* CuttingTheKnot: {{Lampshaded}}. Faced with an [[TheCracker anarchist hacker]] who likes to reference GreekMythology and is about to wreck the financial system from his computer, Carrie asks him if he's heard of the Gordian knot. He answers with the trope namer, and she demonstrates by shooting his laptop.

* BlessedWithSuck: Carrie's PhotographicMemory makes her an excellent investigator but also means that she will never be able to forget any details of the grisly crimes she comes across. She also has issues with personal relationships since she cannot really "forgive and forget" when a relationship goes sour on her.

* PhotographicMemory: The core premise of the show is that Carrie never forgets anything she experiences. A lot of emphasis is placed on the fact that she can go over a memory in her mind multiple times and reexamine it for details she missed originally. The ability is portrayed both as a great gift and a curse since she will always perfectly remember the best moments of her life but will also never forget the grisly details of the crimes she investigates.
** RealitySubtext: Carrie doesn't just have photographic memory, but rather, ''Hyperthymesia'', which is a WordOfGod fact. The difference between the hyperthymesia and photographic memory is that hyperthymesia tends to go "one step further": in addition to perfect recalling of images, senses including scents, sounds, taste, and the like, as well as events and conversations, are recalled with ease, whereas photographic memory is more often than not entirely visual. This is demonstrated in several episodes when Carrie can recall odors and muffled gun shots that allowed her to determine where they were shot from at the crime scene. As of now, a mere ''twenty'' cases of hyperthymesia are confirmed to exist.

Added DiffLines:

* TankTopTomboy: Among Carrie's CowboyCop tendencies is that she almost invariably turns up at crime scenes in a tank top and slacks, weather permitting. By contrast the female detectives in the supporting cast (Nina in season one, Murray post-{{retool}}) wear pantsuits.
