** In Chapter 15, as Olympia and Oona can't speak directly to each other and Otis has to be a messenger, Olympia laments, "Why must my life be a plot device?"
** Chapter 18 is basically this trope condensed into a single chapter, as Olympia, Oona and Olympia read the end credits, beginning with this exchange:
--> '''Olympia:''' Oh come on, how cliche is that? The couple gets back together and dances off into the moonlight. I'm telling you, this is a bad fanfiction. Why don't we just play "The Time of My Life" and roll the end credits?
--> '''Otis:''' Olympia, I'm pretty sure that's a song from the 1980s written for a movie set in the 196-
--> ''["The Time of My Life" begins to play]''
--> '''Olympia:''' Ha! ''[points at the ceiling]'' I bet this is the author's way of attempting to add in a clever sort of end-credit thank-you section...[[BuffySpeak thingy!]]
--> '''Oona:''' ''[awkward laugh]'' No, it's just that I hijacked the DJ booth. My [[{{IPhony}} [=OddPod=]]] must be on shuffle.

--> '''Oona:''' Hmm?

** In Chapter 16, Olive and Oscar both realize that entering a more serious relationship with each other would mean that they would have to quit their jobs at Odd Squad, and neither one of them wish to do that for the sake of the other.

Oswald, Oscar's assistant, also has a role in the plan, but it's relatively minor.

in ThePlan.the Editor's Note.
--> ''Why do I'' waste ''my time writing fanfiction for a kid's show? Because a story needs to be told. Because it brings happiness, if only momentarily, to people who don't want to smile. Because'' Series/OddSquad ''is a show about the value of friendship and teamwork, even when you just want to fight your own battle. Because a story has the power to make someone laugh two seconds after they've cried, to feel every emotion you're capable of, to'' think. ''Because it makes me feel good. Because it sparks my imagination. Because I can't sleep. Because it's a hobby and a passion.'' Because the only way anyone will ever know the full story is if we tell it.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWereHoldingYouBack: Olive doesn't want to enter a relationship with Oscar again because she feels that she is holding him back, stating that the two of them breaking up was what allowed Oscar to become President of the Scientists.

Added DiffLines:

* XanatosSpeedChess: Subverted.

to:

* BackingAwaySlowly: This is the unisonant reaction of Oprah, Olympia and Otis when Oona tells them that by tugging on her lab coat's lapels and triggering an InstantCostumeChange, she hasn't had to wash her clothes in months. They back up right into their respective dressing rooms.

** Later on, he pointedly tells Oona that he and Olive are going to a 50s Night and she needs to make outfits for him and his partner. Once again, Olive never manages to catch on.

As it turns out, he's not wearing pants, which she informs him of, and he quickly rushes back into his office to change.
* CrazyPrepared: There just so happens to be molds of everyone's ears for use in making the earpieces. The molds are taken monthly for some reason, but it's convenient enough for Oona to make an earpiece out of.



* DressedInLayers: Oscar somehow makes himself numerous outfits, and wears them all to show Oprah so she can choose which one. She ends up choosing the same one that Danny Zuko wears to the fair in ''Film/{{Grease}}''.



* GratuitousFrench: When gifting a badge to Oliver, Olive tells him that there are three options for configuring the badge in French. Once Otto finds out about the pair's meeting in the Boiler Room, Oliver greets him and asks how he's doing in French, and him and Olive converse in French for a bit before Olive translates for Otto.
--> '''Olive:''' You have got to learn French, Otto! We work in Montreal! A lot of our agents and clients speak French. In fact 56% of everyone here is bilingual and about 67% prefer French. Besides, I can't always be here to translate. That's the third time this week.
--> '''Otto:''' I know, I know! I'm working on it.
--> ''[Olive raises an eyebrow]''
--> '''Otto:''' [[ImmediateSelfContradiction Okay, so I'm not]] ''[[ImmediateSelfContradiction exactly]]'' [[ImmediateSelfContradiction working on it.]] But I ''am'' listening to the French translations of Soundcheck's songs! You gotta give me points for that!

Otis is quick to ask Olympia if they're really going to put their own lives in the hands of such an incompetent driver.



* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: At the end of Chapter 6, Otis explains to Olympia that "this isn't just some fanfiction that you can change without hurting anyone".

** In Chapter 10, Olympia is insistent that the story feels like a bad fanfiction and that Oona giving herself more work on top of the work she already has is a cheap plot device. She even [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] at one point by saying that she knows "this isn't just a fanfiction".



** Later on, when Olympia offers her help in assisting Oona with her duties in regards to ThePlan, Oona shoots her down and says that she's fine. Olympia is persistent, however, and doesn't let up.
--> '''Olympia:''' Oona, I've worked with you nearly every day for months now. If I've learned just one thing in that time, it's that you're only this calm when you're completely, and I mean ''completely,'' freaking out. Now come on, I'll go get Otis, we'll order a cheese-free pizza, and all work together on this.
--> '''Oona:''' No, really Olympia, I'll be fine. I'm sure you've got things to-
--> '''Olympia:''' Look at me, Oona. You remember that day Ms. O gave me a room and [[SanitySlippage I descended into mathness]] because I couldn't say no? Well, you have the exact opposite problem, you can't ''stop'' saying no. Now, if you don't want to descend into mathness and, y'know, ruin everything, I suggest that ''just'' this once you say yes and let me help.



* ProportionalAging: Oliver asks Olive about how aging works in Odd Squad, since some Maintenance workers don't receive badges with the capability to make their wearers age slowly. Olive offers to explain it to him the next day if he meets her in the Boiler Room for lunch tomorrow.

