Added DiffLines:

* InherentlyAttractiveProfession: Jess becomes FriendsWithBenefits with a guy named Sam, but things get complicated when she finds out he's not only a doctor, but a pediatrician (meaning he likes kids in addition to all the other things that make doctors desirable) and winds up actually falling for him, which drives him off.


* TookALevelInDumbass: While Nick was a lazy and impulsive manchild, he was the show's StraightMan, but later on his quirks and slobbish traits were flanderized and he became the biggest buffoon of the group. He did still become a successfull writer and gained quite a fanbase for his work.



* TookALevelInKindness: In later episodes, he gets far less egotistical and obnoxious and grows to probably the most level-headed and stable gentleman especially his relationship with Cece flourishing.

* FragileFlower: It isn't necessarily crying (though there's a lot of that), but it takes very little to get him to break down one way or another.

Added DiffLines:

* DefrostingIceQueen: Starts as strictly professional and distant from Winston (probably not helped by Nick and Coach's antics worrying about him) but he slowly coaxes her out of her shell over time.
