This piece of information is quite significant when it comes to the characterisation of Tina, whose portrayal is in some ways more akin to that what is expected of a teenage boy than a teenage girl. Tina wears a blue t-shirt, a black skirt and a pair of thickly framed glasses; none of this is particularly gendered, in likeness to the other Belchers’ outfits. However, her interests follow the audiences’ conception of a girl in her teens: horses, boys, boys and horses. Tina’s fascination with boys is given a lot of room in the show, as is her appreciation of butts. In the episode “Boyz 4 Now” Tina goes to a boy band’s concert and unlike Louise, she wholly enjoys her time there.
In Chapter Five of How to Read Like a Professor, Thomas Foster’s purpose is to note how all stories ultimately relate with one another. Recurrences and patterns may be hard to notice at first, but once the reader has given the book enough thought and analyzing process, then these similarities are easier to spot. One example Foster brings up is Going After Cacciato written in 1978.

In the novel, the protagonist’s mind often flashes back to also signal the narrative change.

I hit the brakes giving the squirrel enough time to realize the danger and leap onto the hood of my LaFerrari (Did I mention that the selling and transporting of “candy” is a big business?)

I sat there for a moment, sure it was a hallucination, before driving the rest of the way to work. Little did I know, Jon Sena had just vowed a life debt to me, and wanted to repay it as soon as
