* AxCrazy: so very, very many people on the compound. Lois, Adaleen, Wanda, Roman and company...
Nicki's also no slouch in the coo-coo bananas department when she's pushed, either.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Sarah apparently never considers this regarding her pregnancy (and in Utah, she'd need parental consent anyway), opting to place the child for adoption and then deciding to raise it herself.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Nikki. Well established from the second episode, when she's clearly jealous of Bill and Margene's loud sex, but claims to be upset because it's happening on Barb's day. She goes to confront Bill about it--and ends up bedding him herself! So it's wrong for Bill to go off schedule for Margene, but not for her.

Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) is, by all appearances, a traditional family man. He met his wife Barbara (née Dutton) Henrickson (Jeanne Tripplehorn) in college and has had three children by her: Ben (Douglas Smith), Sarah (Creator/AmandaSeyfried) and Tancy. Though Barb had a close brush with uterine cancer, the two remain HappilyMarried. Bill has started his own business, "Home Plus," a small chain of home-improvement stores, and has made enough to buy the two houses on either side of his own, which he now rents out to single mothers as a charity project. Oh, and, yes, he and his wife are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but in Sandy, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City, that's not really a big deal...

* TheUnfavorite: Nikki, in spades. Her dialogue and backstory makes it's obvious that she grew up as this, being female on the male-dominated compound. Then, we learn Bill took her in not because he'd fallen in love with her, but both to secure a loan from her father, and because Barb's illness left her unable to have more children, meaning that she's this in her own marriage. A good deal of her behavior can be attributed to this.
