* GenreSavvy / MediumAwareness: Annette, which is why she's never too upset. She knows the formula by heart, even if almost everyone has forgotten it.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadGirl: Annette's rival Connie. She spends a good chunk of time trying to steal Frankie - but has no real interest in Frankie. Why? Because she's ''supposed'' to, and it's a way for Annette to re-realize how good she has it with Frankie.
-->'''Annette:''' I've always sort of wanted to be the bad girl...
-->'''Connie:''' Impossible. But I'll tell you something. You sure have wasted an incredible pair of hooters.
