Tropers: Lucymae 2
  • Achilles' Heel: Jeffrey suffers from Osgood-Schlatter Disease in his left knee. Seth also possesses it.
    • Teddy has had ear problems his entire life, which Jeffrey and his mother speculate led to his antisocial behavior later on in his teenage years.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Jeffrey suffered from this for a long time before ultimately entering something of a committed relationship with Ashleigh during the summer between their freshmen and sophomore years of high school.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Averted, all members of the JBMC are straight, despite many gay jokes.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Daniel falls into this category while Robert remains borderline.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Jeffrey and Dallas finally receive their red drumline headbands after the first full run of four of their five movements on the last full day of their four-week band camp experience.
  • Berserk Button: If you're a close friend of Branden's, don't call him lazy.
    • Jeffrey is a joker most of the time, but if you don't treat him seriously whenever he wants to be taken seriously, prepare for hell.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Jeffrey is well mannered a lot of the time when he's not being sarcastic, but he skips being mad after he gets annoyed and goes straight to being pissed, often cursing excessively.
  • Big Eater: Several examples, such as Teddy, Jeffrey, and Branden.
  • Black Comedy: Despite most of Jeffrey's friends being moral people, their jokes often revolve around rape, racism, suicide, genocide, murder, sexism, homosexuality, depression, the Illuminati, and even satanism among other things.
  • Blue Eyes: Jeffrey displays a pair that have been called beautiful outside of his family.
    • Innocent Blue Eyes: Ashleigh displays a beautiful pair of these, being one of the most moral people Jeffrey knows.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Tyler is more free spirited and laid back than Sean, and arguably does just as good a job, if not a better one, at teaching his kids.
  • Buxom Is Better: It is often acknowledged that Natalie has the biggest rack in the band.
  • Catchphrase: Jeffrey commonly keeps running jokes going that eventually evolve into this, such as "necks" being the punchline to a So Bad, It's Good pun. He also coins idioms on the spot and tries to keep them going, such as his saying "If it ain't bread don't fix it."
    • Teddy, being Jeffrey's brother, also has a habit of creating idioms that supposedly everyone says, and tries to pass off "Apples and oranges, my friend" and "Benjamin Franklin" as common sayings.
    • Everyone in the JBMC crowd has at least one of these, such as Kyle's "I'll kink your cake" or Luke's "squids".
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Jeffrey slips into this a lot of the time, being a teenager. Luke also qualifies as well, as do Michael and Garrett.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Ashleigh displays this when she gets bubbly. Steven may also be an appropriate example, as well as Tommy and Nathan.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Jeffrey and Dalton are unfortunate users of this trope on their friends when tired. Daniel and Luke are also not strangers to it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jeffrey falls into this category, as do a majority of his friends and family. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't slip an occasional sarcastic remark by every now and then.
  • Fanboy: Jeffrey is a fan of quite a few things, most notably Gravity Falls, Futurama, How I Met Your Mother, Sly Cooper, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, etc.
  • The Determinator: Jeffrey can occasionally pull this off if he can overcome his laziness.
    • A notable example would be Jerrica of the drumline. Joey is also implied to be one of these.
  • Fatal Flaw: Jeffrey's laziness and lack of self discipline often gets in the way of his abilities and/or opportunities to do great things or have fun. When it comes to his music, triplet rolls are the most apparent weakness of his.
    • Branden's immaturity often lights his short fuse and leads to angry rants or tantrums.
  • Fiery Red Head: Averted with Teddy, who's a moderately mellow person.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Jeffrey has a plethora of tie-dye clothing that is not limited to shirts.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Peyton and the other Seth.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Ashleigh possesses this.
    • Jeffrey's mom is also extremely moral.
  • Heroic BSOD: Jeffrey has had a couple panic attacks due to thinking too much about mortality and his future. He also suffers from the occasional angst overload.
  • Hidden Depths: Jeffrey is a very emotional and angst-ridden teen, partly because he never says all of what he has to say. Seth is also implied to display this trope.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jeffrey shifts into this sometimes, but maybe not quite as much as Daniel.
    • Leffingwell also may be an example. Despite his occasionally cruel attitude, he does indeed want what's best for the band.
  • Leitmotif: "It's the End of the World as We Know It" became Jeffrey's after he memorized the lyrics and sang it for the eighth grade talent show. "Careless Whisper" is also commonly associated with the JBMC crowd.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Jeffrey and Aimee; both have acknowledged it.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Jeffrey, possibly due to his constantly colorfully flamboyant wardrobe, has been mistaken for gay on several occasions. Interestingly enough, there is a gay Jeffrey in the band, though he's an entirely different person.
  • Mr. Imagination: Jeffrey has shades of this, despite it being much more prominent when he was younger.
  • Nice Guy: Jeffrey falls into this, and most of his other friends do as well.
  • No Indoor Voice: Peyton is often called out for this.
  • Old Shame: Jeffrey looks at his three early Weebly websites as this, and even poked fun at them on his current blog.
  • Only Sane Man: Natalie may play this role in the front ensemble crowd, though she may share it with Delaney (and Christina has her moments). When it comes to the JBMC, Dalton is most likely the primary suspect, and Jonny and Jeffrey shift in and out.
  • Out of Focus: Being real life, people commonly float in and out. Some notable examples may be Megan, Madison, Morgan, Emma, Brayden, both of the Bens, Garrett, and Elijah. He also sees a majority of his cousins less often, most notably Baylee, Jamie, and Johnathan, who he usually only sees once or twice a year. Maggie and Gus may also qualify for this trope.
  • Put on a Bus: Over the course of his life, Jeffrey has had quite a few friends move away, including Aimee, Nikki, Sebastian, Kennedy, Tim, Derek, and Lexi. His cousin Kameron is also seen scarcely after leaving for college.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Jeffrey's current puppy, Bonnie, as well as his former dog Lucy Mae.
  • Ruptured Appendix: Jeffrey had a case of appendicitis during the summer between his seventh and eighth grade years at middle school. Jonny also had the same problem in the middle of his seventh grade year.
  • Squick: Whenever Bonnie eats her own poop.
  • Sweet Tooth: Jeffrey possesses one of these.
  • Team Mom: Natalie is this to the front ensemble crowd.
  • Those Two Guys: Quite a few duos qualify, such as Tommy and Nathan, Peyton and Brendan, and even Tyler and Sean.
    • Jeffrey himself has been part of this trope with every one of his friends at least once, such as Matthew in seventh grade language and ninth grade math, and possibly Dalton in the ninth grade front ensemble.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Jeffrey is a chicken wing man. Among his other favorite foods, there is also trifle, cake, burgers, etc.
    • Teddy's may be chicken, though he's a lover of all meats, most notably steak.
    • Jonny and his raisinets.
    • Branden is quite fond of pizza at the JBMC meetings.
  • True Companions: The JBMC: Jeffrey, Jonny, Robert, Seth, Dalton, Branden, Kyle, Daniel, Jacob, and Luke.
  • When She Smiles: Ashleigh displays a beautiful smile.
