* TheAlcoholic: Rhona's mother.
* AlphaBitch: Rhona. Not all the time, but mostly.
* AttemptedRape: Libby interrupts a date of Becca's getting too frisky with her. In another episode, one of Becca's teachers tries to force himself on Paige during a date.



* BrainyBrunette: Becca.
* ConvenientMiscarriage: Paige discovers that she's pregnant just as her husband resurfaces and wants another chance. She's considering it when he tells her that he doesn't want the baby. This and the miscarriage put the nail in the coffin of their marriage.



* DeadpanSnarker (Becca)

to:

* DeadpanSnarker (Becca)DeadpanSnarker: Becca. Corky had a few moments himself.
---> '''Becca''': Why don't you take a look in the mirror, dogface?
---> '''Corky''': I would, but you [[MirrorCrackingUgly cracked it]]!
* DerailingLoveInterests: Inverted. After years of pining away for Tyler, Becca finally gets him. . . and it's ''she'' who suddenly turns into a bitch who treats him horribly because she's falling for Jesse.
* DistantFinale: The first episode of the finale season has 40-something Becca wandering through her childhood home, and the final episode shows her married with a son, named [[DeadGuyJunior Jesse]].
* FantasySequence: Occasionally.


Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: Supposed JerkJock Tyler has a brother with Down's Syndrome, thus explaining why he's nice to Corky. Meanwhile, Rhona's mother is an alcoholic, thus explaining a lot of her bitchy behavior.


Added DiffLines:

* LawOfInverseFertility: Libby assumes she's beginning menopause, but she's pregnant.


Added DiffLines:

* ParentalMarriageVeto: Corky and Amanda's parents try to interfere in their marriage plans, with her parents outright taking them to court to get the marriage annulled after the two elope.
* PostRobberyTrauma: The whole family is on edge after they're robbed, with Drew buying a gun and Corky almost shooting a friend of Paige's with it--he didn't know him and thought he was the burglar.


Added DiffLines:

* RunawayBride: At the altar, Paige asks her fiance if he really loves her. He swears that he does, but admits that they're not right for each other. With his blessing, she goes dashing down the aisle to reunite with her true love. . .
** Then in the next season, it's revealed that she pulled this trope ''again'' by running out on the other guy when [[RealityEnsues reality ensued]]--they had no plan for anything, leading them to fight constantly and eventually split.


Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedVirgin: Becca prepares for a romantic evening with Tyler. . .and he confesses, "I've never done this before." She's shocked, as she and apparently everyone in their school had assumed that he and his previous girlfriend were having sex, especially given their JerkJock[=/=]AlphaBitch personalities.
