Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: Another thing that gets Pierce's attention is how Reese slugged his way past Pierce's BadassIsraeli bodyguard.


* BowtiesAreCool: Finch snarkly asks Reese if he knows how to tie one.



* {{Fanservice}}: A subtle example, but throughout the course of the episode Reese wears his motorcycle gear, a tux (with a [[BowtiesAreCool bowtie]]!), ''and'' his BadassLongcoat, all of which are ''extremely'' well liked by the fandom. Having all three in the same episode was pure win.

* NotSoDifferent: A cunning billionaire with infinite resources, with just enough curiosity to be dangerous.

* BadAss: When 'Riley' insists on an appointment, Pierce tells Security to throw him out. Cue Pierce's Mossad-trained bodyguard being thrown through the door.


* WorstAid: Reese's first aid technique of using a faucet hose to intubate Logan Pierce, who at the time is having an allergic reaction that's causing his airway to swell. Don't try this at home, kids.

* YouNeedToGetLaid: Bear, as it turns out. Finch sets up a date in the park with a nice bitch.


** Pierce thanks Team Machine for saving his life four times over the course of a single day by giving them an incredibly expensive watch that's accurate to the nanosecond. Finch takes one look at the watch and destroys it - it contained a GPS locator that could be used to track the wearer. This 'gift' gets Pierce classified as a threat to Admin by The Machine.

* BullyingTheDragon: To be fair, Reese did warn Jeremy in advance to keep his hands to himself.



* DoNotTauntCthulhu: To be fair, Reese did warn Jeremy in advance to keep his hands to himself.


* CuttingTheKnot: Reese gets tired of trying the impossibility of following Pierce with his erratic behaviour and infinite resources, so just slugs his way past his security and comes clean about why he's here. Pierce is so intrigued, it actually works.

* BirdsOfAFeather: Finch clearly identifies with the genius Finch, though not his manic behavior. Turns out [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Pierce is an idealist at heart too]]. Averted when Reese tries to introduce himself as a fellow millionaire, Pierce quickly blows him off. Reese the MysteriousProtector is far more interesting.

* EccentricMillionaire: Lampshaded by a bemused Finch. "How...eccentric." Turns up Pierce is actually playing up his own eccentricity.
