* BewareTheSillyOnes: Mozzie [[spoiler: sells the Degas painting to finance a bounty on Matthew Keller for murdering a fence he was friendly with, and to stop Keller from coming after Neil and their treasure.]] It isn't just the act itself; weird, quirky little Mozzie is chillingly calm as he [[spoiler: arranges with an intermediary for a CarnivalOfKillers to go after Keller.]] Turns out that if you ''really'' anger Mozzie, he's more dangerous than Neil...

Added DiffLines:

* CopsNeedTheVigilante: The series plays with this, as the FBI ''know'' the crook-of-the-week is operating out of a warehouse, but they do not have a warrant. So convicted felon Neil Caffrey, who works as a consultant, simply runs to the warehouse - where the FBI then tracks him using his monitoring bracelet, and can use probable cause to go inside. This follows under the heading of "an agent of the police can't do what the cops can't do".

* FramingTheGuiltyParty: "Scott Free" has a particularly notable example in that the guilty party is actually guilty of the exact crime he's being framed for. There's this kid, right? Stealing from AssholeVictims JustLikeRobinHood. Only his latest heist was from ''another'' thief who's fully capable of killing "Robin Hoody" for the hell of it. Neal's solution? ''Put the diamonds back and call Peter.''

** Except the first time...face it. Neals knows Peter WILL catch him, so he just factors that inevitability into his plans now.
* AnachronisticClue: Peter and Neil will often look for such clues to determine if an item is a forgery. It is usually averted with forgeries Neil makes since he does detailed research on the original and makes sure not to use anachronistic materials. This is invoked in one instance when Neil has to make a forgery that is good enough to fool most art experts but has just enough anachronisms that a detailed examination in an FBI lab would reveal that it is a fake.
