Added DiffLines:

** How the story kicks off: after his parents call him up asking if he knows where Ford is, [[RageBreakingPoint Stan tells them off, says Ford "can drop off the face of the Earth for all [he cares]", and hangs up]]. One quick glance at a photo of the two of them as he tries to calm down forces Stan to redial, asking when they last talked to Ford.

Added DiffLines:

* GiveMeBackMyWallet: In Fiddleford's Log, he says Stan became someone he could trust but not with his wallet. Page 2 ends with an unimpressed Fiddleford making a "give it back" move with his hand while Stan sheepishly returns the wallet. WordOfGod says Fiddleford "brings at least one decoy wallet" and "Stan usually takes it just to mess with him (most of the time...)." Word of God also says "Fiddleford's become nearly impossible to be robbed by anyone else".


** The only canon characters to be referenced by their names are Stan, Ford, Fiddleford and Bill.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Prior to the point when this fic diverges from canon, Stan and Ford's High School Principal thought Ford would become a millionaire and the best Stan could accomplish was being the one to scrape barnacles off a taffy shop by the boardwalk. Nowadays Stan is a millionaire and Ford lives in a ruined cabin and wears rags. The irony is bigger because Stan's fortune started when he helped Fiddleford [=McGucket=] sell an invention Ford [[ItWillNeverCatchOn dismissed as a waste of time]].

Added DiffLines:

* NominalImportance:
** Stan's assistant only appeared in Page 01 but [=Orangephoenix6=] gave him a name[[note]]Harvard "Harv" Oakland[[/note]] out of hope the character will be used later in the story.
** The only canon characters to be referenced by their names are Stan, Ford, Fiddleford and Bill.

*** Earlier, before he even finds out about Ford's current state, Stan considers just leaving and lying to his mom about Ford's whereabouts. Meanie basically guilt trips him into sticking around.


** If part 11 of "Fiddleford's Log" is any indication, either Fiddleford has drawn up the blueprints for the memory gun, or has only thought them up. Keep in mind, this means he hasn't made it.



* VitriolicBestBuds: Fiddleford fully calls Stan one of his best friend, but is certainly aware of Stan's past dealings as a conman and pickpocket attempts (though WordOfGod does mention that this means that virtually no one else can pickpocket Fiddleford because of experience. Furthermore, Stan is well-aqauinted with the [=McGucket=] family, with Mrs. [=McGucket=] even calling him "Uncle Stan" when talking to her son. [[spoiler: Stan also adamantly refuses to sell out Fiddleford to Bill]].

Added DiffLines:

* RecruitedFromTheGutter: Stan Pines was a homeless grifter until Fiddleford [=McGucket=], who was desperately looking for a way to sell his invention, recruited Stan's help just because Stan claimed all it took was "the right sales pitch" and he could sell it "in a snap". They now run "one of the most successful companies in the country".

Added DiffLines:

* TalkerAndDoer: Stan is the talker and Fiddleford is the doer. Stan can talk people into buying Fiddleford's inventions and Fiddleford can make products that are so good Stan doesn't need to lie about them in advertisements.
