* AdultFear: Quite a bit. The finale comes to mind, wherein [[spoiler: a K-12 school is blown up, killing every child inside.]] Other episodes involve dying children, lost children, or abused children, among other examples.

Added DiffLines:

**Tends to occur in a lot of episodes that feature seriously ill protagonists. See "The Violin Lesson," "Into the Light," and various other examples. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in these two instances because one protagonist had cystic fibrosis and the other had AIDS, which had led to respiratory and other infections.

Added DiffLines:

* RapeAsDrama: One episode has Monica trying to help a couple deal with the wife's rape that occurred six years prior. They apparently never dealt with it to begin with and now that her rapist has been paroled, the unresolved issues are even more painful. Andrew is left to counsel the rapist himself as well as protect him from the vengeful husband.

Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: In 99% of cases, the angels don't have last names. This can cause some issues, like when they're dialing Information to find someone as in "Indigo Angel" from Season 2 (the person on the phone wants Andrew's last name and uh, he doesn't have one). This also caused trouble for Rafael when he had an assignment as a soldier, as soldiers are generally addressed by last names.
**Averted in Season 2's "Trust," where Monica worked as a cop and took on the last name O'Dooley.
**Also averted during "Reasonable Doubt." Monica was on jury duty and was asked to give a last name. When she said, "Well, I..." the officiating clerk interpreted it as "Welleye," kind of like the fish.
**Fallen angel Kathleen [[spoiler: who later turned back to the side of God]] gave her last name as Luna, or "Moon," during an episode where she appeared as a fortune teller.


Added DiffLines:

* TwoFirstNames: Occurs with Darnell Thomas of Season 4's "Nothing But Net" and may occur in other episodes as well.

Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: Something humans and angels must learn. Monica undergoes a notable example in Season 3's "Random Acts," since the [[spoiler: attack on and near death of her assignment]] almost causes her first HeroicBSOD.
* AsLongAsThereIsOneMan: Some assignments involve the angels explaining this to a human and helping him or her confront evil. A notable example is Season 4's "Breaking Bread," wherein Matt Coletti is chosen as a prophet and [[spoiler: defeats the devil, with the angels' help, when he uses a hate group to try to divide Matt's town.]]

* ShoutOut: Blink and you'll miss it: In "Sandcastles," Tess removes guest angel Rafael's beard, and he complains nobody takes him seriously because he looks 12. Tess' response is, "I don't like angels with dirty faces!"

Added DiffLines:

* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: Monica experiences this in Season 3's "Sins of the Father" with assignment Luther Dixon. Her assignment is to listen and try to understand his language. Being a fairly new caseworker, Monica takes this literally at first. She gets tripped up on some of Luther's slang, such as "jacking" for "stealing" and "chips" for "money." She later uses this to drive home the point that whether Luther bothers to "come up with some fancy name" for God, to make Him fit into his gang culture, God is the only one who will consistently be there for him.
**Actually subverted with Monica herself. Monica was "born" in Ireland, yet spends 90% of her assignments in the U.S. Yet she rarely if ever uses common Irish slang or has to substitute American terms for Irish ones. She may use words like "meself" now and again, but it's very rare.
