* CompleteMonster: Abe Pike, Gus's father (though perhaps not biologically). When we first meet him, he's been in jail for murder. He then goes on to steal Janet's wedding ring and let Gus take the blame for it as well as kidnap his son (and Sara) more than once. We later find out that he forcibly dragged his wife to an insane asylum and told Gus she was dead. And that's only the stuff we know about... [He's currently being discussed in Complete Monster clean-up thread. He's probably not heinous enough and will be cut.]

* OneSceneWonder: One could argue this for Christopher Lloyd's one-time guest performance as Alastair Dimple in the episode "Another Point of View" in the sense that he won a Primetime Emmy in the category of "Outstanding LEAD Actor in a Drama Series" over such veteran performers like Sam Waterston in IllFlyAway and Scott Bakula in QuantumLeap. Somewhat justified in that the Emmys had omitted the category of "Outstanding Guest Actor" that year.

* [[HeReallyCanAct SheReallyCanAct]]: Patricia Hamilton has always done a great job as Rachel, but her performance in "Home is Where the Heart is", portraying a debilitated Rachel who is unable to speak was outstanding.
