I removed Spoiled Sweet as trope for Baby.

  • Spoiled Sweet: Baby is this. The film leads her to going through extraordinary lengths to help Penny and Johnny. Eventually, her willingness to do the right thing even at great personal cost makes a strong impression on Johnny.

In order to fit the archetype, the character must come from priviledged background and be pampered and naive. While Baby fits all of it, I don't think she's actually really spoiled (doesn't expect to be showered with money, dressed, cars etc). To me she seems just like a Nice Girl who happens to come from a rich family.
