** Though as that particular storyline took place in January 2013 and she hasn't been seen since, it has been a SubvertedTrope thus far. Only time will tell if it remains that way.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Brad's first crush, Diane, puts him through the wringer over and over, and then vanishes without a trace after it's revealed she hooked up with Aaron Hill, and she hasn't been mentioned in nearly a decade. Unlikely to come back now that new girl Toni is in the picture.

** Gunther got a further (inadvertent) makeover courtesy of a group of senior citizen ladies touring Peru by bus, the result of which was ditching the button-down shirts for sweatshirts and [[PermaStubble facial stubble]]. The cast's females approve, especially Tiffany.

She has [[DadTheVeteran typical]] [[{{Housewife}} parents]], a lazy, annoying older brother named Brad, and her best friends [[{{Nerd}} Bernice]] and [[BlackBestFriend Delta]]. Her main rival is Tiffany the cheerleader, and the men in her life are nerdy Gunther and handsome Aaron Hill (and his {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s).

** Crystal and Tiffany's friendship consists mainly of Crystal making sarcastic and/or insulting comments in response to whatever Tiffany is talking about at the moment. To be fair though, Tiffany seems to use Crystal [[ItsAllAboutMe only as a sounding board for her own problems, never once showing interest in what may be happening in her best friend's life.]]

* AllTakeAndNoGive / TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity: Toni Daytona's brother Jonah treats her as an on-call free daycare, to the point of demanding that she reschedule any commitments that might prevent her from watching Shannon. When Toni finally tried to refuse, stating that Jonah needed to take some responsibility for his own life, he replied that he would have an easier time doing so [[WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately if he had ever received any help from her]]. It's not limited to his own family members either: upon meeting Nancy (and finding out that her son was engaged to Toni), he ''immediately'' left Shannon with her and hightailed it out the door with the excuse that "Toni will pick her up in a few hours."

* Burger Fool: Brad is this not once but twice with a job at Weenie World. The second time, he has to deal with Ann Eiffel as his boss after being laid-off from his career as a firefighter. This is soon averted when Brad returns to the station and his best friend T.J. takes his place and makes Ann Eiffel's life a living hell by being much better at the job than her.

* CheshireCatGrin: TJ's default expression. The near-permanent grin indicates his shifty HighSchoolHustler nature, and it takes a ''lot'' to wipe it off his face.

* ToxicFriendInfluence: TJ fulfills this role with Brad. He has gotten Brad into trouble with his borderline illegal schemes and other inappropriate behavior. However, he has done other things that were nice, and it's been implied he has ParentalAbandonment issues... doesn't justify the borderline illegal schemes, though. Though Brad won't hear a word against him.

* OnlyFriend: TJ is Brad's, and vice-versa.

to:

* OnlyFriend: TJ is Brad's, and vice-versa. Mostly because nobody else in the strip (other than 6-year-old Shannon) likes TJ, but him and Brad are inseparable and nobody wants to befriend Brad if it means having to put up with TJ as well.
