- Abhorrent Admirer: Mordecai does not like Starla back and is quite disgusted by her, only going out with her in an attempt to get her back with Muscle Man
- Fan Disservice and Squick: We have Muscle Man's Shower of Angst (shown multiple times), Starla's Gainaxing and the two of them making out at the end of the episode. Cartoon Network Australia edited out most of it (Rigby crashing into Starla's breasts and the making out part at the end), but it did nothing to tone it down. Lampshaded by RigbyRigby:This was the most disturbing day of my life.
- In Love with Your Carnage: "I think you look foxy when you break things."
- Noodle Incident: According to Muscle Woman's tramp stamp, one of her past lovers was named "Steve." We don't find out who he is or what happened to him.
- Shower of Angst: Muscle Man after Starla dumps him
- Unstoppable Rage: Starla after Mordecai breaks up with her.
