* PartingWordsRegret: Connie experiences this in "Plan B: Resistance" after [[spoiler: her boyfriend Mitch is seemingly murdered and Eugene and Katrina flee Odyssey to keep Eugene's research safe from Andromeda]], worrying that they didn't know how much she truly cared about them. When she later talks about this with Whit at [[spoiler:Mitch's funeral]] he tells her that they just have to trust that God "fills in the blanks for all the things we should have said"; Connie agrees, but counters that they "shouldn't expect Him to" before [[HeartwarmingMoments telling Whit that she loves him]].

* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Son]]: "Cover of Darkness" reveals that [[spoiler: Dalton Kearn intended to kidnap a seven-year-old Eugene, who was supposed to be going to see his father Leonard in Africa by train, in order to force Leonard into working for him on an archaeological dig; Eugene wasn't on the train, which crashed, leaving no survivors, and so Dalton took Leonard and his wife Thelma by force]].

* ObnoxiousInLaws: Millie Shanks plays this role in "For Better or For Worse", although as [[Bridezilla she's trying to force the wedding to be "traditional"]], she causes much more trouble for Connie and Katrina than she ever did to Eugene.

** Not even the somewhat goofier AnimatedAdaption is exempt from this. Some of the wilder episodes like Electric Christmas, Star Quest, and Flight To the Finish share shelf space with The Knight Travellers[[note]]Where the Imagination Station is stolen and altered into a mind control device[[/note]] and A Twist In Time and its starkly grim BadFuture[[note]]Fortunately, it was just a simulation, and (hopefully) is not the true future of Whit's End and the people associated with it.[[/note]].

* ConcealingCanvas: A safe hidden behind a picture of a safe in the episode "Hold Up!" Mr. Whittaker has a weird sense of humor.

* CoolOldGuy: Whit is one of the normal, down-to-Earth variety. Usually.
* CouchGag: The 1987-1991 version of the introduction had Whit introduce himself and explain he was working on his latest invention before saying "Hey, let's see if this thing works." Normally, it didn't (to which Whit would comment that it needed more work, but that's the exciting part because you never know what you'll discover along the way), although a few episodes depicted the invention as working properly.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: On the part of Chris. If something very serious or sad occurs in an episode directly before a break or when a DownerEnding, BittersweetEnding, or a [[EarnYourHappyEnding very well earned happy ending]] occurs, Chris typically sounds calm at best, solemn at worst, and generally less bubbly than usual. In the former case, she sometimes may not even announce the break at all. TropesAreNotBad, as it avoids MoodWhiplash. (Would Chris sounding light and cheerful directly after, say, someone witnessing the crucifixion of Jesus sound right to you?)
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative - Theatre critic Duncan Banquo's "I thought the [radio] play was the best I've ever seen you do" in "A Class Reenactment", directed at Edwin Blackgaard.
