* The three-part {{Disaster Dominoes}} building up to Steve and Myra's first kiss, with him making a mess of setting up folding chairs until he throws one into the grill, fumbling around her backyard furniture until he breaks a window, and finally struggling with her hammock.
* Carl has a dream of being a sheriff in the Old West with Urkel as a notorious gunman. Whenever someone mentions "Two Gun Urkel," a dramatic organ music cue plays with everyone looking around in confusion. After it plays for the fifth time, Urkel declares "Let's get together a posse and track down that dang orchestra!"
** Even better: After Carl wakes up, he and Steve have a nice talk, the soundtrack doing the usual "heartwarming theme"....and they both look around baffled "Where is that coming from?" The episode ends with them looking around for the source.

* In one episode, Eddie dents the car and resorts to illegal gambling with Steve (who never loses) to work up the money to pay for repairs. After he's caught and arrested, Carl gives him a long lecture about fessing up when making a mistake to prevent things from getting out of hand like that. Immediately afterward, Harriet gives Carl the exact same lecture as the second plot of the episode involved Carl accidentally throwing away the cremated ashes of Harriet's recently-deceased great aunt and trying to cover it up. Harriet even had to start her speech over because the audience was laughing so hard and she waited for it to die down.

* In the episode "Baker's Dozen", after trying Carl's secret family recipe, Lemon Tarts, Rachael thought of the idea of selling them.

** The subplot was also pretty funny; Harriet was fed up with being taken for granted, so she decided to go on strike. This is actually why half the stuff mentioned above was happening in the first place.
** After everyone apologizes, Harriet declares her "strike" over and is ready to clean up. Carl says that "I set the bad example, I'll set the good one" and tells the family to go out for dinner. "When you get back, the place will be spic and span!" As soon as they leave, some guys from "Spic and Span Cleaners" show up.
