* CartwrightCurse: All four Barkley children, despite being rich and attractive, can't make it out of an episode with a love interest still alive. This might even include their mother, who from the start of the series was a widoe.

* PrecisionFStrike: In the pilot, Heath comes onto the Barkley estate and ends up fighting with Jarrod, and Jarrod wants to know who he is and why he's there, so Heath uses the only profanity used in the entire series when he states, matter-of-factly, "Your father's bastard son."

(The comic book of the series completely ignores how Heath ended up with the family.)

* BadassBookworm - Jarrod is a lawyer who doesn't ordinarily wear a gun, and he apparently has large amounts of legal code memorized to quote off the top of his head at the drop of a hat. He can also mend fences, throw a solid punch, and hit precisely what he shoots at when he does carry a weapon.

* BadassFamily - The Barkleys. Victoria and Audra may float around in hoop skirts, but they're quite capable of putting on tight pants and shooting straight when the situation requires it.
