- Anvilicious: Corporations = death of creative ideas. Even without Jhonen saying it, you can tell this is him burning any leftover anger at Nickelodeon.
- Crosses The Line...Way More Than Twice: But what were you expecting?
Devi: OH GOD! EDDIE? Talk, Eddie! Let me know you're not dead! C'mon Eddie! C'MON!!
Devi: Oh thank god! Come on! Keep talking Eddie!! Stay with me! STAY WITH ME!!
Eddie: Can I touch your butt?
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Devi and Tenna's friendship moment at the end. Given how much shit the latter's been putting up with since the former started having issues (Hell, in this comic alone), it's really amazing that Tenna's stuck by Devi like she has. Especially since the creator is Vasquez.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Vasquez, having written a thinly-veiled metaphor for the pains of working in the corporate-driven animation industry and how much easier things were when he was working for himself, proceeded to write a handful more comics before going on to design characters for a Disney show before going on to make a pilot for one himself, write episodes of Bravest Warriors, and team up with Titmouse to adapt Squee! and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. He's also open to the idea of bringing Zim back.
- Jerkass Woobie: Yes, Devi is being mentally assaulted by a parasite her murderer once-date accidentally gave her. Yes, she is under a lot of stress. Yes, she is often an utter bitch to her best friend, laughs with her at the idea of some random dude setting himself on fire, throws a little girl and stomps a cat to death, and spams F-bombs. Read the comic and there's more! What. The. Fuck.
- Reality Subtext: Devi, much like Vasquez was at the time, transitions from creating art for herself to doing it for a corporation, and finds herself irritated at the constant demand for revisions that make no sense with her creative vision and are introduced entirely to appeal to certain demographics.
