* BadassBiker: The kids hire one to intimidate Payne. He's tall, beefy, leather-clad, and bald; what little hair he does have appears to be ''tattooed on''.

* FreudianExcuse:Payne tells Tiger his version of "The Little Engine that Could", and we understand why he is the way he is because his friend was nearly killed when they outnumbered by the enemy during a battle. Even worse: Emily (who is also the guidance counselor) says she'd like to talk to Payne about his story.

* WrongGenreSavvy: When asking his Cadets if they would bother to complain about how slippery conditions were if it was a life and death situation during a drill on an obstacle course on a very rainy day, Payne got the response from Stone that it was not one. Payne's response: Take out a grenade and pull the pin, saying that it was now. Predictably, the Cadets panic and run, VERY FAST, with the exception of Stone, who was yelling after them for being idiots and not seeing it was just a Dummy Grenade. It was a reasonable assumption, considering that fake grenades are fairly common tools in drills. However, as evidenced by the downed tree that Payne threw the grenade at, Stone underestimated just how crazy Payne could be.
