- Alternate Character Interpretation: In one strip, Greg puts forth the theory that Walt Disney, who took existing works and rewrote them to suit his own tastes, was a Fanfic author. Liz threatens to murder him for this.
- Harsher in Hindsight: The Wild Fandango from 2002 is harsher when you remember what happened nearly four years later.
- Retroactive Recognition: Lampshaded when Greg points out that Liz had a background cameo in one strip before she became a regular or his girlfriend (and later wife).
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Demonstrated here.
