Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The oddity of a grown man inviting two minors to his home to talk about sex might [[NotWhatItLooksLike raise some eyebrows]] in other shows (and mind you ''does'' get a mention from some of the characters), but when [[BumblingDad George]] invited Lisa and Malik over to play monopoly ''and'' talk about what they like to do on their dates he was actually trying to suss out what ''Tessa was up to on her date''. There is a [[BlackComedy darkly comedic]] moment when George brings up the topic of sex and both teens look noticeably alarmed.
-->'''Malik''': Um, can I call my mom to come pick me up?

Added DiffLines:

* BigFancyHouse: The Royces' mansion. Their house is so big that apparently some of its area is already in another town, [[WrongSideOfTheTracks East Chatswin]], which at one point, causes them to have their Chatswin privileges taken away, as they're considered the residents of East Chatswin.

* {{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.

* BlondesAreEvil: Dalia. Dallas just avoids this, coming across more as a SpoiledSweet type.

--> '''Dalia:''' Tessa, you're reminding me of TylerPerry right now. You're joking, but you're not funny.\\
'''Tessa:''' I'm not joking! Although I don't disagree about TylerPerry.

** 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"]]
