* DawsonCasting: According to Edie [=McClurg=] herself, she was in her 30's when she filmed the movie. Chelan, however, is actually an inversion as, even though she was 20 when the '02 film came out, she was probably about 18 or 19 when she filmed it.

* WomanInBlack: In the novel, she usually wears black clothing. She's evil, of course.

* {{Badass}}: The stuff she can pull off makes her easily qualified.
** BadassAdorable: The version portrayed by Creator/ChloeMoretz is just so small, cuddly and cute you'd wanna [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe take her home with you]] too.

* DawsonCasting: 23-year-old Irving in the '76 version, 22-year-old [=McClure=] in the '02 version, and 23-year-old Wilde in the '13 version.



* DawsonCasting: 25-year-old Katt in the '76 version, 26-year-old Mehler in the '02 version.



* DawsonCasting: 26-year-old Allen in the '76 version, 20-year-old de Ravin in the '02 version, and 24-year-old Doubleday in the '13 version.



* DawsonCasting: 22-year-old Travolta in the '76 film, and 24-year-old Russell in the '13 version. However, it's stated in the '13 version that he doesn't go to the school, meaning that there's a good chance he's older than high school age.
** In the book, he's 19 and has dropped out of school.



* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Subverted. Chris flashes back in the book to the first time they did it. Billy made unwanted advances on her and she was initially disgusted. But she quickly finds herself enjoying it and gets into it. So essentially Chris is with him because Billy is ''really'' good in the sack.

* [[HenpeckedHusband Henpecked Boyfriend]]: In the original script for the '13 version, Sue states that, for all of Billy's bravado, Chris essentially has him under her thumb, with it being implied that this is why he agreed to go through with Chris' prank. Ironically, the actual finished film has the exact opposite portrayal, with him acting controlling toward Chris and putting pressure on ''her.'' He's henpecked by her in the '76 film. But this is notably averted in the book where Billy's refusal to be this is the reason Chris is attracted to him.

** Averted in the book, where his refusal to be this is the reason Chris is attracted to him.
** Played straight in the '76 version. While he slaps her around once or twice, it's made clear that Chris is calling the shots in their relationship.

Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsMyNameOnForeign: Desjardin = of the garden in French. So a surname close to "gardener" in theater makes sense.
