* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: In the first episode, a woman gives Roy a rather brutal beating using her shoes. Jen defuses the situation (after letting it go on for a while) but no one seems to be seriously concerned by it.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: In the first episode, a woman gives Roy a rather brutal beating using her shoes. Jen defuses the situation (after letting it go on for a while) but no one seems to be seriously concerned by it. Subverted, however, in "50/50," when Jen is humorously concerned that her date, who lost big on ''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'' because of her, will beat her with his shoe.

* LeaningOnTheForthWall: When Roy is going on about his trauma over being kissed on the ass by a masseur, he has to stop halfway through to angrily tell Jen to quit laughing. However, due to the way the shot is framed and the fact that we don't hear her, it comes off as him shaming the (more audible) studio audience.

* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Jen summarily dismisses the trauma of Roy having his butt kissed by a masseur and Moss being kissed against his will by Douglas.
** Somewhat subverted in the first case. Every character save for Jen takes what happened to Roy very seriously.
** Subverted in the second case; Roy and Moss get a bigger payout in the sexual harassment case due to being trapped in an office with a very horny Douglas.

* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Two subverted examples.
** Jen laughs in Roy's face when he tells her about his masseur kissing him on the bottom, but is the only one InUniverse not to take it seriously.

Moss's sexual harassment case due to by way of being trapped in an office with a very horny Douglas.Douglas, but in the end, the two get a bigger payout for their lawsuit than she did of her's.
*** That said, both examples ''are'' still PlayedForLaughs. Neither would be as funny if Jen were the victim.



* DudeNotFunny: InUniverse example. Roy's reaction to people laughing at his charity work for people with permanently crossed eyes. (After having done so himself, of course.)

** Roy has to yell at Jen to stop laughing when he tells her about the masseur kissing him on the butt.



** Roy and Moss accuse Jen of lowering her standards by going out with the geeky rock musician.



* TheFace: Jen is the socially capable NerdNanny for the IT Department. She has no computer skills but unlike the rest of the cast, she has social skills. Well... more so than ''them'', anyway.

** Moss talking on the phone with an overly long TechnoBabble speech.
-->'''Moss:''' Hello, IT? Yuh-huh? Have you tried forcing an unexpected reboot? [...] You see, the driver hooks a function by patching the system call table, so it's not safe to unload it unless another thread's about to jump in there and do its stuff, and you don't want to end up in the middle of invalid memory.
