* TheGamblingAddict: "Double Down" reveals he struggled with this in college and only gave up as a promise to Janie. After Simone breaks up with him, though, he relapses--going through the ups and downs until Lauren thoroughly whipped him at cards.




to:

* YankTheDogsChain: Took the breakup with Simone hard because he thought their relationship was his big chance to get over his wife's death and graduate from the group.



* TheGamblingAddict: Her father was one, which is why she cautions Ryan so strongly about it in "Double Down." She also picked up a few tricks because of her father and crushes Ryan at cards to get him to give up gambling, though she starts to get tempted herself on the way out and has to be pulled away from a roulette wheel before it goes too far.



* NotSoDifferent: Much as she sometimes hates to admit it, she can relate to Ryan more than anyone else in the group due to losing a spouse and struggling in the dating world.



* PersonAsVerb: Finds his name becomes synonymous with losing in "Double Down" because of a gambling cold streak.

* HiddenDepths: Humorously subverted in "Go Deep." He wants to impress Simone by seeming very intellectual and spiritual, but he really doesn't care for such pursuits when giving them a try and ultimately tells her the truth. [[spoiler:It turns out Simone was exaggerating, as well]].



* FreudianSlip: She agrees to represent Danny in his divorce to help get him a fair deal. It works, but she wants to take it farther and make Danny's adulterous wife suffer despite even his objections. The exchange gets to the heart of what she's really been anger about this whole time.
-->'''Danny:''' I just wanna move on.\\
'''Anne:''' Danny, the woman made a vow. She promised to be there through good times and bad by your side forever. She doesn't get to leave because she gets bored, or she finds someone new, or she forgets to take her damn heart medication!



* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: It's revealed she struggles with respecting her partner's memory and being angry at her for lying about taking heart medication.



* TheResenter: "Go Deep" reveals she's actually been holding back resentment towards Ryan for always eating up the group's time with his problems and towards Lauren for not reining that in.




to:

* WhatTheHellHero: One of the few times Yolanda ever demonstrated any backbone was when she gets temporarily graduates from the group. She still leans on the others to help her through her problems, just in different locations. Ultimately, they proceed to phase her out and lie about what happened, which she yells at them for. When they tell Yolanda she's a lot to take, Lauren attempts to mediate and the truth comes out.
-->'''Yolanda:''' Don't pretend to be good at this. If these losers hadn't pressured me into graduating so you could have a victory, no one would ever leave this group.



* FiveStagesOfGrief: Initially represents denial. He pointedly avoids visiting his brother in the hospital and distracts himself with video games. "Videogame, Set, Match" in part is about helping him to start moving past this.




to:

* VitriolicBestBuds: He seems to think he has this with Yolanda and that that's why it's okay for him to repeatedly insult her, despite her insisting otherwise.


Added DiffLines:

* TheManBehindTheCurtain: Reveals he pretended to be their boss in various statements and phone calls in order to get Ryan to do things without having to be the bad guy. Ryan admits he should've noticed how similar the voice on the phone was.

Added DiffLines:

* BitchInSheepsClothing: She remarks she sounds all sweet and innocent, but she can be pretty mean when she has to be.
* BrilliantButLazy: Good at coming up with schemes, but she's not interested in applying herself on everyday matters.
