* ActorAllusion: This wouldn't be the last time Abigail Breslin comforts Joan Cusack on [[MySistersKeeper losing a family member]]. Or Hayden Panettierre was almost the victim [[{{Series/Heroes}} of statutory rape]].

* CrossesTheLineTwice: After Audrey is caught making out with a boy in the church, Helen jokes "you are SO going to Hell"

* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That's Gal/Guy!]]: Audrey, Henry and Sarah look uncannily like [[{{Series/Heroes}} Claire Bennet]], [[TeamoSupremo Captain Crandall]] and LittleMissSunshine, their mother is/was [[DesperateHousewives Lynette Scavo]], their school principal is [[SexAndTheCity Aidan Shaw]], and Helen works for [[Film/TheQueen Queen Elizabeth II]]. ** Pretty much any Garry or Penny Marshall film falls into this category. Don't forget the many people who also work for [[{{Film/ThePrincessDiaries}} Queen Clarise Rinaldi]] made an appearance here!

* {{Moe}}: Sarah naturally. Audrey as well at times.

A huge apartment in New York opens up but costs a fortune (''nine thousand'' a month). It's not stated what Helen's original rent is, but she has a nice apartment that's too small for the brood. They then move to a large apartment in Queens for $1200 a month, which is realistic.
