* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling:
** Even after outgrowing her AnnoyingYoungerSibling tendencies, Ramona is still the wilder, more impulsive and more imaginative sister than Beezus ever was.
** Not shown on-screen, but this is how Mrs. Quimby describes her childhood relationship with her younger sister, Bea. Dorothy was the homely, sensible sibling who diligently saves up her allowance, while Beatrice was the active, outdoorsy type who spends all her pocket money on junk the moment she gets them.

* CompressedVice: Mr. Quimby has a smoking problem in ''Ramona and her Father''. He never seemed to have that problem before, but Ramona hadn't really thought about it before. It got brought up when Beezus angrily asked why he could afford to smoke when the family couldn't afford decent food for the cat.

** Willa Jean to Howie, for similar reasons as Ramona: noisy and attention-seeking. In the later books, Ramona bristles at any suggestion - especially by Beezus - that she was once just like Willa Jean.

* EndangeredSouffle: A variant; during Beezus's birthday in ''Beezus and Ramona'', she gets upset when Ramona ruins two of her birthday cakes. The first time, Ramona as an experiment shoves a dozen eggs, shells and all, into the batter and starts the electric mixer. To distract her while Mother bakes the second cake, Beezus reads "Hansel and Gretel" to Ramona; when Ramona pretends to be Hansel, spilling cracker crumbs on the rug, Beezus suggests that she pretends to be Gretel instead. Ramona then shoves her doll into the oven while the cake is baking, pretending to push the witch in to get baked. The rubber and plastic ruin the cake, so that Mother asks Aunt Beatrice to buy one from the store.



* EpicFail: According to Ramona, the letter Q written in cursive. It just looks like a sloppily written number 2.

* ShipTease: Beezus and Henry being appointed to play as Mary and Joseph for a church play in "Ramona and her Father" may count. Especially with Beezus acting all shy to be playing Henry's partner, and Henry himself actually agreeing to the role, as Ramona expected him to be too busy to bother with such things. It never goes anywhere, though, since Henry has all but [[ChuckCunninghamSyndromedisappeared from the plot]] since.
