* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Like last time, Ethan never considered a backup plan in case his spinoff falls through. He announces his quitting his old job at the hardware store, and we're not sure what happens after Bojack runs off in the middle of the show's recording.

* IronicEcho: The jogger from "Out To Sea" tells [=BoJack=] that [[ItGetsEasier "everyday it gets easier"]]. He learns here that [[ItNeverGetsAnyEasier it couldn't be further from the truth]]. He forgets that the jogger added that the hard part is "doing things everyday" before it becomes easier. While it ultimately refers to his attempt at exercise, it's seemingly more symbolic that accepting the consequences for his actions, or improving on his life, is the hard part before he can live off easy.

* OverlyPrePreparedGag: Many critics have accused (whether seriously or jokingly) as being a big long setup for the ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' parody at the beginning.

* WhamShot: As Princess Carolyn restarts her company, she is contacted by someone looking for [=BoJack=]. She dismisses it as she doesn't work for [=BoJack=] any more, and we get a shot of ''who's'' calling: a teenage girl that looks remarkably similar to [=BoJack=] (later revealed to be Hollyhock, his [[spoiler:illegitimate daughter]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: The ocean disaster takes it to ludicrous levels in being tailored specifically to Mr. Peanutbutter's resources.


* NonIndicativeTitle: While the title refers to a line in ''Horsin' Around'', ''nothing'' is going well for [=BoJack=]] as the episode draws to a close. Sarah Lynn is dead and he feels solely responsible for her overdosing. Todd and Princess Carolyn are estranged from him. And now, a young girl not unlike Sarah Lynn at the same age says she wants to be just like him. All this drives [=BoJack=] into a panic attack that leads him to attempt suicide...but have second thoughts as he sees the herd of horses.

Added DiffLines:

* WereStillRelevantDammit: In-Universe it's pretty evident that ''Ethan Around'' is trying way too hard to be current with references to "swiping left" a la Tinder.


* {{Expy}}: Child actor Julia is one for Sarah Lynn, emphasized by her being a human girl despite playing a horse character. When [=BoJack=] realizes this, he has a panic attack.
