* PoorCommunicationKills: Secret Service agent Simon Donovan goes to buy a candy bar at a convenience store, and notices that something's off: the cashier is standing rigidly still, tries to let him leave without paying, and the register is open with no money in it. Donovan deduces that the other guy standing in the store is robbing it, and quickly puts him in custody. Striding triumphantly back to the cashier, Donovan is then promptly gunned down by the concealed second robber, which the cashier didn't indicate or warn Donovan about because he's a complete moron.

** The reason the awesomely wonderful Sam Seaborn got PutOnABus is because Rob Lowe was leaving to star in his own show. Which sucks, Because Sam rocked.
