* CharacterDevelopment: He starts out as an archetypal too-cool-for-school bad-boy, but by the end of the series, after several [[BreakTheHaughty humbling experiences]], he has become friends with Sam's group.

* CharacterDevelopment: He starts out as an archetypal too-cool-for-school bad-boy, but by the end of the series, after several [[BreakTheHaughty humbling experiences]], he has become friends with Sam's group. There's also more stress over time on his academic and personal troubles, as he seems perfectly aware of his limitations but doesn't know how to break through them.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyForbiddingFather: His dad despises his musical hobby and sells his drum set without telling him. Nick naturally resents this and even runs away from home in one episode.


Added DiffLines:

* IntergenerationalFriendship: He and Lindsay's parents bond when Nick spends the night at the Weirs' home, to Lindsay's surprise. Harold at least sympathizes with Nick's difficult relationship with his dad, while Jean is just that nice to everyone.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Even Daniel concedes that he's right that Nick's unlikely to become a successful drummer and encourages Nick to do it for fun rather than as a career. The Colonel's strict and intolerant attitude though prevents Nick from seeing his side of the argument.

The Colonel's strict and intolerant attitude though (especially his selling Nick's drum set without telling him) prevents Nick from seeing his side of the argument.



* AdultsAreUseless: Zig-zagged. He's genuinely sympathetic to the students and tries to help them out, but they aren't always receptive to his advice and his TotallyRadical attitude often irritates them.



* HippieTeacher

to:

* HippieTeacherHippieTeacher: He's this to a T, even if you ignore his long hair, general attitude and musician background. He mentions protesting the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar in his youth, has a [[UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter Carter]]/Mondale poster in his office and is even deemed a "security risk" by the Secret Service when George Bush visits the school.



* SadistTeacher

to:

* SadistTeacherPetTheDog: He gets a few sympathetic moments throughout the series, like when he stops a kid who bullies Neal about his ventriloquist dummy, but they're mostly incidental.
* SadistTeacher: A martinet who's more concerned with running an orderly classroom than connecting with students. It's especially evident in "Tests and Breasts" when he makes his contempt for Daniel abundantly clear, and shows no interest in Lindsay's offer to help tutor him.

Added DiffLines:

* ConspiracyTheorist: Tries convincing Lindsay that UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush was behind UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan's attempted assassination. Lindsay doesn't buy it.

* HeelFaceTurn: He does this briefly, but only after almost killing Bill by hiding a peanut in his sandwhich, to which he did not realise Bill was deathly allergic. A small amount of RedemptionRejection in that he does not take the Geeks up on their offer of friendship, though he is noticably nicer to them after this.

* PlayingGertrude: The actress was only 34, playing the parent of a son about 14-15 (and a 17 year age difference in the actors). Not out of the realm of possibility, but still pretty young, and she looks younger.
