** When Robert goes to Hank and Pat [=MacDougal=]'s house to ask for Amy's hand in marriage, they both give each other a sweet look after he finishes asking, and then (while still smiling) tell him, "No."

* 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.

'''Raymond:''' What throne?
'''Robert:''' SHUT UP!
'''Raymond:''' You say shut up to the prince?
'''Robert:''' [''points to Frank''] And then you have your court jester, with his bald head and weighty behind! And then there's me...the peasant, the serf. And God forbid I move up a bit because it might upset your perfect order!
