* TheCheerleader: Jenny, though the usual character type is averted. Robin Pretnar is a straight example.

* TheCheerleader: Jenny, though just in that she [[PomPomGirl works up crowds with dancing, chanting and the usual waving of pom poms]]. As for the nasty "cheerleader" character type type, there is averted. Robin Pretnar is a straight example.Pretnar.

** The second season finale has an animated sequence comparing the machine war in {{Terminator}} to what Pinkerton High being ruled by the JerkJock and the AlphaBitch would end up as.

* DawsonCasting: Everyone. Kudos to Jenny being played by a ''30-year-old''. Miles is being played by a '''32 year-old.'''


Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodPudgy: Invoked/Lampshaded in one episode where [[MistakenForCheating Max was caught with panties that aren't Jenny's]], to prove his innocence he shows RJ that the panties are a size Medium and he doesn't date "fatties", [[OnlySaneMan RJ is not amused]].

Added DiffLines:

* GayGuySeeksPopularJock: Guillermo and [[spoiler: Max]]. The last episode implied that their feelings for each other were genuine, what with the mutual eye contact while RJ was giving his speech about love.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Claire, the NewTransferStudent who becomes RJ's first real girlfriend, is never seen or mentioned again after she breaks up with RJ, even though she still presumably goes to Pinkerton High, and would probably want to hang out with the other nerds there.

Added DiffLines:

** The season 2 finale is also an example. At the end of episode, things are looking pretty good for most of the main characters, and since ''The Hard Times of RJ Berger'' was cancelled and this was the last episode, it would've served as a decent enough conclusion for the whole series... But then, literally at the last minute, Lily walks in and [[spoiler:announces that she's pregnant, and that RJ is the father]], so the series [[CutShort ends abruptly]] with a {{cliffhanger}}.
