  • Anime Hair: Tea muses over whether she should get a haircut that doesn't make her look like a cardboard box.
  • Badass Adorable: Mokuba takes out the bad guys in a surprisingly awesome way.
  • Buxom Is Better: Rex's take on Miss Cleo.
    Rex: Miss Cleo's got big thingies.

  • Jailbait: Tristan sees Serenity as this. Creepily enough, it doesn't seem to bother him at all.
  • Moment Killer: Serenity is mid Love Confession when Tristan barges back into her hospital room and loudly announces that he was taking a dump during the time that she thought he was listening to her.
  • No Indoor Voice: The entire Espa Roba family.
  • Noodle Incident: "...and that's when I finally came to terms with my identity as a woman."
  • Rhetorical Question Blunder: Serenity assumes that when Tristan offers her "the best present ever" he's referring to a cure for her blindness. It's actually a computer.
  • Shout-Out:
    • "Nyeh... what's up, buttmunch?"
    • Waldo shows up in a background shot.
    • Joey attempts to weaponize the "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" dancing banana. Too bad Espa Roba can destroy outdated internet references.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: "Or we could watch illegally downloaded movies! But nobody really does that. Honest."

  • Take That!: Naruto: The Abridged Series is called out for thinking that the word "emo" constitutes a joke.

  • Tangled Family Tree: It is theorized that all of the Espa Roba family all looks and speaks exactly the same due to copious amounts of inbreeding.
  • Waxing Lyrical: Joey quotes "You Spin Me Round" by Dead or Alive.
