** Everyone but Brad has genuine psychiatric disorders; the schoolgirl has dissociative identity disorder, the nerd behaves like a shell shocked Vietnam veteran (complete with references to being in 'nam, despite obviously being far too young for that), the musclebound twit speaks to the voices in his head, and the beauty queen is under the impression that the demons going around stabbing everyone "just need a hug". Brad only stays with them because he's in school to become a psychiatrist and thinks its good practice.

* '''Straight''': Brad Gunther's friends are an [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny ADD-afflicted]] school girl, [[MadScientist a nerd dealing in haphazard experiments]], a [[DumbMuscle muscle-bound twit]], and [[AlphaBitch a loud, boisterous teenage beauty queen]]. All the while, he's the only one who seems to notice their antics are a little off-kilter.
* '''Exaggerated''': The school-girl is a FunnyForeigner Martian, the nerd's trying to summon demons, the twit races cars ''on foot'' on a daily basis, and the beauty queen talks to animals. All the while, Brad's the only one who notices that they're off-kilter.

Added DiffLines:

** Brad considers himself the OnlySaneMan because he makes no attempt to understand his friends, and rarely even interacts with them aside from insulting their hobbies and rolling his eyes at them sarcastically. They soon stop hanging out with him.

** Brad looks like the only morally decent person with a lick of sense. But he's not, he acts like he's the normal one. But he's really a ManipulativeBastard who only hangs out with them to exploit their unusual weaknesses for his own personal gain.



** Alternatively, after some [[ContemplateOurNavels navel contemplation]] and {{wangst}}, Brad realizes just how [[ThePowerOfFriendship important]] his group is, as strange as they are.
