  • Cat Fight: Sarah gets into one with La Ciudad.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Chuck learning to Tango wasn't for nothing.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: La Ciudad has a nasty one on her neck that Chuck flashes on to identify her. It later tips Sarah off as well.

  • Shout-Out: Chuck says he thinks the painting has a Bob Rossian feel to it.
  • Samus Is a Girl: The arms dealer is the beautiful woman Chuck starts dancing with.
    • Though this is obvious to anyone with even a basic knowledge of spanish; "La" is a feminine pronoun.
  • Tuxedo and Martini: What the episode invokes.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Each of the couriers are killed after delivering the painting.
