* FanDisservice: When Matt takes his shirt off. What makes it all the more awkward is that he's clearly aware of it. Also Mavis in a very unflattering forward posture wearing tummy-support pantyhose and invisible-bra stickers, with her makeup running.

* IgnoredEpiphany: Mavis realises while talking to Sandra that other people grow up and feel fulfilled while she doesn't, and that she needs to change. Sandra, who hero-worships her, tells her that she's wrong and that everyone really wishes that they were like her. [[spoiler: Mavis then plays this trope tragicomically straight.]]

* KickTheDog: Mavis gives Sandra one of these after Sandra's pep talk:
-->'''Mavis''': You're right, this place blows. Thank you, I needed that. I have to head back to Minneapolis.
-->'''Sandra''': Take me with you!
-->'''Mavis''': Excuse me?
-->'''Sandra''': Take me with you! You know, to the Mini Apple.
[''Mavis looks at her pityingly'']
-->'''Mavis''': ...You're good here.
