* JerkSue: Amy. Seriously, there are probably unwed teenage mothers "with stillborn offspring" who bitch and moan less than she does!
** In season 4, this actually becomes a fact.
** Ricky. Who, despite being a 99.9% Jerkass, is apparently a great guy. And most of the blatantly and self-righteously misogynistic lines in the show come from him.

* DudeNotFunny: The scene in the 5th episode where the local news crew laughs at Grace for trying to defend from potential rapists. The show does explain it's not funny, but to even show in the first place is just sick.

* {{Glurge}}: The pious, patronizing message of the show. "See, we ''understand'' that you modern teenagers [[RebelliousSpirit are all rebellious, sinful children,]] but we want you to know that we ''care'' [[BitchInSheepsClothing about you and your problems]] and we want to ''help'' [[TheMissionary you]] and let you know you're not ''entirely'' [[UnfortunateImplications terrible people."]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Amy [[spoiler: abandoning John and leaving Ricky and her family behind to pursue her "dream" in New York]] in the finale. Also counts as a confusing BittersweetEnding.

* CompleteMonster: Ricky's dad - Bob Underwood. This "man" Robert "Bob" Underwood is one of the worst {{Abusive Parent}}s in this TeenDrama. A vile DomesticAbuser, he physically abused his son and would aslo sexually abuse him abused both [[MaritalRapeLicense his wife Nora]] and [[ParentalIncest his son Ricky]] for years. He also beat his wife, one time it is said by Nora many years before he was convicted and sent to prison.

* UnfortunateImplications: The show is rife with them. Listing them all would probably overload this page. But, just for fun, let's give it a shot:
** AdultsAreUseless
** AllGirlsWantBadBoys
** AllMenArePerverts
** AllWomenArePrudes or AllWomenAreLustful: [[ZigZaggedTrope It appears to randomly go back and forth between the two.]]
** BabiesMakeEverythingBetter
** BlackComedyRape: This was an [[AttemptedRape attempted rape]], but the way it was treated still fits the trope. Poor Grace...
** ButNotTooGay
** CampGay
*** Not every gay character is CampGay though. The gay teens(Griffin and Peter) don't appear to be this trope, but they're [[HideYourGays hardly ever seen anyway]], so it's a moot point.
** [[MandatoryMotherhood Childfree Is Not Allowed]]: Not even in high school apparently.
** DumbIsGood
** GoodAdulteryBadAdultery
** HormoneAddledTeenager
** HystericalWoman
** IJustWantToBeLoved
** ImAManICantHelpIt
** LonersAreFreaks
** LysistrataGambit
** MadonnaWhoreComplex
** MagicalNegro
** MagicalQueer
** AManIsAlwaysEager
** AManIsNotAVirgin
** MarsAndVenusGenderContrast
** MyGirlIsNotASlut
** NoBisexuals
** NoGuyWantsToBeChased
** OverprotectiveDad
** PetHomosexual
** SexIsEvil
** SpicyLatina: Adrian, obviously.
** TheUnfairSex
** IWillFindYou: While not an official trope, it should be pointed out that Ruben (Adrian's biological father) abandons his other family (recall Adrian was seeing her stepbrother, Ruben's stepson), to be with Adrian and mother. His other family [[PutOnABus conveniently]] disappears.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Amy revealing her pregnancy to Ashley in "I Feel Sick". The news actually affects [[DeadpanSnarker Ashley]] greatly, and she breaks down in tears after Amy leaves the room. The episode ends with Ashley giving Amy a hug, for the first (and possibly only) time in the series.
