** Roger ended up finding a pair of magical shorts sewn together by an elderly, ambiguously Romani fortune-teller, and it made him attractive to "Famous Homosexual Ricky Martin". Rogers eventually tells him the truth about the pants, and Ricky confesses that the same woman made him his shirt. When he took it off, he lost his sexy body and gained a beer gut. Roger steals the shirt and runs off. While walking down the streets of Miami with both the shorts and shirt on, he's causing EVERYONE around him to be distracted, causing multi-car pile-ups, causing helicopters to crash into buildings, causing birds to fly into airplane engines, which causes the planes to crash...

** Since the show moved to TBS, more attention has been put onto Hayley (and to a lesser degree Klaus) when compared to the last few years of the show's run on FOX. An example being that the first TBS season had her playing some pivotal role in 7 of it's 15 episodes whether it was the main plot or the subplot.



** Steve is portrayed as physically weak in some episodes, in others he is shown to beat people within an inch of their life. It has to be said that he becomes very focused when he is angry about something/wants to take revenge.
** Is Francine incredibly dull, unintelligent, and incapable of understanding the simplest concepts, or is she a woman of average intelligence who can surprise people with moments of genius?

revenge. Additionally, in the later seasons some episodes will portray him as a mostly sweet kid, while others make him act like an obnoxiously bratty jackass. Some will also have him being mostly nice, while still being a total asshole to at least one character.
** Is Francine incredibly dull, unintelligent, and incapable of understanding the simplest concepts, or is she a woman of average intelligence who can surprise people with moments of genius?genius? Additionally, since the show's move to TBS where she's been Flanderized into a clone of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Lois Griffin]] in regards to her bitchy attitude, she acts this way more in episodes where she isn't a main character likely so that she doesn't come off as being UnintentionallyUnsympathetic.

** In one episode, Roger takes Hayley's fake ID and puts it in a pocket seemingly made of his own skin. When Hayley dives in after it, she pulls her hand out clutching what is apparently Roger's pancreas - it has a mouth with sharp teeth, and sprouts tiny legs and scuttles off. Roger complains that he will now have to spend all night "setting pancreas traps."

** A viewer of later seasons would never know that at the beginning, a bigger deal was made of keeping Roger secret and he wasn't allowed to leave the house, to the point that an early episode had the family bring him to a sci-fi convention as one of the few places he would have a social outlet.

* EscalatingPunchline: In "Stanny Tendergrass" Roger marries and kills a woman offscreen, then meets her vengeful daughter:
-->'''Roger:''' Oh, Pamela. Good. I was just looking for you. You have the same scowl your mother had. [[IBangedYourMom When I banged her.]] [[ILoveTheDead After I pulled the plug.]] ''(Pamela fires a bolt at him)'' God, I was kidding! Looks like someone pulled the plug on your sense of humor.

** In one episode, Stan has real estate agent (and hand model) Barb Hanson sent to Guantanamo so Francine can take her job. Two inmates mention they'll "cut off her pretty hands" that night. In a later episode, we see Barb again during a game show, with a hook where her hand used to be.
