* AmoralAttorney / BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite (or perhaps because of) her cruel streak and party-girl personality, Bad Sam was a successful attorney; Samantha's friend Andrea is also [[InformedAbility supposed to be a successful lawyer]], but comes across as more of a BrainlessBeauty.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In one episode, Samantha is expecting to have sex for the first time since amnesia and is advised by Dena that her "carpet should match the drapes" which Dena ''thinks'' means that her bra and panties should match. When Samantha echoes the phrase to Todd, he tells her [[Film/ThePrincessBride "I don't think that phrase means what you think it means."]]
* GenreSavvy: Generally, when Samantha tries to explain her different personality due to amnesia, her listeners are skeptical, believing that this kind of amnesia was made up by Hollywood. Sam herself is aware of this, and once she find out that "Bad Sam" used the amnesia excuse before, her reaction was something like "And you believed it?"

* LampshadeHanging: Not until Episode 5 did someone say "Amnesia doesn't exist! It's just a cheap and lazy storytelling device."

* TranslationByVolume: PlayedWith. The main character has amnesia and when she meets up with her friend, the friend starts using this trope, speaking loudly and unnaturally clearly. Another friend quickly berates her, letting her know that Samantha has amnesia but isn't deaf. She is also obviously not a foreigner.
