* OutOfGenreExperience: After getting slapped by Ling Ling for seemingly inexplicable reasons (at least to Narutaki), Narutaki angrily hurls his cup of coffee against the wall, only for it to bounce around like a superball instead of shattering on impact. He then opens a window to let it out, only to have it [[spoiler: circle the ''ENTIRE EARTH'', come back, ''RING THE DOORBELL'', and force itself down his throat,]] which he then coughs up. Even for a slapstick moment, this is way out of left field. Ling Ling has a similar moment with a hairbrush, [[GenreSavvy which ceases its rebounding upon coming bristle-to-face with an angry Ling Ling,]] [[EverythingTalks even ''APOLOGIZING VOCALLY'' for "causing trouble".]]

* VictoryPose: All the time. In particular is when Goriki (finally) places a pastry on his tray without it getting squashed. He is then summarily charged hundreds of times for the one pastry he succeeded in getting, as well as all the failures. Cue HeroicBSOD.
