Cut to Jason watching ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' while Paige was napping.
* LoverTugOfWar: Engages in this with Juan Carlos in one strip, as a parallel to Paige's struggles in picking French or Spanish as her language class.



* SorryILeftTheBGMOn: Variation: In one strip with Paige dreaming of him (in a manner similar to Rapunzel), she is monologuing with Pierre as he comes up, and was about to kiss him... only for him to uncharacteristically say "Let's go with U.S. Presidents for $400, please, Alex."

* GenreBlind: Cannot see that his intern Skip is only peppering him with meaningless flattery until he can latch on to his supervisor.



* YesMan: Can't see than his intern Skip is one, only buttering him up until he can latch on to an executive.

* PhraseCatcher: "Ooh, Pierre."

* IdiotBall: Although Roger has done his stupid parts, the biggest stupid decision he ever made was when he tried to fix the furnace. Due to not quite remembering what the heating guy said, he turned the safety cut-off to the off position, which caused the gas to leak in a hissing manner, and after putting on furnace gloves, putting a lit match on a stick, and covered his face with his free hand while placing said lit match into the furnace. Things literally blew up in Roger's face, creating an explosion powerful enough to leave an outline of Roger Fox on the wall (although he survived), and shaking the foundation of the house.
** You know, when most people hear a loud hissing in the basement next to the furnace, they don't immediately assume there's a snake hiding somewhere (like Roger did). IdiotBall, indeed.

** It was even the subject of an arc in the story, where Andy tries to have him go without coffee without a day thinking he is addicted to it. Predictably, it really just shows that Roger truly can't function without coffee such as zoning out while Andy is trying to talk, not actually knowing that Jason is pouring elbow macaroni and vinegar instead of cereal and milk, tripping down the basement steps because he mistook the basement door for the front door, and going through a productive and successful work day...only to find around noon that he was in the wrong building.

Predictably, it really just shows that Roger truly can't function without coffee such as zoning out while Andy is trying to talk, not actually knowing that Jason is pouring elbow raw macaroni and vinegar instead of cereal and milk, tripping down the basement steps because he mistook the basement door for the front door, and going through a productive and successful work day...only to find around noon that he was in the wrong building.



* TechnologicallyBlindElders: Roger is described as still trying to catch up with the technology of TheSeventies. In a comic strip that gleefully uses ComicBookTime, it only gets worse (at one point he buys the Windows version of a program instead of the Mac, since there's a window right there in the computer room).

* ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping: Unlike her husband this is on ''purpose'' as part of her role as a MoralGuardian. On at least on occasion she's gotten her kids thesauruses for their Christmas presents.
* CordonBleughChef: Andy can cook competently, she just prefers to make "health food" instead of using normal ingredients.
** It sometimes borders on LethalChef territory, such as the arc where she burns Thanksgiving dinner in an attempt to try and outdo her mother, whom everyone thinks is perfect. They ended up having pizza.

* GrammarNazi: As an English major, she's prone to [[YouMakeMeSic correcting others' grammar]], sometimes going off on rants about it.
** In one shining example, she rants about someone on TV saying "realtor" wrong, after which Jason says "Wow, you're really going nucular." just to get a rise out of her.

* BigBrotherBully: Sometimes to Paige and Jason. His bad attitude towards Paige comes mostly from his conviction that as a high school junior, he's supposed to pick on freshmen students like his sister.

** Speaking of Thanksgiving, he also managed to eat two thanksgiving dinners (one with his Family, another with Denise's family), with Roger congratulating on deciding to do both, while Andy, shocked that he would actually have two thanksgiving dinners, [[YoureInsane half asked and half exclaimed if he was insane]].

* BurgerFool: Although not a fast-food job, Peter's job at the local theater counts. He's constantly made to wash the bathrooms, once had to wear a {{Garfield}} costume to promote the movie, and all in all receives very little pay (including deductions for all the food he eats while working).
