* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When Gumball and Darwin riff through Sarah's locker and discover [[IJustWantToHaveFriends she just wants Gumball and Darwin's friendship]]:
-->'''Darwin:''' Are you thinking what I'm thinking?\\
'''Gumball:''' I know right? ''I'm definitely taller than you!'' And if my eyes were that close together, I'd be a cyclops!


Added DiffLines:

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: As Darwin looks at Sarah's drawings in her locker, Gumball observes one of Sarah's bad drawing of himself and Darwin. Sarah's drawing of Gumball depicts him as very short with close eyes, while Darwin is extremely tall. Gumball then compares their height and his eye placement while Darwin talks.


Added DiffLines:

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: Several scene early on appear to have a LaughTrack which is actually being played by a recorder Sarah is hiding behind her back. She uses it throughout the episode to play sitcom music. Hilariously played with at the end of the episode when, during what is supposed to be a dramatic climax to the "battle" between Gumball and Darwin, Gumball is slowly shoving Darwin into a spinning fan[[note]]That's covered by a grate... so no real danger[[/note]] while Sarah's tape recorder is playing dramatic music. Gumball keeps shoving Darwin in but is shouting for Sarah to intervene, as per her story, but she won't because she can't get the tape player to stop playing the music. This forces Gumball to prolong the scene until he [[OffscreenTeleportation suddenly appears next to Sarah]], grabs the recorder, and breaks it by throwing it off the building, causing the music to stop altogether--barring the music that she can sing.

* TakeThatAudience: Sarah's behavior is a pretty clear jab at the stereotypical fangirl. She's well-meaning, but she annoys them through her interference and even wrote adventures about the three of them, in the style of a stereotypical fanfic.

They were pretty fair compared to most other series and a bit more in-depth, acknowledging shipping and Gumball mentioning she should go to art school (which is a common criticism to those who draw crappy fan-art).

* NoTimeToExplain: Gumball keeps yelling this at the beginning to explain all of his reckless behavior as he's running, even though a lot of the stuff he's doing (like running over cars instead of the sidewalk or through a topiary or walking ''back'' to Sarah to push her) are clearly slowing him down.
