* ComicallyMissingThePoint: On the January page of the ''1990 Dykes To Watch Out For Calendar'', Mo's then-girlfriend Harriet takes a look at Mo's New Year's resolutions (reading out numbers 22 to 25 of a [[LongList very long list]]), and when asked about her own resolution says she hasn't made any. Mo immediately springs into action: -->'''Mo:''' Aw, don't worry, sweetie! I'll help you make your list! Your first resolution could be to ask for a raise at work. You know they don't pay you what you are worth! And number two could be to become more politically active! -->'''Harriet:''' Okay! And make number three to find a new girlfriend who isn't controlling, anal-retentive or driven by liberal guilt. -->'''Mo:''' There you go! See, it's easy once you get started! Does 'anal-retentive' have a hyphen? -->'''Harriet:''' ''(rolls eyes).''

This leads to a scene after Ginger first met Samia (who owns a dog named Anubis):

I don't even know if she's a lesbian. --> '''Stuart:''' Hey, Ginger, look sharp, here comes that gorgeous woman with the golden retriever. --> '''Lois:''' Given his track record, I'd call that as good as a signed affidavit.

* EroticEating: Has been known to occur in the bonus story sections of the collections, which could devote more space to such things than the regular instalments. For instance in ''Hot, Throbbing Dykes To Watch Out For'' Sydney prepares a tiramis˙ to entice Mo on one of their early dates (once Mo overcomes her misgivings against dairy, sugar and chocolate, things take off quite satisfyingly), and in ''Post-Dykes To Watch Out For'' Clarice and Toni can be seen cavorting in bed with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup.

--> '''Sydney:''' Stuart? D'you really want to apply that solar model to human behavior? After all, darkness triumphs over the light in June. Unless you ''mean'' that war is inevitable, a kind of cyclical, Bataillean engergy -- a view with which I'm inclined to agree. ''(everybody glares at her)'' I'm just saying.
