- Ensemble Dark Horse: Carol Graves, by far. Whether it's because of her body figure, her snarky attitude, or generally being the World's Most Beautiful Woman, she's easily one of the most well loved characters in the comic's fanbase.
- Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Much of Thomas' advice.
- Les Yay: Jo can get a little touchy-feely with the other girls at times, but it's raised to another level when Jessica gets involved.
- Moe: Brooksie as a whole, and Nina's overbite. Carol has her moments.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: The picture on Jolene's shirt is Athena, goddess of wisdom.
