* ForTheEvulz: It's never really explained why the Cougars mercilessly tease and torment Bobby to begin with. The Mud Dogs' teasing of him is at least a little understandable (they're frustrated for having not won a game in more than four years and need somebody on which to take out their misery). But the Cougars and their coach seemingly abuse and torment Bobby for no real reason other than... because they're jerks. Nevermind that Bobby is the guy who's not only keeping them hydrated but probably preventing them from dying of heat stroke during Coach Red's obviously grueling football practices.

* FreudianExcuse: Bobby's interest in water started because Mama Boucher told him his father joined the Peace Corps, got lost in the Sahara Desert and died from dehydration.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Bobby's mother tells him absurd lies about the world, such as the fact that she, not Ben Franklin, invented electricity (never mind the fact that electricity wasn't invented, it was discovered), and that "happiness is from magic rays of sunshine that come down when you're feelin' blue."

** If Coach Red had never fired Bobby from being his team's water boy, he never would have been brought in by the much kinder Coach Klein and figured out how to channel his anger into being a defensive linebacker. The look of shock on Red's face when seeing how many sacks Bobby got in his first game says it all. [[spoiler:The Mud Dogs winning the final game against Red would ultimately prove this tripe.]]

** In his first game, after the Mud Dogs score a touchdown, Bobby tries to get a high-five from his teammates, saying "Slap hands?", but he gets ignored by them. At the Bourbon Bowl, when they finally get a touchdown after being devastated during the first half, Bobby says "Slap hands?", and he gets some high-fives.
