- Birthday Episode: The story takes place right after Thomas' birthday, and it's his birthday what starts all of Thomas' doubts about his future that set the story off.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: Under the influence of Dad, until Logan and Roman managed to rein him in, Thomas used to eat all kinds of bizarre mixtures of things, like ramen noodles, chocolate syrup, M&M's, marshmallows, sprinkles... among other stuff, all mixed together in a single bowl. And he found it delicious.
- Blank White Void: This is how the Mind Palace looks when nothing is particularly imagined or when Thomas or the Side that summons it blanks for a second while trying to get there. Instead of a room with a particular shape, Thomas and the Sides appear in a bright white infinity.Logan: It's a little too... basic.
Virgil: [covering his face with a voice of pain] MY EYES!
Roman: Sorry, I seem to have drawn a blank for a second.
- Does Not Like Spam: Thomas gets unsettled when Roman mentions that he must eat healthy food like... carrots.
- The Man: When Thomas appears wearing a shirt and necktie, Anxiety remarks that now he looks like "the Man" and that he now wants to fight him.
- Memetic Mutation: In-Universe. Logan dabs while he's telling Thomas that he doesn't have a "styling pair of Warby Parkers" like he does. This is Anxiety's reaction:Anxiety: Is no one going to aknowledge that he just dabbed?
- Montage: When first Dad, then Logic and the others make their suggestions to Thomas, several videos appear of Thomas in his daily life.
- Noodle Implements: The game of Patton-cake requires tuna fish, two tennis rackets, dipping someone's fingers in candle wax, and Virgil sulking in a corner.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Anxiety remarks that if Thomas follows the adult lifestyle Logan wants him to follow, it would give him more work to do, and he doesn't like working hard.
- Running Gag: Once again, Dad uses the term "adultery" to name the process of becoming an adult, and once again Thomas tries to correct him in frustration with no luck.
- Setting Update: At the end of the episode, Thomas and the Sides are transported to a new setting, where each Sides' spot is entirely decorated fitting him. It was intended for it to be a permanent change, but one episode later, the change would be rolled back due to technical issues.
- The Reveal: This is the episode where Morality, or Dad, reveals that his real name is Patton.
