* CrankyNeighbor: Tony Eyes isn't just cranky, he's annoying and a pretty lousy neighbor overall.
* DreadfulMusician: Tommy La-La. Also Tony Eyes.
* FishEyeLens: The whole episode at Aunt Song's is filmed in this manner, to capture the surreal feeling Troy haves about this upscale suburb living.
* GratuitousSpanish: Briefly, with Minnie and the bodega owner
* IllGirl: Carolyn and [[spoiler: she later dies]]
* IronicName: Peanut is noted to be a big girl and she is
