* {{Springtime For Hitler}}: The sarcastic ad campaign Frank throws together that he believes will get him fired, but ends up having a promotion offered instead.

* MoralMyopia: Frank Wheeler. He rudely dismisses the criticisms of Norma, who calls him out on being a MasterOfMixedMessage to Maureen while also trying to be empathetic. He also confesses his affair just to get guilt off him and provoke a reaction from April and is puzzled why April really isn't bothered.

* YourCheatingHeart: Frank has an affair with a secretary and April has a brief fling with Shep. Later, Frank explicitly invokes his affair just to get a reaction out of April. It doesn't work. She knows he's confessing it not out of nobility, but control.
