* TheCastShowoff: Kevin Weisman is a talented drummer, and demonstrated it in Marshall's proposal to Carrie.
* TheDanza: Michael Vaughn (played by Michael Vartan) and Rachel Gibson (Creator/RachelNichols).
* DirectedByCastMember: Jennifer Garner called the shots on "In Dreams...".
* FakeNationality: A lot of it.
** FakeBrit: David Anders is American. You'd never know it from his performance.
** FakeRussian:
*** None of the actresses playing the Derevko sisters are Russian: Lena Olin (Irina) is Swedish, Isabella Rossellini (Katya) is Italian, and Sonia Braga (Elena) is Brazilian.
*** Julian is one as well, as we find out in Season 3. Sark isn't his real name, and his father is a descendent of the Romanov family.
** Gina Torres, who plays half-Russian, half-Spanish Anna Espinosa, is neither Russian nor Spanish. She's half Cuban, half African-American.
* StarMakingRole: For Creator/JenniferGarner.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Roger Moore's role as Edward Poole was originally planned to be recurring, but Moore and the producers couldn't agree on his salary so the character was killed offscreen a couple episodes after his first appearance.
