USA Network is known for shows with quirky characters. "Suits" is that kind of show. The best thing about "Suits" is that all the characters are quirky. Here are some of the quirkiest traits of the "Suits" characters.

Harvey loves to collect sports memorabilia.

Harvey's sports memorabilia collection is quite extensive. In fact, the memorabilia comprises the major design element in his office, with autographed basketballs lining the entire expansive windowsill. He doesn't like it when people touch the ones he feels are quite valuable, as we learn in the Season 1 finale episode, "Dog Fight."

The can opener ritual between Harvey and Donna.

In the episode "Dog Fight," Harvey and Donna decide to do the mysterious can opener ritual before a big trial. They never say why they need the can opener, or what they do with it. Obviously, the objective of the scene was to make the viewer crazy with curiosity and speculation.

Mike's memory

Mike has an eidetic (photographic) memory. It is one of the first things we learn about the show in the "Pilot" episode. It's not just an unusual ability for a lawyer. The fact that he always used his memory to cheat and for deal drugs before becoming a "lawyer" is what really makes him quirky. That cheating mentality caused him to be a "slacker lawyer," which is not very common in that profession.

Jessica likes it when Harvey steps out of line.

In the "Pilot" episode, Jessica reveals that she likes it when Harvey stands up to her. Harvey threatens to leave the firm and take his clients with him unless she gives him back his promotion. Jessica sneaks a little smirk while her back is turned to him. That smirk explains a lot about their odd relationship when Jessica continually allows Harvey to keep the top spot, above Louis, despite the fact that he continuously goes against her wishes throughout the season.

Louis feels the need to share all the details of his love life.

Louis proves that he is the quirkiest character on the show in the episode "The Shelf Life" when he attempts to share all the details of his latest sexual conquest with Mike, despite Mike's pleading expression for him not to. Louis is incapable of taking social cues, so he tries to continue his story until Mike can no longer bear the agonizingly awkward moment and leaves Louis's office. Louis takes Mike's rushing off as an indication that Mike must be a virgin.
