* NobodysThatDumb: In season 12 "[=CIAPow=]", when Stan and his friends are trying to avoid the police in Thailand, Hooper's idea of a safehouse is taking refuge in a [[TheBurgerKing Burger King]] restaurant thinking that [[ArtisticLicenseLaw since it's a U.S. corporation it's technically U.S. soil]]. Despite the Burger King cashier's lack of education, even he pointed out Hooper's flawed logic.

* NoExceptYes: When Roger and Stan are competing as restaurateurs, Roger tries to steal customers from Stan by wearing a sandwich board that reads "Free refills on everything, food and drink excluded."
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Numerous times throughout the series, including: Francine beating up Stan for forgetting their anniversary, which was so brutal, it was filmed for an episode of ''Series/{{Cops}}''. Stan has beaten up Bullock, an elderly security guard, and a meter maid in three separate episodes. Hayley also beat Snot to within an inch of his life after she learned he stole her lucky panties, although Snot seemed to have enjoyed it.
* NoManOfWomanBorn: In an early episode, an attractive classmate of Steve's agrees to go out with him, but only if he finds someone to go out with her wholly unattractive friend. His attempts to hook her up with a guy are unsuccessful to say the least.
-->'''Steve:''' It's like there's not a human being alive that would go out with that girl.\\
'''Roger:''' ''[walks into Steve's room]'' Hello.

** Roger's plan in "Toy Whorey": when he's trying to get a bottle of wine that only Greg and Terry have, Roger shorts out the Smith house's power with a RubeGoldbergDevice saying the two will come over to check on them. Francine takes the wine by force, but when she grabs the corkscrew she triggers a wrecking ball that knocks her out of the way, all so Roger can eat both his steak and Francine's.

*** Even when her refusal to discipline her children is an actual plot point, the episodeís aesop usually end up being Stan having no right to spend time for himself.
** Steve in "News Glance with Genevieve Vavance". He goes along with Genevieve Vacance's (one of Roger's many personas) bogus news story that he was kidnapped by Hayley in order to get head with a bunch of girls at his school that were missing him when he vanished due to being embarrassed in his sex-ed class. He later exposes Roger and clear Hayley's name but he himself is not punished for selling out his own sister for something ''she didn't even do'' to begin with.
** Hayley and Jeff con Stan out of $50,000 which was supposed to be her wedding fund, something that Stan actually approved of. Only for him to find them a month later whoring Jeff out in the desert (they blew through the money running away from Roger but Stan didnít know that). Due to the circumstances of the episode, Stan welcomed them back into his house. However Hayley and Jeff made entirely no effort to contribute to the point of causing financial troubles by staying up late while blasting the TV keeping Stan up, and eating excessively. The aesop of the episode ended up being how Stan should let Hayley and Jeff mooch off of him because of how low minimum wage is.
*** However later episodes shows that her family sees her as little more then an irresponsible [[ManChild woman child]] and have resigned themselves to the fact that they will be taking care of her for the rest of their lives. Though even in that episode she and Steve ended up being Karma Houdiniís
**** And as of "She Swill Survive", thatís Stanís fault.

* MistakenForSubculture: An episode had one of Steve's friends under fire for supposedly stealing a classmate's Bar Mitzvah money. When a bunch of bald guys ragged on him for it, he said "But you're skinheads; you hate Jews." Turns out they were just the [[{{Superman}} Lex Luthor]] fan club; the skinheads were one table over.
