* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Almost verbatim when [[http://narbonic.com/comic/march-8-13-2004/ the envoy of Hell]] appears to Dave, Artie and Seth. Well, granted, not a form that ''Dave'' is comfortable with.

Immediately after the end of ''Narbonic'', it was followed by ''SkinHorse'', later revealed to be [[TheVerse set in the same universe.]]

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Dave has this to say when Helen's ReunionRevenge begins to go south.
-->'''Dave''': No kidding. You don't want to '''talk''' to your victims.

* ClueFromEd

to:

* ClueFromEdClueFromEd: Dave receives a DeusExMachina in the form of twenty-year-old bathroom graffiti.



* EvilLaugh

to:

* EvilLaughEvilLaugh: A given when half the cast are MadScientist.



* IntellectualAnimal

to:

* IntellectualAnimalIntellectualAnimal: Artie, Dana, and the other gerbils.



* [[spoiler:KidFromTheFuture]]

to:

* [[spoiler:KidFromTheFuture]][[spoiler:KidFromTheFuture]]: [[spoiler: Dave's daughter. Bonus points for being the reason they got back together.]]



* NoFourthWall

to:

* NoFourthWallNoFourthWall: Less so as the comic progressed, but the FourthWallMailSlot remained dubiously semi-canon right through to the end.



* RuleOfPool

to:

* RuleOfPoolRuleOfPool: [[spoiler: The future depends on it!]]



* SexDressed

to:

* SexDressedSexDressed: Whether it's [[spoiler: Helen]] wearing [[spoiler: Dave]]'s clothes, or [[spoiler: Dave]] wearing [[spoiler: Helen]]'s ''body'', is unclear, but coitus most certainly had ensued.



* TheMadHatter
* TheyCalledMeMad

to:

* TheMadHatter
TheMadHatter: Most of the characters know they're insane, and are o.k. with that.
* TheyCalledMeMadTheyCalledMeMad: A given, given [[MadScientist the protagonists]].



* TimeTravel

to:

* TimeTravelTimeTravel: Of both the [[MentalTimeTravel mental]] and physical varieties. The latter requires [[ApocalypseHow every ounce of energy in the universe]], so doesn't get used too often.

* GeekyAnalogy: Dave does this a lot; since he works for a mad scientist, his analogies with ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and Creator/MarvelComics are usually highly appropriate.

* GambitRoulette: Helen may or may not (See IndyPloy above) have planned ''everything'' that happens in the strip's run.

to:

* GambitRoulette: Helen may or may not (See IndyPloy above) IndyPloy) have planned ''everything'' that happens in the strip's run.


Added DiffLines:

** [[MindScrew Unless it's not.]] Later on, she implies that [[ChessMaster pretty much everything that's happened for a little over half the comic was all part of her plan]]. Asked by Dave whether she is a mistress of GambitRoulette or just does whatever the voices in her head say, she questions whether these are even different things.

Added DiffLines:

* UpliftedAnimal: Helen's gerbils. Played with, in that the gerbils have explicitly been made not just "more intelligent", but more human-like in their thought-processes as well. This becomes a minor plot point when [[spoiler: many of the rebelling gerbils are wiped out by [[CuteKitten Sir Pounce]] because they can't resist the CutenessProximity]], and later with [[spoiler: [[HumanityEnsues Artie's]] sexuality]]. Also, Artie objects to the hierarchal implications of "uplifted".

Added DiffLines:

* SickAndWrong: Regarding Madblood programming her with the voice of Creator/JenniferConnelly and the start up phrase "How may I serve you, Lupin Madblood, you handsome devil?" Lovelace has this to say:
-->'''Lovelace:''' "I know I haven't been sentient as long as some people, but this feels wrong."

Added DiffLines:

** The [[YouWillKnowWhatToDo context-less warning]] from [[spoiler:Future-Dave]] to refill the swimming pool when the time comes is not just there for spoiler-riffic plot reasons. It's also a reference to VideoGame/ManiacMansion, one of the creator's favorite video games, where [[spoiler:draining and failing to refill the pool [[TheManyDeathsOfYou killed the player and everything in five miles of the mansion]]]].
