* At first, when Luke is seeing if he gets accepted into college, Haley still not understanding the "we regret to inform you..." line from college applications seems just like a callback from season 3. However, in season 3, when Haley got waitlisted, the letter also started with "we regret to inform you...", meaning that Haley was also anticipating if Luke got waitlisted like her.

* Jay's tendency to snark to his family. It's only when you really look at who and when he snarks do you realize he's not snarking because he's old fashion but because he just doesn't have many people in his family that share his interests and personality. Look at how quickly he became closer to Cam after finding out Cam loved/played football for instance. Likewise, Manny is willing (and wanting) to share in Jay's interests -- and again, Jay becomes pretty close to him in ways that perhaps go above and beyond the call of duty.

** Could possibly overlap with [[FridgeHorror Fridge Horror]] with the idea that their relationship stemmed from a subconscious yearning of a father-son relationship that they had both been deprived from. Perhaps, both found people that fulfilled their previous memories of a father and son figure and were then willing to develop that friendship as a way of replacing their previous father-son relationships that both had lost.

* Both Phil and Andy were being deprived of father-son relationships, with Luke separating from Phil and Andy's father dying during his early teen years. They both were then able to give each other love, support and guidance, forging a relationship that mirrored that of a father and son.

* Phil and Andy's relationship is implied to have developed through their identical interests and personalities. Yet, their friendship begun around the time that Luke was separating away from Phil and growing up. Additionally, Andy occasionally mentions his father, who died during his early teenage years, depicting him as a fun-loving, cheerful guy, much like Phil. Perhaps their relationship stems from both of them being deprived of father-son relationships that they had previously, and finding that love, support and guidance from each other.

* The show frequently demonstrates the [[ParentalSubstitute parental substitute]] trope, with the adults acting as a parent-figure to those whose parents are either abusive, neglectful or dead, shown with Gloria & Claire/Mitch, Jay & Manny and Phil & Andy. These relationships are not depicted to be any different to those with biological parents and children, showcasing that it is '' love'' rather than '' blood'' that makes a family.
