** For example in one episode Jim explains that men and women's brains are wired so they won't remember certain things, Cheryl gets mad at him, only to later find herself trapped in the garage because none of the girls can remember the key code for the door, which her toddler son punches in effortlessly. She makes one last ditch effort to prove him wrong but can't even remember the code when hes just explained it to her.

* ShaggyDogStory: The episode "Spelling Bee" has Jim and Sheryl taking Gracie to places to compete for her Spelling Bee matches, which exhausts Jim and Sheryl. Near the end of the episode, Sheryl discovers that the only reason Gracie even bothers going through with these tournaments is because she gets to eat fried shrimps, at which point Sheryl convinces Gracie to throw the match, on the promise that Gracie doesn't have to win just to allow her to have fried shrimps. Gracie agrees... until it's revealed that the Spelling Bee grand champion will be given one year worth of fried shrimps as prize.
-->'''Jim''': [[OhCrap Crap]].
-->'''Sheryl''': Oh, let's face it, honey... it's just not our night.
