** From 'By Jove You've Wrecked My Robot!': "Well, Bob, realize means to figure something out, to understand something. Like how Tobey realizing all those things made him think I'm Wordgirl." (Screen pans to the right, showing a grinning Tobey) "And how I just realized that I probably shouldn't have defined that word."

* SweetTooth: Tobey, to some degree, as he frequently invites [=WordGirl=] out for icecream, and wanted all the Halloween candy in "Tobey's Tricks and Treats". Many of the other characters are also shown loving dessert, often eating too much at once (e.g. Mr Botsford, The Whammer, etc.).

%% * MindControl: Mr. Big's company's mission statement, actually: "We strive to constantly use mind control."
* MindControlEyesMindControlEyes: Anyone under the influence of either Mr. Big's mind control or Victoria Best's hypnotic recorder will show these (glowing green spiral eyes for the former, purple circles for the latter).
* MindControlMusic: One of Victoria Best's many talents is her recorder-playing skills. She can play her recorder so well that anyone who hears it falls into a trance.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSmoking: Borderline averted in one episode, where Becky's {{Muggle}} dad uses a cigarette lighter to [[ItMakesSenseInContext light a candle on a magic cupcake]]. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, but even that's pretty envelope-pushing for PBS.
