* 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.

* [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels Surfer Gang]]: The Sins. ** It's implied by some of the [[FriendToAllChildren bikers with kids]] scenes that this is more of an act than they let on.
