Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: Early on, as Molly chooses a dress for her first date with Kirk, her DumbBlonde sister Cathy considers buying a very tacky dress. Later, when Kirk brings Molly to a family gathering, his ex Marnie appears at lunch wearing the same dress.


Added DiffLines:

* DumbBlonde: Molly's sister. She has no tact, shows up at a social event with a see-through shirt, then proceeds to mix the drinks on a tray she's carrying and drinks them herself. She also picks food off the ground and puts it back onto the same tray, after which she offers it to the guests, absent-mindedly informing them the food has been dropped. She also has a taste for clothes like Kirk's ex, which is not flattering at all.


Added DiffLines:

* SurroundedByIdiots: Patty reacts like this to pretty much everyone that happens to act stupid at some point: the complainer on the plane, Molly's sister and Stainer. Also, to Kirk at times.

Boy meets girl. They fall in love. But she's very attractive, while he doesn't consider himself much of a catch -- and neither do his friends, who pick at him for being luckier then they think he deserves. Thus he's scared of losing her, even before her gorgeous ex-boyfriend steps in on the scene and declares that he will do all in his power to get her back.
