** Even Louise Graham's "Sexy Soiree" that the lads manage to gatecrash isn't all that wild. The wildest thing we see happen is Charlotte in bed with Patrice and Neil, Simon and Jay end up standing around talking to nobody, as they know very few people there. What partying is shown just basically involves everyone sitting in random spots around the house drinking.

The wildest thing we see happen is Charlotte in bed with Patrice and the implication that Donovan beats the shit out of Patrice for it.

Added DiffLines:

* WildTeenParty:
** The lads don't really get invited to these. The one party we're shown that they are invited to is a tame affair with the parents of the hostess waiting upstairs to send everyone home at 11 o'clock. When [[MsFanservice Charlotte]] unexpectedly turns up, it's noted that it's the coolest party they've ever been invited to.

** Will discusses the pitfalls of this trope in "Home Alone", where he's worried that if he holds one of these, 4000 people will turn up and the roof of the house will end up being stolen.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGenericGuy: Davey Glover is a fellow student who appears sporadically throughout the first two seasons, starting with the first episode as the first non-new kid that Will attempts to speak to. For a recurring character, even one as minor as him, he isn't given much personality apart from being [[{{Jerkass}} something of an asshole]] and having a constant [[DullSurprise vaguely annoyed demeanour]]. He isn't even named until his final appearance in the second season finale.

** Tara does this as while high and concussed and ''then'' kisses Simon.

Added DiffLines:

* DoesNotLikeMen: Tara's older sister, Sophie, comes across this way, given that she's antagonistic towards every male character she is seen talking to. It's fairly well justified with "The Admiral", "The Commander" and "The Bombardier", since they're a trio of drunken idiots who are constantly disturbing her peace and with Jay, Will and Neil, who have turned up to her house uninvited, especially since Neil pisses in the bed and Jay bursts into her room demanding a threesome. She's hugely disapproving of Simon dating Tara and she had previously warned that Simon would go weird on her.


Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: When the lads drive to Warwick to stay at Tara's sister's house, Will and Neil have to share a tiny single bed, while Jay sleeps on the floor. This is a cause of major disturbance to Will when Neil wets the bed.

** Referring to Neil's dad's [[AmbiguouslyGay sexuality]] is about one of the only things that can get Neil upset.

Added DiffLines:

* DistaffCounterpart: Carli's friend from the first season finale, who refers to Simon as "Sickboy Boner" and gets with Jay at the party, is basically a female Jay. She chats Jay up with a [[BlatantLies story similar to one he would use]], [[CallBack accuses him of sounding "bent" in the same way Jay himself did with Simon earlier in the episode]] and even ''[[UpToEleven has the same haircut]]''.
