* HeterosexualLifePartners: Seth and Evan, to a ridiculous degree. In fact, one of the themes the film deals with is how co-dependent they are on each other and how they're gonna have to learn to function without each other when they go do college. [[spoiler:Then of course, there are the implications that Seth might not be as heterosexual as he professes, and that his feelings for Evan might not be entirely platonic in nature.]]

* EverybodyKnewAlready: Both cops are already fully aware that [="McLovin"=] isn't Fogel's real name, but they're playing along to try and show him that not all police officers are heartless jerks.

** The Ego- Fogel/ Mclovin- He is a mix of both, he's still shy and soft spoken most of the time but when he gets comfortable, he gets excited. For example he shoots the gun at the car and is startled naturally but once he finds out he can do it, he does it *Gangsta Style* shooting all the bullets.

* CellPhonesAreUseless: PlayedForLaughs when Becca calls Evan but they have a bad connection, so all she can hear is him [[ClusterFBomb cursing in frustration at his phone]], thinking he's talking to her.

* NoPeriodsPeriod: Someone points out a red spot on Seth's pant legs. Seth is confused about where it came from until someone else asks "Dude, were you dancing with a chick in there?". Indeed he had been, and hilarity ensues.

* MinorWithFakeID: Fogel gets a crappy fake ID that just says "[=McLovin=] to buy liquor for the party. Inexplicably, it works, but the store is robbed just as he's about to pay and he has to give a statement to the police, which Seth and Evan mistake for getting busted.



* NoodleIncident: We never find out exactly what "non-violent crime" Francis committed, or what sort of people his "friends" are, or why he wasn't welcome at the party. It's kind of implied that he's a pedophile.
** Another one of the noodle incidents in the movie is when Seth tells Greg to piss his pants again, in which Greg replies that that was eight years ago. We don't know what exactly happened and why he wet himself.
