* In "Angelica Breaks a Leg", one scene shows Angelica watching television while resting her "broken" leg. We never actually see what she's watching, but we do hear it: it's the sound of gunshots, and for reason, it makes Angelica burst out in laughter...

The ThanksgivingEpisode begins with an ImagineSpot inspired by the first Thanksgiving, starring the babies as the Native Americans. The IntendedAudienceReaction likely involved finding this adorable, but it becomes less so if the viewers instead imagine the babies falling victim to infanticide.

** The head of the company isn't just in it for the money and doesn't see her as a worthy successor. Remember, he is also the head of the company and choses his successor based on how he made it. Plus when he saw that she is willing to put kids in danger (basically KIDNAPPING THEM), I doubt he'd want her to get close to any kids again. Plus her theme park has apparently ninja guards and her assassintant is all too happy with jabbing his arm down a 4-year-old's throat. She's not a villain because she's good at her job, she's an authoritarian who enjoys scaring her employees and basically working them within an inch of their lives given how dangerous some of the animatronics are.

The IntendedAudienceReaction likely involved finding this adorable, but it becomes less so if the viewers instead imagine the babies falling victim to infanticide, shortly after the first Thanksgiving.

*** Which is actually brought up in the episode "The Baby Vanishes" where Drew acknowledges his shortcomings with disciplining Angelica, only for him to snap back to it at the end of the episode.

**What makes this even scarier to think about is that, if it weren't for his dumb luck, Tommy would've suffered the same fate. And even worse than that? Stu and Didi didn't know he was even at the post office. They never would have found out what happened to him.

*** Out-of-universe. InUniverse it could be explained that they are related and the same age.



** There are also a few instances of Chuckie not being around, and Tommy gives in to Angelica's bullying, whereas when Chuckie is around, Tommy usually stands up to her. The logic behind this appears to be that, despite there being four of them, the main characters are essentially two groups of two babies-- best friends Tommy and Chuckie, and siblings Phil and Lil. Phil and Lil could possibly be considered Chaotic Neutral characters, in the fact that they're more susceptible to Angelica's negative influence than Tommy and Chuckie, but generally have good intentions otherwise.\\

* Angelica being jealous of Susie in "Doctor Susie" if you remember that she had previously thought of herself as a doctor in "Rhinoceritis".

** He might be scared of the clowns ''because'' of the clothes, because he does call him "The Guy On The Oatmeal Box ''With the Scary Hat''"



* ''All Growed Up'' and ''All Grown Up'' a show a stark contrast in personalities and fashion. Everyone resembles their infant selves more (except for Susie whose afro was replaced with braids, similar to her younger version), Tommy was adventurous and lacked his passion for directing, Lil was still into gross stuff, etc. This is because ''All Growed Up'' is how the babies wanted and expected themselves to be as kids but ''All Grown Up'' is what really happened. How many people keep the same personality and wants from infancy to their teenage years?
* The Passover episode seems to {{Bowdlerise}} the last plague (changing it from "death of everyone's first born child" to [[NeverSayDie "first born child is 'taken away'"]]). But then you remember that in-universe Boris is ''telling'' the story to the babies, Angelica [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Chaz]]. Of ''course'' he's censoring it, because there are little kids listening to the story!

* In the episode "Angelica Nose Best," Angelica attempts to shrink her nose back to normal by telling truths, such as that the sky is blue, playgrounds are fun, and Grandpa Lou is old. The reason why this doesn't work (besides the obvious) is that those truths are all subjective (i.e. the sky is not always blue, not everyone finds playgrounds enjoyable, and not everyone would consider Lou elderly), as opposed to the objective truth she tells when she admits to her wrong-doings.

* The episode "Angelica for a Day" opens with a spoiled girl yelling at her dad to get her ice cream, and Drew says "I wouldn't want to be in his shoes." The joke here is that Drew has a spoiled daughter, but Angelica rarely screams at her dad like that. She acts more like a SpoiledSweet around him and is manipulative to get her own way. She's more of a SpoiledBrat around the babies.
