- Ensemble Dark Horse:
- Shelly the Waitress is probably the most popular of the quirky locals introduced so far.
- Also Tom Long
- Fan-Preferred Couple: Zoe & Wade, aka Zade. They eventually do become the Official Couple.
- Poor Man's Substitute: You really get the feeling that Wilson Bethel as Wade is basically Robert Pattinson with yet another accent.
- Portmanteau Couple Name: Zade for Zoe/Wade.
- Romantic Plot Tumor: Zoe's obsession with winning George's love after he's broken up with Lemon after finding out she cheated on him with Lavon can be qualified as this.
- The Woobie: Lemon. Her mother walked out on her, forcing her to step up and take her place. Then she finds out said mother is living just a few miles away with another family.
