* WereStillRelevantDammit: Averted. Despite the fact that the comic began in 1997, and the creators haven't raised a teenager in ''quite'' a while, they're still able to perfectly capture teenage and parent life without feeling like you're watching [[{{ComicStrip/Blondie}} a rerun from a really old sitcom.]]
** Your mileage is definitely going to vary on that one. Another, less charitable take might be that the strip is a printed slurry of lazy, decades-old stereotypes and a 60-something man's Oedipal Complex.

* UnfortunateImplications: The infamous "Signs of the Apocalypse" strip. The strip has [[HiddenDepths Walt waxing eloquently]] on his opinion of Music/FiftyCent 's career arc. Connie, by contrast, stands there with a [[StepfordSmiler glazed, hollow look in her eyes]] and an unsettling smile and only says "Ditto!" That's right, guys, women not only should [[ValuesDissonance unquestioningly agree with their husbands]], but they shouldn't even elaborate on their feelings, am I right?
** Given that Connie is unquestionably the dominant partner in their relationship, that's reading a hell of a lot into a facial expression.
*** Besides, the point is they ''are'' out of character. It's a ''sign of the apocalypse'', after all.

* TearJerker: Connie sadly looking at Jeremy, while imagining herself "unzipping" his body to reveal his happy childhood self, who proceeds to play with his mom. She looks at the current Jeremy and sighs. Mothers still write in telling the creators it's their [[http://content.comicskingdom.net/Zits/Zits.20100131_large.gif favorite strip]].

* HarsherInHindsight: One of the earliest strips is Jeremy musing on how his generation didn't have the life changing events his parents' did (such as the Kennedy assassination and the moon landing). This was before 9/11.
This list shows the last 10 events of 17. Show all.
