* RantInducingSlight: Wayne returns home after a miserable day at work to find the kids gone, the window of his attic/lab broken and some of his furniture missing. Distraught of the whole thing he accidentally hits his head on the equipment, and then takes his frustration on his invention and destroys it.
-->'''Wayne:''' I don't believe this! What a day. ''(looks at his machine)'' This is all your fault. Five years and you don't even WORK!

* ''Series/HoneyIShrunkTheKids: The TV Show'' (1997-2000): More inventions, more problems for the Szalinskis in this three-season syndicated sitcom. TheOtherWiki's entry on it posits that this is either an AlternateContinuity from the films or set between the first two; it features no movie cast members.

** The sequel, the crowds of Vegas are running for their lives as giant Adam playfully makes his "rampage." Then the military decides to shoot tranquilizer darts, shocking the Hard Rock Café guitar Adam had been trying to play, causing Adam to cry. The panicked crowd watch no longer in horror of Adam, but in concern and compassion, seeing him for what he is, an innocent little boy in a beyond belief situation, then turning to anger as they prepare to shoot him again.

* BigDamnHeroes: Quark does this twice in the climax of ''Honey, I Shrunk the Kids''; first rescuing the kids from the backyard and bringing them inside the house, then in the next scene he bites Wayne's leg seconds before he accidentally eats Nick.
** In the second film, giant-sized Diane stops Dr. Hendrickson from shooting her son again by grabbing his helicopter out of the sky.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the third film, Adam and Mitch look at a magazine that Adam thinks would get him in trouble with his dad and that the parents can't see from their angle on the floor. [[spoiler: Wayne crawls up on the magazine after the boys leave and discovers its a regular issue of ''Sports Illustrated.'' Wayne seems nearly as upset as he would have been if it really had turned out to be a Magazine/{{Playboy}}, though not because of what the magazine turned out to be, but because Adam would think he'd be so upset about it. This is what starts Wayne's character growth in this film and makes him start to realize that he needs to let Adam pursue his own interests instead of forcing him into the sciences; his own son is actually afraid of him finding out he's into sports.]]

** In the third film, the two fathers have to dodge giant potato chips when they fall into a bowl of dip.



* HereWeGoAgain: At the end of the second movie Nick and Mandy are still shrunk in the car and Adam's stuffed bunny is still huge. Wayne tells a doubtful Diane he'll get the machine fix to shrink it back. Though Adam doesn't seem to mind.

* DemotedToExtra: Amy only briefly appears in ''Honey, I Blew Up The Kid'', and [[PutOnABus leaves for college]] before the end of the first act. Including the scene at all seemed to be mostly an excuse to get Diane out of the house again.

Including the scene at all seemed to be mostly an excuse to get Diane out of the house again. To be fair, when the film was originally written as ''Big Baby'', the family it was supposed to center around did not have an eldest daughter, so the writers probably felt that trying to shoehorn Amy into the film would made it come off as disjointed and janky.
