** Stephanie's lab tech has a [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Kitty Pryde (with Lockheed)]] figure, and natters on about the X-Men before Stephanie reveals her powers. (This doubles as a meta-shout out because ABC Family is owned by Disney who now own Marvel, so expect more Marvel references)

** Brother Mike brings up George and Jim being [[LukeCageHeroForHire heroes for hire]].
*** Beyond simply the name drop, it also works well as LukeCage shares similar powers to Jim. One can only wonder George will end up with powers of his own that are similar to Iron Fist.

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Sure, Jim has SuperStrength, Daphne has mind-reading and CompellingVoice, and Stephanie can run fast. But JJ's power is definitely the most versatile. He's learned a language in half a day, identified a species of bacteria without a microscope and solved a ten-year murder case. Not to mention being immune to mind-affecting abilities if he thinks about it hard enough. Furthermore, his ability to ''see physics itself'' has proven rather useful; he's no slouch in a fistfight because of it.

* HollywoodLaw:Teachers aren't allowed to arbitrarily change grades on formal exams from B to F without providing some pretty strong evidence. Doing that and officially entering it into the system (almost certainly without following procedure) is a crime just as serious as hacking. It's like lawyers don't exist or something...

* IdiotBall: A lot of episodes practically hinge on the Powells and their friends suddenly forgetting there's such things as super-powers and other people also have them. Sophia's case is the most egregious as it takes forever for anyone to consider there might be some mind-control powers at work when George acts almost suicidal ("lets eat lobster!" "you're mortally allergic to lobster!") and then Jim goes from "I don't trust Sophie" to "I love Sophie and I'll abandon my family to be with her" after a peck in the cheek.
** Victoria also takes advantage of this, since its the only thing keeping her cover is the Powells forgetting there's a shape-shifter even after discovering there's one interested in them a few episodes prior. Jim doesn't even get suspicious of his best friend shooting him for no reason at all, even though he knew of Jim's resistance, it should at least award a raise of eyebrow, as he already knew there was a shapeshifter. Finally, the very first thing he does when he goes to Stephanie to warn her about a shapeshifter spying on them to try to discover their weakness is tell her his weakness for no reason at all. It turned out that it was actually Victoria, and not Stephanie.

** Also the reasoning JJ used to convince his mom to help save his teacher's life, using an almost-indentical line to Daphne's.
* CompellingVoice: Both Daphne and [[spoiler:Watcher]] develop this power, with different applications: [[spoiler:Watcher]] uses it to erase/change memories, while Daphne uses it to influence decisions. In both cases, the person under their instruction repeats what they are told to do (or forget), but without changing their tone of voice; this lead to an armed mugger saying "I'm gonna put the gun down, and I'm gonna walk away." in the most threatening manner possible.
