* WolfInSheepsClothing: Averted in one episode. A man with hemorrhoids and heart problems was coming in with frequent bouts of bradycardia while his wife was with him. His wife is unbelievably nice to both her husband and the staff. The workers start thinking she might be this trope and is poisoning her husband. They were half right. During one his bradycardia bouts, one doctor asks the wife what happened and she explains that she was just giving him his hemorrhoid cream. The doctor looks at the bottle and discovers that he the bottle was his heart medication, nitroglycerine, which causes expands blood vessels and causes blood to gather in the heart. So while the wife was the one making her husband sick, it was by accident and her kindness was genuine all along.

* ObstructiveAuthorityFigure: Subverted with the cops. Often times they tend to get in the way in the doctor's work, but it's justified for the most part as they don't intend to get in the way, they're just trying to their jobs as well.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted ''hard'' in some cases. One woman was brutally mauled by a mountain lion. Doctors managed to reconstruct her face, but she cried when they took the bandages off and she saw how bad she looked. They then showed her photos of how she looked before they stitched her up, and she realized that she was lucky to even have a face.

* Another fairly graphic example happened in the episode "Drama Mama." The featured doctor was dealing with a combative patient who appeared to have a tension pneumothorax (in layman's terms, a collapsed lung). In actuality he didn't, and when the doctor poked his chest to relieve the pressure, a quite literal fountain of blood squirted ''everywhere.''

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Dr. Jessica Mason, from "Medieval Mayhem," has this problem. She's a full-fledged doctor in her 20s-30s, but most people assume she is much younger. She has actually been accused of being 12-13, and many patients assume she is either a nurse or intern. Dr. Mason can in fact be a DeadpanSnarker to those who make comments.
