* {{Jerkass Has a Point}}: Seriously, Donald may be a prick, but wouldn't you be pissed too if your own kids locked you in a basement ''for days?'' He has every right to be angry and want to sue!
* {{Jerkass with a Heart of Gold}}: What TJ turns into.
* {{Laser Guided Karma}}: Averted. The kids end up in juvie, not even ''prison'' although they locked their parents in the basement and threatened not to feed them until they got along. Yes, T.J's family which consists of two lawyers definitely helped, but the kids got off with an ''extremely'' light sentence and none of them were tried as adults!
