* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: A constant sore spot for Chett is how Wyatt is constantly the favorite in the family.
-->'''Chett:''' You've never been second best. You've always been the good son. You're gonna get the good job. You're the one Nana wants to see at Christmas. Well, not anymore. Now you can see how I felt when you potty trained at eight months.
* AndStarring: Vanessa Angel as Lisa



* IJustWantToBeYou: What helps get the FreakyFridayFlip in "Switched at Birth" going. After his parents again bail on him, Wyatt says Gary is lucky to have parents who are always around and want to do family activities. Gary, however, is annoyed by how his parents never leave him alone and wouldn't mind having absentee folks that shower a kid with money and gifts.



* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Gary's actions in "Switched at Birth" make it look like Wyatt is out of control and in need of discipline. Marcia believes the only solution is to send Wyatt to the same military school Chett was sent to.



* NoirEpisode: "The Genie Detective"

to:

* NoirEpisode: "The Genie Detective"Detective" plays it to the hilt. Lisa plays a VR game, where she is a detective named Legs [=MacGuffin=]. She has to figure out who poisoned a rich man (who looks like Chett) and find the cure, while the other side characters look like Wyatt, Gary, and Scampi. It turns out, though, the guy actually is Chett; he hooked into the VR game to play, too, only to learn he'll actually die from the poison if they don't solve the case.



* SoProudOfYou: At the end of "It's a Mob, Mob, Mob, Mob World," Wayne tells Wyatt that he has always made him and Marcia proud.



* TakeThat: In "Slow Times at Farber High," Gary's attempt to use a brain-draining machine on a nerd who humiliated him backfires when he inadvertently sucks up ''everyone's'' intelligence. At one point, he wonders where all of the now-stupid teenagers have vanished to. It turns out they've all gathered to watch ''Series/SavedByTheBell: The College Years.''

In "Slow Times at Farber High," Gary's attempt to use a brain-draining machine on a nerd who humiliated him backfires when he inadvertently sucks up ''everyone's'' intelligence. At one point, he wonders where all of the now-stupid teenagers have vanished to. It turns out they've all gathered to watch ''Series/SavedByTheBell: The College Years.''''
** In the HalloweenEpisode, the guys are confronted by the cyber-demon possessing Lisa, and it refers to itself as the essence of all that is evil in the computer world.
--->'''Gary:''' You're Bill Gates?


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: In "Teen Lisa," Lisa (disguised as a HollywoodHomely teenager) suffers a lot of misfortune at school before being asked out by one of the popular guys. Gary and Wyatt are initially confused and worried, but just as they think this is all on the up and up, they overhear the AlphaBitch and BetaBitch talk about how "happy" they are for Lisa.
-->'''Gary:''' Something's horribly wrong.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAce: Chett in the ItsAWonderfulPlot. In a world without Wyatt, Chett is a model student that constantly gets good grades, has numerous outside activities, and is adored by his parents. The problem is that without a sibling to divvy up the attention, the parents put too much pressure on him to succeed; he's constantly on the edge of a nervous breakdown and dreads letting everyone down.


Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: In "Genie Junior," Wyatt chastises Lisa for willingly kissing Chett and calls the guy the most immature person he knows.
-->'''Gary:''' ''[having jammed two large fries under his upper lip]'' Rah, I am Walrus Man!\\
'''Wyatt:''' ''[to Lisa]'' I stand by my statement.
* InstantlyProvenWrong: At the neighborhood block party in "Bee in There," Wyatt blames his father for his inability to throw a baseball. Gary likes the idea of blaming the parents for his own failings--calling Al a cold, distant man. We then immediately see Al has been entertaining the neighborhood children and clearly enjoying himself.


Added DiffLines:

* ManIFeelLikeAWoman: Averted in "The Feminine Mistake" when Lisa makes Gary and Wyatt look like girls. Everyone else sees their feminine forms, but they see each other as they normally look. It's just an optical illusion. While they can see the female reflections in the mirror, Gary is quite disappointed to be unable to feel the supposed breasts.

* FromBadToWorse: "Sci-Fi Zoned" builds up to this. Lisa zaps Gary and Wyatt into ''[[Series/Series/TheTwilightZone1959 The Sci-Fi Zone]]'', the show that helped them become best friends. They're told it'll only last for a day, but once time is up, they instead crash into a city with no food or water. Lisa realizes she forgot that time has no meaning here, so a day could last a lifetime. Worse, the guys find this Lisa is just a hologram--meaning they're completely on their own.

The series, which aired on the USANetwork from 1994 to 1997, changed settings from Illinois (in the original film) to California. Probably for budgetary reasons, but they could have at least [[CaliforniaDoubling pretended it was still Illinois]].
