* AlphaBitch: A morning talk show for middle-aged women has the hosts constantly drinking and insulting their guests. They are perfectly okay with crossing into violent territory and harass their guests. The audience is just as bad as they are.

** DoubleSubverted in "Star Trek." After Steve receives a failing grade in English, Stan says he's going to pay his teacher a little visit, all while menacingly cracking his knuckles. It then cuts to Stan finishing a pleasant lunch with the teacher and his family. As he starts to leave, Stan takes out his gun, puts it to the teacher's head, and demands to know why he gave Steve an "F."

Added DiffLines:

** "The Unincludeds" had this as the subplot concerning Roger. Roger gets incredibly offended when a waitress doesn't compliment his complex order. Roger forces Hayley to switch orders, he still doesn't get complimented, and sets out to get revenge. He stalks the waitress on her date, poses as a waiter, and highly compliments her date's dinner order and dares her to top it. She asks to get the same thing. [[spoiler: Roger scalps her.]]

** This trope is taken even further given the fact that Stan had to unlearn the things that specifically pleasured Francine to relearn things that pleasured woman in general.

* AnachronismStew: The episode "The Kidney Stays in the Picture" is this for the 1990s. [[ItMakesSenseInContext Stan and Francine go back to 1996 to see who Hayley's real father is.]] The episode takes place in 2012, and Hayley is older than 16. It also makes reference to Elian Gonzales and shows Roger trying to creat MDMA which has been around since the 1970s. The characters are dressed like it's the late 1980s though.

** Arguably with Hayley. Stan and Hayley were the first two characters created when the show was being planned as an updated ''{{All in the Family}}''. Since the second season onward, as characterization and story took precedence over politics, Hayley has been used less and less, especially compared with Steve and Roger. In many episodes, she is lucky if she has similar screen time and lines as Klaus.
