---> '''Mac''': ''I don't like you!'' ({{Beat}}) Don't you get it? Nobody likes you! You're annoying and weird and you talk too much and Bloo's name is not Chester, Mr. Herriman is not a badger, that's not how you play checkers, and protein doesn't come from bananas, it comes from nuts, which you don't need to eat more of because you are nuts! You're chock full of nuts! You're so nuts, you drive ''ME'' nuts! (Jumps in Goo's face) Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it?! Everybody thinks you're a nuisance and they all want you to just ''GO HOME!!!''

* Even if she is an EthnicScrappy with an annoying singing voice, Eurotrish gets quite a raw deal in "Foster's Goes to Europe". Not only does Bloo keep on rudely denying Eurotrish her chances to go back to Europe, but the scene that plays during the credits shows Eurotrish finally making it to her creator's home, [[YankTheDogsChain only for her creator to turn her away]]. It's especially heartbreaking when you take into account that most creators in this series are shown to be loving and caring toward their imaginary friends even in adulthood.

* Bloo and Mac having to split up in the pilot episode, especially after Mr. Herriman shamelessly breaks his spirit by tell Bloo to his fact that Mac is never coming back. He's seen it a million times.

** Even worse, as pointed out under FridgeHorror, Bloo is supposed to be based on a security blanket but because of Mac's upbringing, he can't fathom a security that doesn't involve being abused. So the closest thing he has to a best friend is an abusive jerk.

* In general: Mac's mom is always at work, we never see his dad, he's constantly tortured daily by his older brother, it's implied that he doesn't have any friends at school and is a common target for bullies, his imaginary friend is a huge jerk to him yet he's so sweet that he still visits him every day.

** Mac coming home from his first visit to Foster's after dropping off Bloo, with a handful of Coco's eggs. He just walks in and glumly walks back to his room while Terrance follows and repeatedly smacks him in the back of his head.

* The pilot movie is actually very sad. Back before Bloo became a {{Jerkass}}, it was heartbreaking to have to watch him and Mac be split apart. Also, the whole concept of Fosters in general is a bit depressing, seeing as how the main cast only stay there because none of the kids that come in ever want them.

--> '''Terrance''': Where were you, anyway, ''stupid''? What are those ''stupid'' eggs, ''stupid''?? Where's that ''stupid little blue friend of yours, ''stupid''? Mom told ya to get rid of him!! Ho-ho-hoo boy! If you didn't, you're gonna be so-
--> '''Mac''': (finally turning around and [[SuddenlyShouting screaming]]): I WAS NOWHERE AND THEY'RE NOTHING AND I TOOK CARE OF IT!! '''[[BigWordShout HAPPY?!]]'''
--> ''(Terrance looks at him, speechless, as Mac slams his bedroom door behind him)''.
* When you think about it, it's rather sad that all of these regular characters are imaginary friends ready to be adopted, but who no child wants, apparently.

* Frankie's backstory [[WordOfGod according to the Tweets made by Craig McCracken]]. Because Frankie's dad (who was also Foster's son) was disillusioned over Imaginary Friends thanks to his experiences with Mr. Herriman, Frankie was never allowed to have or create one, and she was forced to get rid of the only one she actually got to create thanks to her dad. Her main reason for living with her grandma in Foster's Home instead of with her parents? So she could see that same Imaginary Friend she herself created again someday.
