* The final episode is a complete reversal of the show's formula. In a season 1 or 2 episode, Orel would learn some kind of life lesson from one of the townsfolk, immediately take it to heart while going to its LogicalExtreme, and then learn a twisted SpoofAesop from Clay. In "Honor" Orel learns a lesson from Clay ("Honor thy father") then spends the whole episode conflicted about it as he can't actually find anything to honor his father for, and then learns a genuinely good aesop from Coach Stopframe about honoring himself, one of the few good things Clay did with his life.

* At the beginning of part two of "Nature", Orel doesn't wave to the camera / God for once, and is instead deep in prayer. [[MoralEventHorizon Considering the events of the episode,]] it's {{Foreshadowing}} for the fact that what will occur is going to ''heavily'' try Orel compared to the series' usual hijinks and inflict a permanent change to his character.

* Why does Clay always punish Orel for the wrong things? Well, most of the real problems Orel causes are the result of following Clay's (or Reverend Putty's) advice a little ''too'' literally. If Clay punished Orel for it, he'd be teaching Orel that you need to think carefully about his actions instead of blindly doing what authority figures tell him, which is the exact opposite of the mindset Clay's abuse is meant to instil in Orel.

* If you think about it, Clay really does have a dead-end job. [[spoiler: Once you're already the mayor, you really can't get much higher.]]
