* BrattyTeenageDaughter: To Bob, both out of rebellion and when he's doing something she doesn't want or like. The only reason she's not called out on it is because Bob's an ExtremeDoormat. He does, however, snap back at her when she tries to get him to stop dating Jackie's mom.



* HiddenHeartOfGold: He's a genuinely good-natured and upstanding guy, but he ''hates'' openly displaying it.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: "They didn't leave me at the mall. They forgot me. They were drunk."

* HiddenHeartOfGold: He's a genuinely good-natured and upstanding guy, but he ''hates'' openly displaying it. \n Being around Kitty and, eventually, Jackie has drawn that side out of him a bit more.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: "They didn't leave me at the mall. They forgot me. They were drunk."" The rest of it, though, is genuinely upsetting and taken seriously.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He does care for his friends.
* KnightInSourArmor: Long before they hooked up, Jackie had a crush on Hyde from his defending her. When he beats up a guy who insulted her at Red's barbecue, she sees him as a KnightInShiningArmor, much to his embarassment and frustration.

* TroubledButCute: Jackie certainly thinks so. She actually might be right.



** In the [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby-Doo]] animated circle, Fez is seen eating almost like Shaggy.



* HeyYou



* HeyYou



* ExtremeDoormat: Especially after his wife leaves.



* NiceGuy: Wouldn't he have to be to hang out with Red all the time? Kelso also reasoned that this trope was how Bob hooks up with attractive women.

to:

* KickTheDog: Oh, Bob. First he ends up going out of business due to Price Mart coming in. Then his wife leaves him and his daughter to go to California which puts him in a deep depression. And then another girlfriend he really got along well with leaves him so upset that he wouldn't even leave his bed.
* NiceGuy: Wouldn't he have to be to hang out with Red all the time? Kelso also reasoned that this trope was how Bob hooks up with attractive women. As old-fashioned as Bob can be, he has put his family ahead of himself so many times that a lot of the bad things that happen to him feel almost undeserved.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDogBitesBack: When it came to dating Pam, Donna and Jackie were very much against this. Bob, however, finally stands up for himself and says that he doesn't need his daughter telling him how he should be happy.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Kitty's parents are quite a doozy...
--->'''Hyde''': What's wrong with Mrs. Forman's parents?
--->'''Kitty''': Nothing. They're just...they're very complicated people who can't be summed up in a couple of words.
--->'''Eric''': Grandma yells, Grandpa drinks.
--->'''Red''': That pretty much summed it up.
--->'''Kitty''': Now, that is not true. My father is a wonderful man who just...gets a little sleepy. And my mother, well...fine, is a little remote. Which I have learned through many helpful books makes it impossible for her to say "I love you." Even if it's the only thing in the world a sad little girl needs to hear.

* CharacterDevelopment: When she started dating Hyde.
** She could very well be the most developed character in the entire show. Many of the characters remain rather static throughout the series but Jackie goes from being a vapid, money-obsessed cheerleader stifling her true self for the sake of popularity to a competent, though still headstrong woman who isn't afraid to take care of herself and doesn't hide who she is.

* DumbassHasAPoint: When Kelso wants to find out if he's the police academy stooge, Eric suggests just asking his commander, but Kelso reminds him that not knowing is the whole point.

* NeverMyFault: Tends to blame Eric for things that are his own fault, or that both of them together are responsible, such as when they both forgot Kitty's birthday.
* NotSoAboveItAll: For all his talk, Red is usually willing to be immature too. Examples include feeding the boys dead moths as revenge for a prank gone wrong, openly refusing to go to church, bluntly refusing to help people move, being unable to keep a straight face when talking about Eric killing Donna's cat, stealing Bob's annoying Christmas decorations, and buying a motorcycle with his first paycheck instead of investing it in the family.

birthday. He was especially low enough to blame Eric for [[spoiler: wrecking Bob's barbecue, not knowing that Bob was losing his store, when it was '''''all of Red's fault''''' as he started the barbecue war first due to jealousy and couldn't admit he was wrong... at least, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold until he went over to repair the damage he'd done to Bob]] and helped him get Bob's barbecue back into full swing, as well as apologize for it.]]
