* {{Cliffhanger}}: "Mother's Day" ends with Debra and Marie not making up with each other, and even refusing to talk to each other at all. They're still giving each other the silent treatment throughout "The Bigger Person", and after a botched attempt to apologize to Marie in "The First Time", Debra renews her decision to not talk to Marie. It's important to note that "The First Time" was season 6's ''finale'', so Marie and Debra wouldn't make up until the season 7 premiere, "The Cult".

* ForeignRemake: ''Voroniny'' (The Voronins), a Russian remake. The characters seem to be [[FlatCharacter kind of bland]], most of the humor is derived from the father's charisma, jokes and making fun of the mother. The brother is, despite being a cop, quite a manchild. The wife is much less of a bitch, portrayed as closer-to-Earth with shades of {{Woobie}} thrown in because the mother just openly dislikes her. Oh, and they live in two separate apartments but they are next to each other, allowing the parents to come over through the balcony whenever the hell they want, many jokes are made of that fact also. Otherwise, according to whoever saw the original, ItsTheSameSoItSucks.
** A British remake, starring [[OopNorth comedian]] [[{{NotGoingOut}} Lee Mack]] in the Raymond role, never made it past the pilot.

* AffectionateNickname: Gianni calls Ray "Big Nose". His use of it in "The Contractor" signals that he's trying to make up with Ray after their fight:

'''Ray''': Nothing yet... Ass... Nose.\\
''(Gianni raises his eyebrows)''\\
'''Ray''': Ya heard me.

* DiggingToChina: Amy [=McDougall=]'s religiously pious father is appalled by Frank Barone's earthy profanity. He cannot bring himself to repeat the word "hell", and creates the euphemism "The Antipode of Heaven". Frank is stunned.
-->'''Frank''': Can I watch TV now?
--> '''Marie''': No, Frank.
--> '''Frank''': Then [[PrecisionFStrike what the hell]] are we gonna do all night?
--> '''Hank''': Less cursing, I hope.
--> '''Frank''': Who cursed?
--> '''Hank''': You referred to the antipode of heaven.
--> '''Frank''': [[IResembleThatRemark What the hell kind of moon-man talk is that?]]

** In "Author", Ray goes to bed in a sour mood (he had been rejected for a book deal) and Debra quickly ascertains that he's jealous of Robert's promotion. When she calls him on it:
--> '''Ray''': Why don't you share a laugh over that with your boyfriend Robert.\\
'''Debra''': Oh, right. So that's it. Robert. That's what this is all about.\\
'''Ray''': ''(annoyed tone of voice)'' No!

** In "The Breakup Tape," Raymond is jealous of the fact that the pepper grinder that Debra uses was given to her as a gift from a former boyfriend. So he buys another one, [[CompensatingForSomething which is far larger than the previous one.]] He even puts them side by side for emphasis.

* AllWomenArePrudes: Debra, who, depending on the writer, flip flops around this trope. Sometimes she's absolutely adverse to having sex while other times not so much. Most definitely subverted in her youth as she was shown to have been sexually active in college and instigated Ray and her's first time together.

* {{Church of Happyology}}: Inner Path, the cult that Robert briefly joins. They apparently also have their sights set on recruiting Ray because of his status as a famous sportswriter. [[{{DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything}} The leader of the local branch of the cult explains that they like to recruit celebrities in order to help get their message to a wider audience]].

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: "The Angry Family". If somebody had simply asked Michael where he got the inspiration to write his book (it was actually from a TV cartoon called ''Monster Maniacs'', not his own family), a whole lot of family conflict could've been avoided.
