  • Butt-Monkey / Chew Toy: Tom. He gets hit in the head with a 10 lb ashtray and receives a cavity search in an Italian airport, among other things.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Sarah's dad (and pretty much her entire family) hates Tom.
  • Eagleland: Tom acts like a very stereotypical American tourist who only cares about sports and beer.

  • Forceful Kiss: Peter plants one on Sarah.

  • I Know Karate: Peter tells Tom this. He also pronounces it "ka-ra-TAY".

  • Mile-High Club: Tom and Sarah try to join it on their way to Europe. It doesn't go well.
  • The Millstone: Kyle, Tom's immature and loud-mouthed best friend.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Tom and Sarah accuse each other of this towards the end, although to be fair, neither of them were completely innocent.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Tom gets one from Sarah's father and from the snooty manager of the ritzy French hotel they go to.
  • Rich Bitch: Sarah, although her sister is a much better example of this trope.
  • You Can Always Tell a Liar: Tom's flared nostrils are a dead giveaway for Sarah.
