* NoodleIncident: "I'm never gonna do ''that'' in ''there'' with ''those things'' for ''that long'' ever again." However, this does get explained in a later episode.

** While it does explain much, it's not much of an excuse. Orel's childhood isn't far off from this. Which was likely was the point: [[spoiler:despite all the bad things that happened to Orel, ''he'' still got his life back together.]] And arguably, that was the point of the other point: [[spoiler:Clay's abuse of Orel is to try to bring the boy down to his father's level, so that Clay can convince himself that he's not responsible for what he's become, which is why Orel's continuing intent to goodness makes Clay even more miserable and hateful.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Played with, some season one happenings don't really jive with the rest of the series. The pilot had the use of magic to bring back the dead, and cause a zombie apocalypse, magic is never used again in the series aside from some moments regarding faith which fall into MaybeMagicMaybeMundane. Orel [[BlackComedyRape impregnating]] all the women in town was a more out-there moment. Both did get mentions in season 3, with a flashback to the apocalypse, and a newspaper saying that the rapist (Mr. Creepler) wasn't Orel this time. [[spoiler: Unreleased plans for the next series may have had Ms. Censordoll using voodoo to control Clay.]]

** The second episode had Clay admitting that Orel's latest mishap was really his own fault for not being honest enough, something he'd never even contemplate doing in later episodes. In general, Clay comes off a lot more sincere and well-intentioned in the early episodes, though he's not really any better a person in practice.



* {{Escapism}}: [[spoiler: Nurse Bendy's room looks like that of a little girl, full of bright colors and toys. She acts out the role of a mother to a loving family with a teddy bear husband and teddy bear son. She does it to escape from being constantly used, being utterly alone, and having no one who really thinks about her thoughts and feelings and treats her like a real person. However, once she is reunited with her actual son Joe, she throws away her "son" doll, because she finally has a real son who cares about her a lot]]. Very arguably one of the most positive portrayals of anti-escapism in television.

* LampshadeHanging: At least once for all the running jokes. The most blatant was probably having a throwaway character called [[ThemeNaming Mr. Stopmotionanimationname]].

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: In "Loyalty", Clay actually gives Orel reasonable advice for once, telling him not to be loyal to Joe to the exclusion of all his other friends. However, being Clay, he misses the bigger picture and says nothing about Orel beating up other children for being homosexual.

* PassionPlay: Orel's school puts on one of these written by the oft-forgotten member of a band in an attempt to resurrect his career. For the most part, the play was forgettable, except for the VillainSong by Orel (playing Judas) about his animosity towards Christ.
