* BigRottenApple: Krieger, Cheryl, Pam, and Cyril get stranded when Krieger's van breaks down in Brownsville. Not only is this an actual neighborhood in Brooklyn, but the show's depiction of it is actually not that far off.

* BigRottenApple: Krieger, Cheryl, Pam, and Cyril get stranded when Krieger's van breaks down in Brownsville. Not only is this an actual neighborhood in Brooklyn, but throughout much of the 20th century it was one of the most infamous neighborhoods in New York for poverty, crime, and gang related activity. (Including being the birthplace for MurderInc) In the 21st century it has been one of the few neighborhoods in New York where gentrification has had little to no effect, meaning the show's depiction of it is actually not that far off.much of an exaggeration.
* CarChase: A large chunk of the episode consists of Archer, Lana, and Lana's father Lemuel in a car chase after the men who stole Lemuel's research.



* ShownTheirWork: Cheryl's comment about the irony of the neighborhood being called Brownsville when it was originally a Jewish neighborhood is entirely accurate.



* TelevisionGeography: In what seems like it has to be a ShoutOut to Film/TheGraduate's very similar goof with SF bridges, Archer and Lana arrive at SFO only take the Golden Gate Bridge to get to Berkeley as opposed to the much shorter route over the Bay Bridge, they even mess up the establishing shot by looking South, showing the bridge and SF instead of North toward the Marin side. The Later car chase takes them from Berkeley back into SF, again taking the Golden Gate Bridge, and even the episode's brief flashback features the Kanes illogically taking the Golden Gate Bridge into the City.

* ThreeWaySex: Archer comes to believe that Lana's parents are propositioning him for this and (fairly reluctantly) begins to go along with it. He's wrong, and it causes a lot of mortification and embarrassment.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Slater is sincerely apologetic over having broken in and opened fire on the Kanes' house when there was a baby in the house, and considering the money was transferred before Slater even made the offer, he clearly intended to compensate Lemuel for the loss of his research.

* WatchThePaintJob: Toyed with. Archer is heartbroken that the bad guys are shooting at the Mustang he's driving, although it's Lemuel's car, not his. Lemuel doesn't seem too irritated over the damage to the car, surprisingly.
