* BlondGuysAreEvil: Edda's dad; Edda's would-be seducer; Kiesl; Col. Yancey. Averted with Edda's StraightGay MamaBear dance partner Seth.
** Brunette Women Are Evil: Any brunette women (aside from Juliette outside the classroom) tend to be evil (Isabel, Amos's Portuguese pianist) or rivals (Edda's schoolmate Mary, whom Amos had a crush on). Fernanda Jons, a South American ballet dancer, once made homophobic remarks at [[StraightGay Seth]], although she appears to be foolish rather than evil.



* DisappearedDad: Edda's. [[BlondGuysAreEvil He's blonde]], has a trophy wife, and is despised by Edda and Juliette. Kiesl left after being told that Bill is the better choice.

* [[MotherOfAThousandYoung Father Of A Thousand Young]]: Roger, father of eleven "[[TheStepfordWives Stepford]] [[Film/VillageOfTheDamned Children]]". Seriously, they come in batches of identical blonde twins and triplets and when Seth goes to Roger's place they appear ''en masse'' out of nowhere and just ''stare''.

* FanNickname: "Colonel [[Theatre/{{Othello}} Iago]]" for Col. Yancey.
** Gam-ma, and by extension Gampa for Bill and Kiesl.
** "[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Big Gay]] Seth"; Gay [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] or Ghulk



* [[NamesTheSame Name's]]... [[TheyJustDidntCare Similar Enough]]: [[spoiler: Kiesl is mistakenly given an obituary after a man named K'''ei'''sel dies. This wouldn't be quite so {{egregious}} if their respective names weren't Peter and ''Johannes''.]]



* WriteWhatYouKnow: Brooke really did attend Julliard, though as an oboe player , not a cellist.

* [[OnlySixFaces Only One Voice]]: ''All'' the characters are [[SesquipdalianLoquaciousness exceptionally verbose]]. It makes sense for Juliette to speak like this since she's a professor who routinely thrashes med students verbally [[SadistTeacher and academically]], but it never seemed as though Amos and Edda's Catholic school was quite that posh.

* {{Hatedom}}: A lot on TheComicsCurmudgeon, including how the smug, arrogant Seth is always right, to the point of MartyStu. The bit about [[spoiler: closeted uncle Roger being lectured by situationally-sexual Seth]] didn't win them any fans at Something Awful either.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: In the past, Seth tried to deny his sexuality by being a serial dater. Now he inverts the trope by mentioning his homosexuality seemingly every chance he gets. And [[spoiler: Roger fathered ''eleven children''.]]
** Lately Seth seems to be inverting this thanks to him being unable to resolve his attraction to Fernanda against his stated sexuality and it becoming a case of HaveIMentionedIAmGay considering [[spoiler: he slept with Fernanda('s "art") and seemed to really be fighting the urge to sleep with Edda after she revealed that aside from Amos he was the only man she ever loved]].
