* {{Adorkable}}: His awkward attempts to pick up girls at Suzi's party and, later, his attempt to woo Stacey during the trip to Hollywood are oddly endearing.


* LoveAtFirstSight: More or less. She and Randy first see each other at the beach at a distance. Though neither makes overtures to the other, it's obvious that they're attracted to each other. When, at Suzi's party, Julie sees a completely smitten Randy shyly smiling at her, she smiles back and waits for him to make the first move.



* WackyParentSeriousChild: When she comes home the next day after spending all night with Randy, she is so confused by her parents' laid back reaction that practically asks them to punish her like Stacey's parents would have.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: For Stacey. It seems at first that he is pursuing Stacey merely because Julie brought her along for the trip to Hollywood, but he practically squeed when he spotted Stacey at the junior prom, indicating that he did actually become attracted her. When he is reunited with Stacey during the food fight at the prom, she cries in anguish at the sight of him.

* StalkingIsLove: A more wholesome variety; he breaks into Suzi's house in hopes of getting to catch up with Julie and convince her to leave the party with him. Later on, he shows up unannounced at the Richmans' health food store. After Julie reluctantly breaks up with him, he flits about the Valley, taking up part-time jobs where she and her friends hang out, just to get to see her.

* {{Sidekick}} / UndyingLoyalty: To Randy. He is unfailingly at Randy's side, save for the times when Randy and Julie are together. The penultimate example is when he saves Randy from getting into a fight with a car full of gang members after his post-breakup drunken bender; before any contact is made, Fred bum rushes Randy to safety and though he is upset that his best friend is crying over "some chick," he stays with Randy as the latter starts to recover. Later on, it is he who devises the plan to reunite Randy with Julie and "achieve the grandest form of retribution against the guy who kicked (Randy's) ass."
