* LastSecondWordSwap: Garnet gives Greg some helpful advice, then lowers her visor to wink at him. Shocked to see she actually has three eyes, but still respecting her friendly gesture, Greg recovers with "[[FunWitHomophones Eye]]!...think I get it."

* GRatedSex: Very much so. From the ''smoldering'' duet Greg and Rose sing, to Rose and Pearl's equally suggestive fusion dance, to Rose's knowing "''oh,'' yes" when Greg points out that the last few months have been great, this is a ''very'' sexually charged episode. Given the aesop on whirlwind, love-at-first-sight romances and the amount of work it takes to build beyond that, [[TropesAreTools it actually works.]]

* ShippingTorpedo: Insecure about how close he is to Rose, Pearl tries to rub Greg's inability to fuse with Rose in his face in order to make him insecure enough to give up pursuing Rose. Which backfires spectacularly as Greg's inability to fuse compels Greg to pursue her *emotionally* , which makes their relationship stronger.

Added DiffLines:

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: In this episode, Pearl looks and acts like a bratty teenager, especially where Rose is concerned.


* DeliberateVHSQuality: Downplayed; Greg shows a music video to Steven and Connie, and the ''very'' beginning is slightly blurry. Then the scene transitions into a proper flashback where the rest is perfectly clear (and includes many different camera angles). Later, Greg reviews the video, and it has the level of artifacting you'd expect from an actual recording.



* MaleGaze: There's some close-ups to Rose's lips and eyes, impliying how Greg sees her all the time.

Added DiffLines:

* SourceMusic: The music playing as Stevonnie is formed was playing on Greg's record player.

* RealityEnsues: Starting a relationship, especially an InterspeciesRomance, takes work and communication.


* AmbiguousSyntax: When Greg asks Rose to "talk to [him] for one second, like a real person", he may have meant "like [I am] a real person" ([[AmIJustAToyToYou because he felt she didn't respected him]]) or "like [you are] a real person" (because he found her behavior extremely alienating). Rose definitely took it the latter way, and uncomfortably asserts she is ''not'' a real person (she apparently just considers "person" a synonym for "human", not a more inclusive term). [[spoiler: That, or it's because her entire identity is invented.]]

Taking this advice to heart, Greg sets up a dance floor on the beach, and puts on some dance music for them to slow dance together. But to his great dismay, they dip and have one heck of a kiss, but no fusion occurs. Rose is amused that he was attempting it and giggles. Greg is frustrated and upset, and demands she talk to him like a real person.

Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion:


* AnotherStoryForAnotherTime: When Greg asks Rose how she met Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, she replies that "Those are three long stories..." Her meeting with Garnet was eventually touched on in "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E25TheAnswer The Answer]]". And for Pearl, it's later revealed [[spoiler:that story would have involved revealing her whole past as Pink Diamond, as Pearl was made to serve her.]]

* AmIJustAToyToYou: Greg's concern is not whether Rose sees him as a sex object, but whether she sees him as a ''cute animal to play with'', yet it's played similarly. Much of the episode involves Greg worrying that this may be how Rose see him and humanity as a whole, and what this might mean for their relationship.
