* BaseBreaker: Evan. Some fans find him completely annoying, others think that he's the best part of the show.

* StopHelpingMe: Evan seems hellbent on getting [=HankMed=] more customers, over the insistence of Hank himself. When he buckles down to it, he ''is'' a good CFO.

* FoeYay: Hank and Emily. It gets more interesting when [[spoiler:they act on their attraction... in the ''second'' episode after her appearance. It doesn't look like they'll end the enemy stage just yet, either.]]

** "You Give Love a Bad Name" begins with [[spoiler: Hank opening the chest of a guy who has just been shot and instructing someone else to hold the ribs apart. This troper was very quick to look away.]]

** Though as of late, he's become a much better character since he started dating Paige, to the point where when Hank was a jerk to him, Evan gave him a speech that was pretty close to a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech reason you suck speech.]] Those who couldn't stand Evan before probably like him now. RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap indeed.

* HoYay: Boris and Hank (Could be FoeYay depending on how the [[WMG/RoyalPains story]] is going), Evan and Boris (though more on Evan's part), [[LesYay Divya and Jill]], [[IncestSubtext Hank and Evan]]

* PuritySue: Hank. Seriously, does he get paid extra for being a goody-two-shoes?



* WTHCostumingDepartment: Season 7 opens with Paige and Evan having a bit of a PregnancyScare, as while they're married they're hardly ready to be parents. Towards the end of the episode, she shows up to tell him she's not pregnant after all; she got her period and was just late (even though she claims she's never late). The thing is, she's wearing '''white pants'''. Absolutely ''no'' woman on the first day of her period would be wearing white pants: if she was wearing them before she suddenly started, she'd change because they're now bloody; if she wasn't, there's no way she'd look in her closet for a new pair and go, "Hmm, I think I'll choose the one article of clothing most likely to advertise if my sanitary napkin springs a leak!"

** Molly, the bratty teenage daughter of Hank's new favored patient in season five, was also pretty unpopular with fans. It didn't help that she seemingly dedicated her life to making Hank's job harder.



* TearJerker: Evan watching helplessly as Hank tries to revive their father during his heart attack. Capped off when they finally get him to the emergency room and the surgeon - after asking what happened and if Hank is the primary physician to which Hank responds he's the son - can only reply with a shocked and sympathetic: "Jesus..."

** The revelation that Milos, Boris' seemingly diabolical cousin is in fact [[spoiler:severely mentally ill, to the point where he believes that Boris is hoarding a cure for his illness. It's especially sad watching Boris try to reason with him]].

* DesignatedLoveInterest: Jill Casey



* {{Flanderization}}: Evan turns into more of an idiotic jerk as the series goes on. This is actually a plot point, as he mentions in 1x11 that the Hamptons are "changing" him.
** Jill seems to have become less and less competent a doctor compared to Hank and Divya in the second season.
** That might be because Jill isn't a doctor.



* FollowTheLeader - Like ''BurnNotice'', this show features a man who loses his job through no fault of his own and is forced to get by in an unfamiliar situation. [[LampshadeHanging That's a quote from the commercial where Michael writes to Hank]], and sends him a few things he might need; sunglasses, some sunscreen, [[RuleOfThree a block]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick of C4]]...
** Also: a doctor who chooses to save the life of a regular kid over an influential person which causes him to lose his job and his fiancée? [[{{Anime/Monster}} Somebody better keep an eye on the kid...]]



* TakeThat: In the pilot when the on-call doctor tries to treat a girl at the party and automatically assumes it's drugs. Hank points out some important symptoms that he missed because of his assumption. A cynical doctor who assumes the worst in everyone? Hmmm....
This list shows the last 10 events of 30. Show all.
