** A more literal example in the finale: Edina and Patsy do all sorts of horrible things to Saffron over the years, who suffers silently as a LoveMartyr until the final special, which has Edina striking her granddaughter. Which is enough to get Saffron to disown her mother and force her and Patsy out of the house, with the reveal that [[spoiler: Saffron is the real owner of the house (due to Saffron's dad putting the deed to the house in Saffron's name so that she couldn't be kicked out by her asshole mother).]]
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist:Edina and Patsy.

]] Becomes [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in the 2012 specials when its revealed Saffron at some point forgave her mother for this and has let her move back into the house, although this can still be considered a major MEH by fans.

** Justified as Edina works in a fashion and media orientated industry, from whence this trope was born in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodPudgy: Everyone treats Edina like she's grossly overweight (even Edina herself, as she has body image issues) but she actually has an average build.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Saffron; some see her as a figure who stays with her abusive mother not out of one-sided love but due to a fear of going it alone in the world and opting to take her mother's abuse in exchange for Edina supporting her financially.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, in the episodes where Saffy considers moving into the residential halls at the university, Edina really doesn't want her to move out.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: The finale from 2005, which has Saffron revealing that she is [[spoiler:the true owner of the house and kicks her evil mother and Patsy out on their asses]] after Edina strikes Saffron's daughter. The look on Edina's face as she realizes that she's completely fucked due to her impulsive action is a great final moment for the series.
** Not to mention Saffy physically ''throwing'' Patsy out of the house.
** Edina deserves the award for World's Most Neglectful Parent, but when she learns that [[DirtyOldMan the professor]] trying to con her daughter out of her virginity is married with kids, Eddy doesn't even miss a beat before giving him one hell of a punch. This is the same Eddy who has ''begged'' Saffron to get laid in the past. EvenEvilHasStandards.
