** Played InUniverse in ''The Swearing Archer and the association'' (playable for free [[http://www.zap.ca/webdefait/sportsmed.html here]]). The characters spend more time accusing each other of mangling up words than actual negotiation.

** The Track Meet gets a bonus in-universe. The coach suspends a few players on the team because their grades have slipped, and then follows it up by saying that this isn't meant to be a punishment, but an incentive for players to find a balance between athletics and academics. If you say so, coach, but if it were about ''balance'', there would be a minimum achievement on the track team to make you eligible to participate in classes. The students get suspended from the team because getting poor grades breaks the code of conduct, so yes, it ''is'' a punishment.

*** They try to explain off the the above example by saying that Ted was under the effects of a drug that made him unstable, however Ted never expresses any real remorse for the action (infact he tries to justify it). Later with his 'sane' state of mind, he makes you help him while holding you at gunpoint saying he has nothing to lose.

* NeverMyFault: {{Inverted|Trope}} as, most likely due to bad programming, the majority of the issues you have to deal with on Tuesday and Wednesday are the other students blaming you for everything regardless of if you had anything to do with it. It's especially notable on Tuesday: there are about three different plot threads starting up at the beginning, you only have time to get involved with one of them before the bell rings, yet the game assumes that you both got involved with all of them ''and'' picked the meanest options available. Most notably, if you didn't get involved with the humiliating video plotline, or if you said you weren't sure whether the video should be posted or not, then everyone blames you for the whole thing, even specifically claiming you said you thought it'd be funny. The only way not to get blamed is to specifically order Tony to delete the video (in which case he posts it anyway just to spite everyone else).

** BrokenAesop: It ''says'' mice don't talk and the stripper isn't real, but the cop calls you a pervert when he drags you out of the room, implying that he can see her too. It's a little weird that of all the characters in the game, the boss is the only one who ''doesn't'' see a woman taking off her clothes.

* PlotHole: The timeline goes like this: Ted is arrested after his suicide bombing attempt, is psychoanalyzed by Angie and denounced as delusional, escapes from prison [[spoiler: so that he can be framed for Angie's murder that night]], goes home and eats a forty-pound pizza, falls asleep, wakes up with a bomb around his waist, and immediately rushes to attempt the suicide bombing that will get him arrested and declared insane ''by Angie, who is somehow still alive''. It's like a StableTimeLoop without time travel being involved.

*** Added to this is the fact that your first two encounters in the game are with your history teacher and your coach, and you can be up front with them about your problems balancing your schoolwork and your track obligations, but neither one of them will actually acknowledge anything you're saying. The history teacher not-so-subtly accuses you of lying about the demanding practice schedule (even when the dialogue option notes that this is true) and the coach rejects your "apologies and excuses" because you were late (and you're late because your teacher stopped you in the hall to talk) without actually bothering to process what you've said. This is less a game about sports ethics, and more a game about how much it sucks to be a kid under pressure to be perfect when the adults in your life ignore you until you start having trouble living up to their demands, and their only solutions are lectures and punishments.

** From ''Sir Basil Pike Public School'': Bullying is wrong...except for when you physically assault people whom you mistakenly believe stole from you, mock them for their handicaps when they try and defend themselves, and refuse to apologize when the truth is discovered and the situation resolved. In which case, you're just being assertive.

In which case, you're just being assertive. (Of course, that only applies if you're a ''boy''. As a girl, the other girls are very quick to point out when you're being horrible.)

** In episode 6 (The Suspects), you can interview Angie's neighbors, who tell the player that both her parents died in a car accident. Later on, you can interview Yale, who calls her "Dr. Killup". When asked about the name, Yale reveals it's Angie's maiden name, which she changed due to having an estranged relationship with her father, who is suddenly still alive and lives in Florida as a pensioner.

* YouKnowWhoSaidThat: When Bridget is attempting to refute the facts linking her to Angie's murder, she says "facts are the enemy of truth" and then quotes this trope verbatim. Ironically, the context of the quote is the opposite of what Bridget intended (it was said by a delusional man arguing that his delusions are real in spite of the facts, Bridget is using it to imply that there is more to the story than the facts show), and even worse it wasn't even said by who she thinks it was (she attributes it to Miguel de Cervantes, from his work ''Literature/DonQuixote'', it's actually from ''Theatre/ManOfLaMancha'', Dale Wasserman's play based on Cervantes' book; Wasserman's name isn't even an option to answer her question with).
