* AlliterativeFamily: All of the children in the Brown family have names that start with the letter "J" (Joyce, Jordan, John, and Josh [[spoiler: actually Jocelyne.]]) Likely because Jesus also starts with "J", and their parents find religion to be a pretty big deal.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Penny is Jason's Ex and a sarcastic TA. She doesn't murder his father and lead a string of brutal attacks that leave dozens dead. On the other hand, she's not exactly ethical, and is carrying on an affair with a student, Joe.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent: Something of a core theme of the comic.
** Both Becky and Joyce are in the process of breaking away from Christian fundamentalist upbringings to more broad-minded world-views, making friends with non-fundamentalist fellow college students in the process, which leads to serious friction with their still-fundamentalist families. Whereas Joyce is on a long, hard path of change, so that her relationship with her family is merely difficult and complicated, Becky breaks away radically, coming out as lesbian and abandoning creationism and her father responds by bringing a shotgun to the college.
** Amber's relationship with her father is ''violently'' negative, to traumatic effect for some of her friends.

** Raidah et al are an interesting case where they are definitely [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] (view their treatment of Dina), but they view their enemy Sarah as being a JerkAss instead of them, for getting their friend Dana, who was Sarah' roommate, expelled/withdrawn from school for (from their perspective) very selfish reasons-- Dana's depression/drug use was interfering with Sarah's ability to study, and thus Sarah's scholarship, so she called Dana's dad. Dana's issues were actually severe enough to legitimately need help from an authority figure, but since she [[StepfordSmiler managed to keep that hidden]] from Raidah ''et al'', Sarah's reaction seems like DisproportionateRetribution to them.
