* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Wondered by both maids about the GoldDigger dating the Father, not that the Father is ugly, but he's usually a Regular Joe and isn't very witty or "one of those charm fellows", think [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Leonard Hofstadder]] if he was a wealthy rancher.



* WarpThatAesop: Children of divorced parents can, through hilarious hijinx, remind their parents that they love each other and get them back together. Therefore, you children of divorced parents out there in the audience, if your parents remain divorced, it's ''your fault for not trying hard enough to get them back together.''

* CountryMouse, CityMouse: Hallie is the Country Mouse coming from a vast vineyard in Northern California while Annie is the City Mouse coming from downtown London. Played with, though, in that Annie adjusts very well to camping in the forest.

* CountryMouse, CityMouse: Hallie is the Country Mouse coming from a vast vineyard in Northern California while Annie is the City Mouse coming from downtown London. Played with, though, in that Annie adjusts very well to camping in the forest. Meredith however is a much straighter City Mouse, coming directly from San Francisco.



* IntimateOpenShirt: Meredith suggests Nick wear his shirt with three buttons undone.
--> "I like it when I can see a little chest hair" *Cue* {{Sexophone}}.



* ParentalSubstitute: Chessie acted like a second mother for Hallie and Martine acted like a father to Annie. Makes sense seeing as how they were certain that the girls would never meet their other parent.

* ShutUpKiss
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: One of the first signs that something is funny about them is the fact that both of them like to eat Oreos topped with peanut butter, which everybody else seems to find disgusting for some odd reason; (try dipping Oreos in peanut butter yourself; they actually go quite nicely together. Yum!)

Added DiffLines:

* TheTalk: Meredith tries to give it to Annie!Hallie, but she's more knowledgeable about it than she realises.


Added DiffLines:

* WiseBeyondHerYears: Annie is definitely more savvy than her eleven years would lead one to believe. She guesses right away that Meredith is a GoldDigger.
* WritersCannotDoMath: The summer camp the girls go to lasts eight weeks, and the post-camp portions of the film probably take up about two weeks at least. British summer holidays usually don't last that long, meaning Annie should be back at school.

Added DiffLines:

* LampshadeHanging: The last line of dialogue in the film is Hallie exclaiming, "I can't believe we actually did it!"

Added DiffLines:

* GrayRainOfDepression: When it looks like the plan has failed and the two families part, it's pouring down rain in California when Elizabeth and Annie leave and in London when they arrive.

Added DiffLines:

* TheTalk: The first movie has Maggie cancel a very important meeting with the Red Cross because she's afraid her daughter might want to have sex and takes her for a picnic to have that woman-to-woman talks. Meredith gives one to Annie (as Hallie), albeit about using sex appeal.
