* {{Anvilicious}}: The beginning of 9x09 "Blood Sugar". Its images of workers hacking away at sugarcane, the lyrics of the background music, and even the [[http://web.utk.edu/~gerard/romanticpolitics/bloodsugar.html title]], appear to be trying to lay a guilt trip on the audience for...''using sugar''. No accident that the presumably rich people in the gazebo are white while almost everyone else is Hispanic, either. Would you like a little implied racism/reverse racism with your anvil?
** TruthInTelevision, the ''vast'' majority of sugarcane workers are hispanic, and all of them are poor.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Technically there's one every episode if you ''really'' like Music/TheWho's song. ''20 to 1'', a program where celebrities discuss the top twenty...anything, in this case best TV themes, addressed this. ''Who Are You'' brought the band back into the spotlight, by the time New York came around they were set for life and '''''YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!''''' makes you wanna go...well, '''''[[BigYes YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]]'''''
** The utterly nonchalant music playing during the climax of "All In" that captures both the utter confusion of the bad guy as to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcgXrbdkPxc what the hell]] just happened and how badly the team outclasses him in the end.



* BaseBreaker: Horatio

* BaseBreaker: HoratioHoratio.



** An example: Once the team determines that the crooks are basing their crimes on the plot of a video game, they obviously need to determine what happens next in the game's plot. They go to the developer (conveniently located in Miami) who refuses to tell them the game's plot, saying that they will "just have to play the game." Not only are his reasoning that an already-released game's plot is some sort of trade secret patently ridiculous, the writers have clearly never set foot in a video game store, where there is generally an entire wall of [[StrategyGuide Official Strategy Guides]] proclaiming "All Secrets Revealed!" on the front covers. And apparently CSI Miami-verse has no such thing as online walkthroughs, story guides, or {{Wikipedia}}.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Horatio Caine + child(ren) results in this trope.
** His dealing with the mentally disabled Eugene in "Witness To Murder" is this.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The cast does their best [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul8gZIGZbdc Horatio imitations]].
** David Caruso was also pretty good at taking the mickey out of himself. In this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXrUNXtPboA video]], he makes jokes about his young daughter not liking the Halloween costume he picked out and the immortal line (while he's having his hair brushed) "In the second half of the day, we turn the wig around." Caruso also loved [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJSqkwyL1Zo Jim Carrey's imitation]] of Horatio.

** Well, she ''was'' a [[Film/{{Showgirls}} Showgirl]]...
* GodModeSue: Horatio. Seriously. Name me ANYTHING he's not capable of doing. He's a bomb expert, a flawless marksman, great driver, and seems to have a wider scientific knowledge than Grissom did.
** Delko still dives better, Tom knows more about cadavers, and Calleigh's better with firearms. Other than that...
** Horatio is a proven moron around the women he likes. He mumbles and says "uhm" a lot. He's a little too old for that to be completely endearing.

** Season six finale: Horatio goes to an airport to send his ex-wife and son into hiding, gets shot in the stomach, appears to die on the shiniest tarmac in history. Wolfe gets text: "It's done". Might've been marginally believable if it weren't the [[PrecisionFStrike motherfucking]] [[GodModeSue God Mode]] [[BlackHoleSue Sue of the show]]! And there's the whole thing about the similar moment on CSI:Vegas that was forced to stick by extenuating circumstances. Sure enough, season seven reveals Horatio to have faked his death, Wolfe to be in on it, and it all to be part of a gambit to lure Ron Saris out of hiding...in the space between the first and second commercial breaks.

* MartyStu: Horatio Caine... but in a [[TropesAreNotBad good way]], as [[BlackHoleSue you can't imagine the show without him]].
** If you watch the show you have to believe he's the most famous man in Miami, or, like that famous [[EpilepticTrees conspiracy theory]] about Creator/AngelaLansbury, is ''[[TheManBehindTheCurtain behind everything]]'', thus making him always the first man on the scene.

* TheWoobie: Even fans that don't like him admit that when Ryan puts on the [[PuppyDogEyes Puppy Dog Eyes]] they have the intense urge to just hug him and reassure him everything will be okay. ''Especially'' given how the show liked to beat him up - throwing him into a hurricane and getting him shot with a nail gun, among other instances.

* AcceptableTargets: In one episode, gamers. An entire episode was dedicated to trying to catch a group of bank robbers/murderers who took the GTA expy they were playing far too seriously, but the episode was written like something Jack Thompson would come up with and failed to so much as whisper the fact that 99% of gamers know the difference between fantasy and reality.

* UnfortunateImplications: Speed is incredibly antagonistic to a woman who was harassed by a guy at an outside movie theatre, and [[spoiler:wound up accidentally shooting him - although neither Calleigh nor Speed believes it was an accident, as she lied to them about her alibi]]), saying that she should "have just tried rejecting him". Thing is - she did. He continued to harass her (calling her a "bitch" and saying she must think very highly of herself), getting them both thrown out of the movie, and he continued to threaten and insult her - including using her full name to try to intimidate her - leaning into her car and then keying it before she drove away. By that point, one is quite ready to [[spoiler:shoot the creep themselves]], ''especially'' if they've ever been hit on by a guy who wouldn't take no as an answer. It gets extra aggravating with the wave of men killing women because they turned someone down or wouldn't have sex, and the fact that some pick-up artists use "negging" or negative comments to try to get a woman to date them.
-->'''Speed:''' For the record, that guy was just trying to talk to you. He was just trying to find an opening.
-->'''Melanie:''' ...he ''insulted'' me.
-->'''Speed:''' Maybe it was to get your attention. Next time, why don't you try rejection because it's a lot less messy, and you know what? Guys are used to it.
** He was also nasty to a woman who objected to having her cell phone taken away for three hours, when she asked what she was supposed to do without it, he smirked at her and suggested she "Stop talking?"
