!!''Flesh & Blood'' contains examples of the following tropes:

* EverybodyHatesMathematics: Everybody except Gemma, that is.
* GoodWithNumbers: Gemma, who works in Frost's risk assessment department. It's also why she is put in charge of helping Bree catch up on her mathematics.
--> '''Gemma''': I actually like number theory [...] I mean, itís a total head-fuck, but thatís half the fun, isnít it?
* MeddlingParents: Min's mother, who desperately wants her daughter to marry (her birthday gift is a book of wedding dresses) and is prepared to travel all the way to Australia for it. [[AvertedTrope Averted]] by Bree's parents, who don't seem to care that their daughter goes to late night parties on a school day.
* [[RecoveredAddict Recovering Addict]]: Min certainly has a history with alcohol, which is why Bree makes sure she doesn't drink too much at her own birthday party.
* SurpriseParty: Sarah throws a high-school themed one for Min's 26th birthday. Includes a birthday cake shaped like a drawing tablet!
* ThatCameOutWrong: Min's birthday cake features apparently edible stick figures, leading to a lot of 'eating each other' jokes. Bree apparently misses these, because she later offers to share her piece with Gemma, who frequently gets teased for being single, and then proceeds to [[DiggingYourselfDeeper dig herself deeper]].
--> '''Bree''': Oh, no! Thatís not what I meant! I just thought we could share because I made Minís slice ''really'' big and Iím ''really'' small and I canít fit ''all'' of this in!
--> '''Gay Matt''': Could you give us a demo of what you have in mind?
