* AnAesop: Rudy is subjected to one in episode 3.6, when he finally learns to stop mistreating women through his constant one-night stands, or as he puts it "living for himself." Hilariously, he goes on about how he's a better person and how "[[Film/HighSchoolMusical we're all in this together]]" right up until his other self walks in, having been forced to spend a night in the cells thanks to Rudy forgetting about him.



* AntiVillain: So far the bad guys they have come across-[[spoiler: Lucy, Sally and Tony]]-have been fairly sympathetic in their own way, and not just evil for evil's sake. Again, a major aspect of the third season finale.
** {{Averted}} with Brian, who admits up front, quite gleefully, he's killing "shitloads of people" so he can get attention again.

** [[spoiler: Curtis, the last person from the original cast still around, dies in Season 4. Fittingly enough, considering he was one of the more level headed of the original group he did it to prevent himself from hurting anyone, due to becoming a flesh eating zombie.]] Poor [[{{Tearjerker}} Rudy broke down in tears...]]
