Nicknames: Ned should have been accepting his non-nickname procedure before he tried to get one. And get a bad nickname. It was funny that Boomer couldn't think of nicknames. And having Cookie make "bad" nicknames for people. Then being tricked to say nice stuff instead of mean things.
Shyness: Having Cookie make a group to stop being shy. And doing the stuff that Cookie does all the time. Then tricking them into being not so shy. Plus with the oboe twins, one becoming hot and being an individual, and the other just copying any one that she comes in contact to, (Tred, Troze, Treth)
