* DistaffCounterpart: After Steve lost his job and especially when she married Jefferson D'Arcy, Marcy was increasingly played as a counterpart to Al, if a bit better off. Al and Marcy are both shown to be taken advantage of by their lazy spouses. This is highlighted in a Season 4 episode, where Al brings Marcy to a bar where he and other married men complain about their wives (and she complains about Steve, who has dragged his feet on getting a new job). Al is also played as being a diehard male chauvinist, and Macy a diehard female chauvinist(StrawFeminist).

* AngryWhiteMan: A rather ''sympathetic'' example.

* AngryWhiteMan: A rather ''sympathetic'' example. He's also a bit more nuanced in that, while he despises feminism and political correctness, he seems to be perfectly fine with people of color. The French are the only cultural group he hates.

* UltimateJobSecurity: The way Al insults the fat women who come into the shoe store would have gotten him fired many times over in RealLife, but he manages to keep his job anyway.
** Well, who else would want it?
** And Gary (his boss) has stated that she wouldn't fire Al because he'd make more money on unemployment.
** This is given a couple twists in the show's last ChristmasEpisode. Gary fires Al and Griff in favor of younger counterparts, who work much harder. However, those guys end up quitting when Al mocks them for heading down the exact same path he did. Gary has no choice but to rehire Al and Griff.
