* AllJustADream: Zig-zagged in one story arc. Zoe and Hammie both want extravagant amounts of gifts for Christmas. Darryl then tells them how, when he was a kid, he wanted so badly to have a toy airplane for Christmas but tired of it within a day. Zoe and Hammie then dream that they receive a ridiculous amount of Christmas gifts, and [[spoiler: upon finding themselves overwhelmed, try to get a letter to Santa (via toy airplane) asking for the excess gifts to be returned.]] Wanda compliments Darryl on the poignancy of his story on the airplane, which he admits he made up [[spoiler: just as a toy airplane is visible on the roof behind him.]]

* IAteWhat: In the Easter 2012 Sunday Strip, Darryl is continuously asking Hammie, Zoe, and Wren if they are certain if they found all of the Easter eggs in the area while trying to heavily hint at the egg on the porch lamp. The kids continuously attempt to insist that they have found every single one, before Hammie points out just as Darryl is about to eat the egg that the one on the porch light didn't count, as that was there since last year. Cue Darryl rushing inside to locate a restroom, presumably to vomit up the egg he just ate. It can be seen [[http://babyblues.com/comics/April-8-2012/ here]].

* EverythingsBetterWithMotorcycles: [[http://babyblues.com/comics/October-6-1997/ Hammie]] and [[http://babyblues.com/comics/February-6-2009/ Darryl]] are guilty of this trope.

* ParanoiaGambit: In one Sunday strip, Zoe goes to take a shower and warns Hammie not to try and scare her. In fact, just to make sure, she announces that she intends to lock the door. Hammie says, "Good," which convinces Zoe he must have rigged the doorknob somehow. She announces she don't touch it to prevent his trick from working, but then realizes that means he can come in and scare her like always.

-->'''Zoe''': MOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
-->'''Hammie''': Don't you think it's cool when I can drive Zoe crazy by not doing anything at all?
-->'''Darryl''': ''(sigh)''

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: Back when Wanda was still nursing Hammie, two different strips had a similar punchline relating to this. In one instance, a male passenger sitting next to Wanda on an airplane protested to her feeding Hammie in public, calling it "disgusting"...while he's clearly looking at [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a Playboy centerfold]]. In another series, a male lifeguard tried to kick Wanda out of a public pool, claiming her breastfeeding Hammie violated decency standards...only to stop ''mid-sentence'' in order to ogle at a nearby woman in a [[MsFanservice barely-there bikini]].

* AdultFear: Zoe goes missing in a department store when Wanda looks away for one second. Thankfully she's found but Wanda (and later Darryl when he's told the story) are both in tears.


Added DiffLines:

** When Zoe gets her first shot, ''Wanda'' was the one in tears rather than Zoe.


Added DiffLines:

* FieryRedhead: Zoe is very spirited and precocious with a temper that Hammie has a knack for flaring up.

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In one Sunday strip, Zoe avoided punishment for spilling a bag of flour on her head because Wanda was laughing too hard at the scene. In another weekly strip, Wanda sent Zoe and Hammie to their rooms for covering their faces in makeup...only to let them out once she had stopped laughing.

* PuppyDogEyes: Zoe's a master at these. Darryl falls for it every single time (he refers to them as "Bambi Eyes" in one strip).

** There have been a few strips where this joke was the punchline, more often than not involving Darryl. One strip had him eating French Fries at a fast-food joint, only to find out Zoe had been getting them from under the table. In another, Darryl takes a bite of a then-toddler Zoe's toast, only to spit it out when Wanda says to Zoe "You usually stop after you lick all the peanut butter off!"
