Any time Rita appears in home videos or photos, Antonia Prebble is portraying her. Perfectly fitting, considering Loretta's apperance and personality. Ngaire even lampshades this, referring to Loretta as "Little Rita".
And I Must Scream: Munter's mother gets him so high on hash cakes that he is unable to move and witnesses Van getting her drunk and having sex with her.
Played more for laughs when Jethro breaks his leg. He is unable to stop Pascalle from robbing him, Loretta from setting up loads of alarm clocks to go off at the same time around his house or Treena raping him.
Bilingual Bonus: Tutaekuri, the campsite the Wests go to every Christmas, means dog shit in Maori.
Brother-Sister Incest: Wolf had a son with another woman. Nobody finds this out until his will turns up after he disappears. Unfortunately, Pascalle had already slept with him.
Chekhov's Gun: Thankfully subverted with Wayne's shotguns. Loretta finds them missing when she realises that Vaan has reached a Despair Event Horizon and is looking to kill himself after Aurora's death. Turns out, Wayne just went hunting.
Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Treena is perfectly willing to have sex with Jethro when he's unable to move out of his chair with a broken leg, then later drug him and accuse him of rape herself.
Executive Meddling: In universe example: Hayden adds cheap porn scenes to Loretta's movie in order to get it an Asian release. Unfortunately, Bruce sees this while on a business trip to Asia and dumps Pascalle as a result.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Gary Savage seems like just a regular Jerk Ass (bordering on Big Bad) until he become business partners with Cheryl. Suddenly, he's seen helping around the house and insisting that Loretta doesn't give up her baby. He has a personal reason for this. He's Wolf's half brother, had by their mother while Ted was in prison in The Seventies. She gave up Gary so as not to alert Ted.
Laser-Guided Karma: Nobody seems to be able to get away with anything on this show. Even minor fuckups have major consequences.
