** At one point he described his relationship with summarizes his own father as "When he'd come back father's interactions with him, [[WhenYouComingHomeDad after coming home [from working from long hours working on the road], you think he had time for regrets? He'd road]], as: "He'd have a drink, punish me for whatever I did and then hit the road again.""
** Conversely, whenever the subject of his mother comes up, Frank invariably describes her as having been a saint (Marie contests this, but that seems to be more about their mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship than her parenting).

* NewYorkCityCops: He is one, as is his best friend Judy, who work as partners on the force. They avert the "grim and gritty" stereotypes that some shows use.



* NewYorkCityCops: Never mess with a New York cop. Her attitude to the punky kids, who play on Robert's hesitation and insecurity when he returns to the beat after injury, is a good example. She also chews up Ray for not taking his observer status seriously on the ride-along.

* AbusiveParents: Frank's idea of parenting comes perilously close to this at times. In a {{Deconstruction}}, it's later revealed that the "tough love" angle was passed down through generations of heavy-handed Barone fathers, and that, in spite of verbally belittling his sons in virtually every episode, Frank could never bring himself to physically harm Robert or Ray for that exact reason.



* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Frank and Marie were this to a tee.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Peter spends most of the series being a complete ass, ''especially'' to Robert, but it's made clear that this attitude stems from his love and protectiveness for Amy. Once he buries the hatchet with his brother-in-law, he becomes a lot more likable.
