YMMV: My Family And Me
  • Accidental Innuendo:
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
  • Bizarro Episode: Every Halloween Episode was this.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: When Davina and Cynthia coming to blows and Davina starts torturing her by chasing her around the house and throwing food at each other.
    • When the Mayhan siblings rescue Bailey from "Stanley" in time and the police showed up to arrest him.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: It has a bunch of heartwarming moments.
    • The family's group hugs, especially in the finale.
    • Midge and Farrah saying their heartfelt goodbyes before going their seperate ways.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song itself. Even the lyrics are catchy:
    My family and me, my sisters and me, my brothers and me and my parents are we...
    • The music video with Farrah, Roxanne and Lacey dancing and rapping to their song "Work It Out".
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Roxanne and Lacey.
    • Marianne.
    • Isaac Van Buren.
  • Hollywood Homely: Before her huge makeover, Marianne was this unattractive, plain jane who hid her face under the books.
    • After Midge makes her wish that she was just like her sister in the episode "Just Like Davina", Davina, who's known for her good looks, was this fat, repulsive-looking trainwreck who no one could bear to look at.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Cynthia.
  • Les Yay: This happens frequently between Midge and Farrah. Seriously, there's no doubt that these two gal pals are absolutely crazy about each other and are totally inseperable. They share every Friendship Moment in almost every episode.
    • There was the final scene of the episode where Midge and Farrah are at the New Kids on the Block concert and their slow dancing with each other arm and arm.
    • In the three-parter "New Best Friend", the two girls decided to spend time apart from each other because of the lack of friends they have. Midge gives the "it's not you, it's me" speech to Farrah, prompting Farrah to ask this:
    Farrah: Midge, are you...breaking up with me?
    Midge: No, No, No. It's just that we need to take a break from each other. Temporarily.
    • During that same episode, a series of montages are shown with the two spending time with their new B.F.F.'s. The two are having a great time with them, but are actually missing each other and can't thinking about each other.
    • Even in part 3 of "New Best Friend", Midge is singing a what appears to be a love song to Farrah at the football game, but it's more of a friendship song. Farrah joins in singing the song and the two exchange apologies afterwards. The two share a really long hug with everyone at the game saying "Awwwwww!!!"
    • Midge tells Farrah that she loves her more than she loves Anson. Farrah gushed when Midge said that. She even says that she loves her more than she loves Todd.
    • The finale showed a whole lot of this when Midge and Farrah are spending their entire last week together before they take off and start their new careers. The two are sharing their little heart-to-heart moments and reminiscing about their time they've had together over the course of their 9-year long friendship. The last scene of the finale took the cake when they're saying goodbye to each other. They share a very long hug and even a little kiss...ON THE LIPS!!!!
  • Moe: Bailey.
  • Narm
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Farrah's overly cheerful disposition.
  • Tear Jerker: Anson leaving and saying good-bye to Midge and Farrah in the Season 2 finale.
    • Farrah and her mom are bonding with each other by looking at old photos of her deceased father. The scene becomes very emotional when they start to think about how much they miss him and shedding tears.
    • The finale was the biggest tear jerker of all time. With the three eldest Mayhan siblings leaving, it made everyone teared up because it would be the last time the family would ever be together. Midge and Farrah's heartfelt goodbyes was this, too. Knowing that these two have been best friends since eighth grade and that their friendship is alot more stronger than anything else.
  • The Woobie: Eden, Midge's cousin. You have to feel sorry for the poor little rich girl. Despite living a rich and glamorous life, her life isn't all that rich and glamorous. Her parents aren't that too much involved in their daughter's life and her friends aren't really her friends. They're just using her friendship because of her wealth and are taking advantage of her money. The girl has it pretty rough back home. Someone please give this girl a hug and be her best friend.
