File:Castmarshall 8810.jpg

Cquote1.svg

  I like weights. If a weight is about to crush your heart, you can feel the pressure. You know it's coming. With people, you're never sure.

Cquote2.svg
  • Abusive Parents (his hedonistic mother verbally berates him in public for being an obstacle to her)
  • Bishonen (subverted and deconstructed)

  • Disappeared Dad (he has no idea who his dad even is)
  • Let's Wait a While

Cquote1.svg

  No, wait! I don't have a complex psychology! I'm just in it for fun, chicks, praise and bling!

Katy-Ann Williams, Penny's friend and Jack's girlfriend

File:Castkatyann 2921.jpg

Cquote1.svg

  We put so much passion into these day-to-day dramas, and the decisions that tell us who we are... those go almost unnoticed.

Cquote2.svg
  • Genki Girl
  • Saintly Church (a one-person embodiment and the diametric opposite of Charlotte's intolerant, near-psychotic fundamentalist nature, although sometimes her religiosity can be a source of angst as well as friction with others)
  • Wise Beyond Their Years (a teenage example of the trope, she's easily the most mature character apart from Aggie's father Nick)

File:Castbrandi 9460.jpg

Cquote1.svg

Helen Tomalin, downbeat friend, at one time or another, of Penny, Charlotte, Aggie, and Karen

File:Casthelen 6363.jpg

Cquote1.svg

  If I'm being used...at least I have a use.

Cquote2.svg
  • Abusive Parents/The Unfavorite: (her parents favor her older sister; in her childhood her father tells her he doesn't love her "right now" when she fails to complete an age-inappropriate task)
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing/False Friend: Helen is a sympathetic example of these tropes, and tends to surround herself with examples of same, some less sympathetic than others.
  • Attention Whore: Downplayed eventually, in a very literal fashion. Helen desperately wants acceptance, approval, and attention, no matter the source; she believes that letting herself be used is the only way to achieve these ends. This culminates in a Heroic BSOD/Villainous Breakdown when she realizes she slept with resident skeezoids Bob and Elmer while under the influence of alcohol.
  • Broken Bird See above.
  • Driven by Envy/The Resenter: Helen drifted apart from Penny's group of friends in middle school, and resents them for excluding her from their clique. She is implied to have been envious of Penny's social status in childhood, as well.
  • Extreme Doormat (She wants people to use her and is at a loss whenever no one needs to.)
    • I Just Want to Be Loved/I Just Want to Have Friends: Very downplayed; after remembering her rape and overhearing Brandi and Stan's healthy sexual relationship, Helen realizes she has heretofore been unable to differentiate between being loved and getting screwed, and has a breakdown.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain (in "The Popsicle War," to some extent)
  • The Mole (in Aggie's clique throughout the first half of "The Popsicle War")
  • Never My Fault: Helen's need to be used often motivates her to put her morals aside.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: Of every clique she's been in:

 (Helen's inner monologue:) "Please keep believing I'm going to heaven, Charlotte."
