* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: At one point Dewey has to scour library computers for pirated media, revealing most of the cast has used staff computers to engage in piracy (mostly just music downloads).

* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Averted. Mel's homosexuality is only mentioned offhand in the [[http://www.unshelved.com/2011-11-2 11/2/2011]] strip, which is the first time we've heard of it.
** Actually it is mentioned in passing in [[http://www.unshelved.com/2006-11-26 this strip]]
** It's also stated more explicitly in [[http://www.unshelved.com/2011-6-1 this strip]]
** She's also mentioned a messy divorce in her past, which may make this either BiTheWay, or she was once very closeted. We really don't know much at all about Mel's personal life.

* StalkingIsLove: Cathy stalks Dewey for the first few years of the strip's run despite multiple protests from him, and it's principally played for laughs. They eventually get together.
