Have spotlight reindex any volume

Its rare, but sometimes spotlight gets a little dumb. It will start missing things in /Applications or people in your address book. If this happens to you then you can have it reindex the volume. Just run mdutil -E /  (where / is the volume you want to reindex) as root.
