* CallingParentsByTheirName: Curly Sue explains why she calls her father Bill: "Well...If I'm in a crowded place and I yell...'Dad!' 50 guys would turn around. If I yell 'Bill!' maybe two will turn around. It's a timesaver, really."

Added DiffLines:

* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: The social worker who apprehends Curly Sue gives the impression of being cold and methodical as opposed to the destitute but fatherly Bill; the home she is placed in appears to be a similarly cold, emotionless place and they also cut Sue's hair there.


Added DiffLines:

* SheCleansUpNicely: Subverted. Sue appears out of character and somewhat uncomfortable in the cute clothes Grey buys her. Bill also feels out of place in his new suit.

* TraumaticHaircut: At some point while in the custody of the child welfare authorities, Sue's trademark very long, curly hair is cut to about shoulder-length, which seems to also make it look poofier. "They cut my hair" are the first words out of her mouth when Grey comes for her.
