Added DiffLines:

* [[BigBrotherBully Big Sister Bully]]: While Charlie and Bailey are both prone to their fair share of JerkWithAHeartOfGold tendencies throughout the entire series, Julia has a tendency to flip-flop rather frenetically in earlier seasons between TheBully and [[CoolBigSis the Cool Big Sis]], namely in regards to Claudia. Whereas Charlie and Bailey have more of a SiblingRivalry in Season 1, Julia has a tendency to see Claudia as more of an AnnoyingYoungerSibling with NoSenseOfPersonalSpace from time-to-time. Nevertheless, Claud gives as good as she gets, and the two end up being two of the closest siblings out of the bunch when all is said and done (and that's even with Claudia's BigBrotherWorship of Bailey).

The main plot focuses on the five kids of the Salinger family who have been orphaned after their parents are killed in a car accident. Charlie (Matthew Fox), an irresponsible 24-year-old worker of odd jobs has to step up and be the new man of the house. The second oldest is Bailey (Scott Wolf), a 16-year-old responsible team mom (at least for the first few seasons), despite not being the oldest...or a woman. 15-year old Julia (Neve Campbell) is sensitive, and 11-year-old Claudia (Creator/LaceyChabert) is a child prodigy. The fifth is Owen, barely a year old. During the series, they deal with issues like alcoholism, cancer, abuse, and death.

Added DiffLines:

* InTheBlood: "Intervention" is the episode when Joe reveals to Bailey that his father was an alcoholic (which Bailey thinks is a ploy until he sees how shocked Charlie, Julia and especially Claudia are at the news). As if that wasn't heartbreaking enough, this convinces Bailey that he should keep on being an alcoholic (though he eventually gets better).

* BrickJoke: The episode before Charlie and Kirsten were to be married in Season 2, Claudia rented what she thought was AnAffairToRemember for her and Kirsten, but it turned out they had been given a porn movie by mistake. Near the end of the episode, at Charlie's bachelor party, we see the guys are watching that copy of AnAffairToRemember.

* GayAesop:
** Claudia learns that her violin teacher is gay midway through season 1. Charlie delivers the Aesop to her and she's gotten over it by the end of the episode.
** In season 2 Julia makes friends with a closeted lesbian, who tries to cover up by getting off with a random guy. The end implies she's going to come out to her parents.



* LastMinuteHookUp: Inverted. [[spoiler: Bailey had been in a relationship with Holly for Season 6 but they split up before the finale. And Bailey is the only one of the siblings to be single by the end]]. Played straight however with Julia and [[spoiler: Justin]] who hook up at the end up the penultimate episode.
