* ScienceIsGood: Although science experiments [[GoneHorriblyWrong go horribly wrong]] ([[GoneHorriblyRight or right]]) [[OnceAnEpisode every week]], it's (almost) always in service to the goal of pushing back the boundaries of humanity's knowledge of the universe. The science and technology may be firmly HollywoodScience, but there's an underlying respect for the ''idea'' of science -- that is, a tool that we can use to better understand the world around us and how it works -- that runs through the entirety of the series. There's occasional hand-wringing (and more than a few episode plots) that revolve around Eureka and Global Dynamics working on strictly military projects, but the argument is made that the pure research has to be funded somehow, and developing weapons for the military is a small price to pay for the wealth of knowledge Eureka produces. Even the idea of scientific knowledge being used to create better weapons isn't dismissed out of hand: America has enemies, and while MutuallyAssuredDestruction isn't the ''best'' answer to humanity's violent tendencies, it's at least ''an'' answer.
-->'''Henry''': She was an Austrian physicist who discovered nuclear fission which then led to the invention of the atomic bomb.\\
'''Jack''': [[SarcasmMode Oh, well, by all means, let's celebrate that!]]\\
'''Zoe''': [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lise_Meitner Meitner]] refused to work on the bomb, dad.\\
'''Jack''': Oh.\\
'''Henry''': Tonight's dance is a tribute to ''her'' ingenuity, not what others chose to do with it. Her passion for exploration, her commitment to bettering the world, ''is'' the ideal Eureka is meant to strive, to meet. ''That's'' what we're celebrating.

** In season 4's "liftoff", Allison says that a shuttle hitting eureka at the speed of light would leave a "mile deep crater". However, objects approach infinite mass the closer they get to lightspeed. An infinitely massive shuttle hitting the ground at about 300,000 Km/s would obliterate the planet, not make a big crater.

Important characters include Carter's rebellious teenage daughter, Zoe, who turned out to be [[ObfuscatingStupidity a lot smarter than you might expect at first glance]], and Deputy Jo Lupo, [[ObfuscatingStupidity likewise.]] For much of the show's run, Carter is involved in a {{UST}} laden LoveTriangle with Allison Blake and Nathan Stark (her ex-husband and one of the aforementioned heads of Global Dynamics-- Allison takes over [[spoiler: after Kim's death leads to Stark's demotion]]). There's also Henry, one of the [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist brilliant minds in town]] and probably Jack's best friend; [[ButtMonkey Fargo]], who designed Jack's Smart House ([[FunWithAcronyms S.A.R.A.H.]], who is a character in her own right); and Taggart, who is what happens when you feed Steve Irwin ParanoiaFuel and set him loose in a town full of crazies.
