* SpiritedYoungLady: As a rule is quite ladylike and very "proper", but can be and often is quite bold (she is often the one most likely to stand up to any of the others), and many times expresses her desire to be accepted into the "down-to-earth" activities of the others.
** Arguably [[DownplayedTrope downplayed at times]], in that she fails in many of the careers she pursues (though she is indicated to be quite talented in poetry and writing, when she doesn't "overdo" it), and may not be as independent as she likes to think (her as-if-against-her-will connection to Sam, for one). Still, she is arguably no less successful than most established archetypes of the trope. ([[PrideAndPrejudice Elizabeth Bennett]] is hardly TheAce, for example.)
** One gets the feeling Diane is something of a {{Deconstruction}} of the trope--her arcs effectively boiling down to a Lady who'd fit right at home in a Creator/JaneAusten novel being forced to cope with the "modern-day" attitudes and trends that made the trope fade away in the first place....

** Turns out she's quite fond of the music of BobDylan, if "How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Call You Back" is any indication. She also loves "Our House".

* SelectiveObliviousness: ''Refuses'' to acknowledge Henri having anything less than perfectly innocent motivations (no matter how blatantly obvious...which is ''the norm'').

However, she's InnocentlyInsensitive and doesn't understand how that makes Woody feel.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** She was also the first to panic, and run to find Frasier when the gang catch him on the news, threatening to kill himself. And later, when he officially calls of his marriage to Lilith, who wanted him back, she and Sam don't look happy.
** When Sam prepares to break his n-sex vow to God, Carla says a prayer for him.
** And a casual moment when she offers to walk Woody to his car when they leave.

* TheOtherDarrin: Sort of, Gary was basically played by two actors who alternated throughout the series based on availability.

Added DiffLines:

** They do manage to break her, in a big way, in "Diane Chambers Day". She doesn't come back to work the next day because she can't stop crying. However, the gang manage to make her feel like she belongs by taking her to the opera (well, not Carla, but that's her gift to Diane - not coming. Diane thanks her.)
