  • Face Doodling: Because Jackson fell asleep in class, Rocki made him look like a cat with some sharpie. Rocki also mentions she drew a tulip on his back as well because his crack was showing.
  • Food as Bribe: To soften the blow about telling Jackson he's going to summer school, DJ packs in a steak sandwich, a whole pumpkin pie, and an iTunes gift card. After her shift at work, DJ picks up a pizza for him as well as an ice cream cake.
  • Food Slap: When Fernando walks in with Debbie, Kimmy throws lemonade in Fernando's face as well as her face. When the woman says she's a realtor and that the only thing going on between them is an escrow, Fernando and Kimmy give Stephanie death glares. Stephanie then throws a glass of lemonade in her own face.
  • Ignoring by Singing: Stephanie thinks Jimmy should tell Kimmy Fernando is cheating on her and he says he avoids confrontation. When she brings it up again, he closes his ears and goes "la la la."
