* TheCameo: The series was brimming with them, from a surprisingly wide variety of actors, usually playing [[AsHimself themselves]] or [[TheDanza thinly-veiled versions thereof]]. Notable examples include Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, Arianna Huffington, Guinevere Turner, Ossie Davis, Eric Roberts, Dana Delany, Margot Kidder, [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Michael Hogan]], [[{{WTH Casting Agency}} Snoop Dogg]]. Between Tigh, Cally, Helo, Leoben and D'Anna, half the cast of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' showed up at one point or another. Cobie Smulders had a 4-episode run in Season 2, before [[Series/HowIMetYourMother her big break]].

* [[MrFanservice Heterosexual Brigade Bait]]: Most of the prominent male characters are conventionally handsome. There's also [[FetishFuelStationAttendant Shane]], the [[TallDarkAndHandsome dark-haired, androgynous]] {{Bifauxnen}} with the deep voice, the DarkAndTroubledPast, [[{{Harem}} admirers lining up around the block]], and as many [[ShirtlessScene shirtless scenes]] as any other two characters on the show put together.

* YouMonster: Bette, when Fae Buckley brings up [[ThisIsUnforgivable Tina's stillborn child in a debate and claims that god killed Tina's unborn child, because they were lesbians and god wanted to spare it from being raised by lesbians. This is what provoked Bette into pulling out a video cassette with a porno video, were the 17-year-old Fae Buckley a.k.a. "China" starred. She ran away from an abusive home and survived as a prostitute and porn actress. Tina also states the trope name word for word right before the end.]]
