* IdiotBall: Firmly clutched by anyone involved in a plot involving Aunt Babe. She has managed to blackmail the Cokers, who have never heard of a fancy dress party, with a single photo of Les dressed as Christine. Abi is, for some reason, intimidated into working with her again despite Babe already blaming being locked in a freezer on her sister Sylvie and otherwise having no evidence. The only reason she's in Walford at all is through somehow being forgiven for running a baby farm. Yet she has the square wrapped around her finger despite having no friends and no advantage.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: It's easy to tell which episode was the first one written after Fatboy's first on screen appearance actually aired: It's the one where he inexplicably stopped using street lingo for every single line.

** Particularly, there was supposed to be a storyline where the Ferreira family received escalating abuse from their father up until the point they eventually accidentally killed him in a struggle and then covered it up... except Dan's actor was deported for having an incorrect visa during a day of filming. Rushed for time and having already booked out the rest of the family for the next few weeks of filming, they came up with a kidney transplant storyline on the fly which took up half of the next 6 weeks of screen time and is widely considered to be incredibly boring.
