** PlayedForLaughs with the story of John, Great-Uncle Louis, and the fiddleheads. The doctor who patches the two up at the end concludes that the moral of the story is [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop that it's best not to do things for your health]].



* BlackComedy: The story about Sally, John, and Edward accompanying Mad Maud hunting. Maud begins to act increasingly creepy and strange, telling terrifying stories about people getting killed by cougars. She then starts shooting small woodland creatures, apparently thinking they're cougars, and finally shoots ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice the postman]]''. [[RefudgeInAudacity And seems genuinely unaware that she's the reason he's bleeding]]. Fortunately he's more shaken than injured.

** Hattie is viewed as something like this by Sally and her siblings, after she starts recovering from her past traumas and tells Great-Uncle Louis just what she thinks of him (namely that he's an old windbag and "less of a man and more of an excuse to hold up a mustache").
* CoolOldLady: Aunt Sally, John, and Edward think Mad Maud is this at first, impressed by her record of cougar hunting. They quickly change their minds when they realize just how crazy she is.



* DysfunctionalFamily: Aunt Sally's generation has become very dysfunctional after [[spoiler: she and her siblings ditch Robbie on the beach with 'the trolls']]
