Added DiffLines:

* FlashInThePanFad: One storyline had Paige and Nicole debating whether to steal a popular CD from the music store, since they don't have enough money to buy it. Paige wants to just wait and buy the CD when they do have the money, but Nicole counters that they need the album ''now'', because the band will be completely passé by the end of the week, if not sooner.
-->'''Paige:''' There's a definite downside to liking flash-in-the-pan groups.

Added DiffLines:

** Peter wearing a catcher's mask so that [[MisterMuffykins Fauntleroy]] couldn't bite him? Sure, it was worth a shot. Crouching down and taunting Fauntleroy to do his worst? Not such a great idea.
--->'''Peter''' ''[[GilliganCut (speaking through a layer of bandages)]]'': Did you know that some dogs' heads are smaller than a baseball?

* WhamShot: After a week's worth of strips where Paige is over the moon about getting notes from a secret admirer, the last panel of Saturday's strip reveals the sender: [[spoiler: [[MoodWhiplash It's Peter and Steve, writing another note and snickering over how gullible Peter's sister is]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* IWasBeatenByAGirl: Invoked by Jason when Eileen gets a higher score than him on a math test. Most people would be thrilled with a score of 102, but not Jason, especially when the person scoring 106 percent is a girl.
--> '''Jason:''' The lowest of the low! The vilest of the vile! And now one of their wretched ilk has beaten me at math! It's more than I can STAND!
--> '''Andy:''' ''[deadpan]'' Speaking as one of the wretched... bummer.
--> '''Jason:''' I'm not getting the sympathy I think I deserve. Where's Dad?

Added DiffLines:

* TattooSharpie: One strip had Jason try to remove an ink goatee from Peter (having tricked him into using a blue permanent marker), which unfortunately smeared all over his face instead. He went to school the next day with has face entirely blue... with the effect that the guys thought he looked like a StarTrek alien, while the girls thought he looked like LeonardoDiCaprio towards the end of ''Film/{{Titanic}}''.
--> '''Peter:''' So between the teasing and the google-eyed fawning, it averaged out okay.
--> '''[[HollywoodNerd Jason:]]''' Huh. I though girls ''liked'' Dicaprio.
--> '''Peter:''' You and I share so many genes, and yet...

* JustTheIntroductionToTheOpposites: Played with in one strip, when Paige, Nicole and her fellow freshman classmates are actually ''excited'' about eating MysteryMeat for lunch. It turns out they're legitimately excited because they don't know what mystery meat actually ''is''.
--> '''Cafeteria Worker A:''' These poor freshmen break my heart.
--> '''Cafeteria Worker B:''' You took an oath. Now glop it on.



* LethalEatery: The high school cafeteria.



* MysteryMeat: Any strip set in the school cafeteria.

* BleepDammit: One Sunday strip has Jason giddy with excitement while singing a song about the new-fallen snow, while Roger is about to be late for work because he's scraping the ice off his windshield.
--> '''Roger''': I can't believe it ''[censored curse word]''-ing snowed last night.
** "I said open the ''[censored curse word]''-ing door!" - Paige yelling at Jason to get out of the bathroom, unaware that he's used a tree branch to lock the door from outside the house and is currently at the table eating breakfast.
