* ItTastesLikeFeet: The Nelson & Murdock trio are relaxing after work with a game of billiards at Josie's. Karen goes to grab a pitcher of water:
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' You can't drink the water here. Josie's pipes have issues.
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' Rust, mold.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' I think I can actually see the bacteria floating in there.
-->'''Karen Page:''' ''[laughs]'' Oh, ew, ew!
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' See, that-that's why we, uh, keep our cocktails neat.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' Pretend you're abroad. On vacation someplace exotic, but no mojitos. Josie just throws mint in the beer.
-->'''Matt Murdock:''' ''[laughs]'' Right.

* HollywoodLaw: We see Matt and Foggy arrive at the office and Karen fills them in on the clients in their waiting room. While the scene is funny and is meant to convey the eccentricity of Nelson & Murdock's clientele, Karen is publicly disclosing each individualís legal problem in earshot of the other clients, [[http://thelegalgeeks.com/2016/03/20/nelson-murdock-worse-client-consultations-ever/ potentially a violation of a New York attorneyís duty of confidentiality to a prospective client]].


* GeniusBonus: Karen reports that a potential client's dog defiled (er, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments "humped repeatedly until completion"]]) his neighbor's statue of St. Francis. Among Catholics, St. Francis of Assisi is well known as the patron saint of animals.


* BlackComedyRape: One of Nelson & Murdock's clients is a guy whose dog defiled (or as Karen clarifies, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "humped repeatedly until completion"]]) his neighbor's statue of St. Francis.

** The scene of Matt and Foggy walking to work, and Matt asking pressing questions about Foggy's dating life, seems like a reversal of their first scene in the season 1 premiere, where Foggy is introduced heckling Matt about his presumed dating life over the phone to wake him up for their appointment with the realtor.

** The biker gang mentioned by the Irish and visited by Foggy (''The Dogs of Hell'') are a New York City chapter to the same gang that [[Recap/AgentsofSHIELDS1E15YesMen Lorelei took over]] in ''[[Series/AgentsofSHIELD Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]]''. The font branding is identical and the logo is very similar. As befits the grittier style of ''Daredevil'', they are not PlayedForLaughs as in ''Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.''

* LooseLips: Matt's super-hearing allows him to pick up on some of the police detectives discussing the injuries on some of the Kitchen Irish victims. When he speaks his questions out loud, Brett thinks someone inside is leaking info and tells a passing uniform "Hey! You keep it down in there or someone's getting written up."

** The massacre of [[TheIrishMob the Kitchen Irish]] is undoubtedly based on a Civil War tie-in, wherein the attacker massacres a bar full of D-List supervillains right when one is announcing that they will return to their old glory.

** The biker tells Foggy "You got guts, Harvard. I'll give you that." Foggy corrects him "Columbia, actually." This is an oblique reference to a comics story wherein Foggy tries to infiltrate the Mob to help a client and winds up getting the nickname "Guts" Nelson thanks to Daredevil's covert assistance. Also from the comics, Matt and Foggy transferred from Columbia Law School to Harvard Law School before opening their practice.
