** Surprisingly averted in another episode, when the angels are sent to counsel an estranged couple. It turns out that 20-something years earlier, the couple decided to have an abortion as they didn't feel they were ready for children. They were never able to conceive again and have spent the subsequent time regretting their decision and feeling that they were being punished for it. The angels assure them that that isn't the case.

* HeelFaceTurn: Some of the angels' assignments had one of these near the end of their episodes. It's also worth noting that [[spoiler: Kathleen, an angel who used to be Monica's friend and then crossed to the dark side, had one after being denied a promotion to demonic "caseworker."]]

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Late in the series run, Gloria somehow got her hands on Tess' car. The results were...well, this. Monica has had a couple moments as well.

* One of the most epic examples of HeroicBSOD involved Kelly, an assignment who was Monica's traffic school teacher (she took her foot off the brake and ran a stop sign, nearly killing said assignment). Kelly had a HeroicBSOD after her son Jesse [[spoiler: was killed in a drive-by]] but had been bitter before then. Viewers discover it's because Kelly is [[spoiler: a deep-cover angel who was sent to help Jesse when the boy was two, then stayed to raise him after his mother was killed.]] Monica and Tess' real assignment is to [[spoiler: bring Kelly back to Heaven.]]

* IdentityAmnesia: Monica lost her memory in one episode. Tess' [[spoiler: Alzheimer's]] may or may not be this, since we're not sure if she ever lost touch with her angelic identity.

* 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!"

* ClipShow: Several. The first is aptly titled "Clipped Wings" -- and it's a DoubleMeaningTitle too, as a dark angel manages to get Monica's angel status temporarily revoked by causing her to miss a performance review. "The Medium and the Message" had Monica trying to pitch a show about angels, with the clips illustrating her concept for it. Another show featured characters reminicing about Tess, and another was a retrospective with the performers out of character.

* 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.]]
