Fridge / Big City Greens

Go To

Fridge Brilliance

  • Gloria's skin color is purple, while her parents' skin colors are blue and pink (technically a shade of red). Now, what colors do you mix to create purple?
  • In the end, Chip Whistler's plan to get the Greens out of Big City succeeded. Because Chip bought Big Coffee and shut it down, Gloria couldn't afford her apartment and had to move in with the Greens. Because of this, Gloria helped the Green Farm tread on social media which get them better publicity. It also led to Granma agreeing to fund Gloria's cafe. The combined cash flow gave them enough money to buy back the farm in Smalton, which they moved back to midseason. And this all happened after he was banished from Big City first.
    • Also, these events happened gradually over time. Which, one of Chip's Fatal Flaws being impatience, makes it all the more ironic.
    • When the Greens move back to Big City, it is revealed Chip Whistler is still alive and has decided to come out of hiding to exact revenge on the Greens once more.
  • In The Move, Bill told Gloria he always saw her as a daughter to him. In the intro from the rest of the season, the scene of Cricket breaking the fence after trying to climb over it, Bill yells at him in the same position as Gloria did in the Season 1 intro.

Fridge Horror

  • Gramma is a completely dangerous person who regularly puts her family in danger, along with emotional abuse. It's disturbing that she gets away with so much of it, but someone responsible like Nancy is treated like a threat.
  • In "Wild Side", Cricket pressuring Remy to join him saying he’ll be happier with him resembles a cult recruiting a new member. Even better, Remy has been shown to be innocent and unsuspecting at times, a common target.
  • Gloria working in Wholesome Foods in "Chipocalypse Now", at first it could sound funny, but considering that Chip flirted with her in "Coffee Quest"... who doesn't say that given the chance Chip could have harassed Gloria sexually if she stayed for too long? And since Chip is the CEO and Gloria needs the money for her rent, she had no choice and let Chip have his way with her. Gloria should thank Cricket for reminding her of the good things the Greens made to her and that she was fired in the climax of the episode.
  • Andromeda's obsession with being a huge conspiracy theorist is pretty funny.. but it gets a little less so the moment you remember that there are full-grown adults out there who act just like she does. If she doesn't grow out of it, her obsession with finding out the truth (which might not actually be there) could get even worse, and could even harm her friendship with Tilly.
