* {{Bifauxnen}}: Jen disguises herself with just a hat and coat to follow Serena. Even the cops who stop and frisk Jen think she's a guy.

Added DiffLines:

* RashomonStyle: The second episode features one when Chaka and Mecca remember when they first met Matt and Fruity, and vice versa. All we really know for sure is that they were all in the park and Chaka was dancing in the fountain:
** Chaka remembers herself as a voluptuous dancer that had the attention of every guy in the park, and that Matt and Fruity were lanky nerds.
** Fruity remembers himself as a fit, confident skater, and Chaka as a plain, [[ACupAngst flat]] girl.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Though a lot of the show has still held up some 15 years later, the fashions, the slang, a few pop culture and political references, and the Twin Towers all date this squarely to the late-1990s[=/=]TurnOfTheMillennium.

* UsefulNotes/FurryFandom: A furry art/comics/cosplay group appears on a comic book convention, right next to the booth that Fruity and Matt are manning for Starbase 51. Noteable since this episode came out long before furries ever appeared in other mainstream media.

* GroinAttack: Goat delivers one to Jen under the belief that she was a man stalking Serina. Jen is unfazed and retaliates with one of her own. Apparently Goat's mother told him to always "go for the balls".

* OrSoIHeard: "And not an upscale stripclub like Scores, but one where the girls have nasty implant scars... not that I've been there or anything."

* RelationshipUpgrade: Of a sort: Serina comes to accept Alex for who he is as a real friend in the final episode, and of course the show was cancelled before another upgrade could happen.

* CasanovaWannabe: Fruity. Oh dear lord, Fruity. He's not completely unsuccessfull with the ladies, but the few people he manages to attract are either AxeCrazy or not quite as pretty as the Halloween makeup and nighttime lighting made it seem.

* CoolestClubEver: Episode 103 featured the local dive under Alex's apartment being turned into a massively trendy, popular club. Chaka is thrilled, especially since she can sneak in through the back from within the apartment building. Alex, who has to sleep above the pounding techno music, is less thrilled.

* SubwaysSuck: In Episode 102, a battle-of-the-sexes train race of Chaka and Mecca vs. Matt and Fruity to get to Coney Island. Chaka acts impulsively and takes random trains while Mecca is too spineless to stop her. Matt looks at the maps, makes a plan and firmly sticks to it despite Fruity's complaints, but all for nothing when their train line ends abruptly due to construction.
