* WackyParentSeriousChild: Downplayed as Gene is a complete child, despite being an adult, but her father is apparently quite the successful businessman. That being said, he's also kind of out of it, and partakes in some wackiness-like Ocho de Octo.

* KarmaHoudini: Invoked and Averted in "Fight Day", Gene waits till the end of Fight Day (7 PM), hiding to avoid being hit while telling the others to go after each other (she even tries to time the exact 'ding' of the clock, but fails several times). Its averted because Billie punches her in the face anyway.

The series documents Billie's struggles with the slacker, drug-using Gene as the two form an unlikely, and often antagonistic, friendship. The series also stars Stephen Root as Gene's father, and features T.J. Miller as her "best non-sexual friend" Chet, along with the character of Tansy, Gene's ditzy young step-mom. Laced with profanity, casual drug use, and occasional violence, the series is definitely not kid friendly, but will probably appeal to fans of Workaholics.

Added DiffLines:

* MatchlightDangerRevelation: In "Fight Day" Billie is led into the darkened garage by Joy, who explains Ocho de Octo by matchlight. Then the match goes out and Joy flees, leaving Billie to light a match of her own-revealing Gene right behind her, who lampshades this trope.
-->'''Gene:''' I'm behind you, and that's scary!

Added DiffLines:

* HandsOffParenting: Ken Russel, Gene's father is shown to be a very bad parent, because he makes no attempt to discipline his daughter. As a result, Gene has ended up on house arrest because of her crimes, and poor Billie has to be hired to babysit and tutor Gene. In episode 3 "Father Daughter Talk", Billie has to cope Ken through punishing Gene, as he has no idea what he's doing.
