* AccidentalMisnaming:
** Adam's teasing of Bernadette, calling her [[spoiler:Ralph]]... until she finally snaps and beats him up.
** Incidentally, calling ''any'' {{transsexual}} by their birth name is definitely not advisable. Not only ''will'' you piss them off, you may well be putting them in danger. AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle.

** Played with in a flashback, where Adam stops his uncle from molesting him by pulling out the drain. While the build-up isn't played for laughs at all and is appropriately disturbing the funny part is how Adam thwarts his uncle.
