* {{Expy}}: You could think Dalia is [[Film/MeanGirls Regina George]] mixed with Karen, while Dallas is a less embarrassing Mrs George, and Tessa is essentially Cady. However, Tessa is much more aggressive, self-confident and ambitious than Cady, and Dalia is very open-minded for some things and less manipulative. On the other hand, Tessa also has a striking resemblance to Ginger from ''AsToldByGinger'', which was also created by Emily Kapnek.

** Concerned about what anger management has done to him, George deliberately tries to trigger Noah's by taking him to a restaurant where the waiter is deliberately being terrible, which doesn't phase him. [[spoiler: He finally breaks out of it when another kid calls his son a "fatass"]]
