YMMV / Between Failures

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Carol Graves, by far. Whether it's because of her body figure, her snarky attitude, or generally being the World's Most Beautiful Woman, she's easily one of the most well loved characters in the comic's fanbase.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Much of Thomas' advice.
  • Innocently Insensitive: While her "innocence" on the whole is debatable, Thomas' ex deciding to hold her book signing in the same store Thomas works at could definitely be considered insensitive.
    • Additionaly, doing things without asking others or considering their opinions seems to be a bad habit of hers, but then we only have one incident and the word of her ex as proof of that. Her husband, however, does offer some extra proof, saying that she's been steaming ahead with moving back to Kansas between her Pregnancy and her Mother falling ill. Plus, she also picks up a job application for the store - where, reminder, her bitter ex-boyfriend works - for either herself or her husband, seemingly with little regard that the staff, who are a tight knit group with Thomas as their linchpin, would have a problem, including after Nina reacted to her presence with outright hostility.
  • Les Yay: Jo can get a little touchy-feely with the other girls at times, but it's raised to another level when Jessica gets involved.
  • Moe: Brooksie as a whole, and Nina's overbite. Carol has her moments.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: The picture on Jolene's shirt is Athena, goddess of wisdom.
    • Ed Lincoln and Reggie Boothe hate each other. In fact, this was lampshaded in a later strip.
