* AcceptableTargets: [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=223 Discussed]] in TheRant, as Tailsteak feigning outrage at complaints that the character of [[ScaryBlackMan Richard]] was racist. [[invoked]]
-->'''Tailsteak:''' Richard was a one-dimensional brute, not because of his race, but because he was male, seventeen, poor, stupid, and had a habit of abusing recreational narcotics. I'm not a racist - I'm a sexist, an ageist, a classist, an intellectualist, and a narcoticist! Those are all socially acceptable prejudices.


Added DiffLines:

* DudeNotFunny: InUniverse, Jamie's homebrew games ''Cat Burglar'' and ''Hungry Hungry Hitler'', about being an animal hoarder and running a concentration camp, respectively. Ellen was offended by ''Cat Burglar'' and sarcastically posited the plot to ''Hungry Hungry Hitler'' as a hypothetical way to top it in terms of vileness; whereupon Jamie revealed he had done such a thing.

* ArcWords: Characters bring up variations on the "brother's keeper" line from Literature/TheBible throughout Jaime's personal arc, often resulting in Jaime analyzing its meaning. Jaime's arc explores the idea of personal responsibility, so this is fitting. Perhaps most notable is an instance where Jaime declares "[[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=698 I choose to be my brother's keeper,]]" when justifying his decision to [[spoiler:investigate Richard's murder on his own]].

** The joke is extended a [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=9 couple]] [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=12 times]] in the same storyline. However, in a subversion, Jaime does eventually [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=308 get an earful from Lily]] about the inappropriateness of his behavior.
** Max strongly implies that she has this in mind for Jamie in [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=300 this]] strip as a joke. [[SubvertedTrope Jaime is not pleased by this.]]

** After a month in comic time (''years'' in real time), [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=555 Ellen finally asks]] how in the world Jaime [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=10 reconstituted Rice Krispies back into rice.]]

* ChekhovsGunman: If a seemingly minor character has a name, they're probably going to show up later. Most notable is Cheryl, first introduced as a seemingly-throwaway police station worker who harasses Jaime after his run-in with Richard Knight. [[spoiler:Turns out she's Carol's sister. Once Jaime starts interacting with Carol, he inevitably runs into Cheryl again, starting a long-term plotline where they are forced to work out their differences.]]

* CrimeOfSelfDefense: The longest arc in the series thus far involves Jamie getting mugged and his attacker pressing charges when he defends himself. [[spoiler: The situation is eventually resolved quite neatly by Jaime's mugger dying of a drug overdose; because his testimony was the prosecution's only evidence, Jaime can't be brought to court. Much later, however, it is revealed that there's a lot more to the story -- the kid who died wasn't the mugger at all, and the criminal is still at large.]]

** [[spoiler:Jaime's mugger is adamant about taking Jaime's entire wallet, identification and all. Turns out he already pulled the same trick earlier that night, meaning that the police got false identification when they searched his wallet: he's not Richard Knight at all. This means he's still at large after Knight's death, a fact that's also foreshadowed when Wallace is pulled over for resembling a black criminal.]]
** [[spoiler:Ellen is awfully possessive of Jaime, discouraging him from going on a date with Gina. Unsurprisingly, her feelings for him aren't as platonic as she likes to think they are.]]

** When Jaime has to make up a pseudonym so he can [[spoiler:infiltrate a PCP ring]], he chooses "Rick Bishop". This name is very similar to "Richard Knight"; he likely chose it [[spoiler:in honor of Richard's memory, as he just discovered that Richard was not his attacker, but rather an innocent victim]].

* MistakenForRacist: [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=62 When Jamie meets Wallace after his scuffle with Richard Knight.]] He quickly discovers that the newspaper has published a rather ''creative'' interpretation of the events, casting Jaime as a white supremacist who assaulted a minor unprovoked. Later, Jaime discovers that [[spoiler:Cheryl]] holds this conviction as well, and he doesn't manage to completely convince her of his side of the story.

*** Jaime counters this by referring to Cheryl as "Cheryla" until she stops referring to him as "Halliganiv". So far, this hasn't happened yet.

* PoliceAreUseless: The track record of the police in the comic is 1) trying to put Jamie away for murder by any means foul or fair (he was innocent), 2) pulling Wallace over for driving while black (he hadn't done anything) and 3) harassing pot-smokers, also by any means foul or fair (which is at least targeting ''actual'' criminals for once, but Tailsteak has made it clear that he thinks that laws against pot are objectively, inarguably bad).

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Jamie's cover story for trying to get PCP (long story) is to say he needs it for medical research-curing Alzheimer's Disease, to be specific. One of the street thugs says that his grandma had the condition and agrees to help.
