* Hypocrite: Richard and Allen. A particularly good example comes from Richard, who ''fully'' believes his son has engaged in making a sex tape with a principal seventy years his senior, but demands that Julie prove she has any actual friends by bringing them over to their penthouse in person. Unsurprisingly, neither are fazed whenever called on out this.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBadGuyWins: Given the DesignatedHero status of our main "protagonists", the show practically runs on this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: The final scene of the series before its cancellation shows Allen [[TheBadGuyWins leaving Gina at the mercy of the lecherous superintendent]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Sheila delivers one to Allen and Richard when she leaves them. Her words would echo exactly what people absolutely hated about the show and its characters, things that would lead to the show being cancelled:
-->'''Sheila:''' "Oh no, I'm leaving by choice, cause you ''(Allen)'' are a ''horrible'' child that says terrible things to people. And Richard, I don't know if you've noticed this about yourself, but you are a gay man, maybe the gayest man I've ever met. I got swept up in the idea of wanting to be in my son's life, but you are a family of ''awful people''. Except [[OnlySaneMan Julie]], she's sweet!"

* BreakingTheFourthWall: In-universe. This was what saved Allen's play.

* MagicalNegro: The concept is played with with Carl. Allen Gregory treats him as this, but he's quite clearly as crazy and useless as every other adult in his life.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: It's pretty hard to think that Richard De Longpre was ''not'' meant to be this to the audience. He's a humongous JerkAss who acts TooDumbToLive, was KickedUpstairs in his own company due to his sheer incompetence, was outright stated to have stalked his life partner into making him leave his family, routinely mistreats said partner, and seems to take pride in how much of an arrogant, self-serving, underhanded slimeball he is.

* LittleMissSnarker: Julie. It's justified considering that she puts up with Allen Gregory and Richard on a regular basis.
