Deidre Koala, a social outcast, is regarded as ugly and repulsive by others, and Adam wants to stop this, by becoming her friend.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: This was Deidre's story, as she had become somewhat of a pariah at Charles Darwin Middle School. Apparently, she couldn't fit in with anyone else, because of her repulsive rituals and disgusting habits.
  • Amusing Injuries: Ingrid, Windsor, and Slips underwent a series of these, throughout the episode, every time they lost at volleyball against the unstoppable Lupe and Jake.

  • Ass Shove: When the gang dogpiled onto the same chair, Jake managed to shove himself up Windsor's buttcrack.
  • Beautiful All Along: Deidre Koala actually looks really beautiful, if you just put bows on her.

  • Foreign Queasine: Deidre's eucalyptus-themed food.
  • Hidden Depths: Lupe and Jake are revealed to be skilled volley ball players.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Henry was used as a volley ball.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Deidre desperately needed friends, but nobody would talk to her, because she was so gross.
  • The Makeover: Jake and Lupe gave Deidre one of these.
  • Medium Awareness: When Lupe and Jake gave Deidre her makeover via montage, they went to a building called "Montage Groomers".

  • Running Gag: Someone getting hit buy a coconut. This is usually the volley ball team, opposing Lupe and Jake.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Lupe has the upper body strength to spike a coconut volley ball down to earth like a meteor, giving anyone within the drop zone, in this case, Slips, a comical cartoon concussion.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After helping Deidre become popular and beautiful, Deidre abandoned her unpopular friends and joined The Jungle Squad.
