* LocalHangout: Pepper Pete's, which is beloved by pretty much everyone in town. Unusually for this trope, it's owned by Sam's dad, making it her family business and many of the mysteries and even some of the normal books feature her working there while Joe and/or David drop in to talk to her.

* LovableAlphaBitch: Amanda, in that she isn't particularly malicious or destructive. In at least two episodes she gets along with Sam, David and Joe.

* LovableAlphaBitch: Amanda, in that she isn't particularly malicious or destructive. In at least two episodes she gets along with Sam, David and Joe. In ''Stage Invader'', when the trio discusses if Amanda could be the perpetrator behind the stage pranks, Sam points out that it doesn't benefit Amanda to sabotage the play since she's the understudy, thus having all the incentive for the show to go forward and that [[spoiler:for all her showing off Amanda actually prioritized the play over her ego. She had a reason to get angry on hearing Crystal sabotaged hers and Ryan's bleachers for dancing, which could have gotten her injured]].


Added DiffLines:

** Max tries to take on [[spoiler:Mitch after he was inspired by Joe's story about fighting bullies like Damont. He gets a black eye as a result and fails to stop Mitch from stealing Wanda Gilmore's last flamingo. It gets lampshaded when Joe tells Max that you shouldn't take on a bully and a thief alone, and that you need friends to help.]]
** In ''Stage Invader'', after Sam reveals that [[spoiler:Crystal was behind most of the pranks and forces her to confess, Crystal apologizes and expects that she can still be Sandy in ''Grease''. The director Justin tells Crystal that's not happening; he has her understudy Amanda take over the part permanently and is reporting her to the principal. As Sam puts it, Crystal endangered the cast with her pranks and showed she cared more about her entertainment than the show. She ends up having to serve detention for a week and to clean up the auditorium after the play's opening night.]]

* AncientGrome: Averted in the episodes based off ClassicalMythology -- "The Odyssey", "King Midas", "Hercules and the Golden Apples", and "The Aeneid". Whether a deity is called by their Greek or Roman name depends on the myth and it's source. The only exception is the tale of "Hercules and the Golden Apples", will the title character is using his Roman name in a Greek setting (although since every adaptation of Hercules does pretty much the same thing, this can be forgiven).
