* Adorkable: Especially in the early third season, fitting the bill perfectly. Not so much on season four although it does come up sometimes.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: While Bright is certainly not a bad boy per se, he does sort of fill that gap within the show universe. She liked him from day one. Lampshaded in that she admitted to Amy she was 'surprisingly shallow.'




to:

** She's also a bit of a GenderFlip version of Ephram: social outcast (at first), love interest of one of the Abbott siblings, best friend of the other Abbott sibling, strained relationship with a parent, losing the other parent whilst still a teenager, similar sense of humour (as pointed out by both aforementioned Abbott siblings).

* WealthyPhilanthropist: Andy was a top-notch brain surgeon in New York, but decided to move to a small town and work as GP, offering his services free of charge. An amazing thing in America where lots of people don't have insurance and often can't afford any treatment at all.
-->'''Edna:''' Remind me again why you're offering this thankless town free medicine?
-->'''Andy:''' Well, the long answer is that after fifteen years of making money off of other people's sickness, I've decided to alleviate my guilt by doing something incredibly altruistic. The short answer is: I'm nuts!

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Hurting or insulting his family in any way is enough to rile Harold up to genuine anger. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by his sister Linda in Season 2 as the news of her HIV infection became apparent to the rest of the town members.
-->'''Linda:''' When someone comes after you, you argue. But when someone comes after someone you love - the minute you see blood - you go for the throat.
-->'''Harold''': That's what you do for a family. You fight. You go too far.

* AmbiguousDisorder: At first he's portrayed that way, then he's toned down to being ''just'' socially awkward as part of his inner conflict, and that's resolved by the end of the series.

* Meganekko




to:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Averted. While she's basically filling the gap left by Laynie's off-screen departure, a lot more focus is given to her and there's CharacterDevelopment to the point that on Season 4 she's virtually got as much screen time as any starring character except for Andy, Ephram and Amy, which also makes her an EnsembleDarkhorse.


Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: She's introduced to the series soon after Linda Abbott leaves and has a very similar role as a LoveInterest for Andy. Both relationships were initially opposed by first-degree relatives of both (Deliah and Harold, Deliah and Charlie, respectively) and they both ended soon after they'd started to feel comfortable together and were ready to become public.
