* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his debut, Eugene is pretty much an ever-nodding yes-man who simply goes along with Wick's sentiments, while trying to keep his mouth shut, as he explains to Drew, "I've paid attention around here - people who shoot off their mouths never get ahead." There is also no hint that he's gay and seems eager to accompany Wick to a strip club. In his other two episodes he's slightly neurotic and suddenly has a not-so-secret crush on Drew, even trying to get him to change teams.

* {{Flanderization}}: Drew remained the everyman, but Oswald's stupidity, Lewis' oddness and Kate's promiscuity were ramped up. Mimi's make-up was just overdone and her clothing just poor fashion, later she practically wears clown make-up and aims to wear the most gawdy outfits imaginable.
** While always a BadBoss, Wick became more exaggerated and wacky as the seasons went by. During the [[OscarBait Emmy Bait]] episode, Mimi points out that Wick is essentially a cartoon character.
*** In one of the April Fool's episodes, during a ''Series/HeeHaw'' reference, he uses his real accent to do a "SAAAALUTE!" to his home town.

* {{Irony}}: Drew finally managed to get Mimi fired by convincing Mr. Wick to put her into a cubicle, which she refused to do.

When he learned that he went crazy over the moral obligation and getting her out of his backyard vs. not having to deal with her at work.
