* '''Straight''': Brad Gunther's friends are an ADD-afflicted school girl, 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.

** 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.

* '''Parodied''': 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.

** Brad put in any other situation he'd be the weird guy, but with how the rest of the cast acts, he's the only sane man by default.
