** Zii likes to think of herself as a great manipulator, but most of the time, she just improvises her way out of difficulties, and sometimes she makes things worse rather than better. For example, she brings Yuki into band rehearsals to disrupt Sonya's attempts to seduce her, but that of course brings Yuki into the band -- which Zii had been ''specifically'' trying to avoid. Her schemes aren't usually ''wildly'' zany, but they're rarely as clever as she thinks.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: PlayedForLaughs. The only reason Kiley's "therapy" with Matt isn't a horrific breach of psychological ethics is because she's not actually a psychologist. And while the therapy ''kind of'' works, it's more because being in a stable relationship is good for both of them than Kiley having any idea what she's doing.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: PlayedForLaughs. The only reason PlayedForLaughs in the form of HollywoodPsych with Kiley's various attempts to provide "therapy" with Matt isn't a for other characters. The only reason they aren't horrific breach breaches of psychological ethics is because she's not actually a licensed psychologist. And while In any case, sometimes they work implausibly brilliantly, in others they work more by luck than skill, and in others again, her approach verges on CloudCuckooLander territory. For example, the therapy reason her work with Matt ''kind of'' works, it's works for a while is probably more because being in a stable relationship is good for both of them than Kiley having any idea what she's doing.

** Gary's former roommates are named Matt and Dillon. [[Series/{{Gunsmoke}} Matt? Dillon?]] Huh... (Funnily enough, nobody in the comics universe ever notices that until Ruby, who seems to have a taste for old TV series, [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/magnet_bringing_us_closer sees and hears them together]] in a ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' strip and lampshades the gag.)
