* ElephantsChild: At one point Buck asks Miles indulges in a motormouth spree of questions about Buck the instant he arrives, culminating in Buck asking him what his record is for consecutive questions asked is.
asked; Miles replies ''thirty-eight''.
* EmotionlessGirl: Again, Tia.Tia presents herself at this, and talks to everyone in an overly aloof tone, but isn't above being overly petty with her younger siblings, mouthing off at her mother and Buck, and clearly being frustrated at leaving her life in Indianapolis behind. Despite this, it's still daunting to see her break down when Buck finds her late in the film.

** [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Not so averted]] in Tia's case. The film never comes right out and says it, but it's heavily [[ImpliedTrope implied]] that Bug did the same thing to her and then tossed her aside like so much garbage.]]

* RecycledTheSeries : A short-lived TV version aired on Creator/{{CBS}} in 1990, in which Buck (played by Kevin Meaney) gets full custody of the kids after their parents die in a car accident (though you wouldn't know it with how [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgnbNZsi-UE happy]] they all look).



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A remake was said to be in the works starring Dan Fogler as Buck, though news of that vanished.
** Rumor also had it for a while that the 1991 comedy ''Dutch'' (also written by John Hughes) was originally penned as a possible sequel draft. It's never been officially confirmed, though the protagonists of both films are very similar.

The titular character in this Creator/JohnHughes picture is Buck Russell, a fun-loving, unemployed slob with CommitmentIssues. When his sister-in-law's father has a heart attack, he is [[JumpedAtTheCall called on]] to watch his brother's children, including teenage DeadpanSnarker Tia. HilarityEnsues.
