* AnAesop: There’s nothing wrong with looking out for other people, but at the same time you have to take care of yourself. Also, you are not responsible for other people's problems and actions. Additionally, always unloading your emotional baggage on someone will eventually weigh them down and there eventually comes a time where one has to mature up and solve their own problems more often.
* AllOfThem: Amethyst orders a pizza with "literally all the toppings" from Fish Stew Pizza. It looks like a fish and cheese casserole, complete with a whole fish sticking out of it, and they alternately eat it with spoons and by wrapping it up in the crust.

Added DiffLines:

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Deconstructed; Amethyst admits during this episode that the Crystal Gems were wrong to burden Steven with issues that he shouldn't have to deal with as a fourteen-year-old kid, because it gave him such a huge GuiltComplex that he started to neglect his own emotional and mental health.
--> '''Amethyst:''' ''(As she leaves for Brooding Hill to find Ruby)'' Let me take care of this, Steven! No adult should be putting anything else on you. Just let someone else take care of it for once!


* BrokenPedestal: While she's taking it much better than Sapphire did, Amethyst is still angry about Rose's lies, especially [[SinsOfTheFather how it keeps causing trouble for those who weren't originally involved]]. {{Subverted|Trope}} by Steven, whose Rose pedestal was more or less already broken.

** When Amethyst is trying to fly away in helicopter form, she tells Steven, who is hanging on inside her head/cockpit, to "get out of [her] head". Before that she told him to get off her back, meaning in dealing with her issues, only for the camera to switch to show him hanging from the the tail of the helicopter form, which if the rear blades are her lower body, is her back.
