* Jane's AppleOfDiscord moment in “Wedding in Red.” He does a couple cold reads on the wedding party and a minute later the one bridesmaid (the grooms sister) is complaining about how the bride is such a GrammarNazi with her brother. The bride calls her an UngratefulBastard since she paid for the bridesmaid dress then the ‘’other’’ bridesmaid (a {{Goth}} who asked the team to let her look at the body) asks why the bride didn’t pay for ‘’her’’ dress then things spiral downhill from there (including yet another GrammarNazi moment the grooms sister is quick to point out) before the wedding is called off. ‘’Then’’ Jane realized that may have been a bit premature because there best chance of catching the killer is if the wedding continues.

* "Il Tavolo Bianco" starts rather seriously, with Jane being arrested for murder and Lisbon and Fischer being subpoenaed into potentially testifying against him. After the opening sequence, it's revealed that it's actually a sting operation and Lisbon and Fischer were kept in the dark about it in order to maintain authenticity. After Abbot fills them in with the details, Jane's immediate priority seems to be what they said about him.
-->'''Jane''': You guys didn't answer my question. Did anyone narc on me?


* In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOM747YQ3uw opening scene]] of "Red Bulls", Bosco's team prepares to make a hard entry into a house, and storms in to find... Lisbon's team. Which, thanks to the fact that it's dark, results in a few seconds of everyone screaming at each other to put their hands up until they finally get enough of a look at each other (by flashlight) to realize what's actually going on. Jane's reaction really clinches it.

* In "Pink Chanel Suit," Jane tries to hurry through a checkpoint and a security guard places his hand on him to hold him back, a known trigger for Jane (see above.) He asks to see Jane's badge, and Jane shows it, and in response, asks to see his badge, which he tries to make a big deal of. He tells Jane that everyone has to go through the checkpoint, and Jane asks if that includes him. He replies that it does, and so Jane tells him "after you." So he goes through the checkpoint, but thanks to Jane's sleight-of-hand meddling, sets off the metal detector every time. Finally, Jane goes through and doesn't set it off, says it seems to be working, and leaves the frustrated guard to go through again and set it off.
