaks - something about the Lake Titicaca.

* AssholeVictim: A very real concern for the title character; as he hallucinates the victims, cases tend to be more strenuous for him if he doesn't like the person who died.
