* DependingOnTheWriter: Depending on the episode he's in, Boomhauer is either standing aside (on account of being the OnlySaneMan or [[LockedOutOfTheLoop not even a part of whatever kind of zany things Bill and Dale are doing]]), or he's going along with them.



* GenerationXerox: Apparently, Boomhauer's unintelligible way of speaking was passed down from his mother, who also talks like that. And his Meemaw, for that matter.

* InformedAttribute: Boomhauer is often said to be the most mature, best put together of Hank's friends to the point that out of them he's the only one of them Hank respects, but the thing is Boomhauer often goes along and willing participates in many of the zany harebrained schemes, Dale and Bill will come up with, and gets in as much trouble as they do.

* BackhandedCompliment: He may well have meant it to be sincere, but when he talks about how Hank is a better dad than he is, he says "At least you made Bobby. All I made was you."

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In earlier seasons Enrique had a more introverted personality in later seasons he's more extroverted, and social.



* NegativeContinuity: In "Enrique-cilable Differences", Enrique has a rocky marriage, and his children are implied to have grown up and moved out. In "Lady and Gentrification," he has a loving wife and a 15 year old daughter (unless that's a second wife and a stepdaughter he treats like a real daughter, but that doesn't seem likely).

Added DiffLines:

* SoapBoxSadie: He frequently gets invested in various social and/or political causes. Rather than being used to deliver {{Author Tract}}s, his activism is handled fairly realistically; like your average 13-year-old, he's admirably idealistic and passionate, but he's also ill-informed and myopic, usually just wholeheartedly buying into whatever his peers or teachers tell him to believe without applying any critical thinking to the matter.

* CampStraight: Oh yes. Even without Hank's rigid view on masculinity Bobby's interests and mannerisms are feminine, such as tending roses and skipping around.

Added DiffLines:

* RaginCajun: It's well-hidden most of the time, but it's there. For the most part he's a depressed sad-sack who's been beaten down by life and a total ButtMonkey, but if anyone manages to really piss him off, it ''ain't'' gonna be pretty.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: Her main motivation in "Lost in [=MySpace=]": she just wants Hank and Buck to recognize her talents rather than make her do work she's not qualified for. That she goes ''way'' overboard kind of negates her point.
