* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:For all main characters. Slade's nephew argues that he was a mean-spirited person who deserved to be blinded by an accident he caused himself. As Charlie has endured his arrogance and saved him from suicide, Frank saves him at the hearing. The corrupt Trask is HoistByHisOwnPetard twice in front of all his students; in the prank, and at the hearing. George rats out his mates for a bribe, but gets nothing in return. While Harry, Jimmy, and Trent don't get caught specifically, they get probation for pulling the prank, and you can tell the Dean is gonna do everything in his power to make their lives utter Hell from now on. Also, Frank says "[[PrecisionFStrike fuck you too]]" for not turning themselves in once their buddies got threatened]].

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Mrs. Hunsacker and the joint faculty-student disciplinary board. [[spoiler:While Mr. Trask was unmoved by the Colonel's speech, the group listened intently and within thirty seconds of the Colonel finishing, grouped together on the stage, deliberated, and made their judgement punishing those suspected of the initial prank, denying George Jr of any rewards for snitching, and excusing Charlie from any further inquiries about this topic]].

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Frank starts ''way'' too off the cynical side, but by the end of the film he starts to side with Charlie's idealism. Charlie gains some cynicism too (mostly enough to start acting on his desires, rather than wait for shit to fall into his lap.)

** Frank shrugs off the insensitive comments about his life and actions that left him blind and [[spoiler:one of his buddies dead]] from his nephew when he crashes his brother's Thanksgiving dinner with Charlie. But he completely loses it when his nephew unnecessarily insults Charlie.

--> '''Charlie:''' Pull the trigger you miserable blind motherfucker!!!
* HandicappedBadass: Let it be said the colonel is blind. Not disabled. He can dance the tango and if one is within an arm's reach, he can throw said person into the wall and choke the person with little effort.

Hired by the colonel's niece to help him while she and her husband and children get away for Thanksgiving, Charlie is told it will be an easy job. It isn't. The colonel, unbeknownst to his niece, is planning a trip to NewYorkCity and is dragging Charlie along with him. Hijinks and drama ensues as the Colonel is staring down his own dark path and past filled with many regrets and a young Charlie burdened by a choice lingering back at his school: to snitch on some students or not.

* SadistTeacher: The Dean shows signs of sadism. [[spoiler:He actively intends to reward George, the snitch who sells out his friends, for doing so, not punish those George identified because it was such a vague answer, and has the nerve to talk about the school's morals and integrity and how it develops character, and how Charlie has betrayed those aspects of the establishment. Frank, by contrast, argues that he doesn't know if Charlie is right by not speaking up, but declares that it actively displays those values the school holds dear, because Charlie won't sell someone out for himself]].

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: The logic which the three pranksmen follow and which they think will save them. Col. Slade even lampshades this is how these boys will roll.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Frank Slade starts ''way'' too off the cynical side, but by the end of the film he starts to side with Charlie's idealism.
** Notable that Charlie gains a bit more cynicism too (mostly enough to start ACTING on his desires, rather than just waiting for shit to fall in his lap.)

* BadassGrandpa: Lt. Col. Frank Slade is a tough, no non-sense man who can still put an insensitive dick into a Ranger choke hold, dance a tango perfectly, and will defend the integrity of others.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: George Willis Jr. appears affable yet somewhat dim to everyone, but it appears to be an act -- he's rather devious and is willing to sell out anyone. He immediately begins grooming Charlie to take the fall for everyone. Without Charlie's holiday experiences with The Colonel, he probably would have succeeded, too.
