* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Lord in heaven, Mady. She was especially bratty in the recent "Sextuplets Turn Ten" two-parter, but was also extremely whiny and bratty before then. For example, when her parents took her and the other kids to an American Girl store, she could only cry and focus on the fact that she didn't like surprises.
* BrokenBase
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Due in part to the fact that he's the most recognizable of the sextuplets because he's the only one of them wearing glasses, Aaden has a pretty sizable fanbase.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: ''TheSoup'', for a while, was making hay with an AlternativeCharacterInterpretation of the show with Jon as a {{henpecked husband}} to needlessly bossy Kate -- one skit took an argument over coupons and ended it with him [[DrivenToSuicide committing suicide]]. As it turns out, the marriage [[http://www.tvguide.com/News/Jon-Kate-Plus-1005820.aspx was indeed a miserable one]], and while ''TheSoup'' is irreverent by nature and is still keeping up with the show, they joked in one episode that it's "just kind of sad now".
* InternetBackdraft: Trust us, flame wars against the show got so bad that "Television Without Pity" has banned ANY discussion of J&K on their forums.
* JerkassWoobie: Jon certainly engaged in some douchebag behavior of his own, but when one sees the kind of shit he had to put up with it's not at all surprising.
* NightmareFuel:
** The show itself, especially for young couples starting their families.
** Averted with the kids, who ''love'' costumed mascots and practically attacked the Phillies' mascot.
* TearJerker: Kate's interview prior to the last episode.
* UnfortunateImplications: Any time the show tries to handle race. Cue Kate acting like she knows more about Jon's culture than he does and the kids debating over who's the "most" Asian. Let's just cook some Japanese food, because that's close enough, and stick chopsticks in the girls' hair. It's educational!
* TheWoobie: The kids. All of them.
