* TooMuchInformation: though not voiced it was pretty much Shaenando reaction to Melrose telling her that [[WholesomeCrossdresser while wearing a dress]] he can pee without anyone noticing, the fact that she most likely has a crush on him made this revelation [[CrowningMomentOfFunny so much more difficult on her]].

* GenreSavvy: Mustain frequently takes RefugeInAudacity by wearing ridiculous disguises in public and dressing Melrose up in women's clothes. The unsuspecting public won't find them this way and Shenandoah and Forest can pick off the stragglers that have figured the trick out much more easily.
