Added DiffLines:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: The 1st film has Nick, Toula's younger brother, who is immature but he has a tight relationship with Toula and she is more annoyed with Athena, her older sister, than not. The second film has Paris's younger cousins serving this role when they aren't acting like mini versions of Gus.
** Nikki and Angelo act antagonistic towards one another, except [[spoiler: when Angelo finally comes out as gay and with his partner]].


Added DiffLines:

* CoolBigSis: Toula serves as this role to Nick, inspiring him to take college courses in art, before that they always had a close relationship.


Added DiffLines:

* NoTrueScotsman: Gus's brother in the second film, lambasts him for moving to America and says that proves he isn't "a real Greek".


Added DiffLines:

* ParentalHypocrisy: A running theme in the second film.
** Toula moans "Why do you want to leave me?" when Paris tells the family she wants to head to college out of state, a callback to when Toula told Gus that she wanted to take college courses.
** [[spoiler: At the wedding in the second film]], Maria asks "Who said that a woman has to be married?" and Toula yells "You! All our lives!" with her older sister Athena nodding in agreement and annoyance.

** It's hinted that Toula's brother Nick (who apparently wants to study art) has similar issues. His beautifully designed menus are dismissed with an "enh" by Gus. While he seems to have grown on Ian by the end of the movie, in the sequel he makes it pretty clear while he likes Ian he still is disappointed he's not Greek and is already trying to find a Greek husband for his grandaughter, Paris who is 17.
