Added DiffLines:

* MakeupIsEvil: When "Koochie" refuses to tell him the truth, Hannibal tells her she seems like a partially good girl beneath the avarice and makeup, and advises her that lying isn't nice.


* FiveSecondForeshadowing: As the doctor is examining B.A., who is in a state of near-collapse from the spiked milk, Hannibal notices a gold watch on his wrist. He immediately forces the doctor to put his hands up, realizing that he saw that same gold watch on the milkman's wrist.

* RoaringRampageOfRescue: Not having the option of calling in the police, Hannibal goes after the mercenaries who kidnapped his team himself.

* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Dr. Sullivan suggests calling the police and letting them go after the people who kidnapped the rest of the team, rather than Hannibal pulling a rescue mission on his own. Hannibal points out that Face, B.A., Murdock, and himself are all wanted by the police, so they can't bring them into this.

* UnflinchingWalk: A truly epic variation. An explosion is timed to the flick of Hannibal placidly lighting his cigar. Hannibal isn't doing a PowerWalk away from it (he's already satisfied with the distance), but it has the "no reaction" part down pat.


* PhysicalFitnessPunishment: According to Hannibal, the A-Team training rules state whoever comes in last on their obstacle course has to run extra. Face comes in behind the other three, meaning he has to jog back to the house (which inadvertently sets him up to be kidnapped).

* DescriptionCut: After Murdock is kidnapped and tied up next to Face, the two are discussing what happened to them and Face remarks, "I don't know how they think they're gonna get B.A. The man is indestructible."

* MasterOfDisguise: One member of the rival team is said to be very good at disguising himself. However, he fails to take off a gold watch from one disguise to another, which lets Hannibal realize who he is.

* DisconnectedByDeath: {{Downplayed|Trope}}; Hannibal, knowing he's in bad shape, calls Tawnia and orders her to get Dr. Sullivan from Bad Rock. Midway through the call, he collapses, and Tawnia is left trying to raise him over the phone.

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished:
** Murdock hears a dog whining in the bushes and leaves the car to pick it up, thinking that a driver hit it and then drove away. It's a trap on the part of the bad guys, who meet him with guns as he comes out of the bushes.
