** The parents have a right to be concerned when they find out that [[spoiler:a random stranger was posing as a substitute teacher and using their kids as musicians in a concert]], even though their mass berating of Ms. Mullins causes her to have a minor breakdown.



* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Dewey for impersonating Ned, even though the cops were called on him. The kids still come to rock in the after-school program, which allows him to fulfill his dreams while helping them out even though they lost the Battle of the Bands. This is justified in that Ned doesn't press charges against Dewey and leaves Patty.]]

* SaveOurStudents: Played with. The kids didn't really ''need'' saving, but a fair few of them come out happier than they ever were. Lawrence, Freddie and Zack agree that [[spoiler:even though "Mr. S" lied to them and used them for a rock show, their three weeks of "vacation" weren't a waste of time.]]



* SeriousBusiness: Dewey: "One great rock show can change the world."

to:

* SecondPlaceIsForWinners: Sure, Dewey's old band [[spoiler:wins the 20,000 dollar check and first prize, but the kids's parents and Ms. Mullins are blown away by their performance, ensuring that they will continue to rock together, and the audience asks them to come out for an encore song.]]
* SeriousBusiness: Dewey: "One great rock show can change the world."" Freddie even names the trope later on in the climax.



* StepfordSmiler: Ms. Mullins is an arguable inversion as she is forced to act like a strict authority figure when inside she longs to be able to have fun and be funny. She still fits the basic trope, though, as she puts on a face of being together and happy in her job when deep down, she's suffering.

* WhenSheSmiles: Both Zack and Freddie after they realize they can play rock music have gigantic, awed grins on their faces.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: In "You're in the Band," Dewey convinces a nervous Lawrence that he can play the keyboard. Lawrence protests that he can't because he only has classical training, but Dewey has him try out a riff, which he sails through with ease.

Added DiffLines:

* StealthInsult: Dewie telling Ned that he'll "throw [him] and [his] dog a bone" while gesturing to Patty at first sounds like a {{pun}} until you remember that "dog" is also an extremely rude term for an ugly woman.
