* GreaserDelinquents



* NonIndicativeName: There is no teenaged strangler, nor does the strangler kill teenagers. Likely intentional, not just to cash in on the "Teenage X" genre, but as a RedHerring (Would you look at anyone other than [[spoiler:the janitor]] if you weren't looking specifically for a teenager?)

* DullSurprise: A cop tells a woman that her neighbor has been murdered. Her "Oh, no!" is about as flat and lifeless as you possibly can get for ''any'' sort of response, let alone hearing ''your neighbor has been violently murdered''.

* ThereAreNoTherapists: [[{{Justified}} That's okay, though,]] as apparently there's no such thing as grief or psychological trauma, either. Tony's girlfriend is killed, and he just goes to school the next day no problem. Betty is nearly murdered and her attacker is shot dead in front of her, but give her 24 hours and she'll be back at the malt shop shakin' her groove thang to possibly the worst song ever recorded.
