* ChekhovsGun: Which doubles as sort of a BlackComedy BrickJoke. Medea tells Lisa a story about how she handled a person that was similar to Carlos by scolding him with a pot of hot grits and beating him while he was in pain. You think she was just exaggerating as usual. [[spoiler: But near the end of the movie, when Carlos comes to Medea's home to reclaim Lisa and Medea heads out to give them privacy, she reminds Lisa of said story and motions to the pot on the stove. Take a wild guess what happens next?]]

* AbusiveParents: Victoria is emotionally abusive to both her daughters even though they're now adults. She makes it perfectly clear to Vanessa's face that she thinks her children are bastards and wishes she never gave birth to her, and keeps Lisa wrapped around her finger so she can use her trust fund. [[spoiler: There's also the fact that she let Lisa's father rape Vanessa with a clear conscience.]]
** The way Madea handles her foster kid veers into this territory.



* BeenThereShapedHistory: Parodied when Madea tells the wedding planner "I shot Tupac!" and then mentions she's referring to a separate incident other than the performer's death.
* BrokenBird: Vanessa, and she is trying very hard to overcome it. [[spoiler: She eventually does.]]
** Victoria herself has been broken since her junky mother sold her for "ten dollars and a fix."



* DirtyOldMan: Joe, Madea's brother
* DomesticAbuser: Carlos, Lisa's fiance

* RichBitch: Victoria, or more rather, she has the "Bitch" part down pat but for "Rich?" She's pretty much broke and has been draining the trust fund Lisa's father set up for her to maintain her wealthy image, which is why she's been trying to make sure Lisa marries Carlos.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Vanessa and FrankieFrankie.


Added DiffLines:

* WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou: Invoked by Victoria, who tells Lisa to simply stop doing whatever it is she does that makes Carlos hit her when Lisa tells her Carlos has been abusing her. This is during the first few minutes of the film and acts as Victoria's EstablishingCharacterMoment when immediately after Victoria orders her lunch as if Lisa just commented on the passing weather.
