* BreakingTheFourthWall: In most episodes, JP monologues to the audience talking about the theme of the episode, and Davina talks directly to the camera about receiving letters from her boyfriend Vince. However, these have both been suggested to be FourthWallPsych in other episodes. In Davina's case that her monologues are actually entries from her diary, and in JP's case he is just talking to nobody because he's, well, weird. It's also common for Hamish to give an AsideGlance and an AsideComment, and generally there is dialogue that is LeaningOnTheFourthWall, usually regarding the show's low budget and strange plots.

* FlatEarthAtheist: The Pets are aware of all the strange things that go on in their house, but whenever any of them suggests that they might be dealing with something supernatural the others dismiss it as nonsense, even though it usually turns out to be true.
