Adult Fear: The plot of of the episode revolves around Michelangelo going onto a social networking site to try and prove that the Turtles can befriend humans, only for the person he meets to secretly be one of the Shredder's lieutenants.
False Friend: When Michelangelo attempts to befriend Bradford, he goes with it and uses the connection to attempt to learn more about the turtles.
Fighting Fingerprint: Justified. A Kata is a training method, with numerous different schools using varied ones. And Bradford used the Master level kata of the Shredder...which Shredder likely developed SPECIFCALLY to deal with Hamato Yoshi, alias Splinter.

And then the cat, who'd been cute and friendly moments ago, attacks Mikey.
April: Mikey, you already have a human friend; me!
Mikey: April, you don't count. We saved your life! You have to like us!
It's All My Fault: Mikey says after he realizes Bradford, his new friend, actually works for the Shredder and that he's accidentally revealed the existence of himself and his family to their worst enemy.
Jerkass Has a Point: While not so much meant to be Jerkass-ish, Splinter gets a little harsh and physical on Leo when Leo tries to justify what's fair and what isn't in battle.
Splinter: (Tackles Leo to the ground and is pinning him with his staff) Was that fair?
