* CommonalityConnection: Winslow wonders why they are friends, when they disagree on everything. Carmen observes they do, on one thing: they like being friends.

* ExplosiveBreeder: Rabbits, of course.
* FireAndBrimstoneHell: Where you can find a sincere supporter of Kevin
* FollowTheLeader: After ''La Cucaracha'' and of course ''CalvinAndHobbes'' (with switched personalities).
** And Winslow's life-long dream of flying. If that's not blatantly copying Opus, I don't know what it is.
* FriendshipMoment: Winslow hugs Carmen when she's down (and the panel is grayscale).
* GoneHorriblyRight: The solar-powered drone works right the first time.
* HumansAreBastards: Opie the alien calls off his invasion of Earth because he doesn't want to catch the self-destructive thing we have.

For example, in one story Winslow refused to let Carmen buy football cards just because she's a conservative; meanwhile, she pointed out that the football ''players'' are far worse ("drug abuser... deadbeat dad... adulterer...!").