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Otto requires ''three'' bottles of hair gel for his hair to get it to look like that of a greaser's. He starts by taking one bottle of hair gel and dumping the entire contents of it on his head, and by the time he's done, his head is more full of gel than it is actual hair.
--> '''Olive:''' You know, I think the entire hair product industry could survive on just sales to you and Soundcheck.
--> '''Otto:''' Probably.


Added DiffLines:

* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: In Chapter 13, Olive and Otto praise two agents for stopping a villain who is mistakenly referred to by Otto as "Ping-Pong Paster" before Olive tells him his name is actually "Fred Who Really Hates Ping-Pong".

* TheyJustDontGetIt: Olympia and Oona attempt to explain what {{Shipping}} is to Otis by bringing up romantic couples from various pieces of media like ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', and boil it down to the simple definition of "when a person wants two people to be a couple". He doesn't get it, and two hours later, Olympia's ponytail has come undone, Oona's lab coat is hanging from a beam on the ceiling (somehow), and one of the latter's suspender straps has broken. Humorously, how Otis manages to grasp the concept is by watching the rather-famous three-second GIF of Vladmir from ''WesternAnimation/Tangled'' making two ceramic unicorns kiss, stating that he's a visual learner.

* OneSteveLimit: Averted in a rather subtle way. Olive, the Odd Squad Director of the Montreal precinct, meets Olive'''r''', a young Maintenance worker, but "Oliver" is commonly known as the male counterpart to "Olive", making it somewhat the same name if only separated by just one letter.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: In Chapter 5, Oona uses Olympia's computer to explain to Otis what shipping is. Olympia freaks out, thinking that Oona has hacked into her Website/{{Pinterest}} account, but Oona tells her that she just put in Olympia's password. When Olympia asks the Scientist how she figured out her password, she points to the pictures of Olive and Otto that Olympia has framed and enshrined on a nearby filing cabinet.


Added DiffLines:

* ProductPlacement: This fanfiction does feature [[BlandNameProduct Bland-Name Products]], but also features real-life brands like Website/{{Pinterest}} and even real-life bands like Music/{{Nirvana}}.
* ProportionalAging: Oliver asks Olive about how aging works in Odd Squad, since some Maintenance workers don't receive badges with the capability to make their wearers age slowly. Olive offers to explain it to him the next day if he meets her in the Boiler Room for lunch tomorrow.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScream: Oona, already overloaded with things that she has to do in addition to creating outfits for Oscar, Olive, and Otto, hits her limit when Oprah asks her to make alterations on her outfit. She produces a gadget (the Personal-Soundproof-Room-inator) from her {{Hammerspace}} spine, zaps her head to create a foam orb around it, and lets out a blood-curdling scream that is in full hearing range of Oprah despite the intent of the foam orb being soundproof.


Added DiffLines:

* SeriousBusiness: Olympia and Oona are so into shipping that they consider it important enough to wage ''battle'' over it. When Oona's [[invoked]] OneTruePairing of Olive/Oscar ends up being the victor, she treats Olympia as though she's suffered the loss of a loved one, and in order to make Olympia accept another pairing besides her OTP, Oprah and Otto decide to show her the footage of when Olive and Oscar nearly drowned in the Boiler Room,
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Olympia mistakenly believes that Olive and Otto are dating. When Otto gets wind of this belief, he becomes disgusted and explains that he and Olive are LikeBrotherAndSister.
* ShipperOnDeck: Both Olympia and Oona lean into this trope ''hard.'' Olympia believes that Olive and Otto are dating even though their relationship is strictly [[LikeBrotherAndSister sibling-like]], while Oona ships Olive and Oscar. Once Otis gets a firm grip on what shipping is, he confides in Oona that he ships Olive and Oscar as well.
* [[invoked]] ShipToShipCombat: In-universe. Olympia and Oona constantly butt heads over whether Olive/Otto or Olive/Oscar is the better ship, to the point where they end up having a ShowdownAtHighNoon over which is the superior ship.
* ShoutOut: A few of the couples that Olympia and Otis bring up when describing shipping to Otis are [[Franchise/StarWars Han Solo and Princess Leia]], [[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice Lizzie and Darcy]], and [[Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman]].
** At the start of Olympia's and Oona's battle in Chapter 6, the theme song from ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' is noted to be playing in the background.
* ShowdownAtHighNoon: Oona and Olympia have one of these as part of their [[invoked]] ShipToShipCombat, with Oona brandishing a projector as her weapon while Olympia wields a binder, while Otis, Otto and Oprah look on.
--> '''Otis:''' Oh dear, we're in for it now.
--> '''Otto:''' In for what?
--> '''Oprah:''' I warned you that this would happen if we got both of them involved.
--> '''Otto:''' What would happen? ''What's happening?!''


Added DiffLines:

* TheyJustDontGetIt: Olympia and Oona attempt to explain what {{Shipping}} is to Otis by bringing up romantic couples from various pieces of media like ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', and boil it down to the simple definition of "when a person wants two people to be a couple". He doesn't get it, and two hours later, Olympia's ponytail has come undone, Oona's lab coat is hanging from a beam on the ceiling (somehow), and one of the latter's suspender straps has broken. Humorously, how Otis manages to grasp the concept is by watching the rather-famous three-second GIF of Vladmir from ''WesternAnimation/Tangled'' making two ceramic unicorns kiss, stating that he's a visual learner.


Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Odd Squad agents dating is a normal occurrence that happens every few years -- two agents start going out, one of them transfers or quits, and then they break up. It's so commonplace that Oprah tells Otis, Olympia and Oona that under normal circumstances, Odd Squad wouldn't get involved.
