* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Aggie's dream about being in love with a female mannequin.

to:

* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Aggie's dream about being in love with a female mannequin. In the storyarc "There Are No Rules", Aggie is puzzled by her dream of being in love with a mall mannequin. After an argument with her [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguously bisexual]] best friend Lisa about [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn mixed signals]], complicated by Aggie's feelings of discomfort over two other girlfriends making out in her presence, she makes up with Lisa at the mall and gives her a hug. While doing so, she recalls her prior history of SingleTargetSexuality with regard to men, having shared the same crush as a now out-gay friend. Then, still in mid-hug, she looks up at a suspiciously familiar mannequin..."Uh oh."

Added DiffLines:

* SodaCanShakeup: Aggie pulls this prank on Penny by having Daphne distract Penny just as she's bought a can of soda from a school vending machine, then shaking the can so that Penny stains her designer clothes when she opens it. In response, Penny devises a number of humiliating {{Revenge}} schemes, none of which she gets the opportunity to launch.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsFakeFurItsFine: Not fur, but related. Aggie is giving fashion advice and says that wearing leather is wrong, but that wearing pleather - which looks and feels exactly like leather - is fine.

Added DiffLines:

** Played with in Karen's case; she starts wearing more alluring clothing as the series goes on, but at the end of "Popsicle Wars" [[VillainousBreakdown she borderline flashes her dwindling group of friends in a desperate attempt to have them still find her attractive]].


* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Calvin Machrie, the director of the school play, physically resembles Colin Mochrie of ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway,'' while his personality and directing style are patterned after those of Mochrie's recurring "Hollywood Director" character.

* {{Crossover}}: Helen crosses over into the ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' 'verse [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp02232010.shtml here]]. She narrowly avoids the [[LookBothWays standard Milholland crossover greeting]], and it all goes downhill from there. Some fans understandably viewed this as Helen being PutOnABus, but the writer of SomethingPositive [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp08092010.shtml later stated]] that Helen was a ''Penny and Aggie'' character and wouldn't be permanently joining his cast. But then, ''Penny and Aggie'' finished (with Helen appearing briefly in the epilogue story, mostly to make it clear that she'd decided to put the town behind her), whereas '''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' is still going, so -- choose your own interpretation.

* LetsWaitAwhile: Marshall's attitude to Karen's constant badgering him for sex. Because AManIsNotAVirgin, some of the fanbase turned on him for not instantly sleeping with his severely messed up girlfriend simply because she wanted him to, to the point where a fanart comic depicted him as unwilling to have sex even when they were married.

* AbusiveParents: The introduction to Charlotte's mother features her slapping her daughter across the face and berating her for doing a private interview with the police, rather than letting her do the talking. During Duane's interview with the cops, he raises his suspicions about such treatment as well, though after the conclusion of Missing Person, [[spoiler: Charlotte's serving out a prison sentence, which finally gets her away from her mother.]]
** Also Charisma, by making it clear multiple times that she resents being a mother and having very little care for her son's feelings, until she loudly declared that he was put on this earth to get in her way and slow her down. In public. In front of hundreds of people.
