** For extra BlackComedy, the Santa's rambles paint him as a suicidal wreck who is completely devastated over his dead wife. Then it turns out that she's fine and the prescription medication that he had handled ominously were for her bad back -- "sometimes the pain is too much", indeed.


* In "404 Not Found", Darlene spends nearly the whole episode driving an utterly drunk Santa home because he can't find his keys and he promised to let her borrow his car for an errand afterwards. When they finally arrive, they discover his car's still in the driveway at his house; he never had his keys because he caught a ride to work, and they've been driving someone else's car the whole time.

** During that same episode, Tyrell and Elliot take a 'shortcut' through the woods to find the Dark Army van that disappeared on them. After some tense scenes involving animal noises and life musings, they finally reach a road and breathe in relief, only to turn around and find they're exactly where the shortcut started.

* When Elliot reaches Garcen's hotel, he is treated to the sight of a man yelling a foreign language into his phone and the receptionist eating a bowl of cereal like a gourmet meal. Later, when Elliot is dragged out of the hotel the same receptionist plays [[SoundtrackDissonance Don't Worry (Be Happy)]] over the loudspeakers to mask the noise.

* 'da3m0ns' has Elliot going through multiple hallucinations, [[MindScrew most of which are bizarre and confusing.]] One of them, however, has Elliot going into his apartment and sitting down next to Qwerty, his fish. Qwerty then begins talking to him (in KeithDavid's voice, no less) about how stagnant his life is. It ends with this exchange:

* Elliot and Mohammed's back and forth dialogue reads like two kid brothers who slowly begin to annoy each other, with Mohammed asking Elliot an exponential amount of questions in an attempt to get him to open up, and Elliot brushing off the boy's icebreakers in his usual laconic manner. When Elliot and Mohammed depart, it is revealed that Mohammed, who previously said he was locked out of his house while his parents are away, had the keys all along.

* While "Frederick+Tanya" is easily one of the [[GutPunch saddest and bleakest]] episodes, Leon still shines through with some golden moments.
** First, in a great example of [[BlackComedy black comedy]], he rants to a bound Trenton and Mobley how {{Series/Frasier}} completely turned him off of television, all while [[spoiler: sitting in front of the dead housemate he had just brutally murdered]]. After that he continues his rant talking about an under-appreciated gem of a series that helped him recover from his distaste in television. The show in question? [[spoiler: {{Series/Knightrider}}]].
** Shortly after as [[spoiler: Trenton and Mobley try to escape Leon by stealing his car as he's distracted]] he turns around and looks ''mildly annoyed''. Topping it off is the two [[spoiler: plowing into a rock and disabling the car due to their panic and not knowing how to drive]] and Leon's [[DeadpanSnarker reaction to it]].
