'''Frank''': I'll tell ya, when your mother told me she'd been hiding that money from me, I was thinking what dress to lay her out in.
And now I'm here... in friggin' Italy. It's like a dream. I'm from Lynbrook. I worked my whole life. I never thought I'd be in such a place.\\

--> '''Frank''': It's a beautiful place, huh?\\
'''Ray''': Oh, yeah yeah, good night.\\

'''Ray''': ''(sharing the same bed)'' I was just wondering, could your ''leg'' be in another place?\\
'''Frank''': I happen to be serious.\\
'''Ray''': All right, okay.\\
'''Frank''': No, I know I I complain about stuff and all that, but I'm a lucky man. I'm a very lucky man. ''(rolls over, presumably crying tears of joy)''\\
'''Ray''': ...I'm not holding him.

** In "Robert Needs Money", after Ray asks why he shouldn't feel insulted that Robert wants to use his $1,000 to go to Vegas instead of paying his bills:
--> '''Robert''': Because you realize that only a heartless dictator, or ''mom'', would tell people how to run their lives.\\
'''Ray''': You're calling me a heartless dictator? ''OR MOM''?!

* NewYorkCityCops: Robert and Judy. They completely avert the "grim and gritty" stereotypes that often accompany the NYPD on drama shows.

* HiddenDepths: While Frank was presented as a boorish ignoramus for most of the series, it is noted in a couple episodes that he was actually an educated professional who had a successful career in the accounting field. For somebody born in the early 1930s, those are pretty substantial credentials.

Added DiffLines:

* [[JerkassHasAPoint Jerkass(es) Ha(ve) A Point]]: The elder Barones make the point in a handful of episodes ("Pilot," "Wallpaper," and "No Thanks") that if the younger Barones were simply honest with them about behavior that annoys them, they would be more than happy to comply with their wishes and wouldn't take offense.
** "The Skit" explores this interesting dynamic between the two couples...Frank and Marie are shown to be remarkably thick-skinned and even willing to laugh at their own flaws, whereas Ray and Debra are particularly thin-skinned and sensitive when the tables get turned.

* IWantGrandkids: Marie is this to Robert and Amy, to the point that she doesn't count Ally, Michael, and Jeffrey as grandkids because she rarely sees them anymore.

* KnockKnockJoke: One of the biggest fights between Debra and Marie started with Debra not allowing Michael and Jeffrey to tell a knock knock joke to Marie's friends. But to be fair, Debra had been trying to settle her kids down and Marie wasn't helping at all.

* ParentalHypocrisy: The problem in "The Disciplinarian"; Ray and Debra realize they have a hard time telling Michael and Jeffrey to behave when they did rebellious things as teenagers. (Ray repeatedly broke curfew and Debra took her top off at Mardi Gras)
