These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Which was rather amusing because the news reporter was stalling for an expected story and at that moment was commenting that nothing noteworthy was going on.
At the beginning of "Welcome to the Club", a small grey bird is heard trumpeting like an elephant.
Ear Worm: "Vegemite, Vegemite, we spread it on everything, it always tastes just right, Vegemite, Vegemite, Yum Yum morning, noon, and night!"
Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The episode where Squid makes friends with an antisocial computer geek—don't hang out with them, they have no life!
This is especially bizarre; because Sammy acted just like Oliver when he was first introduced. But to give the show a bit of credit, the crew accepts Oliver and find something he's good at: Keeping score and time.
Jerkass Sue: Otto, a completely rude and egotistical snot who constantly gets excused due to his supreme extreme sports abilities.
Actually, his Jerkass tendencies are heavily acknowledged. In fact, they are a major part of his character.
Similarly Reggie sometimes gets a free pass for being rather self righteous and catty. Even more ironic due to her being the character most likely to call out Otto.
Jerkass Woobie: Lars in the episode "Falsely Alarmed". It's no secret the guy is a complete douchebag, Pet the Dog moment(s) aside, but really, he got a week of community service for something he didn't do. He was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Forum threads asking posters to recount where they were and what they were doing, national-disaster style, "when the Squid totally beefed it".
"Stop Having Fun" Guys: Otto has always taken extreme sports seriously, but this gets taken Up to Eleven when he tries to become a professional athlete just after his 11th birthday.
Strawman Has a Point: One early episode has the city council ban stuff like bike-riding, skateboarding, rollerblading, etc on the pier. While it's pretty obvious that they're Straw-Moral Guardians and Merv is clearly exaggerating his injury, they actually do have a point that it can be dangerous due to how crowded it is. (And in fact, it should be common sense do not skate around crowded areas with loads of foot-traffic.)
