* ImprovisedLockpick: Subverted "Portrait of Francine's Genitals". When Roger is hiring a crew to help Stan steal a portrait of Francine's genitals from an art museum, he hires a Belgian locksmith named Claude Verdeer, who has the smallest fingers in the world. It looks like he is about to use his small fingers to pick the lock on the entrance, but then he pulls out a drill to use on the lock instead.

* {{Gorn}}: Has indulged in this during the mid-2010s, though thankfully not as much as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', though time will tell whether or not it goes too far.

** In S2 Ep10 "Bush Comes To Dinner" then-President UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush brings this trope up to Stan after he angrily tells Hayley that she's a lost cause. Bush reveals that he was a very wild party boy when he was younger (which, sadly, is TruthInTelevision) and that Hayley, due to her rebellious ways, is not a lost cause, but is on the track to becoming President of the United States.

* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Francine uses this trope several times in S5 Ep07, "My Morning Straitjacket" to get Stan backstage at a concert. A montage shows her flirting and flashing her way past several levels of security (including a lesbian security guard).

Added DiffLines:

* InferioritySuperiorityComplex:
** Stan is deeply arrogant and self-assured, but he puts a lot of stock into gaining the validation of others. In "I Can't Stan You", learning that he was not beloved by his neighbors as he believed he was caused him to break down, eventually driving him to have the whole neighborhood (and his family) relocated so he wouldn't have to endure their "criticisms". This trait is also brought up in "Chimdale" and "An Incident at Owl Creek", with Stan even stating in the former his belief that other people's opinions of you matter more than anything.
** Roger also suffers from this. His massive ego is easily punctured, and his sense of self-worth can be diminished by a few choice words from people he's closest to.

** In "Honey, I'm Homeland", [[spoiler:Hayley]] tries to break [[spoiler:Stan's radical anti-capitalist brainwashing by reminding him of times that she pissed him off with her leftist, hippie lifestyle, such as when she filled his gas tank with sugar so he'd be forced to bike to work, and when, for Career Day, she told her class that he introduced crack and AIDS to the ghetto]].



** Taken to literal lengths by Francine towards Stan, who has amnesia, in the episode "The Boring Identity". To help Stan remember that he works for the CIA, she attempts to trigger his self-defense instincts... by pummeling him with punches and kicks, hoping that he'll fight back on reflex alone. [[spoiler:He doesn't, and the guests at the event they're attending are horrified at Francine's beatdown on Stan]].
