** Alice, Bob, and Carol all prefer mint and ''milk'' chocolate chip ice cream -- while Dennis prefers mint and ''dark'' chocolate chip ice cream. The others try to make Dennis feel as if he committed the worst act of blasphemy.

* '''Averted''': Even though Dennis disagrees with Alice, Bob, and Carol over chocolate versus vanilla, Dennis is never hassled for disagreeing with the others. It's just [[TrademarkFavouriteFood a character trait]] used to subtly mark him out as [[SixthRanger "the outsider"]].

* '''Exploited''': Dennis uses this trope for ReversePsychology, manipulating the group to think that one course of action is favoured by everyone else and then bitterly complaining about it, thus making them all set on doing exactly that.

* '''Reconstructed''': Dennis is a CommanderContrarian, and while the group doesn't mind people disagreeing, they just ignore him because he seems to do it ''all the time'' just to get attention. (This may be further deconstructed if it ends up with a CryingWolf aesop)

** Alice, Bob, and Carol understand that not everyone agrees with what people likes, so while they still resent Dennis' personal preference, they agree not to judge him ever again.

* '''Inverted''':
** PeerPressureMakesYouEvil -- Dennis' concession to groupthink is the first step onto the slippery slope that leads to... [[DrugsAreBad DRUGS!]]
** BlitheSpirit -- it takes Dennis stalwartly standing up to peer pressure to make the group realise that, hey, they've always wanted to try some of the other flavours.

* '''Deconstructed''':
** Due to Alice, Bob, and Carol's inability to accept Dennis' preference for vanilla, Dennis leaves the group, and gives everyone the silent treatment. When they go back to their day job, their inability to constructively disagree with one another harms business, and they decide WeWantOurJerkBack.
** Dennis develops very low self-esteem -- because, no matter which opinion he expresses, he is made to feel as if he is in the minority (and, therefore, wrong). He becomes convinced that the reason why he always seems to hold the minority opinion is because he's "dumb", and it doesn't help that various people ''have'' actually called him "dumb" just for disagreeing with the majority.
** Dennis is forced to go along with the gang against deeply held personal beliefs: For example, Dennis doesn't eat chocolate because he's a Mormon who believes in abstaining from caffeine.
** Dennis, who is allergic to chocolate, is pressured into eating it. The rest of the episode revolves around Dennis recovering from an allergic reaction to chocolate.
** Alice, Bob, and Carol finally understand how Dennis feels -- when they are forced to agree on pizza toppings.

* '''Discussed''': Dennis' friend Eva says, "What on earth makes you hang out with [[AlphaBitch Alice]]'s entourage? Tell me, are you actually ''allowed'' to have your own personality in that group? I bet they even order the same flavour ice cream..."

* '''Played For Drama''': The gang is in a situation where strong group integrity really ''is'' more important than making the absolute best decision. For example, Alice is TheCaptain of TheSquad and Dennis second-guessing her orders is compromising morale. Bob is forced to learn this lesson the hard way when he puts his squadmates in real danger.

** Dennis is forced to go along with the gang against deeply held personal beliefs: For example, forced to attend a birthday party -- which is expressly forbidden by the Jehovah's Witness religion, which Dennis belongs to.
