Liv eats the brain of a dominatrix in an attempt to solve her two-week-old murder, while Major goes on his first mission with Fillmore-Graves.
- Air Guitar: Tanner and Don E. play an extended air guitar duet while on Lucky U.
- Blackmail: Johnny Frost is being blackmailed by the murderer.
- Good Cop/Bad Cop: Liv and Clive. Thanks to the brain she's on, Liv gets to be the bad cop for once.
- Relationship Reset Button: It hasn't happened yet, but Liv and Major discuss the fact that this is coming after he takes the cure.
- Safe Word:
- Johnny Frost's is "climate change."
- When Liv and Ravi are walking in the park pretending to be a couple, Ravi spits out a series of random words ("Zucchini. Fiddlesticks. Mollycoddle.") in the hope that one of them turns out to be his safe word.
- Shout-Out: Major's mission is to rescue some hostages from Qumarian separatists, continuing the Running Gag that all the Fillmore-Graves missions happen in fictional countries from The West Wing.
- Undercover as Lovers: Liv and Ravi do a brief version as part of the plan to catch Johnny Frost's blackmailer.
- Unfortunate Names: Major asks Liv to rename him something a little less silly than "Major Lilywhite" after he loses his memory. She suggests "Gern Blanston."
- Wall Jump: Major pulls one off during the mission, while under the influence of SuperMax.
