* SceneryPorn: ''Dr. Dolittle 2'' starts this way with shots of San Francisco, including one looking up at the Golden Gate Bridge as if travelling along it, and another of part of the city skyline during sunset as the title appears. Some shots of the forest, including the final shot, also look like this.

* PottyEmergency: Played with. In ''Dr. Dolittle 2'', Archie suddenly gets one of these in a bathroom cubicle after an episode of HeartbreakAndIceCream. A blessing for him, because he's able to use the toilet immediately, but definitely an emergency for John, who's in the cubicle with Archie to prevent anyone from seeing him, and he can't keep anyone from coming in because someone might see him and because Riley is outside. He has to breathe through a small gap in the window next to the toilet as Archie uses it.



* ReplacementGoldfish: It's implied that Papito, the Mexican chameleon Maya gets from Dolittle is one for Rodney. Both talk an awful lot and are very similar characters in that they provide comic relief and sometimes pop up at inopportune moments.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Subverted. In ''Dr. Dolittle 2'', Charisse almost pulls one of these when Dolittle tells her, Lisa and Maya that Archie thinks he can win Ava, but they are stuck in the forest for longer as a result. Out of frustration, she starts walking off and Dolittle goes after her. She doesn't get far, and in the ensuing conversation, reveals she just wants to go home.



** In ''Dr. Dolittle 2'', [[spoiler:Charisse too. She kept quiet about it because she thought it would make her look like a freak.]] And Maya in the following sequels.
* StylisticSuck: Archie's first time singing Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" is so bad that not only do the animals watching leave mid-performance, even he acknowledges how bad it is.



* TooDumbToLive: Ms. Parkis, the woman who is deathly allergic to shellfish and yet won't stop eating it. She even thinks that it doesn't count as shellfish if she removes the fish from its shell before eating it. After the third time this has happened, [[note]] that we see. This has happened at least once before [[/note]] Dr.Dolittle asks her if she has a death wish.

** "Why don't you watch where you're going next time, you bonehead!" from the first film. This is the first time Dolittle has udnerstood something an animal has said since his childhood.
** In ''Dr. Dolittle 2'', "Everybody is meant to be loved." [[spoiler:The reason for it? Archie just said something similar and the WhamLine was spoken by Charisse. Dolittle then suddenly realizes she has inherited his ability to talk to animals because she understood what Archie said.]]
* YankTheDogsChain: Happens to Archie in the second film. Archie wins over Ava, Ava tells Sonny to beat it, but while Archie is trying to count to one hundred so he can chase after Ava, he is shot by a tranquilizer dart.
