* For all of Angelica's meanness to the babies, she just wants to be included in their activities but doesn't know how. This becomes apparent when in "Home Movies", she invites the babies to draw their own home movies. When it's Tommy's turn, he talks about all the fun he has with his parents and friends... but not Angelica. She interrupts his home movie with her own, explicitly stating how she was going to stomp them because "they left her out". It's meant to be seen as her being a bully again (especially since her home movie was about her getting all sorts of sweets and becoming a giant) but that one statement reminds us that she's just a girl that doesn't like to get left out.

* "Two By Two"'s ending, [[GainaxEnding slightly confusing as it is]], deserves mention. Context: after Grandpa Boris tells the kids about the story of Noah's Ark, Angelica (after hearing a weather report) convinces the babies that it's going to rain for 40 days and nights in real life. As such, they make an ark of their own (out of cardboard boxes in the backyard). By the end of the episode, all of the babies are in said ark, but there's no more room for Angelica (since she's the only one who isn't paired with anyone else). Just then, the weather starts to take a turn and, as Angelica tries telling them she made up the thing about the rain, [[TemptingFate it starts to pour]]. And so, the episode ends with Angelica trying one last time to get into the ark... which transitions back to the Noah's Ark story, with Angelica being left behind, along with some ducks. [[SandInMyEyes The rain makes it hard to tell if Angelica is crying or not in the last shot.]]

** Even worse? In Boris' telling of Noah's Ark, all of the babies (and Angelica) are given roles. Angelica's role? '''Noah's ''wife''.'''

** In "Chuckie's Wonderful Life", Chuckie has a dream where he was never born. Chaz lives in squalor and uses a hand puppet to keep him company. Most of the dream world is over the top, but Chaz's downward spiral after his wife's death is believable.

* "Give and Take":
** Upon reluctantly donating Boppo to Chuckie, as soon as Chuckie goes home, Tommy begins crying because he misses Boppo already.
** Once Chuckie is informed that Boppo [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes is a clown]], he tries to find a way to get rid of Boppo without returning him to Tommy, for fear of seeming ungrateful. Angelica helps Chuckie let all the air out, which Chuckie is initially happy about, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone until he realizes how upset Tommy will be upon seeing what happened to Boppo]]. When Tommy does find out, Chuckie says he understands if Tommy never wants to speak to him again. Though Tommy understands that Chuckie's fears got the better of him, he's still saddened by the fact that Boppo can't be played with anymore. [[spoiler: Until Stu reinflates Boppo.]]
