* AdultFear: Paige has never been the best babysitter when watching Katie for Ms. O'Dell, but this Trope ''truly'' came into play when she dozed off while watching her and Katie started playing with scissors. (Fortunately, Paige woke up before a disaster happened. The fact that Ms. O'Dell still hires her after that [[InsaneForgiveness is unbelievable.]])

** J.P. Pembrook, Roger's boss, who does things like giving himself a giant pay raise while the company's in the red, insisting that the employees make themselves look bad on photo day so he'll look better by comparison, and at one point hired Roger to be the clown at his son's birthday party -- though to be fair, Roger ''had'' actually listed "Bozo services" in the qualifications section of his resume (albeit as a joke), and at the end of the arc Pembrook thanks him for a job well done (and begs him not to sue).

** The second time was when Peter drank an entire pot of coffee, claiming he had a killer math test, and though a whole pot would get his brain functioning like a "super-fast calculation machine". In the last panel, he's in class, sweating heavily, thinking to himself, "If the boy's bathroom is a thousand feet away and I run at a rate of a hundred feet per second..."

-->Andy: I wish that [[ParodyName Coffeebucks]] hadn't opened up down the street.
-->Roger: Why? You think it'll hurt the Mom & Pop coffee shops?
-->Andy: Because it's on the route Peter takes to come home.
-->Roger: I wondered why his teeth were chattering all the way through dinner.

Added DiffLines:

* ImpossiblePickleJar: Jason is having trouble with a pickle jar, so Peter decides to show him "how a REAL man does it." Cut to off-camera sounds that sound like Peter's going into labor, with Jason revealing to Paige that [[spoiler:he's glued the lid shut: "This ought to be entertaining for a couple of hours."]]

Added DiffLines:

* RecordedSplicedConversation: Jason does this to Paige to get her in trouble. Paige is talking the phone and says "Mr Vivona wants us to cut five articles from the newspaper every day this week for social studies, and the only scissors I have are, like, totally dull". Jason records this, then splices it together so Paige says "I cut social studies every day this week. Mr Vivona is totally dull."

Added DiffLines:

* TheatrePhantom: Jason and Marcus once wanted to go to start attending the opera. Andy saw they were up to this, since they made the mistake of applying the Phantom's well-known mask before asking her for permission.

* CharacterBlog:
** Jason has [[http://www.gocomics.com/profiles/771232 an account on Gocomics]], thought it's likely a fan.
** One strip had Elieen ranting about a girl named Mandy Berwick and that she thinks she's so cool and popular, and then says "''Zero'' matches on Website/{{Google}}!". Someone then made [[http://mandyberwick.tripod.com/ this]] webpage for her.

** Another example: Andy is going through the bills, horrified by the heating bill, the telephone bill, the cable bill... Then Paige walks in in a bikini, telling her that she's got her friends on a conference call if they can go to some TV-sponsored event. The next panel has Peter, Paige and Jason in heavy winter clothes watching the rabbit ear antenna'd TV, with Jason holding up a telegraph telling Paige shes has a message as Peter angrily demands to know what Paige told their mom.

** Played with another time, where Andy chastised Jason for using the word "crap." After he said "but it's a dice game," Andy told him "that's ''craps''." His response fell into LoopholeAbuse territory: "Craps. The stupid ''[[TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' is a rerun."

* RubeGoldbergDevice: Jason has frequently designed them: one to illuminate a halo over his head to convince SantaClaus that Jason was behaving; and another to light the grill.

** Also a rare domestic example in the Roger Housesitting arc where, after flooding the house (namely due to incompetence on Roger's part involving the Dishwasher), and turning it into a swamp as a result of trying to drain the water, he mentions that they need to flee the border before Andy gets home.
