There's a number of lines with multiple tropes, which is now discouraged by TV Tropes' current standards. Can we decide on what should be what?

For the record, we've got:

Blood from the Mouth: Vernon Rowley when he dies in the Season 2 premiere. He's Dead, Jim: Kate to Betty when Betty attempts to rouse Kate's father.

Butch Lesbian / Lipstick Lesbian: Betty and Teresa, respectively.

Humble Hero / Ignorant of the Call: Betty. Though Lorna sees her as a role model and Kate outright says she's a hero, Betty doesn't believe she's anything special. She's even chosen to be the "face" of Victory Munitions, much to her chagrin.

Interrupted Declaration of Love / Moment Killer: Betty and Kate, interrupted by Gladys and Lorna.

Power Trio / Town Girls / Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Betty, Gladys, and Kate.

Wham Episode/HSQ:


It is my understanding that for the last one, the preferred trope name is "Wham Episode" now, with "HSQ" no longer really in evidence because it's been overused for out-of-verse and in-verse "holy shit" remarks. Now fixed.

I've now moved or changed all the struck-off ones. If anyone has any concerns let me know.

  • Spoiled Sweet: Gladys, who is also Non-Idle Rich after declining an office job at Victory Munitions to work on the floor with the other girls.

Spoiled Sweet is now in TRS and we are trying to clean-up the trope. Characters who fit this trope must be optimistic, sheltered, naive, from sheldered gackground and be genuinely nice to other people who are less popular and less priviledged than her. If Gladys fits, please move her back on the main page, but improve the example context. Thanks.

When exactly did Gladys deduce Betty is a lesbian? I can't remember when/if any moment stood out that signified that.

I've been wondering that myself. How does Gladys know?

It looks like Word of God is that as of 1943, Gladys *is* aware of Betty's orientation and is not concerned about it.
