** The ending to "Who's Next?" certainly also counts. Marie informed Frank that years ago, she chose Rose Caputo as the woman he was supposed to marry if she died. At the wake, Frank, still miffed about this decision being thrust upon him without any choice (plus, he wanted Harriet Lichtman instead), tells Marie loud enough so that the whole place can hear, "I don't care how many plans you make, I wouldn't be caught dead with Rose Caputo!" Immediately, Frank, Marie, Ray, Debra, Bernie, Linda, Robert, and Amy all file out in a line, ashamed of themselves.

* BaitAndSwitch: The entire episode "The Mentor". For the first two acts, Ray and Robert are baffled why Sam considered Frank a mentor when the two worked at the same company years ago. Both think that Frank treated Sam better than his own children (which makes them jealous), but it's revealed in the final act that Frank acted just as mean to Sam. The only reason why Sam looks up to Frank is because Sam's father was too gentle, whereas Frank's "quit crying and suck it up" attitude is refreshing to him.

--> '''Ray''': But I've been thinking of something, though. No. No no no. Because maybe, yes, it it seems I was a little insensitive.

So the next time you're cleaning up something and your kids are with you, and a ''sporting event'' goes by, and one of your kids says, "Hey, I should write about that.", then you can say, "No, you don't have to.

* BrickJoke: In "Ally's F", Mr. Putnam offers Debra a throat lozenge that he keeps in a bowl on his desk. After Mr. Putnam leaves, Ray, annoyed at Putnam, says "I'll give you math: This, (takes all of the lozenges) minus this, equals nothing." Towards the end of the episode, Debra gives Mr. Putnam another visit but he's far less pleasant this time, and Debra walks out after saying "You ''are'' mean, and I wouldn't marry you." (a reference to Ray saying Debra should marry Putnam if she "loves him so much"). Mr. Putnam reaches for his lozenges, but they're all gone. He remarks to nobody: "Who took my lozenges?"
