** The "Retribution" story arc involves Dr. Maelstrom attempting to steal the RMSTitanic and later, Noah's Ark. At the end of the first arc, The Chief mentions that RealLife underwater explorer Robert Ballard discovered the ''Titanic'' shortly after Maelstrom's capture. A few years after the episode aired, Ballard would go on [[http://www.nationalgeographic.com/blacksea/search.html several expeditions inspired by the story of Noah's Ark]], and would later be very vocal in his opposition to removing artifacts from the ''Titanic''. If the episode had aired ten years later, it might have seemed as though Maelstrom was intended to literally be Ballard's EvilCounterpart!

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Anytime the Chief lists three things and then says "Oh my!" becomes this when we learn that ''Literature/TheWizardOfOz'' was Carmen's favorite childhood story. Just think about it a little.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: If you can find another show featuring an epic sweeping adventure score merged with a jazzy gospel-esque choir set to a slightly altered piece by Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart as its opening theme, bring it.



* FoeYayShipping: Pairing Carmen with either Ivy or Zack isn't uncommon. It helps that Carmen is rather popular and that Carmen isn't too malicious besides her thievery (not to mention very protective of her rivals).

* FridgeBrilliance: When Lee Jordan is introduced, he is shown piloting a red plane. Red is normally heroic, but who is most commonly associated with the color red in this series? And who does he join sides with (and eventually backstab)?

** At the end of The Tigress, Ivy reveals the whole thing was a set up to make Carmen jealous and cause her to let down her guard, so they can catch her. When they do, Zack explains how he made super powered rocket boots enabling Ivy to fly. RIGHT IN FRONT OF CARMEN WHO WAS HANDCUFFED NEXT TO HIM, enabling her to take the boots and fly right out of the police van! Did he suddenly forget who he was talking to?! Although perhaps this was the result of [[JustifiedTrope his hormones doing horrible things to his brain]].

* FandomSpecificPlot: Carmen dressing up as a "family friend" to get Zack out of situations his young age makes him more vulnerable to than Ivy, such as bullies at a training camp or the DepartmentOfChildDisservices taking him away because his job at ACME is too dangerous, pops up more than you might think.



* TechnologyMarchesOn and/or MagicFloppyDisk: The Acme Detective Agency's entire database, Chief AI and all, can supposedly fit on a single standard CD. Granted, it was one of Carmen's own pieces of tech that pulled it off but still, she effectively stole Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} and put it on a ''CD''.
