* JerkassFacade: In the pilot, after their (disastrous) first encounter, Gigi tells Johnny that she just wants him as a songwriter, but she smiles when she hears him going PapaWolf about her with the band.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Johnny is an egomaniac junkie, but he cares for his long-time girlfriend Ava and his newfound daughter Gigi.
* MayDecemberRomance:
** Flash and Gigi have an apparent sexual chemistry, much to Johnny's chagrin. While Flash initially flirted with Gigi in an attempt to get revenge on Johnny for the latter's previous affair with the former's ex-fianc&eacute (although it turns out that said fiance actually cheated on him with ''everyone'' in the band - yes, even Ava), Flash finds himself developing actual feelings for Gigi, and the two end up in a proper relationship midway through the first season. Following a disastrous series of events, Gigi gives Flash a blistering WhatTheHellHero speech and dumps him.
** As of the opening of season two, the two are still separated, although Flash makes it obvious he wants to rekindle the relationship and is working to regain Gigi's trust, and by the end of the episode the two are reunited. [[spoiler:At least until Flash cheats on Gigi with Ava...]]
