* WildTeenParty: In the promptly named episode "Home Alone". Though in an aversion it's not Sharon who threw it, but her brothers who take advantage of the fact their babysitter had to leave them due to a family emergancy. Sharon tries to be the responsible one doing the chores and whatnot. The one time she does try to loosen up and relax is when her mom not surprisingly comes back early from her vacation. Though her brothers get her off the hook by taking responsibility for the party, the most punishment Sharon gets is not getting the desired curfew extension she wanted.

* EmbarrassingTattoo: An episode has Sharon going behind her mom's back to get a Chinese character tattoo that allegedly means "freedom" (but actually means "grapefruit"). In that same episode, Sharon's mom reveals that when she was young (possibly around Sharon's age), she got a tattoo of her disco ball done on her rear end, but she later had it removed when she realized it looked more like a golf ball than a disco ball.



* GetBackInTheCloset: Dion, an openly gay character, was one of the reasons the third season of Braceface didn't air in the US.



* KindlyVet: In one episode, Sharon did work experience at an animal hospital and broke down in tears when a rabbit she tried to help save didn't make it.



* PictureDay: It's set during the school years; no surprise this pops up.

to:

* PictureDay: It's set during the school years; no surprise this pops up. Naturally Sharon's braces broke the camera.
* PoolScene: Has a couple. Examples include "The Coolest", "Up in Smoke", "Second Thoughts", and an episode with Sharon, her friends, and her class fighting British rival girls to win back the school pool.
* PopularIsDumb: Averted with Nina, who's not only the most popular girl in her grade, but is also one of the top students.


Added DiffLines:

* RacistGrandma: The episode "Grey Matters", which featured Sharon's Grandpa. However, unlike some other examples, he isn't a hateful man in the slightest. He's actually quite a nice guy. However, he believes in several racial stereotypes (Arabs having harems, Asians being bad drivers), and jokes around about this with Sharon's friend Maria and her boyfriend, who are Asian and Arabian. Her boyfriend playfully runs with it, while Maria is offended. It's implied that he gets over it by the end of the episode.

* AlphaBitch: Nina Harper. Partially subverted - she's as rich, popular, and nasty as any proper Alpha Bitch, but is actually a top student in her class. On top of that, the reason she's nasty comes from her parents not paying attention to her and her accusing Sharon of wrecking her dolls when she was a kid ([[spoiler:until she finds out her cousin did it and that she wasted her life being mean to Sharon for no reason]]).

* EasilyForgiven: Allison. To be fair, many early episodes did show that she was nicer than Nina, and Sharon and Maria initially did not want to trust her, but they are all buddies the episode after she breaks off from Nina.

This one also hand waved the fact that the frogs are supposed to be delivered pre-killed by showing the teacher complaining to the delivery guy about the mix-up that resulted in live ones being delivered.
