Added DiffLines:

** While not exactly a younger sibling, Gabby sometimes treats Hector this way. The book "Disappearing Act" has her mentally comment that because [[HeroWorship Hector thinks so highly of Alex]], she's always arguing two people instead of one.


Added DiffLines:

* KnowsAGuyWhoKnowsAGuy: In the book "Disappearing Act", this pops up twice in discussions about how people are distantly connected to the Russian throne. Lampshaded both times.
** Example A
--> Vladimir: "How do you know?"..."No one besides our family knows that Alexis is the descendant of the third cousin once removed of the second cousin of Nicolas II."
--> Gaby: (to herself) The what of the who of the which?
** Example B
--> Alexis: "Leo Kropotkin-phooey!"..."He is only the descendant of the fourth cousin ''twice'' removed of the czar's great-aunt. Big deal!"
--> Gaby: (to Tina) "I'm not getting any of this stuff."
--> Tina: (with a giggle) [[JustForPun "It's all relative."]]

** A general one that was present in the TV show but cropped up ''a lot'' in the books: your child will get kidnapped and/or locked up in a location no one but their attacker knows about and may be unable to summon help ALA an incident in the books where a blindfolded and bound Hector who the crook abandons in the middle of a forest tries to write a message but barely manages anything readable and it's only luck that the rest of the team figures it out.



* BigNo: Gabby, in "Four Days of the Cockatoo", after hearing that Audubon Poulet and Honey Hawke about to peform taxidermy on her palm cockatoo, Calypso.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Ghostwriter moves and rearranges existing letters to communicate. The team frequently has to guess at the gaps in his messages. And then in ''Who Is Max Mouse?'', [[HauntedTechnology he possesses a computer]], and in addition to [[TelephoneTeleport surfing the 'Net]], he ''gains the ability to write complete sentences '''at will'''''. Guess how many more times this comes up in the series.
